Charles Blackman - Alice in Wonderland

«Charles Blackman is an Australian painter known for works that incorporate scenes from Alice in Wonderland such as his Feet Beneath the Table (1956). In both his Schoolgirl and Alice series, Blackman conveys narrative events from his character’s point of view, by using exaggerated angles and strong directional light. “The artist’s job is to discover new meaning in his life,” he has said. Born on August 12, 1928 in Sydney, Australia, Blackman was largely self-taught, and became an illustrator at the Sun newspaper before moving to Melbourne in the mid-1940s. Following the move, Blackman befriended fellow artists Joy Hester, John Perceval, and Laurence Hope, and gained the support of the art critic and patron John Reed. In 1959, Blackman collaborated with a number of figurative artists, including John Brack, Arthur Boyd, and Robert Dickerson to create The Antipodeans group, which railed against Australian artists adopting American Abstract Expressionism and other non-figurative styles. He went on to receive the Order of the British Empire and continues to live and work in Sydney, Australia. Today, the artist’s works are held in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Tate Gallery in London, among others.»

Robert Venosa - Visionary Art and Psychedelic Surrealism

Robert Venosa (January 21, 1936 – August 9, 2011) was an American artist who resided in Boulder, Colorado, USA. He studied with what are termed the New Masters. His artworks reside in collections around the world
«Robert Venosa studied painting technique with Mati Klarwein in New York, andErnst Fuchs in Vienna, both of whom are proponents of the Misch Technique (alsoknown as the Master's Technique) discovered by the seventeenth-century Flemishmasters Hubert and Jan Van Eyck, which utilizes the system of painting in tempera and oil glazes.This technique is perfect for painting the crystalline worlds that Venosa envisions: Light goes through the surface oil glazes, bounces off the white tempera underpainting and comes back out hitting the eye with the illusion of transparent depth.As with most artists, Venosa took elements of what Fuchs and Klarwein taught and added his own personal touch to arrive at a style — ever evolving — the uniqueness of which is evident in the following catalog of his work.»

John Perceval - Australian Fine Art

“An early influence on Perceval was Arnold Shore, who he met as a teenager and was interested in the heavily laden brush of unmixed colour used by Van Gogh. Other notable influences are Bosch, Brueghel, Tintoretto, El Greco, Rembrandt, Hogarth and Blake and as with many artists a lot of the work has reference to personal and childhood experience. Perceval covers most genres; his work includes landscapes, such as the Williamstown Series, religious and irreverent themes and some portraiture. His best periods are the forties and fifties when his paintings included The Nightmare and Mask Series, master-pieces like Negroes at Night, 1944, and Woman Pushing a Boy with Polio, 1943 where he uses repetitive brush strokes with each stroke laid side by side as seen in work by some of the Fauves. In the fifties, Perceval painted the Gaffney Creek Landscapes and the humorous Goat in a Cabbage Patch, 1956 where he uses many different textures of brushstroke as well as the drip application in quite illogical colours, which enhances surface quality.”

In 1956, he completed a program in sculpture in the Academy of Fine Arts in Xawery Dunikowski.His first solo exhibition was in 1958 in the Kraków House of Artists, where he presented the sculptures: 'Lullaby', 'The Sun', 'Mother', 'Eve', 'anxiety', 'Idyll' made of plaster and reinforced concrete. His experience at this exhibition influenced his decision to halt the work he had been doing up to this point and along with it the traditional methods he learned from the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków.

Gillian Ayres - British Abstract Art

Gillian Ayres  (3 February 1930 – 11 April 2018) was an English painter. She is best known for abstract painting and printmaking using vibrant colours, which earned her a Turner Prize nomination. Gillian Ayres' early works are typically made with thin vinyl paint in a limited number of colours arranged in relatively simple forms, but later works in oil paint are more exuberant and very colourful, with a thick impasto being used.One of Ayres' early projects was a 1957 commission by architect Michael Greenwood to decorate the South Hampstead high school dining hall in north London. The murals, described as «the only true British contribution to American abstract expressionism», were quickly covered over with wallpaper before being rediscovered in 1983 in nearly perfect condition.
“The paintings are not a direct response to any particular moment or subject,” the artist has noted. “I don’t expect people to all have the same feeling when looking at them. Like looking at art, what inspires one is very personal, and sometimes one doesn’t know or doesn’t want to reveal where it comes from.” (G.Ayres)
