PHIL CRAWSHAY GALLERY

Arts_8.22

Phil Crawshay specializes in exquisitely detailed, large format fine art photography, often referred to as “HD for photography.”

The work represents the decades of Crawshay’s dedicated involvement and experience within the photography and digital media field. Every piece is handcrafted and produced at the gallery by Crawshay.

By utilizing many different processes, he is able to produce images of stunning clarity at very large sizes.

“Image sharpness across the whole image is extremely important to me,” he says. “Rather than just produce an arty composition, I try to capture the entire scene so it can be transported back to one’s own living environment in the most realistic and detailed way possible.”

The attention to detail does not stop at the photography. At the gallery you will see each piece beautifully presented using a process known as face mounting. This involves adhering the fine art print to the rear of acrylic, which produces an incredibly smooth surface that attracts the light in such a way that it appears to be almost backlit. The added advantage is that the piece is completely sealed and will never degrade. It is an extremely difficult process to achieve.

GINGER FOX GALLERY

Arts_8.22

West Texas native Ginger Fox is primarily a self-taught artist. Fox’s journey into the arts began as a child and continues with an endless array of projects and mediums.

Fox’s extensive national and international travels added life experience and a deeper understanding and appreciation for the world she discovered. Her love of life and its beauty drives her enthusiasm for increasing environmental awareness and our impact on nature.

Fox paints magical realism to create a world on canvas where she combines the magnificence of our natural world with elements of the manmade. Fox’s magical realism work blurs the line between real and imagined in order to consider how we might coexist in greater harmony within the natural world. In stark contrast, Fox has also been painting abstract expressionism for over 15 years. She loves the freedom she feels during the creation process. “You don’t know where you are going, so you have the connection between you as the artist and canvas in order to capture the moment,” she says.

DOUGLAS KING

Arts_8.22

“Painting and creating has been a significant part of my life since I was in elementary school,” says Douglas King, editor of Dallas Style & Design, whose acrylic on canvas paintings are available through Bee Street Studio. “I have always painted for myself, in a number of styles, but it was not until recently that I thought others might enjoy my work.”

To say King’s work is eclectic is an understatement. In one series he limits his palette to black, while in another his brush blends the entire spectrum of color into a loose rainbow as a backdrop of more controlled black lines swirl, forming the impression of stained glass. On another canvas he creates very graphic designs and shapes reminiscent of retro Mod images, and in yet another he paints abstract sunsets. His canvases vary in size from 40 x 30 inches to smaller 8 x 10 inch studies. “I like to experiment and explore many different styles,” he notes. “I never want to be limited in what I create. I paint the scene I see in my mind’s eye and it is different from day to day.” Douglas King
