When Karl Soderlund creates his "Splatter Art," he literally splashes paint onto the canvas — but there's more to it than just that. There's a high level of detail in his creations. Thanks to Soderlund's skill, the splatters take form into landscapes, seascapes and portraits that retain the fluid nature of the paint's now-frozen-velocity. There's an element of chance at play, but also a very focused final vision.
