'Nature is where all the inspiration and colors for a lifetime are always waiting.' This is the conclusion talented painter Ken Elliott has come to after over forty years in the art business. Four decades spent observing technique, and establishing a wealth of understanding on the use of light, lines and color, led Elliott to develop his own compelling style.

From the Gallery: 

Altering, perfecting and abstracting his perception of nature, rich bold color and vibrant shapes emanate from Ken Elliott's canvasses. The fascination with the endless palette provided by nature inspired his latest collection of work, 'Color,' an exhibition opening at Mirada Fine Art on Friday, May 6.  Rendered in vividly modern hues, his landscapes simultaneously convey powerful movement and deep serenity.  'I don't try to recreate nature (even Monet said he never got that right).  Instead, my work is a simplification and exaggeration of elements found within a landscape,' Ken tells us.

Painting is not a linear process for this artist.  He usually works on several pieces at a time. Elements of one piece spur experimentation in another.  Jumping between work with oil paints and pastels allows differing emphasis on line structure, color depth and illumination.  And decades of experience have taught Ken to not discount the potential of a 'mistake.'  Just as in nature, Elliott has discovered that an imperfection can often be the most visually interesting component.

The artist's work stands independent of any specific place or time. They are a combination of the glory Ken Elliott sees in the world around him, and his own vivid imagination.  Grounded in unifying illumination, each piece somehow portrays both a kinetic energy and inherent calm.

Don't miss this remarkable exhibition!

Ken's original oils and works on paper are exhibited in hundreds of galleries and collected from coast to coast. One of his works was recently used in the movie Concussion. His artworks are in numerous private and public collections including: the Ritz Hotel Denver, Four Seasons Hotel Denver and Vail, the Mayo Clinic, Boston General, Hewlett Packard, Kaiser-Permanente, Blue Shield, Hitachi, The David and Lucille Packard Foundation, Holland Cruise Lines and many more.

The exhibit continues through May 31
