Artists to watch in 2014: Part Two
Following on from Part One of artists to watch in 2014, here are Bluethumb artists 6-10 (not ranked) whose work you should keep an eye on this year.
We love all our artists, but those on the list of 20 to watch are either a) new to Bluethumb, b) about to hit the big time, or c) selling a lot of work at the moment.
6. Jenny Davis
Jenny Davis is an abstract artist from Melbourne whose work has been exhibited throughout Australia, as well as in New York, Berlin, Spain, France, and the UK. She’s one of our most established artists here at Bluethumb and we think this year is going to be a great one for her. This painting, Misma Voy, was created when Jenny was artist in residence at the Can Serrat International Art Center in Barcelona, Spain – you can buy it now for $1,375.
7. Llael McDonald
Llael McDonald has wowed us all since joining Bluethumb late in 2013. Her realist/semi-surrealist paintings have shades of Jeffrey Smart, and she has exhibited internationally as well as throughout Australia. This painting is called The Score and you can buy it now for $5,550.
8. Jamahl Pollard
Jamahl Pollard is one of our newest artists, and is particularly fascinating as he has a serious vision impairment. From the sounds of it, he paints because of his disability, not in spite of it, and has exhibited throughout SA and won several awards and prizes. This painting is called Garden Revival, and you can buy it now for $330.
9. Andrew Pearson
Andrew Pearson is an established artist from Melbourne who has exhibited extensively throughout Australia and overseas, where his beautiful still lifes have a following among well-known actors, musicians and even politicians. We’re pretty chuffed to have him at Bluethumb. This painting is called Dream White Gum Flowers and you can buy it now for $3,100.
10. Sarah Crane
Chances are, by the time this post is live, the painting above will have sold. That’s how fast Sarah Crane sells! Her intricate, intensely coloured work is hugely popular and we’ll be watching her throughout 2014. This work is called Set U Free and you can buy it now for $800.
