Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Robert Bolla 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.

Robert is an award-winning artist based in Missouri, USA. He was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 27th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified his photographs to be showcased in this feature.

Robert’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 Robert’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 photographs from his “The World Around Us” series that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Robert’s first experience in photography was when he was offered the opportunity to be mentored in the 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 focused on nature and street photography, areas in which he directs his viewer to see the relationship between the arts and sciences, and where he develops photos in the digital darkroom in monotone using archival techniques of film photography or in color, depending on the purpose of the story told.

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 online galleries via competitions and in solo exhibits at St. Louis Artist Guild, Bradley University, Peoria Artist Guild, at EuroBiotech Poznan, Poland, and Solo Artist at Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery, 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 and Camelback galleries.

Artist Statement

The photograph is, in many ways, a pictorial novel. The photographer does not necessarily write the words, but rather establishes background and character; the imagination of the viewer does the rest. It has a purpose, and like a book, it becomes a storage place for ideas and events and a teaching tool. In my 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 can also 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 are much the same and that we should see this sameness as we address worldly issues. I try to show this through photography of peoples in their native environment, involved in their daily tasks of living.

In my early mentoring in film photography, I was taught using archival techniques, working primarily in monotone. With the evolution of digital photography and the digital darkroom, I realized that street or candid photography better writes the pictorial novel. As such, I try to capture people as they would be and not posed as they might be, and while I still work in monotone, I also work in color, as this talks about the culture and cultural differences, often better showing the setting of the novel.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Iryna Akimova 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.

Iryna is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning artist based in Kiev, Ukraine. She was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 27th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Iryna’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 Iryna’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 artworks from her PEACE AND WAR project that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Iryna Akimova is a contemporary Ukrainian artist who lives and works in Kiev. She graduated from Kharkov State University (Ukraine), where she got her PhD degree. Iryna started her professional artistic career after having vast experience as a University professor, director of an NGO, and parliamentarian. She concentrated her art research on studying the roots of the individuality in the formation of subjective perceptions of the reality.

She is fond of «exercices de style» and experiments. She often presents her expressionistic paintings along with the impressive abstract and surrealistic experiments. She started in painting, and then went into installations, video-animation and performance in order to achieve a multidimensional effect.

She had ten solo exhibitions, and took part in 50+ national and international group exhibitions. She received numerous awards at international art contests. Some of her pictures were successfully sold at Phillips auction in London, and several artworks entered museums and private collections in Ukraine, Germany, Slovakia, and China.

Iryna is a member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine. Five years ago she founded Ukrainian Association of Feminine Research in the Arts (UAFRA) and established an annual Womens’ArtFest to advocate gender equality in the arts.

Artist Statement

The project PEACE AND WAR was started in the spring of 2022 in a small town of Tulchyn in the Vinnytsia region in Ukraine, where Iryna escaped with the family for two weeks from war. A peaceful landscape with a small pond and trees and their reflection in the water is bathed in the blue-yellow-orange color palette of the setting sun.

The author's analysis separates components of the landscape, and then synthetically mixes them into an abstract surrealistic print of a spring evening. Feel the fragile atmosphere of peace, keep it in your heart, and fight for it, when the time comes... The peaceful landscape turns into a war landscape, full of broken lines and fires that remind of cruel and greedy breath of death. The stem of a mystical plant of war fills the entire space with flames, destruction and the putrid smell of decomposition. The same motifs and colors, and different realities and feelings…War changes everything...

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Lâle Gerger 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.

Lâle is an award-winning artist based in Florida, USA. She was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 27th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

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

Artist Biography

Lâle Gerger is artist that utilizes a blend of artistry, empathy, and resilience in her creative journey. From her theatre background to personal challenges, art has been her guiding force. Using primarily acrylics and pen and ink, Lâle delves into life's complexities, inviting viewers to embrace resilience and share their light. Her journey is a testament to the transformative power of art in navigating life's challenges and discovering purpose within adversity.

After earning her theatre degree, Lâle worked professionally in Turkey as both an actress and a faculty member at a conservatory. She fought a 5-year legal battle for the right to adopt as a single woman, reshaping her path and ultimately welcoming her son into her life. Returning to the US, she carved out a career in HR management to provide stability for her child. Amidst personal tragedy with her mother's cancer diagnosis and the onset of the pandemic, she rediscovered solace in art.

Now, her artistic journey has evolved from a hobby to a full-time business, fueled by resilience and a passion for creativity. Lâle’s artwork, spanning diverse mediums and techniques with a focus on acrylics and abstract art, reflects a unique perspective on life's complexities.

Artist Statement

As an artist based in Florida, I create abstract art to express my emotions through color and experimentation with contrasts of dark and light. Color is more important to me than depicting realistic pictures. I love that abstract art allows the viewer, in turn, the freedom to transpose their feelings and experiences into the artwork.

My process begins with choosing a color palette and the message or story I want to convey on the canvas. Once I see these elements come to life, I step away for a day or two and return with pen and ink to add the details that complete the piece.

Although I've had a very fulfilling life, I've faced my share of difficulties, including some challenging health issues. It's also easy to see tragedies all around us. When I paint, I can put all this aside and share the beauty that is truly everywhere. I choose to uplift myself and others through my art, aiming to spread positivity and inspire hope. Through my art, I want to create an emotional connection with the viewer, inviting them to interpret and connect with the artwork in their own unique way.

My series, "Shine Your Light," embodies my vision of spreading hope and compassion through art. Each piece comes with its own message such as "Be the Sun in Someone’s Darkness", how we can all find "Light from Darkness" or even "Sunflower" carries a message of hope since they can grow tall even in adverse conditions.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Linda Boisvert DeStefanis 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.

Artist Biography

Linda's artwork is a vehicle for sharing the inspiration she finds in nature’s fleeting moments of remarkable beauty. Many times Linda finds this while taking a photo drive somewhere to capture that splash of light or the shapes in the shadows or any scene where nature is at its best. ‘Waterscapes’ are Linda's favorite subjects because water, in all its forms, excites and challenges her. She enjoys creating strong, dynamic compositions in her paintings.

Linda loves photography and uses her photographs as references for her paintings. She paints in oils primarily and works in layers in her studio. She enjoys painting on smooth surfaces like linen and continues to experiment on coated aluminum when the subject is right.

From a young age, Linda enjoyed all forms of art and began taking oil painting lessons as a teen. In college her favorite art studies were drawing, photography and printmaking. After college, Linda became a graphic artist and remained in that field for over 30 years. Linda's heart always belonged to her fine art though. She continued to paint and enter shows in between our growing family and work.

Linda has exhibited throughout Connecticut and on Long Island. She is a member of the New Haven Paint and Clay Club, an Elected Artist Member of the Madison and Clinton Art Society’s, and was voted in to become an Elected Artist at the Lyme Art Association. This year, she was also accepted into the prestigious American Artist Professional League as an Elected Artist.

My artwork is a vehicle for sharing the inspiration I find in nature’s fleeting moments of remarkable beauty. Many times I find this while taking a photo drive somewhere to capture that splash of light or the shapes in the shadows or any scene where nature is at its best. ‘Waterscapes’ are what I paint most often because water, in all its forms, excites and challenges me. I enjoy creating strong, dynamic compositions in my paintings and find beauty in nature around me each day.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

All winning entries will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website homepage for the 3 months. Thereafter, the artworks will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives. To see exhibitions prior to April 2022, please visit our LST Archives website.
