Zack Lobdell is an artist based in Saratoga Springs, New York. His paintings were described in a recent article in Saratoga Living Magazine as “...nothing short of hypnotic, subtly seducing the viewer’s gaze into a tidal pool of abstract motions, textures and surprising colors. In Lobdell’s paintings, there are a lot of nebulous references to landscapes, natural forms and flowing organic movements...familiar figures emerge, dissolve, disappear and then reemerge.” (~Jeff Dingler)

 

There’s a foreboding in the approaching storm, the same tension emanates from the world around us as the climate shifts to crisis and our future and habitat are constantly threatened. My paintings are an attempt to convey a shared emotion and anticipation as we experience this all encompassing charge in the shadow of the coming storm. #natureofresistance #crisisofimagination  ~ZL

 

Lobdell has been influenced by the works of Vrylin Roussin, Eric Aho and Gerhardt Richter, to name a few. He has shown and sold his work in New York, California, Colorado, Florida, Connecticut and Massachusetts, as well as many exhibitions in the Saratoga Springs, NY region where he maintains his working studio and showroom.

"...Lobdell uses a highly evolved technique... to express emotion and evoke powerful, spiritual visions. Three of his works – Sequence, Chrysalis, and The Traveler, which are all large mixed media works on canvas – are stunning."    ~William Belcher
