Figure painting.

View From Above - Stephen Andrews

View From The Street - Stephen Andrews

I dig Stephen Andrews paintings currently at Paul Petro. It's been a while since I've been inspired by contemporary painting, so seeing these large paintings in my city (Toronto) was a welcome surprise.
These paintings are reminiscent of Daniel Richter's style (shown below). I like figurative work especially when the narratives are somewhat ambiguous. I also like large scale layered paintings with multiple figures, it's something I find challenging to achieve successfully in my own work.

Jawohl und Gomorrah - Daniel Richter

Horde - Daniel Richter
