Welcome to the Jaren Dahlstrom's website, where you will find a selection of his paintings and prints. Plus information about his current, up-coming and recent one-person exhibitions and group shows. He has for the past ten years been working on his most recent series of paintings and prints that capture what he calls "abstract reality" and are based on reflections. He sometimes paints exactly what he sees and at other times he creates a more abstracted image. The fustion of fractured light generates forms, creating contrasts and intense colors, while producing often confused lines and distorted shapes. Sometimes these same images are further manipitulated in the computer and then painted. Creating a style of painting that seems some how familiar, yet new. Often you have no idea what created the original reflection, perhaps it is a fishing boat at a dock in the bay, a reflection of a buiding in a Venice canal, or a church in the Stravinsky Fountain in Paris. Please take a look at his paintings and prints, we hope you will enjoy what you see.
Some comments left by vistors at his One-Person Show at the Littman Gallery, University of Portland included: "Striking, bold & beautiful artwork, a joy to view & interact with...", ...True Artists reveal mystic truths after all...yet again...and all in the water.", and "There are things you cannot see when you stand close. The colors are beauitful...the paintings have real soul."
