Bio PicBrooklyn based artist, S J Riley, focuses in on the details and movement of her subject. Her abstract photo-realism oil paintings evoke the viewer to both come closer and stand back to visually process her paintings. The subject matter is blown up or in movement to the point where the contents become hidden. The absence of hard lines and instead soft layered brushstrokes’ that bleed into one another give the surface a very abstract feel. Until the subject reveals itself and suddenly it’s realism.  

Riley approaches her composition with her deteriorating eyes, being severely near-sighted she mimics how she sees her world around her. Having to come very close to recognize the object while everything around it disappears and from a distance how objects just bleed into one another or produce movement. The final outcome is a feeling of larger than life.

Tracy-headshot

Artist Tracy Helgeson paints the classic subject of America’s rural culture and agricultural community, capturing an era once forgotten, yet preserved at the same time. There is a modern, otherworldly take on her subjects and locations.

Tracy explains it best, “In creating a painting, my intent is to capture an evocative feeling and an essence of a landscape, structure or person that I feel a connection to. The images that I choose usually have a basis in reality, but I often alter composition, color and light to more accurately express my feelings about how and what I see.

I truly appreciate the process of painting; the texture of the surfaces that I prepare, the richness of the colors and glazes that I choose, the softness of a brush, the smell of the paint, medium and solvent and the excitement of creating an image.”
