Silvija Treice

“A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.”
- Paul Cezanne

For Elise - Digital media 2400 x 1500 px

Latvian Artist, Silvija Treice was born in a small town called Jurmala, and now lives in the capital city of Riga. She is a self-taught photographer and dares to say, digital artist. In 2016 she discovered the magic of digital art when she luckily found the “Photoshop Artistry” course run by Sebastian Michaels. It took some time to get to the point when photoshop manipulations and creating art became part of her life.

In 2018 Silvija was enrolled in the “AWAKE” course with Sebastian Michaels. In December 2018 she was invited to the international group of digital artists called “KAIZEN”. She has found like-minded friends who support and encourage her. Her work doesn't represent a particular style; she enjoys experimenting with textures, lights, brushes.

"It is a joy to transform photos or visions into art. Sometimes little things like a shell, a simple flower, stones at the seaside, nice music or memories can be transformed into art."

Since December 2018 Silvija's works have been published in the international magazine “Living the Photo Artistic Life” and received Honorable Mention and Special Merit awards in exhibitions at “Light Space & Time” as well as Finalist Certificates for participation Circle Foundation for the Arts' contests. Some of her works have been exhibited at the Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece and the More Art Please gallery in Brasov, Romania.

"As a chemist, I still do not know if the light is made of waves or particles, but I appreciate the fact of modulating it by orienting my monoblocks according to my desires. Light can express disarray by its absence or dissolve the subject that will be defined only by its accessories."

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."

Jason Levi is an Italian-born photographer educated in the United States. Following his passion for photography, he returned to Europe where he owned and operated photographic studios in Barcelona, Spain and Rome, Italy.

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.”
