Heir to Warhol and the 1960’s counter-culture, Todd Pierce advocates that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” His Pictogram Art attempts to capture today’s popular culture through universal iconography.

A pictogram is a pictorial symbol that conveys a word, a phrase or an idea. Since the dawn of humanity, pictographs have been used as the earliest known form of writing. They usually transcend culture and can help speakers of different languages communicate more effectively. Better known as “icons” in contemporary communication, pictograms have been popularized through the use of computer and phone technology.

Todd Pierce has embraced these modern symbols and has turned them into universal pop art. He purposely takes these emblems out of their original intended context and gives them new meaning. Pierce resolutely wants his art to be a bridge between languages, cultures, social status, and age.

Claudia Hartley’s

paintings are incredibly “happy.” They are also undoubtedly colorful. Her landscapes are an unrestrained celebration of life and nature. Originally from the South, Claudia Hartley now lives in Arizona and paints the desert. Her work has the structure of traditional, idealized landscapes, but with an entirely contemporary aesthetic (staccato brushworks and non naturalistic, expressive colors).

Hartley considers herself a fauvist, synthesizing the techniques of pointillism and post-impressionism. She mostly applies her masterful skills to depict landscapes of the Southwest. Her paintings are an hyphen between impressionism and abstraction in which color is completely set free. In tune with nature, Claudia Hartley uses intense color as a vehicle for representing mood, light, and space. She has mastered the emotional potency of color, and her paintings convey both passion and happiness.

Claudia Hartley is featured in the February issue of the American Art Collector and Phoenix Home & Garden magazine.
