Bascha Mon

Bascha Mon  Teapot Lost Boat With Heavy Pink Sky  2014  oil on paper  22,5" x 30"

Bascha Mon is an artist that fuses abstraction and narration in a wonderful straight forward manner. Her work imbues the spontaneity and thoughtfulness of a artist who is fully engaged with her process and committed to her view of the world. The afore mentioned attributes combined with empathy for humanity make her efforts resonate with me.

Zak Prekop

                         Zak Prekop   Untitled  2016  oil on canvas  35" x 27"  

I like Zak Prekops painting because it is so apparently simple yet complex. He paints behind the canvas and on top of it. He leaves raw canvas and stained areas that set up a complex set of visuals that intrigue me. He is also the son of an old friend of mine from Chicago days in the 70's. A creative family of 3 sons and a father that continue to push boundaries in their chosen fields.

Joan Brown

Joan Brown  The Colonel in the Garden of Allah  1972  enamel on masonite  90" x 48"

The queen of Bay Area Figuration. Second generation and so much stronger than Park or Bischoff. Should you ever have a chance to see her painting or sculpture, don't miss it.
