Casting Shadows
Jeff Bellerose
9x12 P.B.
148 pgs.
$40.00
1-60052-049-9

Description - In his painting, Jeff Bellerose successfully bridges the gap between photo realism and traditional realism as we know it. He outlines his objects with the precision of the former; yet closely observed, his surfaces reveal barely discernible brush strokes or semi-opaque washes usually missing in the canvasses of a true photo realist.

Description - Over the last several years I have departed from the tradition of seascape painting and zoomed in on the water itself.

$30.00
1-60052-013-8
museum website

Description - The way light falls over our beautiful Bay Area, how our seeing distorts scale and perspective, and the way the human body carries emotions were painted with the dynamic techniques of abstraction. These bold methods, when applied to natural forms, reinvigorated painting, which became wonderfully accessible. The work has a sense of place and is highly evocative of Northern California light and color. More...

Mitchel Confer
8 x 10 P.B. 98pgs.
$30.00
1-60052-004-9
artist website

Description - In viewing Confer's work, one is sometimes reminded of a Duchamp or a Johns—not because of any noticeable stylistic similarities. Rather, the parallel is in Confer's ability to take a commonplace item and make it noticeable, urging the viewer to really study it. And yet the objects in his art convey no underlying meaning. They are not obviously symbolic. They have no totemic significance. More...

Courtesans and Kings

Courtesans and Kings
Robert J. Del Bonta
8.5x11 P.B. 80pgs.
$30.00
1-60052-025-1

Description - It is with great pleasure and conviction that I introduce to you our first catalogue. It embodies a collection of paintings, each carefully selected to offer our clients a range of styles and color palettes. To say that the works presented here convey just one thing or another is extremely narrow. Whether one painting is a depiction of a noble or another the visual narrative of a literary work, they all seem to share in providing a visual feast, often evoking an emotional response. More...

Two Minutes and Counting
By Kim Frohsin
8.5 x 11 P.B. 250pgs.
$40.00
1-60052-018-1
artist website

Description - Some artists we admire for their formal skill, and others for their quicksilver spontaneity. But there's a third, rarer type as well. I mean the artist for whom mastery and intuition are inseparable, fused. Kim Frohsin is this kind of artist. Her work reveals a gorgeous braiding of form and process. Drawing from the model, she captures a range of emotions as they uncoil their way through the body, seeking expression in the resulting gestures. More...

1-60082-027-8
artist website

Description - The work in Kim Frohsin's, "FIGURES WITH EDGES", sears itself into being. Few contemporary painters manage Frohsin's sheer vivacity of color and form. And her talent extends beyond formal skill: although she doesn't paint overt narrative, much less illustrate her subjects, she always reveals a deep compassion for the expressive force of the body. The gestures that her figures strike are the results of intense emotions. More...

Still Lifes
8.5x11 P.B.
70 pgs.

Description - The glistening carapace of melon, squash, or orange. The warm brown color, the smooth perfection of the egg or cluster of eggs set off by the darker tan and encircling texture of their basket. Pitchers and glass bottles; dimension and repetition playing a quiet game. Transparency, translucence, pattern, shape. Wall, table, one or both, the perfect ground in place. These paintings are alters, little shrines, relevant to the deep experience of the universe.

Description - Richard Lindner's art was - and is - appreciated, but it does not fit into any Modernist or Postmodernist "slot." No one painted like Lindner. He was erroneously called a precursor to Pop Art, but his heraldic symbols of New York, his paintings of pimps and armored women, were cultural commentaries far removed from Pop’s bland images.
