Lexie Loader — Art Review At Empire Coffee

Upon entering Empire, the art gave a nice feel to the overall vibe of the cafe. They were well-textured, detailed works that covered a good array of subject matter: ocean scenes with old-fashioned sailboats, miscellaneous packs of smokes, a couple portraits… My favorites were the beautiful nudes of women. They were executed with a classy and traditional style, mashing realistic perception with some subtle abstract touches here and there. I found the nudes to be a great use of paint, color, tone and shading. My favorite piece from the selection was “Purple Quick Study”: This piece in particular had the feel of viewing some misty memory of a past lover, who is fixated in contemplation… while in the nude. Oh my!
