Sale Price $4800

Artist Statement

Zimbabwe depicts a group of young  boys at play, a moment in time of pure joy. Painted in oil on canvas, being backlit, the challenge was to define, except for minimal rim light,  facial expression, anatomy, form, gesture and drapery, all in dark shadow.

About the Painting

 

If you look at the black bar, it will lead you into an unknown world.

 

Biography

 

Born and grew up in China.
1995, came into America, work as a computer Engineer/Programmer.
2006, went to West Los Angeles College to learn Oil Painting.
2011, published a collection of his paintings – “Spirit”.
2014, Show his artworks in Las Vegas.
2018, ArtSlant showcase winner.
2018, Show on New York ArtExpo.
2018, Light Space Time, Special Recognition winner.

 

Q. Wang developed his painting style — “Freeism” by using free colors, free
shapes, free strokes, and free perspective to do his art works. The result is a
free atmosphere, and a space of imagination.

 

Q. Wang paints the spirits by heart. Before Van Gogh, peoples all paint what
they saw, and let the viewers to see what they painted. Since Van Gogh,
peoples began to paint what they thought, and let the viewers to think what
they painted. But Q. Wang paints the spirits, something you can not see and
you can not think, you can only feel it by heart. His paintings have no
details, but have characters. Each of his painting is different with others.

 

As the famous French film producer Jean-Luc Godard said, It’s not where
you take things from – it’s where you take them to.

 

Wang has taken me further into the appreciation of my surroundings, people, and love. That
is what art is all about. —  Gary Sorkin

Dmitry Fesechko

"Music of War"

Oil on canvas , 80 x 45cm

Sale Price $2200

Artist Statement: “Music of War”

I don’t paint many still life paintings, but when I do I try to inspirit them with some symbolism like the masters of the past did before. “Music of War” is the painting about life and death. On the left side of the composition you can notice a two-string musical instrument called “Topshur”. It takes its origin from the Western Mongolian tribes. Mongolian people usually sang songs about wars and heroes of the past accompanied by this instrument. They also played topshur before a battle to inspire people. Somehow this instrument symbolizes a war. But the same time music can symbolize life, movement, inspiration. On the right side of the composition you can see the human skull in old style Mongolian hat. Apparently, it symbolizes death, “Memento mori”.

I decided to paint two light sources. Left one is red. A color of life, fierce and energy. Topshur is being lit by this light. Right light source is green. In color psychology green color stimulates harmony in the brain. It is a calm color. All of us will find desired peace after death.

Also, painting this still life I was inspired by 19th century Russian artist Vasily Vereshchagin. One of his most famous paintings is “The Apotheosis of War”. He has painted a big pile of sculls in a middle of Central Asian steppe. Inspiration came to me from the inscription on the frame of this large painting: “Dedicated to all conquerors of the past, present and future”.

Also, when I paint still life paintings, I usually use an old multilayer technique (like Flemish, a little bit modified). It takes a lot of time to finish a piece with such technique. Paintings made this way have volumetric light, the illusion of volume and presence is incredible. The light pierces the canvas and reflects from the wall where the painting is hanging and lightens the canvas from inside. As the shadow areas have the most transparent layer it glows the most. You can notice this effect on many masterpieces of 17th-18th century.

Biography

Dmitry Fesechko (b. 1988) is an artist from Moscow, Russia. He started his artist career as an abstract painter, then for some years was absorbed in surrealism and symbolism, taking part in exhibitions in Russia and the EU. He also worked as a digital illustrator for some time but abandoned it focusing entirely on traditional oil painting. He has studied classical multilayer technique that takes its origin from old masters of the past. Nowadays Dmitry works in genres closer to life like still life, landscapes and paints a series of paintings inspired by several trips to India.

Kathryn Yu

"We've Drifted"

Oil paint on canvas , 20" x 24"

Sale Price $2000

Artist Statement

As a shy and private person, the pieces I create often share in my quietness. Even a beach teaming with people, when filtered through my eyes and hands, can nevertheless come out with a quiet mood to it. The title “We’ve Drifted” will mean different things to different viewers. Perhaps the people populating the image have all, as a group, drifted to this dreamlike location, removed from their normal everyday lives. Or, drifted may refer to how close in proximity the figures all are and yet there is a feeling of distance in that there is very little interaction between them. For others, the focus may be on the male figure and the female figure who are in the foreground. They seem as if they could have arrived together, but in keeping their heads down, each preoccupied with their own searches, their paths split and they drifted unknowingly farther and farther apart.

Biography

Kathryn Yu was born in Dongying, China, but has resided in the United States from the age of 5. She received a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the University of Texas at Austin and went on to teach after-school art classes to over 400 youth in the Austin area throughout the years. While her very favorite medium to work with is oil paint, she loves to dabble in a variety of art styles and materials, even taking on a massive ongoing project of producing personalized Copic marker avatars for all of the monks who train in kung fu at the Shaolin Temple in China, the site where kung fu originated.

Gaylord Mink

"People Watching"

Photography , 3000 x 2700

Sale Price $POR

Artist Statement

 

My wife is a people watcher. We live in a small town in eastern Washington where most of the people are “normal”. On a recent visit to San Francisco we stopped at a wharf-side shop for a beer and sandwich. As I sipped my beer, I kept my camera poised for that one interesting shot that was sure to come. I noticed my wife was intently watching the cast of “not-so-normal” characters that surrounded us. She was so totally mesmerized by their actions that she had no idea that I had just taken her picture. I was so intent on taking her picture that I ignored all the “not-so-normals” in the background. It looks as if I made the right choice.

 

Artist Biography

 

Gaylord Mink began his “artistic” life as a photographer when he retired after 40 years as a research scientist. He began this afterlife as a free-lance wildlife videographer where he concentrated on the movement and behavior of the wild subjects. Later he expanded to digital still photography where he now attempts to tell visual stories about the subject’s behavior. Recently he is focusing on incorporating light and texture as principle subjects in his work, most of which still centers around wildlife and natural things. Occasionally, however, he attempts surreptitious portraits such as this one.

