Guest Forager: Kurt Yalcin of UGallery Presents Ryan Pickart

6 Aug

Hey Artsies!

My name is Kurt and I hail from the curated corners of UGallery, an online gallery of original artwork.  It’s a pleasure to share one of UGallery’s star artists with all of you. Luckily, I didn’t have to forage far.  Ryan Pickart has been on UGallery for over four years.  His ladies are the stuff of dreams.  I see their beautiful eyes everywhere.  I’d like to introduce you to the gorgeous gals of Indiana artist Ryan Pickart because you never know when you may run into one of them ( Don’t worry, they have the Lesley Frenz stamp of approval! )

Ryan Pickart’s portraits fill the void for modern day muses.  His paintings depict Goddess-like entities that capture all facets of the human personality. Each lovely lady is surrounded by a distinct aura of intense emotion.  Their faces are familiar, yet distant.  Ryan succeeds in his mission to “bridge the gap between abstract and realism.”  He couples courage with charm and force with femininity.

I often compare the strong female figures in my life to Ryan Pickart’s portraits (and vice versa).  My mother’s fearlessness matches Lyra’s fiery features. My sister’s kindness is met by Diana’s daintiness.  I even see my best friend’s wild spirit in Regina’s loose locks of hair.

Say hello to Freja, Erin, Guinevere, and Tiffany.  No matter which woman speaks to your heart, a Ryan Pickart painting (or print) guarantees enough feminine finesse to soften any room.  The only issue you may run into is picking the one that speaks most to your inner anima.  They’re all so darn cute!

Thanks so much for letting me introduce them to everyone, Lesley.  And thanks for your time, Artsies.  I hope you enjoyed Ryan’s work!

Artfully yours,
Kurt and the Lovers at UGallery
