Nina Chanel Abney, a New York based painter, creates these amazingly bold, and politically charged pieces of work. Incredibly blunt with a mix of clever symbolism (such as rubber gloves to represent “dirty work.”)

Jeremy Geddes

Jeremy Geddes
is an incredibly cinematic painter. His realistically painted images offer an overwhelming amount of drama through the use of not just aesthetic composition and image, but through concept as well. His recent series feature an astronaut exploring Earth. It’s creatures, buildings, landscapes, etc. Hinting towards the idea of the human alienation within our own environment.

London based artist Nathan James argues the idea that mass media and materialism can deliver the kind of leisure and happiness it promises but at the expense of one’s humanity. His photo based paintings are of young, trend-oriented people who are interrupted with strips of neon, cuts, graphics, typography, etc.

I am really enjoying painter Saeko Takagi’s recent series of portraits. The way she allowed her paints to move around, and the eyes on some of these guys goes right through you.

Jenny Saville

Oxford, England based artist Jenny Saville, is frightening in how she is so good in what she does. Her paintings always make me feel uncomfortable, and in that way, seduced as well. She is mostly known for her paintings of large, fleshy women that quite often appear similar to landscapes or a huge slab of meat. It’s a desire of mine to one day see her work in person. Amir has, and apparently photographic records of her work does not do it justice.

I am very excited about today’s blog posts as I will be writing about a few of my most favorite artists. The first of them being San Francisco based painter, Jennifer Poon. Jennifer creates a fragile and fragmented world that which communicates her personal experiences, race, social identity, sexuality, etc. Her paintings always has a way of having me reflect on my relationship to the world and those around me.

We are really enjoying Nolan Hendrickson’s recent work. They remind me of the dirty side of city life – but through a colorful, and naive window. The bold colors remind me of electrical signs that pollute the city at night. But the style of which Nolan approaches these paintings are so fun and dreamlike that it feels like I am experiencing these environments as a child.

Jean-Pierre Roy

Jean-Pierre Roy’s insanely gorgeous luminescent paintings might just combine all of my favorite topics. Painted like translucent homages to Romantic pastoralism, they appear to instead catalog mystical scenes of revelation, post-2012 apocalypse. Grand, cinematic, magical, laced with the alien race, these glowing, transcendent Titian-esque tableaus are haunting and inspiring all at once.

If you’re in NYC, his exhibition at Rare Gallery opens Sept. 9 and runs until October 7. I wish I could see these in person!
