“Lightforce” 40×40 in. (diptych) acrylic, sand on wood panel

Just in from artist Dasha Guilliam, this 40×40 in. diptych from her Textured by Nature series has a subtle, iridescent sheen which adds brilliance to the sky. Dasha’s passion for the sea stems from her childhood growing up by the Black Sea , and continues to inspire her creations. Each painting is imbued with a touch of the sea, textured with sand gathered from her routine communion with the Pacific Ocean.

Brooke is a Los Angeles based artist, primarily an urban landscape painter. Her art boasts a strength of substance and style. More than faithful renderings of the places she has traveled and spent time, her large paintings are imbued with the mood, energy and character of the place and its inhabitants. The use of color and detail, and the select absence of either, are her primary tool for transmuting the essence of any locale onto canvas. Her process is a layering of media, using a combination of ink, acrylic and impasto oil.

Brooke Harker’s opening series for the gallery, Energies of The California Coast, is a collection of large paintings celebrating the coastal communities of southern California, including Laguna Beach, Newport Beach and Dana Point. We invite you to join us in the opening reception, in conjunction with First Thursdays Artwalk, April 2, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

His temporary move back to China a few years ago, and subsequent gallery representation in Laguna Beach at Mian Situ Gallery (now closed) meant an absence of his masterful paintings from our collection. So we are very pleased to showcase, once again,  the exceptional paintings of Ruo Li.

Ruo Li is often referred to as an “artist’s artist” and is admired for his ability to create stunning realism, yet with a very efficient use of  brushstrokes. This freshness and boldness of brushstrokes leads some to believe he paints quickly. But actually, much time is needed for Li to paint in this very deliberate manner, as he leaves himself no room for error for every stroke of paint.

Today we have two original paintings by Li, “Vast World” which was just completed, and “California Autumn”, from his private collection and which won the Gold Medal Award for Master Signature Members at the 19th National Juried Exhibition of Oil Painters of America in 2010.  Click here to read more about Ruo Li.
