The Art of Painting in the 21st Century Conference

The Art of Painting in the 21st Century is an annual conference, in
its seventh year, and is geared towards nurturing dialog on
contemporary painting and the shared ideas that define current trends
in the field. Many painters work alone, an isolated process that
deprives the artist of thriving debate until the work is shown. This
year’s conference will feature the world renowned painters Richard C.
Whitten,Mark Van Proyen, Chester Arnold, Melissa Chandon and Richard
Hull.
In an intimate setting, interact with top artists in a way not
possible elsewhere. UC Davis, home to artist Roy de Forest, Roland
Peterson, Wayne Thiebaud, and Robert Arneson, was instrumental in

Jillian Eldridge, Bright to Light to Black

The Rye Creative Centre Arts Programme launches the new year with an exhibition of new paintings from long time resident Jillian Eldridge.

Migrating figures move through landscapes, distilled down to a blurred image, separated from the viewer by an over painted grid.  Images of beauty which suggest a atmosphere of contemplation. Jillian recently held her first solo show in London, "Slipping Away", at the Londonewcastle Project Space in Shoreditch.

Geometry of the Absurd: Recent Paintings by Peter Halley

For over 30 years, Peter Halley’s paintings, with their characteristic Day-Glo color and distinctive faux-stucco surfaces, have engaged in variations on the same closed set of geometric forms, designated by the artist as prisons, cells, and conduits — “icons that reflect the increasing geometricization of social space in the world in which we live.”

Geometry of the Absurd: Recent Paintings by Peter Halley

Using distinctive materials including Day-Glo acrylics and Roll-a-Tex, Peter Halley’s paintings present variations of geometric forms that he and others have designated as prisons, cells, and conduits. With their visual associations with modern and contemporary architecture and design, electronic and digital models, and social systems, Halley’s paintings have long predicted—and continue to serve as metaphors for—a vast range of cultural phenomena. In particular, his intense and often dazzling combination of colors and connecting shapes may be perceived as allegories for many of the physical and conceptual elements of the Information Age.
