"Brickman's awe-inspiring artwork was created by painting paper with watercolors, then cutting, sculpting and gluing the individual pieces of each collage. The result is an amazing feast of color and texture that brings the creatures to life..."

Terry’s mixed-media paintings ask the deep questions: What is woman? What is man? Hauptman responds by seeking harmonies/dark chambers, and dissonances, bridging cultures and braiding traditions. Envisioning her work is to feel the rhythmic contours of ecstatic dance, hear the figurative chorus of the world’s indigenous voice and to bask in the turquoise, purple and gold emanations of color from a deep resonant black ground. Hauptman’s love of intertwined spirals and knots, the rhythmic interlinking of curves amidst the play of contraries set the scrolls in motion. These painted Songline Scrolls break traditional boundaries by having figures dance through the dimension of the paper; their visual music representing one continuous glyph.

My art is a process of continual change and development. It speaks to a synthesis of intimate spaces and structural forms.
The compositions are both literal and abstract, stepping outside the realms of trend and sensationalism.
The work embraces a sense of past and present, stillness and motion, the remembered and forgotten.
The accomplished paintings of Evan Wilson imbue everyday reality with a heightened sense of elegance and grace. His varied subjects–including engaging portraits, dazzling floral still lifes, genteel interiors, and vibrant genre scenes–transcribe the world into something slightly rarified, a realm in which beauty reigns supreme. For nearly twenty-five years, Wilson has worked as a professional artist in the venerable realist tradition, evolving a painting style that fuses the keen observational clarity of John Singleton Copley with the dash and spirit of John Singer Sargent. His best works capture the present as they acknowledge the past, and underscore the enduring power of realism in skilled and dedicated hands.
