Nicholas Down, Paulo Medina, Mario Ortiz Martinez, Caryn Mitchell, Amiot Bernard, Yuming Zhu offering original Mixed Media artworks. Mixed media art uses more than one medium to create the work of art. The use of mixed media in art arose around 1910-1912 with Picasso and Georges Braque using different materials in their cubist collates. An open attitude towards using multiple media for creating art has enabled artist to create fantastic mixed media artworks. We often think of mixed media artworks as photographs that have been painted over or paintings that have included other media such as wood, paper and other elements in their compositions. Robert Rauschenberg in the 1950's employed this type of mixed media approach with his famous "Combines". Often earlier artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Kurt Schwitters, many Bauhaus artists, Joseph Cornell, Hannah Hoech and many others used found objects to incorporate in their works of art. Today many works of art and installations use the mixed media approach where German artists such as Anselm Kiefer come to mind. Yet, let's not forget Joseph Beuys and his mixed media works of art that could also include performance in the artistic end product. Other art forms such as books, collage, decollage, modular art, multimedia and new media art all use multiples materials.

  • Artists Describing Their Art:

    Nicholas Down - During the past few years I have had the privilege of visiting some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth including California's Sequoia National Forest, Yosemite and Joshua Tree National Parks, the red rocks of Sedona Arizona, the tough deserts of Canyonlands and Arches in Utah, Monument Valley in Navajo Nation, and of course the Grand Canyon. I was awestruck with the beauty and silences of these places and deeply inspired to create a number of new paintings and films which attempt to capture the essence of what I felt both as an artist and as a human being. I am increasingly aware of the threats to these landscapes, not just in the short term, but in the future, as the effects of climate change begin to alter rain patterns, glaciers and local ecologies in ways we are only just beginning to comprehend. My paintings are part of my extended homage to nature and are my abstract impressions of colour, mystery, and the spirit of place. My recent paintings have been hugely influenced by the winter here in New York State... frozen waterfalls, ice, snow drifts and landscapes blazing in winter hues. Technical Notes I continue to use the ...

    Paulo Medina - Para mA, el arte, ha sido como una pequeA+-a barca en donde he cruzado muchas veces el mar. Una barca frA!gil y pequeA+-a, sin embargo, capaz de cruzar hacia grandes horizontes. La barca ha sido un instrumento Aotil, pero nada mA!s... La pintura es poesAa silenciosa SimA3nides Artistic experience, as a spectator, and then, more directly, as an artist, has meant for me the possibility of transcending and reaching certain spaces that are intangible, but lived daily. As a creator, to be in front of a blank canvas or a digital image to be manipulated, is to be faced with a challenge that of translating to the language of forms, textures and colors something that has not yet been conceptualized, but that exists somewhere and that I desire to capture, expressing it through those materials and tools at my disposal. It thereby becomes a kind of game, in which time disappears and one enters into communion with the aesthetic experience with its infinity of moments, which go from pain to ecstasy. Self-taught experimentation in the field of art, has been for me one of the great pleasures of life. La experiencia artAstica ...

    Mario Ortiz Martinez - Mario Ortiz M. is a mexican artist living in Chihuahua, Mexico. My way of working is free, wild, spontaneous, many times a fruit of desperation and anxiety. It starts in a imperative moment of the day, no idea in my mind, in most cases is an irrational desire of painting and nothing more. Probably I have images that are stored in my imagination, or messages, or traces in my ADN of people of past eras. The paintings made in this way can be considered as Historic Landscapes of the mind, because they are reproductions of the influential ideas that are formed by unknow people who was consumed by suffering, doubts an desperation or characters in the top of the glory, erotic extasis, serenty, indiference or joy. The style of the paintings can best be described as wild impressionism. Sometimes they are more figurative, at other times fully abstract. Colour is very important for me the alchemy of colour. This defines for me the atmosphere of a painting. Usually I work in only a layer, tryng to capture the fire of a first unthinked idea. I let myself be guided automatically by the forms and colours that develop during the process ...

    Caryn Mitchell - Without art, the world would be quite a boring place to be. Many people choose their wall color with precision. The furniture with the utmost care. Accessories selected with love. They take great pride and comfort creating a timeless ambiance bringing a sense of order to otherwise, a chaotic world. My current medium of choice is mixed media and mosaic in a contemporary format. However, my background in art direction and graphic design has caused me to explore and consider additional medium outputs to establish other distinctive site-specific artwork in the near future. Life experience, travel, nature, patterns, textures and archetypes are part of my core inspirations. These days, I am inspired by simple forms, color, texture and mood. My artwork has become more simplified. I am appreciating abstraction more and more. The clarity and rhythm is bold, expansive and meditative. I often ponder, how to best translate the complexities of a subject into simple, juicy, reflective artworks that can fit into any space, anywhere. Artworks that raises peoplesaEURtm spirits in the process. Touch them in some way every day. Give cause to slow down and just ponder. Smell the roses Through my work, I aspire to inspire. Art ...

    Yuming Zhu - I land my brush with the force of a giant rock splashing into the ocean. I am not looking for a beautiful painting, but to express Life itself. Painting is just like a stacking of passions. Painting is a method of striping myself naked and facing the truth of my inner emotion. I invite the viewer to experience through my paintings the joy of being alive right at this moment. I believe I can do lots of things, but painting and poetry are the best beloved channels to express my complicated emotions. Originally from Shanghai, Yuming began studying under the masters at a young age. After his BA from China, Yuming came to the States and graduated from Sonoma State University with his MA in 1991. Working in oils, pastels and ChineseSumi Watercolors, Yumings work is a unique blend of East meets West artistry. It is a style that Yuming refers to as Transism, in reference to the constantly evolving interests, which include observations on modern life, a love of music, and an exploration of his own unique heritage. I paint to achieve balance and harmony. Once I reach that, I will for sure break itaEUR aEURoeMy art is just...
