“For me, the process of creating beings with a scene that I feel carries a certain energy and evokes an emotion. I find myself drawn to subject matter with rich colors or intriguing light. The vignettes of everyday life inspire me to paint, regardless of whether it’s a landscape, figurative work, cityscape or portrait,” says Michelle Usibelli. “It is my primary goal to have each artwork I create resonate with energy and the poetry of light.”

works to be intimate paintings that tell a small story of the subject’s personality. “I would like to make a connection with the human condition,” he says. Bostic has always been drawn to fantasy art, which is a combination of myth and reality. “I am interested in using this style to create portraits of genre scenes. I use color and light source in my compositions to depict an imaginative environment and existence for the figures,” he says.

E.L. Stewart says her current figurative work is a homecoming of sorts. “Early

on, I painted much more of a realist figure, partially because of my anatomy training to be an illustrator. In my mid-career, I immersed myself in expressionism and experimentation,” she says. “The painting that I do now is a convergence of these.

the United States, she was trained by her father and other masters in Germany; this dual consciousness and international identity allows her work to transcend culture. Her paintings have many layers of forms, washes of color and traces of geometric objects. Her work is extremely pleasing to the senses and intense at the same time. She is represented by Gallery Russia and Jones & Terwilliger Galleries, which will have a solo show for her in February.
