Artist Biography

David Wigner became interested in art when he was in high school, and worked primarily with watercolors. His mother influenced him while growing up, as she enjoyed creating watercolor art, and saw that he had natural ability towards drawing. So she gave David some of her materials and shared her techniques with him.

Through college at Grand Valley State, David took several art courses, but finished with a degree in philosophy. This made sense because he is a philosopher. He also worked in a mixed media format of combining elements into his works to develop his own style as a means of finding out what it was in him that he was trying to bring about in his art.  After college, David joined The Grand Valley Artists Association. This helped him tremendously, meeting new artists and working with some of them.

David’s latest passion as an artist has been creating abstract pour paintings. This format always challenges his strong sense of color and finding balance in his work. Pour painting keeps him sane. Like life, this whole process is inspiring David all the time. His son helped him build his website to help him share his work.

Artist Statement

There's something about pour painting that energizes me and satisfies my mind & soul. If I'm feeling upset with life, I can express that emotion in my work. When I'm feeling content, my work takes on that emotion too, having a calmer look and feel.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Eduin Fraga 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.

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

Eduin’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 his artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

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

Artist Biography

Eduin Fraga was born in Havana, Cuba in 1974. He began painting over twenty years ago, blending newspaper collage into his work in order to capture dynamic fragments of society within the piece. Fraga considers his technique of painting and newspaper collage to be a unique mechanism through which to add complexity and richness to the work while simultaneously transforming the work into a form of historical register of social experience. Fraga formally studied painting and drawing at the Experimental Center of Visual Arts in Havana, Cuba, and graduated in 2010. Currently, he divides his time between Cuba and the United States.

Artist Statement

I'm continually striving to represent the complex and subtle realities of daily experience in Cuba and now in the U.S. My work focuses on social themes such as the Special Period in Cuba, struggles of workers to survive on their pensions, loss and separation in families whose members have emigrated to other countries, and tensions around public services such as transportation and sanitation.

In my work I use collage mixed with oil, acrylic, charcoal and other media. I identify this form of mixed media as “collage painting“. It is a unique form of art that includes article excerpts and images from various Cuban and American newspapers on canvas or cardboard as a means of capturing dynamic fragments of the societies in which I live. Through this approach, I intend not only to show objective images of the realities or daily lives of both countries but also to create within each painting an historical register of past events, processes, and predetermining factors that have shaped society today.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Jeanne Rhea 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.

Jeanne is an award-winning mixed media artist based in North Carolina. Jeanne was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 13th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

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

 

Artist Biography

Jeanne Rhea has been involved in the arts throughout her life, and was a founding member of an arts cooperative in Anchorage, AK. She is the founder of the Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild now in its eighteenth year.

Jeanne is inspired by nature, colors, patterns, fractals, photomicrography, life experiences, and the creative process itself. Using a variety of inks, she creates effects that are reminiscent of microorganisms, crystalline structures, mudflats, terraced earth, the cosmos, sea life, flowers, surrealistic landscapes, and more. These patterns and designs are dependent on many factors including the humidity, the temperature, the chemical and physical makeup of the inks, the viscosity of the inks, and the porosity of the substrate. Working wet on wet, in many ways, art meets science.

Jeanne is creating a new line of geometric paintings. Her ink paintings almost feel as if there is a loss of control with the paints and inks while her geometric paintings are the opposite. Every single mark, color, element is controlled to the point that it looks as if someone had to have made them with a computer and printed them out. They are Kandinsky-esque, but unlike his paintings, they are done in layers, and are 3D.

No prints are made of her paintings. They have a multi-dimensional quality. They capture the imagination and command attention with their unique patterns, designs, and vibrancy. After concentrating on commissioned work for the past five years, she is pursuing additional gallery representation and featured artist opportunities.

Jeanne Rhea’s work can be found in several countries and in almost every state in the US.

