Artists On Review
Re-Art: Francesca Busca
Busca is part of the BAMM Committee in the role of Exhibition Officer, and has taken permanent residency at the London School of Mosaic, where she holds a shared studio and teaches short courses from February 2018 on the innovative subject of "Mosaic as Mixed Media". Francesca is also a member of the Governing Body of the London School of Mosaic.
Re-imagined Landscape: John Brooks
"The usage of color transformed my work and added another dimension to the possibilities of creativity and focused on abstraction within the areas of urban and rural landscape influenced by the work of Harry Callahan and Joel Meyerowitz. This period of my work continues to the present time with studies in both the “Deadpan” and abstracted styles."
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.
Souls: Pia Forsberg
“In recent years, I've painted unknown people who no longer exist. Feeling of timelessness. Something that is left when everything else disappears.”
Milinkov: Ornamental Surrealism
Serbian Artist, Milinkov lives and works in Paris, France. He has produced hundreds of artworks over the years in his unique and distinctive style.
Everything is A Medium: Sara Hupas
"My works result from the need to organize and give meaning to what people have abandoned and treated as waste. I draw inspiration from phenomena, situation and the specific characteristics of matter. I create abstract works containing an emotional element referring to the psyche and human experience."
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)
Pastel Bridges: 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."
The Shape of Jana Osterhus' Mind
"I already had my own style as a child. As a nine-year-old I started an art education, which I completed at the age of sixteen. I studied the image-building of the Old Masters and developed my technique, form and content. Overlay, time, reinterpretation and refractions of the apparent shape my work."
The Watercolorist: Arlene Cornell
American artist, Arlene Cornell has had major exhibits in galleries in NYC (NY), Toronto (CAN), Spring Lake (NJ) and Rhinebeck (NY) with paintings in numerous collections through the USA and internationally. A self-taught watercolorist, Cornell is a member of the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club and the Brooklyn Watercolor Society. She has won numerous awards in juried art exhibitions.
A Realm Beautiful as Imagined: Gus Fine Art
"I'm just trying to show the world what my mind imagines in life; real situations seen through a "filter" in a special, imaginative way. "I'm a dream hunter," I try to capture forever what goes through my mind at that moment when I see an image, I let out that 'dream'."
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."
Public Sculpture: Walter Gordinier
American sculptor, Walter Gordinier was born in 1950 in El Paso, Texas and today lives in Portland. Gordinier is a Blue Chip American artist specializing in large-scale sculpture for private and public venues. He conceives, fabricates and installs proprietary, site-specific works of art for both interior and exterior placement. Walter has a highly motivated vision concerning the environment surrounding the sculpture. He designs urban plazas, healing gardens and develops the landscape theme.
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."
The Nordic Perspective: Maija Vanhatapio
"Later I graduated in graphic arts for advertising business and have been an art director in many ad-agencies and during the last years of my working history, I had my own advertising agency. Some years ago I carried out open university studies of fine art in the University of Lapland at Rovaniemi. I also attended several Art courses and workshops."
The Body as a Monument to Beauty and Elegance: Michael Ian Goulding
"My work celebrates the beauty of the female form and spirit. While my aesthetic sense springs from wonder at the variety and mystery of the body's physical reality, my photographs are primarily aimed at recording the beauty of the female form from an abstract point of view."
Building Up and Tearing Down: Tadas Zaicikas
“I experiment with various styles and techniques to create something mixed; spiritually and physically on canvas, by continuously building up and tearing down, layer upon layer, adding and subtracting. An instinctive dance between the conscious and the unconscious until the emotion is expressed.”
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.
PhotoMontage: Anne Jeffery
"I photograph the diminutive landscapes of wild and garden flowers, leaves and grasses, and the birds, bugs, and butterflies that dwell within. My montages merge these photographs with clouds, streams, waterfalls, bubbles, and splashes of color. I intertwine multiple layers into a final composition."
Mixed media: Adi Zur
Adi Zur graduated with Honors (Drawing and Painting) at the Ontario College of Art & Design, Toronto, Ontario. She has studied at The Academy of Art Teachers, Tel-Aviv, Israel and AVNI – Institute of Art, Tel-Aviv, Israel and majored in Philosophy at Tel-Aviv University.
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."
Dance on Canvas: Annamarie Dzendrowskyj
Annamarie Dzendrowskyj seeks to examine the indeterminate nature of 'ways of seeing' and 'being' by exploring fleeting moments of a world in constant flux. These moments in time she sees as suggesting a space, rather than defining a space, one that exists between what is seen and unseen.
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."
