FOTO ARTE Haydee Yordan

"As an art photographer, I am committed to developing a new photographic language that responds more to my imagination than to what I see with my eyes. I am convinced that photographers should go beyond the usual and be imaginative and creative. No doubt, the photo medium opens its way to art."

Reflections - Digital media 11 x 11 in.

Born and educated in Puerto Rico, Haydee Yordan has traveled extensively and experienced different cultures. Her work has been exhibited in four international photography Biennials, in several art galleries, published in magazines and belongs to private collections.  Yordan has received awards and recognitions by notable institions like the IPA, WPGA and Gala Awards.

"In 2015 I published a controversial photo-book on gender, titled "Borrando Generos" or "Erasing Gender" where I use the camera to creatively photograph the "future" to support my artistic hypothesis about the evolution of a new gender, time and space no one has yet seen. My rebellious and daring personality is evident in my photography."

Jason Levi

"I am a Fine Art Photographer. Many confuse this with photography artwork. It is not. Fine Art Photography is using photography as an expression of art. This allows for the liberal interpretation of the subject, whether it's landscape or portraiture. It's Art, not picture taking."

Jane Gottlieb

"I create images that surprise and intrigue, drawing the viewer in and uplifting them with vibrant color and evocative beauty. I have journeyed to destinations throughout the world taking photographs of the natural and human-made world creating the basis to express my idyllic vision."

Eiffel Tower at Dawn - Archival dye sublimation print aluminum, 30 x 40 in. $2,000

Painter and photographer, Jane Gottlieb has used her explosive colorist skills for the past thirty-five years to hand-paint layers of retouching dyes onto her Cibachrome prints, altering reality into a more romantic and fantastic world. Gottlieb now scans her one-of-a-kind hand-painted prints and her lifetime collection of Kodachrome slides and then enhances, collages, and paints them with Photoshop to express her idyllic vision in a voice that is uniquely her own.

“I hope,” describes Gottlieb, “to create images that surprise and intrigue, drawing the viewer into my idyllic vision, ultimately uplifting them with vibrant color and evocative beauty.”

Over her career, Gottlieb has journeyed to destinations throughout the world taking photographs of the natural and human-made world creating the basis for her artworks.  Her multiple series range from classic automobiles to architecture to gardens, cityscapes, monuments, and villas.

In conjunction with an exhibition of Gottlieb’s “the Garden Works” at The Butler Institute of America Art, Director Dr. Louis A. Zona stated: “Channeled through a remarkable imagination and disciplined eye, she delivers to us a visual universe of unparalleled wonders. These are classically beautiful works in theme and composition, but move well beyond tradition in interpretation and critical placement of exuberant color.”

Over the last five years, Gottlieb is proud to have installed over 150 large artworks on exhibit for ten years in five buildings at UCLA and two buildings at UCSB. Gottlieb has been exhibited worldwide in countless group exhibits and many one-person shows including the:   Butler Institute of American Art, Laguna Art Museum, Petersen Automotive Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History,  Monterey Museum of Art, Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, CA, Laband Art Gallery at Loyola Marymount University, Louis Stern Gallery in West Hollywood, Nancy Hoffman Gallery in New York, L’Image Gallery in Rome.

“A moment is forever.”

"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.”

"I am interested in the re-presentation of the real through abstraction which allows different interpretations by the viewer. The root of the image may come from observation but equally, it can be a discourse between form, line, texture and colour."

Harbour Light - Giclée print 38 x 27,8 cm

English Artist, Adrian Bradbury holds a  BA Hons in Fine Art from West Surrey College of Art and Design and a Surrey Diploma in Photography from West Surrey College of Art and Design.

"Originally trained in Fine Art before becoming a professional photographer and digital illustrator/designer working for many international clients, and based in London, I have now moved onto developing my own personal artwork in greater depth, exploring abstraction through colour, line and form."

"Drawing is my favorite way to feel free. Each sheet of paper is a safe place that doesn’t require any explanation or adaptation from me. It takes me as I am and allows me to be in touch with my feelings."

Gigantic - Indian ink 24 x 19 cm

"I have drawn literally since I knew how to hold a pencil in my hand. As an only child, drawing has always been my way of escaping and expressing myself. From the age of 8 to 20, I took oil painting and pencil classes to improve my skills. Technique is really important to me; I have always admired M. C. Escher for his.

Several years later, during my global design studies, I found both my style and my preferred mediums, by discovering graphic design. I fell in love with this discipline and it has greatly influenced the way I apprehend my drawing sheet and my lines. Today, in my art, I love combining ink on paper with digital coloring. Pop art inspires me a lot in my use of colors. I adore impressionism as well; this movement has definitely influenced the way I draw, with urgency. That’s what I love most about art, the raw capture of an emotion."

Vanja Basic is a Serbian Artist living in France. She holds an MA in Design, Management, and Eco-Design and a BA Graphic and Interior Design.

"My greatest desire is to offer my whole heart, soul, mind and strength to honor and worship God and to be mightily used to declare his glory through my paintings."

When My Back's Against the Wall - Digital mixed media printed on canvas 124 x 82.5 in.

ROMANS 1:20 "For his invisible [qualities] are clearly seen from the world's creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even His eternal power and Godship, so............"

"Looking through all things in the world, the intention of the only Creator, is that love be felt everywhere. The existence and character of our one God is to be known through his creatures. Although humans are now able to change the colors and the forms of nature quite freely by the use of a tool called the computer, I would like to utilize this technology in CONFORMITY to the will and the intentions of the Creator, to show Nature in its truest and most beautiful forms. As long as I continue to do my work within this limit and at the same time, show my appreciation, thanks, respects and admirations to the Creator, God, who made this excellent Star, called Earth, I believe The Creator will allot me the energy to continue my work forever."

“The emotions we feel are often lived in a personal way; they are intimate… And yet emotions belong to everyone; we share them, they belong to our deepest human nature. That is the subject I want to explore, with introspection, trying to bring my own and other people’s emotions."
