(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 spon... [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 technical ac...

  (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. So, I studied Fine Arts at Kyong Song University in Korea and specializ... [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 w...

Lyon, France) My work explores the relationship between various dichotomies – formality and random play, structure and spontaneity, control and fluidity, calmness and exuberance.  I regard these as fundamental formal issues in contemporary abstract painting, and they provide a framework for personal expression. I have developed a process that employs diverse methods of mar... [more]

I employ images as an object of identity for the viewers, forging a connection with the subjects. Figures in the scenes become stand-ins for the observer offering them a voyeuristic window to another life. The imperfections and inc... [more]

I also draw inspiration from the art of the past, and so many other sources including poetry, music, cinema, and the materials themselves. I get excited about the physical, tactile possibilities of oil paint, and... [more]

Working exclusively from archive photos found in books, newspapers and the internet, his paintings place familiar scenes out of context, rendering their meaning as null and alien, misfit within collective consciousness. Through the act of painting, Li replicates the conceptual processes of photographic repro... [more]

Heriberto Mora: On Our Miami Watchlist

(Image: Heriberto Mora, La Maga, Oil on Canvas, 30 x 24 in., 2011; © Heriberto Mora) Heriberto Mora (b. 1965, Havana, Cuba) The central theme of Mora’s moving studies is the human being, its ongoing spiritual quest and its interaction with the environment. Mora’s paintings are imaginative explorations of the dialogue between two languages of the infinite: space and numbers. Paradoxically, they are often set in enclosed areas which nonetheless appear to extend to the horizon and beyond... [more]
