Artists On Review
Impressions in Black and White: Gary Wagner
" I work exclusively in black and white. This medium best relates to the shapes, lines, and tones of the landscape and more fully captures what I am viewing when I look at a scene. Color imagery for me is too close to reality and more of a visual record, than an artistic interpretation. I understand that the world is in color, and we see in color, but I find the magic of light on the sea and land to best be conveyed in black and white."
One Thousand Words: Janice Alamanou
Janice’s style is mixed as she has evolved over many years and her work adapts as she changes. The people she portrays are all beautifully individual and the landscapes she amalgamates into the bodies are a natural progression of her work, depicting more than what can be seen. Issues Janice highlights are within the role of women, their feelings and lives, the environment, people and the affect of people.
Reconstructed Reality: Jussi Pirttioja
"I paint what I would like to see and what does not yet exist. I pick random fragments from the flood of images I face every day and try to tie them together with the language of paint. Sometimes the results intrigue me, hopefully, others too. Meanings should not be imposed too heavily on my work."
Between Metaphors: Pirkko Mäkelä-Haapalinna
"I search for the tangible surface between the inner and the observable world by introspection during the painting process. I get ignited when something gets a metaphorical meaning. I bridge the soul and reason within the concept of time. Through imagery, I consider the complexities of these dualities."
Dream and Memory: Anita Kovacevic
“My whole concept and approach to art is simple just as my philosophy of mind is. I'm inspired by the simplest and quieter side of life and enjoy peaceful natural escapes. My images reflect my inner vision and my floating between memories and dreams."
Land Art: IHARA
Japanese sculptor, IHARA was born in 1943 and has been awarded at the Nika exhibit (Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum) every year between 1967-74. In 1976 he became an Honorary Member of Japan Flower Arrangement Foundation. In 1986 he built a sculpture at Misawa Gate Riverside Park in Himeji City, Hyogo Prefecture and in 1989 3 of his sculptures were built on the main street of Kagawa Bridge station in Hyogo ken.
Abstract Expressionism: Mary E. Morgan
"I use acrylic and oil, and often I combine these materials. Because I am inspired by the colors of nature, my work is colorful. I would like to quote Helen Frankenthaler who said “it is a combined conscious and subconscious effort “ and I agree that often it can be spontaneous."
Bodypaintography: Cynthia Fleischmann
“My 'bodypaintography' has been an exploration of connecting humans visually into their environments, similar to how animals relate to their spaces using matching spots, stripes or colors. All models are naked to celebrate the body, and red hands are my signature, representing aspects of humanity.”
Painting Today: Arthur Jacob
"My canvas begins as a photograph and the mouse as my brush. From that point on, my creative work focuses on exploring shapes, colors, and movement that are in the photograph. I don’t record the steps taken to achieve this focus, so each work is unique and new. This allows me to take a new journey of discovery with each piece I create."
The Monumental vs The Organic: Lobykin
"A compelling aspect of art is its potential to transport us from the ordinary to the ecstatic, a heightened state of clarity and bliss." - Lew Carson
Oscillating between Dream and Reality: Gaetanne Lavoie
"My current body of work focuses on conveying ideologies of freedom. I have been working to express my personal philosophies of spirituality in relation to the human condition by developing narrative compositions that project emotional contrast. Within the experience of each emotional state lies the potential for release and within that release lives freedom. I create psychologically spiritual narratives that are meant to produce a visceral, emotional reaction in the viewer. I intend to yield a lasting impact that induces free thought and dialogue."
Light On Canvas: Ronda Richley
American Artist, Ronda Richley lives in Orlando. She holds a Master of Arts Concentration in Studio Arts, Painting from California State University, Northridge, California as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts from College of Design Architecture, and Art, University of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Reclaiming The Sacred Source: Lynn Creighton
“I create the female form from a sacred source of inspiration and commitment. This work has evolved from my deep inner conviction that female energy, fully aware of itself, will contribute essential wisdom to critical issues facing the planet.”
Fauvism: Maria Teresa Guala
Maria studied at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts of Turin in the ‘60s under Prof. Scroppo. At the same time, she studied languages and she has worked as a translator. Due to work and family, she interrupted her art practice for a long time. Resuming in 2000 with a solo exhibition at Micrò Gallery, Turin and at the Promotrice of Fine Arts in Turin, 2001. She participated in several exhibitions in Europe and Russia, US and received different awards.
New Realism: Jon Bøe Paulsen
"I consider myself an artist belonging to the group of New Realists where the human being is looked upon in a new light and painted strongly figuratively. The meaning of Clair Obscure, in Italian chiaroscuro, is light in the darkness. Less light, less colour."
Geometry Around Us: Miroslav Vrzala
"Look ahead, look up, look down, look left, look right, don't forget to look behind. There is always something to photograph. Through my love for the arts, architecture, and photography I create unique, abstract photographs."
Dialogues: Sylvia Galos
"I begin with an idea, and then it becomes something else." - Pablo Picasso
"Spontaneity switches with the painstaking search after the perfect stroke and color. From mind to guts and back. The process of painting - it is a dialogue between myself and the painting. Sometimes I receive direct answers to my questions while painting, sometimes the painting invites me to find answers myself."
Art as Survival: David A. Feingold
"My artwork consists of imagery that connects with thoughts and feelings born out of my own lived experience with bipolar disorder. Distinct mood states and fluctuations occur to some degree within all people. This enables my art to reach a varied audience, with different aesthetic preferences."
Digital Art: Karin Monschauer
"Since 2010, I have been creating paintings with art and design computer programs. The knowledge of these software packages has allowed the creation of canvases with colours and shapes that were not possible with the half cross-stitch technique. The ability to use digital art tools allows me to develop my art more and more."
The Process Is the Message: Bea Last
"My practice is process-led, the creative process to me is very much a journey, reflected in life. The monochromatic aspect of my work was process-led. Colour had become redundant and a distraction. I wanted to focus on the marks I was making."
