Jason Fairchild based in Chicago, USA, is a modern artist that currently uses painting as the fastest and best way to get his message out there. Women are the center of the art of Jason Fairchild: or to be more accurate women and the unique forms of space that surround them.
The women he portrays are not the everyday women we see on the street waiting for buses or shopping in the neighborhood supermarket, they are sexually charged nude or semi-nude figures that seem part lover, part mother, part dream girlfriend, part wife, part earth goddess. In his art Eros meets encounters the mysteries of nature; swirling seas and skies, as well as vast, usually barren, landscapes are a common motif.
Gabriel Gross. We can sense all the depth which marks the vital and creative process of Gabriel Gross, an artist in constant dialogue with the different scopes of contemporary art, and who above all is interested in a presence that is in his intense path, in his neofigurative periods, as well as in his abstract research.
Those of us, who have had the privilege to visit Gabriel Gross’s atelier and house, have found there not only the testimonies of works of art committed to the humankind, with its history, with our contemporary, but also with the tangible footsteps of a passionate experimentation, vigorous, and always renewed with the most unusual techniques, without leaving aside any of the possibilities offered to the artist of the XXI century, immersed as we are in what bad or good we call it the post modernity, the most advanced technologies of the visual arts.
Elle Nicolaï. A heart beat. It is one pattern that we all feel. Through the heart of each of us love flows both primal and eternal. Touching the sacred space of eternal love leads to wondrous worlds that can be explored, viewed and understood, and as this is done, you will facilitate your own healing, at a deeper subconscious level. Inside of that space deep, within the universal heart, the love of existence flows. It is a vibration that is timeless and shapeless yet with clear form. It is waiting to be explored, understood and coaxed from the source. From this deep wellspring of cosmic awareness come natural archetypes. They flow past our mind’s eye and pause. Waiting to be discovered, found and eventually to be painted. Their fulfillment is found in the healing of our spirit, essence, and souls.

Jacqui Morgan. When Jacqui received her BFA from Pratt, she entered a world without any female illustrators. She with Barbara Nessim and Lorraine Fox who passed away very young, were the first and only working female illustrators. During the heyday of the psychedelic, she designed and illustrated the iconic Electric Circus Poster and went on to create more iconic images for the American Optometric Association, Sansui, Scott Printing, Celanese, Exxon, and 7 UP Billboards. Unique covers for American Artist Magazine, Mac Millan Books, Print Magazine and Cosmopolitan along with album covers for RCA, ads for DeBeers diamonds and animated commercials for Burlington Mills and General Mills were among her achievements. She always loved science fiction and illustrated a few anthologies for young readers.
After Morgan received her MA from Hunter College, CUNY, she studied realistic oil painting with Sharon Sprung a student of Harvey Dinnerstein and then applied these findings to watercolor. While far more difficult to handle than oils, watercolor is easier to control than dyes which stain the paper and cannot be lightened, only bleached. The comfort with dyes came when working for two years designing textile patterns right after Pratt graduation. Watercolor had the same seductive transparency. The first illustration of this no line, more painterly, approach was the poster for the Tap Dance Kid Broadway show.
Ione Citrin. Ione’s art has shown nationally since 1998 when, after years of world travel, a successful television, radio, theatre and film career in the performing arts, she decided to focus her richly diverse talents on the visual arts. Ione’s artistic expression, creativity, and passion for communication have resulted in numerous awards for her painting, sculpture, mixed media, and assemblage.
Ione is an avant garde artist whose artistic expression takes fantastic shape through her diverse oil and watercolor paintings, bronze sculptures, found object collages and mixed media assemblages. Her contemporary paintings and sculptures range from abstract to realistic to impressionistic – all visionary interpretations from her imaginative soul.
Ione uses only one name but a variety of styles to soothe her wild imagination. A native of Chicago, she is a former television star and commercial voice-over artist. Her art is as original as she is – bold, colorful and highly decorative.
