The direct contact with the work of Anne Bachelier and Frederick Hart in New York was determinant. The stile of Bachelier and the philosophy of Hart released new ideas and gave the justification to paint in a new manner following ever since the “Idealistic School of Contemporary Representational Art” words found in a book of Hart’s work. This blend of these concepts along with some other influences led to the “Stories from the Lost Continent” series. Saré - Evgenia Sarkisian. Saré - Evgenia Sarkisian "The Genius takes the good anywhere it finds”.

Saré - Evgenia Sarkisian

This French saying implies especially well while thinking about the artistic mind of Saré (pseudonym of the artist Evgenia Sarkissian), saturated of a multitude of reminiscences in the extensive time and space of European culture. There one can see the duality of the real and the fantastic, present in the works of German romantic writer E.T.A.Hoffmann where, according to the Russian poet and philosopher Vladimir Soloviev, the fantastic personages, despite their strangeness, appear not as ghosts from an alien world, but as the other side of the same reality. One can find here the phantasmagorias of Petersburg stories by Nikolai Gogol, and first of all the Nose which had run away from major Kovalyov and was driving in a coach along Nevski avenue to make visits every day at three o’clock in the afternoon, dressed in a State counselor’s uniform.

David Mellon. David Mellon Whether in my still lifes or my figurative paintings, the goal is to create an abstract form of storytelling with images that are as simple and direct as children’s book illustrations while at the same time being as mysterious as dreams.Clarity and Ambiguity; balancing both of these elements is essential.

And though my pictures often resemble and are indeed informed by traditional forms of illustration, the important distinction between Fine Art and Illustration is in the intent. That is to say, I’m more interested in the emotional effect of an image than the specific narrative content. It may look like a book illustration, but it is only in appearance.

The only thing I’m looking to illustrate is my consciousness. Nicolás Picatto – Artista Plástico » Pintura. Artodyssey. Born 1938, March 2, in Rotterdam.

Theo Voorzaat is a typical, highly talented selfmade painter, very representative for contemporary realists. Before painting was his main occupation in life, he worked at various odd jobs, such as a truck driver, postman and letterpainter. He has never quite got used to the sudden public success and admiration which he has enjoyed since then.He travelled throughout the European continent, exploring the picturesque relics of recent Western civilisation, without, however, scorning the humble derelict shed which often inspires him to paintings of a rare magical atmosphere, in which a hovering sphere or similar symbol represents the ineluctable progress of technology and the resulting profound social disruption.

Such spheres form no immediate threat to the romantic atmosphere of the painting, but convey an extra dimension to it. The process of natural decay seems to fascinate the painter deeply. CHIURA OBATA. Haidee Becker. Born 1950 in Los Angeles, California.Lives and works in London.
