Fielden Harper, Urban Mosaic
Fielden Harper, From the Pier, Acrylic on Canvas, 30 x 36 in., 2013
In her most recent body of work, artist Fielden Harper expands her Santa Monica landscape focus to include the larger urban area of Los Angeles. Harper’s architectural painting technique serves as a visual record of the growth and development she encounters on a daily basis. In a city as vast and multifaceted as Los Angeles, Harper says that she feels it is impossible to capture its essence all at once as it comes to her in small, powerful bursts of color and energy. Painting cityscapes and graceful freeway patterns on wood as well as traditional canvas surfaces, Harper’s work echoes her environment. Webs of skyscrapers and varied residential landscapes highlight the equally varied communities of Harper’s experience. Harper’s work reveals the city’s ever-changing fragments, stitching these images together into an urban mosaic.

Alain Rogier, Complexity in Search of Serenity

Alain Rogier, Untitled, Acrylic on Canvas, 45 x 52 in., 2013
Artist Alain Rogier’s current work continues to examine the depth and complexity of the human condition, in search of beauty, serenity and solace. Rogier’s work seeks to illustrate a positive view of humanity amidst a world that constantly challenges us. While bringing to bear a personal history as the child of Holocaust survivors who met at Auschwitz, Rogier’s work explores art as a tool for understanding and its ability to transcend and illuminate ideas. Abstract shapes and lines engulf Rogier’s large scale canvases. Using a vibrant, high-contrast color palette and bold, active brushstrokes, the artist’s compositions reject passivity, demanding dialogue and engagement with the viewer.
