Trailside Galleries is pleased to present a showcase of news works by Utah artist Jeremy Winborg. The show will be on exhibit from March 19 through April 7.
Winborg is best known for his figurative work of Native American subjects that blend realism with abstract backgrounds. He has had a passion for creating art since he was a child. He grew up in Utah working in an art studio alongside his father who was an illustrator and began receiving awards and honors at a young age.
He was inspired to start painting Native American figures when his Navajo niece, Layla, was born. Since then, he has focused on creating Native American pieces that preserve a bit of history on each canvas. His paintings feature Native Americans dressed in traditional, authentic clothing with a focus on historical accuracy. Winborg is well known for bold brushwork, pallet knife work and interesting, colorful backgrounds. He enjoys the juxtaposition of the realistic portraiture and abstract, loose backgrounds, He notes, "I like to go wild with my backgrounds. The abstract backgrounds are exciting to look at and there's a peacefulness about the figures and faces where your eye can rest."
Winborg, his wife Danielle and five children have made Cache Valley, Utah home.
