Working with iconic images to unite similar subject matter, painter Jeffrey Deane Hall (NAP# 100) combines mathematical and painterly techniques to merge media and themes together.  His paintings are a mix of assemblage and collage and they have an architectural and puzzle-like aesthetic. Jeffrey Deane Hall | Man Recast, oil painting on panel, 18×24″, 2012.   In “Man Recast,” Hall explores the subject of marriage through two well-known and lauded works: Jan van  [ Read More ]

Out of the more than 400 commercial galleries that we surveyed this month, more than 70% had painting shows on view. Among them are two dozen solo exhibitions by New American Paintings alumni. New Orleans’ native Nicole Charbonnet, who was featured in one of our earliest issues, presents new work at the venerable Arthur Roger Gallery. In San Francisco, Chris Ballantyne is a must see at Hosfelt Gallery, as is  [ Read More ]

Paper jams, leaking toner cartridges, formatting errors—there are few who haven’t been frustrated by the glitches and hiccups common to printers. But artist Wade Guyton depends upon these errors in the process of his art making. The “paintings” displayed in his mid-career survey at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York draw on his use of inkjet printing to create large-scale works on linen, as well as small-scale works on  [ Read More ]

This is an excellent question, and one that isn’t asked often enough.

Except for one small point, which stated: eligible entrants are artists born on the 1st February, 1985 and named as ‘Tommaso Polo’ on their birth certificates. The exhibition of the finalists (guess who?) is taking place at the MOP gallery in Sydney. The winning work, by  [ Read More ]

Nevertheless, features such as parterre gardens, allées (double rows of trees flanking a path or road) and the frequent use of classical statuary and Roman-style garden buildings  [ Read More ]


Neoclassical painting tended to be heroic or tragic in subject, often depicting famous events from history or literature. But Neoclassical principles could be found even in eighteenth-century portraits and still lifes, at least those in which the compositions were above all symmetrical and harmonious.
