Southwest Art Previews “Landscapes of the American West” by Glenn Dean

“It’s why I live where I do. It’s classic California: rolling hills with oak trees, sycamores, and eucalyptus trees,” declares painter Glenn Dean, referring to the iconic landscape elements of his native state. Beyond that, however, California’s central coast is a perfect jumping-off place for the 37-year-old painter’s frequent plein-air excursions around the Southwest. From Utah’s striking landforms to the ancient cliff walls of Canyon de Chelly, the quintessential landscapes of the Southwest and California are the focus of...

Western Art Collector Magazine Previews Glenn Dean’s 2014 Solo Exhibit

Western landscapes are about the hierarchy of immensity, and how it can shift from artist to artist, subject to subject. Consider Glenn Dean’s evocative and fascinating desert pieces: what is dwarfed in one scene is monumental in another. In Dean’s Midday Sun, a cowboy and his horse are framed against an empty tan sky, the distant mountains appear puny and forgotten in the background. In his Canyon Riders, a scene of four figures on horseback gently riding through a red rock canyon, Dean reverses the theme and paints the rocks as the...

Fine Art Connoisseur “Artist Making Their Mark” – Vincent Xeus

VINCENT XEUS (b. 1981) explores the circle of life and challenges its supposed truths through figurative paintings on linen and drawings on paper. He grew up in central China as that country shook off the Cultural Revolution that had so thoroughly suppressed artistic expression of all kinds. Undaunted, his family gave the boy a drawing kit at age nine, when he began “living and breathing” art. By 14, he was having artworks published in a national newspaper and acquired by collectors overseas. At 16, he traveled to the United States,...

Southwest Art Labels Vincent Xeus as an “Artist to Watch”

From the popular movie Star Wars to glorious photographs depicting Lower Manhattan, Vincent Xeus grew up dreaming about coming to America. Xeus was among the first generation born after the Cultural Revolution in China. In spite of the fact that change was in the air, he became convinced that the United States was the best place to chase his lofty dreams, he says. During high school he visited California, toured the University of California at Berkeley, and eventually decided to apply. He was accepted and graduated in 2006 with high honors...

Artists on Art Features Vincent Xeus on their April Cover

The sun recedes into the far end of Highway 5 as if it just found a new destination. The fading light turns the gentle hills of the California coast into a band of green that’s much cooler than it really is. I remember driving through this spectacular view for my first public gallery show. As I write down these thoughts, I’m on my way home from the reception of my solo exhibition “The Last Pearl” in Los Angeles. The doubts and fears that I had seem to have been given an antidote by so much that happened. I was deeply touched by the...

  VINCENT XEUS The last pearl Painting, for figurative artist Vincent Xeus, is the process of questioning reality in order to appreciate the true beauty of all things. “What is light without darkness,” he muses, “what is happiness without sorrow?” In his first solo exhibit at Maxwell Alexander Gallery in Culver City, California, Xeus will present figure paintings that are not about the body, but instead the journey to resolution. Each painting in the group of new work also has a different purpose in his exploration. “The...

The real estate developer Harry Culver developed Culver City, California in 1913. It was incorporated in 1917. Culver declared “All roads lead to Culver City” and soon, ”Rome on the Pacific” became “The Heart of Screenland,” the home of MGM Studios and Hal Roach Studios in the 1920s and ’30s. The Chamber of Commerce grated that the city didn’t get the proper credit in the films that were made there and adopted the slogan “Culver City, Where Hollywood Movies are Made.” Today Culver City is still an important hub for film...

Glenn Dean has chosen frames that recall arts and crafts design for his show of small works at Maxwell Alexander Gallery in Culver City, California. He admires their “simplicity and the honesty of their construction. When I approach the landscape, I try to simplify what I’m seeing. It’s a similar aesthetic.” Dean paints in his studio from...
