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.

Artist Biography

Over the years, Nic Tibo has always been drawn to arts, drawing and crafts. She has experimented several techniques: fashion design, decorative painting on ceramic pieces as well as different mediums: watercolor, acrylic and oil painting.

Today, she creates original art works painted in oil on gallery canvas in a realistic figurative style with sometimes a touch of abstract. You will find sober colors to very colorful work of art. The subjects represented are mostly photographed by the artist.

Nicole has taken many art workshops: Oil painting - Réjane Parizeault artist / Watercolor – watercolor artist Jean-Yves Guindon /Figure and Portrait Drawing – Ottawa School of Art / Decorative painting / Fashion design – Robinson Academy / Owner – ceramic pieces’ workshop: decoration, training, sale / Photography – Marsan College.

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.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Anne Gudrun 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.

Anne is an award-winning artist based in North Vancouver, Canada. Anne was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 24th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

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

Artist Biography

Canadian artist Anne Gudrun grew up in North Vancouver, British Columbia, where she was surrounded by the forest, mountains and ocean and could spend hours day-dreaming out her bedroom window, thinking and just observing life. Her visions and observations naturally made their way onto paper as intricate drawings of abstract form and colours, or life-like sketches of people and nature. She received her first oil paint set when she was nine years old and promptly taught herself to paint. Throughout her school years she excelled in the arts, and at 18 she set off to her ancestral home of Norway, spending a year at a small island art school. It was here that her love for the northern landscape and the beauty of nature took root.

Primarily a self-taught artist, Anne has studied locally with Canadian artists, as well as attending workshops and classes at Emily Carr College of Art and Design. Anne's unique style provides an uplifting and colourful statement piece and her work has been chosen for public art displays, receiving awards and special recognition in select online and international art competitions.

She lives in North Vancouver where she paints and creates from her studio, spending her summers in Norway and travelling. Her paintings reflect the beauty of nature with bold vibrancy and an innate sense of design.

Artist Statement

I’ve always intuitively observed how lines, colours and shapes define the essence and personality of things, so when I paint I begin by breaking down the complete picture into its abstract forms. Whether creating the figurative representation of a person, or the abstraction of a forest or flower, I play with the interactions between the shapes and colours on canvas, each colour and shape becoming its own character and contributing to the work as a whole.

When looking closely at the details of the painting it appears abstract, but standing back you see the complete picture… The apparent random chaos of nature becoming form... The real from the abstract.

As a young girl I read stories of fairy-tale forests, trolls, myths and magic. It’s a world of wonder, adventure, mystery and transformation and it’s that world I want to re-create through my art, opening a doorway to a more brilliant reality.

Anne’s art can be found on her website.

Deimante is an Artist who is completely self-taught. She is breath taking realistic wildlife paintings of animals. Deimante works in a variety of media including acrylic, oil, pastel, watercolour, graphite and mixed media.

Artist Statement

“When it is my time to leave this world, I wish to do so knowing that I have left paintings that inspire others to appreciate the beauty of the natural world.”

I have been a lifelong artist. I've been drawing since I can remember. Art class has always been my favourite class. My style is realist, as I am obsessed with detail. I have always had a deep love of animals and nature. I find inspiration in all kinds of creatures, both domestic and wildlife, big, small, or in between.

My favourite subjects are wildlife. I love drawing animals as it is a way of accessing the secrets of the natural world. I can see their souls through their eyes, which I try to capture in my paintings. Animals are as individual as humans, but for me they manifest a purer and more genuine spirit to the outside world than do human beings. I can love animals by painting them, leaving a legacy of their existence and hopefully bringing to the viewer the same joy that I experience painting them.

I would like more people to be able to experience the connection that I have with animals. I wish to take this further to really convey that animals have their own personality and soul. Every portrait I do enriches my life, for the subject enters my heart. We are all connected. Connections are magical, providing an opportunity to nurture patience, compassion, love and caring.

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.

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

Artist Biography

Paul Kenens was born in Brussels (1947), the eldest of six children, without a father. As a 14-year-old and the breadwinner of the family, he found work in a printing house. Updated to a color mixer and offset printer for luxury printing, at the time a specialized craft, he discovered his sense of composition and color. Thirteen years later he left the printing house for a year, but never returned. He no longer wanted to depend on third parties and her started acting. In the same period, he discovered the ceramic craft.

Paul Kenens is passionate about this two disciplines, resulting in two parallel careers. As an independent actor in film, TV and theater, he worked in international theater. As a ceramist, he specialized in color glazes, designed decorations and tile panels, copied old Art Nouveaux panels, made ceramic architectural ceramics for protected monuments and performed artistic ceramics commissions for other artists and architects.

In 2010 he decided to paint and enrolled in the academy. Unaware of the gift or experience gained in painting with ceramic glazes, whose final color is not immediately visible, oil painting is one Revelation: "I can see right now that I do," he says.

