News-Antique.com - Oct 16,2013 - BOSTON - After unveiling a recent comprehensive site redesign this week, The Curatorís Eye (www.CuratorsEye.com) is pleased to highlight its flourishing Modern and Contemporary Art category. This category features hundreds of highly desirable objects of art and design from dealers based all over the world, ranging from Southeast Asian paintings to Fine Art Photographs to wood furniture of groundbreaking British design.
Chinese Innovation: Square Word Calligraphy
The offering begins with a new piece by Xu Bing, a Square Word Calligraphy Scroll. This ink painting is a new kind of writing, almost a code, designed by the artist to demystify calligraphy and reward the Westerner's engagement. It is a system whereby English words are written in the format of a square, so as to resemble Chinese characters, using the concept of classical Chinese stroke order, and this work features a poem originally written by Wang Wei (701-761), titled In Reply to Pei Ti.
American Light: Stephen Scott Young Watercolor
Also available is an exquisite painting by American watercolorist Stephen Scott Young, Dressed For School. Inspired by the work of Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, and Andrew Wyeth, Young creates highly finished, detailed figurative subjects. In the early 1980's, Young made his first trip to the Bahamas where he discovered the crisp, bright light that has become the hallmark of his paintings today.
Contemporary Realism: Doug Brega, Barbara Parker
Two paintings in the contemporary realism tradition underscore the impressive, technically adept pieces being created today. Barbara Parkerís acrylic painting, Sky, and Doug Bregaís Lighthouse Hill, Study watercolor are among the fine works available, and Doug is one of the most prominent contemporary American realist painters. Bregaís portraits, New England homes, sailboats, and old weathered barns are beautifully rendered. Seeking a reality beneath what appears to the eye, Doug reveals to the viewer a glimpse into the essence of his subject that lies under the surface.
Asian Angels: Pairoj Karndee
From across the world, Thai artist Pairoj Karndeeís distinctive work titled Hong Kong Angel makes a strong statement. This work is the latest in Pairoj's series of "Asian Angels" where he is looking at the angel within the Asian woman. Sometimes beautiful, sometimes beguiling, sometimes avenging, but always arresting. Indeed, Hong Kong Angel displays Pairoj's technical brilliance, and at the same time highlights his superb use of colour. Pairoj is one of the fastest rising stars of the Asian art world. His works display notable originality and elegance, have been exhibited in Beijing, Shanghai, Bangkok, and San Francisco, and are in collections throughout the world.
American Abstraction: Ilya Bolotowsky
For the collector more inclined towards abstraction, Russian-American painter Ilya Bolotowskyís Untitled oil comes to the market out of a private collection, which it joined as a gift from the artist. Born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1907, Ilya Bolotowsky became a leading early 20th-century painter in abstract styles in New York City. His work, a search for philosophical order through visual expression, embraced Cubism and Geometric Abstraction and was greatly influenced by Dutch painter
