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.

KellyannM-Headshot

“I use landscapes and urban landscapes as a journey and stage for the drama of light, air and movement. I attempt to see past the structured architecture into the otherworldly qualities of the landscape. I am intrigued by the way light plays on architecture, energizing and describing form. There is a mystery in the dynamics of light and atmosphere in contrast to the architectural structures.

There is emptiness and solitude in the spaces I paint; yet they have a quality of human presence through the atmosphere and illumination. In the recent years, I have been obsessed with the rooftops of cluttered Brooklyn and New York City spaces, where the architecture is piled and pushing upon each other. Currently the repeating forms of the satellite dishes and antennae that dominate many apartment rooftops are central to the visual rhythm in my paintings. Construction cranes and scaffolding also play a role in creating the rhythmic urban spaces. I have exaggerated and edited qualities from city life into dramatic compositions. The sky and the spaces between buildings are as significant as the buildings themselves. I am fascinated by the city’s night sky, which reflects the ever-present human interjection of light pollution.

During a recent stay in Southern France, Toulouse region I had access to the beautiful landscape, old and decaying buildings and by contrast, the modernized forms and structures of contemporary life. I painted primarily on site and in the open air. The small medieval villages and ancient farms inspired many paintings. In these works I depicted lush landscapes, claustrophobic village streets and dilapidated farms. There is a quirky relationship between the village tiled rooftops and the gritty ones of my Brooklyn spaces. Even in this beautiful and historic place there are television satellite dishes sprouting about.

My aim is to maintain an element of spontaneity and directness in the paint. A fluid and spontaneous quality in the every paint stroke is very important to me. I primarily work all prima and often plein air. I edit, emphasize and exaggerate structural forms from life observation. The process allows for idiosyncratic and unexpected painterly qualities to occur.”

Orna.Ben.Shoshan.Artist

Having an Orna Ben-Shoshan painting on your wall is like having a window to another dimension. Her artwork involves opening her consciousness and channeling images that come to her from a different realm of existence.

All of her paintings are completed in her mind before she transfers them onto the canvas. Her metaphysical work infuses deep spiritual experience with subtle humor. Orna Ben-Shoshan has been an autodidact artist for the past 30 years.

Her artwork was exhibited in numerous locations in the USA, Europe and Israel. Her Major motivation as a visual artist is to share her visions with others to expand their consciousness and inspire new ways of thinking.

Orna’s life-long interest in metaphysics and mysticism has led her to study the Kabala and alternative philosophies. She shares her wide and diverse knowledge in articles and short essays that were published in magazines worldwide alongside her paintings.

 

Americana Art Opening


“I would like to give a big shout out of thanks to the 500 artists, friends, guests and supporters of transFORM’s Art Gallery and custom cabinetry for making our February 5th, “Americana” Art Opening such a spectacular success.

The evening had a sense of camaraderie and warmth on a cold winter night, both within our walls and at the adjoining 7th Floor showrooms. It’s safe to say this collection of artists has taken the Gallery to the next level by showing their exemplary use of color, imagery and technique. Their works have shown internationally and are recognized as great investments.
