Lindberg Galleries (Collingwood)

Lindberg Gallery is a contemporary art gallery representing a diverse range of established and  emerging artists. This week I discovered a small but beautifully executed portrait by Paul Ruiz.  Paul’s portraits are stunning.  He often sets his portraits in a dark background and the way in which he works with light and shadow creates beautiful, soft yet powerful images.  I also love that with all of his female portraits there is an underlying sense of strength.

I also had a sneak peek at works by Marc De Jong who has a full exhibition coming up later this year. Marc’s style is pixilation using oil paint and it works across a range of subject matter – people, place and landscape.  Although the image does not change whether you are near or far, the effect of the artwork is very different from near and far.  I love these artworks from both near and far.
