Jean Richardson at Mirada Fine Art

Jean Richardson is now at Mirada Fine Art, and we are absolutely thrilled to have her paintings grace our walls!

An image of the horse is what artist Jean Richardson believes to be the perfect vehicle to express the true subject of her work—the unbridled motion, energy and indomitable spirit of humans.

Born and raised in Oklahoma, an admiration for the strength and beauty of her equine friends was almost inevitable.  Entranced by the mythological aura of the horse throughout history, as well as the real-life beauty of the magnificent animals, Ms. Richardson has always felt they encapsulated the oft restless, sometimes heroic, efforts of their two-legged counterparts.

Armed with a Bachelors of Fine Art degree from Wesleyan College, Jean strengthened her technical abilities with the Art Students League in New York.  Having mastered painterly skills, she went on to develop her own distinctive style.  Frequently working in very large formats, loose brushstrokes combine with ridges of palette knife color, bringing to life the simultaneously resolute and passionate spirit of her pieces.  Almost hidden within this kaleidoscopic energy, the expressionist beauty of horses develops, prancing stomping and leaping across her canvasses.

Throughout several decades, Jean Richardson’s work has become a mainstay of both public and private collections.  She is frequently featured in museums, design academies and national art publications throughout the United States.  Mirada Fine Art is the only gallery in Colorado to represent her incredible work!

Juan Ezcurdia at Mirada Fine Art

Mirada Fine Art is thrilled to introduce Mexican-artist Juan Ezcurdia!

Born in the most populated city in North America, Mexico City, Juan Ezcurdia was naturally drawn to the study of psychology as a young man.  Painting was learned initially as a source of self-expression and stress relief.  His innate talent was recognized almost immediately, however, and interest in his artistic work was meteoric.

Juan’s whimsical but professional creations led to an offer to illustrate children’s books, thus launching him onto his second career path.  Recognized by Mexico’s Ministry of Art & Culture, Ezcurdia was awarded the country’s prestigious National Illustration Prize. Seeking to escape the frenetic pace of a huge city, in 1997 Ezcurdia sought refuge in the culturally-rich, art-centric hub of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico.

Juan Ezcurdia is recognized worldwide for his wholly unique interpretations of animals and people.  His paintings, although rendered simply, are inarguably sophisticated in their sense of color, shading and composition.  In his world, different species not only interact, they also coexist and intermingle on equal planes.  It’s not unusual to have a woman and a bull in a three-piece suit enjoying a bicycle ride on a sunny afternoon.  Humorous yet heartfelt, his figures are seemingly uncomplicated but the overall feel is undoubtedly polished and painterly.  His style has been likened to a combination of Gary Larson the cartoonist meets the Masters of Art.

Juan Ezcurdia’s work is shown throughout Europe, Canada and the Caribbean.  Mirada Fine Art is extremely privileged to be the solo outlet to represent his work in the United States.
