either way


I am loving these oil paintings by Michael Carson. I like the way the paint is washed-out looking in some areas, and thick and globby in others. He has a background in graphic design and loves fashion, both of which are evident in his work, from the stylish figures, bold divisions of colors, and variation of […]

mille fleurs


Victoria Selbach paints nude women, with a strong interest in the play of light and dark that falls onto the body. (This is perhaps most evident in the fourth image.) I love how deeply individual the women are portrayed.  Light sources are clear in each composition, and the fall of light onto the figures is […]

flesh, sea


I’ve intended to blog about Monica Cook for a while now. Her oil paintings are imaginative, albeit a bit disturbing in content. I like how impeccably she paints a portrait, while at the same time adding invented elements to the scenes – sea creatures, sliminess, perishable food items. These slimy details embed questions within the […]

I could not find much information on artist Elena Cermaria, but I did find these paintings of hers. They have a darker, dream-like quality about them – especially those with heavily blue/green color palettes. The third image really stands out with its baroque color palette and lighting. I like seeing the varying colors throughout her […]

Daphne Descends


Daphne Descends is the title of Alessia Iannetti‘s new body of work that will be on exhibit starting tomorrow at Rome’s Dorothy Circus Gallery. Mostly graphite, her mixed-media work is intricately detailed, with seldom splashes of color. Iannetti depicts solitary female figures among elements of nature. via.

Jennifer Cronin painted the following images. She depicts mundane activities with a somewhat ghostly twist..easy access for an imaginative train of thought. Hell, I get carried away with her painterly-realism and soft skin tone colors. In fact, the act of painting is often referenced outright. Have fun with ’em! via.



Semblance is the name of a 2009 series of drawings by artist Hellovon. His mixing of realism with abstraction makes for a dreamy feel to his work, which is furthered by the pretty girls he uses as a recurring subject. I am overwhelmingly impressed by his graphite skills; the blur-effect presented feels more like paint […]

Found someone who paints with acrylics! Winston Chmielinski is a New York based artist and writer. Depicting figures, he uses expressive brush strokes and a variety of heavily saturated colors over skin tones. The often blurred rendition of a figure seems to suggest the painting is not about merely representing a person. Even when the […]

fashion friday


Lovin these fashion illustrations by Brazil-based Camilla do Rosario, particularly how she mixes delicacy with dominant patterns and colors. Color and negative space are balanced so that a focal point (the model) is clear. Her meticulous use of line is also attractive (surprise surprise.) The hair of each figure is impressive, but I keep going […]

filthy rautten


Kathryn Macnaughton is a Toronto-based artist. Her process is quirky, witty even, as she appropriates slightly pornographic imagery in drawing/collage work with various objects, shapes, and soft colors. The result is both impressive and funny in an almost-absurd kind of way. I got a kick out of her work, anyway. Several of these images were […]
