Bridget Fahy paints ambiguous figures in scenes filled with texture and patterns like a quilted blanket.
Ann Marshall’s work combines realistic painting with patterned and textured collage elements. I especially enjoy the direction of her newer portraits, where the collage elements have lots of texture and color.
Many thanks to Art Asylum Boston for introducing me to Kevin Peterson. Peterson’s paint reveals a sharp contrast between the innocent world of a child and the reality of the world in which they live.
In his latest work, Matthew Hindley explores themes of darkness with his rich oils and acrylics. These paintings capture figures in a moment of strong emotion leaving the audience wondering what might happen next.
These intense paintings are by artist Francoise Nielly. Nielly paints mostly with oils on canvas using various palette knife techniques.
There is nothing new about artists taking inspiration from other created works, but there is something here worth discussing. People tend to connect with landscape or cityscape paintings of places they have seen before and that is part of the beauty in them. A painting of the Streets of Charleston is going to connect with me in a way that it cannot connect with someone who has never been there.
