Artists On Review
Caustically Precise: Gary Aagaard
"I tend to be irked by political and religious hypocrisy, apathy (relating to war, the environment, etc.) and dogma of any stripe leading to social and spiritual tunnel vision. These themes are prevalent in many of my paintings although often explored using satire and humor as opposed to a sledgehammer."
#WantToLiveHere: Asta Caplan
"As an artist, I'm captivated by light and life. To observe short-lived, mesmerizingly manifold and constantly changing aspects of beauty in life is enough - I believe - to capture something deeper in human intellect and wonder. At their best artworks become life companions to their viewer."
Ceramics and Installation: Mary Di Iorio
Mary Di Iorio collaborated in the formation of the Faculty of Arts, Federal University of Uberlândia - MG, where she was a teacher and Chair of the Department. She is the author of the book "Ceramics in Brazil: Systematization Bibliographic." and has been published in critical catalogs, magazines, books, newspapers etc.
Mixed media: Ritva Georgiades
Born and raised in Finland, Ritva Georgiades has lived in England since 1969. Her art has been in many group exhibits and international art fairs. Ritva enjoys experimenting with different materials to express her ideas. Rather than focusing on a single style, her practice covers themes from figurative to abstract. The artist holds a BA (Honors) in Fine Arts Degree from Surrey Institute of Art and Design.
Dimitrina Stamboldjiev Kutriansky: Romantic Naturalism
Dimitrina Kutriansky's style can best be characterized as "romantic naturalism," an expression of her desire to capture and convey the inherent beauty that can be found within the seemingly ordinary corners of the natural world, while also creating a strong sense of place and atmosphere.
Painterly Political: Christopher Pothier
“Masterfully executed, rich brushstroke and an intricately balanced focus guiding the viewer’s eye around the canvas and forcing it into the center of the scene, Christopher Pothier’s paintings carry the surreal to the political in an array of visual metaphors. His works, sumptuous yet delicate, present philosophical allegories that invite the viewer to contemplate social, civil and very intimate issues.” - Myrina Tunberg Georgiou (Circle Foundation Curator)
Repetitive Motif: Ingrid Steckelberg
"My work tells the fictional story of the red gloves, which were thrown away only to discover a new sphere of utility. Taking found objects as my starting point, thoughts and ideas are transferred and new visual themes discovered which circle around questions of identity and artistic self-awareness."
Beneath the Surface: Vicky Talwar
" Inspired by what lies beneath the surface, I experiment with mixed media to unravel hidden layers, creating an illusion of depth. Layering and texturing is a key theme in my work, exposing the intricacy of the natural world and in ourselves."
Painstakingly Beautiful: Daisuke Okamoto
Daisuke Okamoto’s drawing “OKAINA IMAGE” investigates the cycle of life in the complex, biomorphic, narratives of the organic. Influenced by all that are sci-fi, nationalism and psychedelic culture; Okamoto’s drawings are intricate systems of penmanship.
Passages: Greta Schnall
"My main focus is photography with extreme digital editing processing. This means that I am creating pictures and graphics from architectural, natural and abstract subjects with often surreal components. My favorite themes are facades of modern buildings or parts of them, which I'm digitally editing.”
The Medium is the Message: Christa Schmid-Ehrlinger
“The material finds the idea, the idea finds the material.”
Nodular Creatures: Satomi Sugimoto
"I have always been attracted to forms and lines since I was a child. I see motifs of life reflected in my work including organic forms, elemental forces, body parts of humans, insects and animals. My art-making is a spiritual process; a search for the essence of objects."
From Russia with Love: Natalia Bragina
Bragina has had no fewer than fifteen solo exhibitions including shows in Sweden and the USA as well as art auctions in Paris, France. Bragina recently exhibited at New York World Art Fair 2016, the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in New York City and opened her most recent color show VISION at Marina Tsvetaeva Museum, Moscow.
Touched by Philip McKay
"After years of creating digital art I was still searching what exactly I wanted to achieve and create in my work. I came across the Belgian surreal artist Rene Magritte. When I first saw his work it was then that I wanted to create scenes of idiotic and unreal places."
Majestic Landscape: Charles E. Hall
“I am a disabled Vietnam Veteran, and I started doing photography on advice from one of my counselors as a tool to help me cope with my PTSD. All my photos have special meaning to me as it is not only photography to me, it is also therapy."
Unique Technique: Federico Pisciotta
"The video player in plexiglass backlit by RGB led lamps, distorts the balance of traditional painting, creating a transitional space within the picture that underlines the precariousness and the illusions of the post-modern society."
Patricia Van Den Nieuwenhuijzen (Manzitti): Sensual Abstraction
Patricia Manzitti was born and raised in Australia to Italian parents. A self-taught artist, over the years she has developed her artistic skills through a variety of mediums, including acrylics, pastels, oil, and charcoal but she prefers oil.
The Small Things: Rina Suzuki
Rina Suzuki was born in Taiwan and raised in Japan to a family of artists. She is currently attending a small liberal arts college and is in the process of earning a Degree in Visual & Performing Arts with an emphasis in Studio Art.
Afloat the Surreal: Fuminori Ohashi
Fuminori Ohashi was born 1976 in Kanumacity Tochigi, Japan and has exhibited internationally.
Young Photographer: Sarang Bhand
"A keen student of photography, I’m still exploring the Art and love to experiment with new techniques."
Carving New Narratives: Elizabeth Frank
"My carving style is inspired by iconic images found in folk, tribal and primitive art. The themes I choose are personal yet universal. My love for the natural world and my concern for the environment translate into works about the complex relationship between humans and nature in this modern age."
Attention to Detail: Max Werner
"My work is generally based on observation of my environment, or what surrounds me. Landscapes, public places such as museums, libraries pubs, etc... This feeds my imagination, produces ideas, and the result of this has variously been described as realist narrative, with a touch of surrealism."
Visual Thinking: Wolfgang Bellingradt
"My painting is visualized thinking. I do not see myself as a reminder or a missionary, but as researcher, perceiver, observer, questioner, and documentarist, for instance in the sense of Alexander von Humboldt or Charles Darwin."
