New paintings by Heidi Lewis Coleman

I feel very fortunate to be an artist during such a challenging time.  Staying at home gives artists an opportunity to express themselves and keep busy, while doing something they love.  I’ve been working on smaller pieces, using colors that find their inspiration in the flowers that are blooming outside my window.  Despite the concerns we are all facing, Spring brings with it so much beauty and rejuvenation!  My artwork as a result is very expressive, using bold strokes to capture my interpretation of our changing season. If interested in these pieces please contact Barbara Nair, Spectrum Art Gallery Director, at barbara@spectrumartgallery.org. Also visit Ms. Coleman’s online gallery page to view her other pieces in our inventory which you may order online or make an appt. to see at the gallery.

  • Heidi Lewis Coleman

Heidi Lewis Coleman is an abstract artist whose work reflects an ongoing exploration into the aesthetics of using language in art.  While most conceptual artists incorporate text into their work as a means of analyzing popular culture or for making political and social commentary, Coleman’s work focuses on developing text as a visual design element.

The artist creates mixed media pieces and steel sculpture which incorporate her own stylized abstract writing.  Originally, her invented languages were painted on paper, cut out and then applied to a painted canvas.  As the work has evolved,  Coleman has continued to develop new characters by deconstructing and reconstructing her original text, creating languages which are visually richer and more complex.  More recently, She has extended this process by incorporating “Mandalas” into her art, circular forms which were originally used by the Hindus and Buddhists as focal points for meditation.

When describing this body of work, Coleman says:

 “For me, the languages have an ancient, almost mystical quality. I believe that because my artwork communicates in the abstract, individual viewers are not forced to translate it specifically, allowing them to connect with the energy of each piece in ways that are personal and unique.”

Coleman studied art at Parsons and the New York School of Design, where she graduated with highest honors.  Her artwork has been included in several private collections.  She is a juried member of the National Association of Women Artists, the Women’s Caucus for Art and the Silvermine Guild of Artists. Coleman is an award winning artist who has exhibited widely in galleries and museums across the country, including the Mattatuck Museum, the Hammond Museum and the Katonah Museum of Art.

Meet my new paintings by Ted Genard

Meet The Queen of Spades, 20×20, oil on canvas, $900

I have seen some great paintings of tattooed models and thought well maybe.  I found this woman who I thought just had a great “look” overall and she agreed to pose for me. I had a concept in mind and asked her;  what is your favorite queen in cards?  She said spades.  I told her she would be the Queen of Spades. Now in case anyone has never noticed, all the queens hold a flower.  Predominately a yellow one some with red as well.  The Queen of Spades also holds a scepter.  I did her skin illustrations with a 10/0 brush.  It is truly hers and a highly detailed representation.  I’d never worked at such detail before. It was both challenging and fun.  Meet “The Queen of Spades”  20×20 oil on canvas.  This piece is for sale through Spectrum Art Gallery.  If interested please request price by emailing Barbara Nair, Gallery Director, at barbara@spectrumartgallery.orgAlso visit Mr. Genard’s online gallery page to view his other pieces in our inventory which you may order online or make an appt. to see at the gallery.

My Just Finished Painting by Mark Rich

Infographic Arcade, 48 x 48, oil paint, wax, oil pastel, pencil on canvas, $1,350

Galleries are closed, shows are cancelled, the future for making art looks dim. This painting, in spite of Corona, reaches out with optimism. Too old for video games i watched my kids and their friends take great refuge in them. Inside the game was a safe space, everything is bright, the icons blink, the music tinkles and pixelized trinkets reward success. This piece is for sale through Spectrum Art Gallery.  If interested please request price by emailing Barbara Nair, Gallery Director, at barbara@spectrumartgallery.orgAlso visit Mr. Rich’s online gallery page to view his other pieces in our inventory which you may order online or make an appt. to see at the gallery.
