Daniel Uytterhaeghe The artist paints landscapes. In particular city landscapes. And they are beautiful. The people in them are part of the city. He doesn’t tell stories as much as describe the scene. And, in many works, the scene is cars, roads, buildings, people. And motion. I like his work. I wouldn’t like to spell his name. And I have no idea how to pronounce it.

Eric Whitacre is the rock star of the choral world. His innovative “virtual choir” is a phenomenon, watched by millions online. And this lovely piece, “Lux Aurumque,” is perfect for the Christmas season.

The text is a Latin translation (by Charles Anthony Silvestri) of an English poem, “Light and Gold,” by Edward Esch:

calida gravisque
pura velut aurum
et canunt angeli
molliter modo natum.
warm and heavy
as pure gold,
and the angels sing softly
to the newborn babe.

Philip Marlow. His paintings are like out of focus photographs. Or a series of brightly lit balls. Like life was floating on the surface of reality. Almost faeire like. I love  his work. It has a  spiritual quality about it. As if ordinary life were lit up.

Super Future Kid. The work is fun. In  a random sort of way. There is a lot of personality in the work. Even wit. But it is a mask. Like the name of the artist (or s). Anonymity comes at a price. Anonymity.

I have blogged on this artist several times. Her signature/style is the same for all of her work. And I never tire of it. Something very satisfying about each piece. Takahiro Kimura.

This artist can draw. These are fine sketches. They’re taken from films. What I like about them is the story. You’re right into something that is going on. And the intimacy. Just lovely to look at. Marie Harnett.

Obsession. And emptyness. Damien Loeb. When I look at his work I see the rooms empty of the central figure. The nude woman is not there. She is a thought. To fill a terrible void. A nothingness.
