For artist Joseph Alleman, an important motive to paint lies in understanding his surroundings. "I'm visually compelled by various forms of shape, value, pattern, etc. Through the process of painting, I gain new and deeper insight into my subject and its surroundings as these elements combine and communicate."
Working in both watercolor and oil, Joseph Alleman's paintings have become highly recognized and collected for their visionary portrayals of the West. As a signature member of both the American and National Watercolor Societies, he exhibits regularly through gallery, juried, and invitational shows, and has been a featured artist in the majority of contemporary fine art publications.
Residing in Northern Utah, Joseph finds a great deal of inspiration in the regions land, towns, and people which make it unique. "There is a beauty within the everyday and ordinary that only painting can reveal. I'm drawn to these subjects in hopes of making and sharing such discoveries."
