I love these painrings, because of rhino is one of my favorite animals, maybe.. Whatever, they’re just beautiful.
Here is the artist’s statement:
“The direction of my current work includes a focus on global habitat destruction. My Rhinos provide a metaphor for the fragility of our own existence.Loose abstract landscapes employ light washes, runs, drips and splashes – at times worked back to lighter shades with Gesso. Overlaid with realistic translucent figures, created by airbrushing light layers of opaque inks. Allowing the landscape to show through the figures, emphasising the finite existence we all ultimately share on earth.

What is an Airbrush?

A miniature, hand-held paint sprayer. Historically used for retouching photographs and commercial art production.

Paint or ink is atomised and propelled from the Airbrush by compressed air. Paint flow is controlled by a constantly variable trigger, allowing for precise paint application in skilled hands.”

He is a hyperrealist Turkish artist whose paintings are oil on canvas. I didn’t see any artist like him who paints as real as photograph. Some of my friends think that these paintings are photograph, when they have seen these.

Ian Davenport is a British artist whose painting techniques remind me the methods we use in the course VA 202. I found some info about the artist on wikipedia:

“Many of Davenport’s works are made by pouring paint onto a tilted surface and letting gravity spread the paint over the surface. He has usually worked on medium density fibreboard rather than canvas, and most often employs household gloss paint, meaning the viewer can see their own reflection in the work. He has made a number of diptychs and triptychs as well as single works.

Davenport’s use of dripped paint and gravity has been compared to similar techniques employed by Helen Frankenthaler and Morris Louis in the 1950s and 1960s. Other possible influences on his work include Jackson Pollock and Bridget Riley.”
