I was searching through my usual suspects, doing some research(not my actual work…ooopsie) I stumbled upon Marian Bolognesi’s art work. It’s so easy to just keep clicking away when your scanning websites to find what’s next, especially for the blog. Every once in awhile you stumble across something that just makes you pause. Her strong sense of colour and the movement in her portraits permit spectators to feel the emotion portrayed on canvas. She strikes a chord with Chidi Okoye and African artist, who is also brave enough to use bold colours and is not afraid to paint outside of the lines. Her bio states “she hopes to capture beauty and emotion in her subjects without hindering the natural fluidity of her medium” and she has.
Her medium is watercolours and while reading her blog, she admits that she should be trying out other means of visual communications, oil, pencil…whatever floats her boat, but just can’t seems to move past the medium that’s been the kindest to her. Talk about love at first stroke(mind out of the gutter lady and gents).
Currently Bolognesi resides in Brooklyn New York and some of her pieces are for purchase on her web site www.marion-b.com .
Now that I got that off my chest check her out, see if you likey!
