Artist Biography

Maxwell G. Miller (b.1992) is an American contemporary realist artist working in the Dominican Republic. His artistic career began in the theatrical arts, where he became well known for specializing in large-scale theatrical puppetry. He served as director, artistic designer, and scenic artist for several theater organizations based in Cleveland, OH before pursuing visual art professionally in 2017.

After refining his technique and developing an interest in mythology and history painting, he relocated to Scranton, PA in 2020 to complete an apprenticeship with master artist Anthony Waichulis at the ÀNI Art Academy. He completed his apprenticeship in 2022 and now serves as the Dean of the ÀNI Art Academies Dominicana in Río San Juan, Dominican Republic, where he strives to cultivate a richer artistic community through artistic education.

Maxwell’s sense of theatricality has continued to influence his compositions and has developed into a portfolio of dramatic portraiture and dense still life with a focus on storytelling. His work has received international awards and recognition from leading art competitions and major arts publications including The Art Renewal Center, The Boynes Artist Award, National Art League, The FiKVA Foundation, Bold Brush, The Artist’s Network, Southwest Art Magazine, Art Base, and Art Week. He is an associate member of the Oil Painters of America, an affiliated artist of Lovetts Gallery, and has works in private collections across the globe.

Artist Statement

My career began in the theatrical arts as a specialist in theatrical puppetry. I always enjoyed the process of visual problem solving: How can I take rigid materials and manipulate them to move in a fluid, life-like way? As I refined my techniques in the visual arts, I discovered that by manipulating charcoal and oil paint in the same way, it is uniquely possible to contain the entirety of a complex story in a single image. I developed a particular interest in mythology and history painting, and my work has become an extension of this style of storytelling.

Realism gives me the ability to clearly communicate through recognizable imagery. I find inspiration in other artistic media that focuses on storytelling - music, movies, tv shows, folklore, and mythology - but I’m most inspired by theatrical arts and puppetry. I enjoy creating artwork containing several figures or dense still life, and most of my work falls somewhere in that range.

There is a revival of realism happening now that I strive to be a part of. My sense of theatricality has continued to influence my compositions and has developed into a portfolio of dramatic portraiture and dense still life with a focus on storytelling.

Their art.  2.

Artist Biography

Elaine Franz Witten majored in art at Connecticut College, New London, Connecticut and studied sculpture at Columbia University. Her work is inspired by living close to nature in Vermont. With a Registered Nurse background, her anatomical knowledge informs her figurative work.

Elaine’s art has been exhibited in over one hundred fifty National and International exhibitions as well as museums and regional solo shows. Her bronzes are in public and private collections in U.S., Canada and in the private collection of the former King of Saudi Arabia. Ms. Witten created an outdoor lion head fountain for the Village of Old Bennington, Vermont, as well as a dove fountain for St Mary’s Medical Foundation, Langhorn, Pennsylvania. Several of her sculptures are in the permanent collection of Dorset Public Library, Dorset, Vermont, and in corporate collections in Vermont and Alaska. In 2013, she became a purveyor of sculpture to the U.S. State Department for use as Presidential gifts by President Obama.

In New York City, her sculptures have been exhibited at Park Avenue Gallery as part of several National Sculpture Society exhibitions, the National Arts Club, Salmagundi Art Club and Sylvia and Po Kim Gallery. Ms. Witten is an elected member of the National Society of Women Artists.

Elaine has taught sculpture for twenty years at Southern Vermont Arts Center, Manchester, Vermont. She is a past Trustee of Vermont College of Fine Arts, Montpelier, Vermont. She is represented by galleries in Vermont, New York, Florida and Maine.

Artist Statement

Beautiful form, creative use of negative space and illusion of movement are hallmarks of my bronze sculptures. Working in contemporary realism and with timeless subject matter, I frequently simplify shapes and sometimes idealize form to achieve my artistic intent. My goal is to interpret beauty for myself and all who view my creation, as I strive to communicate through sculpture the essence, even the soul, of living forms.

My body of work includes figurative, animal, birds and “antique” musical instruments, which I frequently mount on indigenous stone bases. I cast my bronzes using the multi-step ancient lost wax method, which begins with constructing the original in clay over an armature, progressing to wax, and ultimately casting into bronze. Molds are made between each stage.

My roots of inspiration are my lifelong love of nature, art and music. I live close to nature in rural Vermont providing exposure to such living subject matter as horses, llamas, goats, moose, birds, deer, fox, and turkeys. I draw upon my accrued knowledge of human anatomy gained as a R.N. to enhance my figurative work. I was raised in a family that both valued art and played classical music. Thus, I speak from my inner voice, reflecting my past and communicating through sculpture, our human connectedness with all living creatures.

