Meet Arlon Rosenoff.
He is the real deal, an artist whose first memories as a young child are memories of drawing. He grew up exploring family farms and the outdoors in Colorado and Montana. Capturing places and objects of affection in drawings has been part of his daily life. Painting is fundamental to the way Arlon Rosenoff experiences and appreciates life.
“Everywhere I look, I see a painting”, he says. “ 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. Capturing the light, texture, and geometry of everyday life is my artistic ambition.”
Arlon paints with a palette knife because it gives him the opportunity to interact with paint in a very tactile, expressionistic way. Each viewer of his art is able to gain a strong sense of his physical interaction with the paint, with each stroke and manipulation visible forever. Because he is a frequent demonstration artist at art fairs and arts events, the way he works and the quality of his technique is shared
with those who linger to appreciate. Arlon will be showing both his finished works and doing demos throughout the upcoming Sammamish Arts Fair, October 13th and 14th.
His work is reflective of a balance and tension between old and new. A love of impressionism and representationalism yet a desire to explore contemporary themes creates transitional work. He produces both small works/studies and larger exhibition and gallery sized works that represent the forefront of his work direction. Arlon owns and operates his own studio gallery in Kirkland which was featured in a recent issue of American Art Collector Magazine, among a number of publications showcasing his paintings. His works are in private collections all over the United States. “Both established collectors and new patrons will find work in my portfolio that suits them.”
Artists like Arlon enrich the community and encourage us to value one-of –a-kind artistry. His skill is a testament to creative mastery as well as the continued growth of an engaging artist. He is poised with paint and palette to show you the light.
