For artist Joseph Alleman, an important motive to paint lies in understanding his surroundings. "I'm visually compelled by various forms of shape, value, pattern, etc. Through the process of painting, I gain new and deeper insight into my subject and its surroundings as these elements combine and communicate." 
Working  in  watercolor and oil, Joseph Alleman's paintings have become  recognized and collected for their visionary portrayals of the Contemporary American West.  As a  signature member of  the American and National Watercolor Societies, his work  is exhibited regularly through gallery, juried, and invitational shows, and has been featured  in numerous books and magazines both nationally  and internationally.
Residing in Northern Utah, Joseph finds a great deal of inspiration  in the regions land, towns, and people which make it unique. "There is a beauty within the everyday and ordinary that only painting can reveal. I'm drawn to these subjects in hopes of making and sharing such discoveries."

"The artistic lens through which northern Utah artist Joseph Alleman sees and portrays the landscape is one that exposes the unadorned essence of a scene. Quiet and brooding in tone, his paintings capture the spartan silhouettes  of the subjects...scenes that recall our connection with the land and life, captured in moments of stillness." -Watercolor Artist magazine
"...Alleman approaches his canvases with a contemporary eye and traditional technique enhanced by an innate maturity and evocative sense of time and place that have drawn comparisons to Hopper and Wyeth."-Southwest Art magazine
When Joseph Alleman paints a barn, he's not just painting four walls and a roof...he's marking a place in the universe, and he's time-stamping it with his brush, forever committing that moment, however brief it may have been, to a canvas that will likely outlive him and all who see it."-American Art Collector magazine