Artist Biography

Andrea Hellman, Ed.D., is an associate professor in English at Missouri State University. She is acclaimed for her TESOL publications and directs Show Me Multiliteracy (multiliteracy.net), a National Professional Development grant project.

As a prolific fine artist, Andrea's digital paintings have garnered accolades, including Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards from the J. Mane Gallery, Artist-of-the-Month and Bronze Awards from the Camelback Gallery, a Second Place Award from the Ten Moir Gallery, Talent Prize Awards from Teravarna, and many more.

Her art is published in journals like Passengers Journal, Beyond Words Literary Magazine, and Hayden Ferry's Review (Issue 72, Spring/Summer 2023). She is a member of the Fresh Gallery in Springfield, Missouri, USA.

Artist Statement

My artistic adventures began in Hungary, where a variety of interests led me to the world of art, languages, and teaching. I immersed myself in the visual arts alongside my late husband, master painter-printmaker Tom Lewis. I honed my skills at the Worcester Art Museum School under the mentorship of renowned artists such as Sally Bishop and Ella Delyanis.

My current projects are vibrant experiments in color, shape, light, and dynamic compositions, all inspired by my image library and texture brush collection. Each piece has a curious spirit: what if Kandinsky reimagined this scene? What if a dancer's entire movement became one image? What if this scene was transformed into a silk scarf? What if I could perch on the tops of trees with the birds? These wonderings result in whimsical visuals.

Now, in the picturesque Ozarks, I draw inspiration from the thriving arts community and the natural wonder that surrounds me. Motivated by fellow artists, actors, poets, and dancers, I seek to capture fleeting moments of pleasure. My digital brushwork expresses warmth and connectedness, inviting viewers to explore the present and wonder alongside me.

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 are featured in individual month-long solo art exhibitions. 

Below are Michael’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 25 of his landscape paintings. We hope that you will take the time to read Michael’s information and to take a look at his art.

Artist Biography

Michael Gault has known he wanted to be an artist from the age of seven. While other boys were out playing sports, he was taking art courses focused on learning to draw. He has experimented with many visual art forms and is adept with most of them, but oil painting is his calling. He is a classically trained Colorado Artist with two studio degrees, a BFA in from the Kansas City Art Institute and an MA in Fine Art from the University of Missouri in Kansas City.

The creative process excites Michael. He enjoys any activity that allows him to utilize the left side of his brain and his imagination. Spatial orientation and visualization allow his inventive nature to construct serenity and drama in his mind, and his use of essential painting techniques transfer those mind-moments into his landscapes.

Gault has an extensive exhibition history throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Missouri, Kansas and California and has won many awards in juried events and regional competitions, throughout the years. Over 125 of his paintings are featured in The Arrabelle at Vail Square, a luxury hotel & spa in Vail, CO. He has taught college art and graphic designs course in three states as well as workshops and seminars on painting, drawing, printmaking and building a portfolio. He has a YouTube channel that is presented from his studio with practical and professional information for artists early in their creative journeys.

Artist Statement

The Artist Statement is intended to express my interest and love of art, for both the process as well as the challenge. I love the creative process, whether it is painting representational landscapes or plein‐air works or creating free‐ association non‐representational paintings, it is all about the process.

I know that the artist process of problem solving and self‐discovery is always evolutionary and compelling. I believe all creative endeavors are life‐affirming expressions of the human experience. I have been in my artistic journey for 50 years now, and I am as excited and passionate about art today as I was at the beginning of my journey. The evolutionary aspects of painting contribute to my individual growth fueling my creative fire.

The process of painting is physically fulfilling – the way the paint feels when it is being applied and the gestural quality of painting is unlimited. I believe creativity should be shared not only through commercial patronage, also with the sharing of this creative experience and the process of art making. I believe that it is vital for individual artists to gather and share ideas and to discuss problems. I learn whether I am the student or the teacher. And I believe that the creative experience isn’t fulfilled until a spectator views the painting and is able to interact with it.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Fania Greenwood 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.

Fania is an award-winning artist based in North Carolina, USA. She was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 26th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Fania’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to hundreds of 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 Fania’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 artworks that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Fania Greenwood was born in Lyon, France, post-World War II. While growing up in Lyon her passion for art began at a young age as she studied fashion design and pattern making as well as French Cooking. She soaked up as much of the French culture as she could and brought it with her when she moved to the United States in the 1970’s.

After traveling for her first several years in the US, Fania studied Color and Design and Sculpture at Idaho State University before settling in Charlotte, NC in the 1980’s with her husband and three children. She studied Graphic Design and Photography while in Charlotte and worked in those fields for nearly 30 years while raising her children.

