    these are beautiful – gritty, yet rich, love the perspectives and use of space and color.

  • Ciara

    Heavy Egon Schile influence here but very lovely!

  • Matías

    Love this!

  • rachel

    These are brilliant. Very “beat”.

  • Dean

    Very cool. Seems contemporary yet full of painterly references (Alice Neel, Vuillard, Pearlstein). I can see the T-L too, (especially in the bottom half of the top picture.

  • Abbey Bennett

    I can’t not comment on these. Jeff- once again, amazing curating. These are stunning pieces that are most certainly reminiscent of Schiele’s work but are undoubtedly original in many ways. I am blown away. It’s amazing when you stumble upon art that has such an extraordinary effect on yourself.

    • thank abbey – yea i love these too, i especially love the detailing in some of the clothing

  • great. i love this color

  • Ted Higney

    I had the chance to see her show in Chelsea last year and much to my pleasure, they stood up in person as well. There is something incredibly interesting in these portraits. Material is very well handled

    I love how so many of them focus on her feet. Feet, specifically the female foot, holds so much power and sexuality these days. The lowest part of the female’s body, often the sweatiest.. The female feet hold the essence of her natural scent, they hold the dirt of the day, the sweat of the day. They are also packed full of sensual curves. The pink soles and white tops, or the white soles and tanned tops. They are associated with dominance and sensual power-play. There is something to say about a 6 foot tall, muscular, deep voiced, energetic man, dropped down to his knees, kissing the sweaty feet of his woman. These definitely capture the subtle sensuality of the female feet, however “lacking” (not in a bad, out of focus way) in serious detail. Her face is always off, thinking about something, while her body does its natural, sexual self-advertising… The female body is so beautiful, even the loose symbol! of a painted female is enough to ignite sparks in the male’s mind. The curves are enough to almost turn us into bucking young lads all over again. This woman is so slender and large, her eyes show bags, her skins pigment is off, pale, in unflattering blue shadow, yet… YET, there is a feminine undertone to each of these paintings, feminine, yet, (In my own opinion) quite dominant in nature, actually. (for a lot of them) The bicep tattoo, the sharp lines, blue shadow, dark, blue/black hair, the large hands, and feet… She is screaming dominance in her femininity and its beautiful. Beautiful. 🙂 I like them a lot. Ty for sharing! 🙂

  • Joseph

    The detail and textures are also awe-inspiring 🙂 I only know of one egon painting/drawing, and it is hanging in my room… And the slender, off scale (especially for a woman) nature of her anatomy does remind me of this poster.. However the detail and the color in these is 2012, its ADD/ADHD satisfying. I really like them. 🙂 thx.

  • jonathan

    incredible paintings….its been about 100 years since schiele painted those gangily expressionist figures, and i think for 100 years artists have been hearing ‘i like it, reminds me of schiele,’ im gonna say this is original and beautiful work and unlike schiele in many ways…just because he painted figures doesnt mean every other artist painting figures is copying him 🙂

  • so beautiful 🙂

  • Ebubemichael

    i love it, i love it, i love it!

  • lepetitfaon

    absolutely gorgeous, I love the texture in all of these, and yes, she paints lovely feet!

  • Awesome!

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