Mary Dove

"Sedona Arizona Yellow Argentine Giant Cactus Flower"

Oil painting on stretched canvas , 8" x 10"

Sale Price $NFS

Artist Statement

The Argentine Giant Cactus Flower is a favorite of landscapers in the high Arizona desert. This fragrant blooms normally open at night and persist until early to mid-morning. While it is said to be a nocturnal blooming cactus on cool, cloudy days in Arizona; the flowers continue blooming during the day. The cactus of choice in the neighborhood.

This Yellow Giant was in my neighbor’s yard backlit by the early morning sun when I took the photograph. Oil paintings were added to expand the level of painting communication. Most often the subject matter directs how it would like to be interpreted in watercolor, oil pastels or as an oil painting. The subject intensity of the flower color and shadows were best expressed in an oil painting.

Growing up in Houston, Texas, Mary Dove’s father made certain she was exposed early and often to a wide variety of life experiences. These included all manner of wildlife, birds, nature, sports and even food. Such invaluable encounters have enabled her to breathe life and soul into everything she chooses to paint or draw. Diversification thus became, and remains today, the hallmark of her work. Paintings range from landscapes and architectural structures, big game animals, pet portraits and still life. This allows the subject matter to emotionally fine her as she responds to a particular location or personal experience.

Biography

A resident of Sedona AZ, Mary Dove earned both a Bachelor and a Master of Art Education Degree from Texas Tech University, Lubbock TX. Her college education began as an architect major, moved through commercial art and technical illustration to discover her artistic voice as an illustrator. She now captures structures vanishing from our ever-changing landscapes. In the animal world, her keen insight and sensitivity express the physical characteristics and personality of our animal companions and wildlife. Her chosen subjects are depicted in a “realistic expressionism” style reflecting the study of light and values to depict the story mood of the painting.

Katty Smith

"Beyond the Yellow Brick Road"

Clay, solid built, finished with terra sigillata and Mason stains , 20" x 15"

Sale Price $1800

Artist Statement

My primary focus when sculpting is the female human spirt that comes from being raised in a family of strong women. Often, I like to convey a message or tell a story through my sculpture. “Beyond the Yellow Brick Road” as we know it from the book and movie, The Wizard of Oz, is referred to as a spiritual allegory. By searching for answers in life, as you travel the yellow brick road and then reach the end of the road, you come to realize the answers are inside you and you have the power to control your own destiny through your God given talents.

“Beyond the Yellow Brick Road” was coil built with Max White paper clay; the story was drawn and incised on the surface, and when the clay was bone dry, terra sigillata was applied with Mason stains. After bisque firing, copper oxide wash was applied and wiped off, then the sculpture was fired a second time. The color was enhanced by the application of a matte sealer.

Biography

When Katty Smith grew up in the small rural southern town of Halifax, Virginia, art was not a topic of discussion among the less than one thousand residents.  The opportunities to express any artistic ability were somewhat limited to coloring books and drawing scenes on the chalkboard. None the less, having a very large closely knit extended family, highlighted by frequent memorable gatherings, and knowing most people in the town made the formative years a wonderful experience.

A year and a half at The Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro was put on hold when Katty married her high school sweetheart.   Ten years later with two children on board, she began her journey to a B.S. degree from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and eventually earned an MBA from the University of Toledo at age fifty-nine.  Anytime there was an opportunity to go to school, Katty was right there ready to enroll.

In 2008, at age sixty-five, Katty enrolled at Armstrong Atlantic State University, Savannah, GA, in a ceramic sculpting class.  The first day of class when she received her chunk of clay, her lifetime search ended and her passionate journey began. Never once in her sixty-five years of life had Katty ever dreamed of being an artist.

After moving to Florida in 2010, Katty enrolled at Crealde School of Art in Winter Park, FL, for three years of ceramic sculpting classes.   The purchase of a house with a large garage and a new kiln allowed Katty to become a studio artist in New Smyrna Beach, FL, in 2013.  Now in her spare time, she plays tennis and volunteers locally at The Hub Gallery on Canal, at the Artists’ Workshop, Inc., and teaches occasional sculpting workshops.   She belongs to art associations that offer exhibiting opportunities and has won numerous awards to include four best in show awards. Katty currently exhibits her work at The Hub on Canal in New Smyrna Beach.

Don Bergland

"Axiom"

Digital Pigment Print , 24" x 30"

Sale Price $675

Artist Statement About the Work

“Axiom” is an alchemical adventure into the mysteries of belief which create the stories upon which our own personal mythologies rest. Here, we encounter a major psychological archetype robed in hints of youth, the first attempts at word-based expression, and the beginnings of the endless search for meaning. Mental inquiry always lies at the heart of each image constructed by Don Bergland. He attempts to arrange the elements in his images in a way that connects pivotal objects with association, symbolism, and metaphor. For Don, the enclosed space of the visual image is a cerebral theater populated by realistic sets, objects, and figures which when combined with intention, offer challenging enigmas. It is left to viewers to examine the symbolic interactions and connections within the objects populating this theatrical set and build their own narrative interpretations of these connections based on their own personal histories.

Artist Resume

Don Bergland is an Associate Professor Emeritus of Art Education at the University of Victoria as well as an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA). He has been an active exhibiting artist for over 50 years, during which time, he has mastered a variety of professional media, from oil on canvas to his current studio use of digital tools and techniques. Throughout his career, he has enjoyed professional relationships with major galleries in Canada and the United States. He maintains an active international exhibiting career and has featured his artwork in over 200 major exhibitions throughout the world, winning over 70 creative & professional awards in the process. He has published a variety of books dealing with art and creative activity as well as many articles in scholarly and academic journals. His studio practice is focused on using 3D modeling environments to create surrealistic imagery for international exhibitions. He currently lives and works in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Gracia Nash

"Push"

Photo of Mixed Media Performance , 2760 × 1553

Sale Price $NFS

Biography/Artist Statement:

Push is a triptych of stills from a body interactive performance. It deals with the transient nature of identity, and explores the moments, both uncomfortable but necessary, where growth and change occur. During the performance, a body walks into the frame and encases itself with a cocoonesque pod, made of silicone and reflective glass beads, that sits wrinkled on the floor. The body moves and manipulates inside the pod until it has ripped itself free. The body exits the opposite way it approached, leaving the shed pod behind. 