Fania’s inspirations rose from the French Post Impressionism, Cubism and Pop Art of the Twentieth Century. She loves graffiti paintings for their intense colors, freedom of patterns, fabrics, textured materials, found objects and printed materials.

Graffiti is often associated with vandalism but has proven to be much more and has slowly invaded contemporary culture. It plays an important role in the world of Art, Design and Fashion and is widely used on all kinds of merchandise as well – apparel, fashion accessories, culinary accessories, gift wrappers, boxes, cartons, etc…

All of these loves are very prevalent in her vibrant and colorful collages.

Artist Statement

A French native, my inspirations rose from the French Post Impressionism, Cubism and Pop Art of the Twentieth Century. From fashion design, sewing, pattern design to graphic design and the influence of a long list of contemporary artists and designers, I am now so happy that I am able to put everything on canvas. 5 years ago after retirement, I started painting but my work has been inspired by my many experiences from the last 60 years: Fashion Design, Pattern design, Graphic Design and Photography.

At first it was difficult to describe my paintings as I never really tried to find work this way. As a graphic designer, the portfolio talks for itself, and I did have a very long and interesting career. Now I know that my inspirations come from patterns, shapes, bright colors, recycled materials, and printed images from magazines and from my photographs taken in many countries over the years. My new work also includes more stitched fabrics on canvas complimented by color and designs.

I am very inspired by Yayoi Kusama who is in her nineties and still produces wonderful work. She taught me that it is never too late to express yourself in painting.

After the opening of this Artist Showcase, it was brought to our attention that the artworks submitted were not the work of the artist.

We investigated the matter and determined that the artist did, in fact, submit work that was not her own. It was the work of several different artists and was deliberately submitted deceptively.

Therefore we have removed this Artist Showcase from the Light Space Time website.

We work very hard to do our due diligence when jurying work that is submitted to all of our art competitions and accepted into all of our art exhibitions. However, we work on the honor system. Due to the time constraints of running a website that hosts as many competitions/exhibitions as we do each year, it is simply not possible to independently verify each individual artwork that is submitted. Therefore, we have to assume artists are being honest and honorable when they submit artwork to our competitions.

Regardless, at the bottom of every one of our entry forms, before artists can complete their entry, they must click a box affirming that the work they are submitting is their own and they own the copyright to the work. We require this to enter all of our art competitions on both the LST website and its parent company, Fusion Art's website.

Here is the verbiage on the entry forms:

I Own the Copyrights to These Image(s) and I am authorized to upload them to this art competition. Also, I have Read, Understand and Agree to all of the Rules, the Terms of Service & the Privacy Policy to this Art Competition and to LIGHTSPACETIME.ART. I agree that by entering this art competition I am "opting in" to Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery's email list. I also agree that I understand that entry fees are NOT refundable under any circumstances, including if my artwork is not selected for inclusion in the exhibition. If I do not agree to these terms, I will not submit my artwork for consideration.

We, at Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery and Fusion Art, take copyright infringement and stealing the work of other artists very seriously. Under NO circumstances do we allow stolen or copyright infringed artwork on our websites. Any time a question arises regarding copyright, we immediately take action and investigate. Then we take the appropriate action and remove any and all work in question from the website. We will continue to do so as protecting artists and their work is our most important mission.

Thank you and, as always, please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Ferenc’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to hundreds of 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 Ferenc’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 artworks that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Ferenc Csurgai is a sculptor and painter, a graduate of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts (1984). His work is a testament to innovation, marked by an unconventional medium choice: concrete. This fascination has redefined my artistic identity, challenging the perception of concrete as merely rigid and heavy, and transforming it into ethereal, light, and transparent creations.

Ferenc’s choice of reinforced concrete is more than a medium; it's a canvas for scientific and artistic experimentation. Throughout his explorations, he developed a unique weather-resistant concrete composite, a blend of art and innovation, which has been recognized with Hungarian and European patents. This groundbreaking material not only enhances the longevity of his artwork but also holds potential applications in the construction industry.

2023 was a landmark year for exhibitions. Ferenc participated in group shows like 'Faces of Concrete 8.0 Industrial Silence' at Nick Gallery, Pécs, 'Occupation of Space' at the VI. Sculpture Biennale, MANK Gallery, Szentendre, and 'Osas Plus No.2' at Vasarely Museum, Budapest. A significant highlight was his solo exhibition 'Concrete²'. His artistic philosophy centers on the paradox of using robust concrete to create delicate, translucent forms. This not only defies conventional views of the material but also symbolizes art's transformative power. Ferenc’s vision is to continue pushing the boundaries of material and form, creating art that resonates with both aesthetic beauty and functional innovation.

