Still Life with Sea Gull, 2012 Oil on canvas 65 x 75

Focus on Latvian painter, Tatyana Palchuk

Born in 1953 in Riga, Latvia, Tatyana Palchuk graduated at Jana Rozentala School of Art and the Latvian Academy of Arts. She did post-graduate workshops at USSR Academy of Arts and gained experience while training with master painters like Eduards Kalnins. In 2003 Tanya received her Master’s of Fine Arts degree in Painting in addition to the Master of Arts in Humanities. A talented realist, with attention to detail, her works reflect a unique sensibility for building with color and form. Tanya’s paintings are masterfully executed and strikingly well-balanced. Her still-lifes take us back to another era and in a classic way are open-ended narratives describing the life of each painstakingly rendered object. 


Nano Head, 2015 Digital Photograph Museum Archive Quality print on Hahnemühler Etching paper, Limited Edition of 3, 40 x 60 cm

Enigmatic Tree Acrylic on canvas 12 x 16 in.

Focus on American painter, Terry Golletz

... A look across his portfolio shows not only dedication and a unique style but the artist seems to have created a personal language, a vocabulary with which he makes up bizarre, abstract narratives that tell surreal open-ended stories. Each painting is recognizably Golletz, fluid, vibrant, bold and eccentric, yet each composition remains distinctive and special.
