Original oil on canvas hand signed by the artist "Clarinet Player". Jorn Fox, is an artist who captures the soul of his images. He opens our eyes and hearts to a vibrant life with each painting. Life to music, the sea, the passion of a dancer and the soul of a musician. Everyone can view his paintings from a different space in their minds eye and will see within the artwork, an image unique in touching their soul of memories." -Kamala Barbara Smith. "When I was thinking of a title for this book of paintings, I thought, what is the feeling I have had inside, when each stroke of paint was applied to all the paintings and pastel's I have done over the years. The feeling is that my soul has attempted to express all the wonder and beauty that I have seen and felt since I have been alive. The magic of life, of all the color and amazing experiences life has to offer. Painting from the soul is where it all comes from, the connection of the soul, to the world of form, expressed in painting." -Jorn. Jorn Fox, was born in Southern California, was exposed to art at an early age by his father. He began his formal art studies in high school and successfully at California State University, Fullerton. Through the many hours spent plane air painting on location and in his studio, painting the live model, still life's, from drawing studies and photographs, he found he was afforded the opportunity of limitless expression, exploration and discovery in the maturation of his art. For 40 years, Jorn has drawn inspiration from the varied terrain of the Southern California coast and its people. Indeed, though he has a signature characteristic elegance of style, each of his paintings are distinct from one another, as are the various stunning locales, peoples and moments that inspire them. Working with palette knife and brush, Jorn is able to evoke serenity and stillness, movement and emotion in his works. This can be witnessed in his forever expanding collection inclusive of Coastal, Jazz, Landscape, Harbor, Abstract, Figurative and Nautical Series.