Through glass, the body, mixed media, and alternative processes, I examine the transient natures of identity. I create flexible sheets of glass and glass textiles through a process of fusing and the addition of silicones, to explore glass as sheets, skins, and screens. I reconcile with material and memory to convey stories about identity, perception, and comfort.  The objects I create become body interactive to directly explore ipseity – a sense of self-ness, how others perceive me, and how society perceives others. 

Gracia Nash is a glass and multi-media artist from western New York. She received her BFA from Alfred University, and is currently a Glass Masters of Fine Arts candidate at Rochester Institute of Technology School of American Crafts. Her work explores the body, identity, and perception.

Howdothingscometogether – when they often start apart?

Over a lifetime, our brains monitor and absorb upwards of 997 Terabytes of information. How we process and piece together the cumulative stimuli informs our thinking, behaviors, perceptions, emotions and decisions. And as those pieces fall into place, our life’s bigger picture begins to reveal itself.

What do the rectangular shapes represent in this abstract mind?Compartmentalization? Our mind’s absolutes? The proverbial rhyme and reason? And what about the rest of the painting? Is it the curious mind, hungry for more knowledge? The creative, right cerebral hemisphere? Or is it the critical missing piece that completes the overall puzzle?

I leave that to your interpretation.

 

Biography

 

As a very little girl who loved to create, Leslie’s first ‘work of art’ was simple: her medium was colorful yarn on white plaster walls.

Her discovery that the yarn’s fibers stuck to the heavily texturized walls led to murals/graffiti all over the house. To this day, she still

seeks opportunities to be creative with her surroundings and her art. Leslie’s professional background is in advertising/PR and marketing. She currently lives

in Colorado and enjoys mountain biking, snowboarding and travel.

Marcia Berg Haskell

"In & Out "

Digital Photograph , 14" x 19"

Sale Price $450

 

Artist Statement

‘In or Out’ is one of a series of images where Marcia explores the images shown from reflected and transmitted lighting.  She became interested in what she saw when looking in store windows on busy streets.  Her interests were enhanced by store windows that had strong angles which enhanced or manipulated the things behind the window by the reflections from the streets.  The unpredictability of action on the street, light from the street lamps and sunlight contrasts with the fixed objects within the store along with customers provides opportunities for viewing interactions that are both spontaneous and predefined.  It is that interaction that holds Marcia’s interest.

 

Artist Biography

 

Marcia grew up in Brooklyn, NY.  As a child her poor eyesight, meant she couldn’t see the things her friends could.  Buying her first camera, at 10 years old, opened a new world to her.  for the first time, she could see the world clearly.  From that moment to the present, she has always had a camera close at hand.

In high school, she found she had a love for science.  After graduating from Brandeis University, she went to work as a chemist.  But, her interests in learning led her to spent her career moving from one field to the next.  Her focus on technical fields affected her creative work as well.  Her photography consisted of capturing the literal world around her, with an emphasis on landscapes, structures and architecture, and waterscapes. 

When Marcia retired, she searched for new activities to occupy her time.  Her approach was to take adult eduction courses in subjects she didn’t know anything about:  abstract photography, drawing, and painting all captured her enthusiasm. Since then, she has devoted her efforts to all 3.

Today, Marcia spends her time creating art to express her vision of the external and internal world she experiences.  She uses her photography to convey the beauty and patterns of her physical world, her ‘fractured fotographs’ convey the possibilities of manipulating the physical world to show new patterns and possibilities and her paintings create original work that conveys emotions, feelings and mood.  Marcia’s goal in all her work is to convey, to the viewer, her reactions to the world and everything it contains.

Marcia’s photographs and paintings have been juried into shows at the Cambridge Art Association, and several online juried galleries including Bauhaus Prairie, Heaven Art Gallery USA, LightSpaceTime.art, Contemporary Art Gallery Online, and Fusion Art Gallery – Palm Springs.  Her work, in the last 6 months,  has been judged from ‘Juror’s Choice’ to  ‘Honorable Mention’.

"Spring's Dance of Form"

Monochrome , 6" x 12"

Sale Price $395

Artist Statement

“The job of the artist is to deepen the mystery.” ~ Sir Francis Bacon

For me a straight photograph is rarely enough to capture the essence of what I am seeking to express. Don’t get me wrong. I have a deep appreciation for the pure photograph as art. I think that Dorothea Lange or Ansel Adams or Edward Weston are extraordinary artists and a “simple” color or black and white image can have the impact or beauty of any great work of art. However, for me I generally want to make the art of creating an image a process that goes beyond the simple art form to what I have termed a “dreamlike quintessentialism” designed to spark an emotional response from the viewer. Even now as the words escape my figurative lips they seem contrived, arrogant – an affectation. Yet, for the life of me I can’t find a more apt way to explain either the process or the outcome when I undertake to create an image. Perhaps it is a measure of my own failing as an artist. The fact that I can only rarely capture an image that I find satisfying without my intervention.

 Often when looking to create an impact I find myself torn between trying to disguise my treachery and flaunting it. Sometimes I choose to disguise it and sometimes I chose to flaunt it – ignoring perfect straight lines and making them rough and imperfect. It usually works for me, it may not work for you or you may find it as compelling as do I.

 That’s what makes the world an interesting place and that’s what achieves dreamlike quintessentialism in my own universe.

