Carl Linstrum is a professional artist and full-time professor of foundation studies at SCAD Atlanta. The foundation of his work is beauty, in both subject and technique; however, his choices are motivated by his desire for deeper meaning and communication through visual means. His current work addresses themes of family history, the functions (and fallacies) of memory and the importance of spirituality.
"I am often seduced by beauty. I am drawn in by the stimulating visual, the color, the light. My seduction is only sustained, however, if there is interest beyond the surface. I must have somewhere to go, something to think about after the impact of the first impression fades. This is the very same philosophy that I apply to my painting." ~ Carl Linstrum, Atlanta GA
