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 23rd “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

Below are Nathan’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 16 of his paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read Nathan’s information and to take a look at his beautiful artworks.

Artist Biography

Born in the summer of 1980 in Iowa City, IA, Nathan has been interested in art his entire life. His earliest memories are of laying on his bedroom floor drawing pictures of people, nature, and copying pictures from magazines. He is blessed to maintain his childhood sense of awe and wonder when creating and experiencing art he loves.

Through studying 17th and 18th century oil painting techniques Nathan has developed the process of beginning all of his paintings with rough graphite drawings to establish scale and perspective. He then proceeds with multiple under-paintings of umber and grey tones, then finally complete the work with many thin glazes of color.

In 2011, Nathan graduated from the University of Iowa with a BFA in painting and drawing. Upon graduating he worked in Austin, TX and NYC managing print shops until he moved back to Iowa City to dedicate himself to painting full time. He finds inspiration in everyday people and situations, attempting to see the sublime in the mundane. Art is a way to find inspiration and to drive towards something higher than the self to access the pure bliss that lies behind prosaic surfaces. He hopes his art work offers the viewer a glimpse of that bliss.

Artist Statement

I create my paintings as a meditation on being and non-being. I am interested in the thin grey area between diametrically opposed positions, thoughts or behaviors, the more these two objects differ, the more similar they become. Painting is a practice that opens up a space to interrogate this transcendent grey are. My primary materials are pigments, linseed oil, damar varnish, turpentine, sable brushes, a glass palette, cotton duck canvas, etc. Josef Albers' book on color theory, as well as, The Artist's Handbook of Materials and Techniques, a reference book by Ralph Mayer, became my bibles in college and I continue to use them as my fondest wells of knowledge.

Nathan’s work can be viewed on his website.

The gallery’s competition for December 2023 was the 13th Annual “Botanicals” 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 January 2023 online group art exhibition.

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

The gallery received 655 entries from 21 different countries from around the world, as well as from 40 different states and the District of Columbia.   

The exhibition has been divided into three media categories - Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3 Dimensional categories.  In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the twelve (12) best entries comprised from all the media categories.

The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.

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 BeeHoon Lim 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.

BeeHoon is an award-winning artist based in Malaysia. BeeHoon was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 19th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

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

Artist Biography

BeeHoon Lim is a self-taught artist, retired teacher, mother and grandmother with a history of passion for art. Denied of the opportunity to pursue this love due to finances, work career, marriage and caring for her children, she finally got time upon retirement to indulge in this passion. Now she devotes her time creating works of art and craft. It is never too late to achieve one's dream. She wants to inspire and share with all her genuine works of art.

Artist Statement

A significant feature in my paintings is FLOW. I love to demonstrate a FLOW in everything I draw. Each flow tells a story. Drawn with intention, each smooth and graceful twist and turn leads to a certain direction. This is to tell the viewers that the flow that we choose to follow always ends with a mission. Either we achieve the aim we want or we let it continue until it meets its fate. I compare this flow in my paintings to our journey through Life. Life ahead is unpredictable, a mystery and when one sails through, one meets challenges. We have the option to maneuver our way through and let it flow in a positive direction. Adding flow to my paintings give a softening effect to whatever I draw, erasing the harsh lines and edges. When my paintings are hung on the wall, it never fails to soften the hard walls behind bringing forth a calm and soothing effect to the area.

BeeHoon can be reached via her Email.
