ArtScope Highlight: Richard Diebenkorn’s Woman in Profile, 1958
Winter days got you feeling wistful? We hear ya. The subject of Woman in Profile, a painting by Richard Diebenkorn, channels this contemplative mood beautifully. Diebenkorn was a painter best known for his involvement in the Bay Area Figurative movement, in which artists applied the active brushwork of Abstract Expressionism to figures, still lifes and landscapes, creating planes of abstraction within more representational imagery. Diebenkorn spent much of his life in California, including a stint in Berkeley, and the imagery of his paintings reflects this. A trademark of his process is the visible remnant, wherein traces of hidden layers, accumulated in the process of building up the image, are allowed to remain on the surface of a painting.
Get contemplative with Diebenkorn:

Caux Collective Recommends: Andrew Fairclough
The wonderfully vivid screenprints that you see here come from a number of projects from talented, Australian Illustrator & Designer, Andrew Fairclough, founder of the multi-disciplinary design studio, Kindred.
These three pieces come from the projects, ‘Alternate Endings’, ‘Alphabetica’ and ‘Face The Music’ (all of which can be found on Fairclough’s website and Behance profile, as linked above) each exhibiting his immediately recognisable printing style, boasting equally rich colour and texture, which continues to make every piece of his so aesthetically pleasing.
If you would like to see more from Andrew Fairclough, go ahead and visit either of the links above, where you can find many more of his personal projects and his commercial exploits, featuring work for companies such as G-Shock, Trunk Junk Quarterly, Westbeach and Casio.

“One of the most pleasurable moviegoing experiences I’ve had this year.”
BEAUTY IS EMBARRASSING is a funny, irreverent and inspiring documentary tracing the career of one of America’s most influential artists, Wayne White. It’s hard not to recognize his iconic work on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse in the ‘80s, and equally hard not to fall in love with his artistic process and how he came into it.
While you’re watching it, you’ll have a hard time resisting an urge to get some artwork for yourself!
