Lisa Breslow

Loving these cityscape and still life paintings created by Lisa Breslow.  The New York-based artist was born in Long Island and studied at the School of Visual Arts and Art Students League on a Merit Scholarship.  The impressionistic oil paintings depict New York City streets through changing seasons with just the right blend of realism and abstraction.  They are not literal portrayals but rather an atmospheric presentation of the bustling city through mood, energy and light.

Andy Wooldridge

Andy Wooldrige is an established Canadian artist born in Egypt and raised in England.  He completed four years of formal training at Southhampton College of Art and Design.  Glowing whites and contrasting soft deep blacks are central dramatic elements in his work.  On Kurbatoff Gallery he says this about his work:

“I treat my canvas like a stage set, with simplified shapes and forms, deliberately placed to produce an artificial landscape. I try to convey the feeling we have when watching the curtain rise in a darkened theatre auditorium, when, for that brief moment, we suspend disbelief and allow ourselves to be transported into an alternative reality.”
