She brings us seventeen wonderful new paintings to enjoy of which we obtained two more new images (thanks to Richard Goodall) since AM last talked about her.

Preview/Interviews: Amy Sol @ Mondo Bizzarro

Amy Sol’s “Smoke & Water” opens at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery on December 6th in Italy. With her show still being about 2 weeks away, fans of Amy Sol’s work are on the edge of their seats. Luckily, Amy has been keeping us in the loop through her blog. We know that many of you can’t get enough of Amy so we asked her some questions. Here is an excerpt from the interview where she talks a little about one of her pieces: “there is a […]

Interviews: Allison Sommers

When you look at her work, one would suspect that “detail” could have been Allison Sommer’s middle name. You can’t help but move your head closer and closer to the painting and then shake it in disbelief at how meticulous her brushstrokes are. As a matter of fact, she often paints under a magnifying glass to make sure she get the desired effect. What is even more amazing is her “story-telling” does not suffer from this focus on details. Her paintings always seem to be […]

Preview/Interviews: Candice Tripp @ Lazarides

A young artist whose work we admire, South African born artist Candice Tripp, will be opening her show “Home Is Where The Telly Is” with Lazarides this Thursday.  Although her work is not like the typical from Laz’s stable of street artists, her solo show starts on November 13th at the Newcastle location.   She was kind enough to send us some preview images for our readers as well as answer some questions after the jump…

Studio Visits: Jeff Soto (Part II)

Here is Part II of our visit to Jeff Soto’s studio (see part I here). Besides showing us some of his new work for his upcoming show at the Riverside Art Museum, Jeff also decided to let us watch him paint. At first, there were just splotches of color he used as the background, but soon characteristic shapes and details were added. It was a real joy to watch Jeff at work and amazing how quickly he worked. See the process after the jump.

Preview/Interviews: Jeremiah Ketner @ Melanie Cooper Gallery

One of the shows we are looking forward to this weekend is Jeremiah Ketner’s “Morning Showers” opening on November 7th at the Melanee Cooper Gallery in Chicago.  Ketner has really taken his work to another level with his recent shift to focusing on a central character and a mastery of his distinctive color palette.  There really seems to be a comforting sense of balance to his compositions in this new body of work.  He was gracious enough to take some time to answer some questions […]
