The new paintings created by Michael Carson have a timeless quality. His imagery transplants viewers to a world of intimate moments and reveals the emotional contact onlookers get from gazing at the human figure. The sublime beauty of Carson’s subjects is reminiscent of the “Truth, Goodness, and Beauty” advocated by Aristotle, which transcends the limitations of place and time. While timeless, the imagery in Carson’s paintings retains, however, a distinct, contemporary flair. Michael Carson’s show at Bonner David Galleries, opens during the holiday season, on December 13 and will be on display until January 13. His spectacular new work is guaranteed to make an impact on any viewer.

Michael Carson “Mixed Emotions”

CAR420

Bonner David Galleries is excited to announce the latest show, by internationally collected painter, Michael Carson. This year he will feature his characteristic figures in an array of media. In addition to his highly collected oil paintings, which have gained recognition and attention in the art community, he is expanding to use new techniques on metal and paper.

His process on metal, which he calls ‘unpainting,’ depicts his same poised and moody figures in a fresh and unique way. He first paints the metal with a coat of white paint, then sands away the layer of white to create the figures. He then finishes them by adding a special coating to help the metal rust in a way to add dimension to the shadows and figures.

Carson has also begun to create smaller original works on paper. Using a combination of charcoals, graphite and water, he creates black and white figure drawings with all the elements characteristic of Carson’s work.

This beautiful, must-see show opens on March 20th, with a special artist reception from 6-9 pm. The show will be hung in the gallery through April 10th.  This is a show you don’t want to miss, so mark your calendars and come see these incredible works for yourself.

 

Gail Morris “Western Exposures”

MOR487

Bonner David Galleries is excited to announce landscape artists, Gail Morris’ latest solo show, “Western Exposures.” Her work is characterized by the way she utilizes bold, vivid colors to create stark, minimalistic scenery, simulating the momentary emotions evoked by a first impression. This year, will feature paintings inspired by her recent travels, particularly throughout the West. In addition to viewing many beautiful scenes, she had the opportunity to take several trips in small planes, allowing her to gain a new perspective of the surrounding scenery. This bird’s-eye view is evident in several of her new pieces, as she finds beautiful and interesting ways to translate landscape to distinguished works of art.

Morris’ distinct style provides a fresh and sophisticated take on the western landscape, which she loves and adores.This show opens on March 6th, with a special artist reception from 6-9pm. The show will be on display in the gallery through March 17th, so make sure not to miss out.

Francis Livingston “Harmony in Variation”

Soho Slice cropThe art of Francis Livingston can be easily identified by his distinctly thick and impressionistic brush strokes. His paintings depict scenes from another time, often of places which no longer exist or have lost thier luster, transporting the view to a time when things seemed to be simpler.

This years show includes a wide variation of subject matter, both iconic and historic. However, the show maintains a collective harmony, as each paintings shares his distincive brush work and his harmonious color palattes. From scenes of New York store fronts,  to images of antique gas pumps and paintings of classic motorcycles, Livingston’s work captures the heart and the imagination.

Livingston’s show opens during artwalk on Thrusday, March 28, from 6-9pm and will hang through April 16, 2013. To see all his works, please visit our website, or click the following link to see the 2013 show catalog: FrancisLivingston2013HarmonyinVariation
