ARTISTS Directory – ART SEARCH Art Direcrory Mon, 05 Oct 2020 17:55:03 +0000 en-US hourly 1 ARTISTS Directory – ART SEARCH 32 32 PIGSY (Ciaran McCoy) Sun, 04 Oct 2020 18:45:08 +0000 […]]]> “Many of my paintings are self portraits or semi-biographical, I paint about the things going on in my head at the time of painting. People have said to me that the paintings are angry but I don’t think they’re angry, I’m just expressing the frustrations of someone who lives with dyslexia. Words frustrate me and fascinate me at the same time. I sometimes don’t understand  the sounds of the letters, what they mean and why they don’t do what they are supposed to do. Because of this I like to draw quick and loose as opposed to when I’m designing a building and it needs to be more rigid and consistent. I’ve also taken from street artists who have to paint fast.  I think if you’re drawing fast there’s an honesty to it because there is no manipulation and overthinking, it’s just straight from your head onto the canvas. I love the no phoney approach to that”.

This spontaneous approach takes away all inhibitions. “I deliberately don’t correct words that have been misspelled and I sometimes break them apart to emphasize what can be going on in my head”. He also splashes and spills paint loosely over the canvas which keeps the honest approach “for a long time I covered up the writing completely, so as to not expose myself too much to the outside world but as I got older I’ve stopped doing that.  I’m happy where my art is, at the moment, and  I feel that it’s totally me. It’s a take it or  leave it approach, I have now.”

“Art is a way of expressing  myself and it’s a nice break from the normal day-to-day work  routine of an architect. The creative process between art and architecture are very different disciplines. With architecture I have specific briefs and goals that I aim to achieve. With art there are no boundaries, I just express what’s in my mind at the time that I am working, and in all honesty, I’m trying to get the thoughts out of my mind and on to the canvas.  I see it as a healthy process. Work and life can be stressful at times and I find going to my studio and throwing a large piece of canvas on the ground and painting helps me release all those stresses in a creative and positive way”.

Lyrical Abstraction | Workshop | T.Delaine Mon, 14 Sep 2020 19:51:21 +0000 […]]]> Waterfalls, seabed, ocean, day or night, mountains, springs, rivers and volcanoes… “Where are we?” asks the spectator at first glance surprised by these abstract landscapes evocative of nature and fantastic places. The reflex is innate, we invariably seek to associate known things, what we are used to seeing behind this profusion of colors and shapes as much mineral as organic. Is this a good idea?

And yet, after the first sensations of astonishment, Théophile Delaine’s canvases are very quickly tamed. They invite us on a pictorial journey full of twists and turns. Because each time our gaze ventures again into his universe, a new discovery is made. Borrowing from familiar shapes, they speak a universal language; that of the human being facing the world and its mysteries.

Shawn McNulty: Colorful Abstract Art For Sale Minneapolis Sun, 13 Sep 2020 18:02:59 +0000 […]]]> My work is dependent on design fundamentals: form, color, and composition. 
My style explores the relationship between man-made structures and the natural world; the idea of recognizable shapes and structures living within irrational thoughts and emotions. I begin a new piece very spontaneously and become more detailed as the composition starts to show itself. The first layer is the most erratic and freeform as I mash and scrape together a variety of acrylic colors and pumice with commercial grade joint knives. 
I invented a “shoe palette knife” which I use on early layers to challenge the way my body connects to the surface.  
I also work the canvas on the floor using a Swiffer tool.  A dialogue is created with the painting, and it starts to show me what needs to be done.
Thick layers of acrylic and pumice and are applied, scraped off, reapplied, sliced off, etc

Martin Webb Thu, 02 Jul 2020 14:28:13 +0000 […]]]> My work contemplates fundamental things such as our basic need to provide for ourselves; our desire for home, belonging, and connection; and our being a small temporary part of the natural world’s continuum. These thoughts take shape in images and objects that combine simple representations, layered abstractions, and plain-spoken materials.

Visions Fri, 05 Jun 2020 11:09:16 +0000 […]]]> PRESS RELEASE

Michel Saja’s exhibiting work eschews specific influences, while still demonstrating comfort with the techniques and styles of the great 19th century romantic painters. He uses his art as a means to show the passage of man through the natural world, and the unexpected beauty that arises as man and nature try to assert their own forms in the world over long periods of time.
Drawing inspiration from the centuries long transformation of the ancient Greek city, Aphrodisias, this latest collection examines the creative power of entropy, and the balancing order that humans impose.
His dedication and openness to art have taken him widely through the world, and left us with a fine body of work.
