Erqi Luo

31 01 2014

Erqi Luo of China has used beautiful colours and dark/light to give his work a 3 d feel. Or at least a notion of relief. He has a very nice feel for the medium. But the one thing that pops out at me is that they are not political. I suppose we can guess the reason why.

Andreas Richter

His portraits seem cool. His landscapes are filled with metaphors. A very complicated artist. Everything is  a struggle.

Bernard Buffet

30 01 2014

His work is edgy, sardonic, political and at times funny. Even his style seems to be a send up. His range is huge but I must confess that I find some of his work… bourgeois. I might find it in my dentist’s office.

Rainer Augur

His stories are wonderful. Colours are vibrant. Listed at being a German artist but his work looks like it was painted in an American city, or perhaps Toronto.

I felt whimsical.

He has a hodgepodge of styles. All interesting. Every piece is a story. Some easily accessible. Others a maze.

Michael Parkes

Michael Parkes’ work is obviously beautiful and well crafted. And I’m tempted to say something negative. Just can’t come up with anything. Fantasy literature does not interest me at all. But Parkes’ art is lovely.

Sculptural paintings. Whisps. Or clouds. Lovely to look at. And loot for ideas.

Afnulf Rainer

27 01 2014

A distinct style. Much of his work is a demolition or defacing of the photographic/painting image. What this proves I am not sure.
