Lucy Augé

 

Lucy Augé‘s paintings focus on one of my favorite subjects – botanicals! Her work feels fast and interpretive, entirely in the moment.

I want to capture the mood of the season, through documenting and repeating the image that nature is showing us at the time. Repeatedly painting one plant over and over, you reavaluate what you just saw. By creating these into large scale pieces you are left with a large painting but seen through the details and shapes plants form together, when grown in their natural habitat. The materials I use to create the work are picked out each season, colours reflecting the mood. It creates a timeline of what was felt at the time and what was being shown by nature.

Justyna Kisielewicz

 

Summer immediately takes me back to my teenage years – is it like that for everyone? Polish-born, California dwelling artist Justyna Kisielewicz has the knack for capturing that feeling in vibrant oil paintings. Bold color combinations, pop culture references, and Kisielewicz’s unique style lend a sexy vibe to what’s otherwise completely innocent subject matter.

4th of July

Anne Kullaf

Even though today feels like throwing a housewarming party while the place is on fire, I’m celebrating what my America stands for and I hope you are as well. For me that means equality for all, affordable healthcare for the masses, keeping our borders open to everyone, and so much more. I’ll keep fighting for that America tooth and nail.

Samantha Fields

 

Samantha Fields‘ art is really something to behold, she uses layers and layers of fine airbrushing to create each ethereal am-I-in-a-dream piece. Each of her subjects – wildfires, fireworks, fog, and more – all lend themselves beautifully to her unique style of creating.

Kirsten Lilford

 

Cape Town-based Kirsten Lilford takes everyday photos of family outings, domestic scenes, and suburban landscapes and transforms them into paintings with uncanny and slightly sinister tones. Her work is definitely reminiscent of early 19th century realists, but with a unique style of her own.

Rebecca Chitticks

 

These are some seriously flattering portraits! Rebecca Chitticks has a gift for painting away the imperfections that no one needs to see, while keeping the things that might be considered charming, like freckles. Each subject feels intimately familiar all while inviting the viewer to delve deeper.

Alejandra Atarés

 

Barcelona-based artist Alejandra Atarés paints gardens and portraits full of color and life. I like to imagine just what these women’s expressions are as they gaze at the brilliant landscapes of her creation.

Eliza Douglas

 

When you’re intimately close to a subject why not make it a recurring theme? Eliza Douglas creates large-scale paintings depicting her own hands, sometimes her feet as well. They’re always realistic, but from wrist and ankle on all bets are off. Bends and curves that have no place in the human body show up often in extremities of absurd lengths. Human bodies are mysterious and magical and capable of extraordinary things, and I love Douglas’s exploration of their outermost regions.

Uta Barth

 

Uta Barth has a wide breadth of work that is ever-evolving with influences of painting, sculpture, photography, and installation. Engagement and perception play big roles in her work, exploring the way the human eye might view something versus the camera, and Barth’s latest two projects – In the Light and Shadow of Morandi and Untitled 2017 – press her forward on that journey. In the first she pays homage to Morandi’s love of repetition, light, and form, while in the second Barth’s focus is on attention to detail in photography.
