For the artist Dennis Ziemienski, composition is key. It’s not just about the retro feel and cowboys. His use of light and style keeps his approach to the canvas full of optimism as well as nostalgia.
“Generally, my approach is to choose an element as the dominant feature, and everything else is subordinate,” Ziemienski said. “As a designer this makes the image stronger and demands your attention. My inspiration often comes from early 20th century painting.”
