Sunstein celebrates the gift of creativity with this season’s featured artist, John Guthrie.
Color is fundamental to a lot of my work and my whole concept and process. My whole career…I always wanted to do color that was…astonishing.
John Guthrie knows what he wants. His meticulous attention to detail is the result of a well-ordered plan. The measure of an angle. The shade of his blue.
Guthrie attended the University of Cincinnati where he studied Aerospace Engineering. He then changed gears and enrolled in Massachusetts College of Art to study painting. His dynamic work embodies both aspects of his consciousness: the precise and the lyrical.
Works by John Guthrie have been shown in many solo exhibitions, including Stonehill College, Easton, MA; Boston University Art Gallery Annex, Boston; Transit Gallery, Harvard University Medical School, Cambridge; and galleries throughout the northeast and Canada. Writings about his work have appeared in The Boston Globe, Design New England, Art New England and other publications.
