Transitional Oil Paintings

Basfagel

Basfagel is the nom de plume of this talented artist and pianist, a graduate of New York University. She has studied art and music since the age of eight. Her long time piano teacher, an older woman from Italy, always stressed the impact of rhythm and movement as the grace of a woman’s soul. In the artist’s own words: “My women in paint are my tribute to Mrs. Paglissi. The musical instrument is the metaphor for the rhythm of life; the circles in each work are the visual continuation of the musical note and the cycle of life.” Basfagel’s work is collected throughout the United States.

Pica Birt

Born in Romania in 1964, Pica Birt graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelors degree in Architecture. Fascinated by space, she wanted to take time to study and understand the relationship between solid and void, light and shadow, and the importance of searching for a concept and the meaning of proportions, texture and color. Upon graduation, she immediately shifted to the Ontario College of Art and became an independent artist. Birt’s art explores the surface of a moment. There is a sense of oscillation between what is certain and uncertain, the transient impression of things that surround us. Sensuousness defines Birt’s paintings. Her artworks seem to be captured in time at the moment of their most mysterious vibrancy. They emanate optimism and energy. Every surface is filled with color and texture. Sharp edges and contrasting colors produce images that reveal sceneries, objects and environments of a familiar but mysterious calm.

Christian Charvet

Christian Charvet was born in Paris in 1940.  The artist’s work has evolved through three periods: 1) the “Blue Period” (1970’s), which was characterized by monochrome coloration; 2) the “Blue Period Continuation” (1980’s), in which social groups appear, represented within a carnival theme, but still monochrome and cold looking; and 3) the “Red Period” (1990’s), in which color tones change and he introduces a series of studies on painters and poets.  Most notable is his study of the poet Arthur Rimbaud.  Charvet’s work was recently honored by the French Postal Service, which issued a stamp with Rimbaud’s image.

John Karl Claes

John Karl Claes was born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley of California. He completed a B.A. at California State University (Stanislaus) and then earned an M.F.A. in painting and drawing from the University of North Carolina. Claes’ work is inspired by California’s Central Valley and the surrounding foothills. It combines traditional and abstract styles. It is not straightforward realism; rather it is descriptive, nature-based and primarily formal. The image created is simultaneously abstract and representational, an integrated two-dimensional pattern and an implied three-dimensional space. John’s work has received numerous awards throughout the United States and is held in collections all over the country. He lives with his wife and son in Turlock, California where he also maintains his studio.

Lori Daniels (& Stephen White)

Based out of their farm in Mapleton, Illinois, noted furniture and folk art dealer Stephen R. White removes, collects and assembles tin pieces, mostly from commercial buildings destined to be demolished.  Artist Lori Daniels then hand mixes paints, resins and glazes for each unique art tin piece, producing a tile-like effect.   The ceiling panels date from 1860 to 1900 and represent a rare piece of American architecture and decorative history.  Many display botanical or classical designs in the Arts & Crafts, Victorian or Art Nouveau styles.  Each panel is a one-of-a kind original, signed and dated.  While the antique tin art was originally destined for outdoor use, it is increasingly displayed indoors.  If the panels are used outdoors, care must be taken to preserve the finish from further rusting through the application of several coats of a clear sealant.

Alex Dobrowsky

Born in 1963 in Russia, Alex Dobrowsky showed talent at an early age, resulting in his attendance at The Academy for Gifted Children and later at the Repin Academy of Fine Arts, both in St. Petersburg, Russia. Later he studied with artist, Suvorov. He has developed a figurative style in oil reminiscent of French artist Paul Chagall that is primitive, yet sophisticated. His subject matter seems sentimental as it includes Russian folk images of musicians and peasants. Whimsical images of figures, both at rest and play, set in muted landscapes celebrate the past and remind the viewer of the days before high technology. Alex Dobrowsky has repeatedly demonstrated his innate artistic talents through his numerous exhibitions around Europe.

Ken Elliott

Elliott is well known as a colorist, having studied under the famous Wolf Kahn. He got his start by aiding an art restorer in Texas, as well as working as a picture framer, where he often handled artworks destined for museums, galleries and important private collections. He later spent a good deal of time In California where he was exposed to the wonderful varieties of the California landscape. While in California he developed an interest in photography, as well as seriously beginning to draw and paint. His style employs rich colors and his subjects seem to vibrate on the canvas. The artist works from his home and studio in Colorado where his paintings are inspired by the Aspens in his surrounding natural environment.

Alix Evendorff

A Colorado artist, Alix Evendorff studied extensively with the internationally known abstract artists, Dale Chisman and Amy Metier. In her own words… “I believe that true meaning cannot be conveyed by the outer appearance of things, but must be recognized on a deeper level of awareness. Above all, I consider myself a colorist. I believe art is timeless and evokes the spiritual, be it through signs, symbols, colors or forms. I continue to explore the possibilities of line and luminous color while moving into a more three dimensionally considered space. Along with pushing the picture plane, my paintings create a visual dichotomy between structured (conscious) and unstructured (unconscious) elements.” Alix likes to watch people view her work. They invariably each see something different and entirely unique to their own experience. Her work is on display throughout the United States.

