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.
First Look at Today in Art Flickr Group
I recently setup a new Today in Art Flickr group and have been overwhelmed with the quality and variety of the participation. The purpose of this group is to find new artists on Flickr to feature on todayinart.com. So, I wanted to create this post to thank those who are participating already and encourage new folks to join.
Luminous Paintings by Randall Stoltzfus
Drawing influence from American masters like Albert Pinkham Ryder, Randall Stoltzfus painstakingly paints works which focus on light and an optical effect that he calls a good accident.
Digitally Influenced Oil Paintings by Jens Hesse
As strange as it may sound, Jens Hesse mixes the traditional world of oil painting with digital noise, or distortions.
Mixed Media Artwork by Wil Murrary
Wil Murray’s mixed media artwork blurs the lines between disciplines as well as genres. These pieces have an identify complex that I love.
Paintings by Julie Evans
Julie Evans has some fantastic paintings that merge tightly controlled painting techniques with more chaotic methods. Living between these disciplines, her paintings are complex compostions of lively color, texture and pattern.
Playfully Scary Art by Jeremy Fish
The artwork of Jeremy Fish is playfully scary and just plain fun to look at. Most of his art is rich with graphic detail with a minimal color palette. When viewing his work online you will immediately get his angle by the URL of his website, sillypinkbunnies.com.
Featured Paintings by Erik Otto
Erik Otto does some amazing paintings that are linear, fluid and ripe with texture. Oh yeah, he does some nice sculpture too.
Violent Grisaille Paintings of Guillaume Bresson
Guillaume Bresson realistically paints contemporary subject using classical painting techniques. Painting in technique of grisaille, Bresson portrays modern scenes of urban street violence.