 “Spring’s Dance of Form” is an image that rises to this level. Perhaps that is why it was chosen by the Bauhaus Prairie Gallery for the honor of 1st place in their 2018 Still Life Competition. On the day I photographed the Skunk Cabbage that became Spring’s Dance it was the first real warm day in the shadow of Rattlesnake Ridge in New Hampshire where I live. Anyone who goes out on that first warm day will find almost nothing growing . . . nothing, that is, except Skunk Cabbage which has thrust it’s green leaves into the cool spring air. While its color does indeed provide a stark contrast to the browns, beiges and muted greens of the landscape the color is less important than the form. Not to say that I didn’t try by creating an image titled “Spring’s First Blossom” which creates an image where color is equally important to form. Yet the simplicity of Spring’s Dance makes it both more simple, pure and stunning at the same time makes it more compelling still.

Artist Statement

GLOBAL WARMING . . .. it is now a reality

Many of us around the world are very much concerned about this rather disturbing and serious trend. At first, I personally thought it might have been somewhat exaggerated but after much review of scientific research, I feel strongly about the protection of our fragile planet Earth. Most of the leading scientific organizations in the world acknowledge the existence of GLOBAL WARMING and that it is not a natural occurrence.

Whether you call it climate change or GLOBAL WARMING . . IT IS HAPPENING. Scientists say that we are already experiencing impact, and they are likely to increase. The impacts include the effects of extreme weather events such as floods, droughts, heat waves, ice storms, hurricanes, but also increased threats from infectious diseases and armed conflict. Scientists have documented the rise in average temperatures worldwide since the late 1800’s.

Recognizing that there is little doubt that human activity. . .largely through the release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the use of fossil fuels is responsible for the current pace of GLOBAL WARMING.

Motivated to express my genuine concerns, I decided to creatively render my interpretation and representation in my image of the gradual heating of the Earth’s surface oceans and atmosphere.

Artist Statement

 

“Photography has traditionally been used for its imitative but sometimes limited capabilities for capturing what already exists in the world. As an artist/photographer, I utilize the camera as a visual tool to create entirely new environments. Using my original photographic images as essential elements in a montage, I distort, manipulate, and reinterpret shapes, colors, and light in order to creatively explore new visual possibilities. Through this ongoing process, I visually communicate the imagery and concepts that otherwise would remain only in my mind.”

"Falling Leaves"

Silver, Gold, and Iron (Oxidized) on Paper/ Metalpoint Drawing , 12'' x 8''

Sale Price $900

Artist Statement

“Falling Leaves” actually started out as a series of compositional sketches for a larger painting. The model I happened to be working with at that time had long, red, wavy hair, and that led me to think about how I could possibly express the qualities of her hair in one my favorite mediums, metalpoint drawing, which is traditionally devoid of both color and texture.

Control over traditional metalpoint (gold, silver, platinum, ect) can be a somewhat capricious enterprise because the materials have something of a life of their own. It’s these “living qualities” of metalpoint that I prize however. That the metals oxidize and organically transform with time, that marks can’t be erased and serve as historical reminders of the mistakes that lead to a finished work are part of what make the medium so captivating to me. In trying to add ferrous metals to the equation, I found myself struggling to gain the necessary control required to create realistic works. After countless hours of experiments (including a destroyed prior version of the drawing), I ascertained how to best control the oxidizing/rusting process, how to influence the color/value of the rust, and how to not destroy the other metals used in the process.

My desire to express particular qualities of the model, which were limited by the media, compelled me to invent and experiment. “Falling Leaves” represents a theme I constantly finding myself wrestling with as an artist, marrying the traditional and classical with contemporary progress. In “Falling Leaves” this marriage led to a unique work which is pushing my endeavors in metalpoint in exciting new directions.

Pen and Ink , 10" x 14"

Artist Statement

My artwork is an exploration of the compositional and textural elements found in nature and rural settings.

Working exclusively in black and white, the strong contrast of ink on paper allows me to focus on the detail, tone and texture of my subject matter. To me, color is a distraction.

On a personal level there is a strong connection between my art and my faith. The close examination of nature, with pencil or pen, prompting a desire for deep introspective work.

 

Biography/Resume

 

Stacy Topjian Searle is a pen and ink landscape artist from Nashua, New Hampshire who works exclusively in black and white.

Searle began her art education at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston Massachusetts. She later earned a BA in Art from the University of Lowell, Lowell Massachusetts, where her focus was on Illustration.

Stacy uses on-site sketches and photographs as references for her work. She begins by laying out the general composition of a piece in pencil. Once a composition is in place, ink is applied to create a contour drawing of the scene. Detail is developed through her unique blend of cross hatching, contour lines, parallel lines, stippling and scrumbling techniques to create the mood of each piece.

Creation inspires most of Searle’s work and by focusing on the complexity and details of nature she hopes to increase awareness to the need for conservation and preservation.

Stacy is an award-winning juried artist and is a member of the Nashua Area Artists Association. She has participated in Nashua’s Art Walk and has exhibited in group exhibitions at ArtHub Gallery in Nashua, NH, Beaver Brook in Hollis, NH, the Whitty Gallery in Hollis, NH, the Brush Gallery in Lowell, MA, the ALL Gallery in Lowell, MA, Angles and Art Gallery in Haverhill, MA, The Fitchburg Art Museum in Fitchburg, MA, and Uforge Gallery in Boston, MA.

"Imagination"

Watercolor , 22" x 21"

Sale Price $1750

Artist Statement – “Imagination”

The “Dynamics of Dominance and Value” in the abstract art Imagination that I created are but two of the design elements and principles that have become the central theme in the work I produce, exhibit and teach. Dominance is exhibited in many ways: color, shape, texture, and line are all forms of dominance utilized in this work. The predominantly warm colors are balanced with a small grouping of subordinated cooler colors.

