Organic Interludes
Dan Larsen - Organic Interludes
Dan Larsen
March 10, 2010 - April 11, 2010
6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

   Dan Larsen is a Northwest native descended from a long line of fine artists and craftsmen with his family's local roots tracing back to the time when tall ships explored the far reaches of Puget Sound.

Larsen has been expressing his artistic gifts in all types of art media since he was a small child. A graduate of Washington State University, he earned degrees in Construction Management and Business Administration with a minor in Industrial Design.  


While he has been involved in construction for the last 30 years, Larsen's passion for the art process has been a continuing exploration into any new potential industrial medium.  In recent years, he has increasingly focused on developing his own unique art form using a variety of industrial materials.  The current paintings are created utilizing an industrial resin formulated to include microscopic heat treated glass flakes, which give the paintings extra depth and durability.

The artist's current paintings have an emotional power and raw primal organic appeal. Larsen's work jolts the senses with an intensely detailed explosion of infinite shapes and riotous color. Each work emanates its own unique upbeat mood and personality, imparting the sensation of playful emotion being conveyed directly and not merely being seen with the eyes.

One art enthusiast was heard to exclaim, "These paintings make Jackson Pollock look tired."   However, when seeing one of his paintings for the first time, most viewers are compelled to simply blurt out "Wow!"
