    The first painting from Kris Lewis is absolutely stunning.

    The petals of roses flying are so soft, yet the girl is a strong character.

    As I look at all these paintings from Kris Lewis I find that she uses backgrounds and clothing that comes from a past era, but she uses faces/features/makeup that is quite current and the juxtaposition of the two is simply brilliant.

    I didn’t know about her at all, but I’ve bookmarked this page and will try to find out where you can buy her art.

    Jeff – is she a Canadian artist?

    Wow – thanks for exposing me to such beauty on a Sunday morning!

    I wish that I had the brain to hand dexterity Kris has! Just found your site today. Very cool. Keep it up!

    This is really great, I get the feeling like this is a modern take on Mannerism (esp. the last one) and Renaissance.
    Great work (Y)

    These are amazing! I would love for him to do one of me!

  • Andrew

    Saw Kris Lewis earlier this month at Art Basel in Miami. His stuff is even more amazing in front of you.

  • Brittany


    I absolutely love the artwork, it’s exquisite!
    My parents are art collectors, and I’d like to get a price list please.


  • Richard Chalmers

    Gorgeous work. Beautiful, evocative, haunting, and sexual. Beautifully rendered but they go so far beyond the beautiful craftsmanship. Who are the women? How did they get where they are? Who is the painter? What is the story?

  • http://www.kfmgallery.com Kristin Forbes-Mullane

    so awesome… i’m a huge fan.

  • Jesse

    this is glorious

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

lifeisadance1 lifeisadance2 lifeisadance3

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
