Daniel Esquivia-Zapata

Daniel Esquivia-Zapata

Each drawing and painting shows my mistakes, failures, struggles and above all my successes; each is a reflection, a reflection that I can change, one which I am creating, and for this reason the strokes, lines and values show who I am, what I could be and how much I could achieve. Creating something then...  More »

Rick Garland

Rick Garland

I am a realist painter with a much stronger interest in the atmosphere and light in my subject than the detailed recreation and static representation that realism and hyper realism often gives us. I start with an idea or object's appeal and my illustration background and love of narrative help develop that into my direction...  More »

Donato Giancola

Donato Giancola

From the epics of Peter Paul Rubens to the sublime graphics of Mondrian, Donato Giancola's oil paintings mine classical draftsmanship, narration, and aesthetics of composition to lay a foundation rich in historical associations.  Italian figuration, Baroque lighting and Flemish perspectives merge with the power of modern color field theory and post-modern narrative concepts to create...  More »

Haley Hasler

Haley Hasler

The self-portrait confronts the viewer with an outward representation of the inner self. Here is the exterior as seen by the interior. The self-portrait as a character introduces a further element. While the self-portrait implies that the artist is showing us the truth, a representation of the exterior in disguise conveys the impossibility and...  More »

Pam Hawkes

Pam Hawkes

The characters in my paintings don’t readily give away their stories, their histories of desire, love and games and we are not sure if they are trapped within this world of their own mysterious myth-making or are active participants. But what we are sure of is the seduction of a world where knowingly idealised characters,...  More »

Andrea Kowch

Andrea Kowch

The stories and inspiration behind my paintings stem from life’s emotions and experiences, resulting in narrative, allegorical imagery that illustrates the parallels between human experience and the mysteries of the natural world. The lonely, desolate American landscape encompassing the paintings’ subjects serves as an exploration of nature’s sacredness and a reflection of the human soul,...  More »

Yana Movchan

Yana Movchan

Yanina (Yana) Movchan was born in Kiev in 1971. Yana’s sublime mastery of the technique and structure of Renaissance painting combines with the instinctive symbolism of “magical realism” to create a personal neo-realist idiom. Her work is formal, yet playful; contemporary, yet timeless; and joyous, yet mysterious, evocative and dreamlike. In Yana’s...  More »

Kevin Muente

Kevin Muente

My desire to explore the human experience via the metaphor of landscape led me to include figures within nature. I hope that the viewer reads these as metaphysical senses of place. The natural landscape serves as a backdrop to moments of human action, but the emotions conveyed tap into grand, universal themes. I cast my...  More »

Frank Oriti

This body of work examines the culture of blue-collar, middle-class individuals returning to the hometowns and neighborhoods that they originally attempted to escape.

Harriet Sawyer

Harriet Sawyer

"I was born to paint. Nothing was ever as compelling for me as picking up a brush, and reaching for a tube of paint. The choice came later. Searching for the connection between heart and soul, intellect and skill, and the ability to put it together, has been my life long journey. Creating a piece...  More »

Margo Selski

Margo Selski

I currently share my world with several dozen paintings, three university courses that I teach, three young children, and one husband. I am kept running a path through my day. The way is patched with detours, but the perimeters are permanent. However, in the center of the labyrinth perches a blank canvas. It is...  More »

Phillip Thomas

Phillip Thomas

The idea of studying at a “French Academy” in the United States is entrenched in cross-cultural pollination. I intend to manufacture cultural reliquaries, artifacts and social curiosities that represent the cultural tapestry of the Caribbean and the wider “new world,” using mediums and other agents of the old world.

Wang Xiaobo

Wang Xiaobo

Since the beginning of 2011, I started creating the series of “Two People’s World”. In the process of searching vulnerability and sensitivity within me, I created each piece with my perception of life. Calmness, sorrow, gray and respect for life always run through this series. I consider it a group of realist creations marked by...  More »
