The abstract oil paintings shown here include Ken's studio work. Lund's inspiration comes from landscapes and personal experiences. Using his own photography, Ken's goal is to deconstruct the landscape scenes and portray their core elements. It's Ken's personal life events, for which many experience (love, loss, joy, pain), that he uses to drive the color combinations and feel. Using atmosphere, color planes, knife texture, and under painting to guide the painting process, Ken strives to unify all elements to produce a universal piece of work that any viewer can relate to.
Ken was raised in various regions across Maine. After graduating the University of Maine at Presque Isle with a Bachelors of Fine Arts, Ken spent the next 10 years living in the central coast region of California. During that time, Lund understudied with live event painter, Greg Kalamar. Soon after, Lund began capturing live events all across California. Now living in Maine, Ken offers live event painting services all across New England. In addition to Lund's live event work, he is also dedicated to his studio work primarily focused on landscapes in abstract and impressionistic style.
