Artist Crush: Sally Ross

Friday, February 5, 2016

Sally Ross is an Australian artist whose paintings are all about texture and the illusion of movement. Her landscapes often feature bodies of water, formed by deep blue undulating ripples. These bolts of blue are rough-hewn, like patches sewn together in a quilt, giving off the impression of water in an abstracted sense more than resembling the real thing. Remarking on Ross’ equally interesting portraits Dan Rule wrote, “We’re drawn to the figure only to become lost in the rippling pointilist hairdo.” The same can be said of the waves and leaves in her landscapes.

Renaissance Revisted: Jeffrey Chong Wang

Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Jeffrey Chong Wang is a contemporary painter whose work inevitably brings up comparisons to the Northern Renaissance. The subject matter, clothing and props are modern, if ambiguous, but the delicate application of detail, stylized representation of the human body and tightly- orchestrated compositions point back to the Dutch and Flemish painters from the 1400 to 1600’s. Accomplishing this level of technicality is no small feat; however, the beauty, humor and sense of mystery in the work is what seals the deal.
