As the golden epoch of 2015 starts to unfold we are now facing an age of art that is fresh. The art market corrects itself, as the exuberance of female art undergoes and expands. Within this correction a large scale repercussion of wonderful alterations of art happening are underway as the female art scene expands to become more prominent. This positive correction in the current art market is evident as female work populates art sales and museum solo shows. As more and more investors buy female art we see a trend of balancing the male dominated art market. A shift in awareness of the social structure in the art market is taking hold as more collectors and museums back up woman’s art.
“MoMA’s 4th and 5th floors of chronologically organized modern and contemporary works will be completely changed out to highlight the Museum’s collection of women artists, which represents about 13% of their painting and sculpture departments. “Finding a way to tell the history of art through only women artists is a formidable exercise,” Temkin remarked.
What will the art world become now that the other half of humanity is being represented in its entirety?
Another institute is changing its view as the Brooklyn Museum has Judy Chicago as a permanent exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, which has its own wing dedicated to the Art by Woman.
said Wassily Kandinsky, “abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for color, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.” In other words, the painting must have the fundamental components of good design.
“All painting, no matter what you are painting, is abstract in that it’s got to be organized,” said David Hockney. Balance, vibration, weighting, form and eye control, mastery of colour, areas of visual excitement and areas of paucity, grey to rest the eye and gradations: These design elements, when intuitively understood, can create a stand-alone magic.
Hans Hofmann is considered by many critics to have been the greatest and most influential teacher of art in America in this century. Hans taught his Push and Pull theory in Providence, Mass at the Hawthorne school. Hofmann’s influence as an abstract teacher touched all artist who were part of the New York Expressionism movement.
In 1979 the barn was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is on Miller Hill Road, has an impressive view of town.The location of this relic you didn’t hear from me, but is worth the visit. The property is now privately owned.
How does a painter make sense of the cadmium season? The unusual vision perception of an artist makes it overwhelming. They see millions of green in one leaf where an untrained eye might see one green color. The brilliance of foliage painting is the ability to design the foliage palette, and get those foliage colors to behave!
The finest Abstract paintings come from when a painter is natural. These natural tendencies enhance unexpected brush strokes which produce rare abstract paintings. It is my belief that many abstract painters will produce a major painting within a ratio of ten average paintings to one masterpiece. These masterpiece paintings are so rare due to the naturalness and explosive brush stroke that is uncontrolled. De Kooning’s work has this quality of unexpected energy and brush stroke that is so rare in many of his pieces. It could be stated that major abstract work happens when the painter is ripe enough to allow the abstract magic to come through the brush.
In the opposite spectrum, realism is wonderful in a different way to which a realistic painting shows the craftsmanship and dedication to detail to develop an advanced realistic painting.
Kandinsky’s paintings did not feature any human figures; an exception is Sunday, Old Russia (1904), in which Kandinsky recreates a highly colourful (and fanciful) view of peasants and nobles in front of the walls of a town. Riding Couple (1907) depicts a man on horseback, holding a woman with tenderness and care as they ride past a Russian town with luminous walls across a river. The horse is muted while the leaves in the trees, the town, and the reflections in the river glisten with spots of colour and brightness. This work demonstrates the influence of pointillism in the way the depth of field is collapsed into a flat, luminescent surface. Fauvism is also apparent in these early works. Colours are used to express Kandinsky’s experience of subject matter, not to describe objective nature.
Saatchi picked one of my paintings for an online group showing of Kandinsky’s work. This collection was picked by Rebecca Wilson who is the Chief Curator and Director at the Saatchi Gallery, London, where she was the main person for the gallery’s online presence.

Steven Hawkins uses a massive single framework of physics that fully explains and links together all physical aspects of the universe in his Everything theory, which unites gravity and the quantum theory in a marriage that humans can understand without the high IQ of Hawkins.
Stephen is still an active part of Cambridge University and retains an office at the Department for Applied Maths and Theoretical Physics. His title is now Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology.
I am lucky enough to have one of my paintings in Steven’s officeEver at Cambridge. In secret I hope that some of his smarts comes to me through osmosis since he has one of my paintings. Tai Lopaz has a wonderful series of lectures called “The Grand Theory of Everything.” It is wonderful to see how osmosis, science, art and pod casting all work together in harmony.
I dwell in a lonely house I know
That vanished many a summer ago,
And left no trace but the cellar walls,
And a cellar in which the daylight falls,
And the purple-stemmed wild raspberries grow.
O’er ruined fences the grape-vines shield
I dwell with a strangely aching heart
The whippoorwill is coming to shout
It is under the small, dim, summer star.
They are tireless folk, but slow and sad,
Who knew that James Wyeth, son of realist painter Andrew Wyeth and grandson of illustrator N.C. Wyeth lives in the Rockland Maine area? What an interesting find. James was one of the major painter’s downtown in NYC with Warhol and Basquiat. James had his first one-man exhibition at Knoedler Gallery in 1966 at the age of 20. During his friendship with Warhol, the two shopped for antiques and taxidermy specimens together, attended art exhibition and gallery openings, discussed popular culture, and exchanged ideas. Warhol would often visit Wyeth’s farm in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. The three painters were ahead of their time and helped forged a new era in painting during the 60’s and 70’s.
Jana from the Carver Hill Gallery, in Rockland, Maine, has some fascinating history of the Wyeth family. She is also expansive in her curating skills as gallery owner of the Carver. Jana is a natural art historian and is a great supporter of modern art work in the area. I am so fortunate to have Jana showing my Birch series of paintings from the New England Expressionism group.
