Kelley finds her inspiration in the ever-changing natural beauty and moods of her surroundings. When creating her mixed media artwork, she prefers using a lot of layering to add depth and texture. Kelley explores a variety of combinations with creative techniques. At times, she will use color manipulation, acrylics and inks, overlays, and textures along with recycled materials, and solvents. By using these types of various elements of mixed media, she feels they add a kaleidoscope of colors to her photographed images and artwork.

As an artist, she believes one of the most exciting elements of mixed media art, is that it is a pioneering and continuously evolving form of art. The materials used in the creative process have endless possibilities, allowing for great flexibility and freedom in creating art. Thus, offering a more interesting experience for art enthusiasts.

Artist Statement

Getting outside is good for the soul, it reminds us to slow down and reconnect with nature. The inspiration for my artwork and photography always comes back to the wonders of the ever-changing natural beauty around us. The objective of my work is to communicate a feeling of appreciation and to pay tribute to the natural world. It's about capturing and preserving that moment in nature.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Patrick Egger has been selected as one of the four winning artists of the gallery’s recent 24th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition.  Patrick will now have a month-long solo art exhibition and he will be featured on the gallery’s front page, on the Gallery’s YouTube Channel, as well as in the “Solo Art Series” Archive.

Patrick is an international award-winning self-taught artist based in Switzerland. He 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 hundreds of 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 Light Space & Time’s broad social media network.

Patrick’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 24th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

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

Artist Biography

Self-taught painter, Patrick Egger was born in La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland in 1957.

First a forest engineer and then a teacher, it was only at the dawn of his sixties, settled in La Creusaz above Les Marécottes that painting imposed itself on him.

After experimenting with charcoal and then pastel, he finally turned to acrylic paint, which lends itself well to his very intuitive practice of working.

He paints landscapes in a figurative way, up to hyperrealism. Through his works, we perceive a persistent quest for sensations linked to the beauty of the place. Through opposing atmospheres, he likes to bring together, for example, the peacefulness of the mountain and the harshness of the alpine setting.

Patrick’s art seems both faithful to the visible and in harmony with a feeling that he seeks to magnify. His style often focuses on indirect light which gives the pattern to a particular climate. 

Artist Statement

I paint in a figurative way, often touching hyperrealism, which allows me to accurately, in a detailed way, to replicate a subject.

When I paint a landscape, from a photo, I am intent on creating a strict reproduction, but occasionally changing a detail. For example, I will make a change in the vegetation or the light on the subject with its linked shadows to the atmospheric conditions, with a view to a search, a balance, a breath or an emotion.

What is imagined must remain realistic as far as I am concerned.

However, some works are totally invented. They then represent compositions of different images, more or less precise memories or simply ephemeral impressions. The difficulty no longer lies in the exact reproduction of a photo but that of a virtual image, even a feeling, without knowing the exact result. The method is empirical - the successive layers follow one another and the result is thus refined little by little. The path to the final creation is not always the most direct.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that April Lund 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.

April is an award-winning artist based in Canada. April was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 23rd Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

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

Artist Biography

Born in Saskatchewan, Canada, April spent most of her life as a Calgarian, with forays to Penticton, Edmonton (twice), Halifax and Victoria. Currently retired from the 9 to 5 cycle, she is now thoroughly enjoying the freedom retirement has to offer and embracing the easy lifestyle of the East Kootenay Rockies.

An avid explorer with brush, pencil and clay throughout childhood and her public school years, she entered the University of Calgary’s Fine Arts Program right out of high school. However, the siren's call of a regular paycheck and family that followed soon after, kept her firmly anchored (mainly in the area of law) for the next 35 years. After a second brush with serious illness and a week-long immersion in the finest galleries of London, Edinburgh and Glasgow, April decided it was time to revisit her previous passion and took a course at the Alberta College of Art and Design aptly titled "Painting for the Utterly Intimidated".

Having been fortunate enough to have lived on both of Canada’s beautiful coasts and at the foot of the Rockies, the myriad facets of water and mountains have and will be a recurring theme in her art. Working primarily in acrylic (having the patience of a gnat when it comes to waiting out drying times), April is slowly experimenting with oils. She has also turned her hand to works in wood and mixed media sculpture.

Artist Statement

Carly Clements wrote that the artist's statement is written "to tell someone who I am, what my art is all about and why I created it".

