I love it when I make an art discovery. When my thirst for visual inspiration gets quenched. Today it was wonderful paintings by Jeremy Lipking...
This is such an amazing painting, I can almost feel the presence of the model. She feels so real. Lipking is a contemporary realist artist with a penchant for past times, romance and mystery...
From his biography:
"In a remarkably short period of time, Jeremy Lipking has emerged as one of the country's premier realist artists. His talent, which rivals that of the late nineteenth century painterly realists such as John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla and Anders Zorn, is outstanding for a painter of any age. It is all the more remarkable since he is only thirty years old. Like these great painters of the past, Lipking is a virtuoso artist. His canvases convey the magical aura of convincing imagery emerging out of a field of paint."
Wouldn't you agree with me that his paintings are just extraordinary?
Wouldn't you want to be painted by Lipking?
So sensual, so beautiful.
So intimate, peaceful and silent.
It's strange to call a painting silent, but that's the word that comes to me while looking at his paitings. Beautifully silent.
Such gorgeous use of colors, the objects and figures just jump out of the canvas.
