Randy Hryhorczuk

Monday, February 16th, 2009


Randy Hryhorczuk has divided his paintings into several categories, all of which are worth a look, but once again I find myself drawn to urban landscapes.  His series of billboard inspired works are fantastic, so fantastic in fact that I might just have to re-think my opinion of billboards in general.

Lauren Minco

Some people are simply having more fun than should be allowed by law.  At least, that’s the feeling I get looking through Lauren Minco’s work.  Very cool.

Jeffrey Palladini

Jeffrey Palladini finds a way to distill intimate moments into very simple graphic compositions, and the effect is quite impressive. I’m reminded of the incredible comic work of Rutu Modan.

Sitting in the middle of winter, as I am, sure isn’t hurting their appeal, but I would be loving William Maughan’s coastal landscapes regardless. Fantastic!

There is a great set of portraits painted on book pages over on Annie Wong’s site.

Megan Sinnett

They absolutely work on their own as paintings, but knowing that Megan Sinnett’s new series of portraits are based on publicized photos of missing children has definitely given them an intense atmosphere that I can’t shake.

Kendra Gadzala

It’s not the only thing I enjoy about these paintings, but there is a simple and compelling beauty to Kendra Gadzala’s work that keeps me coming back.

Danny Hussey

I am thoroughly impressed with the way Danny Hussey combines and overlaps mediums, images, and materials in the making his work.  Check it out here.

Jeremy Herndl

I’m really enjoying Jeremy Herndl’s work, which you can find here.


Update: Jeremy sent me a link to his facebook page that features even more of his work.

Need a break from this reality?  I have the solution: an entirely different and fantastical world that is born from the brush of Lola. It’s a pretty amazing place, but you might want to leave a trail of bread crumbs if you want to find your way back.
