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.
