The gallery’s competition for November 2022 was the 12th Annual “Nature” Online Art Competition. Both 2D and 3D, artists, from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s December 2022 online group art exhibition.

Artists were asked for their interpretation of the “Nature” theme by submitting their best abstract or representational art for this competition. The submission process and competition for the artists began in September 2022 and concluded on November 27, 2022.

The gallery received 531 entries from 25 different countries from around the world, as well as from 32 different states and the District of Columbia.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Ilona Abou-Zolof has been selected as one of the four winning artists of the gallery’s recent 22nd “Solo Art Series” Art Competition.  Ilona will now have a month-long solo art exhibition and she will be featured on the gallery’s front page, on the Gallery’s YouTube Channel, as well as in the “Solo Art Series” Archive.

Ilona is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning digital artist based in Australia. She will now be promoted by the gallery with an extensive public relations campaign.

For this solo exhibition, the Gallery will distribute, promote and circulate press releases to over 550+ major News Outlets, including Premium FOX, CBS, and NBC Affiliated Sites, with guaranteed inclusion on Google News & Bing News. The Gallery will also provide social media distribution through LST gallery’s broad social media network.

Ilona’s art will also be featured on the gallery’s YouTube Channel and with an event postcard.

The “Solo Art Series” is a series of monthly solo art exhibitions for established artists who have a body of work to present to the public.  Artist participants were asked to submit the following 3 components for the “Solo Art Series” competition: 1. Their art.  2. Their artist biography.  3.  Their artist statement.  These elements were evaluated and judged, which resulted in the selection of the artists who will be featured in individual month-long solo art exhibitions.  This was the 22nd “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

Below are Ilona’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 15 of her digital paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read Ilona’s information and to take a look at her artwork.

Artist Biography

Ilona is an image-maker and a digital artist. Taking images gives her as much fun as processing them. Digital tools and painting helped convert her photos and composites into digital art.

Learning new ways of making her art different gives her pleasure; she evolves and moves on, so she does not get boring to her viewers or bored with herself.

She is regularly published in International Art Magazines and participates in numerous Art Exhibitions. It is incredible what we can produce in the digital age, and it is fun.

Artist Statement

In these last two years, we had so many restrictions. We couldn’t travel overseas and sometimes not even to the next suburb. My art is my sanity. Some of you probably think the word sanity is not coming to mind when you look at some of my artwork. I kept swamped during this time. I also tried to get inventive and created my models in the digital world.

For this exhibition, I came up with the idea to paint portraits in the style of Art Deco. I painted the illustrations in Procreate on my iPad. It is fascinating that my art lets me bring my fantasy to print and that I can share my somewhat warped ideas with the viewers. I hope that my work evokes questions and triggers your fantasy.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Donna McGee has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Donna is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning artist based in Dublin, Ireland. Donna was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 22nd Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Donna’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Donna’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Donna McGee has developed a unique style in her art. Encompassing a diverse range of influences arising out of her love of travel, not least, to the spectacular coastlines of Ireland. Observing and capturing the restless elemental forces of this landscape and celebrating its timeless beauty is central to her work.

Donna is drawn to the allure of stormy skies, vibrant sunsets and the transformative effects of the ever-changing light, revealing a sense of the extraordinary in the ordinary. It creates an emotional response and a spiritual connection within the wonder of nature. She likes to work in oils and coupled with the use of a palette knife and the build-up of rich, tactile texture, her interpretation of the subject matter is transformed rather than merely recorded. She also enjoys the freedom of expression in the painting of abstract.

Creating art is an avenue for Donna to connect with a very large community of like-minded people. She is self-taught, but returned to college a number of times to study in the field of digital media production and marketing as she felt those skills were a must to survive in the art world. She appreciates the value in knowing that her work as an artist brings joy to others and considers it an absolute honour. It enables her to continue her passion in life— that is of course, painting!

Artist Statement

As a visual artist, working for over 20 years from my studio in Dublin, inspiration surrounds me by observing the timeless beauty of the Irish landscape. Expressing the extraordinary in the ordinary and a wish to share that magic with you. Taking note of the transformative effects of light on the subject matter can create mood and atmosphere – a luxurious mix of photo-realistic / abstract / ethereal / surreal qualities.

I like to paint places that I have visited that linger on my mind. Forever, drawn to the allure of brilliant sunsets, stormy skies contrasted against the rhythmic force of the ocean. I am spoilt for choice with Irelands’ stunning scenery – the Wild Atlantic Way – 1,600 miles of rugged coastal beauty. Also, Ireland’s Ancient East, the land of myths and legends, and the birthplace of Irish culture.

