As I began the search for Q artists for ABC Wednesday this week, I had my doubts of finding many artists. I knew there would be Chinese artists but not sure of any others. So I was a bit surprised to find a few!
Here are 3 different artists, 2 from before the 16th century and 1 very current.
Thomas Quinn - he is an American naturalist, living in California.
Here is a quote of his about his work:
"Sometimes," Quinn says, "the paint can transcend the flat surface of the canvas, and the result assumes the elusive quality of a wild thing." The philosophy of "less is more" is evident in Quinn's art. He has "always admired the magic of negative space, what is left unsaid."
Qian Xuan -the 13th century Chinese painter of landscapes, flowers and birds
