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 21st “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

Below are MB’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement, along with 18 of their paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read MB’s information and to take a look at their art.

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.

Below are Arlene’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 12 artworks.  We hope that you will take the time to read Arlene’s information and to take a look at her "Absence of Privacy" series of paintings.

Artist Biography

As far as she can remember, Arlene Buster’s devotion to painting emerged at a very young age. As told by her parents and her grandmother, whenever they would check up on her, they would find her painting or drawing by herself, in the quiet corners of her home. Her devotion to art was further nourished when her mother took her to inquire about her very first private art class. When she graduated from high school, she pursued her art at Montclair State University, earning a bachelor's degree in painting and drawing before attending the Academy of Art University. However, her journey was interrupted as she battled personal struggles with illness that made it impossible for her to pursue her art and even accomplish everyday tasks. Throughout those painful struggles, she thought a lot about the artist Frida Kahlo and the struggles she endured.

When Arlene began walking and using her hands again, it was a significant crossroad in her life. At the present time, in spite of some considerable impairments and pain she still experiences, she is much better. Painting for Arlene is personal, especially now, for the reason that it permits her to escape the painful obstacles in life and imparts her with purpose. The hours become minutes while she narrates her stories with her brushes filled with paint.

Artist Statement

In the words of Marshall McLuhan, “Technology is just not a happenstance and not just something that got there when nobody was noticing and so, we are responsible for our technologies and the effects of our technologies, as we are responsible for tidying up our grammar.”

I have created my series Absence of Privacy because I believe everyone has a right to privacy. Likewise, I believe that most unscripted moments in life, should remain unscripted and free from a world of webcams. To illustrate the ways in which webcams have invaded our lives, I have painted twelve paintings with oil on canvas. I paint the figure in everyday settings as they are being watched through a surveillance camera or webcam.

My interest in this topic began when I created a still-life oil painting of a webcam for my Contemporary Painting class in 2011. It felt eerie and overpowering. It was agitating to see a webcam up-close staring at me. For this reason, I began reflecting on the multitude of cameras that were gawking at me throughout the day. Prior to this, I had never given this much attention. As I read articles about privacy abuses, I felt compelled to communicate these issues through painting.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Skottie O’Mahony 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.

Skottie is an award-winning artist based in Texas, USA. Skottie was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 18th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified his art to be showcased in this feature.

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

Artist Biography

Skottie has always loved art, nature, and connecting with people. He has had a long, successful career in design and art direction for the publishing and tech industries. Several years ago, he designed his home and botanical gardens in Austin, Texas, known as Tanglewild Gardens, where he hybridizes daylilies with his husband, and pursues his digital art. He is inspired by texture, color and form — a fallen seed, small creature, or a striking individual may serve as his muse, and he takes photographs of that muse to be used as a base for his artwork.

More recently, Skottie has started to explore AI (Artificial Intelligence) as a way to explore new directions in his work, and currently creates his own muses. He still uses photographs of individuals who do exist, but through AI, he digitally “hybridizes” new people to act as the subjects in his portraiture.

Manipulating those photos digitally, Skottie transforms them into something that evokes a poignant response, awakens the viewer's imagination, or inspires them. His art has qualities, as well as integrated elements, that give a nod to his more traditional art background of painting, encaustic, pastel, etching, etc. Some older works of his are used for textural elements, digitally as filters or for layering, and as a way to add depth to an otherwise two dimensional work. This synergy of techniques makes his work unique, emotional and thought provoking.

Skottie is an emerging artist and has already been recognized in both regional and global art shows. He has also donated work for fundraising art auctions for non-profits and has done commissioned works for collectors. In January of this year, Skottie was recognized as a “Change-Maker” by VoyageAustin Magazine and profiled as one of their “Stories That Inspire”, for his career journey and digital artwork.

He has worked on several collaborative pieces with other emerging artists across the globe, and is often inspired by current events and his sympathetic reaction to xenophobia, bigotry and injustice. Being an out and proud gay man, he has experienced prejudice, bullying, and worse in his life, and tends to bond with the misfits of our world. He has spent a lifetime working with diversity, equity and inclusion-related causes and non-profits, and that exposure to those marginalized in society, is evident is his work. There are complex stories behind many of his portrait subjects, many of whom have been stigmatized, disenfranchised, or suffered great abuse or pain at one time or another, and there are haunting echoes of those hardships perceptible in their portraits.

Artist Statement

I’m inspired by the natural world and drawn to unusual and different textures, colors and forms. I might happen upon a spent blossom, a creepy insect, or a striking person that serves as my muse, but I always find a seed of beauty in whatever it might be. I’m driven to capture what drew my attention in an image and share what others, may have overlooked, but I was privileged to notice. 

These images serve as the basis for my work. I push my images digitally to generate something that goes far beyond what initially drew me in, but still retains its essence. More recently I have been exploring artificial intelligence as a way to not only enhance my work, but to create worlds, structures, and people that previously may have only existed in the imagination or dreams.

