"In fact, the picture is the story. The viewer draws his conclusions from those gestures, facial expressions, the timbre of the voice that comes to him. The critic and the sympathizers come close to understand what the artist mumbles to himself. And then, there are already options.."

Krasi Dimtch

"My artistic practice focuses on the development of atypical means for representing the symbols of Language and the creation of visual, textual, and sound art that encode linguistic contents and explore the structures of Language viewed as a repository of ideas."

Alien Forms Reveal The Meanings Of Life - Art - Death And Poetry - Quadriptych digital prints on Plexiglas 60 x 60 in. 2.400€

"My artistic practice focuses on the development and the use of atypical means for representing the symbols of Language through digital imagery, texts, and sounds. My textual art - comprising of wordscapes and thesauri poems - documents the one-of-a-kind transformations of sequences of English synonyms into sentences and poems. My digital sound art demonstrates how textual artworks can be digitally transformed into sequences of non-speech sounds and experienced as musical abstractions.

My visual art is the result of a symbiosis between my imagination and custom software for representing words and sentences as colorful abstractions. My working process starts with the compilation of a text. The words of the text are then digitally converted by custom software into different abstract representations. Finally, I manually create a visual “translation” of the text by using a computer mouse instead of a paintbrush and generated by the software abstract representations instead of acrylic paints. My digital technique includes elements that are highly subjective, and my artworks are created in a way possible for the first time in the 21st century.”

Krasi Dimtch is multidisciplinary Canadian artist who creates visual, textual, and sound art that encodes linguistic contents and explores the structures of Language viewed as a repository of ideas.  Her study of the relationship between Thought and Language led to the formulation of patented methods for language generation (CIPO - Patent 2704163) as well as the creation of software generating sentences as abstract images and sequences of sounds.  Some of the places Krasi Dimtch has recently presented her works are: Artist Statement # 3, CICA Museum,2018, South Korea; Winners of International Competition, Los Angeles, USA,2017; ArtVenice Biennale IV Italie, (Italie, 2017) ; LACDA Represented Artists Exhibit, Los Angelis Center for Digital Art (USA, 2017); Solo exhibits at gallery Luz, Montreal, Canada, 2017 and 2016.

Jose Luis Quinones

Contemporary artist's Jose Luis Quinones' passion for perfection and artistic ability combine for an exciting blend of dazzling colors and the illusion of a three-dimensional surface. His oversized paintings are shaped on the outer edge to conform to the object which enhances the idea of realism.

POP ART, ZERO CALORIES - Oil on canvas D. 52 in. $15,000

"I was born in Yauco, Puerto Rico and moved with my family to Ohio as a young child. My passion for realism lead me to pursue my career in fine art. I completed my Art Education at Cooper School of Art and the Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland, Ohio.

My oil paintings were originally based on a series of objects from my father’s small grocery store. I was fascinated with painting objects, and soon the backgrounds became unimportant to me, so I let the gallery walls serve that purpose. I shaped the canvas to fit the contour of the object involved.

Like Rosenquist, I had painted mural size billboards for an outdoor media company for many years. Constantly painting on such a large scale had influenced the size of my artwork. I found that size was a significant factor on the impact of the viewer. I was also captivated by the abstract quality of something so large when observed up close. My paintings are done in oils and hand brushed to look like it is created with an airbrush technique.

Recently, I am in the process of investigating paintings shaped in a circular format. I still strive for a three-dimensional feeling even though the painting is a flat surface.  My fascination with realism and the shaped canvas will enable me to envision many new and intriguing paintings. It will be interesting to see how far I can manipulate the shaped facade to create a two-dimensional surface into a three-dimensional illusion of genuine excitement!"

"When people ask me how I produce all this art, I say that without making art I couldn't accomplish anything else. Art keeps me whole; moving forward. There is no question whether I have the time; without art, I would have no life. The only question for me is what type of art am I producing today."