Artist Statement

I approach my art like a kid in a candy store. My studio is where techniques are discovered, experiments are performed, problems are solved, art is shared, friends are made, and where self-discovery and magic happen. One could say my studio is part science lab, theater, sanctuary, therapist’s office, classroom, dance and music hall, her playground, and kingdom. The only thing my studio is not is a factory. I create a lot of art, but it is all unique and cannot be reproduced. Even with my wide range of art techniques, my signature style is obvious with each series that I create.

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 is the sixth “Solo Art Series” Art Competition the gallery has conducted.

Below is Francesca’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 25 pieces of her mixed media creations.  We hope that you will take the time to read Francesca’s information and to take a look at her creative and fascinating mixed media art.

Artist Biography:

In her early life Francesca challenged herself by focusing on things that did not come naturally to her (e.g. going into Law after Classics). Yet, she tried for years to placate her internal restlessness by living in different countries and cultures (Pordenone, Padua, Denver, London, Paris, New York...); When she reached 40, with the responsibility of a mother, she settled between London and Trieste and found her outlet in what she liked and did best, namely using her hands to create.

Art exhibitions, painting and modelling clay were regular hobbies which never satiated her inherent creative nature. Finally one day, she entered the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli, in Spilimbergo: a whole new world of WONDERS opened up.

She wanted to learn how to do it properly. She found a delightful place in London, Southbank Mosaics, where she did a first Award course and a Level 2 Certificate - a place which she still regularly and enthusiastically attends twice a week. She also attends various courses per year at Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli, Spilimbergo (Roman, Bizantine and Modern mosaic) and elsewhere.

Her philosophy is always to learn as much as possible, never to take anything for granted, and then - to make it hers! 

Artist Statement:

Francesca’s mission is to make Mosaic ROCK. She wants to show it to the world as an art which can be incredibly rich… every material has at least one fascinating feature about it: the very nature of its texture and just the subtle tilt of a tile allow for different colours, reflections and shades depending on the angle of sight. Chances are that no two viewers will see it the same way at the same time.

Torn between optimism and surrender, Francesca is haunted by the idea of mankind’s imminent self-destruction. Yet, she still believes in a future for humanity of resourceful innovation through recycling and upcycling. She is fascinated by the colours and textures of both artificial and natural elements, which she enthusiastically hunts for in everyday life and restlessly plays with in new combinations, pairing and contrasting noble material with rubbish. Her aim is to prove their reciprocal need, how rubbish is a relative definition and how it can be turned into something useful, fun and even beautiful.

To Francesca, art has the same importance as philosophy: its ultimate purpose is to provoke something in the viewer of its time. As an artist, she feels a compelling urge to convey a message to the viewer, whether a thought or a pure emotion, as strongly as her technical and creative capabilities will allow.

Below is Keith’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 15 pieces of his mixed media creations.  We hope that you will take the time to read Keith’s information and to take a look at his creative and fascinating sculptor art.

Artist Biography:

Keith Plummer is a Maine sculptor working primarily with metal and bone. His mixed media creations combine the precision of metallurgy with an inventive transformation of bone into human form.

His art won an Award of Excellence in the Manhattan Arts International “New Beginnings” exhibition, 2016-2017, curated by Renée Phillips, who has described his art as “powerful and compelling”. He also won Third Place in the “Art of Humanity” art contest. His exhibitions include those at: Monmouth Museum, Lincroft, New Jersey; Abrazo Interno Gallery, New York, New York; and South Shore Art Center, Cohasset, Massachusetts; among others.

He has been included in Art Scope Magazine, The Woven Tale Press and Exquisite Arts Magazine.

Artist Statement:

I believe birth is a pathway to eternity. Bones remain the sole witness of a mortal existence and provide a narrative of our earthly life. My work shows that death is not morbid, but simply the end of growth; I strive to resurrect forgotten spirits and recover stories of those deceased. In my sculptures, bones have a voice and can speak for themselves.

