Fred Tomaselli, 1956 ~ A beautiful virus


Fred Tomaselli is an American painter. He is best known for his highly detailed paintings on wood panels, combining an array of unorthodox materials suspended in a thick layer of clear, epoxy resin. Tomaselli's paintings include medicinal herbs, prescription pills and hallucinogenic plants alongside images cut from books and magazines: flowers, birds, butterflies, arms, legs and noses, which are combined into dazzling patterns that spread over the surface of the painting like a beautiful virus or growth. He uses an explosion of color and combines it with a basis in art history. His style usually involves collage, painting, and/or glazing. He seals the collages in resin after gluing them down and going over them with different varnishes.

http://www.tuttartpitturasculturapoesiamusica.com/2012/12/Theo-Van-Rysselberghe.html

Théo Van Rysselberghe ~ Pointillist painter

Théo (Théophile) van Rysselberghe [1862-1926] was an Belgian painter, who played a pivotal role in the European art scene at the turn of the century.
His famous portrait of Alice Sèthe, 1888 in blue and gold would become a turning point in his life. This time he used merely points in the portrait. She would later marry the sculptor Paul Dubois. Her sister, Maria Sèthe, also a model of van Rysselberghe, would marry the renowned Art Nouveau architect Henry Van de Velde. In that period he made many Neo-impressionistic portraits, such as the portrait of his wife Maria and their daughter Elisabeth. He had married Marie Monnom in 1889. They went on their honeymoon to the south of England and then to Brittany. This would also result in a number of Neo-impressionistic paintings. In Paris he had a meeting with Theo Van Gogh and managed thus to invite Vincent Van Gogh to the next exhibition in Brussels. That is where Van Gogh sold Vigne Rouge in Montmajour to Anna Boch, the only painting he ever sold.

Théo Van Rysselberghe

Théo van Rysselberghe [1862-1926] è stato un pittore Belga. Fu' uno dei maggiori rappresentanti del Puntinismo in Belgio. Terminati gli studi all'Accademia di Belle arti di Gand e di Bruxelles sotto la direzione di Jean-François Portaels, Théo, nel 1881 partecipò per la prima volta ad una mostra al Salon di Bruxelles. Due anni dopo, assieme all'amico Octave Maus, fu uno dei fondatori del gruppo d'avanguardia "Les Vingt". Nel 1887 scoprì le opere di Georges Seurat e si appassionò alla tecnica divisionista, ma, alla fine del secolo, sostituì il puntinismo dei suoi quadri con delle composizioni a tocco più ampio, con larghe strisce allungate di colore. Come Seurat e Signac dipinse molti paesaggi marini e anche incisioni, sebbene queste ultime siano assai meno note.

Nasreddine Dinet ~ Orientalist painter

Nasreddine Dinet, born as Alphonse-Étienne Dinet [1861-1929] was a French orientalist painter.
Compared to modernist painters such as Henri Matisse, who also visited northern Africa in the first decade of the 20th century, Dinet's paintings are extremely conservative. They are highly mimetic, indeed ethnographic, in their treatment of their subject. Dinet's understanding of Arab culture and language set him apart from other orientalist artists. Surprisingly, he was able to find nude models in rural Algeria. Before 1900, most of his works could be characterized as "anecdotal genre scenes". As he became more interested in Islam, he began to paint religious subjects more often. He was active in translating Arabic literature into French, publishing a translation of a 13th-century Arab epic poem by Antarah ibn Shaddad in 1898.

Tony Chow ~ The Passion

Born in Taipei, Tawain in 1974, Tony Chow, Chinese painter, was obvious that he showed an appreciation for the masters. At the age of 11, Tony’s interest sprang a dedication to express his talents on canvas as well as an understanding to the motives behind such masterpieces. Tony came to the United Stated in 1995. He received a B.A. in Fine Art from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California in 2000. From here, his interest and talents developed into a unique style all his own. Tony’s subjects include contemporary women and a careful depiction of the sculptures of masters. Perhaps there is an intentional portrayal of a unique relationship between these sculptures and the subject. It’s as if time has paused to glance at his bold strokes, with an intriguing blend of past and present. Through his tedious process of layers and textures filled with balance and color, his canvas come together with a beautiful multi-layered surface that depicts emotion from all who view his work.
