Executing these patterns in oil paint atop prints of historical portraits radically alters the images and changes our perception of them, even as they retain a certain familiarity. It transmutes their formality and tradition into something wholly contemporary, ushering these “re-mastered” portraits into a modern idiom." - Sydney Cash  photo 1_zpswtvf449s.jpg  photo 5_zpswaqcmmzk.jpg

Brent Estabrook

 photo LincolnbyBrent_zps9irqotq5.jpg  photo WashingtonbyBrent_zpsenej9jxq.jpg Brent Estabrook's playful work, ripe with sociopolitical commentary and fraught with the unbridled passion of a determined young artist, challenges the viewer to reconsider familiar images, products and ideas as he himself explores the liminal space between discovery and curiosity. He is inspired by artist such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and the portraiture work of Rembrandt, and over the years he has transformed his study into a style which is uniquely his own. To date his collection is mainly held by private collectors throughout California. His work is currently on display in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and he is evaluating opportunities for representation in New York.  photo AlibyBrent_zpszbarxatb.jpg

He first began exhibiting in 1979 and his works deal primarily with ways of representing urban topographies and narratives. He is known for panoramic layered city vistas and figurative groupings and has a long held preoccupation for the way human beings negotiate territories. Within his paintings, drawings and prints we see influences of contemporary global culture and recent history that range from science fiction and film through to urban social debates. His extensive travels in Asia and living in cities such as New York, London and Venice have deeply influenced his practice. Cattapan’s work has been accorded many accolades.  photo Dominik-Mersch-Gallery-Jon-Cattapan-Atonal-Group-Cannareggio-1-2014-monotypes_zpsylr2skdo.jpg  photo Dominik-Mersch-Gallery-Jon-Cattapan-Atonal-Group-Cannareggio-4-2014-monotypes_zpsvfkuzh6e.jpg

Charlie Clift

On a recent skiing trip Charlie Clift, a London based portrait photographer was struck by the effect the weather has on our faces. Panda eyes, red noses, wide grins and sun-kissed cheeks - Charlie took his camera to the slopes to photograph the faces of winter sports enthusiasts as they arrived down from the slopes for their lunch break. The result is a collection of fascinating faces all exposed to the same weather conditions - harsh alpine wind, blazing sunshine and icy snowflakes. If there is one piece of advice to give it is: always wear sunscreen. More photos on Charlie’s website here.  photo 09_SkiingFaces_zpskiy21cdz.jpg  photo 02_SkiingFaces_zps9zkorppd.jpg
