"The Eel" ~ John Tarahteeff.
Ominous clouds and skies tinted lime or translucent blue provide a backdrop to the mystery and intrigue of John Tarahteeff’s new work. Voluptuous females reference old masters, such as 17th century painter Titian. They are pictured playing occasional instruments, wading into shallow water. Tarahteeff continues to incorporate heavy texture in places to describe rocky ground, a raised line to express an unwinding ball of yarn or trees and leaves dramatically advancing out from the picture plane. The inclusion of these psychological, pictorial elements works to his advantage both intellectually and aesthetically.
John Tarahteeff’s paintings show great range, technical skill and seamless blending of intelligence and aesthetics. These new paintings have a story to tell, exposing in a spontaneous moment the whole of the tale. The work speaks in the deeply personal language of the artist.
In 1994 Tarahteeff graduated from the University of California, Davis with a B.S. in Landscape Architecture and a minor in Fine Art. The artist’s paintings were first introduced by Solomon Dubnick Gallery in 1998.

Child… by Joan Eardley.
Joan Eardley (1921-1963) is considered to be the most influential Scottish painter of her generation. Her depiction of both the rural and urban sides of Scotland is unique.
The dramatic seascapes of wild winter seas were painted out of doors on the shore or cliff top of Catterline, a small east coast fishing village south of Aberdeen. Eardley loved the ever changing light and weather of this rugged coastline and although many of these large paintings are of the same view they each capture the different mood of a bright evening sunset or a dark approaching storm.
She also portrayed the changing seasons in the fields around the village in heavily layered and textured paint even incorporating real flower heads into the surface.
In total contrast to this expression of nature she also spent periods of time in Glasgow depicting the children and tenements around her Townhead studio.
These powerful drawings and paintings capture the humanity of these poor but vibrant children. Eardley paints them as they are in secondhand clothes, eating a ‘piece’, playing in the street, the girls looking after their younger siblings. Their relationships and friendships are captured in Eardley’s unique style whether in a quick sketch or large painted composition.
Her death from cancer in 1963 at the age of only 42 robbed the world of an outstanding artist at the height of her achievement.

Benoit Mintiens - Type 1004 (2011)
One of the things people notice about the Series One is its distinctive way of measuring time. Instead of hands, these Ressence watches use four rotating dials equipped with applied white pointers, which rotate inside chapter rings.
In the fashion of the Biblical Ezekiel’s vision of wheels within wheels, there are dials within dials. The largest dial contains a pointer for the minutes, which sits as a comet’s tail underneath the hours sub-dial, and the pointer tracks along the watch face’s circumference. Inside the larger dial are one larger hour sub-dial and two smaller sub-dials.
Highly polished steel chapter rings respectively etched with the hours, seconds and 24-hour indications surround each sub-dial. As the dials move, the steel chapter rings remain in a stationary orientation and orbit around the face.

"Vase" ~ Daniel Cummings, 2013.
(Cummings work simply knocks me out! ~ EdBuzz).
Daniel Cummings (b. 1980) was a graduate of the MFA program at UCLA in sculpture, where he transferred his interest in 3-dimensional objects to painting. His abstract work plays with space and color in a variety of scales. The result: Deceptively simple, formal compositions that belie complex figure/ground relationships.
