Happy Thursday, everyone! Thursdays are worthy of celebration because it means new art and new artists. This blog series highlights our newest artists. The trio this week are great examples of style. All three have mastered a style that resonates with them.
Discover the artistic styles that move our new artists Andrea Epstein, Fernando Garcia, and Samuel Smith. 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 and welcoming them to UGallery!
Andrea Epstein. Berkeley Heights, New Jersey
Andrea Epstein layers shape, texture, color, and form as an ode to the abstract expressionist tradition. By combining various relief printing techniques such as collographs and linocuts, Andrea embarks on an unchartered journey of self-discovery and artistic expression. Serigraphy and monoprinting allow Andrea to achieve a variety of textures and colors unknown to paint. Her prints are literal representations of the creative process. She received a B.F.A. in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and an M.F.A. in painting from the Yale School of Art.
Fernando Garcia. Cape Coral, Florida
Fernando Garcia says, “Abstract art is the picture of human emotions.” He is a self-taught, established Cuban artist who has worked with acrylics for over 15 years. His bright colors and quirky abstractions are the direct result of human emotions, sensibility, and positive energy. Fernando is compelled to create abstract art because of the creative freedoms the style offers.
Samuel Smith. Alpine, Utah
Rhyme is as essential for a landscape painter as it is for a poet. Samuel Smith has mastered the art of rhyming color rather than sound. His impressionist landscapes capture the minutiae in nature unlike any other art form. Samuel Smith says, “I believe that beauty can inspire us to more peaceful and meaningful existence.”
