About

Influenced by the natural environment, Ed Kamuda is known for his use of simplified shapes that symbolically, and pictographically convey elements of the landscape. He works with a palette knife rather than a brush, building up and scratching away oil pigment before finishing the surface with a wax varnish to create textural interest. This method results in lively, facetted surfaces that complement his bold lines and shapes, and serve to reinforce his interpretation of nature as strong and wondrous. His mystical bent and reverence of nature link him to the Northwest School of painters. "Little Town" is an excellent example of the artist's abstracted and unique approach to capturing the Northwest landscape. Vivid reds, blues, yellows, and oranges fill the composition, complemented by deep brown and navy pigments. The gray sky alludes to foggy Washington afternoons, while humble homes nestled in mountains and valleys become one with their natural surroundings. Form and line are reduced to primitive, bold elements, sometimes playful, but ever sophisticated. Trees, dwellings, and the illusion of patterned light emerge from the scene. This highly-abstract composition reveals the artist's love for pattern with variations on square, triangular, and circular blocks, turning the landscape into a vibrant tapestry. Kamuda's approach to abstraction and the playfulness of his imagery liken his work to that of artists like Paul Klee. Ed Kamuda, who has been showing in the Northwest region since 1978, was honored with a solo exhibition at the Museum of Northwest Art in 1995. His paintings are included in the collections of Microsoft, SAFECO, Zymogenetics and Washington schools through Art in Public Places Program. In 1999, he was included in the Whatcom Museum of History and Art’s Beyond the Horizon: Artists of the Rural Landscape. Harris Harvey Gallery began representing the artist in 2001.
