Shilo Ratner
Bethany, Connecticut

Shilo Ratner delves beyond the anatomical to study the psychological depth of a person. By focusing on the emotional state of her subjects, Shilo intensifies a mere mannerism into a pose replete with human sensitivity. Her playful use of light and shadow and her economy of color articulates a tension in the painting.

Another year has begun. Really excited for how this year is unfolding art wise. I'm in the process of working on several small oil paintings for a portfolio review I have in April. Keeping my fingers crossed that I get a majority of my work done by the end of February.

This is my first post ever on the Ugallery website. My intention for the next two weeks will be to spend a little less time in the studio and some more time sketching as well as meditating. This fall felt like a mad dash to get the public art project completed and to finish some artworks for clients. Now that I have some time to regroup I am going to take a few days to just be.
