American Painter Dennis Hartley

Is this not the most beautiful barn you’ve ever seen? I fell in love with Dennis Hartley’s work after seeing it online at the Morrison Gallery.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FLOATING BARN, 2006, oil on canvas, 36 x 36 inches

I love the dimension created by parallel planes, but what I think is really great is the gorgeous coloration!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WINTER BARN & SHADOW, 2006, oil on canvas, 33 x 26 inches

American painter Dennis Hartley is represented by fine art galleries from coast to coast. Originally an architect, he has spent twenty-five years in design related fields in Europe and the U.S., and has painted professionally since 1998. His media includes both acrylic and oil on canvas. The work often straddles the line between representational and abstract, incorporating ideas from ancient Chinese painting as well as from Western modernist movements of the twentieth century. Besides continuing to explore the American barn and other landscape motifs, his current work is also moving into the non-representational realm incorporating acrylic and mixed media.

The Hauntingly Beautiful Paintings of Chris Armstrong

Chris Armstrong is an artist that I have admired for a long time. We live on different coasts but both obviously share a love of the ocean.

Kiss

Kiss, 2011, oil on canvas, 38 x 60 inches

Chris Armstrong studied painting and art history in Florence, Italy before receiving his BA from Bucknell University. After graduation, Chris went on to receive his MFA from NYU where he won the school’s MVP award and exhibited at Washington Square East Galleries. Chris lives in Gloucester, MA with wife Tatiana and daughter Lily and co-presides over North Mountain Press; a fine art publishing company specializing in the work of his late father, American realist David Armstrong. Chris’ work was also selected for the U.S. State Department’s ‘Art in Embassies Exhibition.’

Sleeper

Sleeper, 2011, oil on canvas, 50 x 34 inches

“Chris Armstrong paints with the grace and confidence of considerable training and well-distilled purpose. Armstrong’s pictures are most agreeable to look at, but he has, in addition, both a conscience and a nervously weird eye on the world and its people. The who, and where that he offers are isolated, quietly perilous, and subconsciously full of warning. They are also alive and ever so slightly promising of connection and hope. Armstrong has a unique and dangerously honest vision, and he renders it with disarming precision.”


—Frederick G. Dillen, author of Hero and Fool.
