Gioacchino Passini, paintings

Artist Gioacchino Passini takes an ordinary blank canvas and transforms it into a larger-than-life garden of dewdrop-covered roses. The petals appear soft and supple, an effect that is heightened by the flowers’ brilliant coloring. Passini’s large-scale paintings not only offer audiences an in-depth look at the beauty of nature, but they’re also a way for...

Hyper-realistic paintings by Matt Story

Hyper-realistic paintings by Matt Story

Matt Story studied art from an early age and demonstrated a unique skill for rendering verisimilitude, or hyper-realism. “I was lauded for ‘photo-realistic’ technique, but I was never after that, really, after what a camera impartially sees, because there’s so much more there, captured only by the human filter of memory.

Irina Kupyrova, paintings

Irina Kupyrova’s leisurely narratives take place on the borderline between the indoors and the outdoors, in the frame of the suggested window.
