October’s Art Salon at the Corcoran is in one week! Between now and then, get to know a few of our contributing artists:
Imagine if everyone you knew was beautiful, exotic, and had a fascinating story to tell. Portraitist Chanel Compton aims to do just that by incorporating the stylings of high fashion photography into her unique portraiture. Through her use of dramatic lighting, heavy shadows, and enriched colors, she paints much more than her subject at hand. It comes as no surprise, then, that Compton can play off of John Singer Sargent‘s ability to truly capture the presence of an individual in the Corcoran Gallery of Art‘s current exhibit, Sargent and the Sea. It is in the dramatic juxtaposition of Compton and Sargent that we see the dialogue begin: through Compton’s glamourous style and Sargent’s all-encompassing realism, we can experience a truly unique blend of portraiture unlike anything ever seen.
To continue the visual dialogue started by Compton and Sargent, attend our montlyArt Salon at the Corcoran on Oct. 29.
