It was about this time last year when I first featured Janet Lage’s artwork. Her Hose Me series is now on exhibit at Brown University until September 30th.
Ben Grasso’s paintings portray architectural structures, which resemble wooden houses from his home town, undergoing a deconstruction/reconstruction process. These homes are torn from their foundations and lifted high into the air where they are reborn into new, dramatic and beautiful forms.
As the year comes to an end, I, like many, tend to reflect on the last year. One thing I enjoy is looking back to see what posts readers of Today in Art like most. The best way I have of doing this today is by looking at the most visited posts.
Joe Sorren, an old favorite of mine, paints and sculpts dramatic characters and scenes. If you happen to be near the Los Angeles area, you may be able to catch Joe Sorren’s opening this weekend, Saturday, November 6.
I am a huge fan of Shaun Barber’s artwork and have featured him in the past, for a tattooed portrait painting and a portrait painting of President Barack Obama. I regularly glance back at his website to watch his collection of Tattooed Portraits grow.
Janet Lage’s paintings are full of energy, color, texture and line. These paintings are traditional in the sense of media used, but they have a gritty, graffiti art feel about them.
