New to The Artist Directory

New artists join the Hamptons Art Hub's Directory on a rolling basis. Spotlighted in this edition of "Discover Art & News" are two artists who are new to our Artist Directory.

Michele D'Ermo

“Deluge” by Michele D’Ermo. Oil on linen, 36 x 24 inches.

“Deluge” by Michele D’Ermo. Oil on linen, 36 x 24 inches.

.

Painting is Michele D'Ermo's response to the timeless beauty that is observed within the natural world. Art and nature both rely on impulse allowing her work to be uninhibited and unfiltered reaching for what lies beneath the surface. A central theme in her work is the interweaving of memory and imagination. Rather than rendering an actual moment in time, she evokes the feeling of a memory and paints an image that is both timeless and placeless.

Inspired by the iconic multiform paintings of Rothko as well as the atmospheric landscapes of Turner, her preference for the fluctuating states of water and sky infuse her paintings with a feeling of tension and release. Her gestural brushwork is spontaneous rather than studied, appearing effortless as she builds up layers of paint. Her surfaces appear transparent, almost luminous. The lasting image created is atmospheric in nature without sacrificing the structural clarity and composition of the painting.

"STILL" by Christine Matthai, 2016. Photography, 34 x 50 inches.

"STILL" by Christine Matthai, 2016. Photography, 34 x 50 inches.

.

Christine Matthäi's "Light and Sea" series are abstract visual meditations derived from the interplay of air, light and water and the shifting of colors and shapes from form to formlessness. The original photographic images are digitally transformed so that colors and shapes turn into abstractions of the source image: the brushing light lines on water surfaces turn into metaphorical visual rhythms, repetitive strolls on lines and dots. The resulting works convey feelings of losing oneself in space with no sense of time and place similar to the practice of meditation.
