Curtis Stewart Jaunsen

Statement

After 20 years of practice as a professional architect, I spent 2 years—from 2002 to 2004—studying realist art at the Florence Academy of Art, in Florence, Italy. The academy's teaching methods are modeled after those of the 19th century French Academy to revive abandoned classical painting methods and craft, the foundation of which is the ability to see and render nature accurately. The education I received gave me a much greater appreciation for the beauty and pleasure of art that comes from direct and focused observation. In all of my work I try to engage the subtle variations of light and form as deeply as I can, however, lately I have also been exploring more abstract attitudes regarding the manipulation of paint on the painting surface. A balance between the two attitudes or approaches creates a tension that I have found to be very exciting.
