ABOUT THE ARTIST

Dominique Medici is a NYC-based artist specializing in both Egg tempera and Oil painting. She studied in London and has exhibited internationally, including Art in Action, Royal Society of Portrait Painters, Christies Young Artist Exhibition and the Society of Portrait Painters. She was a semi finalist in 2006 Outwin Boochevor Portrait Completion and recently received an honorable mention in the 2014 Portrait Society of America members show and honorable mention for portraiture during Oil Painters of America’s 24th Annual National Juried Show and the Margaret Dole Award at the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club 118th Annual Exhibition . Dominique has undertaken numerous international portrait commissions and her work in displayed in many private collections throughout Europe and the US, including Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness. Dominique has a passion for teaching and has taught extensively both privately and publicly.

“I love working from life with direct observation because it is tangible and concrete. However, there is something that lies behind the obvious, a sense of mystery and wonder. Whether it is the model in the studio, a stream in woods or a crowded downtown scene, life has a sparkle and shimmer. I love connecting with that and trying to get an expression of it directly in my work. I am always searching for a quality of stillness in my work. There is a profound and serene joy that washes over when the boundary between subject and object is lost. My hope is that my viewers get a sense of this when looking at my work”—Dominique Medici

Max Ginsburg: The Realities of Our Times

Oil on canvas 50in x 72in 2010 - I had decided to use my studio's natural sky light directly on the models again, as I did in my Torture Abu-Ghraib painting. This gave a more solid three-dimensional look to the forms in contrast to the flatter look of candid photography, although the candid shots have other redeeming qualities. I based this composition on my observation of people waiting for New York City buses. Of course each model brings his or her own personality into the mix. The location for my background was 96th Street near Broadway in Manhattan.
