About the artist
Abstract artist. Stone mason. Retired poet. JF Kuehnen, one guided by a feeling, an incident, a thought, a sensation. Through a palette that makes its own decisions as to which colours will be used and mixed, he pours energy and texture into his canvasses, letting the evolution of the painting determine his movements. Influenced not only by his surroundings, but by the landscape within, he experiments with various techniques and methods in order to convey the depth of vision and feeling of his experiences. Whether it be the isolation of the woods that line the Big East River, the distant horizon reflected on the sea in Stoupa, the crowded, claustrophobic sidewalk of early afternoon on Yonge Street, or the dreams that come with awareness, he takes these moments and reinterprets them, revealing them not as what they were but what they are.
Kuehnen’s studio is located in the basement of his Huntsville ON home, which he enjoys with his wife and two children.
