Alice Browne is an abstract painter who plays with the relationship between the object and the representation of the object. Browne's work asks the viewer to see what it means to look at an object and what it is like to have the object look back within a framed space depicted in the painting.

We are sure some people have had actual nights like this where the city lights become a bit of a blur. Or quite blurry. Or plain spinning. We recommend if you have a bit of a soft stomach, than some of the beautiful works by Alexandra Pacula might throw you in a bit of a tailspin. She calls it "visual intoxication."

Channeling the classic eras of Romantic, Renaissance, and almost with a touch of Rembrandt thrown in, painter Falk Gernegross creates both nudes and everyday scenes in a flat, colorful, realistic style. The artist's work is haunting, disturbing even, but hard to look away.

We have been meaning to show the fine art works of Laurie Hogin on the site before, and we thought why not go for the bizarre and beautiful, albeit a bit creepy to start off the Tuesday.

We know that Chinese artist Liu Bolin gets a lot of recognition for his blending into public objects by painting himself series, but we would like to say that Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes' work of painting herself into various flowering wallpaper designs is quite impressive. At times, you can almost lose her in the backdrops she chooses.

Garth Weiser is a New York-based painter who received his MFA from Columbia. His paintings evolve from sculptural conception, sometimes beginning with a three dimensional sketch that leads to thick impasto grids and patterns on the canvas that adopts a sculptural quality itself.

Sometimes we wonder when we see work like Houston-based Kevin Peterson, with his ability to recreate photorealistic quality paintings with graffiti included, what sort of graff artist he would be? Obviously, we can only assuem he would have some success given these painitings.
