STEPHANIE LAWING

 
 
 
 

ENDLESS SUMMER
Acrylic on canvas -- 48 x 24 inches


"ENDLESS SUMMER is a dream.  Serenity is promised after the complete and easy surrender to its grace and stature.  A selected fraction of the greater subject is isolated and magnified for impact and to inspire awareness and appreciation for its generous attributes.  The narrow and upright work is filled to capacity with the even distribution of lively and pretty petals thus becoming a powerful design independent of the subject and intimating continued residency outside the frame that is granted for the imagination's exercise and benefit.  The analogous colour palette with interesting and delicate departures maintains the steadiness throughout.  The white background breaks through on occasion with meager donations that nonetheless satisfy the necessity of air, lightness and depth in this alive and sensual measure of paradise." -- GALLERY RING

 
 
 
 


CHRISTINE COLUMBO

 
 
 
 

MACY
Oil on linen -- 11 x 8 inches -- SOLD

"MACY commands attention with a centered and frontal close-up of a girl who emerges gradually from a misty and indistinct background.  This situation and the dark hair that behaves as a frame emphasizes the subject's smooth, bright skin and slightly mischievous expression that is so delicately and expertly delivered.  Sagacious and sensitive perception is necessary to capture the eyes in the precise moment of drifting so slightly away from the viewer's and to render a smile that cannot be described exactly as a smile.  The soft atmosphere summons the imagination and loosens the grip on the subject so she is free to leave at any moment in this dreamy and sterling painting." -- GALLERY RING

 
 
 
 


PAUL SUDMAN

 
 
 
 

LONE SKATER
Digital on metal -- 20 x 30 inches -- $295.00

"LONE SKATER is brilliant.  An inexplicable phenomenon distorts and shatters any semblance of reality until an entirely new condition emerges.  A staggering assortment of numerous, tiny fragments of various colours that overlap, blur and swarm together generates a striking mosaic of abundant and rich activity to discuss and admire.  The visual unrest is tempered and secured with a large expanse of green above that is answered with a simple blue and white base in a solid demonstration of artistry and proficiency in dividing and conquering space.  The sole discernible and familiar component left for detection is a pair of ice skates on skinny, green legs which supplies the narrative and allows a hint of a corresponding body to proceed in this extraordinary, opulent and gripping artwork." -- GALLERY RING
