Kristy Chettle Art

American, b. 1982
Kristy Chettle (b. 1968, Bellflower, CA) is a dynamic abstract artist who paints using only her hands. She works in a sort of “focused frenzy”, painting expressive works deep with bold colors in complex layers. After earning a degree in Art & Design, she began her professional career as a graphic designer and now seeks to deconstruct the confines of modern media. As a California native, she is compelled to explore themes such as nature, metamorphosis, and personal growth, which are reflective of the ever-changing environment of the region. Using a vibrant and sometimes unexpected color pallet, Chettle’s work is expressive featuring heavy strokes and dramatic motion. Using multiple layers she creates a complex, almost tactile surface, inviting the viewer to dive into the painting and explore its depths. The artist sees her style as a liberation from the rigid rules of marketing, yet she intuitively implements the disciplines she was taught. Working primarily with complimentary colors, her paintings are lively and raw with color vibrating throughout from layers deep within the work. Kristy has been a professional abstract artist for many years. Her artwork hangs in the homes of those who appreciate art that reflects expressive motion and color with thick layers of texture and meaning. Inspired by some of the greats—Picasso and Van Gogh in particular—she aspires to replicate the depth and life that their works portray.

Thee girl in the old House - 21st Century Contemporary Oil Painting of a girl
By Marten Huitsing
Located in Nuenen, Noord Brabant
Marten Huitsing The girl in the old house 70 x 45 cm ( frame is include, with frame the size is 80 x 55 cm) Oil on wood panel The paintings of this artist have been part of the collection of Galerie Bonnard since his graduation (2010) at the Classical Academy of Groningen. Huitsing has quickly become successful, his style, craftsmanship and choice of subject appeals to many people. Yet Marten, he says, does not want to repeat himself. He is always looking for the way of painting that suits him at that moment. The sympathetic artist got national fame because he beautifully portrayed a famous Dutch TV presentator Mart Smeets in the 'Paint the stars' program. Honest, very recognizable and with a narrative painting. Mart Smeets was overwhelmed, praising his comments. Rightly so! From that moment. Marten Huitsing's work has gained increasing popularity, he is an annually returning artist at the renowned PAN and he can hardly cope with the demand for new work. The work that the artist has made for our gallery that there is always a balanced composition. In the collection there is one painting that is directly an ode to an older master, both often with Marten Huitsing. He did that before. In this case an ode to the French painter William Bougeureau...
