POP Art and Character, Part II — With the April calendar, curator Beth DeTal of Rogue Space|Chelsea continued her program of whimsy and character, laughing as she selected “Fit” by John Luce Lockett of England to start the month. She explained that by character she meant that “you could look at a piece and feel the personality of the artist and all the elements involved: the model, textures, colors. In many of these artworks, the artist found ways to show the human form in unconventional ways -- contortion, etc.” DeTal thought Mollie Kellogg probably really enjoyed painting her “Incognito Witch Project” series.
In another note, she made special mention of Jean Marcellino, the only barebrush artist to appear in both calendars. DeTal felt that although not her personal taste in art styles, Marcellino’s art rings true. “She has an amazing talent for capturing likenesses.” DeTal also said that she felt that she knows these people because she gets so much character into her work. “If I met them I would recognize them right away.”The 30 artists represented in April, 2010, in day order are: 1* John Luce Lockett, 2 Sara Swan, 3 Roger Cummiskey, 4 Jean Marcellino, 5 Kelly Borsheim, 6 William Thierfelder, 7* Anthony Gordon, 8 David Michael Hollander, 9 Jacqui Morgan, 10 C.
