Artist Biography

Ilona is an image-maker and a digital artist. Taking images gives her as much fun as processing them. Digital tools and painting helped convert her photos and composites into digital art.

Learning new ways of making her art different gives her pleasure; she evolves and moves on, so she does not get boring to her viewers or bored with herself.

She is regularly published in International Art Magazines and participates in numerous Art Exhibitions. It is incredible what we can produce in the digital age, and it is fun.

Artist Statement

In these last two years, we had so many restrictions. We couldn’t travel overseas and sometimes not even to the next suburb. My art is my sanity. Some of you probably think the word sanity is not coming to mind when you look at some of my artwork. I kept swamped during this time. I also tried to get inventive and created my models in the digital world.

For this exhibition, I came up with the idea to paint portraits in the style of Art Deco. I painted the illustrations in Procreate on my iPad. It is fascinating that my art lets me bring my fantasy to print and that I can share my somewhat warped ideas with the viewers. I hope that my work evokes questions and triggers your fantasy.

Below are Garry’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 20 artworks.  We hope that you will take the time to read Garry’s information and to take a look at his beautiful oil paintings.

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.

Congratulations to Lillian Anna Blouin for her acceptance into Fusion Art's Featured Artist Members Gallery.

Lillian Anna Blouin is an award-winning, hyper realistic artist based in Newport Beach, California, USA.

After receiving a BA in Illustration from Laguna College of Art and Design, she went on and built a successful career as an illustrator. However, after showcasing in several galleries within California, she quickly found much more fulfillment within the fine art community.

Lillian has a unique way of taking ordinary objects and creating surrealistic worlds. A devoted student of hyper-realism Lillian’s unique style of painting seeks to bridge together the worlds of the real and the unreal. Each piece is a surreal exploration of everyday objects with multiple interpretations behind each painting.

Lillian was awarded 1st Place Overall/Best in Show for her artwork, "Disordered Mind," in the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery’s 6th Annual “Patters, Textures & Forms” Online Art Exhibition in October 2022 and selected this Featured Artist membership as her award.

"Disordered Mind," uses the image of a Rubix Cube to symbolize a mind in turmoil. 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.  

Lillian also won 5th Place in LST’s  “Created in Isolation” Art Exhibition in the Spring/Summer of 2020.

She is a Fusion Art Featured Artist Member. Click below to visit her member artist webpage and to learn more about her.

Artist Biography

Eileen E. Senter is a self-taught digital artist. She has always enjoyed art and dabbled in t-shirt painting, ceramics and clay molding. However, after retirement with the British Government 15 years ago, she chose photography as her medium of choice.

Her first camera was a Kodak instamatic but Eileen has never liked straight out of the camera images and very soon researched various software photography programs that would help her grow as an artist and showcase her artwork. She blends programs together, sometimes two to three times until she gets to the “aha moment!”

Eileen’s favorite subjects are wildlife, flowers, rural scenes for composites, anything in nature. Her work has been published in the Galveston Monthly magazines a few times.

Artist Statement

I am originally from Nottingham, England, now living in Texas with my Husband, who is my best friend and avid supporter of my work. I have always had a desire for photography but creating art is my true passion. I am self-taught and work with many digital programs using my images to create and compose with the desire of bringing to life what I see through the camera for a finished and combined work of art.

Their collaborative persona will now be promoted by the gallery with an extensive public relations campaign.

For this solo exhibition, the Gallery will distribute, promote and circulate press releases to over 550+ major News Outlets, including Premium FOX, CBS, and NBC Affiliated Sites, with guaranteed inclusion on Google News & Bing News.

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 Brian’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 25 artworks.  We hope that you will take the time to read Brian’s information and to take a look at his beautiful stone sculptures.

Artist Biography

Born in Schenectady, New York, raised in Washington, D.C., Brian Mark has been intrigued by art of all kinds for most of his life. Literature appealed to him and ultimately, Mark taught English literature at university. While he was doing scholarly work on English literature, Mark began to feel a tug toward doing, not just intellectualizing about art.

Mark’s first artistic foray was in woodworking. After a while, he could not shake the impact Dylan Thomas’ poem, “In My Craft or Sullen Art” had on him. Mark kept feeling he was doing craft, not art, and wanted more. A friend urged him to look seriously at stone sculpture as his art focus.

Eventually, Brian Mark went to that sculpting class, and as he tells it: ‘As soon as I set foot in the studio and looked at the work the students were doing, I was hooked.’ That was 20 years ago. Mr. Mark has been joyfully doing stone sculpting from that date to now. Sculpting is something he simply cannot NOT do. It is a passion.

