Croquis Cafe

Acrylics on Arches, 57 x 76 cm, 22.5 x 30”


Croquis Cafe is an ode to Edward Hopper’s Sunlight In a Cafeteria. Strong lines are offset by soft figures. Unlike the loneliness of a Hopper scene, here we have activity and movement in an art cafe. “Croquis” is the French for sketch.

Acrylics on Arches, 57 x 76 cm, 22.5 x 30”

This is another in my Hopper series, this one inspired by Hopper’s Automat.  Strong lines contrast with fuzziness in the figures, overhead lighting with the darkness outdoors, the comparative focus of the indoor scene with the night, a feeling of having conquered the uncertainty of the darkness but with but a slim barrier of safety.

In A Hopper Cafe” is another in the series echoing the work of American artists Edward Hopper, this one inspired by Hopper’s ‘Chop Suey.  Strong lines contrast with fuzziness in the figures, hard lines with soft, outdoors with the indoors, the comparative focus of the indoor scene with the uncertainty of whatever lies beyond with but a slim barrier of safety.

 

We are social creatures. Our connections keep us informed. Yet we are also separate. We have to reach across space as well as other barriers, whether the barriers be based in culture, gender or other factors.

Peggys in A Lonely Room

Inspired by Edward Hopper’s Conference at Night, 1949. Strong contrasts, the powerful light of the window, two shimmering figures replace the dialogue of Conference. Out of focus, fuzzy dresses, perhaps made of fuzzy fabric, envelop the figures in a warmth protective against the rooms colder hues representing the starkness and loneliness of modern urban life.  SOLD

Peg in Scene from ‘Water’

I took a scene from The Shape of Water and placed fantasy images of my wife into the scene.  It’s moody yet comforting simultaneously.