He sold the ceramic workshop, stopped acting and devoted himself entirely to the painting. In the academy he was soon given the name of an outsider the passion and use of a detailed painting style.  He commutes daily between academy and his own studio. In between he follows a Masterclass at the Brazilian hyperrealist Omar Ortiz

Artist Statement

My work starts with photos of a fixed fashion model and I take a few hundred photos per photo session. Different photos are edited and adapted until a certain image can no longer be recognized. The chaos in the head must be given a direction, the reminiscences that are attached to it at that moment and the intimate feelings that it arouses channeled. Multiple versions are made in an atmosphere of excitement. During the preparation, uncertainty about the future painted version flashes in all directions. One must first fall a little in love with the subject in order to paint.

I paint the first layer as detailed as possible, as if I want to finish the painting in one layer. Then I paint over the entire canvas in the same way. Shapes and colors are adjusted. I like saturated canvases without painting pasty. They bring depth to the color.

Although the starting point is photographic material, it is always a challenge to distinguish between photorealism and a painted image. Each painting is an attempt to increase the distance between the two. The whole of my work is not sterile but emotional, it shows what moves me. I view the painted canvas more critically, each time from a different state of mind or point of view, with correction as a result.

My titles sometimes raise questions, make the viewer think, it gives the viewer the opportunity to fill in their own interpretation. In the end it comes down to the fact that I partly reveal the inner through the choice made.

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

Garry Arzumanyan is an award-winning self-taught artist whose paintings have been exhibited in Netherlands, the United States, Australia, Slovenia, France, Italy, Russia, Serbia, Belarus, and Armenia. He describes his art as being born by both women and the sea, stating that he has not yet encountered "a deeper, more enigmatic, nor more fatal phenomena".

Each painting is a separate story, through which he tells the audience about something worrying him and trying to explain his point of view. Every painting is a dialogue with the audience which may last from a few minutes to lifetime. Garry loves to discover people`s emotions, fears, dark and light sides in this dialogue. His expressive compositions are created with oils, pencils, and charcoal on canvas or paper.

Born in Armenia and from early childhood inspired by the works of Ivan Aivazovsky and Francis Bacon, he became a multiple winner of various competitions since childhood.

Artist Statement

When I start my paintings, the first thing I do is outlining complexity and harmony of the sky and clouds, and when the sky is fully done, I get to the two layers of the sea and before finishing the sea, I start painting figures over the sea. Drawing figures over the water is the main and the most time-consuming process of my painting, and it may sometimes last months. I usually start with 2 or 3 figures, but with the time this number can get more, at times with unexpected images for myself. Each painting is a separate story, through which I tell the audience about something worrying me and trying to explain my point of view describing the duality of human feelings through the prism of existential perception. Every painting is a dialogue with the audience which may last from a few minutes to lifetime. I love to discover people`s emotions, fears, dark and light sides in the dialogue. Many people say that I paint a sea, but I do not paint a sea. I paint people, through water and sea images. I paint people with their weak and strong, dark and light sides, people with their fears, people with their dreams.

Garry’s work can be viewed on his website.

The mind of the cube has been scrambled, put in disarray, and even broken held together only in the most unstable of ways. This was meant to represent how many people felt after the pandemic, our minds tired and unfocused our plans broken and scrambled.

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

Judy is an award winning artist. Her artwork was selected as a juried finalist in Artist’s Magazine Annual Art Competition. Her work was published in Southwest Art Magazine and Artist Portfolio Magazine. She was also named the cover artist of Artist Portfolio Magazine. “My art is mostly from my own life experiences: my home, the town I've been living in for years, places I visited in the past, my children’s activities and people I met. I painted people or the moments in my life that moved me. I hope the viewers will relate my artwork to their own life” remarks Judy. While Judy paints various subjects, portraits are always Judy’s favorite. She is fascinated by every human face, whether an old woman in Nepal or a little girl next door. She not only wants to paint an individual's face but his/her soul. When asked about her painting style, Judy described her style as classic realism with a contemporary approach. She wants to show painterly quality of her work not photo realistic or total classic realism. She likes to use an abstract background to her portrait to show some contemporary feeling and use bold brush strokes to evoke emotions and inject energy. For medium choice, she loves Oil. Judy studied at Watts Atelier of the Arts and Palette & Chisel Academy of Fine Arts.

Artist Statement

To me, art is a way to document my life and express my feelings. My art is mostly from my own life experiences: my home, the town I've been living in for years, places I visited in the past, my children’s activities and people I met. I painted people or the moments in my life that moved me. I hope the viewers will relate my artwork to their own experiences.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Alan Tarbell 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.

Alan is an award-winning artist based in Oakland, California, USA. He was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 21st Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified his art to be showcased in this feature.

Alan’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 Alan’s Artist Biography and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Alan is inspired by nature’s infinite combinations of form, light, texture, atmosphere and rhythm. He finds richness in the weather and weathered objects, in the land and its layers, in the wind patterns, waves and great rock formations found on Earth. They seem to speak volumes on time, regenerate cyclically, all the while telling a profound story. His environmental pieces are a call to reflect on our vital and delicate relationship to the Earth and hopefully inspire its protection.

