Dave Weindorf Ternisky

“I read a lot about historical figures, primitive cultures, and ancient symbols. That definitely influences my art. I feel like I'm bringing the past to today in my expressionistic paintings with bold compositions of line work, watercolor, and abstract glyphs.”

Yellow Brick Road, 2017 - Acrylic enamel, stain and watercolor on canvas 40 x 30 in.

American artist, Dave Weindorf was born in 1962 in Indiana and is a self-taught, abstract expressionist painter. Weindorf's artwork reflects his lifelong interest in history, describing it as a desire to know the past that shapes the future. He says he's always been fascinated by Egyptian hieroglyphics and cave drawings. Dave spends most of his time studying art, architecture and his own historical ancestry. Weindorf's work has been exhibited in Verum Ultimum Gallery, Michigan’s Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts and Agora Gallery of New York. Dave has won multiple ArtSlant Showcase awards and selected as one of their Under the Radar artists. He's also had the opportunity to exhibit at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. Pace Galleries also exhibited his art plates in late 2001, with sales donated to 1st responders of  9/11. His work has been featured in Counterproductiv Magazine, Contemporary Art Curator, Aesthetica Magazine, and Studio Visit, a juried art book.

Dennis Casey Photography

"I have been an outdoor adventurer for almost half a century, and I have always had a passion for being alone in nature. My goal as a photographer is to produce images that allow other people to actually feel these experiences and to give them the feeling of what it is like to be alone in nature."

Oasis Water - Digital photograph Canon 6D 24 x 36 in.

Dennis Casey captures the magic of nature’s solitude. Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, his photography focuses on the splendor of mountains, deserts and oceans of the American West and Southwest. His distinctive style conveys the feeling of what it is like to be alone in nature.

A native of San Diego, CA, Dennis retired as an educator in 2013 and moved to Texas to become a landscape photographer. He continues to teach business at Weatherford College, and when he isn’t teaching, he spends his time searching for remote places of beauty from Canada down to South America.

Dennis has spent his entire life traveling the world as a surfer, climber and backpacker immersing himself in the beauty of both land and sea. These experiences come to life in his images. As for the theme of his photography, the artist states, “My goal is to produce images that allow other people to actually feel my outdoor experiences, and to give them the feeling of being alone in nature.”

Dennis’ artwork has been shown in exhibitions and art shows around the country, such as Art Expo New York, Art Santa Fe, Art San Diego, Amsterdam Gallery and Las Lagunas Gallery.

Captured in natural lighting, Dennis’ photographs provide a distinctive and fresh perspective on well-known American landscapes. His images demonstrate an alert eye capable of framing unique compositions which successfully communicate to the viewer that revered feeling of being alone in and with nature.

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!"

Moving Elephant by Mark

Moving Elephant by Mark is a Zurich-based photographer and a represented artist of Agora Art Gallery, New York City. For Mark, the art of photography is synonymous with life, embodying a never-ending journey which is manifested in his creativity and artistic vision.

Tout De Suite, Madame ! (2/4)

Moving Elephant by Mark is a Zurich based photographer and represented artist of Agora Art Gallery, New York City.

For him, the art of photography is synonymous with life, embodying a never-ending journey which is manifested in his creativity and artistic vision. Capturing his scenes with only naturally available light as well as directly shot monochrome, his images hold power in their underlying preservation of photography in its most natural and raw form.

Mark’s practice is comprised of two parallel lines of work. The first of these lines explores symmetry and perspective in mostly urban architecture. These works capture the beauty of the order present in often overlooked architecture, which is then further emphasized by the monochromatism of the images, which renders all the lines of the symmetry all that much more visible. The second line in Mark’s work deals with the art of storytelling through images as it relates to the female body. In these works, Mark deftly wields extremely dramatic lights and shadows to create gorgeously emotive scenes that can easily stir up memories or connections within a viewer. Further, there is compositional overlap between these lines, both where elements of symmetry and repetition come into the figurative works, as well as where the symmetrical architecture begins to evoke figurative forms in its contours.

