Q&A with Erin Hanson

Galleries, gallerists and curators are important pieces of the puzzle but the more hands-on you can be the more likely you are to actually get your art in front of collectors and fans.

Art Aesthetics began life on Instagram in 2015. We've since grown to encompass an online magazine with reviews, articles, and exclusive interviews on established, emerging, and yet unknown artists from across the world. Our mainstay remains criticism, specifically of an academic bent.  

Bilmes has mastered the ability to portray emotions, rather than narratives in his paintings. In a similar manner to the old masters, the viewer is free to project their own emotional experiences onto the image.

The Figurative Communication of Denis Sarazhin

Denis Sarazhin’s Pantomime Series (2016-) forecloses ‘language’ in returning to the painterly and figural. He focusses our attention on the body by cleverly frustrating the viewer’s instinctive glance toward the subject’s face. In this way, the artist challenges us to reconsider the communicative potential of the body.

Sally West: The Bird of Song with Claws of Paint

West relies for her aesthetic effects on heavy impasto and on her brilliant command of colour, juxtaposing strong, almost screaming, flakes of pigment to broad shores of muted shade. In these paintings people and objects become patterns, and through repetition these shapes and forms acquire a wondrous touch.

Interesting Artworks: Lake O'Hara by Clyde Aspevig

As a composer in paint, Aspevig uses an understanding of fractal geometry and dynamic symmetry in his work. One of the principles of fractal geometry is self-similarity. In particular, when you study the shapes of the trees and rocks in Aspevig’s work, there are similarities to the primary, secondary, and tertiary shapes: the larger shapes are divided and then subdivided into smaller unequal intervals.

Data and Art

We're excited to launch our video series 'Data and Art'! Every week we'll be interviewing interesting people in the art world on how data and tech are changing the art market. In this introductory video, our director, Pavan, and Feral Horses CEO, Francesco, tell you why we started this series, share some of the topics we'll be discussing and hint as to some of guests we have lined up!
