Hope Made Visible
2020 brought a wave of unexpected circumstances, yet I have never been more certain that artists, no matter, will prevail through all extremes. With days on end of confinement, the visual culture immediately got to work with virtual exhibitions, online art fairs, zoomed studio visits, live Instagram programing, and numerous auctions for charity. An affirmation of visual culture’s ability to rise above all circumstances and stay ahead of the current, impacting those who view it in ways only art can do.
With an effort to keep up the positive momentum, our featured artists have created small paintings, replete with visual impact and a perfect way to add a piece to your collection. From luminous paintings filled with perceptual wonder to energetic brush work that acts as a conduit of pure emotion, each piece shown provides a threshold of experience, opening the doors to insight and initiating wonder.
I look forward to sharing the work of artists who have changed the way I see. My hope is that through my words, you will see the adoration I have for the work and feel the same excitement. I want you to trust the act of perception that art initiates and take the time to process it. Most of all, I want you to discover the fascinating and extraordinary personal shift that art provides to those who take the time to witness it.
"There's a place beyond words where experience first occurs to which I always want to return."
Jerzy Kosinski, The Painted Bird
