Eva's creativity propels her on a journey of love and devastation from Mexico City to Augusta, Georgia, all the while being hunted by an ambitious psychopath bent on her destruction. This thriller involves pro golf athletes, art business insiders, and a savvy real estate tycoon, as lives from varying backgrounds intersect to influence each other. As the years go by, alliances are formed, but who can be trusted in the long run? The final battle between good and evil is a twist-and-turn hairpin ride occurring on and off the golf course during the famed Masters Tournament, and destruction is only a knife blade away. This stand-alone thriller is from Mark Sublette, best known for his ongoing Charles Bloom Murder Mystery art series set in the Southwest.</span></p> <div style="color: #000000; font-size: 14pt; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">$24.95 Hardcover</span></div> <div style="color: #000000; font-size: 14pt; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Also available on eBooks</span></div> <div style="color: #000000; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">&nbsp;</span></div> <div style="color: #000000; font-size: 16pt; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>To order or inquire:</strong></span></div> <div style="color: #000000; font-size: 16pt; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">1-800-422-9382 or 520-722-7798 or <a style="color: blue; text-decoration: underline;" href="" rel="nofollow" shape="rect" target="_blank"></a></span></div> Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:15:43 +0000 Bernardo Torrens - EVOKE Contemporary - August 28th - September 19th <p><span style="font-family: Arial;">Bernardo Torrens&rsquo;s solo exhibition entitled &ldquo;Figurativo&rdquo; will take place at EVOKE Contemporary with a focus on the figure. It is a first solo exhibition for this leading photorealist painter from Spain who was recently featured at the Museo de Bellas Artes in Bilbao.&nbsp; Each painting features one of several models that are recurring in the artist&rsquo;s work. &nbsp;Each composition is uniquely composed and intricately painted focusing solely on the personality of the model and nostalgic scenes of summer.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: Arial;">Torrens&rsquo;s&nbsp;&ldquo;Sandra in Pool&rdquo; is one of the six large-scale paintings, which is a burst of color and a refreshing surprise from an artist that typically works in monochromatic themes. The model is a Spanish actress lounging topless, with her arms spread, in a backyard pool. As her hair is pulled away under a swim cap, her handsome face is revealed and we are confronted with her bold and natural beauty. The linear cool blue tiles of the pool contrast her strong, lean, and tan arms. Her skin appears as soft as the sunlight that falls on her, evoking a subtle chiaroscuro that highlights each of the droplets of water on the swimmer. Here Torrens exposes not only his model but also his extraordinary talent.</span></p> <p>Torrens lives and works in Madrid, Spain. He has had several solo exhibitions there as well as in Milan, Italy and other major cities. Bernardo Torrens&rsquo;s work was recently featured in the New Orleans Museum of Art. In addition, his work was featured in traveling museum exhibitions such as Hyperrealism 1962 &ndash; 2012 (2013 &ndash; Present, Kunsthalle Tuebingen, Germany, Museo Thyssen Bornemisza, Madrid, Spain, Saarland Museum, Saarbreucken, Germany, and now at the Museum of Fine Arts, Bilbao, Spain) as well as Photorealism Revisited (2014 at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Oklahoma City, OK and the Butler Museum of American Art, Youngstown, OH). He has also worked on commission to produce portraits of notable Spanish dignitaries such as the former Presidents of the Spanish Congress of Deputies, Felix Pons and Jose Bono. &nbsp;</p> <p>The exhibition runs thru September 19th.&nbsp;</p> <p>About EVOKE Contemporary
