Artist Glen Tarnowski
GLEN TARNOWSKI -
Glen Tarnowski was born in Southern California, in 1961. His formal education in oil painting began at the age of eight when his innate talent for painting and unique perception of color revealed itself in his first art class. He continued his formal art education at California Lutheran University and The Pasadena Art Center College of Design, separated by extensive self-study in the art capitals of Europe. He later returned to California Lutheran University to teach painting.
Tarnowski brings stunning vitality, depth, and emotion to his still-life paintings. He is influenced by an intensive formal education in art and the painstaking study of the works of Old World Masters Rembrandt, Reubens and Chardin. Tarnowski's use of Chiaroscuro techniques provides his still-lifes with a vibrant dichotomy of old world feeling and contemporary realism. Tarnowski has created in fact "Modern Allegorism" , a whimsical and paradoxical approach to transform everyday 21st century objects into a visual essay on the modern condition. - Wiki
