Stone Beach by Humphrey

                            Stone Beach by Humphrey

      As one treks through the dense autumn hued forest, the dense foliage finally clears to reveal a secluded beach comprised of smoothly eroded stones and an azure inlet of water. A discovery of a secret cove to those who have ventured forth the distance and have at last found their place of rejuvenation. All is quiet in Humphrey's "Stone Beach" and there is a serene calm that is gently infused throughout the atmosphere of this painting, even in the presence of intense color.       


     Although inspired by nature, the hues Humphrey employs are richly saturated and further serve to express the vitality and aliveness of the landscape. This rich vibrancy of color, especially applied in the leaves of the trees and the flora surrounding the beach contrasts with the tranquil blue of the bay’s water and the subtle muted earth tones of the tree covered hills on the opposite shore.   

     Across the water in the distance, the source of light is highlighted in fine gossamer mist that is diffused in the right side of the painting behind the trees in the foreground, which lends a mysterious quality to the work. The light in the center of the composition is accented by the concentration of highlights on the water, providing the painting’s focal point and creating a final resting place visually and mentally.

Sunlight and Shadow

                  Sunlight and Shadow by Humphrey

     Humphrey’s Sunlight and Shadow contrasts with other works in his oeuvre due to the strong presence of darker values that are usually not as prominent in his sunlit and colorful vistas. In this composition, the river’s path cuts through a dense forest that the sunlight struggles to penetrate through, creating passages of shadow throughout. Somber tones are employed to depict the depth of the water and the areas alongside the river that are untouched by the sun. Even though shadows are momentous throughout the design, they further serve to emphasize the light by providing visual contrast.     

     Light is the primary focus of this composition, concentrated in the center of the painting. The light illuminates the water unfettered by forest canopy. Where light manages to break through, it sparkles on the surface of the water, and highlights the multicolored rocks glistening in the shallow embankment. As the river meanders around the bend, its destination is obscured; an enigmatic mist has settled upon the horizon.                                            
      Radiating out from the center of the picture plane, light travels in a diagonal towards the viewer's gaze creating a balance to the lustrous haze in the distance. In the foreground, upon the surface of the dusky blue water, fiery red leaves have fallen to continue their journey upon the river's current, serving as reminders of the turning tide of the season and the miracles embodied within nature.

Seth Camm

San Antonio Artist of the Year

By: Gabriel Diego Delgado

*** As Seen in the new Nov./ Dec. edition of NHOME Magazine.

Read the full article and the edition at:


Each year the San Antonio Art League Museum sponsors a solo exhibition for the 2014 Artist of the Year, having held this event every year since 1945.  The artist is honored with a retrospective exhibition and accompanying catalog.  It provides an opportunity for artists within a sixty mile radius of San Antonio to participate in the competition and possibly be selected for the exhibit in the museum located in the King Williams District of San Antonio.

This year, the coveted and highly prestigious award went to Seth Camm, a San Antonio based artist.

The San Antonio Art League Museum’s website states, “The annual San Antonio Artist’s Exhibition grew out of the fabled Edgar B. Davis Competitions of the late 1920s. It provides an opportunity for artists of all media, young or old, experienced or beginners, to be judged by a juror of repute for acceptance in the exhibition and to compete for awards and purchase prizes.”

Seth Camm, a contemporary painter evokes the artistic attributes of artists and artisans from long ago to help him forge his way through contemporary issues using century’s old techniques. With chiaroscuro, (Italian for the play of light and dark) Seth works through illusionistic shading; defining the illusion of volume. His soft shadows, deep contrasts, and vibrant hues add a signature timeless aesthetic in the world of contemporary art. From impressionistic people, house portraits, landscapes, still-life and even nightmarish narratives, Seth artistic genre elevates him to a status reserved for master painters.

As 2014 Artist of the Year, Seth was chosen by a closed jury panel, his artistic gift dominated the submission selections. Mentored by the great Odd Nerdrum, a contemporary Neo- Baroque artist from Sweden, Seth was guided then delved into the classical techniques of Rembrandt, Michelangelo, and da Vinci.
 With a dark and melancholy overtone, Seth’s portrait paintings take on spiritual affirmations; giving important to the discarded- the homeless, the forgotten, the dismissed; giving voice to the silent and granting eternal purity in the classic renditions for spiritual affirmations and relinquish of penance; washed away by an artistic shaman.

“The Artist of the Year” exhibition is also accompanied by a 36-page color catalog of Camm's work.

Alexander & Victor Fine Art Trunk show featuring Ferenc Tulok
Dec.13, 2014 – Jan. 1, 2015

As we begin to welcome in the new holiday shopping season, J.R. Mooney Galleries of Fine Art is proud to announce the December Second Saturday event – Alexander & Victor Fine Art Trunk Show featuring the works of Realist Painter, Ferenc Tulok and others.

Join J.R. Mooney Galleries of Fine Art as they host Alexander & Victor Fine Art at the Boerne Gallery for December’s Second Saturday event.  A trunk show not to be missed, Alexander & Victor representatives will be on hand with a fine selection of fine art and home accessories from their unique inventory, including artists F. Tulok, Gantner, Eduard and Goar Edgaryan and many others.

Having mastered the art of painting on copper, Tulok has found a unique ground that has allowed his colors to flourish.  Part old master painter, part realist, Tulok has rediscovered the chiaroscuro aesthetic; allowing a new generation of patrons to explore the blackened surroundings and out of view light source- accentuating the traditional still-life compositions.  His soft shadows, deep crimsons and vibrant hues could not be achieved any other way, but with the exploration of this unusual metallic undercoating – copper.  Often exaggerating the dew, moisture and condensation on the elements in the composition, Tulok redefines a classical conception with a still life re-emergence.
