In 1994, my life changed when I went to study under the direction of Master Patrick Betaudier in Monflanquin, France. Here at the Atelier Neo Medici, I was taught a modern version of the Renaissance technique known as the Technique Mixed. This technique, which combines detailed under painting with transparent oil glazes, dates back to the time of the 15th century Flemish master Jan van Eyck. Patrick not only taught me how to paint but also how to see things. Technique has become an extremely important factor in my painting, since discovering it, I have enjoyed painting a variety of subjects; mainly figurative but also still life. I currently exhibit my works at the Plus One gallery, London & Galerie Daniel Besseiche in France." - Toby Boothman  photo Toby-Boothman-1973-Passionforartcom34_zpsce4e1f60.jpg  photo Toby-Boothman-1973-Passionforartcom18_zps4bf30137.jpg

At times he even brings three or more forms together, as with a whale emerging from a submarine, the entirety of which has the appearance of a banana. Whether you regard the pieces as humorous or slightly disturbing, it’s hard to deny the ingenious way each creature is formed.'  photo wpfc17f7c9_05_06_zps9829cc62.jpg  photo tumblr_n2pm7lxGXH1qdhfhho1_1280_zps03157db2.jpg

Flavia Pitis

 photo 2012spontaneouseventsoflifeI40-50cm_zpsbfa3da87.jpg  photo reflectionofathoughtdet_zps1039773e.jpg Flavia Pitis’ art explores issues of identity and isolation. Her painting does not have the function to represent reality, but to make present what is missing in reality. Most times, Flavia Pitiș realizes this by isolating the subject and his confrontation with the loneliness of the chiaroscuro. Darkness introduces the immaterial, but sensitive forms of expecting something indefinable and outlines the aura of a mysterious presence. The universe of Flavia Pitiș’s actions unfolds in rooms without natural light. Painted by using the chiaroscuro technique, these works present actions that seem to be condemned by being made in the dark. In particular, this dark background creates the opportunity for the appearance of glows, flashes and reflexes. There is nothing else to help define space than the shadow cast by the human figure.
