Tom Bostelle

Artist Jay Rolfe went with artist Alan Soffer to see the exhibit of drawings and a few sculptures of deceased artist Tom Bostelle at his home and studio Aeolian Palace on the Brandywine River at Lenape, about 3 miles from here. Artist Brett Walker was the guest host and displayed 2 paintings and showed us around. The drawings were mostly landscapes and a few figures, but not the shadow motif of his most well known paintings. Every time I've been to the Aeolian Palace I've been impressed with (and a little jealous of) the amount of work space he had.

Today's photos are from Tom Bostelle's website. One photo is one of Bostelle's shadow paintings titled "Desperado," and the other is a picture of his studio with many paintings stacked against the wall. You can see more on his website. Here's the link.

That's the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's Unique Artistic Idea, his Hyper Representational 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at Artist Jay Rolfe uses vibrant color, 3-D, recognizable shape, and huge size to reveal beauty, touch emotion in a positive way, and create an Uplifting Conversation Piece.