Artist Statement

In the realm of art, I find myself drawn to the exploration of the balance between the tangible and the intangible. My work is a journey through geometric-organic structures, where I seek to understand and represent the intricate dance between materiality and spirituality.

Why I Create: My art is born from a deep curiosity about the world and our place within it. It's an exploration of my favorite material, inspired by ancient cultures and the practice of introspective contemplation. This journey is not just about external observations but a profound introspection, encompassing all that I experience and know.

How I Create: My process is experimentation with concrete, an unusual, resistant, hard and heavy material that I bend the force to express organic, geometric forms. The techniques I employ are not just about crafting art but about refining finding the boundaries of material.

What My Art Means to Me: My creations are not just objects of beauty but symbols of my inner transformations and realizations. Each piece is a step towards understanding myself and the world around me in its most authentic form.

Conciseness and Clarity: I believe in the power of simplicity. My art is a silent conversation with the viewer, an invitation to explore the depths of human experience without the need for elaborate words or explanations. It's an open-ended dialogue, where what I see in my creations might differ from what others perceive, and that's the beauty of it.

Ferenc’s art can be viewed on his website.

Artist Biography

Jai Keller is primarily a self-taught abstract painter. She studied with Nicholas Wilton for two years. Jai's main teachers have been the natural world and the mysteries of life and death. After studying ceramics and sculpture, Jai entered the world of abstract painting during a serious illness. It was during a moment of prayer to paint large paintings from the Source, that the paintings began to flow and teach Jai how to heal. Art became the medicine for healing and transformation.

After the sudden passing of Jai Keller's twin last year, Jai created this series "to finding her sister". These paintings transport to sacred temples of light and unknown worlds and realms. The artist is the creator and the created. Jai is the one who grieves and is held by the light. This series is a tribute to her sister. Before each act of art making, Jai makes an invocation to honor all of life and to serve all life.

Below are Robert’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 20 of his photographs.  We hope that you will take the time to read Robert’s information and to take a look at his beautiful “Life Along the Amazon” photography series.

Artist Biography

Robert first experience in photography was when he was offered the opportunity to be mentored in basics of film photography and darkroom techniques including such archival techniques as wet plate photography and large format film photography. He carried this experience into his academic career as a biologist using photography in his teaching and research where he used photo and electron-microscopy, and image analysis to study genetics.

Upon retirement Robert moved to digital photography and the digital darkroom and turned his focus to nature and street photography; areas in which he directs his viewer to see the relationship of the arts and sciences and where he uses the digital darkroom to emulate archival techniques of film photography such as the orotype developed by Edward Curtis.

Robert views the photograph as his “novel” to be read by the imagination of the viewer and thus he crafts the photograph for this purpose. He is interested in showing how cultures may differ but are much the same. His work has been exhibited in physical and on-line galleries via competitions and in solo exhibits at St. Louis Artist Guild, Bradley University, at EuroBiotech Conference in Poznan, Poland, among others He has been in curated exhibits and was awarded 3rd place in the 2022 Fall Exhibition at the International Photographic Hall of Fame and Museum. He is a featured artist at Camelback Galleries and has been Artist of the month in Gallery Ring on-line gallery.

Artist Statement

The photograph must tell a story, not just the story seen by the photographer, but the story read through the imagination of the viewer, it is a pictorial novel. It has a purpose and like a book it becomes a storage place of ideas and events and a teaching tool. In many years as a biologist, using photography as a research and teaching tool, I realized that there is a close relationship between science and the arts.

Clearly photography can be used to teach this relationship. While the relationship is easily captured in nature photography it also can be found in human societal and cultural differences. Thus, one of my goals is to use photography to show that even though cultures may differ they also are much the same and that we should see this sameness as we address worldly issues. I try to show this through photography of indigenous peoples in their native culture, involved in their daily tasks of living.

The photographic technique used by Edward Curtis and contemporary photographers to capture the story and history of native Americans as they were driven from their lands onto reservations in the late 1800’s has my attention. This method of the orotype or gold type photograph brings the viewer’s eye to the main element of the photograph while subduing the background and opens the imagination to his or her reading of the story being told.

Artist Biography

In a world where skill and creativity converged, there exists a remarkable individual whose journey from being the world's strongest juggler to a visionary creative photographer has left an indelible mark on both entertainment and artistic communities.

