What Does Sloth (From Goonies) & Obey Giant Propaganda Have in Common?

What does Sloth (From Goonies) & Obey Giant propaganda have in common?

Absolutely nothing, but that didn’t stop me from making a correlation when I conceived this piece in 2013.

Anyway,  “Philistine #1″ was sold and delivered to a collector with a rather robust sense of humor and I’m glad.

My Pictorial Depravity London Bound Once Again

March 3, 2014

Hello again,

My pictorial depravity has long been identified with by London art collectors.  There is quite a bit of my work hanging in British homes and probably offices to.  This makes me smile.  Anyway, a couple of watercolors from 2013 have been spoken for and will be in route to London directly.  This makes me happy to.

Art You Want To Eat

February 6, 2014

Hello again,

I haven’t been painting much lately but I have been creating collage studies for possible upcoming pieces of art. These studies are made entirely of areas of previously completed watercolors, oil paintings & prints. I’m not sure what medium “Incubus” & “Succubus” will take yet. Oil painting along with utilizing some printmaking skills would be ideal. It will be interesting to see how the collage pieces translate into different media.

Also, I’ve been randomly offering  up older watercolors, mixed media pieces and prints  “On Sale” at discounted prices, so keep an eye on my Bigcartel Store.  To see what doozies I’m offering this week click

Jamie Winn

January 31, 2014

Hello again,

I’m back with another artist feature.  This time, it’s Jamie Winn.  Jamie contacted me prior to a group show we were both involved in down in Houston.  She’s sharp and quick with witty comebacks and her art is easy on the eyes.  Read about Jamie Winn and check out her work below.

Jamie Winn was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and has been traveling the country learning from and working with any type of artist she managed to befriend along the way. She has worked primarily as a tattoo artist for the last ten years, and is currently working in Huntsville, Texas at F.N Classy Studios. However, Jamie can be found dabbling in watercolor, oils or even spray paint at any given time. Lately she has been busy creating lamps made from reclaimed lighting fixtures, wood, and various other mixed medias. Her works greatly reflect her career in traditional tattooing and it’s style, but also ventures into the slightly macabre; reminding us just how strange the world can be.

Artist Feature: Brett Amory

January 24, 2014

Hello again,

I’ve enjoyed Brett Amory’s work ever since I first stumbled across it three or four years ago.  There’s a certain quite confidence about his paintings that I love.  They’re very atmospheric and I find myself wondering what his subjects could be thinking what their destinations may be.   Over the last year I’ve had a few brief online chats with Brett.  Not only is he a great painter, but he seems like a really nice thoughtful guy as well.  I’ve recently been corresponding again with Brett about the beginnings of his “Waiting” series and his upcoming show at Lazarides which is sure to be a success.

ckirk,

“How did the initial idea spark  for your ongoing  series “Waiting”?  Was it a sudden realization of what you wanted to paint or did it have to be worked out over time?”

Brett Amory,

“I started the ‘Waiting’ series in 2000. I was working in Emeryville and living in San Francisco so I was commuting via Bart. I became really interested in how people looked in the morning especially on Monday after the weekend. I noticed how everyone seemed to be somewhere else, not at all in the present. I also started noticing a disconnect. The Bart would be packed shoulder to shoulder but there would be no communication and minimal eye contact. Back then the series was all about Bart and I was taking a more traditional approach to painting. It was more paint what I see or what the photograph detailed. I stopped the series in 2003 and experimented with a few different types of mediums and styles of painting.I came back to the series in 2007 but the idea of waiting changed. The people ceased to be exclusively travelers, and I began to emphasize figures selected from anonymous snapshots of city streets. I started pairing down the image to key elements of the compositions to provide an outward echo of the inner states of the figures.  Although the experience of waiting is still there, the perception of it has changed from one of mundane task to one leavened with transcendence.”

Exhibition

Brett Amory: Twenty-Four In London

Friday 7th of March 2014 to Thursday 10th of April 2014

Lazarides Rathbone brings you Twenty-Four in London, the first solo show by Brett Amory at our flagship gallery. 

Following the success of his previous solo exhibitions in San Francisco and New York City, Brett continues his exploration of his wildly popular Waiting series. Traversing the nation’s capital by bicycle, the artist takes us on a 24-hour journey of the city’s noteworthy sites from historical landmarks to those places most relevant to the inhabitants of the Big Smoke.

This latest series of work gives his audience an intimate glimpse of London through the eyes of one of America’s most exciting young artists.

Until next time,
