John Koehler

John Fitzgerald Koehler is an American contemporary artist currently working and living in Dayton, Ohio.

"The innovation of the technique I utilize in my work is based on years of

experimentation with oil and acrylic poaint, aniline dyes, various mediums, and the manipulation of these materials through the use of many tools. The resulting paintings tend to create themselves and are not entirely predictable; which parallels the natural world my work emulates. The amorphous shapes and colors are easily found in nature; whether being under a microscope, through a telescope, or viewed by our own eyes. I pour the paint and create a reaction that mimics natural phenomena, forming images in an unorganized unity. A thick clear medium is often applied to finished pieces, providing a looking glass into an ever evolving natural reaction. The viewer is left to find resonance between the piece and their own perception."
