Bob Koons

Broomfield, CO
January 1 - March 29, 2005

Bob Koons uses his paintings to explore the use of landscape as subject. He begins by appropriating romantic, representational landscape painting sources and scans them as digital files, manipulating them into abstract images. Koons then meticulously copies these images by hand back into the analog format of a painting. Notes the painter: “The resulting object weaves back and forth between a natural and artificial presentation of landscape and between abstraction and representation. He received his BA in Studio Art from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN and his MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Colorado in Boulder.
