A Word About the Artist
Clyde Semler is a contemporary artist living and working in Los Angeles. His paintings are about looking and recording sensations of light and color to create form, space, and design on canvas and paper. Observation and the painting process itself work together. Each brush stroke determines the next in a developmental layering process. Imagination and invention play important parts as well in forging his images: still life, figure, or portrait.
Clyde Semler has a B.A. and M.F.A. in Fine Arts from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). As a Fine Arts teacher, he has taught widely throughout the Southern California area. His teaching posts have included UCLA, Otis College of Art and Design, and Chaffey College.
