There’s no better way to celebrate Pablo Picasso’s birthday than with UGallery’s New Artist Spotlight. Every Thursday, UGallery welcomes a batch of new artists and artwork to the site. This blog series highlights them.
Send a “Hello” to Lisa Carney, Christopher Garvey, and Ann Tuck. Below is a little bit about their work. If you like what you see, let them know by leaving a comment on their profile pages. I’m sure they’d love to hear from you.
Lisa Carney. Ste-Anne-Des-Plaines, Quebec
The earth inspires Lisa Carney. From the layers of sediment underneath the planet’s crust to the fiery liquid lava that heats it, Lisa Carney “is fed by our beautiful planet and its phenomena.” Lisa goes below the surface of consciousness to get to the core of an emotion. Her compositions are tactile representations of the human condition.
Christopher Garvey. Summerville, South Carolina
Classical Realism is Christopher Garvey’s style of choice. Rooted in the traditions of Western art that grace the halls of famous art institutions, Chris paints in accordance with great masters who loved the physical world. He says, “The principles of Classical Realism are built on order, beauty, harmony and completeness.”
Ann Tuck. Berkeley Lake, Georgia
Ann Tuck may paint subject matter that is close to home, but her art is far from confined. Nestled in Ann Tuck’s paintings of farm animals and unripe fruit are itty-bitty surprises of artistic depth. She gathered a distinct aesthetic for contrasting colors and bold textures from her wayfaring past. Ann’s travels have inspired her to create works teeming with Andy Warhol’s panache and Grant Wood’s elegance.
