Artist Biography

Elaine Franz Witten majored in art at Connecticut College, New London, Connecticut and studied sculpture at Columbia University. Her work is inspired by living close to nature in Vermont. With a Registered Nurse background, her anatomical knowledge informs her figurative work.

Elaine’s art has been exhibited in over one hundred fifty National and International exhibitions as well as museums and regional solo shows. Her bronzes are in public and private collections in U.S., Canada and in the private collection of the former King of Saudi Arabia. Ms. Witten created an outdoor lion head fountain for the Village of Old Bennington, Vermont, as well as a dove fountain for St Mary’s Medical Foundation, Langhorn, Pennsylvania. Several of her sculptures are in the permanent collection of Dorset Public Library, Dorset, Vermont, and in corporate collections in Vermont and Alaska. In 2013, she became a purveyor of sculpture to the U.S. State Department for use as Presidential gifts by President Obama.

In New York City, her sculptures have been exhibited at Park Avenue Gallery as part of several National Sculpture Society exhibitions, the National Arts Club, Salmagundi Art Club and Sylvia and Po Kim Gallery. Ms. Witten is an elected member of the National Society of Women Artists.

Elaine has taught sculpture for twenty years at Southern Vermont Arts Center, Manchester, Vermont. She is a past Trustee of Vermont College of Fine Arts, Montpelier, Vermont. She is represented by galleries in Vermont, New York, Florida and Maine.

Artist Statement

Beautiful form, creative use of negative space and illusion of movement are hallmarks of my bronze sculptures. Working in contemporary realism and with timeless subject matter, I frequently simplify shapes and sometimes idealize form to achieve my artistic intent. My goal is to interpret beauty for myself and all who view my creation, as I strive to communicate through sculpture the essence, even the soul, of living forms.

My body of work includes figurative, animal, birds and “antique” musical instruments, which I frequently mount on indigenous stone bases. I cast my bronzes using the multi-step ancient lost wax method, which begins with constructing the original in clay over an armature, progressing to wax, and ultimately casting into bronze. Molds are made between each stage.

My roots of inspiration are my lifelong love of nature, art and music. I live close to nature in rural Vermont providing exposure to such living subject matter as horses, llamas, goats, moose, birds, deer, fox, and turkeys. I draw upon my accrued knowledge of human anatomy gained as a R.N. to enhance my figurative work. I was raised in a family that both valued art and played classical music. Thus, I speak from my inner voice, reflecting my past and communicating through sculpture, our human connectedness with all living creatures.

Below are Michael’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 25 of his landscape paintings. We hope that you will take the time to read Michael’s information and to take a look at his art.

Artist Biography

Michael Gault has known he wanted to be an artist from the age of seven. While other boys were out playing sports, he was taking art courses focused on learning to draw. He has experimented with many visual art forms and is adept with most of them, but oil painting is his calling. He is a classically trained Colorado Artist with two studio degrees, a BFA in from the Kansas City Art Institute and an MA in Fine Art from the University of Missouri in Kansas City.

The creative process excites Michael. He enjoys any activity that allows him to utilize the left side of his brain and his imagination. Spatial orientation and visualization allow his inventive nature to construct serenity and drama in his mind, and his use of essential painting techniques transfer those mind-moments into his landscapes.

Gault has an extensive exhibition history throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Missouri, Kansas and California and has won many awards in juried events and regional competitions, throughout the years. Over 125 of his paintings are featured in The Arrabelle at Vail Square, a luxury hotel & spa in Vail, CO. He has taught college art and graphic designs course in three states as well as workshops and seminars on painting, drawing, printmaking and building a portfolio. He has a YouTube channel that is presented from his studio with practical and professional information for artists early in their creative journeys.

Artist Statement

The Artist Statement is intended to express my interest and love of art, for both the process as well as the challenge. I love the creative process, whether it is painting representational landscapes or plein‐air works or creating free‐ association non‐representational paintings, it is all about the process.

I know that the artist process of problem solving and self‐discovery is always evolutionary and compelling. I believe all creative endeavors are life‐affirming expressions of the human experience. I have been in my artistic journey for 50 years now, and I am as excited and passionate about art today as I was at the beginning of my journey. The evolutionary aspects of painting contribute to my individual growth fueling my creative fire.

The process of painting is physically fulfilling – the way the paint feels when it is being applied and the gestural quality of painting is unlimited. I believe creativity should be shared not only through commercial patronage, also with the sharing of this creative experience and the process of art making. I believe that it is vital for individual artists to gather and share ideas and to discuss problems. I learn whether I am the student or the teacher. And I believe that the creative experience isn’t fulfilled until a spectator views the painting and is able to interact with it.

