Gary Aagaard (United States)

Artist Statement:

Generally, I use red sparingly in its raw form. It's a strong color, however I use it frequently when mixing colors. In addition, utilizing a strong red hue is an excellent tool in moving the viewer's eye around the entire canvas.

Antanas Adomaitis (Lithuania USA)

Artist Statement:

I try to reflect and study the interplay between nature and psyche, to bring forth tradition, but carry it further into realm of unexpected. Sometimes it is color which leads one in and out of the maze of form. In these particular works, the color is actually creating a sense of irony

Jane Gottlieb (USA)

Artist Statement:

JANE GOTTLIEB www.janegottlieb.com As much painter as 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" says 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 man-made world creating the basis for her art works. 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."

William Haney (United States)

Artist Statement:

William Haney is a college professor, draftsman, digital artist, and scientific illustrator. William Haney’s
career spans 35 years. He completed his MFA at The University of Georgia where he began to teach
analytical drawing. He has been a full time professor at Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, The
College of New Jersey, Ewing NJ, the University of Pennsylvania,(PENN DESIGN) and is currently a
full professor at Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ. In his capacity as an instructor he has taught
drawing, human anatomy, drawing as design, traditional painting and digital painting.
His works have been exhibited in numerous venues such as the Smithsonian Traveling Drawing
Exhibition, The Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA, Alex Rosenberg Gallery, NYC, The New
Orleans Museum of Art, The Butler Museum of Art,Youngstown, OH. and the Memphis Brooks
Museum in Memphis, TN. He has also exhibited in over 100 national juried exhibitions.
At the core of his work and research are the study of human and animal anatomy as well as the geometry
of kinematics, machines and architectures.

“My work begins with the analytical study of these subjects with the purpose of dissecting the underlying
substrates that give the artifact its structure. During this process, I fall upon anatomical relationships,
intriguing surface pattern formation, and matrices. The overall objective is to find visual metaphors in
these linear archetypes that suggest a particular association or point of similarity. In the end, my final
creative challenge is to apply these individual structures in the creation of a meaningful choreography
within a new, dynamic environment. If I am successful in my assembly, the viewer becomes curious
about the metamorphosis before them and becomes a welcomed, engaged participant.”

Rosanne Heideman (United States)

Artist Statement:

As a child I was forever drawing, using the models in the Sears Catalog as my muses. After high school life got in the way of my art and my drawing ceased. Two years ago, as a 69 year old, I renewed my love of art and began painting as an outlet for the stress in my world. Painting was a new medium for me. Through painting I found a new world free from stress and challenges of life. A world where I'm free to express my world as I see it. A wonderful world where I can get lost in the beauty and love of my subject. Art is my home!

Lukas Kandl (France)

Artist Statement:

As a native of Czech Republic, I was born in Prague, the city occupied by the memories of Rudolf II, Arcimboldo, Kafka, and many others who left there their indelible marks. My painting hovers somewhere between surrealism and fantastic, mixing a bit of strange with a pinch of magic. Inspiration comes to me fairly easily. I feel as if ideas were stored in a large spiritual library, with an endless number of books and subjects. I just need to take a stroll in my library, stretch out my hand, and let the composition of my painting appear, both magically and very naturally. What is the most important to me is to offer paintings in front of which the spectator will take time to sit down, to enter in harmony with the painting, and then have his own walk, as an awaken dream, giving him, even for a short time, a rare and unusual feeling.

Thyra Moore (United States)

Artist Statement:

My art portrays an evolution from adversity to optimism while exploring my fascination with dimensions. With an underlying comparison to life, I revive assorted items unified by circumstances of hardship -- being worn out, almost destroyed or no longer wanted. During development, these once abandoned items are transformed to emerge as an integral part of each painting. Although abstract, there is a conscious composition behind a seemingly random process of expressive mark making, instinctive interaction, and at times further destruction. Ultimately each painting reveals a sense of music, movement, space, and time, while encouraging dreams with infinite possibilities.

Karen Mosbacher (USA)

Artist Statement:

Georgia O'Keeffe always said, "Paint what you see." For my work, her words are extremely important in how I want to share my unique mind with others. My synesthetic way of hearing, seeing, working, and expression is shared through my paintings. Color and movement are an essential part of my art. The "ninth street women" of the abstract expressionist period, particularly Helen Frankenthaler and Joan Mitchell, speak permission to me to explore and paint what I see when I hear sound, predominately music. Sound continues to resonate in an infinite wave of movement, building layers of colors and textures that stay with us for longer than we listen. The paint on my canvases envisage the vibrations of sound waves with thick and graceful textured layers of strokes. Since classical and contemporary classical music are a part of my DNA, it is vital for me to visually share the depth of music through expressionist painting. Painting continues to be a unique source of imagination; mine exemplifies my interest in sensory explorations of composition, movement, shape, color, and texture. My painting interpretations of movement and colors in abstracted sound-to-sight sensory depictions of music enable a much deeper understanding of collaborative process. I am intrigued by the unplanned structural formation of a sound. It is my passionate desire to paint what I see, and to inspire others to live more profoundly through the arts.

Shalini Nopany (India)

Artist Statement:

I have always loved photography, but never believed it would become my career. Many years ago, I went to China on a business delegation. A friend had brought along his new DSLR and I became fascinated. I decided to learn photography. I studied with several photographers and took workshops in Kolkata and London. That’s how it began. As I started taking pictures, I realized that I love taking candid shots of people and that I have always been fascinated with the possibility of freezing a moment for posterity.

Walking around the streets of Kolkata, I constantly see new things. I enjoy street photography more than any other form because of the unexpected nature of it. While taking pictures, I am amazed at the people I meet. I see the happiness on people’s faces and experience their immense openness and hospitality. At no point do I feel unsafe, even while shooting in the middle of the night. People are very friendly and I am amazed at the number of times I have been pulled out of a crowd of people to move ahead and take pictures. Slowly I have fallen in love with the city of Kolkata and the people whom I have met. My technique and style is simple, candid, and unobtrusive.

My career goals are for my work to be more widely exhibited in galleries and museums. As I devote more and more time to photography I find that I have ample, diverse subjects not only in Kolkata but also in my various travels around the world.

Lanon Prigge (South Africa)

Artist Statement:

I am a digital artist who sculpts colored light. For this reason my work demonstrates deep contrasts. This is how I reveal the metascape - the organizational patterns underlying our ordinary sense of reality. Aesthetics is the aspiration of the human soul. I believe the viewer of an artwork should be liberated, not contaminated, by the experience. For this reason, the artist should remain unseen so that the beauty of everything can be revealed.
