“My art is an attempt to combine the elements of an impressionist landscape with the energy and brushwork of abstract expressionism. I work directly on canvas or paper with no reference, intuitively using the paint to create depth and show movement throughout the picture. I try to create a space that the viewer can explore and experience in a way that is moving, but still feels real. My inspirations come from both the tangible beauty of the natural world, and the intangible but expressive power of music. It is a way to connect the external with the internal, and to convey things that words cannot express.”
Carl Stieger graduated from California College of Arts and Crafts in 1997 and has been living and painting in the East Bay ever since.
