Mixed Media painting by Sam Kuchwara

Sam Kuchwara is a gifted local artist in the Scranton area, which he writes about his work:

Most of my work consists of landscape paintings; mixed media pieces or a combination of the two, creating a surface out of found objects then painting directly over it.  Using found objects not only gives me a chance to reuse what might go to waste. This directs me by the color and texture of the material, and within the finished piece, found objects provide texture and can bring about a wider variety of associations and memories from the viewer. I am especially inspired by music as I feel using a variety of media is similar to sampling and try to recreate moods, imagery, and textures that songs remind me of.

Sam is also having an upcoming exhibit at Northern Light Espresso Bar on September 1, from 6-9 p.m for September First Friday.
