Ken Auster Wanted More


BIG BRUSHES, a lot of paint and simplified shapes allowed Ken Auster to create impressionistic images of complicated scenes.

In the mid-1990s, he became one of California's most celebrated plein-air painters. Eventually he realized that while painting nature was fun, he wanted more. Instead of only going to the coast and looking west, he also looked east and saw edges, cars and telephone poles. He rejoiced in this newfound ability to paint anything and everything street scenes, cafes, restaurants and bars and, of course, never far away was the beach, his first love.

In his paintings, Ken Auster captured the dynamic irony between the urban scene and the majesty of nature.
