Artistic illustrations, where the two words that came to mind when I first viewed the work of Patryk Hardziej. I love the geometric quality of these characters. The angular lines both give details and tell a magnificent stories. For myself and art, either its an instant attraction or there isn’t, an all or nothing in a way. Patryk’s style instantly struck a cord with me. The people in these illustrations have amazing body posture, how many different stories could one piece tell? I honestly love this style but you probably already know that if you are still reading this.
Yesterday’s post about Galeria Miguel Alzueta was about just some of the amazing pieces the gallery carries and some of the spaces they have curated. Today is simply an encore of their work but more in the form of expositions. I think this discipline would be one of the most rewarding “jobs”. To curate a display, gallery or museum would be a fantastic task and Galeria Miguel Alzueta does a superb job. They organize these pieces in a way that a viewer may experience them as both art and furniture. I have always loved the more minimal approach to spaces like these.
I am quite fond of Tom Climent’s abstract art. The viewer gets some sense of structure through small semi blurred planes of color. The rest of the canvas gets the treatment of a colored haze or fog, letting your mind draw and fill in the missing pieces. Any of these pieces would look phenomenal in a modern setting.
“Irish painter Tom Climent produces paintings of figurative, urban and landscape subjects, sometimes referencing the history of painting in his works. His most recent work tends to focus on the creation of a structured space, while investigating the boundaries between abstraction and representation.”
Artistic brass, are the words I would use to describe the work of Pietro Russo. There is definitely a common thread in these stunning pieces, that being the use of brass. I love the geometric precision of these objects. Lighting, furniture and interiors are just some of the pictures you are viewing here. Most of his work is in limited editions and I am sure they are produced with the utmost quality and attention to detail. The details in these interiors and furniture pieces are stunning and that is what makes a piece unique. Walnut and brass, ya, they play very well together.
These wonderful abstract paintings by Diana Roig are abstract but definitely have an organic movement to them. The colors and shapes have a flowing movement that could entertain the eyes and the mind for quite some time. I love the groupings of color and how they act together to tell a story. In some respects they remind me of a reef aquarium, you could sit and look at it for hours. Could you imagine one of these in your home, yep I could. Very cool video after the “READ MORE”.
Artist Rick Stevens has a wonderful mind to produce these amazing modern landscapes. It was interesting to look through his earlier work and see the evolution that has taken place. His current pieces take your mind on a recall to some realm, land, sea, or air. I like how there isn’t distinctness and the objects or masses of color let your imagination create the story. Make sure to check out his website as there are plenty of amazing works to look through.
A sense of structure is important to me, but I avoid strong divisions. I require a certain ‘fluidity’ where everything is flowing into the next thing. My compositions are infused with an overall light that is all-inclusive. This doesn’t allow anything to be read as separate from the whole. There is diversity, just like in the natural world, but there is an underlying unity that is apparent. I sometimes use preliminary sketches as beginning compositions for paintings and pastels. Much of my process is improvised, allowing the work to evolve organically.