The dominance of multiple curvilinear shapes are offset nicely by smaller geometric shapes. These are the two key forms of dominance that I try to produce when working on a watercolor abstract. Other elements that tend to support these characteristics of my work are textures which are derived in multiple ways as well as the use of line to help pull the piece together and the multiple washes that allow the transparency of watercolor to come shining through providing changes in value throughout the composition.

Artist Biography 

Growing up in Houston, Texas, Mary Dove’s father made certain she was exposed early and often to a wide variety of life experiences. These included all manner of wildlife, birds, nature, sports and even food. Such invaluable encounters have enabled her to breathe life and soul into everything she chooses to paint or draw. Diversification thus became, and remains today, the hallmark of her work. Paintings range from landscapes and architectural structures, big game animals, pet portraits and still life. This allows the subject matter to emotionally fine her as she responds to a particular location or personal experience.

A resident of Sedona AZ, Mary Dove earned both a Bachelor and a Master of Art Education Degree from Texas Tech University, Lubbock TX. Her college education began as an architect major, moved through commercial art and technical illustration to discover her artistic voice as an illustrator. She now captures structures vanishing from our ever-changing landscapes. In the animal world, her keen insight and sensitivity express the physical characteristics and personality of our animal companions and wildlife. Her chosen subjects are depicted in a “realistic expressionism” style reflecting the study of light and values to depict the story mood of the painting.

Biography

Oklahoma native, Tamara Sigler, has always loved the outdoors, and exploring areas of natural beauty, especially in Oklahoma, the desert Southwest and the Rocky Mountain States. Recent years have added the peaceful, green spaces surrounding her current northeast Ohio home to that list. As a young girl, she would sometimes find small “treasures” while exploring, which would be a launching pad for imagined scenarios about little worlds.

Tamara studied art at Kansas City Art Institute and earned her BFA from Oklahoma City University. She entered a career as a graphic designer, just as the field was transitioning from traditional to digital. “It was an exciting decade of creative growth and opportunity. The career path branched and led into some crazy and energetic years of balancing artistic endeavors with the requirements of being a stay-at-home parent. It now leads back to the world of a full time artist.”

She is at work on a “Life of Birds” series depicting still life subjects that are enlivened with directional elements and paper birds each with its own character. Her art reflects the strong colors and patterns inspired by her home and her travels, and showcase a contemporary approach to composition along with a love and respect for traditional painting techniques.

Tamara is the recipient of the Native Star Award and has shown by invitation in the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum’s Small Works, Great Wonders Show.

"Symmetry"

Light Painting , 30" x 24"

Sale Price $POR

Artist Statement

“Life is Light and Motion”. Light painting is the combination of light and motion and my way to bring forth unique interpretations of this axiom.

“Symmetry” is representative of my approach to light painting. While the camera is fixed on a tripod, I am in front of it, “drawing” with a flashlight that is directed at the camera. The flashlight, used as the light source, is modified with various tips called “blades” of perspex in order to get specific light behaviors. To achieve the desired range of colors, I use color gels. Light art requires a slow shutter speed – my paintings come about in a single exposure of 10 – 20 seconds typically – and thus is best performed at night or in a dark room.

Biography/Resume

Madeleine Zweifel was  born in Zurich in 1958. She is a translator turned photographer and digital artist. Specializing in headshot photography, Madeleine is also a macro photographer and a light painter.

Why photography? Deliberate choice later in life. Introvert by nature, it has always been challenging for her to get out and meet with people. Photography helps with that and is a great way for me to interact with people and express herself through this creative outlet.

My goal was to channel Rembrandt’s quality of communicating a moment in one’s life.  I took inspiration from Rembrandt’s Self-Portrait at the Age of 34.  However, unlike Rembrandt who is signifying that he has “arrived,” the expression on my face is of concentration reflecting hard work. I’m still in the midst of “trying to get there.” Aging was an important aspect of Rembrandt’s work, and I acknowledge my own aging by showing my gray hairs that I can no longer keep up with dying. Being an artist has always been part of my identity as indicated by my painting apron.  Painting while looking into a mirror encouraged me to use an expressive approach bringing a quality of life to my portrait.

 

Biography/Resume

 

Jenny Ambroise earned her M.F.A. from Indiana State University and is an assistant professor of art at Marian University in Indianapolis, Indiana.  She draws upon personal experiences for her art in which subjects range from portraits to landscapes to still-lifes with an emphasis on nature. “There is an awareness of the moment that is demanded by nature which I use to negotiate questions about mortality,” Ambroise explains. While her paintings often center upon the broad topic of death, they are ultimately about understanding the human condition.

She is a resident of Tulsa, OK. She has studied painting in watercolor and pastels with nationally known artists and instructors such as Steven Quiller, Alan Flattman, Naomi Brotherton, Judy Betts, Christopher Schink and others and in recent years has added the art of printmaking, more specifically monotypes. Taking a workshop taught by renowned printmaker Julia Ayers made her want to learn more about this unique medium and its possibilities.

In June of 2011 she was invited by the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, OK to teach an introductory monotype workshop in conjunction with their “Rauschenberg at Gemini” exhibition. A solo exhibition at the Gallery of the Performing Arts Center in Tulsa in October 2011 included a large number of monotypes, portraying the change of seasons on the prairie.

The Community National Bank of Kansas commissioned her to paint historical works for seven of their branch offices. The large portraits of these communities are now on exhibit in their respective cities.

Her work was juried into the 2017 and 2018 National Watercolor USA shows.

Her paintings have been added to a number of corporate and private collections in the U.S., Germany and France, including several commissioned pieces.

She is represented by the Eva Reynolds Gallery of Fine Arts in Leawood, KS (Kansas City) and her work can also be found in the virtual galleries of the Oklahoma Artists Coalition and the Tulsa Artists Guild (TAG).

