Dennis Mccallum, Abby Jones, Jim Bilgere, Environmental Artist Apollo, Oleg Buryan, Valda Fitzpatrick, John Powell, Emilio Merlina, Irina Maiboroda, Chris Jehn, Avery Bradshaw 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:

Dennis Mccallum - For a number of years I was the UK Government protected species rehabilitator to the wild of injured birds of prey. In this time I was able to observe and handle wild birds and animals. They were my inspiration and provided the subject matter for my paintings. Having been a surveyor with the UK Ordnance Survey which makes the British maps, I was trained to represent images with accuracy and detail and this I do in my paintings from studying the birds at close quarters. I also have the freedom to explore any subject that interests me. My work has been challenging, but always enjoyable and that is my reason for painting...

Abby Jones - As an artist I am fascinated with the basic scientific principle that energy is neither created nor destroyed. Energy changes form from potential energy to kinetic energy and back. I explore the threshold of change; when potential energy becomes kinetic energy. That energy exists in the creative process of art making as well as life. That tension that makes us hold our breaths in anticipation and the release into eventual movement is the potential and kinetic energy we encounter in everyday life. My works strive to capture these forms of energy that exist in all of us. I use multi-media including mirror, wood, metal, stained glass, and paper on top of silky oils to achieve a sense of texture and contrast that creates tension. I also use shapes, lines, and color vigorously applied to achieve a sense of movement and fluidity. If the potential energy of my idea can move someone to feel an emotion then that is the kinetic energy of life derived from art. If a work can convey that sense of energy to the observer then the piece has done its job. ...

Environmental Artist Apollo - "The beauty of our planet should be held in respect as well as reverence and awe! As the care takers of this precious jewel called Earth it is our duty to become more harmonious with our environment, for what we hold in our hands is a trust for future generations.

Since that time he has developed a Worldwide Following and has had the privilege to work with several Environmental Groups to raise both funding and awareness. ...

Valda Fitzpatrick - I believe that art is a reflection of who you are as a person and artist. It is a culmination of ones experiences and exposure to life. Art has always been the heart of my soul.While growing up in Europe, I was exposed to a rich cultural environment. My fascination for flowers,their colors and shapes,trees,the alps, all are echoed in my work. Although abstract in form, the initial concept of my designs stem from reality. For wherever I go ,nature always follows me....

John Powell - My art evoke a dialogue a message as a language I speak to create peace in a cosmic dialogue. If you are not honest,dont make artbecause ART is TRUTH time is Life time ceases to existdeath exist time is temporarytime movestime traps itself in timetime exist in time. My work speaks in a context of time,a painter and more recently exploring Photography.I choose not to privilege any one medium.The emotional and psychological content of my subject,the way the body expresses its dialogueemotion.It contextualizes the concepts of the duality of the meaning of the imagery. My style is an expression of my phillosophy which becomes a language,using,Post Modern,Expressionism,Latin American Tradition,Surrealism,soft Classism and Photography.It expresses my deep awareness of global issues and is counterbalanced with my cultural heritage. My inspiration originates from lifenature Its too spiritual to express.However,it is the same expressive energy as the work,transfused between energiesI use a certain iconograhy,which becomes a language. My art has helped me to see that nothing on earth is solitary,all things are interlinked. In order to see the impossible,you need to see the invisible My ...

Emilio Merlina - I was born in 1950 in the North East of Italy from a polish mother and a sicilian father. I toured the world until I was 35, then I returned to Italy and picked up again my old passion painting and sculpture. As for myself, I can only say thoughts and paintings, paintings and thoughts. Everything maybe useless, however everything is life. i?1/2The human being leaves its signs, graffiti, indian dreams and imagination. Now I only have left a few more possibilities to express the colors which are not. Only the sign, scratched, angry or brushed is the witness. The sign has passed from there and there it has lived.i?1/2 Emilio Merlina Some hear if a door opens Others hear a latch which opens or closes Others more they hear the Angel when he turns over a page of the Great Book From the novel Missa Sine Nomine By Ernst Wiechert I have words which relegate my hunger And the hunger which owns my body but which do not confine them I have words which are both my confined hunger and body By the Italian poetess Paola Lovisolo ...

Chris Jehn - I am primarily a self taught artist and have always felt creative. I worked my way through college by teaching crafts at an arts and crafts store, everything from embroidery and macrame to tole painting and pottery. I have taken numerous workshops from other practicing artists. Being with a group of other artists creates a synergy that inspires me. I now primarily work with acrylics and collage. I especially love intense color, and have made a study of color composition. One of the main reasons I live in Colorado is because almost everywhere you look there is something wonderful, and IaEURtmm compelled to try to paint what I see and feel. ...
