Artist Statement

Artist: Karin Lynn Neuvirth – Expressionistic Palette Knife Paintings

I grew up on a farm in Southern Minnesota where the winters were always difficult for me. The cold grey days took a toll on my mood and definitely influenced my color palette. I have always been drawn to things with vibrant contrasting colors. These bright colors, (especially the warmer ones) always brighten my mood. I exaggerate the colors in my landscapes in attempt to simulate an oasis in a crazy world.

I do most of my work with a palette knife. I begin my paintings with an abstract, colorful under-painting which will direct the entire piece. As I begin to work in the details of the painting, the subject will slowly emerge, leaving a certain level of abstraction which gives a sense of spontaneity.

I try to paint a small painting every day and post them to my daily painting blog
