G. Harvey's Early Influences
Gerald Harvey Jones grew up in the heart of Texas and was inspired by the vast landscapes and gorgeous skies of that rugged setting. As a child, his father and grandfather regaled him with tales of the Old West, from cattle herding to the gold rush. Those scenes undoubtedly had an impact on Harvey, and his later work would feature imagery of the Old West and the Texas landscape.
He went on to earn a degree from North Texas State University and took a position teaching at UT Austin. He soon realized that his true passion was in creating, rather than teaching, and so he left that job to pursue an art career. Success soon followed — he has been a prolific and renowned artist ever since.
Themes and Specialties
G. Harvey is known for paintings that evoke a feeling of connection to a different place and time, with a deeper undertone of the connections between people that span those boundaries. His work includes scenes of the Civil War, quiet moments on horseback and visions of coming home to a rustic yet warm and inviting retreat. He is well known for his use of reflective light on water, whether that is a rain-slicked city street or a rural stream. His skies are also a thing of beauty, rich in depth and color, yet never overpowering the other elements of any given piece.
