LOll3. Saccstry: T-Shirts, Posters, Greeting Cards, Stickers, Wall Art and More. Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood. One of my favorite details in Rossetti’s Proserpine is that her lips are painted almost the exact shade of the pomegranate.

Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood

Those luscious, cupid’s bow lips and the elongated neck are indicative of Rossetti’s later style. It was a time in his life when he was plagued with mental health troubles and personal drama, yet in this period he created many of the vivid representations of women that have become synonymous with the name Dante Gabriel Rossetti. La Ghirlandata is another example of the perfect Rossetti mouth. But even when the lips are not depicted in an exaggerated pout, we can still find works that celebrate the mouth.

There is no finer example than Bocca Baciata: Bocca Baciata celebrates the sensual woman. Going back even further, Lizzie Siddal appears with a strand of hair between her lips in what is probably the first Rossetti work she posed for, The Return of Tibullus to Delia. After Elizabeth Siddal’s death he painted Beata Beatrix as a posthumous tribute. Monica cook. Jeremy Geddes. Mary Ellen Johnson. Website for Precision Realist Artist Mary Ellen Johnson.

Giovanna Garzoni. Giovanna Garzoni (1600–1670) was an Italian painter of the Baroque era.

Giovanna Garzoni

She was unusual for Italian artists of the time for two reasons: first, in that her themes were mainly decorative and luscious still-lifes of fruits, vegetables, and flowers, and second, because she was a woman. Garzoni was born in Ascoli Piceno. Her training was with an otherwise unknown painter from her native town of Ascoli Piceno. Tomasz Alen Kopera. I come from Poland.

Tomasz Alen Kopera

I was born in 1976. I have been painting ever since I remember. The subject matter of my paintings is the result of a fascination for human nature, as well as all that is dark and mysterious. Through my works I want to affect subconscious. I want to stop the spectator for a long moment and to arouse in him the need for consideration and contemplation.

Ricardo Belena. ''...I want to introduce in these pages some of my latest paintings and sculptures and gifts made in recent years.

This work that you can look is the result of many hours of sincere work and dedication every day, because for me art is my life and the best way to express myself. After a time of artistic training in various disciplines - painting, drawing, modeling, photography, etc. - and to share studio with other artists, I began my journey alone in the realization of a work which, after hesitation and concerns logical search , has been decanted into the realm of realistic painting. With a clear predominance of interiors and still lifes, collated with sporadic skirmishes in the landscape and portrait, I am translating my concern, diversifying topics as my mood and following orders that my friends and clients I have been doing.

Hope you like it.'' Artodyssey. Born in 1964 in Nevers, France.

Andrea Benson. "Artist's Profile: My work with encaustic seems like a fusion of many of my past art explorations; which included ceramics, papermaking, printmaking, photography and mixed media collage.

There is a sensuality of material and a sense of partnership with the medium that is integral to my enjoyment of the process and to the success of any piece. It is tactile, malleable and rich and also allows the delight of using a fragrant byproduct of the interaction of bees with flowers. It feels akin to cooking, creating a surface that often exudes an edible quality. Artodyssey. ''I use representation of ordinary elements as symbols, chosen from a psychological context thus causing a sense of tension, intrigue and dialogue among them.

Artodyssey

When staging still life my preference is to use objects arraigned as if in altars or theatre, distorting or placing elements in unexpected areas, to set a juxta- position statement of my own perceptions and experiences. In intending to transfer the sensations left from my dreams or meditations, I maximize the use of personal painting methods of the classical oil on linen traditional techniques. Fumi Mini Nakamura.

Vicente Romero Redondo. Vicente Romero Redondo Vicente Romero Redondo was born in 1956 in Madrid as the eldest of four sons.

Vicente Romero Redondo

Due to the work of his father, he grew up in many different towns all over Spain. The family moved back to Madrid when he was 15 years old. During his childhood, his parents thought he would dedicate his life to painting, as his caricatures of schoolmates and teachers were famous in every school where he studied and one would rarely see him without a pencil and a notepad in his hands. Romero achieved his dream: he began studies at the High School for Art San Fernando, the most prestigious art school in Spain (Salvador Dali studied there from 1922-1926). Julie Heffernan. Julie Heffernan "Her paintings have been described as "downright haunting," "enchanting but eerie" and having an "offbeat punch. " And while Julie Heffernan of Art and Design agrees, she says she never strives for those results. "Haunting and enchanting and eerie are wonderful words for getting a sense of how my paintings affect other people," she said, "but I don't drive or steer the work to any particular outcome.

For me, it's about tracking these pictures in my head that I derive out of a process called image streaming. "This unique approach is how Julie begins work on all her paintings, and something she is trying to teach her students. "I'm very interested in surrealism as an art form because it engages the idea of 'unheimlich,' which is the uncanny, the idea of the familiar with the unfamiliar. Then one day Julie found herself creating a building in one of her paintings. Past Exhibitions > Lisa Yuskavage - ICA - Institute of Contemporary Art - Philadelphia, PA. Julie Heffernan.

From Julie Heffernan’s Constructions of Self Julie Heffernan creates sensuous figurative painting, like co-Yale MFAS, John Currin and Linda Yuskavage, but her luminous oils are patently unique among them and most working artists today. A Victorian impetus to conjoin, edging toward pastiche, creates artfully staged Surrealist environments. They avoid the mawkish or macabre by virtue of an evocative 17th century Baroque styling and the dignity with which she handles her primary subject, herself. Good construction is essential to the success of such works, built of disparate things suggesting disparate philosophies and ages. Yet the finished product is seamless, making it easy for the viewer to willfully suspend disbelief in the face of rampant artifice.
