Releases: Femke Hiemstra – “I Think of Thee When Far Away” Postcards Portfolio

PressurePrinting.com recently released a postcard portfolio from Dutch artist and illustrator, Femke Heimstra, just on time for her new website launch. Famous for her recognizable “anthropomorphic animals that  roam in a dark, fairytale like world, together with all sorts of characters”, she often paints with acrylics on old surfaces like antique panels or books. It was exactly this kind of work that the studio and the artist wanted to show with this release. This is her 2nd collaboration with Pressure Printing since the successful release of her intaglio […]

Previews: Kris Kuksi – “Revival” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Openings: Marco Mazzoni – “Naturama” & Lindsey Carr – “La Petite Singerie” @ Roq La Rue Gallery

There is an old saying that the window to your soul is through the eyes. Marco Mazonni has capatilized on this, by excluding them from his brilliant color pencil drawings. The exclusion mystifies and intrigues, while the surrounding plants, flowers, and familiar animals try to ease our reactions.  Naturama features three larger works and a bounty of smaller pieces on moleskin paper, giving us a detailed look into Mazzoni’s animal kingdom. Several of the smaller pieces feature a monotone palette, with a ball-point pen replacing the usual colored pencils. Mimicking portraits […]

Interviews: Ray Caesar (2013)

After an interview with Ray Caesar back in 2011, we caught up recently with him again to talk some more about his art, his inspiration and his method. The opportunity presented itself shortly after the October 3rd opening of Truth, Light and Matter at Gallery House in Toronto, Canada – an unusual display space whose premise is to deliberately partner with galleries around the world on behalf of the artists. Take a look at our Q&A’s below… Arrested Motion (AM): During previous interviews, a lot has been written about […]

He just introduced three new pieces he painted for the New York gallery’s booth at Pulse Miami – Ascent, Eoan and Labent – meticulously detailed hyper-realistic oil on board pieces.
