Dress 7. Pastel on paper, 28″ x 38″

Sara Swan

My current work is an examination and celebration of the human figure, body language, fashion and costume. I base much of my art on simple figure drawings from a weekly class. I have worked as large as life-size and as small as a ten inch square canvas. I draw both men and women, but my art tends to be female-centric. Though I use people as my subjects, I’m not a portrait artist, and in general I am not representing any specific person in my art. Read more

Untitled. Oil on canvas, 36 x 48

Marina Izrailevich

The roots of my life and work are steeped in Russian art and culture. My earlier works had a whiff of Russian Constructivism (purely unconsciously; I was thrilled when it was pointed out to me). I am still searching for a way to express the breadth of feelings and emotions and the struggle for meaning and life’s anchor. My major influences are Mark Rothko, Wassily Kandinsky and Marc Chagall. My heart leaps when I see their work and I think ‘how do I do THAT’… read more.

Woman. Digital art

Arthur Jacob 

Throughout my life I have always had a greater visual sense about how the world looked versus other senses. This visual dominance in perceiving the world has profoundly affected my work as an artist. My art offers an infinite variety of visual perceptions and interpretations for the viewer. The viewer is told what the “real Life” image is in the title of the piece, but through abstraction and reconstruction of that image, the viewer is then asked and challenged to explore the shapes, colors, movements and forms, which the abstraction and reconstruction presents. Colors and shapes become emotion, while form and movement become attitude. Even when a work is easily recognized there is still a predominate thread of color, movement, shape and form. The techniques to achieve these photographic abstractions and reconstructions are a thoughtful and purposeful digital manipulation. Using a mouse rather than a brush to achieve a powerful medium of expression and communication, creates this style of fine art… read more.
