Cody Page is a painter working in the Middle West. He works in traditional media, oil and acrylic. Treating the canvas as an object to be viewed in person, Cody works large and paints with a gestural style leaving brushstrokes and early elements of the painting process visible in the finished canvas. It is the intent of the painter to depict sincere, ordinary subject matter accessible to a wide audience. Cody draws inspiration from life focusing more on creating a lively composition over depicting subjects in proportion. His pictures are figurative and depict a narrative using models to create the intended scene. He is influenced by Post-Impressionism, American Regionalism, and the Golden Age of American illustration.