Maya Eventov

Maya Eventov born in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) and grew up around art. She studied at the St. Petersburg State Academy of Industrial and Applied Arts beginning at age six. She graduated in 1987 with a master's degree in Graphic Design and began working as a illustrator for children's books. Eventov's paintings are characterized by a thick application of acrylic paint using a selection of different-sized palette knives. The paint is applied as both blended and pure colors. Smaller knives are used to create depth and detail in her paintings. She then uses a series of varnishes designed to create a wet paint effect. After the fall of the Iron Curtain, Maya immigrated to Canada where she now works and lives with her family. Her work can be found in collections throughout Canada, Great Britain and the United States.

Doug Hunt

Ever since I can remember, I’ve dreamed of being an artist. And...like other young artists, Disney gave me my first exposure to the possibilities. Then in the 60’s, psychedelic posters and hot rod art were probably my first exercises in seriously working from my imagination. Even in the military, I ended up as a staff artist and photographer, my first practical experience as a commercial artist, graphic designer and photographer. For the most part, my commercial work was detailed pen and ink drawings. Because of this, my fine art tended to be loose and less structured. In the early 80’s, I started working with oil pastels. It was during this time my work became more impressionistic. In 2002, I began doing etchings where my line drawing experience came in handy for the initial projects. Before long, I found myself exploring looser, less ridged techniques. I still prefer to work from my imagination. After so many years of creating imagery that had specific requirements, I really enjoy the freedom to create my own reality. Watching an image develop in front of you is really fascinating. My landscapes may be influenced by the desire to escape, to be somewhere quiet and unhurried. My favorite pieces are always the ones that have nothing much going on in them, just open space and an inviting path to nowhere in particular.

David Kim

David Kim was born in 1961 into a family of artists. At an early age, his natural artistic talents were apparent and, with the encouragement of his family, he followed through, completing his university degree in Fine Arts. The artist’s work is influenced by his extensive travels throughout Europe and the United States. His landscapes are loosely painted with confidence, using lush, rich colors, often depicting big skies and low horizon lines. The result is very dramatic. David Kim’s paintings are collected throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.

Jeff Koehn

Jeff Koehn is one of the hottest young artists in the United States today. Born in a small Wisconsin town, his first grade teacher was prescient when she told him: “You will be a famous artist some day.” Jeff received his formal art education from the Art Institute of Colorado, where he graduated with honors in December, 1995. While at the Art institute, he received extensive training in pastel, oil and acrylic painting from world renowned artists Doug Dawson, Lynn Kircher and Don Long. In 1995 he was awarded First Place in the national Creative “Geanie” Student Competition. Jeff’s style has evolved from early emphasis on photo-realism with the use of pastels in portraits. His earlier illustrative work has appeared in numerous publications. As he shifted to oil and acrylics, he has become absorbed with the excitement of color and texture, refining his paintings with dry brush techniques that lend both complexity and subtlety to his distinctive style. His influences come from Vermeer’s use of light spilling across his paintings, and also from John Singer Sergeant’s lush portraits.

Irina Koulikov

Born in Kokand Uzbekistan, Irina Koulikov studied fine art at Moscow University. Before turning to painting, she was a student of music, studying at the Leningrad Conservatory and singing in the Rimsky-Korakov Opera Theatre. Her interest in the rhythms and harmony of nature is what first drew her to music. While the translucent light effects of William Turner’s paintings may be traced in Irina’s oeuvre, it is the 19th-century French romantic tradition that emerges as the most prominent influence for the artist. The soft brushstroke, diffuse light, and muted palette all recall Camille Corot’s portraits of the Fontainebleau Forest. Irina uses acrylic paint, applied in opaque layers to create volume. Most essential to her technique is the liberal use of liquid encaustic. In addition to creating a thick and dynamic texture, the wax medium also serves to seemingly age the canvas by softening and yellowing its color. The result is a dream-like quality in her work. Irina lives and works in Toronto. Her work is exhibited throughout North America.

Joyce Lieberman

Joyce Lieberman was born in Detroit in 1955. She earned a BFA from the University of Michigan in 1977 and an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin in 1981. She is well known for her “UNStill Life” series, featuring painted works on paper displaying playful, flower-filled vases in luscious colors with colliding and overlapping patterns. Her “Fiesta” series offers smaller works in the same medium. Joyce’s “Personal Archaeology” series features subtle references to correspondence, mixed with patterns, shapes and colors. Lieberman has exhibited all over the United States and has her work installed in nearly 100 public collections. She now resides in Venice, California.

