Artist Feature: Nathan Brutsky

One of the most interesting aspects about being an artist is that you are constantly seeking out the new and interesting perspectives that other artist are using around you. Lately, I've been interested in finding artwork that has a lot of movement in them. Its kind of like going on a peanut butter and jelly binge for a week. Next month I'll probably be interested in art that depicts the weather...and beef empenadas...I don't know. Anyway, enough newest discovery is an Israeli artist by the name of Nathan Brutsky.

One thing that strikes me about his work is the incredible use of light and movement. As an artist, I have to admit that this is the kind of work that sparks my imagination. He captures contrast (or chiaroscuro) in his composition just like Rembrandt... except with a newly thought out perspective. I see a little cubism in there as well as symbolism (although I don't know if that was intentional on the artist's part).

Whatever painting I see, I can feel the warmth of light above, the swishing of a twirling skirt or wind rustling the pages of a book; music filling the air. Take a look at his site (linked to his name above). Its definitely worth the few minutes it will take...
