ARTIST’S STATEMENT

“How do I describe my style? I like to make realistic angles, perspective, light and shade using impressionistic abstract colors. I like to paint images that have cool stories behind them, many of them from personal experience. I realize that an artist can work on any painting indefinitely and it will never be ‘perfect’ so I decide a painting is finished when I can look at it and say, ‘That looks pretty cool.’ Thus my brand name Pretty Cool Art by cjo; and the obvious double entendre meaning, art which is both pretty & cool.” – CJO

 

Ryan Sponsler Art on “the Island” at Hyde Park South, April 11 – May 30

By | Art, South location | No Comments

There’s an area at Hyde Park South that, for our art display purposes, we call “the Island” — a wood-covered wall with booths on each side.  It’s ideal for smaller pieces that benefit from a more intimate viewing experience.

April 11 through May 30, 2015 we’ll be showing the imaginative work of Ryan Sponsler on the Island at Hyde Park South.  Ryan’s art reflects his belief that “a painting is an object in itself.”  Let’s just say he thinks out of the box.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

“A painting is an object in itself. It should not simply be used as a picture plane to hold the representation of an image. The entire structure of the painting; the materials, the paint, the colors, the forms, the textures, the composition all contribute to the unified presence of the work revealing a truer reality that lurks beneath the surface of everything. To demonstrate this I removed the picture plane making deconstructed paintings. Each work is an experiment which leads to new ideas to play around with and explore.”

To experience Ryan’s art, ask to sit in the Island area for an up close and personal view of this unique work!

Welcome the New Year With 60 Paintings from The Bunkhouse Gallery Artists

If you were a painter at a beautiful historic Texas hill country ranch B&B, enjoying delicious food and views of a flowing creek, rolling pastures, roaming cattle and winding country roads, what do you imagine you’d be inspired to paint?
