Pauline Smith

«The work of Pauline Smith is centered on making paintings that originate from a personal experience of place, space, scene, and visual event, mediating a diverse range of simultaneous sensations. The paintings become improvised unfoldings of shifting possibility, where the sensory experience is the subject – how something is as opposed to what it is. The translation into paint of these often conflicting stimuli is the key question that the artist returns to in her creative practice.
Pauline Smith also works in a variety of other media that include sound, music, and performance.»

Tony Feher - Minimalist Compositions & Displays of Three Dimensional Abstraction

«Tony Feher (1956 – June 24, 2016) was an American sculptor.
Feher's sculptural installations—part hobo altar, part curio cabinet, part TSA contraband table—often belie a nuanced understanding of the emotional power of the quotidian object, while displaying, at times, a quality of manic ranging.[4] His signature material, the brightly colored plastic beverage container, found its way into minimalist compositions as well as exuberant displays of three dimensional abstraction. His pieces offer quiet encounters, suggesting the ways an individual might invest discarded bits of flotsam—vacant consumer packaging, toys and novelties—with deep personal meaning.[5] Feher's work was said to be refreshingly direct and permissive; he wasn't overly concerned with its representational character or intellectual ambition. Critic Wayne Koestenbaum stated that ....»

Dominick Di Meo

«Dominick Di Meo (b. 1927, Niagara Falls, NY) spent some of his childhood in a polio ward, which gave him a uniquely hellish reservoir of images to draw on as a young Monster.Early personages were painted in swirls of poured enamel, and experimenting with materials was a sacred part of art making to Di Meo; frottage, assemblage, bronze, and plastic wood were important tools and techniques.
Dismayed by the fact that Di Meo had never visited his ancestral lands, Leon Golub organized a group of collectors to pitch in and send him to Italy in 1961–63.
“Tàpies knocked me out with his thick paint and vinyl,” says Di Meo. “Redon was a big influence, as were the American primitives, like Morris Hirshfield, as well as Eldzier Cortor and Julio de Diego, two earlier Chicagoans who used areas of relief in their paintings.”

Philip Hyde - Landscape Photographer

«Philip Jean Hyde (1921-2006)
Born in San Francisco in 1921, Philip Hyde was a pioneer of the West Coast landscape tradition, he made his first back country fine art landscape photograph in 1942. His photographs helped protect such national treasures as the Grand Canyon, Dinosaur National Monument, Denali, Tongass National Forest, Canyonlands, the Coast Redwoods, Point Reyes, King’s Canyon, the North Cascades, Oregon Cascades, High Sierra Wilderness, Big Sur, the Wind River Range, Islands off Puerto Rico and many others. Philip Hyde trained under Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Minor White, Imogen Cunningham, Dorothea Lange, Lisette Model and other definers of the medium at the California School of Fine Arts, now the San Francisco Art Institute. Because of the historical significance of his work, a common misconception is that Philip Hyde was a photographer of a bygone era. In reality, he photographed for 58 years until he was 79 years old, into the new millennium.»

Stanley Boxer - Abstract Painting

Stanley Boxer (1926-May 8, 2000) was an American artist best known for thickly painted abstract works of art. He was also an accomplished sculptor and printmaker.
Boxer was born in New York City, and began his formal education after World War II, when he left the Navy and studied at the Art Students League of New York. He drew, painted, made prints, and sculpted. His work was recognized by art critic Clement Greenberg, who categorized him as a color field painter, a designation which Boxer rejected. Art critic Grace Glueck wrote «Never part of a movement or trend, though obviously steeped in the language of Modernism, the abstract painter Stanley Boxer was a superb manipulator of surfaces, intensely bonding texture and color.»

Ernst Wilhelm Nay - Art Informel

Ernst Wilhelm Nay was a German painter known for his association with the Art Informel movement and post-World War II artists such as Karel Appel, Jean Dubuffet, and Alberto Burri. Despite working exclusively in abstraction, Nay’s distinctive Expressionistic use of color and textile-like patterning show the influence of representational painters like Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and the Henri Matisse. Born on June 1, 1911 in Berlin, Germany, he went on to study under Karl Hofer at the Berlin Art Academy. Nay was on track for a successful career in Germany, until the Nazi regime labeled his work as Degenerate, thereby making it illegal for him to show or even produce artworks. After being conscripted into the Nazi army, the artist served in France where he was able to secretly paint in a friend’s sculpture studio. It was not until a decade after the war with his participation in the 1956 Venice Biennale that Nay made a breakthrough into the international art scene.
