Artist Biography:

B. Dumont Renard was born in France in 1957. She signs her paintings B. Dumont Renard, sometimes BDR. She received her first easel at the age of 16 and began to paint under the expert advice of a painter from her region. At 18, her first exhibitions took place at the Pays de Salers in Cantal and at the Château de Val in Auvergne. During the next decade, she took classes at the ABC in Paris, experimented with various techniques and began to exhibit on a regular basis. At the same time, she worked on the creation of posters, wine labels and commissions for the State, in particular for various town halls. She also begin to experiment with illustration, mosaic, sculpture and eventually abstraction.

In addition, Elisabeth has an affinity for cats. She has created over two hundred cat drawings and acrylic paintings on paper, wood and canvas. Her cats brighten up her life and her work and this series of cats has been presented in many exhibitions, salons, etc. in France and abroad, including Tokyo, Seoul, Milan, New York, Shanghai, San Roan and Spain to name a few.

In 2009, she became a member of the International Collective of Artists Art Zoom (CIAAZ) in order to open up new horizons at the international, of which she has seen much success. She has also won awards for her work in numerous exhibitions and been published in numerous books and magazines.

Artist Statement:

The media I use for my art consists in superimposing several layers of resin, with long drying times between each layer, in order to obtain glazes. It is the search for a special light and effects of depth that guide me in my process. Breaking with the classic conception of painting according to which the reflection outshines the vision, my work is noteworthy for its dark tones associated with luminous contrasts and is based on the demonstration of the way in which a color escapes monochromy. I would like the viewer to get lost inside my paintings and my work is an invitation to poetic experience.

Elisabeth’s work can be viewed on her website.

Artist Biography

Calvin Lai's art is a mixture of medicine, meditation, and personal growth. He found early on that drawing was something he loved, and to make a picture appear lifelike became his goal. Through constantly drawing, his work began to breath, and Calvin's fascination with value and perspective led him to become a student of realism. Eventually he moved from where he grew up in Los Angeles to San Francisco. There he studied drawing and printmaking at San Francisco State University. In 2008, he enrolled in the Academy of Art for illustration, but began painting instead. He found that he preferred the fine arts over commercial illustration, and now works as a full time oil painter.

Since then, working from his studio, he has continued to develop and refine his oil painting skills. Lai’s work has been shown nationally in galleries, group exhibitions and juried shows. He has executed a large number of portrait commissions over the past several years, and his paintings have appeared in national and international publications. Throughout his career, Calvin Lai has expanded his focus from figurative and portraiture to encompass a variety of subjects such as still life to the San Francisco cityscape. Now he has no borders to what he chooses to paint, and he is driven to capture everything around him through his paints, brushes, and determination.

Artist Statement

I collect moments. If you look through my collection you'll see paintings of people I've met, places I've been, and things I've seen. Because of my background in classical realism, it is important for me to paint these moments realistically. But solely painting realism feels incomplete, and I find that it can become a bit too academic. It's not only about the visual recreation that is my intention in oil painting. I want to make my audience feel they are walking down a rainy street, climbing up a sun drenched hill, or sitting in front of a beautiful figure. I want a viewer to feel the moments I collect.

In my work, I find myself breaking free from traditional ways of painting and incorporating much more expressive means. I place highly developed detail next to looser, almost abstract, areas. I'm fascinated with how to combine near photographic rendering alongside the roughness of the palette knife, or the randomness of a loaded brush. This combination of realism and Impressionism techniques creates a natural tension in my paintings, as well as directs where I want the eye to travel. Even my choice of composition and subject matter are influenced by this part of me. I find that I create compositions outside of conventional rules and gravitate towards subjects that do not necessarily follow a standard of beauty. There is a bit of provocation in this, as I play off of the traditional ways art should be, but there is also an invitation to see what else beauty entails.

Irish Artist, Paula Pohli is pleased to announce a new forthcoming solo exhibition: Juxtapositions at the Kenny Gallery in Gallway, Ireland.

Covid restrictions permitting, a virtual opening with a private view will take place 5:00 pm, 10th September, 2021.

The exhibition opens to the public Saturday, 11th September, 2021 from 9:00 am.

The Kenny Gallery: Liosbán Retail Park, Tuam Road, Galway H91 N5P8. Open: 9 am-5 pm.

Juxtapositions includes linocuts, egg tempera and watercolour paintings. The theme of the exhibition is a creative interpretation of the word juxtaposition. New art created in a worldwide pandemic is juxtaposed with recent work.
Paintings in different media and prints will be exhibited side by side with black and white motifs versus a coloured version; rural with cityscapes; insects with birds; bats with humans; sheds with sheds; etc. It is both academic and thoughtful, sometimes humorous. A selection of Paula’s much loved older linocuts The Classics will be separately exhibited.

“Life, decay, birth, death and the energy of life inspired new paintings and prints. Some Motifs are interpretations of agricultural buildings. The vegetation often imagined. Themes of barns and sheds display 'the man-made' contrasted with 'the natural'. ‘Structured’ juxtaposed with a ‘living thing’ - in a strong graphic format of patterns and lines, black/white and colour”.  Paula Pohli 2020
