Heinz Rabbow, 1940 | Portrait painter





Heinz Rabbow, born in Berlin, is a painter to watch, as his star is rising swiftly on the international arts scene. Rabbow had his first Canadian exhibition at Galerie Dominion in October of 2005, after having completed sold out shows in Munich, Germany and at the world’s leading international art fair in Basel, Switzerland.
He recreates the ancient method of “grisaille” by painting solely in monochrome shades of neutral color using tempera paint. All at once, his wraithlike subjects seem ordinary yet perplexingly celestial. He believes that hair detracts from the smoothly pristine facial features, thus caps and hats are used to keep the viewer’s eye focused upon the subject.

Debra Houston | Abstract Palette Knife painter





Debra J. Houston - Inspired by the simplicity of every day scenes, I work to bring those items to their extreme through an expression of dramatic color and exaggerated light. Living in the Pacific Northwest, I’m surrounded by natural beauty but the depiction of landscapes and street scenes comes from an interpreted existence rather that precise physical locations.
When beginning a painting, I allow the paint and colors to move me. I don’t typically have a carefully mapped out plan for each piece, but rather just an idea or focal point that develops throughout the creation. An emotional interest is the true goal in my work. Creating a mood, reflection, wonder…. something which allows you to escape each and every time you take it in.

Leonardo da Vinci | Il Trattato della Pittura | Parte seconda



Trattato della Pittura* - Parte seconda

41. Del primo principio della scienza della pittura.
Il principio della scienza della pittura è il punto, il secondo è la linea, il terzo è la superficie, il quarto è il corpo che si veste di tal superficie; e questo è quanto a quello che si finge, cioè esso corpo che si finge, perché invero la pittura non si estende piú oltre che la superficie, per la quale si finge il corpo figura di qualunque cosa evidente.



Laura Knight | The Nuremberg Trial, 1946



At the end of the war Dame Laura Knight (1877-1970) proposed to the War Artists' Advisory Committee the Nuremberg war crimes trials as a subject. The Committee agreed and Dame Laura Knight went to Germany in January 1946 and spent three months observing the trials from inside the courtroom. The result was the large oil painting, The Nuremberg Trial.
This painting departs from the realism of her earlier wartime paintings, in that whilst realistically depicting the Nazi war criminals sitting in the dock during their trial, the rear and side walls of the courtroom are missing to reveal a ruined city, partially in flames.
