Max Ferguson,’Tailor’,2003, a pencil drawing.
From the pages:” (the artist)capture(s) a vanishing urban scene in and around New York”.
Typical of Ferguson are his hyper-realistic paintings
like this ‘Doll Hospital'(2005, oil on panel).
But I also like the peculiar atmosphere of this earlier painting: ‘Reservoir Self-Portrait”, 1986 (oil on panel).
Somehow the light in ‘Reservoir’ made me think of William Degouve de Nuncques’ paintings (a symbolist, Belgium,1867-1935), despite the lack of sharpness of the trees in the shadow in the following work.
All my thanks to Johnshaven for the link to Max Ferguson’s site!
