John Karl Claes
About The Artist
Claes’ paintings of the agricultural landscape of the American West have been described by the Sacramento Bee art critic Victoria Dalkey as, “Original... [he uses] deeply saturated color in his raw and romantic landscapes with dramatic skies. His works can move towards abstraction and the color investigation of Mark Rothko.” Claes' work is represented in galleries throughout the Western and Midwestern United States. He currently resides with his wife and two sons in California’s Central Valley where he also maintains his studio.
