Javiera da Fonseca

 

There’s snow on the ground at my house, and these bright acrylic paintings by Chilean artist Javiera da Fonseca have me craving a tropical vacation! The vibrant background gradients have me dreaming of ocean sunsets and cocktails under looming palm trees.

Marija Verde

 

Flora, fauna, and striking a pose – somehow artist Marija Verde makes it all seem perfectly natural. I’m really drawn to her loose, flowing style and the way she embraces the white space in each piece.

Dan Gluibizzi

 

Portland-based artist Dan Gluibizzi relies on his own astute observations and ability to construct a visual collection to create his multifaceted grouped compositions. The way people hold a beer bottle, different aspects of sexuality, and how we curate our online personas are just a few behaviors Gluibizzi portrays in his paintings.

Siobhan McBride

 

Because of the sharp lines and side-by-side high contrast artist Siobhan McBride uses, many of her pieces look like collages at first glance. But look for a little while longer and you’ll start to notice subtle shading and other intricacies that can only be achieved by the skilled brush of a painter.

Andie Dinkin

 

Andie Dinkin‘s paintings and illustrations sit firmly on the line between traditional and modern in her very own distinctive style. The faces with shallow features and little detail, the garments that are difficult to assign a time period to, the color palettes that make you study each piece rather than simply view it. My favorites are the crowded scenes, a sort of Where’s Waldo on a considerably elevated scale.

Ian Palmer

 

After years working as a graphic designer, Ian Palmer turned his attention towards being an artist. Precipitated by his family moving from England to a 200 year old barn in southwest France, Palmer found himself surrounded by beautiful mountain and countryside views full of inspiration. I really like his ability to layer colors and when he uses a heavy hand with trowels and drips.

Alessandra Genualdo

 

I’m having a moment with the work of Italian-born, London-based painter and illustrator Alessandra Genualdo. Each piece feels so very melancholy and introspective, even when filled with bright saturated colors. As you’ve probably noticed by now the time of year drastically affects the kind of art I’m drawn to, and Alessandra’s work feels perfectly suited to how I spend Januarys.

Mark Thompson

 

Mark Thompson‘s grayscale paintings feel exactly like January. It’s been frigid and full of snow in many parts of the U.S., making everything feel washed-out and salt covered. Thompson says of his paintings that they are works of memory, not of any one time or place but a world distilled.