He creates abstract sculptures in harder stone such as marble, calcite, onyx, and others. He does not strive to make statements with his art, but rather ‘tries to bring beauty into this world, and at the same time soothe his soul by fulfilling the creative process.’ His work has been seen in many art shows and looks forward to continuing his love/work in stone.

Artist Statement

Nature is raw. Art is practiced. Each stone has its own language and I work to understand that language. Some of the learning comes from striving to listen to what each stone is saying. Each has a color, a shape, and a hidden beauty. While valuing that uniqueness, I strive to let my imagination fly free, in order build upon nature’s creation: blending raw nature with understanding the language of this stone. And, so begins the conversation between stone and sculptor. When a stone selects me, I cannot know what striations, hues, density, faults, lie under the surface. As I begin chiseling and grinding, the stone talks to me, saying, “I have this special colored line running through me: preserve it”. Or, “slightly shift the angle of this or that curve”. Or, “work with me: together we can bring forth that special surprise, that new beauty never before seen”. The conversation continues until nature’s stone and my imagination marry and together say, “stop – our work is done”. For me that conversation must lead to a sculpture that has movement, movement, movement. That movement is stone brought to life in a way never before seen.

Brian’s work can be viewed on his website.

Below is David’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 25 of his abstract artworks.  We hope that you will take the time to read David’s information and to take a look at his artwork.

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.

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 20th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

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.

Artist Biography:

Barney Levitt has been creating ‘pictures’ ever since he was old enough to grip a crayon and scribble on his parents’ living room walls. He was given his first oil set when he was 10 years old, which set him on his destined path to becoming a professional artist. After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting from S.U.N.Y at Oswego, he never looked back.

He was greatly influenced by the works of the Dutch and Flemish masters and his highly detailed works in realism captures the viewers’ attention, for their unique and often humorous content. Humor and a strong narrative are key ingredients in his work, and he often uses a bright color palette in his paintings. His work ranges from classical still life set-ups to quirkier narrative pieces that invite the viewer to create a narrative of their own.

Titles are important to Barney as they give the viewer better insight into what he’s trying to convey. His work combines naturalistic detail with quirky offbeat compositions that often juxtapose ordinary objects in ways the viewer doesn’t expect.

Barney is a signature member of The National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society (NOAPS), A Copley Society of Art Master, a member of The International Guild of Realism (IGOR), and Oil Painters of America (OPA). He is represented by several New England galleries.

Artist Statement:

The goal of my work is to capture the viewers' attention through humor and narrative. My work is highly detailed realism but often with an interesting twist which I hope will elicit a smile, or invite wonder and offer a narrative to spark the viewers' imagination. My subject matter incorporates natural objects like bird and wildlife, to beach stones, feathers, and other found objects. I look for material that evokes a sense of nostalgia; classic board games and antiques. My paintings are created layer by layer, as the details build slowly with each successive layer. I have a keen eye for detail and no detail is left undone in my work. Painting is my way of expressing my unique view of the world and my compositions often border on the surreal. The scenes often can't exist in reality, but the photographic detail would tell you otherwise.

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.

Artist Biography

Calvin Lai's art is a mixture of medicine, meditation, and personal growth. He found early on that drawing was something he loved, and to make a picture appear lifelike became his goal. Through constantly drawing, his work began to breath, and Calvin's fascination with value and perspective led him to become a student of realism. Eventually he moved from where he grew up in Los Angeles to San Francisco. There he studied drawing and printmaking at San Francisco State University. In 2008, he enrolled in the Academy of Art for illustration, but began painting instead. He found that he preferred the fine arts over commercial illustration, and now works as a full time oil painter.

Since then, working from his studio, he has continued to develop and refine his oil painting skills. Lai’s work has been shown nationally in galleries, group exhibitions and juried shows. He has executed a large number of portrait commissions over the past several years, and his paintings have appeared in national and international publications. Throughout his career, Calvin Lai has expanded his focus from figurative and portraiture to encompass a variety of subjects such as still life to the San Francisco cityscape. Now he has no borders to what he chooses to paint, and he is driven to capture everything around him through his paints, brushes, and determination.

Artist Statement

I collect moments. If you look through my collection you'll see paintings of people I've met, places I've been, and things I've seen. Because of my background in classical realism, it is important for me to paint these moments realistically. But solely painting realism feels incomplete, and I find that it can become a bit too academic. It's not only about the visual recreation that is my intention in oil painting. I want to make my audience feel they are walking down a rainy street, climbing up a sun drenched hill, or sitting in front of a beautiful figure. I want a viewer to feel the moments I collect.

