25-11-2016

This is a big question that needs to be taken seriously. What is the purpose of art? Working with coordinating this artist collective and promoting their artwork via social media, I see a general trend by viewers responding toward the visually appealing artworks. But serious artwork isn’t always about the visually appealing. Sometimes we want …
Summer on the Dordogne by Steven Christian Reed

Memory Lane was never so charming before the artist Steven Christian Reed put it to canvas. Beautifully unorthodox in his approach to art, Reed captures, not just a subject onto canvas, but the impression of the hazy recollection and naive understanding of the world seen through children’s eyes. His unique adaptations for post-impressionist techniques make …

The work of German artist, Astrid Stöppel, is referred to as “minimalism”—art that makes its statement in the briefest of terms, makes it clear and concise, and leaves the viewer stupefied with the lingering question, “Did I understand that or am I missing something?” It’s really no small wonder that one would regard her art this way. The answer …

It’s fair to declare Brandon Scott a portrait artist, because, clearly, portraits are his specialty. It would never be fair to say that he is “just” a portrait artist, however. The word “just” diminishes the quality and importance of the art of portraits, and it assumes that Scott possesses no other potential to his skill as an artist. …

Why Beauty Matters hosted by Roger Scruton is a wonderful examination of the role beauty has in our lives and meaning. In  his examination, many facets are discussed. I found myself looking at it from a sociological perspective, too, and what is happening in the world of modern art, entertainment, and television programming. How these …

Green And Gold Trees by Eleanor Douglas

Her name is Eleanor Douglas, an artist and she was my maternal grandmother’s aunt—my great-great- aunt. Allow me the honour of introducing you to a woman who is very dear to my heart, even though I never met her. In fact, she was born 90 years and 5 months before I was, and died just shy of 48 …
Soulmate, watercolour by Stephanie Noblet

24-06-2016

One need not survey a large selection of Stephanie Noblet’s art in order to see that she lives up to her name, “Noblet” or “Noble.” While it may be argued that her work pushes the line between art and what some may see as sexually evocative, still, it is clear that she keeps that line …
Romance is Dancing by Alain Laugier

16-03-2016

A resident of Nice, France, artist Alain Laugier’s typical topics for his paintings are, not surprisingly, romantic. While he does delve into the area of painting portraits with decidedly less success, his emphasis is the romantic scene. On the whole, his artistic fascination is on a scene in a wide variety of places, (the beach, …
