Robert Perriam

“I do not follow any artistic style or seek to imitate the work of any particular artist. I seek only to depict in a natural way the often harsh beauty and lighting of the landscapes of Australia.”

Eucalyptus Bark, Watercolour Effect - Digitally modified photograph

“My preference is for pristine landscapes, trees, and wildflowers, untouched by the hand of man. All of my work is digital, with older photographs digitized from film. Images are presented in a range of artistic effects; an oil/acrylic brushwork effect, a watercolor sketch effect, respecting the detail of the scene, and a streaked aura effect, which some may regard as an aura of the earth. Some are presented as photographic images, where that seems most appropriate.”

Robert Perriam was born, 1944, in Trinidad, West Indies and now lives in Perth, Australia. He holds a Bachelor of Science from The University of Otago, New Zealand, Master of Science, from The University of Western Australia and Graduate Diploma in Business and Administration, Curtin University, Western Australia. He worked for 40 years as a field geologist which took him to remote places in Western Australia. “I carried a camera and photographed the landscapes which I visited. Now retired, I use a small motorhome to make photographic trips to remote and scenic areas. The photographs taken form the basis of my work.”

“A moment is forever.”

Rashomon

"Most months of the year I live in Arlington, Virginia, together with my husband Claus and a Labrador named Becca. The rest of the year I spend in Hamburg, Germany or traveling. I have a studio in both countries. I have painted from an early age but did not begin painting in earnest until my late 50's. After a successful career as a Lawyer, Researcher and International Justice Reform Expert that took me around the globe, I decided a more balanced, creative approach to life was needed. Since then I have painted with several well-known American artists, such as Diane Tessler, Ted Reed, Glen Kessler, Adrienne Wyman, Fred Markham, Jill Banks, and Patrick Kirwin. I also completed a certificate course in International Art History at the Smithsonian Institutes, am competing in plein air and other art competitions and work with different galleries in the Washington DC area.”

“Beautiful renditions of fleeting moments in space, Heike Gramckow’s paintings are balanced and soothing impressions of a landscape as much mesmerizing as ephemeral. The artist lives and works between Germany and the USA and holds a J.D. and Ph.D. in Law from the University of Hamburg.” - Myrina Tunberg Georgiou (Circle Foundation Curator)

Yuxuan Ding

"My work focuses on the cultural conflict between China and America by looking through people who are from these two cultural backgrounds and their response to the cyberbullying issue. I hope to create a dialogue as to how we can better understand each other and be more comfortable together."

Portrait 1 & 2 - Prints on acrylic sheets 36 x 24 in.

Born and raised in China, Yuxuan Ding completed a Bachelor's Degree of Art (2013) from Ohio State University and an MFA from Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts of Washington University in St. Louis (May 2018).

"During my time studying in the United States, I have experienced the differences between Chinese and American culture, which is also the primary focus of my work. I am interested in the exploration of the differences between those two cultures and hope to create a universal language for people to better understand each other.

Since the beginning of my studies at The Washington University of St. Louis, I have been trying to find ways to introduce aspects of Chinese culture to an American audience, while hoping to one day introduce parts of American culture to an audience in China. I initially found little to no success after trying various methods to promote such a “cultural exchange”, and after a semester of attempts, I realized that what I was doing was not in line with my original ideas and plans.

I started by first painting Chinese-style paintings using traditional techniques, in hopes that the audience could be introduced to an important part of Chinese culture; art. It was later that I found another outlet in which I could accomplish my goal, the expression of individuality in Chinese and American culture. During the spring of 2017, I started working on a project, which investigated Internet bullying, and how it affected its targets.

Even though my art pieces represent the different aspects of Chinese and American culture, my works appear to be critical of the differences and similarities found among them when presenting my works to the audience. In using materials often associated with Chinese art, I am willing to not only draw a comparison between the two cultures but to also create a universal culture that can assist people around the world to better understand each other and the role culture has in one.”

