J.J. Garfinkel

Chapel Furrow, 2007, oil, acrylic, enamel on panel, 54" x 48"

Terra Spectra, 2008, oil, acrylic, abalone on panel, 48" x 62"

Conjured A Sample, 2008, oil on panel, 40" x 34"
Untitled, 2009, watercolor, gouache, flashe and pencil on paper, 10" x 8"

Channel #3, 2009, oil on canvas, 45" x 45"

Landmine Spring, 2004, enamel, foam, plastic on panel, 24" x 24"

Aura of Nights, 2009, oil on canvas, 52" x 78"

Aura of Lights is part of J.J. Garfinkel's renewed interest in oil painting on a larger and Channel #3 are especially nice in person. I'm liking the way he moved from works like Landmine Spring into this more sophisticated and mysterious grouping of nature's objects. His works have been seen at Hogar Collection (among other spots) and you check out more here.
