Profile: Anton Pavlenko
"I prefer to focus less on capturing a visual snapshot
Self-taught oil painter, Anton Pavlenko, creates expressive works evocative of the Oregon landscape near his home and studio. The paintings are very personal, an exploration not only of the subject, but of his deep sensual connection to the moment he is observing and painting. They border on the abstract while retaining a strong connection to the landscape. His work has been included in many juried exhibitions across the country and has been featured in national publications. He has won numerous top awards for his paintings.
When you do work outdoors, what are you looking for in a subject? How do you retain your initial emotional response to the subject within your painting?
