It was fun to watch dedicated followers pick through the selections and happily walk away with their choices.
I try not to imitate anything but aim for the paintings to exist naturally by letting the process lead. Whilst becoming immersed in the act of picture making and switching off the controlling mind a subconscious force takes over. Images emerge that resemble weather worn surfaces, stormy imaginary terrains and objects suspended in ambiguous atmospheres. For me it is all about the incidents and painterly discoveries I make along the way. An excavation reveals the initial bones of the painting to the final brushstroke that is synchronised with the head and the heart when it all falls into place. – Justin Weeks Image from www.fairfaxgallery.com
DAVID ADAMS – Using house paint abandoned at construction sites, Adams spins paint from punctured cans hung from specially constructed tripods above found tarps and other reclaimed materials. Gallery125.org
Ian Busher – I chasing you home “I seek to examine and showcase the beauty in destruction and neglect; leading viewers to be drawn into what they may have previously walked right past. Faces, landscapes and countless other objects and scenes can be interpreted in the cracks, stains and paints that make up the image.” www.studiobusher.com Represented by Louise Lipman at www.LipmanArt.com
Claude Roegiers – Traveling Still series uses past and present images, mainly from Asia, to reveal a distant world, a place on the other side of “warp and weft”. Most of the scenes are of everyday life: people walking, working, talking…, but the use of white oil paint creates a sense of quiet nostalgia or poetry. www.boulderton-art.com
Inspired by nature and in particular woods, I let my mind wander. A wood is the keeper of secrets where affairs have been started, relationships ended and the gossip rife. Yet, about you there is beauty, serenity and quiet. A facade. I love this paradox. When I walk through a wood my mind is opened and there is focus, intimacy and I really think. It is my place for healing and my place for ideas. Through my paintings I interpret images seen and moments felt recalling conversations, situations and feelings experienced on a walk. I play with mood and emotion, striving for a balance. I love to feel the paint and canvas with my hands – scratching and making marks, giving texture and life to a painting. I paint my walks on canvas and each piece of work is a difference experience. – Beverly Rouwen. www.fairfaxgallery.com
Observing art is the most rewarding experience. Photographers, trend reporters, colorist, and web designers learn from it, art consultants recommend it, collectors purchase it and all mankind enjoy it. I as a future photographer learned composition, as a colorist realized different color combinations, as a reporter learned the trends, and as an art lover enjoyed it.
