Today I’m admiring the watercolors of Francesco Clemente, an Italian artist whose work has morphed quite dramatically throughout the decades. While Clemente doesn’t have a lot of watercolors in his portfolio, I think that they are among some of his most exquisite work.

Gabe Brown creates enigmatic multi-layered paintings. Woodgrain patterns, rainbows, a sinking ship, a road-to-nowhere. What is the world coming to? Brown doesn’t provide answers, but lets the viewer choose their own interpretations from her colorful imagery.

Colorado based artist Heather Patterson is really good at combining different patterns and forms to create cohesive paintings which tickle the eye. In Patterson’s work, geometric shapes mutate into biological forms. Natural landscapes become man-made networks.

Fluorescent colors galore. Only a very brave artist would combine so many neon colors in a single painting. Using a palette knife, French artist Françoise Nielly skillfully fills the canvas with bold strokes of bright color. I featured Nielly’s work last year (see ”Portraits by Françoise Nielly“) but the prolific artist has already come back with a slew . . . → Read More: More portraits by Françoise Nielly
