“While his earlier works tended towards abstraction, it was during his residency in Europe that Dewantoro was strongly influenced by the Romantic landscapes of 19th century visionaries William Turner and John Constable, initiating the development of his own cinematic landscape paintings. His monochromatic palettes of mostly black, purple, white and grey, lend his paintings an enigmatic quality. Abandoned houses, churches, and bridges viewed at a distance appear like fading memories through the misty filter he creates. Dewantoro has since expanded his color palette to include brighter, earthier tones, but maintains his focus on the landscape, a mixture of urban elements and the natural environment decidedly void of human presence, heightening the sense of drama they evoke.”
