My passion for photography goes back to thirty years ago during my university education in science and my first and only scientific photography class. Since then, I have been pursuing my skills, mainly in nature photography. For the last 7 years, I have shifted to digital photography and I have participated regularly in contests on this topic, especially in macro photography.
Displaced to Athens, Greece from a small modest villa on an island across Italy, Argostolion, Kefallinia, Greece, after a devastating earthquake arriving to the US was inevitable. Tutored prior to age five helped in advancing in school and previously knowing the English language. Already noticed and encouraged by teachers and the principal in Greece, to draw the passion continued in all arts. Here in the US, the encouragement was the same by many wonderful teachers in Illinois, with art projects phenomenally full of creativity, and fun. Meeting some master artists at this time was a most exciting treat with an intellectual reciprocation upon interacting that contributed in confidence, creativity, and stretching the imagination beyond.
Throughout my life I have always had a greater visual sense about how the world looked versus other senses. This visual dominance in perceiving the world has profoundly affected my work as an artist. My art offers an infinite variety of visual perceptions and interpretations for the viewer. The viewer is told what the “real Life” image is in the title of the piece, but through abstraction and reconstruction of that image, the viewer is then asked and challenged to explore the shapes, colors, movements and forms, which the abstraction and reconstruction presents. Colors and shapes become emotion, while form and movement become attitude.
Based in Chicago, USA, Jason Fairchild is a modern artist that currently uses painting as the fastest and best way to get his message out there. Women are the center of the art of Jason Fairchild: or to be more accurate women and the unique forms of space that surround them. (Untitled)
The women he portrays are not the everyday women we see on the street waiting for buses or shopping in the neighborhood supermarket, they are sexually charged nude or semi-nude figures that seem part lover, part mother, part dream girlfriend, part wife, part earth goddess. They are figures of beauty, pleasure, pain, mysticism and fantasy. (Angel of Destruction)
We can sense all the depth which marks the vital and creative process of Gabriel Gross, an artist in constant dialogue with the different scopes of contemporary art, and who above all is interested in a presence that is in his intense path, in his neofigurative periods, as well as in his abstract research.
A heart beat. It is one pattern that we all feel. Through the heart of each of us love flows both primal and eternal. Touching the sacred space of eternal love leads to wondrous worlds that can be explored, viewed and understood, and as this is done, you will facilitate your own healing, at a deeper subconscious level.Inside of that space deep, within the universal heart, the love of existence flows. It is a vibration that is timeless and shapeless yet with clear form. It is waiting to be explored, understood and coaxed from the source.From this deep wellspring of cosmic awareness come natural archetypes. They flow past our mind’s eye and pause.
When Jacqui Morgan received her BFA from Pratt, she entered a world without any female illustrators. She with Barbara Nessim and Lorraine Fox who passed away very young, were the first and only working female illustrators. During the heyday of the psychedelic, she designed and illustrated the iconic Electric Circus Poster and went on to create more iconic images for the American Optometric Association, Sansui, Scott Printing, Celanese, Exxon, and 7UP Billboards. Unique covers for American Artist Magazine, Mac Millan Books, Print Magazine and Cosmopolitan along with album covers for RCA, ads for DeBeers diamonds and animated commercials for Burlington Mills and General Mills were among her achievements. She always loved science fiction and illustrated a few anthologies for young readers.
