You have made those neutrals sing! (And my mouth water!)
Dear Julian - I like your individual objects very much--a garlic, a peeled orange, the chunk of cheese. I question I address in my Aesthetic Realism Critical Inquiry class in NYC is: What is the relation of an individual object to the reality outside the object. Is it like our indivicual relation to the world outside us? Some question right? But I think good art depends on the deep answer, the technically shown answer to that question. Thanks for your objects. DK
lovely. you've taken bread and cheese and made it both mysterious and dramatic and still humble and approachable.
Julian: I love your commentaries and, of course, love your paintings more.
Just beautiful Julian!
Wonderful contrast of textures in a soft light and a good idea about the champagne.
One of the things I appreciate is your control of light and shadow. The shadow and control of values between the bread and cheese is masterful. From you I expect no less and am seldom dissapointed. Thank you for your talent.