I am as careful as I can be when working with natural material. Bones in particular are intricate and fragile, so I attempt stabilize and preserve them with little alteration. When working with metal, I use magnification to add as much detail as possible, showing depth from a distance. I use a variety of tools such as Dremels, dental tools, and bone saws. Some tools I’ve made myself, and some I’ve modified.

One day, on a visit to The Peary Macmillan Arctic Museum at Bowdoin College, I saw a display of Inuit sculpture. I was moved to know I was not alone in my fascination with this beautiful medium. Seeing the way Intuits honored the spirit world with the same medium confirmed what I had discovered for myself. It was like I’d been given divine permission to push forward with my vision. I hope to educate my audience about the elegance of bones and present them as a beautiful and renewable medium with sacred significance.

“Birth is a pathway to death. Bones remain sole witness of existence. My work honors death and celebrates life. I long to resurrect forgotten spirits and recover stories of those deceased. In my sculptures, bones have a voice; they can now forever speak for themselves”.

Below is Amadea’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 20 pieces of her mixed media art.  We hope that you will take the time to read Amadea’s information and to take a look at her fascinating large format art.

Artist Biography:

Amadea is a formally trained expressionist painter whose artistic exploration is captured in large scale. Her work has been shown in numerous exhibits both nationally and internationally, and six of her paintings grace the walls of Halle Berry’s home. Amadea’s commissioned artwork has also been featured in television, films and commercials.

Amadea’s work is influenced by the years she spent as a child living Kenya, East Africa, where she was free to express herself as she played and danced in a playground of vast fields. She was shaped by the vivid colors and pure natural elements that surrounded her; pink flamingos, mud hut villages, the beautiful horses she rode and the sweet sugar cane she and her friends would find and chew on as they walked to school. The adventure, freedom and spirit of her time spent in Kenya are consistently conveyed in the rich colors and textures of her art.

However, it wasn’t until Amadea was studying at Yale University that she discovered her true passion for art: she found herself engrossed in a retrospective of Claude Monet’s water lilies at the Museum of Modern Art in New York during her summer break before her senior year of college. “I was transported by the vast expanses of color -- the abstract forms swirling and unfolding,” Amadea explains. “The paintings connected me to my childhood and invited me to play, dance and explore.”

From this point forward she started painting and began taking classes in drawing, painting, and sculpture during her remaining time at Yale. Upon graduating from Yale with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts, Amadea went on to further develop as an artist by training at The New York Studio School in drawing and painting and was tutored by figurative expressionist painter George McNeil. After graduating from The New York Studio School, Amadea was dedicated to painting daily in her studio and spent 11 years in New York nurturing her craft.

To regain a sense of openness and connectedness to nature, Amadea moved to Los Angeles 25 years ago. She bought her home and created her dream studio. When you peek inside her studio in the afternoons, you can see Amadea’s body moving purposefully and joyfully as she works on her installation-size canvases. When she begins a painting she is often unsure of where and how it will end. The painting unfolds and reveals itself in a process that Amadea finds endlessly fascinating and rewarding. It is this exhilarating journey that is thus captured on her copious canvas. “As a painter I get to feel again and again the sense of expansiveness, spontaneity and endless possibilities that I knew as a child on the Serengeti Plains under the African sky,” says Amadea.

Amadea’s creativity doesn’t stop at the art she creates: she’s also creative in the way that she sells it. She’s listed her home as a shooting location for film and TV, which recently led to a national magazine shoot at her studio.

Amadea is living her dream as an artist residing in Southern California. When she is not painting she enjoys surfing, dancing and traveling, finding inspiration in everything and everyone she meets.

Artist Statement:

I grew up in Africa riding horses in the bush, eating sugar cane by the side of the road and playing dress-up with banana leaves. I experienced a sense of freedom and abandon, and an immediate connection to the tactile, physical, and non-rational worlds.  Now, as an adult, my paintings reconnect me to that awakened child of Africa.

I paint as an explorer going on a journey. I disappear into the unknown and dig for what will unravel and reveal itself: new images, new relationships, new ways of moving paint. Scraping, scratching, wiping, adding, subtracting.  Inviting drips, stains, layering, accidents. 