Meet Bob Whitcomb, a name synonymous with unparalleled strength and dexterity. From a young age, Bob exhibited an extraordinary talent for juggling, dazzling audiences around the globe with gravity-defying feats. The world watched in awe as he effortlessly juggled massive weights, earning the title of the "Strongest Juggler on Earth." Yet, beneath the brawny exterior lay a heart yearning for a different form of expression. Bob’s fascination with the interplay of light and reflection led to a transformative moment. It was the discovery of mirrors that unlocked the doors to a new dimension of creativity.

Transitioning from juggling to photography might have seemed inconceivable, but Bobs dedication knew no bounds. He delved into the world of photography, experimenting tirelessly with mirrors to capture ethereal and surreal compositions. These photographs were a manifestation of their deep connection with the physical and metaphysical, reflecting an inner strength that went beyond the physical prowess of his juggling days.

Today, Bob Whitcomb is celebrated not only as the world's strongest juggler but also as a visionary creative photographer who has pushed the boundaries of what is possible. His journey is a testament to the transformative power of passion and the boundless potential of human creativity.

Artist Statement

In a world increasingly dominated by digital manipulation, my photography seeks to capture the essence of reality through the tactile and tangible elements of mirrors and lens balls. In an era where Photoshop and post-processing have become the norm, I am committed to the purity of the unaltered image.

Mirrors have long been objects of fascination, offering glimpses into alternate perspectives and hidden angles. By incorporating mirrors into my photographic compositions, I invite viewers to explore new dimensions within familiar scenes. The reflective surfaces become a canvas for reality, distorting and reshaping the world around us, while simultaneously revealing aspects often unnoticed. This play with reflections encourages viewers to reconsider their surroundings and question the boundaries of perception.

Lens balls, on the other hand, are like crystal orbs that capture a unique view of the world. These glass spheres bend and refract light, creating mesmerizing distortions and a dreamlike quality to the images they produce. Unlike digital filters or post-processing techniques, lens balls allow me to manipulate light and color at the moment of capture, infusing a sense of magic and wonder into the scene.

By eschewing digital manipulation, I invite viewers to engage with my photographs on a visceral level, connecting with the authenticity of the moment. In a time when the line between reality and artifice is increasingly blurred. Mirrors and lens balls are not just tools; they are windows into the extraordinary within the ordinary, and my photography aims to reflect this transformative power.

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

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

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

Artist Biography

Tom is a self-taught artist, who began painting while recovering from a mountain biking accident that left him in a coma. He began with the Bob Ross technique, but came to broaden his technique to suit his desire for different subject matter. His style has been described by one gallerist as "stylized realism". Tom's work has won several awards, and he has had two individual shows of his work - both featuring his railroad paintings.

Artist Statement

Art is an attempt to express the inexpressible, and at its best provokes a sense of wonder, whether through its technique, composition, subject matter, use of color, or detail. All art is a reflection of choices made by the artist – both submissions and omissions – and the best art is the expression of a personal truth, describing the world the artist promotes. As Bob Dylan said, “Art is the perpetual motion of illusion. The highest purpose of art is to inspire. What else can you do? What else can you do for anyone but inspire them.”

I have blended my passion for art with my lifelong love of trains. Oil is my primary medium as much of my initial art instruction was from TV art shows on PBS. The slower drying times also compels me to be more deliberate, giving me the time to assess a work more thoroughly as it progresses.

My focus on trains stems from the fact that both of my grandfathers worked for (competing) railroads in Chicago, and I grew up in his grandparents’ house along the tracks of the Baltimore & Ohio Chicago Terminal Railroad, for which my grandfather worked. Railroads also offer the opportunity to include history, diverse landscapes and cityscapes, and bold colors into my works.

She participated at the Pelham Art Festival and an exhibition at Marché Bon Secours, Montreal (Plaisirs d'artistes).

Artist Statement

My interest in the arts has always been present in various forms: drawing, painting, photography but today I realize my artistic ambitions: paint my subjects realistically, in oil paint. Painting is for me a testimony to nature that I just love. It is my main source of inspiration: landscapes, flowers and first and foremost, birds and animals.

My process begins with observing birds and wildlife in their environment. Also, visits to animal parks and sanctuaries enables me to take many pictures of various interesting species. Following my observations and research, the work takes shape several months in advance in my head. Afterwards, creation is made on canvas, closest to reality, while going into the different steps related to oil painting: layer's superposition and drying time.

Work is from background to foreground - from general to specific, striving to create something that is captivating and enjoyable to watch. The composition is edited ad manipulated until satisfaction and the main objective is to create a painting that has a sense of depth. Each painting is an opportunity for me to play with colors, lights and shadows in order to reflect this magic that only painting can manage to create.

Nic’s work can be viewed on her website.
