FOCUS ON THE ART / SPOTLIGHT ON THE ARTIST
Roles We Left Behind: Mariana Peirano
“My life experiences and roles have shaped who I am as an artist today. My paintings all have a piece of the Argentinian child, the teenage immigrant, the young wife and mother, the dedicated teacher, the stressed administrator, and the many other roles I’ve left behind.”
The Art of Building A Portrait: Jessica Sebok
“I find myself always coming back to faces and facial structures. Building is actually the most appropriate word I could use to describe my process. From afar, my portraits seem general realistic, but on closer inspection, one finds flecks, flicks, and blocks of medium that creates a face.”
Intimate Concrete: Luna Milo
Independent Chilean photographer and visual artist, Luna Milo has now returned to Santiago, Chile, after 10 years of living abroad. Her photography, writing, and editorial work has been published in the United States, Canada, Chile, Mexico and Europe.
Memento Mori: S.O. Sivertsen
Sivertsen’s works reflect a freedom and passion with which he seems to approach his medium. Skillfully executed these watercolors reveal the artist’s unique visual perspective and a strong ability to control the brush but also disclose a surrendering to the medium, letting the brush, the color and the water guide the creation of each unique field of the composition.
Emotion VS Memory: Momo Meng
“Emotions are not like memories. Memories last, emotions fade away rapidly. You can easily recall images of a significant moment in your life, but you barely can experience the same emotion twice again. That’s why I capture emotions in my art, brightness or darkness, they all leave marks.”
Minimalist Impressions: Elin Hannah
Elin’s art is deeply rooted in her temperament, and her creative expression is directly connected to her emotional impressions. Where there are contrasts, balance and harmony is created – both in her life and on canvas.
Making the Ephemeral Linger: Jonel Scholtz
“I do not set out to make art every day, that would be idiotic. I just set out to be happy. My portraits are moments in the past captured on canvas. They should have dissipated into the past, but I dragged them back into the present.”
Accumulation, Juxtaposition, and Intertwining: Miodrag Peric
Born 1971 in Novi Sad, Serbia, Miodrag Peric graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts, from the Sculpture department in Novi Sad (1997). Peric is a member of EAA European Artists Association, Essen, Germany, Artists Association of Vojvodina, Novi Sad, Serbia, and Art Director and Founder of International Symposium for Sculptors, IN VIVO, Novi Sad, Serbia.
