The Artist Says:


ARTIST STATEMENT
 
I paint with a palette knife because it gives me the opportunity to interact with paint in a very tactile, expressionistic way. Each viewer of my art is able to gain a strong sense my physical interaction with the paint, with every stroke and manipulation visible forever. The surfaces of my paintings are very telling, sometimes resembling a mosaic of palette knife strokes. Being blessed with an unusual first name allows me to sign my work with my given name.
 





Collectors Say:


The joy of Arlon Rosenoff's art stems from the overt celebration of color and texture in quotidian objects of beauty: the bow of a ship, the curve of a cheek, the interplay of landscape and sky. In this celebration, we find an exploration of surface and reflection: the blending of frontiers between hull and sea, sail and sky suggest a transcendental homogeneity; the mesmeric distortion of images --across water, in a truck's rain-slicked hood, in the silver surface of your common antemeridian toaster -- lead the viewer to consider the inherent, often ignored richness of our days and ways. Arlon's chromatic indulgence is a paean and homage to Life as we are privileged to find it. - Caryn M.

BIOGRAPHY
My first memories as a young child are memories of drawing. My parents had grown up as farmers and ranchers in Colorado and Wyoming, and I spent younger days exploring family farms and the outdoors. Capturing places and objects of affection in drawings have been part of my daily life. Starting to paint seriously later in life - largely self-taught - painting has changed the way I experience and appreciate life.

Although I follow my own internal compass, I love being compared to Vincent Van Gogh. For what my work lacks in sophistication or cleverness of most "modern art", I prefer it makes up for it in the genuineness of instinctive, self-taught and passionate work.
  
Everywhere I look, I see a painting. I have a great appreciation for the light, texture, and geometry that occur in nature and in life. All places, people, and things have inherent beauty. A rustic old truck, desolate place, or busy main street can emit peace, beauty, and a sense of place. Artistically capturing the impressions of light, texture, and geometry of everyday life is my artistic ambition.

WORK DIRECTION
My portfolio is reflective of a balance and tension between old and new. A love of impressionism and representationalism yet a desire to explore contemporary themes results in [...]