Goli Mahallati

Goli Mahallati graduated from the University of Tehran in 1977 and, in 1979, completed her Masters work at the American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts. Her paintings are especially known for their warm and luminescent color palette and her mysterious forms. They are less about thinking and more about intriguing energies from which they have arisen. Goli works with a pallet knife, rather than with the more traditional brush, creating bold areas of color and texture. Her images of individuals alone and in communal groups are stirring. The artist now makes her home in Southern California. Her work can be found in private collections throughout the United States.

Nancy Ngo

Born in Chicago, Ill., but transplanted to Arizona as a child, Nancy Ngo received her B.F.A. degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2001.  Nancy's awareness of the play of light and shadow and its effect on color plays an important role in her work today.  The dichotomy of the natural desert landscape of Arizona versus the urban downtown environment of Chicago led her to a certain "no rules" style of painting.  Her paintings have a certain raw, playful, and sometimes unfinished quality in which the work holds a kind of potential energy, excitement and freedom.  Ngo’s work is held in collections throughout the United States.

Patrick O'Connor

Self-taught artist Patrick J. O’Connor’s passion for painting ignited from an experience as a young child in Ithaca, NY. At age 13, Patrick happened upon an art gallery window that featured a watercolor demonstration. His youthful curiosity and imagination drew him into the gallery to discover the artistic elements that continue to inspire his work today. Working from many pallets, through both traditional and non-traditional methods, Patrick allows the paint to flow across the canvas. Using broad washes and dry brushing while adding and cutting the paint to reveal the direction of the work, he capitalizes on the element of surprise. These works “push” the reality of color to bring you closer to experiencing the way he responds to the world around him. In his own words… “For a painting to work it has to have an undercurrent of abstract power; for that power keeps the painting fluid until that moment of emotion is right.”

Tim O'Toole

Timothy O'Toole was born in Dayton, Ohio, started painting at an early age and went on to earn a B.F.A. from the University of Cincinnati. He is particularly fond of landscapes and is inspired by the work of Claude Monet. Tim's work is classified as "contemporary impressionism." He is best known for his plein-air painting and his ability to capture mood and lighting. In his words…

"When I am in the field, I react to whatever captivates me and I work quickly to capture what I see as the light changes. It's a mental exercise. When a scene captivates my attention, I paint, spreading the paint over the canvas using brushes, palette knives and my fingers…anything to capture the moment."

Sarah Van Beckum

Sarah Van Beckum was born in Hartford, Wisconsin in 1954.  She was educated at the University of Wisconsin (Madison), as well as the Sorbonne in Paris and La Ibero Americano in Mexico.  Sarah’s heavy palette knife technique and exaggerated botanicals and still life images create a very distinctive, “artsy” style.  Her work has evolved from mixed media using found objects to acrylic on wood panels, often adding collage accents for patterns and texture.  Her work can be found in galleries in the United States and Europe.

Van Matino

Born in 1955, Van Matino takes everyday objects and elements of nature to create striking compositions. He was raised with an appreciation for nature and for simplicity. Graduating in 1977 with a degree in philosophy, Van Matino incorporates his heritage and education in his work. From the artist’s perspective, his paintings strive to depict harmony. His beautifully balanced compositions place light and shadow against a simple, yet rich palette. The combination creates a unified whole…sometimes whimsical, sometimes intense and sometimes serene. His paintings always leave the viewer feeling complete. Van Matino’s heritage and harmony shows through to create exceptional works of art. His work can be found in collections throughout the United States.

Steven Webb

Steven Webb began his fascination with art at a young age. It wasn’t until he was exposed to the uniquely spiritual dimension found in the iconography of the 2,000 year old Eastern Orthodox Church that he found his true artistic inspiration. He studied at the Prosophon School for Iconology, hosted at the Sacred Art Institute in Mystic, Connecticut. His work is heavily influenced by the Russian Orthodox techniques of working with gold leaf, as well as the ancient Byzantine methods of using pure pigments in their religious iconography. Aside from preserving the simplicity of the subject matter, “mood through texture” is also a major focus of Steven's work. By manipulating the way mixed mediums react to each other, he is able to create something new all together. These elements help establish his distinctive style as expressed in the angelic figurative work for which he is most known today.

Alexander Zerbé

Alexandre Zerbé was born in Montreal, Canada in 1974 and completed his Bachelor’s in Fine Art at Concordia University.  The artist’s interest is to follow a continuity in the figurative lyricism of his acrylics.  Lyricism because the scenes he depicts always seem to contain a sundry object that appears to the spectator as if voluntarily placed, thereby leaving room for interpretation.  He especially enjoys putting emphasis on the impression of décor, often in playful atmospheres.  Zerbé has exhibited throughout Canada.  His work is widely held in the United States and Canada.
