Arthur Kvarnstrom Artist Bio:
Arthur Kvarnstrom is a landscape painter whose work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States, including Trahern Gallery at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville Tennessee and the Noyes Museum in Oceanville, NJ. In New York his paintings have been exhibited in solo shows at the Prince Street Gallery where he has been a member for ten years. New York group exhibitions include the George Billis Gallery and the Kouros Gallery. Recently he was awarded an artist's residency by the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation on Cranberry Island Maine. He has an MFA from Kent State.. He currently lives in Manhattan .Painting outside on site offers a set of experiences completely different from studio painting. Being outside, immersed in the sights, sounds and smells that are an inevitable part of the environment, provides sensory input not available in the studio. I like to think that these ephemeral and peripheral experiences somehow become part of the final work and are subsequently communicated to the art audience.While there are some distinct disadvantages to painting outside, with each season providing its own unique inventory of miseries, the positives offset the negatives. Working directly from nature encourages freedom from formula. Since everything changes quickly it also supports the cultivation of simplicity of means, boldness, directness and a reliance on intuition. Im constantly striving to incorporate these into my painting repertoire.
