Abend Gallery Promo

Brian Sostrom in Studio

Promo photograph for Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. I have solo show at this great gallery in August of 2020! This is going to be a huge exhibit and I am digging in to make my very best work.

About the artist:

My name is Brian Sostrom. I am a full-time painter, and a lifetime painter, living in North Idaho. I paint what I consider to be psychological landscapes. Inspired by nature but never striving to do what the camera can.

Road through Fire

By Fire, 24”x18” acrylic

As an artist I often feel compelled to make work. This year I created s body of work called “Apocalyptic Bloom”. They weren’t paintings the the galleries representing me wanted. It is not artwork that my average collector would be into. Still I took this side road that represented a large part of 2019. I will always follow my artistic curiosities and interests.

This painting is on display at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. A new gallery to represent me since I started the journey.

Boom

Distant Thunder 14”x11” acrylic on wood panel

I am continuing my recycling of boards. Half a dozen paintings I liked but not enough to keep have been stripped off to become something new!

I am really pretty addicted to apocalyptic cloud formations. The beauty and power are fascinating. This one is small but mighty!
