Koen Lybaert, Giverny 028 [Abstract N° 1567] Koen Lybaert, Giverny 028 [Abstract N° 1567]
Contemporary painter Koen Lybaert, born 1965 in Wilrijk, Belgium, is most recognized for his abstract and landscape oil paintings. His technique consists of carefully layering colors on canvas in order to create a dense, subtle and slowly deepening mixture of overlapping colors and shapes. Inspired by woods, lakes, mountains, sea and desolate landscapes he creates abstract representations of nature.

His contemporary landscape oil paintings are based on his own photographs taken during walks or travels. These photographs also form the basis of a series of overpainted photographs.

Tim Hallinan's geometric colors are inspired by architecture and the urban environment. He describes his process as: ''Rather than simply start over on a new canvas or board as the idea develops, I will scrape away old and add new layers of paint on top of prior compositions. I continue with this process until the painting I have been aiming for appears on the surface. The act of scraping away and adding layers will sometimes take my idea in a completely new direction resulting in a painting which only vaguely resembles my original intention. These layers represent my thought process, reveal past versions of the work and ultimately make up the final composition.''

Born in 1974 in Riga, Latvia, artist Ieva Baklane exhibited in her native Riga as well as Berlin, Prague and Rome before immigrating to Canada in 2002. The artist works in both abstract and realism. The abstract qualities of her work derive from what Baklane describes as the fact that she ''always wanted to be an architect, but never pursued this dream.''

Her classical art education influences the realism aspect of her work. Short summers in her homeland Latvia have lead her to seek inspiration from Italy, Spain, Mexico, California and Florida for her richly saturated Hockney-esque works.