In my work, I find myself breaking free from traditional ways of painting and incorporating much more expressive means. I place highly developed detail next to looser, almost abstract, areas. I'm fascinated with how to combine near photographic rendering alongside the roughness of the palette knife, or the randomness of a loaded brush. This combination of realism and Impressionism techniques creates a natural tension in my paintings, as well as directs where I want the eye to travel. Even my choice of composition and subject matter are influenced by this part of me. I find that I create compositions outside of conventional rules and gravitate towards subjects that do not necessarily follow a standard of beauty. There is a bit of provocation in this, as I play off of the traditional ways art should be, but there is also an invitation to see what else beauty entails.

Artist Biography:

Maureen Ravnik was born and raised in Minnesota. A brief visit to Colorado sold her on attending college there to pursue a career in sales & marketing. She stayed and never looked back. Working and traveling a lot in that discipline opened her eyes to the wonders of the American west and reawakened childhood tendencies to creatively document her discoveries. She began making images of the American west in hopes of preserving the history, the culture, and the dreams that shaped the west. Maureen has accomplished many things with her photography including images placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local, national and international juried photography exhibitions, winning placements in monthly club competitions, state park calendars, images selected for use by the City of Littleton, and many images selected as editor picks on National Geographic and for publication. Her work has been the subject of several newspapers.

She has co-authored 2 books that document the history, beauty and environment of the second largest natural area in the country. She was listed by LightSpaceTime.art as one of the top ten photographers to watch for in 2018. She was also selected for a month-long solo exhibition by LightSpaceTime.art for April, 2019. At the end of 2019, Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery announced their “Year in Review” recap. This annual feature reviews and promotes the gallery’s 12 top winning artists for the 12 individual monthly art exhibitions.

In 2019, the gallery received more than 9,703+ entries for their art competitions and Maureen’s art was selected for what the gallery considered to be one of the best 13 entries from their themed exhibitions. Maureen was selected again for a 2-week, solo showcase by LightSpaceTime.art for March, 2020 and January, 2021. Maureen has also served as a juror for the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Colorado.

Artist Statement:

Maureen is an emerging talent whose methods and techniques are largely self-taught. Part of Maureen’s time is spent outdoors taking in and capturing scenery, wildlife, and exploring other methods for interpreting and sharing what she sees and experiences along the way. She is deeply inspired by the work of Ansel Adams and Art Wolfe. Part of Maureen’s work is also derived from her imagination. Her greatest satisfaction comes from taking the file from the camera and into the computer to develop composites. The results reflect her personal feelings and beliefs, events, culture, etc. that are best expressed through artistic interpretations.

Below are Jyl’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 25 of her digital paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read Jyl’s information and to take a look at her artwork.

Artist Biography:

An award winning and published artist, Jyl Blackwell has been creating art and music since her childhood. She has early beginnings as a pencil and charcoal artist as well as dabbling in pastels and watercolor. When she wasn’t creating works of art, she was singing and dancing on stage.

Jyl’s art sprang from a love of science and technology. It wasn’t until recent advances in software that she was able to form art and science into a process called Kinetic Flow Painting™. Kinetic is defined as relating to or resulting from motion (of a work of art) depending on movement for its effect. And that movement is created by the flow of the pixels. Swirling layers of gradient pixels are put into motion on the digital canvas. Often inspired by nature, dance and the human form, Jyl bring the abstract to real-life experiences and observations.

Jyl Blackwell is an internationally awarded artist and has shown her work in many exhibits in the United States. Her most recent digital paintings can be seen in galleries and exhibits in the Seattle area.

Artist Statement:

I have always loved all things creative. Since childhood, I have written music and poetry, enjoyed working with textiles and fiber arts, and telling compelling stories through photography and traditional art mediums. I found a whole new method of expression when I discovered digital art.

My art arrived on the scene when I was able to form art and technology into a process I call Kinetic Flow Painting™. Swirling layers of gradient pixels are put into motion and painted on the digital canvas. Sometimes these layers reside on their own and sometimes they are incorporated into photographic or digital collages.

Several software programs are used to create each elemental note that is composed into one cohesive piece. Often, new advances in software send me in an entirely new direction but always with the same process of extracting the essence of the piece through color and curve, form and light - music for the eyes.
