Aleah Koury Art Prints
Aleah Koury (1952-) is one of the most innovative artists working in the United States today and manages to consistently surprise and delight with his ability to explore new mediums and subject matter. Aleah Koury is an impressionist with a contemporary flair as evidenced by his command of subject matter ranging from mysterious abstracted landscape and stately romantic gardens to his boldly geometric yet purely harmonious jazz series.
The artist relies on the sensory use of color in his work which evokes a mood that is soft, yet intense. The palette in his atmospheric pastels simulates landscapes with subtle horizons, separating earth, water and sky. Rich in color, Koury's abstract landscapes depict impressionistic skies which flow gracefully into horizons accented with dunes and reeds. Rich, jewel-toned clouds sweep across skies of contrasting and complementary colors, creating romantic, modern landscapes.
The recipient of numerous awards and honors, including the 1978 Ford Foundation Fellowship, Koury's works are included in the collections of MCI Telecommunications, Metropolitan Life Insurance, USAir, Exxon, Eastman Kodak Company and Hitachi Data Systems.
