We love the intense color in these paintings by Chicago artist Arielle Sandler. Arielle sums it all up in her online manifesto: Paint is seductive terrain. The surfaces of her canvases are up to an inch think, with color slathered in liberal doses of blue and green. Paintings range from $1,000 to $4,000, and are available online at The Beholder or through Arielle's web page. Shown Above: 07.2448.01 (Diptych), Oil on Canvas, 48 x 24 inches, $4,000 at Arielle Sandler Studio.
Arielle says, I work with colors until they converse with one another. The more intricate the color combination, the more complex the discourse.
