Deconstructed Landscape Painting

I have recently begun a series of paintings exploring what I call Landscape Deconstruction. I am reducing the colors, elements and tools used to create the work to essentials. I am using acrylic stains and watercolors with a limited pallet. The shapes that are formed or discovered either by accident or design are intriguing in that they create depth and narrative more expressionist than abstract. This is just deceloping so if you have a comment or suggestion please feel free to add it.

These works are on display in Albany Ga.

Donald Kolberg graduated with a Fine Arts Degree from California State University, Los Angeles. He taught at the Los Angeles School of Art and co-founded Art Core, an organization dedicated to the open dialogue and display of the work of emerging artists. He continued his Master studies at Otis Art Institute. While at Otis Art Institute his teacher and main influence was internationally recognized painter Arnold Mesches. In Artcore he worked under the guidance of Lydia Takashita. With their teaching Donald learned the value of depth, texture and form in images and surface. He incorporated this into his concept of Life Forms, the portrayal of the human figure as a landscape of life and a celebration of form through Sculpture and Painting.
