Impasto is a type of technique in oil painting, which describes visible brush-stroke textures or palette-knife marks on the surface of the painting.
Instead of portraying the precision of the object, impressionist works emphasize the color, the tone, the texture and more.
Le Conte’s Impasto series explore beyond the traditional layouts of jewelry, conveying new ideas of form, which entail a harmonious first impression through brush-stroke textures of gold and precious gemstones.
