John Brooks Fine Art Photography

"My art explores the realationship of the viewer with the subject matter and attempts to expose what is not normally perceived. My years of study of architectural form through my work has shaped my perception of the subject. Many cultures and varieties of landscapes have influenced my work."

Boarded Up, Yucatan - Archival print 45 x 30 cm

John Brooks has practiced the art of photography since his teen years and has employed the full range of equipment and techniques in this art including processing his own films and printing his own images. Extensive use of film cameras across all formats and a wide range of digital equipment allows him to take on most subject matters with technical expertise. His main philosophy is that to create a good image a camera is unnecessary, but the eye and brain are the key essentials for composition and creativity. With numerous exhibitions of his work across the continents in recent years, he has accumulated over 10 international awards for his work.

"My work always reflects an emotional response to the subject matter. This is essential in the creation of any piece of art and without that, it becomes merely a pictorial photograph.

Originally working in monochrome as a preferred medium allowed me to concentrate on the composition of images in geometric terms. The transition to color was brought about by a shift in the art-form which arose in the 1960’s making me aware that creativity was also possible using color emulsions.

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.

In the last ten years, some of my work has also been documentary and narrative and is representative of my extensive travels around the world.

Since 2011 I have explored new areas of image presentation through a constructivist approach involving re-imagined landscape. This is achieved by a multi-image capture of the subject and subsequently reconstructing it."

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."

Con Art - Acrylic and graphite on canvas 38 x 58 in.

Born in Ghent, Belgium and currently residing in the USA, Max Werner studied Fine Art at the Byam Shaw School of Art, London, and the Slade School of Art, University College London where he later taught Printmaking in both schools until 1990 when he set up his own etching workshop in London.

In 1997 Max Werner moved to Argentina, and until 2003 worked in Buenos Aires. Commissioned for 3 years in succession by the Art House Gallery of Buenos Aires, he travelled extensively across the different regions of Argentina, producing a body of work which consisted in its majority of large landscapes painted on canvas, although a lot of those landscapes contain observations of the various rural activities of those regions, such as cattle auctions, gauchos, and their horses, etc…

In 2003, Werner moved to the USA. Two of the most important public commissions Max worked on were in 1991, with the decoration of the Lisbon "Enter Campos" Underground Station, using the unique technique of etching on limestone. The other was a painting for the Household Cavalry (Queen Elizabeth II personal regiment) in 2003 for an event in London called "The Presentation of Standards and Guidons Parade" in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen. Max has exhibited over the years in many countries in Europe, Asia, and North and South America.

“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.”

Looking at the Colors #2 - Mixed media 57 x 65 in.

Tadas Zaicikas (1974) was born in Lithuania, earned a Master's Degree at the KTU(1996). Since 2013, he lives and works between Canada and Saint Pierre and Miquelon. He is a Member La Mda- the association with a national competence of all professional artists from visual arts stated in France.

“Painterly brushstrokes built up rich textural landscapes, abstract reflections of moods, Tadas’ canvases are as he describes products of “instinctive dance between the conscious and the subconscious.” Expressive yet cohesive each painting express a unique feeling and allows the viewer to contemplate for hours.” - Myrina Tunberg Georgiou (Circle Foundation Curator)

“It starts with an idea, a glimpse of reality, or an emotion from a photograph. It materializes and takes shape. It is full of color, feeling, intensity, and wantonness. It has the ability to raise the spirit. It has a message. It is personal. It is a creation. It is the work of an artist. It is art.”

Under the Sea - Acrylic on canvas 20 x 16 in.

"I grew up and currently live in Southern California.  It is home to me, my husband and my two children. While attending Fullerton College in the early 1990's, I took Art History, Painting and Drawing classes. Art was my niche and my happy place. It was at that time I knew I had a passion for acrylic brush painting. After college I did paint for a time, then my busy life took precedence. I had to put my artwork on hold for a while. Marriage (to my high school sweetheart), two children, etc. took priority. Now, my kids are older and I'm back to doing what I love... painting. 

My paintings focus on bold colors and clean lines. Some of my paintings focus on a simple subject and others tell more of a story. Many of my pieces are nature and travel inspired. Other works are more contemporary themed. Acrylic paints are usually my medium of choice. Much of my work on canvas is created with a constant blend of bright acrylic color.

I'm pleased to say that I have been in several live galleries and online juried exhibitions.  Some of my pieces have been awarded. I have had works published in artists magazines. My paintings have been sold to private collectors, some who have commissioned me to paint additional pieces for them. There is no better compliment.

I believe each piece of artwork should be a challenge for me to create.  It is a necessity to have to think through every brush stroke, color blend, composition and subject matter. Taking a painting from an empty white canvas to something unique and captivating is the best feeling on earth! Art is a great communicator...everyone sees it differently. This is the inspiration that keeps me painting until my fingers ache."

“In making the works of art, I create patterns which are printed, and then I incorporate three-dimensional elements into these settings. These images are then photographed using specific light sources in order to accentuate the layering of dimensions.”

Copper River - Photographic print 18 x 4 in. $320

"I studied Fine Art at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa and specialized in Sculpture. Creating three-dimensional work was the start of my artistic career, and I admired the works of the ancients in fresco and high relief. When I immigrated to Canada, I was introduced to photography as a fine art medium. I became intrigued by flat art which uses stylistic elements that give the illusion of three dimensions. Fundamentally, my art has been evolving as a meeting ground between three-dimensionality and the more minimalistic flat art style, achieved through layering images by flattening and extruding dimensions. Narratives unfold within this new landscape with the thematic focus being on the interplay between people and the social and private environments in which they interact."
