DIGITAL PAINTING

 

art: Steel and Glass

artist: Gloria King Merritt


medium: Digital

Every generation invents a new artistic technique or medium to create new ways to express the concepts, thoughts, and feelings of the age. Just as the painter's brush is an extension of their hand, so the compter is the extension of the creative mind. Although the techniques used to create the art are technologically complex, they produce beautiful and accessible works of fine art that convey fresh images and provoke new ideas.

I chose to present a diverse selction of digital painting styles for your consideration to deomstrate the breadth of possibilities. I love experimentation. Although I was trained in tradtional techniques and media, I know work almost exclusively with digital painting.

SURREALISM

artscope51_SepOct14_centerfold


art: Visitors

artist: Joey Mars


medium: acrylic, oil stick, enamel, and collage on canvas

Using drawing, painting and collage, I create and slice up fragments of time, nature and experience then assemble them ina flow of fact and fiction. As in dreams, anything is possible. Images are often related, grafted and spring from the previous. I often go in after and further cut up and rearrange the objects, words and backgrounds, creating further meaning and understanding of the information.

ABSTRACT ART


artscope51_JulAug14_centerfold

 

 

 

art: Passing Strange 4

artist: Adria Arch


medium: acrylic on mylar and paper

I look at the edges of things. The eccentric and unpredictable shapes found in unexpected places, the puddles and pools of spilled paint and the overlooked doodle found in the margins of a notebook, the swooping lines of tar patching the asphalt after a hard winter.

Older work explores unselfconscious doodles - a universal yet mysterious language. More recently, I use paint spills as a starting point for a series of new work on paper that I began on a residency at Sanskriti Foundation in India this year.

SUMMER

art: Always

artist: Cara Gonier


medium: acrylic on canvas

With formal training in traditional landscape painting, and drawn to abstract artwork, Gonier fuses both worlds by suppressing artistic details to produce a more meditative, atmospheric, sensorial work of art.

I describe my artistic process as a balance of planning and intuition influenced by my studies as a classical vocalist. I use music as a catalyst for visualization and movement, as I work along the surface of the canvas, layering heavy body acrylics with palette knife. I take care not to impose my thoughts or specific sources of inspiration. I believe that restraint invites viewers to create their own journeys.

BODY ART


artscope49_MarApr14_cf.gif

 

 

 

art: War & Peace,

artist: Paul Roustan


medium: Mehron Liquid makeup

Most known body-paintings objectify the model, like models on a runway, simply moving coathangers for the artworks on display. This is also true with regular canvas, an object that simply serves no other purpose but to be painted on. The viewer learns very little, if anything, of the person beneath the paint or fashion, or the canvas on which paint was applied. What separates me from other body painters is that I tackle the relevance of the produced artwork to the model it’s being applied on.

For me, this nude being, complete with unique experiences and personality, is someone to celebrate, not ignore. After all, it is a collaborative effort between my work and a model that exclaims, "Here I am, in my purest form. Look at me!"

ANIMATION

 

Animalia_CF_JanFeb14.jpg

 

art: Animalia
artist: C. Ryder Cooley

artist statement:

Animalia is an inter-species fairytale about a girl who must learn to fly in order to escape from social distress, environmental destruction and the threat of impending war. She connects with secret bee societies and then joins the circus only to discover it is a secret military operation. She then runs away to the woods and falls under the spell of a mystercal deer. When she becomes an antlered deer-creature, she finally achieves flying powers and enters an ethereal world of hybrid creatures.

Animalia the video has a multi-media performance piece that goes with this called Xmalia. We'd love to perform this around New England and elsewhere.