Quite frankly, "who, what and why" are constantly evolving. Every painting forces both left and right brains to shake hands. It is, for me, simultaneously meditative, stimulating, contemplative and surprising. Each painting develops a life of its own. The process of creating a painting is eternally fascinating to me.

For years, I have had a favorite photograph of a seagull perched on a piling with the surf swirling in the background. I have looked at this simple photograph countless times but not until I decided to consider it as a subject for a painting did I notice the tiny chick tucked between the lower pilings. That is what art is about to me - the epiphany of finally "seeing" and the joy of putting my personal twist on what I saw.

April can be reached via her Email.

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

Artist Biography

Heather Coen in an award winning artist based in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Her paintings have been recognized and published by every major art magazine in the United States including, Art of the West, Plein Air Magazine, American Art Collector, Colored Pencil Magazine, Southwest Art and others.  She began her career by apprenticing to two major artists and then, over the coming years, took classes and workshops to hone her skills. Recently, although her career was halted by a tragedy, she has risen from the ashes and began painting with a vengeance.

She belongs to such prestigious national organizations like Oil Painters of America, Women Artists of the West, National Oil and Acrylic Painters as well as a number of local art venues. She currently has work in three different galleries in two different states including Jackson Hole and Cheyenne, Wyoming and Estes Park, Colorado.  

Heather is a landscape, still life and wildlife artist.  Her work comes from her many travels all over South America, Canada and the United States.  They are created over many months by adding many layers of paint or pastel on a canvas or surface.  

Heather believes she is, “Creating a legacy, one original at a time.” 

Artist Statement

Having been born with a paint brush in my hand, my mother survived and passed on many of her artistic skills to me. Apprenticed to three master artists over a six-year period, I launched with advantages. I soon became the President of a local art organization and learned the inner workings of shows, exhibits and keeping a herd of cats going in somewhat the same direction. I was the prize coordinator for the Women Artists of the West 50th Jubilee Show which happened to coincide with the outbreak of COVID. The organization could not hold the National Show and everything had to be coordinated and shipped. It took weeks.

Overcoming adversity is a part of every artist's life. I've found that persistence, ethics and just plain being stubborn helps. I have drawers full with awards and ribbons. I became a Master Signature member of Paint America after winning a number of competitions through their venues. It took me eight years to accumulate enough points.

I also have my Signature designation with Plein Air Artists Colorado and Pastel Society of Colorado. Moving from the mountains of Colorado to the hot, dry desert in Arizona, I found that plein air work helped tremendously in changing my palette and way of thinking. It was not an easy transition.

Artist Biography

Marjorie and Bob Moskowitz created a new persona, (MB Mosk) when they began collaborating, separate from their individual studio practices. These works are a curious hybrid only slightly resembling their own work. The process attempts to create a seamless blending to appear as a single artist has produced the painting. They draw on their shared approach to looking at the peculiar nature of people and the world. Their sense of irony and humor is a vehicle to allude to a deeper meaning below the surface.

Artist Statement

They plan the work together but never paint at the same time. They draw from an ever -growing image bank of photographs shot and collected from different parts of the country. They have always shared a sense of irony and humor.

MB’s website is www.mbmosk.com. You can also see Marjorie’s individual work at www.marjoriemoskowitz.com and Bob’s individual work at www.bobmoskowitz.com.

Artist Biography

Maureen Ravnik was born and raised in Minnesota.  After attending college in Colorado, she stayed and never looked back.  Working and traveling opened her eyes to the wonders of the American west and reawakened childhood tendencies to creatively document her discoveries.  She began making images of the American west in hopes of preserving the history, the culture, and the dreams that shaped the west. Today, Maureen’s time is spent outdoors taking in and capturing the scenery, wildlife, and exploring other methods for interpreting and sharing what she sees and experiences along the way.

Maureen has accomplished many things with her photography including images placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local, national and international juried photography exhibitions, winning placements in monthly club competitions, state park calendars, images selected for use by the City of Littleton, Colorado, and many images selected as editor picks on National Geographic and for publication. Her work has been the subject of several newspapers. She has co-authored 2 books that document the history, beauty and environment of the second largest natural area in the country.  Maureen has also served as a juror for the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Colorado.

Maureen’s goal is to continually look for new ways to challenge herself and express what she feels. That is what inspires her to never reject possibilities in subject matter.

Artist Statement

My techniques are largely self-taught. I am deeply inspired by Ansel Adams and Art Wolfe. My greatest reward comes from developing composites. My work is delivered in an array of styles that arc between passionately abstract and doggedly figurative.
