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.

Artist Biography

Jaimie is a lens based interdisciplinary artist. Her work is rooted in place in a spiritual way within the natural world. She also studies nature through still life botanicals. Currently exploring digital with edited and some composited images, she prints the images on special papers, then further manipulates with hand-coloring, painting, and sometimes encaustics. The results are often described as ethereal. Whether representational or abstract, she seeks the little mysteries found when light models on forms and color.

Jaimie has a long use photography of traditional film and silver gelatin, Cyanotype, Van Dyke, Photograms, photo manipulations, infrared, and other alternative processes. As a fine art major, she began exploring hand tinting, coloring, and painting of photographs with oils, pencils, and water based media. She used 35 mm, 2 1/4 x 21/4, and toy cameras. Her work is archival; made with materials for longevity. She has been in many galleries, press, and venues. Pieces are in private, public, and corporate collections. All pieces are in limited editions of 10 or 15 in one or more sizes.

Jaimie was born in Ohio, and has lived in a variety of places in many states, The Netherlands, and Gabon in Africa. She earned a BFA from University of Montana with a certificate to teach. She has been an art educator in Houston for 30 years.

Where Land Meets Sea

Rushing onto the land, then retreating back into the sea, tides are at once both constant and ever-changing. The water shapes the shorelines into a surprising and beautiful place of discovery. As a Thalassophile, a lover of the sea: I long for the eternally rhythmic and mesmerizing sounds at the water’s edge and draw healing strength from their energy.

Wandering the beaches, berms, and beyond, I search for revelations in the natural shorelines. I find relationships between the depth of the sea and our deep inner beliefs. Focusing on natural environments, looking for mystery, I am creating the visualization of my dreams.

In order to better convey the mystical, I print my images on archival hot press natural and Japanese papers. I embellish with hand-colored oil pencils, pan and stick dry pastels, and other media. In building layers of color, I try to reflect the deep and ageless stirrings of the sea.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Donna McGee 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.

Donna is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning artist based in Dublin, Ireland. Donna was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 22nd Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

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

Artist Biography

Donna McGee has developed a unique style in her art. Encompassing a diverse range of influences arising out of her love of travel, not least, to the spectacular coastlines of Ireland. Observing and capturing the restless elemental forces of this landscape and celebrating its timeless beauty is central to her work.

Donna is drawn to the allure of stormy skies, vibrant sunsets and the transformative effects of the ever-changing light, revealing a sense of the extraordinary in the ordinary. It creates an emotional response and a spiritual connection within the wonder of nature. She likes to work in oils and coupled with the use of a palette knife and the build-up of rich, tactile texture, her interpretation of the subject matter is transformed rather than merely recorded. She also enjoys the freedom of expression in the painting of abstract.

Creating art is an avenue for Donna to connect with a very large community of like-minded people. She is self-taught, but returned to college a number of times to study in the field of digital media production and marketing as she felt those skills were a must to survive in the art world. She appreciates the value in knowing that her work as an artist brings joy to others and considers it an absolute honour. It enables her to continue her passion in life— that is of course, painting!

Artist Statement

As a visual artist, working for over 20 years from my studio in Dublin, inspiration surrounds me by observing the timeless beauty of the Irish landscape. Expressing the extraordinary in the ordinary and a wish to share that magic with you. Taking note of the transformative effects of light on the subject matter can create mood and atmosphere – a luxurious mix of photo-realistic / abstract / ethereal / surreal qualities.

I like to paint places that I have visited that linger on my mind. Forever, drawn to the allure of brilliant sunsets, stormy skies contrasted against the rhythmic force of the ocean. I am spoilt for choice with Irelands’ stunning scenery – the Wild Atlantic Way – 1,600 miles of rugged coastal beauty. Also, Ireland’s Ancient East, the land of myths and legends, and the birthplace of Irish culture.

Oil paint is my favourite medium because of its vibrancy, a fusion of tones or rich and vivid colour. Coupled with the use of a palette knife, great tactile effects with layers of texture can be achieved. Best results happen when many layers are built up but it can be a slow process because of the drying time. I like to take creative license by adding surrealist elements to add to the mood of a painting. My process tends to me more intuitive rather than analytical as I am self-taught.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Paula Rozov 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.

Paula is an award-winning artist based in North Carolina, USA. Paula was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 22nd Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

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

Artist Biography

Paula Rozov’s art education began as an adult in the Upper Valley of the Connecticut River on the Appalachian Trail, a “spiritual place” that nurtures the time, space and breath needed for aesthetic exploration. Her mentor for eight years was Aidron Duckworth, PhD, sculptor, who had worked and taught all over the world. She completed a degree with the human figure as my focus followed by eight years of formal drawing and painting instruction.

Paula’s final study, "When God Was a Man", was completed at Vermont College of Norwich University with a thesis and full gallery show. Through the years, she has been fortunate to be included in juried shows and galleries as she moved around and traveled from east to west coast and back, Europe, Canada and Mexico. Paula taught in public school, in business and privately. She was born and raised on the beautiful coast of North Carolina and is happy to be back.

Artist Statement

With life come first impressions, from birth to the end whether we honor them or not, they are a true thing about us. The control we have over them is questionable, even when we are trying to think about it. If I am true to it, my imagery will be honest, as the first time I glimpsed a thing. That is the challenge - to leave the essence with each stroke of the knife or brush. It's the reason we put so much stock in the images produced by children. There is no editorializing, no second guessing, just the first true thought or vision - no hint of everything going on at the time whether pleasing or excruciatingly mundane or tragic or sad. I have found over the years that I know in the moment, that which I will want to carry with me. I will want to see it again and feel and smell that moment again. Painting brings me back to it, looking and thinking, trying to prevent time from taking its toll. It is ​a process I will always love.
