Raimonds Staprans : art of tranquility & turbulence by Paul J Karlstrom( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1947 the young Raimonds Staprans emigrated with his family from Latvia to America and for the past half century has lived and worked in the San Francisco Bay Area. In Raimonds Staprans: Art of Tranquility and Turbulence, Paul Karlstrom investigates the realism and abstraction in Staprans' work, focusing on the more edgy and self-revealing paintings by bringing the artist's life experience and personal psychology prominently into the equation. Karlstrom recognizes that the meaning of Staprans' work cannot be understood solely in terms of the painterly skill and aesthetic beauty that characterize the landscapes, marines, and still lifes. Neither can it be fully appreciated in the minimalist abstraction with which he qualifies his realism. Rather, the key to understanding is hidden in the secret life and philosophical preoccupation that emerged in the author's interviews with the artist."--BOOK JACKET
