Unconventional Animals by Federico Uribe

Federico Uribe Hunter (Wild Cat)
Bullet Shells, 13 x 27 x 8 in.
Federico Uribe (b. 1962) grew up in Bogota, Colombia. After graduating from the University of Los Andes in Bogota in 1988, Federico continued his study of academic painting in New York under Luis Camnitzer. He traveled to work and study in Cuba, Mexico, Russia, England, and landed in Miami, Florida in 2000 where he lives today. After years of struggling to be a painter, Federico realized that his calling was not to draw or paint on canvas, but instead to mold inanimate objects into vibrant images.  His current series of sculptural works uses commonplace materials such as colored pencils, electric cables or shoelaces,  to create whimsical figures and animal forms.  This particular group of works is made from ammunition, giving these symbols of violence a peaceful new purpose.

Iconic Nantucket

Robert Stark Creeks at Sunset, oil on panel, 13 x 28 inches
 
Cavalier Galleries is pleased to announce the arrival of new acquisitions by Robert Stark, currently on exhibit in our Nantucket Gallery (now open daily for the summer!). Please contact us for pricing or additional details. 
Robert Stark (1933 - 2014) was a luminist, painting principally in oil on canvas and panel. Luminism takes its name from light and refers to the subtle coloristic effects that sunlight, ever changing in intensity, produces on land, sea and in the sky. He saw the New England coast as a place where people have lived long and worked hard and feel part of the land and sea. He attended Nantucket schools and after graduating from Nantucket High School, served in the Navy during the Korean War. His work is represented in numerous private and corporate collections in the US, Canada, Ireland, Great Britain, Germany, France, China and the Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown, N.Y. His now iconic red catboat paintings have been avidly collected by Nantucket  island visitors from around the world.  Stark took great pride in his family’s place in the centuries-old New England tradition of making the land and sea one’s own.  With his refined style and unique voice, Stark translated the land and sea he inhabited into unforgettable works of art.

American Master Jamie Wyeth pays tribute to a Banana Split

Jamie Wyeth (American, b. 1946),  Banana Split, 2016
Watercolor and gesso on handwove paper, 28 x 22 in.

 
A celebrated contemporary realist painter, Jamie Wyeth is also the third-generation of the famed American artistic dynasty, following in the footsteps of Andrew Wyeth and N.C. Wyeth. Though many of his works reflect the eternal beauty of the Maine landscape, as do many works by Andrew Wyeth, Jamie’s work is distinguished by his focus on the enduring dignity of domestic animals and wildlife, as well as depicting important individuals and cultural events in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Jamie Wyeth has created portraits of political and entertainment figures, including President John F. Kennedy, Rudolf Nureyev, Andy Warhol, and Arnold Schwarzenegger; charcoal drawings that documented the unfolding drama of the Senate Watergate hearings; pictorial reporting of NASA space launches and splashdowns; and imaginative pictures for contemporary novelist Stephen King's ABC-TV miniseries Kingdom Hospital, to name a few.

Wyeth spends a substantial portion of his time on the Maine coast, where the landscape and local inhabitants -- animal and human -- serve as subjects for his work. He paints primarily in a combination of mediums such as gouache, watercolor, and oil, having never developed an affinity for the egg tempera medium favored by his father, Andrew Wyeth. Banana Split focuses on one of Jamie Wyeth’s favored subjects, the seagull, as he approaches a decadent ice cream treat.  With compelling imagery, strong contrasts, and tactile surfaces, Jamie Wyeth's works are always marked with a portrait-like intensity, whether they depict people, animals, architecture, objects, or the continually unfolding interaction between mankind and nature.

Jamie Wyeth’s works can be found in private collections world-wide, as well as the permanent collections of prestigious museums including the National Gallery of Art and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
