Elegant Adaptations In Oil

BY DAVID VICKERY
@ VOL 20 ON JAN 31, 2014

David Vickery is a resident of Cushing, where he has been working for the past 23 years, finding inspiration in local scenes and creating oil paintings with an eye for the imperfect, quirky, and sometimes elegant adaptations we’ve made in order to live here.  His process is to carry a camera wherever he goes and photograph any scene that moves him, then contemplate and carefully re-compose the photo in the studio and paint it.

Painted Through the Lens of Life

BY OLIVIA STARK
@ VOL 7 ON APR 05, 2019

Two dimensional art often occurs through a process of discovery combined with release. Finding the perfect color, tone and spatial composition is key to expressing thoughts and ideas in a way that can be felt by others. Olivia Stark is dedicated to her work in this way and it shows through her abstract paintings which are filled with color, poise and clarity. She walks us through recent works that draw directly from her personal experiences and emotional processing of the world around us.
