Artist Biography

Rich DiSilvio was born in NY and lives on Long Island. He studied art in college and at the Traditional Academy of Painting, under a protégé of Norman Rockwell.

With a solid foundation in realism, DiSilvio ventured into surrealism, fantasy, and sci-fi art, being inspired by such artists as Salvador Dali, Frank Frazetta and Roger Dean. DiSilvio’s goals as he states “is to focus on the one ability that humans have that no other earthly creature shares, namely the imagination.” He works in oils and acrylics, with an emphasis on digital and photo-manipulation in recent years.

Rich’s art and new media work in the music and entertainment industries earned him an international presence, having worked on projects for Pink Floyd, Yes, Moody Blues, Alice Cooper and on various films. Additionally, as an award-winning author, DiSilvio has written about famous artists in fiction and non-fiction, with his "Arnolfini Art Mysteries" series being perhaps the most notable.

Meanwhile his award-winning fine art has appeared in galleries across the USA, from New York to California. His works appear in private and corporate collections, in the 9-11 Memorial Museum and Italian-American museum in NYC, while his painting of the famous composer Peter Tchaikovsky resides at the Tchaikovsky Estate Museum in Votkinsk, Russia.

Artist Statement

The Animal Series is based primarily on two premises, namely that our fellow inhabitants have always enamored humans, be they domesticated and friendly or wild predators. As such, they make appealing subject matter.

And second is that the human species differs from the animal kingdom in its ability to create what does not exist, as the imagination is not something our fellow creatures share. Thus, this series celebrates those combined aspects, to be either whimsical or provocative.

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!

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.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Liza Botkin 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.

Liza award-winning photographer based in Los Angeles, CA, USA. Liza 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.

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

Artist Biography

Liza Botkin was born and raised in New York City. She graduated from The Brearley School and attended Syracuse University and Hunter College. In 1971, Liza moved to Los Angeles where she worked 9 to 5, mostly in the entertainment industry.

After working as a studio manager for Michael Childers, she purchased a Leica CL camera, took a photography course at Fairfax High School and her photography career began.

During the 70s and early 80s she roamed the streets, department stores, markets and public gatherings of L.A. She entered competitions and was chosen to be in several publications and shows. In 1983, she stopped shooting, got married and her Leica sat in a drawer for the next 15 years. In early 1998, at her husband's urging, she brought the Leica out of the drawer, built a darkroom, and she’s been shooting and printing ever since.

Liza still hangs out in malls, markets and places where large groups of people tend to gather. She takes her camera with her every day, shooting "from the hip" because she doesn’t want people to be aware of her. She takes pictures where the subjects are weirdly but humorously interacting, in moments that amuse her and makes her smile when they come up in the developer.

Artist Statement

I was born and raised in New York City, but my photographic career began in Los Angeles in the 70s while I was working for photographers Michael Childers and Lou Stoumen, from whom I learned how to print.

I consider myself a street photographer, shooting from the hip, taking my camera with me wherever I go. I wander the streets of Los Angeles, spending much of my time in malls where, for many years, I’ve been documenting the preoccupation many people have with shopping.

Though I’ve never studied the art of photography in an academic setting, my work is deeply influenced and defined by that of Henri Cartier-Bresson. I, too, search for what he so aptly called “the decisive moment.”

Artist Biography

Eileen E. Senter is a self-taught digital artist. She has always enjoyed art and dabbled in t-shirt painting, ceramics and clay molding. However, after retirement with the British Government 15 years ago, she chose photography as her medium of choice.

Her first camera was a Kodak instamatic but Eileen has never liked straight out of the camera images and very soon researched various software photography programs that would help her grow as an artist and showcase her artwork. She blends programs together, sometimes two to three times until she gets to the “aha moment!”

Eileen’s favorite subjects are wildlife, flowers, rural scenes for composites, anything in nature. Her work has been published in the Galveston Monthly magazines a few times.

Artist Statement

I am originally from Nottingham, England, now living in Texas with my Husband, who is my best friend and avid supporter of my work. I have always had a desire for photography but creating art is my true passion. I am self-taught and work with many digital programs using my images to create and compose with the desire of bringing to life what I see through the camera for a finished and combined work of art.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Paula Rozov 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.

Paula is an award-winning artist based in North Carolina, USA. Paula 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.

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

Artist Biography

Paula Rozov’s art education began as an adult in the Upper Valley of the Connecticut River on the Appalachian Trail, a “spiritual place” that nurtures the time, space and breath needed for aesthetic exploration. Her mentor for eight years was Aidron Duckworth, PhD, sculptor, who had worked and taught all over the world. She completed a degree with the human figure as my focus followed by eight years of formal drawing and painting instruction.

Paula’s final study, "When God Was a Man", was completed at Vermont College of Norwich University with a thesis and full gallery show. Through the years, she has been fortunate to be included in juried shows and galleries as she moved around and traveled from east to west coast and back, Europe, Canada and Mexico. Paula taught in public school, in business and privately. She was born and raised on the beautiful coast of North Carolina and is happy to be back.

Artist Statement

With life come first impressions, from birth to the end whether we honor them or not, they are a true thing about us. The control we have over them is questionable, even when we are trying to think about it. If I am true to it, my imagery will be honest, as the first time I glimpsed a thing. That is the challenge - to leave the essence with each stroke of the knife or brush. It's the reason we put so much stock in the images produced by children. There is no editorializing, no second guessing, just the first true thought or vision - no hint of everything going on at the time whether pleasing or excruciatingly mundane or tragic or sad. I have found over the years that I know in the moment, that which I will want to carry with me. I will want to see it again and feel and smell that moment again. Painting brings me back to it, looking and thinking, trying to prevent time from taking its toll. It is ​a process I will always love.
