Holly Coulis


Holly Coulis  Large Lemon, Stripes, Knives  2017  oil on linen  24.13" x 30.13"
cherryandmartin.com

Holly Coulis' new paintings at Cherry and Martin are exquisite in their execution. The artist has a way of handling oil paint that goes beyond craftsmanship and takes it to the sublime. The delicate line work and subtle modulation of color within the shapes she chooses takes the narrative to another space altogether. The work reminds me a bit of Trevor Winkfield's, but instead of symbols she chooses the every day items one would encounter in the kitchen, garden or other elements of domesticity. Like Morandi, she infuses the every day with a charm and almost mystical quality.

Christina Ramberg


Christina Ramberg (1946-1995 ) Untitled Torso With Pants  1982  acrylic on masonite  13" x 11.5"
corbettvsdempsey.com

Christina Ramberg's painting Untitled Torso With Pants is a great example of how a artist can say so much with so little. Her narrative on women in our culture during her shortened life is alive today as much or more so than when she painted it in 1982. Her ability to bring forth a dialectic that included gender, bias and femininity with her painting was admired by me then and is perhaps even more salient today.

David Lloyd


David Lloyd  Untitled  2016  acrylic on wood  23" x 22"
klowdenmann.com

David Lloyd is having a one person exhibition of new paintings at Klowden Mann in Culver City opening this Sat. Jan. 28. Any one in L A interested in painting from an artist that has been around a while should try and attend. He is an eloquent speaker and fine painter. Should his current exhibition be as interesting as his last ( and I'm sure it will be) this will be an excellent opportunity to see a seasoned painter in his prime.

Gary Stephan


                  Gary Stephan  Untitled  2016  acrylic on canvas  30" x 40"
                  hionasgallery.com
Gary Stephan is in a show at Hionas Gallery in NYC. Those of you on the east coast should avail yourselves if you are in the area. I have been a fan of his work since the 80's an each year he seems to get even better than the year before. He is a masterful paint handler, colorist and conjurer of unique perspectives in painting.

Heidi Pollard

      Heidi Pollard  Burgeon  2016  oil and spray paint on canvas  60" x 60"
      heidipollard.com
Heidi Pollard is a painter from New Mexico that I have posted here before. Her work       resonates with me on many levels. Her paint handling is skillful without excessive bravado. Her subject matter is personal but at the same time universal in nature. Her allusions to real and imagined worlds unfold into evocative compositions that are simple yet complex enough   to hold ones attention. In short, she is my kind of painter and well deserving of her recent grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation.
