John Kluchka

John Kluchka is an abstract meditation artist and photographer working in color compositions using large-format metal, acrylic and canvas.  The work strips away traditional representation constructs of line, geometry, hierarchy, shape and texture to create agency for color, hue, value, gradation and context.  It's a visual architecture with a different impact for each viewer. 

 

As examples of modern MinimalismAbstractNon-Objective or Op art, the work is at home in evidence-based art therapy environments and mindfulness meditation spaces.
