Artist:

Madara Tropa (b. Latvia 1987) is a visual artist based in the United States. She completed her studies at the National University of Latvia, and “La Esmeralda” National University of Art in Mexico City. She has participated in group shows at the Equity Gallery in New York, the Museum of Mexico 

City, the Cultural Institute of Aguascalientes, the Modern Art Museum of Toluca, and others. Her artwork probes between the limits of fiction and reality, in the search for her most profound understanding of being. Using painting, installation, and video, Madara constructs dream-like spaces where the sense of human vacancy is uncertain and nebulous. This uncertainty entwines with the materials of ritual and magic, creating temporal shrines of intense auras of reflection, both personal and beyond.

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO MY RECENT PAINTINGS 

During the period of training my works were mostly the reflectionof the city life, the aspiration and dreams of the urban middle class living in a molt-cultural and multi-lingual society.  Those days I crated the works like ‘back to the city’, ‘nagorik’ etc., by mixed media.  

To develop the concept I have been traveling historical, and culturally significant places and try to conceptualize the togetherness of living and non-living objects and a sense of mystery.  Things and particular colour encompassed me, thus my creative mind and feelings is blend.  Through I have social, ritual relation with my surroundings, I would like to search there hidden relations of mine in my works.  It is known there a relation among the living and non- living beings in nature. I saw a rhythm with the costume, ornaments, happiness, sorrow and habits of the rural people, I is wonderful to me when I inhale those things then, I express my feelings of love through my visual art work.  Some times ‘ composition ‘ starts from my dream, which leads to reality by using any conventional and non- conventional skills. Here art evokes with emotion, braveness of mind and necessary experience.  A mysterious spiritual height appears in my recent works to illuminate the images.  Thus a series of paintings came out which were titled as  ‘ conceptual –scape’.  It happened in my sub conscious and not on any stereotype conventional norms, they are unique on there own right as my feelings are.

We know the nature has a universal approach that I would like to share.  I visited Ajanta and Ellora and surrounding caves where I saw yellowish stone in roof and ceiling and walls in cave perhaps that was a meditation room and yellow colour also represents knowledge and intelligibility.  Where the ancient highly skilled sculptor did purposely or not is not a vital matter to me at that moment, but I was intoxicated by the environment of Ellora.  So I expressed my feelings through there ‘ mind scapes” for that purpose I have to travel more. 

In my works human figure and other objects some times signify a character sometimes not, simultaneously they are used to balance the paintings.  The motives are also used to decorate the painted surfaces.  Colour used in big space come balance, blue for communication and knowledge or red for empowerment.  I forgot my which at action yet the final eventuality of unconscious effort does bare conspicuously my nature and attitude. 

My pleasure gets multiplied if my art soothes the sole of the viewers and comfort their mind and eye.  Somewhere my works have got flavors of spirituality and miniature of ancient Indian art.

2D Artwork by Cynthia Yatchman

July Online Open Mic

Cynthia Yatchman’s serene and exotic paintings are sure to bring goodness to your day! She captures the many layers to life, the bold and the subtle, creating a sense of magic that rests in the simple beauties.


Artist Statement-In my 2D work, I work primarily with acrylic and latex paints, inks, papers and charcoal. My images contain many diverse layers of meaning from the universal to the specific and personal. My works are often abstract. I am frequently interested in pattern and/or creating a rich sensual surface by making layer upon layer of marks. There is often an unseen history within these layers as images are obscured and revealed. My work frequently gives reference to my experience with nature and I usually have an ongoing series that is more representational focusing on flowers, birds and animals and the human figure. At times my work speaks to issues of social justice, revelation and connection.


Artist:

Cynthia Yatchman is a Seattle based artist and art instructor. With an M.A. in child development and a B. A. in education, she has a strong interest in art education and teaches art to adults, children and families. A former ceramicist, she studied with J.T. Abernathy in Ann Arbor, MI. After receiving her B.F.A. in painting from the University of Washington she changed to 2D work and has stayed there since, working primarily on paintings, prints and collages.

