Gustave Carlson

Intro
Gustave Carlson

The ideas that I paint come from the agricultural landscape, particularly barns and farm like agrarian architecture, beach cottages, shacks, and decayed buildings.  I am drawn to the flat planes of landscape, exploring color, documenting the built structure, and studying my paintings over time.

I present my paintings as an opportunity for the viewer to reimagine the landscape.   A new opportunity to resurrect a new meaning from buildings that are somewhat decayed.  I am also fascinated with forgotten farmhouse interiors- older heirloom objects placed in contrast with new objects.  I find inspiration in yard sales and older furniture that you find placed outside in the landscape as if it was forgotten. This forms a new dialogue for both objects when placed together in interior architecture or interior painting.
