“In my paintings, the subjects are iconic in who they are or what they represent. However, the real story is what is revealed within the painting. I use representational symbols to create scenes within paintings to tell the story of the subject. Like a puzzle, the closer you look, the more symbols you will find.”

KARL SODERLUND’S WORKS ARE ON DISPLAY AT THE
HORIZON FINE ART GALLERY IN JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING.
Karl Soderlund is a professional artist and is well known for his unique “Iconic Symbols” series, portraits, seascapes, and landscapes.
Karl’s use of iconic symbols, forged from his study of symbolism at Yale University, was a turning point in his artistic expression. Combined with his ability to understand the utilization of color, which was forged by his experience as a young boy working at his father’s color separation printing company, he developed the foundation to create his very unique, exquisitely complex and ultra-realistic paintings. Thus, a new Soderlund style was born.
Karl Soderlund’s paintings have been shown in the finest galleries, as well as featured on television, in magazines and newspapers and can be found hanging in over 300 public and private collections, including Interpublic Companies, Merrill Lynch, PepsiCo and the Heisman Trophy portrait collection. In 2002 Karl led the introduction of the Heisman Trophy Awards on national television by painting that year’s winner. In 2010, Karl had his first Solo exhibit at the National Arts Club in NYC featuring his series “Iconic Symbols.” Karl also teaches at his Studio in Fairfield.
