Join us Tuesday, January 10th at Chadra Mezza and Grill, one of Fort Worth’s most-loved restaurants. Complimentary light Mediterranean hors d’oeuvres will be served, with a cash bar. The restaurant will be open for dinner.
Nathan Madrid – “My work is representational of the everyday objects we encounter; the figure, a sink, or a tall building that can be transposed to the viewer. The paintings are measured by the emotion and conversation it leaves with the viewers inviting them back to discover more. The technical aspect of my work is a growing process, continually gaining knowledge of my environment. Seeking to expand, I draw from old masters and current figure painters that have inspired me to document the realistic nature of my subject. Continually refining the process, learning, and allowing the painting to open the dialogue with the viewer.”
Eric Stevens – “I am interested in the relationships between complex detail and simple composition, classical rendering of form and modern reduction. I think there is an interesting tension there. A lot of my work describes simple organic forms, like flowers. These paintings often use vibrant true-to-life color to depict the subjects, while their settings take the subjects out of their expected contexts. The perspective and scale furthers this, isolating the subject, and bringing the viewer closer.”
