"Beauty in art is the delicious notes of color one against the other. It is just as fine as music and it is just the same thing, one tone in relation to another tone. Real sentiment in art comes as it does in music from the way one tone comes against another independently of the literary quality of the subject - the way spots of color come together produces painting. . . . . . There are just so many tones in music and just so many colors but it's the beautiful combination that makes a masterpiece."
- Hawthorne


Artist Statement:

"I am a landscape and still life painter. I paint the ordinary that surrounds us, in order to illuminate how extraordinary life is - but often, we "unlearn to see it" as we grow up. I am curious about the intersection of the natural world, in it's beauty and untamed energy, with the human world. I've immersed myself in painting the St. Croix River and surrounding area for the past seventeen years. Each time I start a painting, I am fascinated in how nature, particularly the river, reveals layers of mystery that include a sense of place, a sense of time, and the concept that the fleeting moment can be captured and experienced by others in the future, through my art.

It is important to me, as a part of the process, to be out in the elements, because it continues to teach me what I have yet to learn about the cycle of life: growth, dormancy, and rebirth. It also requires much of me as an artist, rethinking the important elements that translate the specifics of location, time, and the changing emotion of the day onto canvas: capturing atmosphere, studying the changing, nature of light, noting subtle temperature relationships and vibrations, structuring underlying abstract armatures, honing in on a design and composition, massing shapes.

Because I am a painter, it is difficult to describe my work with words. I am after authenticity and integrity in my craft. I appreciate art that is grounded in academic training, but goes beyond that and communicates discovery and rawness. I use the tools of color, line, and value to build the foundation for the initial concept of what I want to share through texture and brush work. Over the past decade, my work has grown in freedom and maturity and I look forward to the unknown that is revealed to me with each new canvas."

Kami Polzin is an inspired painter and an inspiring teacher whose enthusiasm for painting and teaching is contagious. Kami grew up just North of Stillwater, MN on the family farm where her daily wanderings taught her to have a great love and respect for the qualities of the natural world that would later provide her with the inspiration that has led her on a life long journey as a painter.
She is greatly influenced by a number of painters including Cecilia Beaux, George Inness, Isaac Levitan, Joaquin Sorolla, Repin, the 19th century Russian painters and many American painters both living and deceased. Part of Kami`s path as a painter has included studying with some of the countries finest painters including Mary Pettis, Joseph Paquet, Marc Hanson, John Foote, and recently taken a workshop on the Chesapeake Bay with Camille Przewodek. She has explored many areas of study including Classical Realism, the prismatic palette and portrait painting. Her first love is painting outside on location where she can experience first hand how the light plays across a field of prairie grass and how to translate and portray her vision of that experience to you.
Kami`s enthusiasm for what she does has spread and she is a sought after instructor in both studio and plein air landscape painting. If not in the field painting and teaching, Kami can be found at her Rivertown Studio in Stillwater, MN painting. She has recently returned from Tuscany Italy where she painted and taught a plein air workshop.

Her work can be seen at the Tamarack House Gallery in Stillwater, MN, or by appointment at her Rivertown Studio.
