moleskine experiments! I’ve finally built up the courage to push my colour usage further than i have before. It’s really interesting seeing how colour changes can make so much difference in indicating depth and form.

"I liked the idea of living in a city - any city, especially a strange one - liked the thought of traffic and crowds, of working in a bookstore, waiting tables in a coffee shop, who knew what kind of odd, solitary life I might slip into? Meals alone, walking the dogs in the evening; and nobody knowing who I was."
#I always thought this too

is an American painter. She studied Painting at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah.
Virginia Broersma’s work explores the concept of allure in terms of the human form. Built of rough and loose marks that congeal into something very precise, her paintings have an intensity that is formed not only from the image, but from the action of painting itself. Though it deviates from the human form, her imagery is complicated by associations one may have with the body. She is interested in how even a distant representation of a person can be conflated with measurements of perfection, beauty and the ideal.

Agnes Toth's Fragmented Paintings
Saatchi Art, Facebook
You might notice that English painter Agnes Toth’s work looks incomplete. Although logic entices us to notice the missing links, Toth’s techinque aspires to find the threshold between abstract and figurative painting. Her colorful, intentionally half-finished, realistic paintings are the result.
Toth began to create these incomplete paintings in 2008. This method gave her a sense of freedom — the possibility to not feel obligated to fill in the canvas from one corner to the other. The incompleteness of her work also derives from her life philosophy, one that aims towards working and living at a slower pace. “This is what I aim to achieve with my paintings,” she says, “to get back to that harmony and contemplation, to celebrate beauty and serenity.” For Toth, one of the purposes of painting is a meditation exercise, one that requires full concentration on her creative intentions.
In a sense, her pieces provide the viewer with the possibility to become more contemplative. In trying to take everything in, we get lost in the various colorful, fragmented pieces in the hope of somehow putting it all back together.
