I see a lot of artwork and go to a lot of shows and exhibits. I do this to make sure that I can find the right artwork for clients. I frequently write about shows and point out some of the things that I see, but I want to share with you some of the works I have really fallen in love with – they run the gamut: different media, different styles, and different price points.
Here are some that I think are worth buying right now:
Rita Blitt – She created these two-handed paintings by listening to music and then dancing on the paper with her brushes. I think they reveal an expression of connection to her environment.
Paul Ching-Bor – This painting will truly blow you away…WOW! It is a powerfully broody watercolor nearly 10ft. high. For me the barely visible architecture immediately transports me to the nighttime city.
Kwang Young Chun – Made out of mulberry paper tied into little triangle boxes reminiscent of little packages.
Etsuko Ichikawa – Her glass pyrographs on paper are so sexy – the molten glass presents a liquidity that reminds me of smoke, but the scorched paper is pristine.
Hong Seon Jang – His Geographic Wave piece is carved out of 50 years of National Geographic Magazines.
Heidi Jung – The vellum paper allows a luminocity that makes her ink and charcoal paintings come to life.
Nancy Lovendahl – I am in love with her carved stone pieces.
Patrick Marold – His sculptures are typically made of wood, glass or steel. I am drawn to the simplicity of form.
Agnes Martin – Her art transcends genre. Although they are typically minimal, the intensely meditative quality to her art points toward abstract expressionism.
Lynn Myers – I love the repetitive, flowing lines – it is easy to draw a connection to the Martins. For me the grids suggest and inward glance, while these flowing, waves of lines suggest the opposite with a reach outward.
There is a lot of great artwork out there and I am here to help you find it.
