MARIA OROZCO

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? MO: Brutalist, because my visual and conceptual references go back to brutalist architecture.  CH.89: Where do you draw your inspiration from? MO: Brutalist architecture and HardEdge. CH.89: Can you talk a little bit about what your […]

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 […]

ASHLEY LUSIETTO 

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? AL: Lucid dreaming – my work develops through autobiography and magical realism.

GUILAINE JEANPIERRE

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? GJ: For a long time, I didn’t really know how I would describe my work, but it is definitely figurative work that tends to be surrealist and dreamy. CH.89: Where do you draw your inspiration from? […]

ALEX JONES

CH.89: Where do you draw your inspiration […]

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, […]

GABRIELLA CARBONI

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? GC: My work could be categorized as abstraction (or more specifically: biomorphism). Biomorphic art and design focuses on shapes, forms, and patterns that are found in nature and animals. I currently work with drawing, painting, and […]

TIM FAWCETT

CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why? TF: It’s human nature I guess to need to categorize everything. I’m so influenced by just about every category of visual art to some degree or another and am constantly evolving my process and I suppose […]
