Sita Rupe’s Collages of Americana

March 14th, 2016 Posted by Art, Collage, Featured, Los Angeles, Mixed Media, Paintings, San Francisco, Screenprints No Comment yet

Sita Rupe creates iconic images that recall a bygone era of lively conversations in sun-baked kitchens that stand in the mind with an immediate, almost brutal force. Her craft is executed using clear formal technique: precision, finish and style. There is no chaos or distortion here – only lively play, light days and new beginnings.

Finding Order in the Chaotic Abstract Art of Juun Y.

February 29th, 2016 Posted by Abstract, Art, Featured, New York, Paintings, Photography, San Francisco, Street Art No Comment yet

Juun Y states,”A creative mess is preferable to an idle neatness,” which works perfectly to represent the artwork he produces. Even though his work is very abstract and unique, it all makes sense and is wonderful to look at.

Sam Kirk Shows Chicago Her Love

February 16th, 2016 Posted by Art, Chicago, Featured, Murals, Paintings No Comment yet

Chicago natives may be familiar with the work of artist Sam Kirk. Her paintings – often gracing public spaces and always offering a passionate social message – draw their inspiration from Chicagoland’s urban life and in particular the experience of her upbringing on the city’s South Side. Kirk is an outspoken advocate for the local communities that give Chicago its vibrancy, and she sees her mission as one of expressing their stories and their identities.

Lorna Simpson’s Artwork Delves Into History with Abstract Ink Portraits

December 1st, 2015 Posted by Art, Collage, Featured, Mixed Media, New York, Paintings, Photography No Comment yet

Simpson’s sparse, sepia portraits depict women with anonymity – we see only the line of a shoulder blade or the sweep of a collarbone. This universalizes their bodies but also confronts us with an almost unnerving intimacy. These photos are then interwoven, thematically and literally, with the artifacts of a dark history – braids of hair, lonely shoes, empty dinner plates, and abandoned slave quarters.

Vibrant Abstract Cityscapes by Elizabeth Grube

November 9th, 2015 Posted by Art, Chicago, Featured, Los Angeles, Paintings No Comment yet

Elizabeth Grube’s fine art pieces incorporate abstract images of modern day architecture: bridges, buildings and arches, but painted with a looseness that defy their utilitarian purposes. It’s clear that she gains inspirations from early impressionist artists through the blending of colors while incorporating simplistic yet strong outlines of building structures in the creation of these vibrant abstract cityscapes.
