Alyssa Monks and Paul Cadden

I’ve always marveled at artists who take on hyperrealism.  Two of my favorites include Alyssa Monks and Paul Cadden.  Both take precision and detail to the extreme but employ different qualities to achieve their vision.

Looking at art, up close and on my screen

When I look at paintings in a museum, I like to get so close (if the guard will let me) that I can see the texture of the paint on the canvas.  I like to understand the physicality and dimensions of a sculpture, and I like to walk into a gallery and feel completely overwhelmed […]

Art Predictions for 2012
