Ed Kamuda is a self-taught painter well-established in the Seattle area for more than thirty years. With a highly personal vision of reality, he reduces three-dimensional elements to primitive, linear shapes that have the simplicity of folk art yet manage to retain the sophisticated resonance of Expressionism.

Through his spare, evocative images, Kamuda demonstrates a reverie for nature and a meaningful connection with the original subjects. His stacked compositions of local scenes conjure images by Paul Klee. Kamuda’s work is characterized by a rich, earthy surface depth created with layers of oil paint and wax. The physicality is heightened by palette knife marks.

In this new exhibit, Kamuda has also created a group of large-scale gouache paintings. These pieces share the soft and dreamy movement of his oil paintings. The water-based media allows the shapes to dance on the picture plane creating a sense of lightness. Kamuda’s paintings contain a mysticism reminiscent of work by such painters from the Northwest School as Morris Graves and Guy Anderson, the latter a friend of Kamuda’s.
