FEIPEL BECHAMEIL

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? FB: We always try to escape categorizations of our artwork, and believe we are always evolving in our practice. The style, aesthetics and reflections around it are always moving, changing and developing. Although there is a […]

LORNA ROBERTSON

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? LR: I would say I fall into the abstract and semi abstract category of oil painting. My most pure abstract work comes out when I am representing sound and rhythm visually in a painting, and for […]

DAVID OLESKI

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why?  DO: I have two bodies of work. Initially I painted large contemporary still-life paintings, so the category might be “representational impressionist still life oil paintings”, but in the past 7 years I have transitioned into a […]

LIA LIAO

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? LL: I would describe my style as rational and logical, but at the same time emotional.

ALEX JONES

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? AJ: I guess I’m a painter as I primarily use paint, but the construction of the work feels much more sculptural. The works are less painted and more assembled. CH.89: Where do you draw your inspiration […]

ANDREA OERTER

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? AO: My style is definitely influenced by my digital approach, using flat shapes of color and very few textures and shadows. But with a hint of a cartoon influence, using black line work here and there […]

DAWN CHANDLER

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? DC: “Landscape Expressionism.” In my paintings, I merge traditional representational imagery with passages of abstraction (and sometimes text) to create unique, deeply personal visual expressions of the landscape. CH.89: Where do you draw your inspiration from? […]

ZANE PRATER

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? ZP: It has been described as ‘dark art nouveau,’ which I quite like. I have drawn much inspiration from the art nouveau movement over the years but also a lot from urban art movements, like graffiti, […]
