Favorite Artists

Today, four artists whose work I admire and influence me. First Cheryl Goldsleger subtle work based on architectural design drawings. They are a combination of encaustic and parts formed by computer aided machining devices. Combining one of the oldest techniques and one of the newest she has executed a composition that bridges the gap between sculpture and painting and softens the technicality of the medium and the subject.

Next Tamara de Limpicka, the epitome of Art Deco. Enough said.

Audrey Flack's airbrushed works on canvas are some of the finest examples of photo-realistic work from the 1970's.