Don Bergland’s work is an alchemical adventure into the mysteries of his own philosophy, beliefs, and values. For him, studio practice is an intellectual activity, both on his part as the creator, and on the part of the viewer as translator of the experience. As a result, he tries to place mental inquiry at the heart of each image he creates. He consciously inserts symbolic interactions and connections within the objects populating his theatrical sets, and encourages viewers to build their own narrative interpretations of these connections. He attempts to arrange the elements in his images in a way that connects a pivotal object or theme with association, symbolism, and metaphor. For Don, the enclosed space of the visual image is a cerebral theater populated by realistic sets, objects, and figures which when combined with intention, offer challenging enigmas. He intends that the viewer will engage with the work, note surfaces, relationships, symbols, and metaphors, and will then construct personal meaning from the engagement. Like all studio-based languages of imaginative possibility, he has merely begun the journey of building and refining his own visual syntax and grammar of cerebral imagination. Each of his works is a record of that journey.”

"Global Warming-Glacier Calving"

Digital image metal print , 24" x 24"

Sale Price $250

Artist Statement

Global Warming-Glacier Calving is a photograph taken at the Sawyer Glacier near Tracy Arm during a cruise along Alaska’s Inside Passage. There was significant calving of the glacier while we were at the site that the conservationist on board noted was due to global warming. In post processing I ‘shaped’ the image to represent a globe and this piece represents to me what global warming is doing to the earth’s glaciers.

 

Biography

I have been a photographer for over 45 years. I am a self-educated and self-taught photographer whose early work was 35mm black and white, chrome, and color imagery. Black and white photos were processed and printed in my darkroom. I migrated to digital photography and now exclusively capture, process, mat, and frame my digital images. I love the creativity and expression in photography. It is my hope that my images will enable others to enjoy the beauty of the world through my photographs.

Artist Statement:

Like birds, one’s thoughts have the power to transcend physical shackles and travel unimaginable distances. When one’s mind is set free, creativity is released.

Biography:

Ming Y. Dong is currently a high school senior. She started to experiment with colors and different media since the age of three. Growing up, Dong liked to visit art museums and explore nature with a sketchbook in her hand, recording every ephemeral moment happening around her.

Dong always connect her art to nature. In her art pieces, she uses nature as the foundational logic. Then, she builds on it with more ideas. She aims to depict the interrelation between common objects and morality, something she considers a product of nature. In this light, her art reflects concepts such as science’s strictness, nature’s power, and culture’s variability.

Dong experiments drastically different styles to create each art piece from multiple dimensions. A piece of Dong’s art usually starts with an inspirational observation or a sudden question. As she tries to explain it, more doubts come to her mind. She either draws out many drafts before starting or starts boldly when her emotion reaches its climax. As she draws, she interrogates art, and art gives her solutions to her doubts.

Dong considers art as the origin of her creativity, so she aims to apply what she calls “art-think” into many areas to solve problems.

About This Painting

 

“After the Rain” is a 48″ x 48″ Acrylic on Canvas Painting influenced by a rainbow I saw after a heavy rain in Florida.

 

Biography

 

My introduction to the visual arts came about in the latter part of my first career as a surgeon when I was exposed to the world of glass blowing.  I personally found surgery to be an artistic expression but with obvious limitations.  Blowing glass offered an opportunity to do “surgery” on the glass to create interesting shapes with the added excitement achieved with a varied color palette.   After 13 years of working with glass and showing my work in five galleries, however, I found the need to explore painting.  I began with classes at the Boca Raton Museum School of Art in Boca Raton, Florida and the Old School Square in Delray Beach, Fl.   Whereas blowing glass required pre-work planning and had a time constraint, painting has allowed me more spontaneity and freedom with time to react to each painting as it develops.   I can work on a piece, put it aside and return to it at any time until I feel it is complete.    If something doesn’t feel quite right, I can change or modify it until I am satisfied.  Another freedom with painting is the ability to combine any colors of my choosing.  With glass, physical attributes of some colors prevent them from being combined together.  I find my direction with both mediums has been greatly influenced by the abstract colorist painters of the early and mid 20thcentury.   Color evokes a special reaction in me.  I don’t simply see it but rather I react to it emotionally, whether it is the changing colors in the ocean or sky, the flowers in my garden or the birds flying by. My goal is to evoke a similar reaction for myself as I watch the colors of the paints merge together and explode off the canvas, creating combinations that are often unexpected. Constant excitement influences my art as I prefer to display organic, non-objective shapes, which encourages the viewer to find their own message.

I am an independent freelance photographer, third generation born in Washington, D.C. Until recently I lived in a rural community, on the edge of the Chesapeake Bay, enjoying the naturaI beauty and historical interest of Annapolis and DC. Now I live on the outskirts of Houston, another vibrant and exciting city.

“Connected” is an image captured in the Observation Lounge at the Top of The Rock at Rockefeller Center, NY. I found a strong image in the structure of the room as well as the beautiful and interesting human connections.

My Architectural images are examples of the urban development. I want them to capture the intensity in the rhythms of the city. The structures are living, breathing environments and the interactive design is an integration of structure, man and nature. I am excited to capture the energy of life in these spaces that is implied as much as seen.

Tiffany Spring flowers:
“My latest projects are inspired by Art Nouveau and especially the wonderful stained glass windows by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Capturing the iridescent and translucent colors in combination with the strict network of black lines in felt keeps me fascinated. For this piece I used hand-dyed merino and Bergschaf wool, tussah silk, rose fibers and viscose.”

 

Biography/Resume

 

“Austrian fiber artist Susanne Weber creates felt paintings with emphasis on the magic of light and texture. Her approach is the fusion of Crafts (felting is an ancient textile process, believed to be the oldest form in existence), and Arts. In this context, fibers can be defined as a painting medium, complying with many of the rules relating to visual arts.

