Jasper Johns - The How Is The What
A partially academic, almost spontaneous valentine video to the two "Mind/Mirror" exhibitions of Jasper Johns.
Dianne Athey is a New York artist, Her work deals with the harmony of opposites. Both ethereal and down to earth.
Muñoz explores a set of problems around three primary subjects: Geology, Archeology, and the ephemeral nature of human civilization.
Titus Welliver. Actor. Painter. Badass. Titus paints moody abstract landscapes that are both wistful and romantic, familiar yet remote.
ArtRep-DG.com and Stewart & Stewart Printer-Publishers are pleased to announce the first fine art print edition by artist-actor Titus Welliver, entitled “Sam’s Moon”.
A quiet night in Connecticut, where Welliver grew up is depicted. The veins and arteries of the hill reflected in moonlight show a spiky hand, contrasted with the dark colorfield of the night.
Although Welliver is not a plein air painter, he takes his cues from the landscape surrounding him. Sam’s Moon provides a similar gaze on the country hills and reflected light. Welliver began studying painting with his father Neil Welliver when he was twelve years old. He went to art school and then to drama school. We are thrilled to introduce his first edition of prints.
“Sam’s Moon” has been printed in a limited edition of only 25 impressions.
In October 2019, the piece was featured at Print Week in New York, and was purchased by the Mezzeanine Gallery at the Metropolitan Museum of art in New York City. The print is available from Stewart & Stewart, and also available online at ArtRep-DG.com.
Note: Titus is currently starring in Amazon Prime’s Bosch as Harry Bosch. In the show, he lives in a rather remarkable home in the Hollywood Hills with a spectacular view of the LA basin. Harry spends a lot of time with that view, watching the twinkle lights and urban movement. Remarkably resembling the thought and visual process Titus went through for this print.
ArtRep-DG and Stewart & Stewart, Printer/Publishers are proud to present “Aslan’s Rock” the second fine art print by actor/artist Titus Welliver in a limited edition of only 25 impressions.
Last year, in September, “Sam’s Moon” was published. It was a very popular piece, collected by the Mezzanine Gallery of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and while, we have impressions remain available, we are offering “ Aslan’s Rock” as a companion piece to “Sam’s Moon”.
In Welliver’s signature landscape style, Aslan’s Rock shows the strong dark diagonal of the rock, married to the stunning bright blue sky with cotton candy clouds. It is the last light over Aslan’s Rock that soothes and inspires. The permanence of the rock with the impermanence of the sky. The clouds are moving towards dusk and dark. There is a sense of longing and nostalgia with echoes towards the sublime. It is a picture of meaningful opposites.
Once again, Welliver has created a piece that is “deceptively simple” and profoundly moving; The eye is riveted by the lack of brushstroke in the rock, and the dancing clouds delicately rendered. The landscape is transformative.
The release of this print comes at a time where change is imminent if not already shifted. Aslan’s Rock is a standard bearer of tranquility and immediacy.
While not necessarily intended to be metaphorical, Aslan’s Rock has a new magic of its own when viewed through a timely contemporary lens.
