Alex Coxville, Canadian painter

Alex Coxville (1920-2013) was a Canadian painter. I like him because of the uncertain mood we often find in his work. It’s troubling but harmlessly. It’s quiet but strange. It’s daily, but like in a dream – notice his use on “there’s no shadow”. And I love his way to choose a funny point of view, hiding things we would like to see…

 

Here are 10 paintings :

Segantini, Italian #painter

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giovanni_Segantini was an Italian painter (1858-1899).

No genius here, and it’s maybe why I love his work so much. His “Bad Mothers” is a masterpiece. I love his way of painting the simple life of people in the mountains at the time. You can feel the wind, right? His “sense of sun” is absolutely fantastic. What a light!

OK, I shut up now : here’s what I found for you…

Poumeyrol, French painter

Jean-Marie Poumeyrol was born in 1946. This French painter is said to be a “fantastic realist” (which probably must makes him smile). Symbols. Erotica. Lands. Boats…

I like him a lot for a couple or reasons : it’s gorgeous, but also enigmatic. Some paintings are like… games, riddles. You need time to see things, guess what’s happening (whose shoes are they, in the first picture?), etc…

But as usual with great artists, photographers, poets, painters : words are very, very weak to explain. So :

Alex Andreev – Digital Painter

I like this guy. He’s a good surrealistic artist. Not too disturbing, but yet… No toxic genius, but yet… He’s amazing, though!

It’s a very strange balance in me. Something’s lacking, yes – but it also makes me feel “I want to follow this guy, he’ll surprise me more in a few years”. He’s good enough to make you want to see more, and more, etc. My left eyebrow doesn’t climb, but I have a good smile, and curiosity. Thank you!

Surreal Animals & Symmetry : Martin Wittfooth, Canadian #painter

This artist combines precise beauty with a certain amount of… disturbing elements. One lever is often pushed strangely far : too many flowers, too big, too symmetrical. It’s beautiful and disturbing, haunting, hypnotical, overwhelming…
