Bird Girl (1998)
Colette Calascione
Oil on Copper

Size: 3.5

Traditional painting

I post links to a fair bit of illustration and digital art, but this time around I'd like to share a sampling of artists who work with good old-fashioned brushes and canvas and paint to create some lovely, and odd, things.

I was introduced today to the work of Colette Calascione, and was immediately taken. I can only describe her paintings as a graceful, eerie blend of surrealism, Northern Renaissance, magic realism, and wry humor. I especially liked those paintings whose spare, clean lines and odd juxtapositions reminded me strongly of Magritte.
