Philip Juttelstad, artist
“I have enjoyed the study of the regional artists of the Pacific Northwest that have contributed to this style of work; Carl Hall, Carl Morris and C.C. McKim, among others. In my work that depicts the built environment, I look for the hand of man on the face of nature and try to depict the shapes, planes and spatial relations of structure and the interesting interdependencies that buildings can create within the landscape. Tonality within the landscape is also a favorite subject of mine and I enjoy the exploration of the effects of atmosphere, light and shadow.”
