Lets Meet in Real, Painting by Robert Bubel

In this pleasing oil painting by Polish artist Robert Bubel, a woman walks through an open art gallery towards a group of paintings hanging on the wall. Paint drips from the canvases, as if to express their fresh vibrancy. The title of the piece is provocative; is it addressed to the woman in the painting? or is it an invitation to view the art in its natural format: hanging on a wall, rather than as a digital image.

Not My Fathers Oldsmobile

Not My Father’s Oldsmobile by Steven Boksenbaum. 8 x 10 x 1

In Not My Father’s Oldsmobile, a classic car passes through an intersection. The dynamic radial composition invites the observer into a scene typical of contemporary American life. Yet, the muted colors suggests a certain emotional distance from the scene, as if to warn us away from nostalgia: this is not your father’s Oldsmobile, and it is only passing through.
