Homage to Earle-Deep Shadows

Eyvind Earle’s work inspired many artist during his lifetime and continues today.  As a young boy at age 10, he started his life’s work as an artist.  Although he passed in 2000, at the age of 84, his work lives on. You have seen his work, if not original pieces, certainly prints and limited editions, and even greeting cards.  He was a prolific artist creating unique paintings, sculptures, scratchboards, watercolors and drawings that have not been publicly seen or exhibited. Eyvind Earle Publishing LLC, under the specific instruction of the late Eyvind Earle, will continue the legacy of the artist, promoting and introducing new serigraphs and books through galleries worldwide. To learn more about this amazing artist go to: http://www.eyvindearle.com/Bio.aspx

You can see how he inspired contemporary Colorado artist, Clifford T. Bailey.  The style and mood of Bailey’s work  might make you think they studied together.  We are very excited to be able to present the work of Clifford T. Bailey and his “Homage to Earle, Deep Shadows”.  Could they have studied together?

UPDATE:  No, they did not study together, but Clifford did meet Eyvind Earle when he was 14 years old and several times during his youth.  It was Mr. Earle who influenced Clifford Bailey’s pursuit of art and becoming an artist.  After seeing the master’s work, there was no turning back for Clifford. THIS PAINTING SOLD IN LESS THAN 30 minutes after arriving in the gallery on December 2.

Clearing, 18x24 John Sherman

Different styles of art draw us in for different reasons. John Sherman’s highly textured mixed medium paintings draw viewers in for a closer look at the texture and vibrant color. Having represented John for the past six years, I can assure you his many paintings sold through Hunter-Wolff Gallery were based on his vibrant RED color. For more than a decade he has produced “red trees” typically on a warm gold background.  But, then John had a “moment” this past fall near his home in the Rocky Mountains and it has unlocked a more colorful, multi-dimensional work of art.

 

Here are several new pieces for your comment.  We love the explosion of color and expressionistic style and hope you do too.

John Sherman’s original art is available for purchase at Hunter-Wolff Gallery.  Visit us for a closer look.

The Edge, 48x30 John Sherman
