Ann Judge Forget is a Cape Cod based artist whose business name is Ann Judge Design. Ann’s pieces have a bright, whimsical, abstract feeling expressing color, shape, form and movement. Ann finds inspiration from the natural beauty of landscapes, beachscapes and skyscapes. She looks for shapes and forms in nature. Sometimes, it is a sandy, hilly beach with sand ripples and formations that are left behind when the tide goes out. Other times, it is the rolling hills or a sky with textured clouds and the ever changing elements that add dimension to her work. She likes to play around with the horizon line, as it can sometimes divide the painting into thirds or in half depending on the feel for which she is searching.
Ann also likes to incorporate subtle surprises between forms, adding squiggly lines in opposing colors to bring allure to the piece. She is trying to extract the essence of the image between organic shapes and the negative space. The artist usually works with acrylics but lately has added the element of oil pastel to enhance the color. Most recently, Ann has gone back to earlier themes such as the female body. A woman’s body has been a motivation for artists since the beginning of time. It is the curves, creases and softness of these forms that enliven Ann’s latest paintings. She likes to call these bodyscapes. Her study of art history motivates her to constantly be thinking of and designing her next piece. Ann’s favorite artist’s range from van Gogh, Matisse, O’Keeffe, Thiebauld to Hockney.
Robert Ryan grew up in Newton MA and studied art at The Art Institute of Boston. He has been on Cape Cod since 2110, as an artist of oil paint. The work is primarily large and done with brush and palette knife .
His large abstracts are often very personal and emotional and are filled with brilliant color and heavy texture.
Seascapes and interpretive landscapes are somewhat representative, but still done primarily through the mind’s eye and imagination, and all done in studio.
Robert has displayed his work in San Diego, La Quinta, and Los Angeles in California, and in Massachusetts, his paintings have adorned many walls of private residences, as well as restaurants and galleries in Newton, Mashpee, Brewster, Orleans, and Provincetown.
Seapine Art is a local Cape Cod artist who works with a combination of mediums, mostly acrylics coated with 2-part epoxy resin, which gives her paintings a shiny modern look.
She is inspired by nature – particularly the movement in waves and the softness of clouds. Many feel her paintings bring them a sense of calm and peacefulness through the movement and flow of her abstract works.
She uses both soft tones and brilliant colors to create a pleasing “pop.” She enjoys using iridescent paints and mixes her own paints to create unique colors that bring a special sparkle to each painting. Each piece is painted with great care and love - so much so that many pieces contain a hidden heart in the design!
Some of her paintings are as small as 6” x 6” while others measure over 5 feet! Each painting is unique and one of a kind. They are all signed and numbered by the artist.
