In order to understand a thing’s relevance, we need its adverse or adjacent-other to compare it to. My paintings reside in this flux - romanticism overlapping progress - in order to understand how the photo functions as cultural memory.
In my paintings, I reappropriate traditional techniques by deconstructing current understanding and meaning to better gain new and different usages.
Echoing the printer, I use only four colors: cyan, magenta, yellow and black. The work develops in the same manner as a print, left to right. The finished product hangs like a movie screen, slightly swaying when a person walks by, disrupting its ether.

Tanya Atanasova Visual Arts (@tanyaatanasovavisualarts)
Since her graduation from the National Academy of art in Sofia, Tanya Atanasova has worked in several different media: painting, ceramics, sculptures and installations… She grew up in an environment where different artistic disciplines were in constant interaction. But although she has been drawing and painting all her life , she has only discovered her great passion for oil painting in 2016. Inspired, after visiting the studios/taking masterclasses by some of her most favorite contemporary artists - she decided to become a full time painter. . Dedicated to big size non-traditional portraits, she started weaving her waythrough contemporary realism.
Kathleen Carr (@carrfineart)
Kathleen is an award winning contemporary representational artist. Her narrative paintings are radiant with feminine beauty; capturing the soulful expressions of her sitters and revealing their inner world. The viewer is also drawn into a narrative through stunning details such as the convincing rendering of birds, flowers, translucent and lace fabrics and damask patterns. The artist seeks to create work with a timeless aesthetic yet thoroughly contemporary.

Alex J Dewars (@ajdewars)
Alex is a Scottish, figurative painter working almost exclusively in oil paint.
His work explores identity, hierarchies, patriotism and body politics .
The result often depicts romantic and nihilistic conclusions in a single suspended moment.
He works exclusively in oil because it ties him to 500 years of figure painting. In this rich history you can see themes which are repeated, are continuously relevant in modern civilization, and ripe for parody.
He has exhibited extensively in galleries throughout Scotland for over 10 years, including at the Royal Scottish Academy Annual Exhibition.
Jodi Gerbi (@jodi1234)
I paint resilience but not always through the depiction of the figure. My oil paintings are realistic portrayals of the garbage, trash cans and drain pipes as a way to convey the idea that humans are often required to find something beautiful in a hard situation in order to keep going. The ability of a human being to do this is the essence of resilience.

Francien Krieg (@francienkrieg)
Krieg paints older women as beautifully complete nudes. She acknowledges the marks time has made upon the physical body and focuses our attention to a place where physical and spiritual beauty intersect. Imagining a world in which societal pressures lift and current narratives around physicality and the female body broaden. When viewing Francien’s nudes it is hard not to feel moved by their unflinching realism and stark depiction of female beauty.
Krieg’s personal vision is consistent and committed. She expresses herself through her art in ways that give her a unique point of view on the human condition.”

Jacques Bodin (@jacquesbodin)
Jacques Bodin, painter, lives and works in Levallois Perret, France.
He is one of the main representatives of the European hyperrealist current.
He explores some favorite themes such as grass, fruits, hair, still lifes or vegetation treated with a genuine attention to detail.
The subjects are mostly treated in close-ups, under indirect lighting.
On the frontier of minimalism, some of his works bear witness to a conceptual aspect of hyperreality.
He is represented by Plus One gallery in London and State of the Arts gallery in Hong Kong.
