Artists: Alex Foltz & June Klement
Alex Foltz is a contemporary realist artist living in Augusta, Georgia.
Foltz’s initial focus was on light and how it interacts with the world: how different light can convey a different mood. This shows in his conceptual work, which often depicts melancholy subjects with a more lighthearted tone. Inversely, his landscapes often display otherwise cheery places under a moody and dramatic sky, showcasing the power of nature. His focus on expressive realism and rich, lifelike color has also pushed him to explore portraiture and the nuances that can make paint look like a person.
June Klement was born in Knoxville, Tennessee and now calls Augusta, Georgia her home. Her work focuses on translating the emotions that she feels when exploring urban and natural environments into paint. Her impressionistic style of lively, vibrant, and bold brushstrokes highlights the ephemerality of color and light through textures on canvas.
Klement enjoys painting in the studio and painting en plein air. Painting en plein air allows her to communicate nuances in light and feelings that change quickly in an outdoors environment and cannot be captured in the studio. She has always enjoyed painting, and, after working and raising a family, she returned to painting to translate the beauty, joy, and love that she experiences into brushstrokes.
