An eloquent collision of classic and modern for the relentless soul. – Anne Neilson Fine Art
This past Friday a new exhibition opened featuring the works of William McLure, McKenzie Dove, Kim Fonder and Kinuko Hoffman. Since Saturdays are always our gallery days (although we do make it to the official openings during the warmer months) we decided to center our day around checking out this latest exhibition Coup de Foudre at the Anne Neilson Fine Art Gallery.
William McLure IV
William Rankin McLure IV, a Lousiana native, has been creative since he was a young child and has been hoeing his God-given flare for art and design ever since. He graduation from The Southern Institute of Design, where has active in the American Society of Interior Designers as a student. William’s work, an array of styles ranging from realism, to drawings, to figures, to abstracts, has garnered the attention of high-end designers and publications including Mark D. Nikes, Lonny Margo, Domino Magazine, and Southern Living. – Anne Neilson Fine Art Gallery
McKenzie’s textured oil paintings are applied entirely with palette knives. This textured layering technique was developed after studying the Impressionistic and Expressionistic movements. The sole use of this tool, and often monochromatic palettes, creates a complex, yet precise and soothing, composition. Alongside of her oil paintings, McKenzie works in mixed media to create figurative and abstracted works on paper. – Anne Neilson Fine Art Gallery
Kim Fonder, an Oregon native, has been an artist from a young age. She started with photography in the early 1990’s which led to curating and producing small exhibitions. Kim soon began to experiment with painting using the feedback from other artists as her inspiration.
Kinuko Imai Hoffman
Kinuko Imai Hoffman hills from a family of architects and artists. After college, she lived in countries across Asia and studied traditional Chinese brush painting. Initially, she trained in the Song Dynasty style with Chinese brush painting Master Jan Ibin from Beijing, who awarded her with an honorary emblem of the Jan Ibin School, a rare gift of recognition and prestige. Later, she studied the freer abstract technique of the Chinese southern style with Mater Ian Chung in Hong Kong. – Anne Neilson Fine Art Gallery
