Michael Schaffer, Emilio Merlina, Ryan Ilinca, Scott Young, Reni Varoli, Steven Lamb 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.
Michael Schaffer - Exploring the realms of color, texture, drama, and feelings are the main ingredients of my art work. To inspire the viewer to deal with the issues presented to him is my goal. To inspire the viewer to interpret and react is my passion. I hope you have been inspired... or at least have an opinion. Art and life have many of the same ingredients for us to enjoy....
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 ...
Scott Young - In recent projects I have addressed personal and collective memory through the lives of well-used objects. I am captivated by the idea of "textures" as a period of the natural. To define what I mean by natural, the works of Andy Goldsworthy, his work is an inspiration that helps me create my own art. Most of my work look like or reference familiar objects but their intended use is unexpected, and thus crates an uncertain and sometimes humorous relationship between nature and human. By engaging the senses and drawing out the intimacy of a natural moment I hope to expand and contact our most precious of resources. I am a full time freelance graphic designer since 2008. My focus is infographics and icons. When not working on a freelance project, I am drawingpainting in my studio or out on the water rowing....
Reni Varoli - My art and my soul are related , my soul and my feelings are related ... When I am painting I don't think I just BE ! If you need to ask me the reason why I paint , is because you do not get me , then if you can' get me , ma painting will not satisfy your soul....
Steven Lamb - Ever since I remember myself as a person I dealt with my life by isolating myself and creating.For me the painting is not just a creative discipline, it's a vocation. To be able to deliver my visions and fantasies to the world, I trained myself in the Academy of Fine Arts in Leipzig, Germany. My perception of the world is always from a comical point of view. I have reached the conclusion for myself, that what matters the most ,is the human ability to laugh. I am using the grotesque as a tool of a social commentary, not to criticize , but to amuse and entertain. In most of my work I take inspiration from the beauty of the Montreal, its streets, buildings and people. Cafe scenes, clowns, magicians,singers,artists,families walking their dogs,coaches riding around are all funny,happy and exciting models for my work.The choice of the characters is influenced by my understanding of the world which I see through the eyes of a child.The people and animals in my paintings are always happy and ready to enjoy every little bit of their lives. Their appearances and clothing are not related to any ...
