Adam S. Doyle

Adam S. Doyle (previously) creates sweeping monochromatic animals, painting creatures that jump, fly, and swim from his simplified brushstrokes. Doyle’s environmental details are limited, instead focusing on the subject which takes up the majority of the painting’s frame. His howling wolves and pensive rabbits have an illustrative quality to their compensation, something that may stem from his interest in interpreting narratives for book covers, greeting cards, and show posters.

Doyle doesn’t attempt to mask his brushstrokes, but rather lets them evolve organically. He explains that his work always begins with his love of the magic of creation, transforming a blank surface into a living thing. “This act has been with mankind forever and yet never ceases to be awe-inspiring,” said Doyle. “I always want my marks to be visible, to keep this sense of wonder present. I’m committed to making images that speak truth to power, that provide space to breathe, and that use simple forms to reveal and make accessible the heart of stories.”

I’m not sure about this work. Has a bit of the ‘art class’ about it.

Laurie Lipton’s work is an assault on conventional sensibilities. Wonderfully crafted, this Brueghelish look at the modern world will no doubt enlist a following from the comic book generation. But to an older generation her work is an attack. As if we were thrown back into the industrial revolution and forced to relive the days of plaque, the Ripper, and the Light Brigade.(Her personal sight is very slow to respond so you may have more luck goggling her name.)
