Aesthetica Art Prize: 5 Painters to Inspire You

Aesthetica Magazine sent this email to their subscribers on May 27, 2024.


 
Portraiture. Still Life. Photorealism. Painting is a varied
and experimental genre. Here, five Aesthetica Art Prize
artists play with the boundaries of the medium, introducing viewers to new perspectives on history, identity and emotions.

 
 
 
Stephen Johnston
Mortality was a common theme for the Old Masters, with their scenes of gluttony undercut by reminders of the grave. In Johnston's hyperrealistic still lifes, fruit slowly decays in tightly packed jars.
 
 

 
 
Jingyi Wang
For Jingyi Wang, cacti signify the "intimate intersubjectivity" of humanity. Bold colours and surreal plant-beings create a playful
space for dialogue and collaboration between people and nature.

 
 

Leanna Moran
These compositions explore the cyclical nature of human life, with circles representing notions of eternal totality. These dreamlike, celestial expanses are contemplative, recording time passing.
 

 

Day Bowman
Bowman's gestural paintings explore British landscapes that are passed through, ignored or deleted from the collective memory. Viewers embark on a journey through these forgotten spaces.
 
 
 
Christopher Stott
Stott's clean representational oil paintings transform vintage objects into icons. Books, clocks and typewriters have built-in narratives that viewers must slow down in order to fully discover.