Maureen Ravnik was born and raised in Minnesota. She attended the University of Colorado to pursue a career in sales & marketing.

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 placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local, national, international juried photography exhibitions, monthly club competitions, and state park calendars.

Artist Statement

My methods and techniques are largely self-taught. I am deeply inspired by the work of Ansel Adams and Art Wolfe. My work is also derived from my imagination. My greatest satisfaction comes from taking the file from camera to computer to develop composites. The results reflect my personal feelings, beliefs, events, culture, etc. that are best expressed through artistic interpretations. My work is delivered in an array of styles that arc between realism, passionately abstract and doggedly figurative. These diverse styles are represented in my Solo Art Series submission.

As an artist, I'm perpetually evolving, embracing new mediums to challenge my creativity.

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 25th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

Below are Robert’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 20 of his photographs.  We hope that you will take the time to read Robert’s information and to take a look at his beautiful “Life Along the Amazon” photography series.

Artist Biography

Robert first experience in photography was when he was offered the opportunity to be mentored in 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 turned his focus to nature and street photography; areas in which he directs his viewer to see the relationship of the arts and sciences and where he uses the digital darkroom to emulate archival techniques of film photography such as the orotype developed by Edward Curtis.

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 on-line galleries via competitions and in solo exhibits at St. Louis Artist Guild, Bradley University, at EuroBiotech Conference in Poznan, Poland, 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 on-line gallery.

Artist Statement

The photograph must tell a story, not just the story seen by the photographer, but the story read through the imagination of the viewer, it is a pictorial novel. It has a purpose and like a book it becomes a storage place of ideas and events and a teaching tool. In 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 also can 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 also are much the same and that we should see this sameness as we address worldly issues. I try to show this through photography of indigenous peoples in their native culture, involved in their daily tasks of living.

The photographic technique used by Edward Curtis and contemporary photographers to capture the story and history of native Americans as they were driven from their lands onto reservations in the late 1800’s has my attention. This method of the orotype or gold type photograph brings the viewer’s eye to the main element of the photograph while subduing the background and opens the imagination to his or her reading of the story being told.

Robert’s work can be viewed on his website.

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.

Nic’s work can be viewed on her website.

Below are Adam’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 20 of his digital artworks.  We hope that you will take the time to read Adam’s information and to take a look at his artwork.

Artist Biography

Adam Strange is a Canadian pixel-based artist plumbing the depths of the human condition, exploring the dark recesses of human behaviour and the effects of societal entropy. He started his art career during the mid-eighties, exhibiting locally in Southwestern Ontario, such as in the 1987 London Ontario exhibition "Homage to Marcel Duchamp on the occasion of the centennial of his birth" at the McIntosh gallery.

Adam graduated from the Ontario College of Art (OCA) in 1992 with a focus on magic-realism and old master technique under the direction and guidance of OCA professor Carmen Cereceda, a Chilean muralist who was once an assistant of Diego Rivera. He was also mentored by his father, an artist and contemporary of Tony Tascona and Takao Tanabe from the Winnipeg School of Art. Adam pursued fine art until around 1996 when he was in demand for his graphic design services full time.

In 2018, Adam refocused his life back to fine art, and has since seen his tools change from traditional materials into the digital realm, but the vision has remained the same… challenging viewers to question the world around them and to live in a world of their own making.

Adam is a member of the National Association of Digital Artists (naDA) and the Canadian Artists’ Representation/Le Front des artistes canadiens (CARFAC). Adam was Publicity Director for the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA) 2022-2023.

Artist Statement

These visual artefacts are made in the “Age of Anxiety” where truth and lies are indistinguishable, issues and attitudes are binary, and the perils of conflict and intimacy result in the separation of the self from the physical.

The images reflect our anxious world through a process of digital painting, photomontage or “image dubbing.” These visual narratives are sojourns where time and memory, feelings and perspectives, manifest as physical places or situations showing the “Essentia” - the world as it really is.

Aldous Huxley, the British writer, once wrote, “There are things known, and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” I create my art in that space between the known and unknown. The space is made of the thin unreliability of memory and shards of lived experience, which are reconstructed into stark forms and landscapes, resulting in nuanced, disturbing and sensual images.

The pieces are journeys from the purely aesthetic to a sacramental vision. There is a discordant beatific vision in the absence of colour, which engenders a lack of visual and emotional information. The removal of this content from the picture requires the viewer to confront a stark reality immediately. Light and shade, and what is revealed from the blackness become the primary language for interpreting the image.

