clear path

I met Derek Penix at the Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibition several years ago. As the editor of this magazine as well as Western Art Collector, I try to go to this event every year. I’ve missed a few. But I believe this was one in Dallas. I liked Derek’s work a lot when I saw it. So did everyone else. In fact, the year we met he won the American Art Collector Award of Excellence and he also won the Best of Show award from the group. Recently, Derek reached out to me. I think I’ve seen him one other time since he received our award. He sent me an email and asked how much it would cost to take our back cover. I was impressed that he…

interview with tslil tsemet

Growing up in the exorbitantly politically charged environment of Jerusalem, artist Tslil Tsemet was bound to find some of that manifesting in her art. Her paintings lie at the intersection of creepy and humorous. Her subject matters are often telling a story dealing with social and cultural matters, which are clearly very much entwined in the fiber of her being. Artists paint what they know, what they’ve experienced or want to experience, and what topics are important to them. This is exactly what Tsemet is doing. She believes that laughter as well as art are both healing remedies in this sick, sad world, so those are the things she puts into action. Her slightly disturbing imagery demands your attention. Then after a longer look, the dark humor of it all…
