Artists On Review

The Realist: Clint Eagar

Chanel Perfume Bottle Art - Acrylic on canvas

"I was formerly trained in South Africa, through art technical school, and also in art college in Dallas, TX. I have been published internationally in the 80's, and my art reflects a very wide range of subject matter; from abstract works to super realistic, and representational pieces.”

East Meets West: Kexin Di

Waiting for the Wind - Oil on canvas 120 x 80 cm

“In my oil painting technique, I am inspired by Rembrandt’s works to catch the color of light. With the classical skill of cover to dye, painting can be powerful by layering oil colors decorously. Meanwhile, I often use color directly, like modern painters, combining them together."

The Skill To Experiment: BaerenzCao

Firebeetle Has A Dream, 2016 - Oil on canvas 100 x 100 cm

German Artist, BaerenzCao has been educated as a Color Retoucher in the graphic industries. In 1963 he was one of the 4 co-founders of the art group “Patio”, later known as Patio Gallery and Edition, an institution based first in Neu Isenburg and after 1965 in Frankfurt am Main, until 1996. BaerenzCao worked from 1968 to 1972 as an Archaelogic draftsman in team with Egyptologist Prof. Jan Assmann for publication of the German excavations in Luxor, Egypt.

Dream and Memory: Anita Kovacevic

Land of Snow - Photograph 102 x 68.5 cm

“My whole concept and approach to art is simple just as my philosophy of mind is. I'm inspired by the simplest and quieter side of life and enjoy peaceful natural escapes. My images reflect my inner vision and my floating between memories and dreams."

Between Metaphors: Pirkko Mäkelä-Haapalinna

Own Space, 2016 - Pastel 66 x 83 cm

"I search for the tangible surface between the inner and the observable world by introspection during the painting process. I get ignited when something gets a metaphorical meaning. I bridge the soul and reason within the concept of time. Through imagery, I consider the complexities of these dualities."

Unique Technique: Adele Venter

Three Ladies - Photographic print 22 x 13 in. $850

“In making the works of art, I create patterns which are printed, and then I incorporate three-dimensional elements into these settings. These images are then photographed using specific light sources in order to accentuate the layering of dimensions.”

Formalism: Karina Plachetka

Fiesta,2003 - Oil on canvas 60 x 80 cm

< “Nature is the most beautiful inspiration in my work. The majority of my collection consists of sketches or finished paintings of impressions from my travels through the South of Europe, where I can always find a new spirit of creativity, especially in landscapes or cityscapes.”

PrintMaking: Leena Golnik

Eating Alone - PVC engraving, chine collè 17 x 20 cm

"I get the topics for my works from the surrounding world, dreams, and nature. Then I add there my own imagination. I love especially animals and that can also be seen in my works."

Strangely Familiar: Naima White

Hannah by the Window #7 - Photograph 22 x 16 in.

"There are many ways to articulate pattern, and my interest in them stems from the innate humane need to find them in almost everything that we look at. When we look at pictures of Mars or the Moon many times we will see a face, as if to identify something familiar in the strange and unfamiliar."

Storytelling in Porcelain: Eva Cocco

N.027 - Aegean white porcelain 13 x 10 in.

"I am a self-taught sculptor and by far my favorite narrative tool is porcelain. Besides other things, I am a sci-fi geek and through my pieces, I talk about meandering cities and tortuous architectures, about heritage and ancestral stories, entropy and chaos, life and death in this and other planets."

Simple Beauty: Neela

All Things Bright & Beautiful - Watercolor on paper 41 x 31 cm $950

“Painting is an integral part of my life. It is an expression of my joy in everything I see.”/i>

New Vocabulary: Dave Weindorf

Timeline to Wealth, 2017 - Acrylic enamel, stain and watercolor on canvas 30 x 20 in.

“I read a lot about historical figures, primitive cultures, and ancient symbols. That definitely influences my art. I feel like I'm bringing the past to today in my expressionistic paintings with bold compositions of line work, watercolor, and abstract glyphs.”

 

An Aesthetic Point of View: Andrey Epishin

Ancient Dance, 2017 Ink on color paper 30 x 30 cm

"Experiencing the world from an aesthetic point of view is fundamental to my art. Finding inspiration in everyday life, I regularly seek to interpret through my paintings the emotions and characters of the beings that surround me."

New Structures: Krasi Dimtch

Be Unseen Est Une Pensée Anglais - Digital print on Plexiglas 30 x 30 in. 600€

"My artistic practice focuses on the development of atypical means for representing the symbols of Language and the creation of visual, textual, and sound art that encode linguistic contents and explore the structures of Language viewed as a repository of ideas."

Post Modern Baroque: Svetlana Melik-Nubarova

Motherhood - Photograph 6321 x 6528px, $900

"I was very interested in painting from an early age. Therefore, the painting of such great masters as Leonardo da Vinci, Verrocchio, Brueghel, Bosch, Raphael, Rembrandt, had a huge impact on my style of photography.

Collage: Henny Schlüter

Painting with paper on canvas is the result of my ongoing contemplation on progress and sustainability leading me to the unique use of colored paper as my artistic medium. I want to achieve a new visual language leading people off the beaten tracks towards new experiences."

Oil on canvas: Evgenya Severskaya

Nymphs (detail) - Oil on canvas

"I want to express my delight for being and the feeling when you realize that you are, you live. So you can act and manage the part of the world that is adjacent to you, you can increase the beauty of the world, participate in its construction."

Dialogues: Sylvia Galos

Untitled, 2016 - Mixed media 30 x 30 cm

"I begin with an idea, and then it becomes something else." - Pablo Picasso

"Spontaneity switches with the painstaking search after the perfect stroke and color. From mind to guts and back. The process of painting - it is a dialogue between myself and the painting. Sometimes I receive direct answers to my questions while painting, sometimes the painting invites me to find answers myself."

Canvas Alive: Danguole Serstinskaja

Tortoiseshell Cat - Pastel on velour 25 x 35 cm

"Photorealism perfectly represents my understanding of art, in that it must display the mastery of the artist."

Metaphorical Narratives: Gaetanne Lavoie

The Definition of Insanity - Oil on canvas 30 x 40 in.

Within the experience of each emotional state lies the potential for release and within that release lives freedom. I create psychologically spiritual narratives that are meant to produce a visceral, emotional reaction in the viewer. I intend to yield a lasting impact that induces free thought and dialogue.

The Natural Order of Things: Gary Wagner

Soft and Soothing - Photograph 15 x 21.75 in

"With my work, I have tried not only to pay respect to the natural order and beauty of the earth but also to show others this beauty through my vision and art."

Bare Minimums: Bernd Steinert

Urforme Kanu - Mixed media 47 x 60 cm

“I’m a dreamer and love real things. That's why I reduce mercilessly.”