These are images of realism. By turns, demanding, fearful, and disorienting. They are fit representations of the times we live in.

Below are Debra’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 18 of her paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read Debra’s information and to take a look at her beautiful “Bather Series” of paintings.

Artist Biography

From the intense, diverse energy of New York, Debra creates powerful narrative works drawn from her imagination. Her work is bold, whimsical, colorful and symbolic. Her color palette is inspired by the intense light of the southern hemisphere of her youth. Under vivid blue skies, nature’s colors pulsate with life. She is drawn to the unnatural juxtaposition of images and fantasy. Whimsy is often expressed through symbolic use of native birds. If studied closer these become the energy, the clue as to the tone of the narrative. Debra uses the exotic floral natives, like the Waratah, morphed with the human form to create haunting yet striking images.

Originally from Sydney, Australia, she grew up a bare foot youth exploring nature in all its' forms. A pencil or paintbrush her voice. Debra then went on to study life drawing and portraiture at The Paddington Art School in Sydney. Her fascination with the figure combined with her passion for dance led to dynamic figurative pieces where the subject almost leaps off the canvas. Executed in oil on canvas her stimulating symbolic paintings are rich with vibrant color. Early in her career she took to travel overseas, settling for a year in Mexico to devote to her art. Around that time her work became infused with an almost decorative carnival quality. This led to paintings now held in private collections internationally.

Artist Statement

My bather series places an unposed figure in a surreal cocoon of nature. My creative language are the ocean inlets and vegetation of my Australian roots. I chose a vintage bather in my series to reflect a timelessness. There's a longing for a world that used to feel safe. I chose expressive color to enhance the mood of the narrative. The Native Portrait series is an expression of years of being masked. The Australian native birds chosen for each portrait, speaks to the personality of the sitter, their face hidden behind the floral mask.

Debra’s work can be viewed on her website.

Artist Biography

Deimante Bruzguliene was born in Lithuania on May 20, 1980 and came to the United Kingdom in 2004. Her love of all animals started at a very young age. She was always keen to rescue animals. 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.

Deimante’s work can be viewed on her website.

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

Artist Biography

James Su (Lingfeng) is a contemporary artist known for his use of digital coding in his artwork. Born in Shanghai, he entered the Shanghai Art Institute to study art, laying a solid base for his art skills. He started his art career as a freelance illustrator. His illustrations have been published in many books and magazines.

In 1985, he came to the United States to study engineering and obtained his MS and Ph.D. He published many books and his work has been exhibited in galleries and museums many galleries and museums around the world. he was a professor at three universities.

Currently, Dr. Su resides in the San Francisco Bay Area. Su's interest in the intersection of art and technology led him to experiment with using AI to create art. His artwork often explores the relationship between humans and machines and seeks to highlight the unique creative possibilities that emerge when we collaborate with AI. This submittal to LST is one of Su's projects called the "Hospitals in the Pandemic" painting series, which was completed in collaboration with AI. The series explores both the potential of AI in creating artwork with humanistic themes and the limitations of AI in capturing the emotional depth of human experience. Overall, Su's work challenges traditional notions of art and creativity and raises important questions about the role of technology in shaping the future of the arts.

Artist Statement

"Hospitals in the Pandemic" is a series of paintings created by James Su in collaboration with artificial intelligence (AI). While AI is often used for commercial art, it is rare to see it used for humanistic themes in artworks.

With the COVID-19 pandemic causing widespread devastation, Su sought to create a series of paintings that would capture the experiences of patients, doctors, nurses, and family members in hospitals during this time. The resulting AI paintings were completed under the guidance and training of the artist, with AI producing successful works that feature clever compositions, harmonious color themes, and accurate depictions of figurative characters.

In addition, AI developed a unique self-painting style that blends post-impressionism, expressionism, and Fauvism in a way that is both innovative and true to the artist's vision. Su examines whether AI has emotions through its works. While artists typically infuse their work with their own emotions and experiences, AI lacks these qualities. The paintings in the series reflect this, with characters depicted as relatively indifferent and lacking in emotional depth.

However, the question remains whether AI can be trained to develop emotions as it gains knowledge and experience. This exploration of AI's emotional capabilities raises fascinating questions about the intersection of art and technology.

The paintings in the series showcase the unique creative possibilities that emerge when humans collaborate with AI, while also highlighting the limitations and challenges that arise when we attempt to imbue machines with human-like qualities.

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 24th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

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.
