I have been following Lucy Mink on the net for some time. This particular painting is recent and a bit of a breakthrough for her in my opinion. I love the edges of this piece along with the composition and paint handling.
Jules de Balincourt's paintings take narrative to a new dimension where a non-linear form of free association and free flow of consciousness reigns supreme. His work is not anarchic but rather builds on tradition while following his own unique path to artistic enlightenment.
Treiman came from the midwest to Southern California in the 40's after studying at Iowa University and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She taught for years at UCLA. Her love of the old masters and Eakins is always evident in her figure landscapes that are infused with surrealist undertones. It seems that you just can't take the Chicago influence out of an artist once they have succumbed to it's siren song.
Can't wait to see the show at Kordansky of Lesley Vance new paintings. Small gems of nuanced color and form combining into eloquent tropes on elegant abstraction. One of the best painters on the west coast for sure.
Joan Mellon is a painter and printmaker from New York. Each practice influences the next as she explores color, pattern, translucency, opacity and form in her work. She is in a group exhibition titled "Meta Vista" that is closing this weekend in Brooklyn at the 16 Wilson space (formally Storefront gallery). Should you be in the area it should not be missed. The exhibition can be viewed online at curatingcontemporary.com as well.www.curatingcontemporary.com
Steve Gibson 1971 Skunky Do and Skunky Lou 16" x 20" serigraph on paper
Pulling prints in a car port studio in La Jolla. Had to work only in the morning when the wind did not blow. It is amazing what conditions someone will work in to accomplish the task at hand. A belated apology to my ex-neighbors for the loud and angry bellows from my side of the fence from time to time.
