Visual artist Terry Strickland shares how her figurative, contemporary realism paintings help her, and others, understand this collective experience of art and life. Join Terry at the next virtual art conference, Realism Live, November 10-12, 2022!
Terry Strickland paints realistic, conceptually provocative figurative oil paintings. They have a modern sensibility and vibrant color with an old master’s attention to detail. The results are beautiful, compelling paintings with universal themes that people relate to.
Much of Terry’s work investigates the idea that a choice of costume can reveal or conceal truths about our shared humanity. One constant in Terry’s work is human connection. Her favorite way to paint a model is boldly and unabashedly making eye contact, creating an instant relationship between artist, viewer, and model.
