Pink logo artwork by William Wray
Modern art museums generally favor a guiding principle of idea based art, rarely considering contemporary representational as worthy of display along side conceptual installation, which can lead to marginalization of work with strong technical skill sets. Conversely, a museum that shows illustration oriented fine art would never have a wet, unmade bed on display.
Here’s an example:
David Lipson assembles one of a kind robots from random objects. He studied oil painting at the Art Students League of New York, and the National Academy of Design. His robots have been featured in museums, galleries, books, and on television. Previously, David spent 17 years as a producer of animation for film and television. His website is http://lipson.ptsi.co/catalog/1
Seco is 34″ tall: His chest is a vintage circuit tester with Bakelight dials. Circa 1940’s. Other parts include motorcycle turn signals, track lights, auto emblems, bicycle parts, plumbing supplies, springs, corn on the cob holders, and electric fan parts.
Sean is a figurative painter whose technical accuracy of his alla prima paintings, is derived from a deep understanding of drawing and his own system of mixing colors. Using the human form in familiar urban scenes (and often using his friends as models) he reveals a truthful, and often raw spirit that makes his work a distinctive, contemporary testimony of our time.
