The Andersons, who recently moved to Portland’s South Waterfront neighborhood, have added two paintings to their collection. Spanning more than four decades, their collection includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, carvings, and prints from geographically diverse sources. After recently moving to Portland’s South Waterfront, the Anderson’s began a search for local talent to enrich their collection.
In 2009, they attended a benefit auction, showcasing Portland’s resident painter, Sam Roloff. Since that time, they have studied the artist closely and Sharon Anderson has become particularly charmed by Roloff’s landscape series. These paintings capture and display the essence of earth and sky, bringing the two elements together to form a visually stunning horizon. The color schematics are totally original, as Roloff spends a great deal of time custom mixing his pigments and hues, using a variety of materials. The results are very special.
The Anderson’s are also big fans of Roloff’s recent series of female portraits, which offer dramatic perspectives of emotion and enigma. Collectors should brace themselves for the difficult choices that lay ahead, as Roloff rolls out his collection of heartbreaking female characters. Very intense.
