Artists Describing Their Art:

Zoltan Janvary - I grew up in 20th century Hungary. Our political leaders were in fear of new art movements, so that there was nothing available but the teaching and studying of classical art. In addition to this training, find inspiration in history, literature and mythology, and these forces blend with my current experience. It is the challenge of this tension between the well-known and that which must be discovered that provides me with the greatest joy in both teaching and in my own private practice. ...

Sergio Olivosm - Investigating themes of humanity and human nature ... is what my pieces are a reflection of--an imprint...a memoir and a motive for reflection about my life and times. The presence and absence of objects (bullets, knives, teeth) play an important part in'rememberance' and the act of'provoking thought'. Being in the presence of an object we know is used to wound, to the print marking the obvious absence of the same- leaves one with thoughts of our own certain reality: our every day knowledge of the violence around me directly and/or indirectly. Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Israel, Ciudad Juarez- from my Mexico , My new home: Washington DC (this summer 2006--- 15+ murders.. and counting). Realities can also be simple as they surround me. My constant fascination with the beauty of insects and other found objects leads me to memorialize them on my canvases (btw: I only keep them when dead). In Mexico it was scorpions.... now in the Washington DC area, I am turning to wasps and cicadas. ...

Alberto Martorana - Each of my projects corresponds to a thread in my life. Each of them is related to how my sense of reality is impacted by what I'm living. There's an intimate connection between the drama in my life and the drama in my work. The connection is not necessarily an obvious one, but a symbolic one. The symbols are drawn from different traditions; their insertion into my projects has a lot to do on how they provide support and connection to the reality I live. Conceptually, my art is an expression associated to my personal circumstances but not a representation of them. It is a quest for wholeness, especially at moments in which my emotions and reason antagonize. Art for me is neither a ritual nor an opportunity for psychoanalysis. A ritual implies a covenant; psychoanalysis implies a search for a remedy. Art for me, is neither a negotiation nor a solution, it's a process of realization. I think, I draw, I paint, I play It's my way of finding sense to life. What is that fuels of my art? My mortality does. It's possible to forget my inadequacies as long as I'm here ...

Jessie Fritsch - My work represents moments in my life that I am certain about. I have found that producing art is a way of processing people and places that have impacted me in some way. I work from photographs that have captured an experience that has influenced me in a positive or negative way. While I am painting I am sorting through the emotions, the moods, and the opinions I have about that subject. When the image is finished it reflects the understanding and content I have with that subject matter. I began primarily using encaustics because I wanted a challenge and I was fascinated with its ancient history. Encaustic differs from other paints in the fact that the molten wax begins to harden the moment it leaves the heat source. To fight the essential character is to be defeated. In encaustic painting one needs to literally go with the flow. That means working quickly to place your stroke, even if you have to contemplate for twenty minutes on precisely where to place it. This medium reflects the process my mind is beginning to take. Encaustic is a layering process. Layering the surface of the painting with beeswax is much like the ...

Jan Harrison - A close connection with the animal nature has helped me to have more empathy with all manifestations of the life force, and to express the complex experience of what it is to be here as a flesh and blood being. As long as I can remember, I have loved animals and felt a kinship with them. I live with five cats, all rescued strays, and one feral. They are an inspiration to me, and I learn from them. Emotion has always played a part in my work, as well as the kind of mythology that comes from the body's sensual and spiritual desires, something felt in the bones and cells. I am concerned about the need for love in a world that does not respect vulnerability. I am also concerned about the need for self respect in a world that seems to disrespect the power of the life force. I am working for my character, and my work is concerned with the paradox of the power of nature with regard to our own sense of order or justice. Through communion with the animal nature, I am interested in the integration of instinct and intellect, knowledge and innocence, power and ...

Christian Faur - My oil painting technique is unique in that I meticulously work the canvas, building layer upon layer of hand mixed oils and varnishes, achieving an astonishing degree of luminosity and intriguing brilliance. The novel use of stencils to impart detailed information, such as numeric patterns and text, lends a coldly mechanical feeling to my works while providing the vehicle for many of the metaphors that are present within each painting. The use of these stencils allows for an unusual control of the medium since the canvas can be impregnated with elaborate bits of information, an allegory to today's information overflow. Once the oil paint is pushed through the mesh of the silkscreen, it is then scraped, blended, blurred and further manipulated to achieve the desired effect. The line between printmaking and fine painting is blurred as each layer is built upon the next. The product is a richly luminous surreal painting that evokes both contemplative thoughts and strong emotional responses. I have been working with the encaustic material for a little over a year now. I have been drawn to the astonishingly organic texture and surface of the medium. I think that painting is very much like solving a ...

Perach Cohen - Welcome to my profile! a journey of paintings and feelings combined together! My paintings are generally abstract-figurative. I like to paint landscape and I'm enchanted by it's colours, atmosphere and light which I translate on the canvas. My works are generally painted in acrylic or oil colours but I include other mediums such as aquarelle, choosing the best way to express inner emotions on the canvas. It is not intended to duplicate landscapes or to copy them, but instead transmitting it to the canvas after combining them with my own feelings and emotions while observing the beauty of nature. Seldom, my landscape paintings are a dialogue between myself and the canavas by delicate brush touches that has the lyrical, nostalgic, romantic and expressive features, transforming it into personal landscapes, expressing memories and dreams, almost no realism but a true result of my imagination....

Helen Musser - Art is the very essence of our being. It is the visible evidence of our intrinsic nature The artist executes his work in accordance with inner values and beliefs he or she hold dear. Painting is a joy and an artform to be shared. I want to connect with the viewer and remind him of the many facets of his life. Our inner life has become very important to my art,the spirit of man,I hope to show. That part of man that will never die. ...

Bridget Busutil - Bridget Busutil,google22976108fdd647b3.html Powered by View my page on Peacemaker Institute ARTIST STATEMENT. Art is a way of Life My life is about Art and reflects the multicultural diversity in which I was raised. I favour projects that mix Arts and multiculturalism and are interdisciplinary. I think that as an artist my world is not limited to an aesthetical dimension. Hopefully it goes beyond, through engaging a dialogue with the viewer that proposes discovery, criticism and reflection. Through my work I am offering the discovery of several worlds packed up in layers as in my encaustic, a sort of journey of self-discovery, as well as discovery of i?1/2the otheri?1/2 with the respect for cultural differences. The necessity is to succeed in viewing these differences as contributions to our own cultures and understand the wealth they have to offer. When I paint or teach students to draw a linei?1/2, I am aware of reaching out for a world without frontiers. Technically I wish to bridge the past to the present and show that there is a continuity in life experience that only artists are capable of showing. Keyword Optimizer ...

Gudrun Ploetz - My paintings are all "wanted" paintings. That's a base thing I believe in. I think paintings and art in general is good if the artist wanted it and it came from his inside. Some artist "want" to do arts when they are down, some other paint when they feel well. I belong to the last ones. My paintings show the times my soul felt good. I can't paint when I'm down. Then I need music. But the more paintings I do in my good times, the longer I feel good. A good feeling, people I meet who touch my soul, warm words and good talks can inspire me a lot. And I want to transfer those, my good feelings to other people. Art is kind of healing, art can give you the power for the next step into the hard daily life process. That's why artists are necessary in this world, to make people happy, to give their eyes and their souls a gentle touch, to inspire them to try it themselves, to come in contact with paint and drawing pen. My paintings are all around colour, the first thing I notice myself at a painting ...