Susanne is a studied biologist and has her own medical translation business. She started felting in 2014 out of curiosity and was instantly hooked. From the beginning, working in 2D and exploring the endless options of colors and various fibers was her favorite subject, and she has been largely influenced by the works of Moy Mackay and Susan Mulcock. Nowadays, Susanne is steadily enhancing her knowledge and skills by attending various classes of worldwide renowned fiber artists.
Using violence-free materials like mulesing-free wool and peace silk is a vital issue, and processing wool from raw fleece to self-dyed painting material has become increasingly important to her.
Two exhibitions at the Vienna Felting Festival in 2016 and 2017 were a great success, and Susanne is actually preparing two further exhibitions for autumn 2018.

Her paintings are featured in Arts and Crafts magazines and juried exhibitions, and in December 2017 she was one of 12 Wraptious competition finalists out of 2000+ entries.
Together with her husband and three cats, Susanne lives in Vienna, the beautiful capital of Austria.”

"Friends"

Oil on Linen , 48" x 60"

Sale Price $10000

Artist Statement

My painting is inspired by European postimpressionist poetic motives together with classic understanding of Fine Art traditional interpretation. I do believe there is no end to figurative painting at all. Any skillful, significant master just adds new word, line, verse or, even novel, to the interminable Book of Painting. We all learn from Life and Nature, which, even developing, still proposes us the same human and artistic values as it was in Ancient Greece or Renaissance Italy.

You cannot call any good artist quite new. He is just a new step in sublimation and analysis of those who influence him most, thus we see Titian behind Modigliani, Caravaggio behind Picasso. Art is the union of different artistic aspiration.

"We Were Seeds"

Soft Pastels & Ink , 12"x 16"

Sale Price $400

Artist statement

“We Were Seeds…” is the first of a series of fantasy portraits dedicated to depicting both a likeness and the inspiration for the fantastical element. A Mexican Proverb reads, “When they buried us, they didn’t know we were seeds.” In today’s society, the assault on bodies of color is palpable and real. Our society has always known the meaning of this proverb, but its prescience is shameful. This portrait represents hope.

The wind blows through the little girls kinky hair and seeds blow from her like a dandelion. She is the representation of that proverb. She is the hope that keeps the seeds from springing up, even from being pushed into the soil. One cannot separate her from the words that inspired her.

Artist Bio

Marin Burnett, a native of New York and transplant to the Pacific Northwest, is a self-taught artist specializing in the human face and form.

Marin starting painting just after college as a form of escape and catharsis. What started as a casual hobby quickly became a passion and something that she dedicates her free time to on a daily basis. Marin works mainly in soft pastels and charcoal and works with bespoke handmade surfaces to ensure that the uniqueness of the individual and their story should be honored by the surface that holds their likeness.

Marin’s work has been featured at the Amber Tree Gallery in Washington, DC, the State House of Representatives in Maryland as well as the Hillman City Collaboratory in Seattle, WA. When she is not a consultant in her new Seattle home, or spending time with her husband and son, she is in her home studio working on prints or commissions to keep her sanity

"CONSTRUCT (radio)"

Sale Price $1800

 

Creative Statement

CONSTRUCT (radio) is one of several drawings I group as SIGNALS which reference abstract and symbolic images used in communication such as STEM or musical notations. I have also long enjoyed calligraphy. Letter forms do not have to be understood to have a point of view either compositionally or in terms of content.

I used black and white in this piece to add a mechanical feel which may look like electrical or wi-fi waves shooting across space. Loud and soft lines make tones.

As these waves are invisible in real life the presence here reminded me of a radio signal…thus the (radio) in the title.

Biography

The formative years for me artistically were those spent in undergraduate and graduate studies at San Jose State University and Cranbrook Academy of Art, respectively. San Jose State University had a very active art department and was close enough to the San Francisco Bay Area to allow plenty of museum, gallery, and studio visits. My struggle during this period was to find a medium I liked and determine what my artistic voice was to be. In San Jose, and again at Cranbrook in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, I explored the mysteries of metal casting and found a formal and visual language in a machine/man, machine/animal synthesis much expanded and grounded a few years later during a two-year grant period (on the Prix de Rome) at the American Academy in Rome where I could work, look and think, all the time.

My first teaching position at the University of Minnesota was followed by almost a decade at Humboldt State Univ. in Northern California (less the 2 years in Rome) central Texas. The move to Texas, to fill a position in sculpture at the University, saw the introduction of a distinctly figurative element in my sculpture and the beginning of drawing as an art form (as opposed to sketches for sculpture). The concepts of “situational” work and of “particulated” imagery (many independent forms working as a whole) continue today. Ideas swirl around how we communicate with each other and with the natural world.

"Daily Meds"

Mixed Media , 8" x 12"

Sale Price $350

Artist Statement

 

I am interested in creating mixed media pieces that investigate the human experience and condition, often using the figure itself.

My work often includes figurative imagery. I explore human emotions and issues at micro and macro scales. My work explores how individuals react to emotional events. I also think about larger groups and the dynamics of how crowds react to highly charged events. In The Queens Identity, I explored the identity of an individual who was hiding an interior self and finally taking a step out. Following a similar theme, Coming Out is a piece about the different experiences people have when coming out. The varied experience of people are represented by the hands and how they interact with the strings. I also use my art to consider moral, ethical, and religious issues, such as in my piece When is it a Baby?, which is about abortion.

I use a wide range of media. I will often begin with a medium and build an idea around it. Also, I use unexpected materials at times, such as baby doll parts like in When is it a Baby?, used CO2 canisters, an old plastic wonder horse, and empty bags of Starbucks coffee.

Tatiana Dzhus

"Pierre Richard"

Pencil on paper , 34" x 32"

Sale Price $POR

Artist Statement

 

My name is Tatiana Dzhus. My surname in Russian sounds like “Juice”, so I chose my own pseudonym “Tatyana Juice”. I live and work in Russia, in St. Petersburg. I graduated from the St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and architecture Repin (drawing classes).

My drawing,“Pierre Richard,”  is based on favorite actors and films through the eyes of the artist. I wanted the drawing to convey to the audience the wonderful play of the great actor Pierre Richard and to share the wonderful emotions that are present in all the films with Pierre Richard.