Through his painting practice Alan attempts to reveal vitality in his subject matter through dynamic color and movement. He often uses his camera to compose ideas upon which he translates them to canvas in a layered approach. The initial surface is textured and built upon with subsequent paint crusts, like the ancient sediments of the Earth. Here he allows the process to guide unique conversations between the evolving surfaces

Alan has an MFA from the Instituto Allende, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and a BA in Geography with a minor in Geology from UC Davis in 1997. His work has been exhibited in galleries in San Miguel de Allende, Queretaro, Toluca, Mexico and, Point Reyes, Richmond, Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco and Los Angeles, CA. His work is held by numerous private collectors in Mexico and the US.

Artist Statement

Bonsai California

These paintings of conifers are intimate portraits of trees from the wilds of California. My painting process starts with my camera, composing the tree amongst its environment, a stoic presence against the infinite sky. Texturizing the canvas mimics the immense layers found in the bark of these ancient trees. The painting is infused with memory of place, expressive brushwork radiating with color and rhythm juxtaposing movement with the seeming stillness of time. My intention is to portray a tree’s unique and persevering character, inspiring awe, and veneration. There is wisdom in the trees.

The resilience of these conifers can give hope to the challenges of our own survival. Especially during these very trying times: of sickness and desperation, of division and upheaval, of dramatic and catastrophic climate change. They have survived many fires and droughts over the millennia, which has helped to forge their character and growth. Fire is a great destroyer, but equally it is an essential element of renewal. May their majestic presence inspire us towards better days ahead, helping us to see the depth of the forest and ultimately becoming stewards for their future preservation.

California’s Native tribes have traditionally maintained the forests through periodic prescribed burns to enhance their productivity and facilitate passage. 5% of sales from these paintings will go to the Karuk Tribe’s Wildland Fire Program (

https://www.karuk.us/index.php/departments/natural-resources/eco-cultural-revitalization/wildland-fire-program) as they look to rebuild and promote eco-stewardship through integration of tribal wisdom practices.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Paulo Delgado 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.

Paulo is an award-winning artist based in Canada. Paulo was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 20th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified his art to be showcased in this feature.

Paulo’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 Paulo’s Artist Biography and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography:

Paulo Delgado is known for his faceless figures that intrigues his audience. He was born in Mozambique and grew up in a little village in Portugal. He completed his degree in Graphic Design and worked in that area for almost 20 years. In 2010, he immigrated to Canada.

“I like to paint the everyday life of the country that took me in. The light and the colour of the prairie sky is so impressive.”

By simplifying each figure, he can capture their essence. The backgrounds are made up of geometric shapes and lines that contrasts with the central figures.

Artist Statement:

With a 20-year career in Graphic Design, my paintings reflect my acquired habits in this profession. I am a self-taught painter and never received any formal training. Acrylic is my chosen medium and I have worked to perfect my technique using this medium. I like the simplification of form and the shapes take in a poster-like feeling.

The face is the mirror of the soul and with it, we can understand their state of mind. The simplification of the face is done on purpose. It is incredibly challenging to use shapes and colour to transmit what is in your soul.

Some of my favourite themes include landscapes and the Portuguese ethnography. I also enjoy exploring the colours of the Manitoba prairies. The light of the skies fascinates me and inspires me, especially sunsets. The use of geometric shapes in the background’s contrasts with the main figures in the foreground as if it were a set of a play. The use of strong colours and different nuances is a constant in my work. Painting for me is a stress reliever which allows me to relax and find balance in my everyday life. I want to tell stories through my painting.

Below are Elisabeth’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 20 artworks.  We hope that you will take the time to read Elisabeth’s information and to take a look at her mixed media artwork.

Artist Biography:

B. Dumont Renard was born in France in 1957. She signs her paintings B. Dumont Renard, sometimes BDR. She received her first easel at the age of 16 and began to paint under the expert advice of a painter from her region. At 18, her first exhibitions took place at the Pays de Salers in Cantal and at the Château de Val in Auvergne. During the next decade, she took classes at the ABC in Paris, experimented with various techniques and began to exhibit on a regular basis. At the same time, she worked on the creation of posters, wine labels and commissions for the State, in particular for various town halls. She also begin to experiment with illustration, mosaic, sculpture and eventually abstraction.

In addition, Elisabeth has an affinity for cats. She has created over two hundred cat drawings and acrylic paintings on paper, wood and canvas. Her cats brighten up her life and her work and this series of cats has been presented in many exhibitions, salons, etc. in France and abroad, including Tokyo, Seoul, Milan, New York, Shanghai, San Roan and Spain to name a few.

In 2009, she became a member of the International Collective of Artists Art Zoom (CIAAZ) in order to open up new horizons at the international, of which she has seen much success. She has also won awards for her work in numerous exhibitions and been published in numerous books and magazines.

Artist Statement:

The media I use for my art consists in superimposing several layers of resin, with long drying times between each layer, in order to obtain glazes. It is the search for a special light and effects of depth that guide me in my process. Breaking with the classic conception of painting according to which the reflection outshines the vision, my work is noteworthy for its dark tones associated with luminous contrasts and is based on the demonstration of the way in which a color escapes monochromy. I would like the viewer to get lost inside my paintings and my work is an invitation to poetic experience.

Elisabeth’s work can be viewed on her website.
