Pierre Raby, still life and urban landscape
It would be easy to simply classify Montreal-based artist Pierre Raby's work as "photorealistic"; but to do so, I think, is to miss the point.

Raby's paintings of cups, saucers, glassware and silver are marvelous wonderlands of light — reflected, refracted and bounced from one surface to the next in a cascade of color changes.

Raby's still life objects imbue one another with color, reveal themselves in contrasts and harmonies, and perform a complex interaction with dark backgrounds in the interplay of their lost and found edges.

He works in oils in a classic glazing technique, building his colors in thin layers of translucent paint.

In addition to still life, Raby paints urban landscapes and portraits, all with a refined approach and an eye for the actions of light.

Raby's primary web presence is his blog; there is also an older, though no longer updated, separate blog devoted to smaller works. You can also find a selection of his work on the site of the Miller Gallery.

Mineral Admiration is a new series of watercolor paintings by Vienna-based artist and illustrator Karina Eibatova. The juxtaposition of using a water-based medium to create images of stone is in line with Eibatova's desire to only create images from nature, an exploration that has lead to dozens of publications in magazines, newspapers, and journals around the world. These new paintings are available as prints in her online shop.
