CALEB THIESSEN

Caleb Thiessen is an artist working in a variety of mediums, although for his major works he is focused on continuing to hone his skills with oil, simply as a result of discovering over the years just how many lessons there are to learn with such a vibrant medium, and appreciating the sense of accomplishment felt when a necessary technique finally becomes second nature.

 

Caleb grew up in rural Manitoba, his love of drawing was nurtured by his parents who sent him to public drawing classes in Brandon M.B where he started to really open up his imagination and get a grasp on where his strengths lay in regards to his personal style and composition. After a few years of classes, he received private tutoring from Curt Shoultz, a comic book inker and illustrator capable of very dynamic and structured work. Many things were learned during these lessons, but Mr Shoultz saw in much of Caleb’s work one characteristic that has continued to be the foundation and direction that leads Caleb’s art: an eye-catching shape as the base of a piece, with everything complementing and reacting to this.

 

Caleb’s recent output has shown an increased movement toward abstraction, with his awareness being drawn more to careful compositional elements, with colour and shape being of utmost value to him. His ongoing series “Infinitely Contained” was born from this new desire within Caleb, to focus less on the subject matter and redirect his attention to matters of how the eye can play around the finished work when elements are placed on the canvas in a meaningful way.

 

Caleb creates art in an attempt to draw the viewer into his own headspace, occupy it for a time and discover for themselves that the feelings and aesthetics that inspired Caleb to create, shine through in the work. This perhaps can be a way for the viewer to share a kinship with the artist.