Through the use of filtering, image layering and digital manipulation, my work transforms a simple image into the unexpected and often lends itself to pareidolia, or the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness. Think of a Rorschach inkblot, but with color, texture, depth and emotion.

The digital aspect of my work allows me to reproduce the final image on a number of mediums to texturally enhance the work even further, including metal, canvas, wood, archival paper and even glass.

My goal is to create that which has never existed, but with roots in nature; something that evokes a poignant or personal response, makes a statement, that awakens the viewer’s imagination and, if I’m lucky, inspires them.

Below is Patti’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 20 of her images.  We hope that you will take the time to read Patti’s information and to take a look at her beautiful artwork.

Artist Biography:

Patti Bradeis is an award winning artist born in Philadelphia, PA and currently living in New Jersey. She draws her photorealistic portraits with graphite, carbon and charcoal. Her techniques have evolved from studying the works of artists she admires and experimenting with various tools to achieve her desired effect. She uses photographs as her references.

Quoting Renée Phillips, Director and Curator of Manhattan Arts International, “She not only achieves an incredible likeness to her subjects, she infuses her drawings with enormous love for humanity and her drawings evoke a powerful visceral effect on viewers. She reveals truths about many positive aspects of the human experience, particularly love, hope and unity that leap into our hearts.”

Artist Statement:

I'm of the mind to search for treasured trinkets in moments that appear to be mundane. For my portraits the subjects I choose to draw cultivate joy, comfort, hope and/or encouragement in my spirit which hopefully reaches the viewers heartstrings as well. I prefer to draw children in all their transparencies, vulnerabilities and innocence because, i believe, in our core we still relate to those spontaneous, raw emotions regardless of the many hats we wear as adults.

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

Jon Bøe Paulsen is an Oslo, Norway based artist. He specializes in creating “Carravaggistic” like portraits.  His portraits tell many stories in one single image, and his dynamic between light and dark. He will now be promoted by the gallery with an extensive public relations campaign.

This solo exhibition will distribute, promote and circulate press releases to over 550+ major News Outlets, Premium FOX, CBS, NBC, Affiliated Sites, Guaranteed inclusion on Google News & Bing News and social media distribution through LST gallery’s broad social media network.

In addition, as part of his award package, he will now be featured as an Artsy.net Light Space & Time promoted artist.   The LST Artsy.net page will feature 5 pieces of the artist’s art, a small artist statement and their website URL’s as part of the gallery’s overall prize package.

Jon’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 ninth “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

Below is Jon’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 25 of photographs.  We hope that you will take the time to read Jon’s information and to take a look at his hauntingly realistic paintings.  

Artist Biography:

Jon Bøe Paulsen’s (1958) paintings are hauntingly realistic. His impeccable skills give filmic qualities to his works. The artist studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (US) and graduated from the Norwegian State Art Academy in 1984.

His portraits tell many stories in one single image, and his dynamic between light and dark add a “carravaggistic” feel. Jon’s success as an artist was translated into various commissions, awards, and publications, including a documentary film on his life.

The artist’s work has been featured in exhibitions in Norway, the United States, France, and the United Kingdom.

Artist Statement:

I regard myself as an artist belonging to the group of new realists where humanity is seen in a new light and painted strongly figuratively. It is important though that such an expression of art moves in a direction where the photograph cannot follow.

The meaning of Clair Obscure, in Italian chiaroscuro, is light in the darkness. Classical paintings of that order last longer in the eye of the viewer because of their restricted use of color.

That is some of the reasons why I work with plain and few earth colors and very seldom part from that rule unless it is absolutely necessary. I've never forgot that unwritten directive and it was usable in oil, watercolor and charcoal as well. One of them was: "Don't be too tough with your pencil when you draw. Not too much information when you catch the line. Do not underestimate your audience".

This portfolio of Jon Bøe Paulsen contains 25 selected works from a so far 42-year long career.  Jon’s website is www.artrenewal.org/Artist/Index/7440

“durga Garcia is a leading personality in the sphere of fine art photography and an award-winning fine art photographer recognized for her unique storytelling and surrealist images. Well versed in headshots, animal portraits, and conceptual photography, Garcia has an unrestrained connection with the symbol of femininity, describing the female form as a reminiscent of care, nurture, empathy, sensitivity, and kindness.

Artist Statement:

An assemblage of timeless portraits, whether in Italy, the Netherlands or South Carolina each portrait will have a beautiful symbiotic relationship with their plant, tree or animal surroundings. Portraits seemingly un-posed, a moment caught in time.

Using muted organic tones to create quality images, with gestures, textures and often the unexpected.

I strive to make an image that is thought-provoking, an image that people will be taken by, to want to look at more closely, to notice any subtle nuances and most of all to be a memorable image that will hang over the fireplace becoming a family treasure.

My hope is for viewers to be in awe of the natural combined beauty.  durga's website: www.durgaGarcia.com
