Frank Bell

I am especially a fan of the determined, painterly style of Kate Meehling’s work and I have been fortunate to observe her unique skills during Colony workshops. I also admire Scott Payne’s work, especially his subtle palette and his seemingly effortless technique. I also admire the work of other artists. I find that I frequently revisit the drawings of J.S. Sargent, Gustav Klimt, Kathe Kollwitz, and Susan Lyons. Often when I struggle with issues of composition, line, and color, I revisit the work of Liu Yamine, David Wells, Elizabeth Murray, Euan Uglow, Tamara de Limpicka, and Egon Schiele. I also admire the complicated simplicity of illustrations by Lucle Gayot and Malika Farve. Finally, I sincerely thank Jo Rich-Vadas for this opportunity, for her suggestions and encouragement through the years, and for her willingness to offer thoughtful, unvarnished criticism of my work. The show opens Saturday, July 15 from 5:00-8:00PM and will be available for viewing until August 12th.
