Artist Statement

Ken Russack started his painting career as a freshman in high school under the tutelage of one of his early mentors, Maynard Sandol. He continued to paint and take classes during his underclass studies at Oswego State. He then took a 30- year hiatus, moved to Vermont, raised a family, and never got rid of his paints.

One day he was drawn to the idea of plein air painting and what became a minor obsession of grasping the nuances and complexities of this new found art. Ken studied under several key individuals including Fiona Cooper, Carolyn Walton, Mark Boedges, Charley Hunter, Tim Horn, Colley Whisson. Georg Van Hook and TJ Cunningham.

He continues to paint the urban landscape and the pastoral scenes whenever possible. His style is a compilation of the impressionist slant, with a bit of Edward Hopper thrown in for good measure. Ken Lives with his wife and best critic, Janice Lara in Burlington Vermont. He has 3 daughters and 7 grandchildren.
