John Emanuel
Orange Mono Figure: Contemporary Mixed Media Figurative Painting by John Emanuel

About the Item

Orange mono color from the studio of this very well collected British artist. Image 21" x 15" Originally from Bury, in the North of England, John Emanuel works in Porthmeor, Cornwall. He has received no formal art training, but his background as a decorator has served as an excellent foundation. His natural creativity inspired by a love of his subject - the figure and the figure embraced by the landscape, has developed into a consistent style.His drawings exhibit a clear, classical form and a simplicity of line which strengthens the relationship between the contours of the figure and the contours of the land. He loves the singular beauty of the Cornish coastline and the extraordinary light. The notion of forms sleeping beneath the earth are a recurring theme. John works in a variety of media: charcoal, gouache, oils and, more recently mixed media and lino-types, a method he learned from John Wells. His preferred medium is oil paint using hand and mould made papers laid down on archive quality board.

The artist writes, "Spring break, I was thinking about some of the highlights of my life. Spring break brings me back to my college Years, a time that offered endless possibilities. It was the first time I saw myself as a participant in the American dream and not just an observer". Francks F. Deceus was born in Cap-Haitien, Haiti, moving to NY when he was nine years old, where he has been living and creating ever since. Throughout his career, Francks has developed a unique modernist style where figures distilled to their pure features are layered in an abstract world evocative of our modern society.

  • Silhouettes_2022_Jane Maxwell, Female Figurative Collage, Mixed Media/Paper
    By Jane Maxwell
    Located in 326 N Coast Hwy. | Laguna Beach, CA
    JANE MAXWELL "Silhouettes" Mixed Media on Paper 33" x 31" Unframed ; 38.5" x 35.75" Framed Jane Maxwell’s artwork approaches the female body with an affectionate and celebratory feminist perspective. Extending her focus on female empowerment and fashion to swimwear, Maxwell’s silhouettes emerge from the dimensional, textural, backgrounds clad in the vestiges of paper ephemera. Maintaining texture through layering and building up the surface, the enigmatic quality of the works is reiterated by Maxwell’s use of ads and billboard materials that reveal words and phrases that tease us with alluring allusions. The anonymous figures have a definitive flair and attitude, keeping us at a distance as they swim and sunbathe, while pulling us further into their multi-dimensional narratives. Jane Maxwell's current work largely focuses on women, body image and the feminine ideal. Her collages are deeply layered works, combining color, texture and text that surround and become the female figure. Maxwell's artistic voice grew out of a passion for vintage materials, modern fashion and design - mingled with a deep fascination for pop culture and female icons. In the late 1990's she studied mixed media at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and at the Decordova Museum School in Lincoln, Massachusetts. She graduated with a BA in Literature from Middlebury College...
