How I Paint Figures without Painting Figures. Welcome back to another BobBlast! This BobBlast is titled How I Paint Figures without Painting Figures. It is an adventurous way to get unexpected results and surprises while painting figures. Whether you are working on a pre-gessoed canvas or a gessoed sheet of watercolor paper, the technique I sometimes use is called “reductive painting” — taking some of the paint away. To do this, I usually use isopropyl alcohol-soaked Viva towels to wipe away the wet acrylic paint down to the white gesso ground. First, I start by painting a medium tint over the entire surface. Then after that initial tint has dried, I add a dark color over the top of it — and while it’s still wet, I wipe away and lift off the paint until a figure appears out of the dark color. Start with removing a spot for the head, then move and wipe as you proceed downward to the feet. This is only a start — not meant to be a final image, however, sometimes it turns out pretty cool at the beginning too! Practice, practice, practice…
http://www.forumgallery.com/adetail.php?id=207 Steven Assael, the New York artist hailed by The Art Newspaper as "the foremost figurative painter of his generation", will exhibit his latest paintings and drawings at Forum Gallery, New York, from March 19 to May 2, 2009. The exhibition, Assaels seventh since joining the Gallery in 1998, focuses on public and private aspects of urban life and explores issues of intimacy, gender and personal identity. The portraits and narratives the artist paints touch on contact, isolation, sexuality and the journey through life. In the paintings, Steven Assael employs his unique, characteristic sense of light and shadow to illuminate the characters and lives of his subjects. A featured painting, Crowd #1, 2009, oil on canvas, 72" x 96", was exhibited by Forum Gallery at The Armory Show Modern (New York, March 5-9) to preview the forthcoming exhibition. In this major work, Assael leaves specific location and narrative to the viewer. He shows a crowd of infinite number and depth, people to whom we relate but who do not relate to each other, no matter how close the gathering. The drawings are striking in their detail and accuracy, always used in the interest and exploration of intimate moments of introspection. All of the drawings and paintings in the exhibition have been created since 2006. Steven Assaels work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions at museums from Chattanooga to Seattle and at galleries throughout the United States. Works have been chosen for curated group exhibitions at the Naples Museum of Art, FL; the Arkansas Art Center, the Evansville Museum, IN; and the Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, OK; among many. Paintings and drawings can be found in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art & Design, Kansas City; The Columbus Museum, GA; and many other museum and distinguished private collections. An opening reception with the artist will take place on Thursday, March 19, 2009 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM at Forum Gallery, 745 Fifth Avenue at 57th Street, Fifth Floor. The exhibition continues through Saturday, May 2, 2009. A full color catalogue, with essay by Anna F. Burgess, is available, $25.00 ppd. The entire exhibition may be viewed online at www.forumgallery.com/currentseason.

Eric Fischl, one of the most influential figurative painters in our time, discusses the multiple challenges of figuration. Eric Fischl (b 1948) is an internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor. His artwork is represented in many distinguished museums throughout the world and has been featured in over one thousand publications. His extraordinary achievements throughout his career have made him one of the most influential figurative painters of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. He began his art education in Phoenix, Arizona attending Phoenix College and earned his B.F.A. from the California Institute of the Arts in 1972. In 1978 he relocated to New York City. Fischl's suburban upbringing provided him with a backdrop of alcoholism and a country club culture obsessed with image over content. His early work thus became focused on the rift between what was experienced and what could not be said. His first New York City solo show was at Edward Thorp Gallery in 1979, during a time when suburbia was not considered a legitimate genre for art. He first received critical attention for depicting the dark, disturbing undercurrents of mainstream American life. Fischl was born in 1948 in New York City. He currently lives and works in Sag Harbor, New York. His recent solo shows include Friends, Lovers and Other Constellations at the Albertina, Vienna, Austria (2014); Dive Deep: Eric Fischl and the Process of Painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, travelling to San Jose Museum of Art, California (2012-2013); Beach Life at the Guild Hall of East Hampton, New York (2012); Eric Fischl: Corrida en Ronda at the Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga, Spain (2010); Eric Fischl: Ten Breaths at the Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover, Germany (2007); Prints and Drawings at the Delaware Center of Contemporary Art, Wilmington (2006); Eric Fischl at the Fondazione Cassa Di Risparmio in Bologna, Italy (2004); and Paintings and Drawings 1979-2001 at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany (2003). Eric Fischl is a Fellow at both the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Amerian Academy of Arts and Science.

Adolphe William Bouguereau: A collection of 233 paintings (HD)
Description: "William-Adolphe Bouguereau (November 30, 1825 – August 19, 1905) was a French academic painter and traditionalist. In his realistic genre paintings he used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body. During his life he enjoyed significant popularity in France and the United States, was given numerous official honors, and received top prices for his work. As the quintessential salon painter of his generation, he was reviled by the Impressionist avant-garde. By the early twentieth century, Bouguereau and his art fell out of favor with the public, due in part to changing tastes. In the 1980s, a revival of interest in figure painting led to a rediscovery of Bouguereau and his work. Throughout the course of his life, Bouguereau executed 822 known finished paintings, although the whereabouts of many are still unknown.