Oil paint is my favourite medium because of its vibrancy, a fusion of tones or rich and vivid colour. Coupled with the use of a palette knife, great tactile effects with layers of texture can be achieved. Best results happen when many layers are built up but it can be a slow process because of the drying time. I like to take creative license by adding surrealist elements to add to the mood of a painting. My process tends to me more intuitive rather than analytical as I am self-taught.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Judith M Orcutt has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Judy is an award-winning artist based in Savannah, Georgia, USA. Judy was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 22nd Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Judy’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Judy’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Judy Orcutt is a photographer from York, Pennsylvania. It is a lovely scenic area surrounded by Pennsylvania Dutch influence and rural beauty. She is a mainly self-taught artist. She has had art experience in calligraphy, pressed flower art, encaustics, and cold wax art. Her photography experience has been in the studio and with landscape work. Her delight is in photographing flowers and she has specialized in scanography which is what she is submitting here.

The flatbed scanner gives high resolution detail and consistent light and depth of field and shows great detail. It almost creates a 3D look. She finds this to be dramatic and enticing. She combines different botanicals and when the image is completed, there is an intense period of cleaning it up in PhotoShop as there is much debris. Her work is currently hanging in the Penn State Medical Health Hospital in Lancaster, Pa. Her work is also in many private collections. She now lives in Savannah, Georgia where coastal photography is calling her.

All of her art comes from the heart. She is a 25-year breast cancer survivor!!

Artist Statement

I fell in love with plants and botany when I studied them in Pharmacy School. The intricacies in design and the beautiful colors and the interactions with insects have fascinated me. Of course, the sheer beauty; and the gift we have been given fills my heart. I want to capture that to the best of my abilities. I have found that scanography (using the flatbed scanner as if it were my camera) is the best tool for me to accomplish this. The depth of field is shallow and that gives exquisite detail. It is almost as if the flower were in 3 dimensions. I hope you love my flowers as much as I do!

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Kyung Hee Im has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Im is an award-winning mixed media sculptor and installation artist based in Washington State, USA. She was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 22nd Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Im’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Im’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Seoul, South Korea-born Kyung Hee Im is a sculptor, an installation artist, and an educator. She moved to the USA in 2011. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from the University of West Georgia, and a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the University of North Texas. She taught 2D and 3D Design, and sculpture at the University of North Texas and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Im joined as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art and Design at Central Washington University in 2022. She has exhibited her artwork nationally and internationally including in South Korea, Carrollton, Georgia, Denton, Dallas, and Fort Worth, Texas. Also, she had several group and solo virtual exhibitions. She won first prize in Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and exhibition in 2021, and was an honorable mention in Envision Arts at the CoLab gallery in Denton, TX.

Artist Statement

My artwork explores cultural differences, connectedness, intimacy, and isolation with respect to digital communication tools and complex networking systems. My pieces highlight how physical isolation has become exaggerated in a post-internet world and the ways in which people maintain relationships through complex networking systems. My works depict the tension between feelings of alienation and the fragility of remote relationships.

The sculptures portray bodies that are often fragmented, their parts isolated from one another in space but also bound together by a network of fragile threads. The threads in my works represent intangible connections which are in a state of constant flux – sagging down or pulling taught under tension, getting clumped and twisted together, and becoming uniquely entangled with each and every movement. The pieces encapsulate my creative and academic interests, which are the various ways in which the arts intersect with new forms of technology, both in terms of form and content.

Congratulations to Lillian Anna Blouin for her acceptance into Fusion Art's Featured Artist Members Gallery.

Lillian Anna Blouin is an award-winning, hyper realistic artist based in Newport Beach, California, USA.

After receiving a BA in Illustration from Laguna College of Art and Design, she went on and built a successful career as an illustrator. However, after showcasing in several galleries within California, she quickly found much more fulfillment within the fine art community.

Lillian has a unique way of taking ordinary objects and creating surrealistic worlds. A devoted student of hyper-realism Lillian’s unique style of painting seeks to bridge together the worlds of the real and the unreal. Each piece is a surreal exploration of everyday objects with multiple interpretations behind each painting.

Lillian was awarded 1st Place Overall/Best in Show for her artwork, "Disordered Mind," in the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery’s 6th Annual “Patters, Textures & Forms” Online Art Exhibition in October 2022 and selected this Featured Artist membership as her award.

"Disordered Mind," uses the image of a Rubix Cube to symbolize a mind in turmoil. The mind of the cube has been scrambled, put in disarray, and even broken held together only in the most unstable of ways. This was meant to represent how many people felt after the pandemic, our minds tired and unfocused our plans broken and scrambled.  

Lillian also won 5th Place in LST’s  “Created in Isolation” Art Exhibition in the Spring/Summer of 2020.

She is a Fusion Art Featured Artist Member. Click below to visit her member artist webpage and to learn more about her.
