"I first discovered the humorous and serious figure of Punchinello in the work of G.D.Tiepolo and realized that Punchinello could become the protagonist for my contemporary narratives. My Punchinello is distinctly different — slimmer without the hump, driven by his sexual appetite and search for self."

Paul Hartel

"I think of my work as celebrating the spirit of the ‘inner child’ through an improvisational energy, retained in strokes, lines, and colours. I strive to create a visual immediacy that keeps the viewer’s eye in perpetual motion."

Restive Dreamer - Mixed media on canvas 30 x 24 in.

"Informally trained, I paint and draw with mixed media including oils, acrylics, oil pastels and charcoal, in figurative, abstract and neo-expressionist styles, with influences that include DeKooning, Mitchel, Kline, Wool, Pollock, Twombly, Clemente, Basquiat, Graham, Motherwell, Frankenthaler, and Miro. I've exhibited in art shows and enjoyed representation by art galleries in New York City, Los Angeles, West Virginia, Waterford, Sligo and Dublin with works currently in residence at Green Gallery, Dublin, Ireland. I've sold, auctioned and gifted works for private collectors and charitable organizations in the U.S., Europe and Australia. I've been privileged to be featured in many art book publications, magazines, cover art, online galleries and social media.”

Paul Hartel was born in 1969 in the USA and today lives in Sligo, Ireland.

Gabriele Musebrink

"The material is not only a means of creation of the artwork itself but represents a part that is intrinsically tied to it. The extraordinary perception is based on and comes with a feeling of the existence of reality." - Marzenna Guzowska, Art Critic, Warsaw

Norge Stone No.17, 2020 - Fresco limestone and pigments 50 x 50 cm

Gabriele Musebrink has German and Polish roots. After finishing her art studies, she worked as a graphic and visual artist for several German museums and institutions between 1983 and 1993. Since 1993, Musebrink has been working exclusively as an independent artist in her own studio in Essen.

Rosemarie Armstrong

"Atmosphere, earth and water are the elements which inspire my artistic practice. My oil paintings depict the constant transformation of the natural world. The creative process begins in nature through plein air studies, sketches, and experiences which build the foundation for my studio work."

China Beach - Oil on canvas 12 x 20 in.

Canadian artist Rosemarie Armstrong has been painting for over four decades. Her seascape and landscape paintings reflect her artistic soul and her professional caliber. The masterful use of light, colour and composition is deliberate, her process of layering the oil paint, results in an illuminated quality of atmosphere, earth and water. Rosemarie's paintings are representational yet imaginative; they celebrate movement, textures and images abundant in nature but often unseen due to their fleeting nature. The opportunity to witness nature's majesty draws Rosemarie to explore Canada's majestic and often remote locations.

Contrasting themes of turbulence, serenity, darkness and illumination underscore Rosemarie's emotional connection to our environment. She believes that through artists and their work, people can envision the best of our world and the human spirit. Rosemarie is a Signature Member of Artists for Conservation International (AFC), the world's leading artist group supporting the environment, representing 500 of the world's leading nature/wildlife artists from 30 countries. AFC's mission is to support wildlife and habitat conservation and environmental education through art that celebrates nature.

Rosemarie Armstrong is an artist creating work of immense artistic interest. Her paintings are enjoyed in over eighty private collections around the globe; publications include AFC International Exhibit of Nature in Art Hardcover Editions, Art Tour International Magazine Top 60 Masters of Contemporary Art Catalogue and Book Cover Rodopi Publications Turku University, Finland. She is an Associate Member of Oil Painters of America and National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society. Rosemarie continues to establish her artistic voice and impact.

d.W. Whitfield

Untitled - Acrylic 80 x 60 cm

“Born a long time ago in the North East of England studying at Sunderland College of Art. To support myself, I took many jobs, mostly in cartography, land surveying and later for many years as a qualified psychiatric nurse before retiring at the age of 55 to concentrate fully on art. Throughout I drew and painted, illustrating books published by Heron(Steinbeck, Wheatley, Graves, Iliad) and exhibited in Manchester, London, Scotland and the USA.

