Thomas creates scenes that are both exciting and fresh, as they often capture the first impression of what the artist has seen. It's easy to see when viewing a Karl Thomas painting that he has been magnetized by his subject. His paintings have a special quality that portray the crispness of the air and the movement of the sun in a landscape.
Widely acclaimed for his plein air compositions of the Grand Canyon of Arizona, The Grand Tetons of Wyoming and Wasatch Mountains near his home, Karl Thomas acknowledges the influences of Inness, Sargent, Bierstadt and Moran on what he describes as his own style of “realistic impressionism.”
Thomas currently resides in Provo, Utah. He studied fine art at the University of Utah, Brigham Young University (under the direction of William Whitaker), and at the L.A. Art Center. After teaching for eight years at the Waterford School, Karl started painting full-time in 1988. As a well recognized artist represented by galleries throughout the Western United States and in New York City, Karl has been included in the Collectors Sale in Dallas, the American Art Classic, and the Texas Renaissance Sale in Houston. He was featured in the January/February 1990 issue of Art of the West and was selected in the top 100 artists in the Arts for the Parks Exhibition in 1995. Locally, Karl has been invited to participate in the annual Zion’s Bank Art Show since it’s inception. He also attends the Sears Dixie Invitational, winning Best of Show, Purchase Awards and several First Place and Honorable Mentions over the years.
