Artist Profile: Bradford J. Solamon

Bradford Solamon, 2017 Open Studio

Painting from a live sitter, a photograph, a forgotten artifact, or filming his artistic process while painting portraits of exceptional artists, are all energizing sources for Bradford J. Salamon. Tapping into a rich palette of information, the artist transforms the essence of direct painting through layers of skill, memories, emotions, and soulful passions. His art overflows with vibrant possibilities; a 21st century vision rendered through multiple and diverse processes, media, and tools.

Salamon is known for his figurative paintings and drawings of individuals and groups who engage in profound human scenarios. Currently, he expands his repertoire to include intimate portraits of vintage objects of yesteryear, as well as films about artists and the nature of creativity. Knowing that content cannot be conveyed in just one work of art, or expressed in only one medium, Salamon has found his personal solution. While portraiture is one of the oldest subjects, Salamon brings a newer dimension to the tried and true art. He renders in-depth views of each sitter, a biographical approach, a dialogue as he captures the many aspects of the sitter through multi-media in various sessions. Continue reading

Studio Visit: Francisco Alvarado

My work reflects life experiences through various colorful abstractions.
My inspiration comes from nature and my travels.
Using bold colors and patterns I am constantly exploring new territory.

Studio Dog with Francisco Alvarado, June 2017

I utilize both technology and hands on manipulation of acrylic paint, mixed media and digital imaging to create my work.

My series, Without Brushes, consists of drawings made on an IPad and later finished with a photo editing tool. These artistic explorations took me in a new direction of combining my paintings into a series of Digital Art.
