Bernard Cathelin's little nap

By Christian Hohmann on Feb 19, 2021 1:06:23 PM

Bernard Cathelin (1919 - 2004) was a French painter known for his uniquely stylized abstractions of flowers, landscapes, and figures. Thick palette knife strokes of paint capture the light and atmosphere of the Provence, where he spent much time. Cathelin's work has been exhibited in countless museums and galleries around the world. There are very few original works currently on the market and none of this quality and condition. Painted in 1988, "Sieste Au Petit Saint Vincent" depicts a nude woman lounging under an open window that looks out onto the water. Petit Saint Vincent is an Island in the Caribbean and Cathelin beautifully captured the lazy, warm island summer afternoon in this stunning 59" x 59" painting.

D.J. Hall - Nocturne

By Christian Hohmann on May 8, 2020 3:15:32 PM

Contemporary painter DJ Hall’s Nocturne pays homage to peer artist and Neo-expressionist Eric Fischl’s famous 1982 work Barbecue, in which a young boy fills the foreground with a flame pouring out of his mouth as his grinning father commandeers a grill behind him near the pool. Only in Hall’s version, as in all of her pieces, the primary subject is a female and the world is one of her own making.

Manzur Kargar - Blood Cells

By Christian Hohmann on Apr 16, 2020 3:27:18 PM

This stunning triptych by Manzur Kargar, the Afghanistan-born, Berlin based German painter juxtaposes the glamorous beauty of magazine cover models with visual elements that appear post modern, but are, upon closer look, enlarger blood cells. It becomes a modern-day version of the art historical theme of the memento mori, the reminder that beauty and life on earth is fleeting.
