Lars Stenberg grew up in a coastal region of Scotland that was part rural idyll and part coal mining and heavy industry. As a result of living with these contrasts, his work is concerned with the environments we live in: how we shape them and how they shape us. Known for his colourful landscape painting and for his inspiring workshops, he also works with digital media, audio and assemblage; is co-author of two books on environmental accessibility; and has undertaken several large-scale public art projects in the UK and Australia. He lives in Australia.
He mostly lives on Instagram and only occasionally visits here to brush the dust off the pages so, if you’re keen for a more regular dose of art-related jibber-jabber that’s the link to follow.
Those who prefer a more softly softly approach should sign up to his email list. You might get two or three emails a year if you’re lucky, and you’ll also get advanced notice of exhibitions and new collections.
Open Studio 2023
Come visit my studio on April Fool’s Day weekend. How auspicious is that? There’ll be paintings old and new, big and small, and a measure of conviviality. Pop in for a chat. I’ll put up more information, such as times and address, nearer the day but for now, stick the date in your diary. Oh, and I will tidy up before then.
A Walk Across England
Join me on a stroll from the North Sea to the Irish Sea. I recount the adventure (or lack of adventure, but told in an amusing way) every day until the middle of January. Check out the blog. Also, some paintings I made are available on the Gallery page.
Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners
I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which I live and work. I pay my respects to their Elders, past and present.