His work was recently presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) exhibition in Beijing, China.

Lisa Powers Photographic Artist

"I don’t capture photos, I create them from nothing in my studio… not as one would perceive them in reality but as imagined images. To do this, I build from an idea. Choosing the right model to direct is crucial. I am completely self-taught and perhaps because of that, I am fearless."

The Bauhaus Beehive - Photographic Art Giclée print 16 x 24 in.

Photographic Artist, Lisa Powers was born in the South of France and moved to New York with her family when she was 10 years old. She currently lives and works in New Zealand. Lisa quit her day-job as proof reader for a small advertising agency to become a janitor in a large commercial photo studio. Ambitious to become a professional freelance commercial photographer, she learned by watching the studio photographers work in the daytime and then used the space to shoot with models at night.

“I learned more by experimentation than technical correctness since I had no technical knowledge. This was in the film era. I was one of the few women working successfully in commercial photography, an industry which was (still is) largely male-dominated.”

In 2009 she took a big risk to relocate (with her four kitties) from New York to New Zealand. 

“It took a while for the dust and kitty litter to settle but when it did I changed from commercial photographer to Photographic Artist.”

With several successful gallery exhibits to her resume, Lisa’s  "WanRong: The Last Empress of China" is currently on exhibition at The Buddhist Centre, Christchurch, New Zealand, till 17th October.

"He who works with his hands is a laborer.

He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.

He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist." 

- St. Francis of Assisi

Polymer Sculpture on steel base 4 x 8 x 11 in.

Jolic is an abstract artist and sculptor born in Philadelphia, USA and living in the Lower Laurentians in Quebec, Canada. She studied Architecture, Graphic Design, and Screen Printing on Fabric before becoming a fine artist. Self-taught in her practice, she has been creating works of art in various forms for several decades.

Jolic’s creative process follows a consistent pattern: she begins with three black canvases to ensure that she is inspired by the forms developing before her eyes, using brushstrokes and the palm of her hand. Jolic strives for an overall balance where her colors compromise on one side and are balanced out by forms on the other. Her artistic approach consists of balancing, contrasting, finding focal points and leaving quiet areas where the eyes can rest. She moves from one canvas to the next with passion and excitement to bring them to a phase she calls “detachment.” When she reaches that point, it is time for her to let go. Only then can she reach for a new canvas and feel the euphoria of creation once again.

Elizabeth Frank

"My carving style is inspired by iconic images found in folk, tribal and primitive art. The themes I choose are personal yet universal. My love for the natural world and my concern for the environment translate into works about the complex relationship between humans and nature in this modern age."

Following the Dog Star - Migration Series

Arizona-based, American artist Elizabeth Frank feels a communion with trees. It began with a childhood spent exploring the outdoors. At age nine her family moved for several years to Olympia, Washington. There the rainforests near her home became her sanctuary. Now living in the Sonoran Desert she still visits the forests of Nothern Arizona or New Mexico at least once a year to gather aspen for her carvings. She thinks of each visit as a pilgrimage.

After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Arizona State University Frank spent several years working in the film industry. On her jobs buying for and decorating sets she enjoyed transforming spaces to create believable locations. The quest to find the perfect objects to help propel a narrative ignited her love of found things. Now she incorporates this same quest into her artwork.

A native of the desert southwest Frank spent most of her childhood just sixty miles from the US/Mexico border. Her father, a social worker, worked part-time in a border community. Her family often visited Mexico. As a young adult, she explored the country more thoroughly. Through those travels, she found great artistic inspiration. One such trip led to studies in language and sculpture in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Journeys near and far continue to inspire her.

Her artwork can be seen in galleries and fairs throughout the United States. It’s been featured in television, film, and books. Elizabeth Frank is honored to have her pieces included in collections around the US and abroad.