I am a deeply physical person. I love movement. In addition to painting, I run, surf, and dance. I paint on a large scale so I can feel my body moving across a big field. I crave the space for spontaneous gestures, for paint to drip and colors to collide. 

I search for the image, and its proper place in the world around it.  I allow words and images to appear, disappear, get buried, and resurface. A pair of high heeled shoes, an hour glass, a hot air balloon. Two horses intertwined in a huge white field. 

Sometimes this process happens magically, as if by accident.  Sometimes it takes months of moving, playing, changing and editing before the total rhythm of the painting finds the resonance I seek, the moment of yes.  

This is not an intellectual pursuit.  I paint because I love the tactile, sensual aspects: tearing, ripping, paper, paint, collage, plaster, glue. Pie tins filled with cerulean, magenta, and indigo. Words scrawled in black ink across a torn page.

I love taking the irrational world of my emotions, hopes, fears, dreams, desires and idiosyncrasies and sculpting and re-arranging them in myriad ways until order is found. 

I thrive making order out of chaos.  And paradoxically in this process my mind becomes still. I open myself up to something much bigger than myself.  Decisions make themselves.  Time melts away and I journey into an expansive universe, as wide as the Serengeti Plains. I enter a world of space and matter, building up my canvases with color and texture, recapturing the freedom and movement of my African childhood.

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

Debra Rushfeldt lives in British Columbia, Canada, where she is an award-winning assemblage artist.  Debra will be promoted by the gallery with an extensive public relations campaign, as well through the gallery’s broad social media network.  Also, part of her award package is that she is now featured as an Artsy.net Light Space & Time promoted artist. In addition, she will 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 is the fifth “Solo Art Series” Art Competition the gallery has conducted.

Below is Debra’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 25 pieces of her art.  We hope that you will take the time to read Debra’s information and to take a look at her fascinating assemblage art.

Artist Biography:

Debra Rushfeldt is a Calgary born artist who received her art education at the Alberta College of Art and Design, and Banff Center, as well as summer studies with Parson's School of Art and Design in Japan.

She has been exhibiting locally and nationally, teaching mixed media assemblage workshops, and volunteering with art organizations since the 1980's.

In 2010 Debra was granted a Major Project Award from Columbia Basin Trust to develop a series of artworks that would highlight life in the West Kootenays, B.C. thus beginning her interest in drawing with charcoal.

Debra's mixed media assemblage work is subjective and informed by her found object collection and her attraction to rich and sensual surfaces. Her realism based charcoal drawings are inspired by her emotional connection to her surroundings.

All her painted and drawn artworks are linked by an interest in the found object, and she strives to transform the ordinary and discarded into images that speak to the viewer. She is represented in numerous private and corporate collections throughout Canada.

Currently, she resides in the small mountain village of Nakusp B.C. where she owns and operates Debra Rushfeldt Studio Gallery, and finds inspiration every day in the pristine beauty of the area.

Artist Statement:

Assemblage as an art form is the art of metaphor, of juxtaposition, of setting one thing beside another without obvious connection, and I enjoy exploring this lyrical and poetic visual world. My "Construction Series" is a synthesis of color texture, and materials combined in an imaginative manner that reflects my interest in primitive forms and my attraction to rich and sensual surfaces.

These works are not based on intellectual concepts but rather flow from a desire to create an art form with spirit. Some works are quiet and reflective, others are whimsical, but all are expressions of transformation.

My environment and activities in my life show up as part of the assemblages, and the finished work reflect a time and place for me. Studio work involves shifting and editing of materials, and manipulation of painted surfaces until the formal concerns of balance and unity are satisfactory to me. The completed works invite the viewer to make connections between seemingly unrelated materials and objects to arrive at their own understanding of the piece.

A lifelong interest in textiles and the decorative arts has also informed this series, as well as past travel experiences.
