Aaron Kloss

Why do I paint the subjects I choose?  I’m simply influenced by the beautiful landscapes around me which feature bluestone outcroppings covered with thick Birch, Maple, And Evergreen forests. Wildlife is abundant, and so is the inspiration to paint and create the breathtaking vistas all around me.

I’ve been painting exclusively on black canvas for the last 15 years, and I often leave the black canvas showing through the paint to outline the different elements of the composition. The exposed black canvas gives my work its distinctive graphic feel and compels the viewer to explore the image, much like exploring a quiet forest, taking in all the sights and sounds the forest has to offer.

My style is primarily expressive, but I enjoy incorporating enough realism to my work so that the viewer can identify with the image. I also like to focus on lighting and contrast, and you’ll often see shadows and light filtering through my work.  People are often intrigued by the brush strokes they see in my paintings, and I often complete a painting with only one brush, which gives my work its unique and distinctive look.

When I’m painting I like to put a work on a display shelf and view it in different lighting throughout the day, then continue adding color until I’m satisfied. After the dust settles and the painting is finished for the day, I often will look over my shoulder and see that one of my beautiful children has been copying me , creating a little masterpiece of their own, which always brings a smile to my face. Artists often agonize over every brush stroke, while children express themselves freely in any medium and any surface. I hope I never lose that childlike passionate joy of creating.

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up”
