Artists On Review

The Perfectionist: Elisabetta di Maria

Don't Cry Baby - Pastel Portrait on Pastelmat 50 x 70 cm

"I try to engage in a personal search for perfection, which I chase by faithfully reproducing every single detail of photos and images. Hyperrealism as a tool, therefore, for a meticulous and constant representation of reality, a challenge that allows me to put myself to the test."

Equine Photography: Tori Gagne

Isadore Cruce - Photography on dye sub aluminum 16 x 24 in.

"The horse is a highly sensitive intuitive creature. My experiences with wild and domestic horses have had a longterm grip on my photography practice. I spend a good deal of my time photographing wild horses in the western states in order to advocate to keep their lives free on our public lands."

Unique Perspective: Carolyn Schlam

MARINA - Oil on canvas 40 x 30 in.

"My portraiture is infused with emotional content, expressing the vulnerability of my female subjects, exploring its many aspects: Traditional, in which appearance and character are foremost; Expressionistic, in which the inner life is heightened, and Stylized, in which the image becomes iconic."

In A Painterly Mood: Tong Zhou

Pink Creed - Oil paint on wooden board linen 40 x 50 cm

"Just like a priest who has never seen god. I often tell my wife what I know about human things. I know the darkness of humanity, whether avarice or desire, happiness or sadness. I put them all into my production. I want to paint how I feel about the world. Use my consciousness to explain this world, although my consciousness may have some prejudice.”

Fiercely Graceful: Nicola Majocchi

JOSHUA BEAUTY - Photograph (Digital capture) 40 x 30 in.

"FIERCELY GRACEFUL is a body of work dedicated to all dancers to celebrate their power and their grace as the ultimate expression of the sheer strength of human physical performance at its best. The balance between Power and Grace as the interaction of two opposite worlds coming together."

Dreams do come true: Hsiung Yu

Computers in Human Behaviors - Acrylic on canvas 91 x 72.5 cm

“"Everything transcends natural processes. I am obsessed with the original frescoes from 45 million years ago. I am an art alchemist who insists on creating known and unknown symbols day and night. These totems project the imagination and innovative ideas of the future world. Using delicate and smooth lines, layers and mixing skills, injecting life and emotion between materials and linen, I believe dreams come true!”

The Scenographer: Carmela Rizzuti

Poppies Birth - Print on Fine Art Hahnemühle paper 70 x 100 cm

"For me, photography is a different way of painting where light is like a brush that allows me to create and shape my photos having total control of creation. My images are intended to be like dreams for the viewer, or a different way of seeing reality."

Color & Light: Jean-Pierre Alban

After Mattisse Series: Untitled Color Study 3

“I am inspired by color. In my work right now I am focusing on great masters and create compositions that deal with the concept of balance. I work with digital media and have a background in Painting.”

Contemporary Painting: Klara Sedlo

A Person Who Came From the Castle - Oil on canvas 60 x 50 cm

"I work with the viewer's subconsciousness; my paintings want to nudge your imagination, they are based on visions and dreams. Short sneak peeks into stories and characters allow viewers to run their own continuation of what is depicted on the painting."

Perfect Vision: Yuqian Sun

Gem in Their Eyes No.4 "White Opal" - Oil on paper 44 x 72 cm

"My art practice is derived from doll photography, which I started practicing when I was a kid. Inspired by the visual beauty of these mass-produced toy dolls in real life, my paintings discuss the cultural context of the meaning behind objects that are artificial imitations of human beings.”

See More

Dot by Dot: Jingfeng Li

Château de Selles No.4 - Ink pen on paper 54 x 54 cm

"The beauty of realistic pen-and-ink painting is that it uses just a black line to paint a rich and delicate picture. It presents a beauty of vicissitudes. I like the color of black, white and gray. Its deep, quiet yet noble quality profoundly attracts me."

See More

Retro-futurism: Scott Troxel

King (2021)

"I draw on the aesthetics of bygone technology and the forward-looking designs of the Atomic Age and mid-century modernism to make dynamic, retro-futurist wooden sculptures that evoke nostalgia for the past as much as they look to the future. I am fascinated by the way pieces of technology, culture, and design reveal their age and aim to make work that cannot be pinned to a specific era."

Who We Are: Nevena Ivanović Guagliumi

Can't remember - Combined technique on paper 24 x 30 cm

"My work is an analytical study on emotional intelligence and it's a constant work on the raising awareness on that, the most important sphere in the evolution of the personality, but the one so little has been researched about. Yet, it's in our genetic code."

The Perfectionist: Junru Xie

In Sunshine - Ink pen on paper 44 x 43 cm

"The beauty of realistic pen-and-ink painting is that it uses just a black line to paint a rich and delicate picture. It presents a beauty of vicissitudes. I like the color of black, white and gray. Its deep, quiet yet noble quality profoundly attracts me."

ADA & MEVA - Oil and acrylic on canvas 240 x 170 cm

Monoprints: Robin Wassong

Annabelle I - Monotype print Image 12 x 12 in., Paper 16 x 15 in.

"After receiving a BFA in 1982, from the Kansas City Art Institute, I moved to Seattle. There I created a large body of whimsical, geometric, abstract oil paintings on canvas.

I was represented by Lucia Douglas Gallery in Bellingham until 2000, when the gallery closed."

Topographies in Dance: Kornelia Boje

"For me, photographing dance is a way of giving artistic expression to my longing for movement. Whether longing, love, fear, despair, anger - everything that is expressed in the respective stage events, is how I feel. The photo speaks to me and I hope to the viewer too."

Intricacies: Massimiliano Pezzolini

Finestra in stile manuelino del convento di Tomar, in Portogallo - Watercolor on Pescia paper 35 x 50 cm

Digital Dream: Daman Gill-Tur

Finnish Stories: Anni Hurmila

Girls playing upon the shore
