New Paintings

I have been exploring the personality of paint by layering acrylic paint, papers and a variety of other textural surfaces. I have combined this with surrealistic conceptual works that delve into astrology and symbolism. Feel free to let me know what you think. Taurus (24 x 36) is about my sign and how I feel about it, Once the Bird is Released (16 x 20) refers to the symbol of a bird released in a painting referring to a woman releasing her innocence and She Has Always Danced With Fire (18 x 24) while an erotic work is also related to Native American culture.

Taurus   Once the Bird is Released   She has always danced with Fire

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.