My work at this time was in the surrealistic style using an airbrush and inks. Within the last few years, I felt my work did not develop, becoming stranded in technical expertise and lacking an emotive truthfulness. So I changed the medium to watercolor and brush, and this more freer fluid medium was reflected in the more expressive style I wished for away from the more exact, tight, controlled style inherent in surrealism.

Whilst still working in the figurative tradition, I believe as Francis Bacon stated, that a new realism is called for; and with this in mind, I attempt to create 'meaningful' painting rather than a decorative picture?

I believe that art needs to reflect and challenge the changes within all societies and attempt an insightful approach of challenge to avoid sinking into complacency and banality.

My specific interest lies in the interactive play of an individuals psyche within a personal or group dialogue; The 'truer' personal nature of such an individual is often hidden behind a bland mask of social etiquette; With this concept in mind, my work is not labeled or titled; so allowing the observer a greater and freer interpretation of my work without any preconceived ideas."

Brenda Hartill

"My work is experimental, abstract and embossed. Collagraph, etching, watercolour, collage and encaustic works. My main love is abstracting the essence of the landscape in richly coloured textured works, often enhanced with silver and gold leaf. Recent works include a series of watercolour paintings with collagraph embossings. My on-going fascination is with erosion, weather patterns, natural textures, growth formations and universal organic forms.”

Heavenly Bodies  Earthrise - Etching with carborundum paper (Limited Ed. /100) 99 x 71 cm

Born in London, England, Brenda Hartill emigrated to New Zealand with her parents in the late 1950s and was educated there, graduating FA Honours at the Elam School of Fine Art Auckland. She returned to London in the late 1960s to study Theatrical Design at the Central School of Art and Design. 

In the early 80s, Hartill turned towards printmaking and has since been successfully publishing her prints. She is a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE).

"I have always been involved in the arts. I am a published poet, made mosaic dining room walls, done interior design, and taught modern dance. Along the way, I taught myself Photoshop and began designing at work. I made friends with a number of artists and was encouraged by them to also try painting."

Larry Garmezy

"My photographs chronicle what I find visually and intellectually intriguing in the natural world. Understanding the physical processes that create patterns in nature allows me to capture unusual impressions/abstractions of the visual landscape."

Dancing Leaves #2 - Photograph 24 x 18 in.

“The common thread across my work is the effect created by the distortion of light, color, and shape created either by ripples in a spring, surface tension around a leaf, the convoluted fracturing on a cliff, or the impurities in a 400-year-old pane of glass.”

A graduate of Amherst College, Penn State University and a lifelong photographer, Garmezy has had four solo shows since becoming a member artist at Archway Gallery in Houston. His work has been in a number of juried shows across the U.S. and Europe and hangs in homes, offices and public spaces across the U.S and Great Britain, and has been published in Spotlight Magazine Issue 15 & 17.

ALBY – Alison Barrows-Young

"The natural qualities that animate my remote home, in the Pacific Northwest, fill my life and my imagery. I have been profoundly taken by its wild beauty; alive with idyllic disposition and dramatic personae that invoke an animist sensibility, and compel a strong sense of belonging to the earth."

Anthem - Digital painting printed on aluminum 20 x 40 in.

Alison Barrows-Young was born August 27, 1958, in New York City and spent her childhood in Ontario, Canada (1968 - 82). She earned her BFA (1980) at Antioch College and went on to complete an MFA (1984) at Florida State University. Barrows-Young holds an M.Ed. (2010) from Concordia University and did adjunct professorships between 1984 and 2008.

“I have come to believe that I require art. For me, art is a compelling way of life. It promotes essential self-expression as well as inter-relational and inter-cultural connections. For me, it is the most powerful way to articulate my quandaries as well as my discoveries, passions and dreams.

Through the years, my artistic voice has gathered into an alliance with my preference to live in the wilderness, to preserve nature and to advocate for the earth. I am devoted to self-awareness, living peacefully within our biosphere and nurturing youthful persistence. I hold the path as a mother, grandmother and mentor for those who are borne to me through my body, my wanderings and upon the wind."