Ursa Schoepper

"Nothing is as it seems at first; everything is in process and thus in change. By following this artistic idea, I am creating autonomous pictures of the imagination. My tool is a professional camera and a sophisticated photo editing system. My method requires a conceptual process working with photographic material. The artwork generates its own origin from the photograph and in its result is an autonomous artwork."

The Light Of Summer - Color pigment on aludibond 67 x 100 cm

Ursa Schoepper is developing autonomous artworks that exist as a virtual
reality in a realistic photography. A photography is generated through an
algorithmic grammar into an autonomous work of fine art photography. It is a
transformation of real objects into abstract objects, the transformation of the
concrete image into an abstract artwork, an abstract autonomous photographic
artwork.

Ursa Schoepper first completed her studies in Natural Science with state
examination. In addition, she completed a study in cultural management, state
examinaten, with a concentration in fine arts, new media at Prof. Dr. Eckart
Pankoke, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Krempel, Prof Dr. Michael Bockemühl.
In her Agentur für Virtuelle Denkraeume she was working as a cultural
manager. In 2001 she was awarded the Media Promotion Prize of the German
state of North Rhine-Westphalia for „Das Museum der abwesenden Bilder“.
Since 2003 Ursa Schöpper has been working primarily as a photographic artist.
Her artwork has been exhibited internationally and she is the recipient of
notable awards including the Shakespeare in Art Award, Triennale Verona,
Italy, Certificate of Excellence, Artavita Competition September, Santa Barbara,
CA, the International Prize Michelangelo, Rome and is presented in the
European Art Museum, Denmark.

"I’m working with  “VISUAL SPACE POLYPHONY” (SIMULTANEOUS SPACE VISION.) in two and more than two dimensions. “Visual Space Polyphony” means independent events that happen in space and time simultaneously and subsequently, and articulate together consonance and/or dissonance."

"In order to make my ideas and artworks easier to understand, let’s take an imaginary walk through an imaginary town. On our walk, we experience innumerable things simultaneously. Traffic streams by, people pass us, birds fly overhead, tantalizing smells waft from a bakery shop, the grinding of gears annoys us as we nibble a croissant. As we walk the streets, a great diversity of stimuli bombards us, imparting an overall impression of the town.

How do we arrive at an overall idea of something complex—like this town—that we never seen completely and in the same moment? What kinds of mechanisms create for us a personal, subjective impression? And going a step further, we can even imagine—fiction today, but possible to envision given current technology—that the entire town and all its contents and events are transparent, like an image generated by a CT or PET/CT scanner. The image we see might appear chaotic and unpredictable; however, we can take it in and make sense of it more or less.

Such observations motivated me to investigate three questions:

a. How is it possible to grasp the experience of a simultaneously perceived environment in its many layers, integrating perceptions over time, to reflect changes in the environment?   b. Is there is any way to record this type of experience visually?   c.  Is a three-dimensional structure appropriate to do this?

As we know, perception is a highly complex process. During our walk around town, all of our senses were active and simultaneously registered the events around us. Since our environment was constantly changing and we ourselves were in motion, we perceived large numbers of simultaneous stimuli again and again. We required thousands of such sequences to form an overview of the town. We were able to perceive our surroundings holistically because our brains integrated our perceptions—both simultaneous and sequential—and filled in missing information.

These observations about perception led me to a kind of visual solution in my work, which I refer to as “POLYPHONIC VISUAL SPACE” or “Simultaneous Spatial View.” For me, “POLYPHONIC VISUAL SPACE” means the harmonization, both simultaneously and in sequence, of events taking place in space, often independent of one other. I searched for terms to help me visualize solutions, for example stereometric, simultaneity, transparency, segmentation, multidimensionality, multiple viewpoints, layering and new technologies. These ideas expressed visually are present in all of my works either singly or in combination. The “Programmable Laser bonfire” displayed in the Kinetica Anniversary Show titled ‘The Thin Veil’ show only one example what I described above."
