Artist Statement / CV / Bio

Bio:

Joe Kaz on location A life long resident of New Jersey, Joe lives on the Sourland Mountain near Neshanic Station and is primarily self-taught as an artist.  Joe has been painting for many years, and his work has received much recognition in the time that he has been exhibiting. Using oils, many of Joe's smaller works are painted on location, en plein air, while his larger works are usually done in the studio based on plein air studies, photographs and memories.  Joe prefers to paint the land he is familiar with and the majority of his paintings are done within a few miles of where he lives.  Being an avid bicyclist gives Joe a means of exploring the back roads, and many of his paintings are scenes along his favorite cycling routes.