Terraforming – Oil Paintings by Anne Wölk

Still Shining

I was so entranced by Anne Wölk’s pieces, and I know you will be too! She is a German visual artist and she brings the feeling of energy and beauty to life in these paintings below. Go take a look!


Terraforming,

2020Diptych,

140 x 70 cm, 

Oil on canvas
Text: 
Artproject for the UN in Geneva. “How do we want to live in the future?”
Earth and beyondThe future we want to see is all about preserving our planet. Earth is the only inhabitable planet we know. The only place where life can flourish. Life anywhere else would look very different. And yet human nature possesses an inherent curiosity about what lies beyond our horizon.


Artist:

Anne Wölk is a German visual artist best known for light-flooded romantic starscapes accompanied by birch trees. Her fantastic multilayered narrations are like cinematic sceneries and refer to science fiction movies and novels. The artist redefines the genre of landscape painting through the innovative use of geometric patterns to disrupt the composition’s moments of depth perception.

Wölk’s subject matter speaks of the imagery of futuristic science and technology, which we have only become familiar with from the advances of satellites and cameras, and moreover, in cinematography and computer-generated images. The artist paints a fantastical interpretation of nature, in which Romanticism and utopia are perceptible at the same time. 

Especially noteworthy are her late small-scale paintings in which Wölk deals with the subject matter of light pollution. She contrasts natural light phenomena, such as the glow of the Milky Way, with the bizarre visual effect of colorful LED tubes. Artificial light, placed by the tourist industry, can be found, e.g., in the nocturnal landscape, to impress tourists in ski resorts on mountains. 

Anne Wölk received an MFA from The School of Art and Design Berlin and was a BFA student at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London.

In 2009, the young artist became known for her colorful birch tree paintings and was selected and shortlisted for several international competitions and scholarships.

Her awards include the national Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes scholarship; the Alpine Fellowship grant at Aldourie Castle, Scotland, UK; a Grand Prize from Papirmasse Montréal, Canada; a residency at Bodensee Art Fund; and an artist-in-residence grant in Goriska Brda, Slovenia, awarded by the German Embassy, Ljubljana. She has exhibited at international institutions, e.g., the Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art, Istanbul, Turkey; the CICA Art Museum South Korea; the Accra Goethe-Institut Ghana; and the Kyrgyz National Museum of Fine Arts, Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republik.

Wölk has exhibited her work alongside artists like Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy Sherman, Johannes Wohnseifer, Azade Köker, and Stephan Balkenhol. In 2011, she was selected for the Edition S 36 of DSV Kunst Kontor, Stuttgart. The Edition S 36 was a compilation of contemporary artworks, including paintings of Jonathan Meese and Tim Eitel.

She has exhibited and sold on the international art market, including the Swab Art Fair Barcelona in Spain; Viennafair in Vienna, Austria; KIAF Seoul in South Korea; and Contemporary Istanbul in Turkey.

Wölk has since shown her work in private gallery shows, including Galería Luis Adelantado, Valencia, Spain; Arebyte Gallery, London, UK; Galerie Wolfsen, Aalborg, Denmark; Pantocrator Gallery, Shanghai, China; and The Residence Gallery, London, UK.

In October 2013, she won the Category Award for ‘Art Takes Paris’, judged by directors from The Andy Warhol Museum in New York, Lisson Gallery, and the Marianne Boesky Gallery. In 2014 and 2019, the painter was selected to participate in the Finalists exhibition of the art competition Art Revolution in Taipei, Taiwan.

Artist:

Suryani:

I was born at Banyuwangi East Java,Indonesia.

I have graduated  from Stiba University in Malang, East Java,Indonesia with a bachelor of arts degree in foreign literature and languages, I fell in love with art and I cannot stop loving it. I read a book “Everyone can draw” which motivated me to start learning how to draw, I then completed a private art course for 6 months, it turns out that I am an artist. Bali inspired me as strongly as the artistic blood is flowing in me. Artists such as William Hofker and Ton Schulten have inspired and influenced my style of art.  Aboriginal art also has had a profound influence.

By following modern arts and through self-development, I have finally became a consensusism artist.

Consensusism style is characterized by abstract geometric compositional works in balance with the roots of impressionism and the elements of shape, light and color.
