Behind the scenes: Peter Kuttner

One of the things that excites us most about this blog is being able share some of the behind-the-scenes happenings that make our gallery and frame shop tick.

Of course, we wouldn’t tick at all if we didn’t have the wonderful clientele we have, and the art is what brings a lot of people in, even if it’s just to browse. We’re pleased to present this first installment of a behind-the-scenes look at one of our artist’s processes.

Peter Kuttner’s work is always a breath of fresh air. His use of materials creates his signature aesthetic, and his technique in creating that aesthetic is fascinating. Click through the link below to see how he works:

Interior Decor: Still Life Art

Still life art is not as common as it used to be, but it still works in almost every environment. While the masters of old painted scenes depicting wealth and prosperity , modern still life artists turn everyday objects into masterful compositions. Below are the artists we represent that work in still life painting:

Dean Fisher

Mr. Fisher enjoys the challenge of arranging objects in a way that captures the compositions he sees in his mind’s eye. He uses desaturated color to just give a hint of tone. Even in his pieces with figures, there is often a nod to still life work, as seen in Figure Passing Through a Room below.

John Kelley

Whether it’s apples, teapots, or coffee accessories, John Kelley’s compositions are wonderful. His rich colors and realistic portrayal of objects would be beautiful in a kitchen, dining area, or breakfast nook.

Paul Weber

The works by Paul Weber are deceptively simple. His straight-on perspective and clean lines accentuate his skillful brushwork. These pieces work in any environment, and look excellent on light walls to make the deep, rich colors stand out.

Come by the gallery to see the works of these talented artists in person.
