In her 2023 masterpiece "Standing Figure, Red & Blue Variations," Jocelyn Hobbie brings the tactile medium of oil on paper to a new level of vivid expression. One of the painting's most striking elements is the subject's red and black scarf, which pops against the subtle skin tones with a boldness that draws the eye yet retains an exquisite delicacy in its detailed rendering. The background serves as a counterpoint to the figure, composed of intricate patterns of flora and fauna that demonstrate Hobbie's skillful blending of natural motifs with aesthetic innovation. The piece serves as an expansive canvas for a juxtaposition of color and form, making it a remarkable addition to the discourse of contemporary portraiture. Hobbie is an internationally renowned artist who has exhibited globally with exhibitions at the Nassima Landau Foundation, Tel Aviv, Carl Kostyal Gallery, Stockholm, Galleria Glance, Torino, and many more. Hobbie was the 2006 recipient of the New York Foundation of the Arts award in Painting. Hobbie is represented by Fredricks & Fraiser Gallery, New York, and Jessica Silverman Gallery, San Francisco.
