The artist is now based out of New York City.

Gary Peterson is one of my favorite abstract artists. His use of free flowing lines and colors remind of computer screen savers, but with more color and a more artsy look.

Below a link to the website of the artist:

Peterson’s work reminds of two artists named Shirley already profiled here, Shirley Jaffe and Shirley Kaneda.

I enjoy the artist’s use of line and how she creates works that seem to move as the viewer changes position. Another artist who has a wonderful sense of motion in her artwork is Shirley Kaneda.

Artist of the moment……Shirley Kaneda

Shirley Kaneda is a fantastic contemporary artist born in Tokyo, Japan in the year 1951. For her artistic education Kaneda attended the Pratt Institute located in New York City.

When I think of this artist, the word “screen saver” comes to mind. Kaneda does use the computer as part of her painting process.

Kaneda has also taught at the collegiate level and continues to teach at the Pratt Institute.

Kaneda uses oils and acrylics in most of her work.

Kaneda has won fellowships and grants from the National Endowment of the Arts, the Pollack Krasner Foundation, and the Guggenheim Foundation.
