Black Friday

Our Black Friday collection showcases a range of exciting and dynamic pieces of art for you to buy online today. Abundant with emotion, intensity and at times humour, the Black Friday collection embodies the feelings often associated with this recent phenomenon. Our curators have selected pieces of art that capture the tone of Black Friday in a range of paintings, prints, sculptures and photography. The Black Friday collection is formed of art that is daring in approach and bold in aesthetic. Browse through our collection and discover art that varies in style, scale and subject, but is unified in a dynamic and dramatic approach. Our Black Friday collection exhibits art that merges elements of beauty and intensity with extreme vulnerability. One artist who demonstrates this is Stella Kapeznou. Stella’s paintings are characterised by their contrasts. Whether contrasting colour, style or setting, Stella creates in-depth and complex narratives within her paintings. Leo and Friends displays the intensity that contrast can achieve. Stella has framed her subjects in a bright and vibrant striped pattern which gives a sense of immediacy and action to her painting. This contrast between subject and backdrop is evident elsewhere in the Black Friday collection, including Misericord by Andrew McNeil Jones. Here, Andrew combines detail with an unfinished and textured backdrop to further enhance the direct nature of his subject. Another piece in the Black Friday collection that reveals the intensity of the human condition is The Grief by Yannis Guibinga. In this photograph, Yannis captures a moment of extreme silence and deep introspection. The vulnerability of the figure in this painting creates a distance between the artwork and the viewer, whereas in Nelson Makamo’s drawing, *Beauty, the figure looks beyond the viewer to draw us back into our own environment. Abstract paintings and drawings also feature throughout the Black Friday collection. Direct and visceral works such as Felicity by Lisa Carney and Dodging ‘tween the flak stand out as bold feature pieces, whilst Philip Vaughn’sVeiled Reference uses monochrome to create movement. All three paintings have a tangeable dynamic to them, formed by the repeated and layered use of line. Layering often gives depth to art, as is clear in Niki Hare’s painting, This is Now. Niki plays on the aesthetics of signage with typography to hover between the abstract and the real. Philip Maltman on the other hand, uses wording to create movement and inflection within his paintings. His piece, Opulent Curves 2 is poetic, yet fragmented, gesturing towards the flux of everyday life. Take a look through our Black Friday collection to discover captivating and compelling works of art from some of the biggest names on the contemporary art scene. This curated collection is uniquely diverse in scale, style and genre, reflecting our wider range of art available at Rise Art. Whether you are looking for something to appeal to your bold taste, or you have a penchant for all things dynamic and exciting, browse through our online gallery and find the perfect new piece to buy online today.

Fear Collection

Indulge in the thrilling and marvel at the ethereal with our Fear collection. Our team of curators have hand-selected each and every piece in this collection to appeal to the Halloween fanatics amongst us, or those who have a penchant for the otherworldly. Formed of paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures and collages, our Fear collection showcases a diverse selection of works from emerging and established contemporary artists working around the world. Whilst a string of works in the Fear Collection are unified by an orange palette, others adhere to a surrealist style. Every piece of art in this specially curated collection has a similar approach in which they play on the imaginary, the distorted or the surprising. Whether intriguing or shocking the viewer, the art in this collection is daring and original, reflecting the wider range of work we have for sale at Rise Art. Browse our gallery below to discover a thrilling selection of art available to buy online today. If you’re after something surreal and sinister, take a look at the art of Mark Metcalfe. Mark’s painting, Stigmata: Nuns and Adolescent Girls Breed Poltergeist, along with others in his portfolio, presents a ghostly impression that gestures towards a wider narrative. His realist style, together with the starkness of his subject, makes for a painting that is both unsettling and intriguing. Mark’s boldness in his subject choice echoes other works of art throughout the Fear collection. Fellow painter Clinton Kirkpatrick distorts the human form, and in doing so emphasises the features of the hand and eyes to directly confront the viewer. The idea of presenting something that is not quite human is reiterated by printmakers. Taking influence from Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism and Street Art, Darren Macpheson's prints are layered with mediums, motifs and meaning. Martin Thompson’s print, Mouldgirl also demonstrates how combining different elements and techniques can create something that is both unnerving and compelling. Mouldgirl is a mixed media print, created from oils, print, photography and mould. With this piece, Martin pushes the boundaries of what is possible in art, and by adding mould, he undoes the idea that a piece of art is a permanent or still object. The Fear collection is perfect for people with a taste for art that does more than just sit quietly on a wall. Whether you are looking for something to satisfy your bold style, or on the hunt for something to brighten up a room, start exploring our online gallery and find the perfect piece of art to buy for your home.

October Curator's Picks

This month we've been looking at how our artists think about form and uniformity in a way that evades traditional style categorisations. Their relationship with these ideas is not dictated by whether their work is abstract, figurative or otherwise. We have looked beyond these labels, instead contrasting loose and gestural works by the likes of Jane Pryor, Clinton Kirkpatrick and Matt Antoniak with more regimented works by Nick Miners, Pablo Sinaí, Dominic McHenry and others.

Best Sellers

Take a look at our collection of Rise Art Best Sellers below. Our team of curatorial experts have collated some of our customers’ all-time favourite prints, paintings and photographs from our online gallery. Ranging in medium, genre and scale, each piece in the collection presents a unique style to appeal to a range of customers. Our Best Sellers collection showcases a diverse range of art that gives viewers an insight into our extensive online gallery. Whether you’re on the lookout for an investment piece, or perhaps you’re after a series of works to complete a room, have a look through our Best Sellers collection and gain an insight into what’s trending in the contemporary art scene today. One artist who is consistently popular with Rise Art customers, as well as art lovers and critics around the world, is print and installation artist Rebecca Mason. Rebecca juxtaposes probing and direct typography messaging with intricate and varied backgrounds. Rebecca’s light art is unique in that she unpacks the connotations that arise with neon light art, and instead uses her work to focus on the darker and underlying aspects of the human condition. The quality of Rebecca’s prints captures the energy and vibrancy of her light installation sculptures to make art that jumps off the wall. Another artist whose work is ever-loved and endlessly intriguing is photographer Tommy Clarke. Tommy’s realistic style presents an original view of landscapes around the world. Tommy reinvigorates the seascape, altering his lens to either zoom in on the textural quality of the ocean or out to form birds eye view impressions of expansive vistas. Tommy uses a realistic approach to make his subjects abstract. Scenes of real life become appreciated for their ability to form a pattern or an entirely organic aesthetic that somewhat loses their own sense of realism. Tommy’s photographs are typically large scale prints, sitting boldly on their own or perfectly in gallery wall arrangement. Our Best Sellers are often pieces of art that challenge the viewer’s perspective, inviting a closer look into the heart of the piece. Photographer Reed Hearne reflects Tommy Clarke’s method of abstracting scenes of nature, however draws focus to the beauty that can be found in overlooked scenes. Interested in geometry and pattern, Reed’s photographs become colourful expressionist works that further distort the realism of photography. At times, Reed’s work can resemble other abstract paintings in our Best Sellers collection, such as the marbled quality of Fintan Whelan’s vast oil paintings and the aquatic nature of Roseline Al Oumami’s impasto works. In fact, Reed, Fintan and Roseline’s work all tread the boundaries of style and medium, prompting a closer examination of the process behind the creation of each piece. Our Best Sellers are diverse in appearance and dynamic in style. Yet, they are all firmly united in their ability to stand out and draw the viewer in. Whether through the photorealistic quality of a painting, or the decorative abstract nature of a photograph, each piece in our Best Sellers collection is unique in its ability to charm and captivate the viewer.
