(Image: Peter Worsley, Picnic, 2009, Oil on canvas, 16 x 20 x 0,5 inches; © Peter Worsley)   Peter Worsley (b. 1929, London, England) I see myself as kind of an old soul and a romantic at heart. The subjects I choose to paint have some sort of nostalgic calling - ordinary people doing everyday things at interesting places. Often the result reflects the human comedy. Each painting begins with a careful study of it's composition. Then, through a evolutionary process, often with moments of spontan... [more]

(Image: Matthew Felix Sun, Lilies, 2010, Oil on Canvas, 20 x 24 inches; © Matthew Felix Sun) Matthew Felix Sun (b. China) "What is art about? More precisely, what are my paintings about? I have struggled with this question ever since I started to paint. Having copied famous artists' work, made many still life and figure studies, and having painted for the simple sensual thrill of presenting beauty or ugliness, I am left with the certainty that art is much broader and deeper than these technic...

  (Image: Eun Young Yun, dancer, 2012 Oil on Canvas, 4 X 12 X 1 Inches; © Eun Young Yun)   Eun Young Yun (b. 1968, Bussan, South Korea) When I was a little, I felt some inspiration from old masterpiece paintings such as Rembrandt. I love classical painting. Tradition contains long history about true story and personal perception. It very much fascinates me. Since then, I dreamed to be a great figurative artist like them.

Bronx, NY, USA) I am engaged in the converging vectors of art and science, but receive added inspiration from kabbalah teachings & meditation and try to create visual forms (in paintings on canvas but also video art) conducive to mystical experience and self-transformation. I like to regard myself as an "emerging" artist creating art wi... [more]

(Image: Mark Minier,  A Wintering Tree,  2010, oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches; © Mark Minier)   Mark Minier (b. 1971, Grand Rapids, MI) It is hard for me to describe my painting process.  I can, but I don't plan out a lot of my work.  I regurgitate it.  My work is at it's best when it is not forced-out but permitted to come forth.  I do what comes naturally and develop what I see.  With most pieces I find an interpretation of what I was experiencing and/or expressing a while later.  I believe...

Granada Hills, CA) Art is the truth we perhaps will never see, the expression of what could be and the evidence that no one wishes to see. Art is personal yet lies to us, comforts and then betrays us. Art is whatever you see it to be and will then define the blind from the visionary. I have made the choice to paint, document and use visual ex... [more]
