Becky Yazdan

Becky Yazdan 2015  Shadows In The Asylum   oil on linen on panel  12" x 12" 
beckyyazdan.com
When I look at Becky Yazdan's painting they take me to a place at once familiar and also disconcerting and strange. I enjoy her straight forward approach painting. She is not overly facile or glib and nothing seems formulaic as she coaxes her abstract world into existence. The work feels hard fought for and rigorous in it's execution. One is enticed to contemplate each element of the visual encounter.

Erik Neff


Erik Neff  Between  2015  oil on canvas on board  36" x 40"
erikneffpainting.com

I have been following Erik Neff's work for a while now. This is the second post of his work I have posted. His layering of paint with translucent and opaque pigments lend an atmospheric quality to well constructed paintings. He leaves just enough unsaid as he alludes to architecture, landscape and pure abstraction.

                    Ross Gash  Mapping The Temple  2014  oil on linen 39.37" x 27.55"
                    rossgash.com

                      I came across Ross Gash's work and was immediately entranced with
                    his mastery of color and drawing ability. I like the way he turns landscape
                    on it's head, taking abstraction to an unfamiliar but exciting place.

Brian Edmonds

Brian Edmonds  Slinging Bones  2015  9" x 12"  acrylic on handmade paper

Edmonds is a painter from Alabama. He also authors a blog and administers Curating Contemporary an on line gallery for artists to curate exhibitions. His energy must be boundless since he also has time to paint incredible works like the one posted today.

His enthusiasm is infectious as it has enabled so many other artists to connect with each other with his curatorial efforts and open heart.

The seed from which so much current painting has developed. Love the color, texture, pattern and more than that the reason why they are what they are.

Chuck Webster


Chuck Webster  Untitled  2012  oil on panel  14" x 18"

I like the way Webster paints. His work appears to be ham handed at first glance but his compositions and color combinations reveal an elegance and authenticity that engage and inform the viewer at a gut level. These abstract tropes have a feeling of contemplation and urgency at the same time.