 

Biography

 

I am a member of the Creative Union of Artists of Russia and of the International Union of Artists. I work in various techniques and genres. The nature of nature in a realistic manner of performance and portrait genre are the closest to me.

I am a repeated finalist and winner of the international contest “Portretisto.The great masters of the portrait”. I am the winner of the international competition “THE BEST ARTISTS OF 2017 – AMERICAN ART AWARDS. ” As an artist I am inspired by nature, cinema, theater, literature and of course the person himself. It is important for me to convey to my viewers the vision of this world, to try to convey the nature of man, his deep essence, emotions. My works are in private collections at home and abroad.

Artist Statement

Ralph Garafola has made a living as a commercial illustrator and fine artist for more than 65 years and brings his style of contemporary realism to his oil and watercolor paintings of portraits, landscapes, seascapes, still life and animals/pets. He travels throughout the Southern United States, Italy, England and France in search of new subjects and locations for future paintings while studying the works of the Old Masters.
“All my paintings are portraits. Whether my subject is a person, landscape, seascape, still life or pet, my approach is to portray my subject in its natural environment. It puts the viewer inside the painting. My paintings realistically depict what nature has created.” – Ralph Garafola

 

Biography

Ralph Garafola critically acclaimed artist, educator and author was raised in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. He and his family moved to New Jersey in 1964 and since 2001 spend the winters in Florida. Garafola started his career as a draftsman in New York City for Armor Engineering.

Later Garafola worked for Design Service in Newark, NJ as an illustrator producing government-training manuals for the Armed Forces. Afterwards he was promoted to Art Director. He worked there until he was drafted in 1953. Subsequently he studied drawing at The Alliance Art School (Educational Alliance) in lower Manhattan at night.

Garafola, a Korean War veteran was in the army for two years as Army Combat Photographer MOS. He studied at Fort Monmouth New Jersey Army photo school; graduated and transferred to the Pictorial Center, Long Island City as a photographer making training films for the army. While stationed in Korea Garafola was a draftsman. He was discharged in 1955.

Back in New York, Garafola studied at the Art Students League of New York over seven years with Frank J. Reilly. He served as class monitor to Reilly, who was an instructor at the League and Commissioner of Art for New York City.

Garafola worked at Janal Studio in Newark as a commercial illustrator. At that juncture he then went out on his own and for more than 65 years he made a successful living as a self-employed commercial illustrator, photo retoucher and fine artist. Garafola retired as a commercial illustrator and continued painting. He brings his style of contemporary realism to his oil and watercolor paintings of portraits, landscapes, seascapes, still life and pets. Garafola travels throughout southeastern United States plein air painting and Italy, France in search of new subjects and locations for future paintings while studying the works of the Old Masters.

At 70 years of age started teaching at the duCret School of Art, Plainfield, NJ and in Florida at the Sarasota Art Center, Longboat Key – Ringling College of Art and Design, the Art Center Manatee and Art Expressions by the Bay in Sarasota. Garafola also has students he tutors privately.

 

Current Work/Projects

Garafola’s portraits and still life capture the personality and character of his subjects while his landscapes and seascapes capture the mood of the scenes. Garafola says, “All my paintings are portraits. Whether my subject is a person, landscape, seascape or still life, my approach is to portray my subject in its natural environment. It puts the viewer inside the painting. My paintings realistically depict what nature has created.”

Garafola’s first published book “Frank J. Reilly – The Elements of Painting” reveals Reilly’s theory of what one needs to know about painting, as taught to Garafola. Frank J. Reilly was an American painter, illustrator, muralist and teacher. Reilly served as the Commissioner of Art for New York City. Ralph Garafola studied at the Art Students League of New York over seven years, where he served as Reilly’s class monitor.

“To succeed in the realm of graphic arts, like dancing and playing music, one must acquire knowledge. By practicing and applying that knowledge, one becomes skillful. It was Reilly’s logical application that was the basis for developing my craft. After 65 successful years I have never found a reason to change methodology he taught me. I owe him my sincere gratitude. Now, through this book, I share it with you” says Garafola.

Now Garafola is working on a second book, “Frank J. Reilly – Outdoor Painting” publication is scheduled for the end of 2017.

“The Price of Liberty & Freedom” A Commemorative Painting for Honoring Your Personal Hero was painted by Garafola as a dedication to the ultimate sacrifice made by our heroes so we can continue living with the freedoms we have in our nation. Ralph Garafola a veteran of the Korean War, long believed our heroes can be honored with more than a photo on a mantle or bureau. He created this unique painting in which a photograph of your personal hero is inserted into the composition – creating a beautiful, commemorative work of art that truly honors them and their sacrifice.

Garafola designed and directed the building of the 911 Memorial that stands in front of the Warren Township Municipal building in New Jersey.

Fourth Place

Anthony J Parillo

"Jones Beach"

Graphite, graphite powder , 40" x 70"

Sale Price $2500

Artist’s Statement

I’ve loved drawing from the figure all my life or at least since art school in the 1970s. Last summer I decided to experiment with some larger pieces, working from a 40-inch-wide roll of Strathmore Drawing paper. I wanted to loosen up and try to achieve a feeling of spontaneity. A day at Jones Beach in New York provided the perfect subject. During the hot summer months a narrow strip of the Earth a few hundred yards wide and several miles long is jammed with tens of thousands of human beings. Walking the length of the beach there are scores of languages and even more skin colors. Everyone is as close to being naked as legally possible and there are no inhibitions. It’s a scene of teeming, scrambling children, adults trying haplessly to keep track of them, then giving up and behaving like them. There are intimate couples threading quietly through whole extended families and solitary individuals just contemplating the pounding surf. And I guess that could be me right there in the middle, taking everything in. All under the hazy disk of the sweltering sun. Getting a sense of all that movement and sound made looseness and spontaneity virtually unavoidable. This was easily the most fun drawing I’ve ever done.
