EDITOR’S NOTE Welcome to the Q2 edition of 1340ART Magazine! I am extremely excited about this issue, as it marks the transition into a new era for 1340Art. We have decided that instead of pursuing or following trends, we owe it to you, our readers, as well as the artists we feature, to go further, explore deeper and bring about new discoveries. We could do it better. With that, we started planning what soon became a fantastic and somewhat groundbreaking project as the next progressive stage for 1340Art – the 1340Foundation. As an organization founded by artists, it has always been top of mind to create a platform for emerging artists to showcase their work. What better way to assist in accomplishing this mission, than to support various non-profit art organizations from all over the world in their pursuit to do the same! Proceeds from our magazine competition therefore provide backing for these organizations in aid of promoting both young artists and those who have been underrepresented in their career, but who deserve championing. We believe that by empowering these artists, we are contributing to stronger communities, and helping raise public awareness.

As we know, art is subjective. It is the expression of an individual’s innermost space and feeling, but requires the artist’s work to captivate and resonate with an audience. Yet, no matter who that audience is, art is engaged in an exploration of our world. We therefore try hard not to reflect any one particular style or discipline. Striking a balance with what we publish is harder than you may think though. It means reviewing hundreds of submissions, looking always for the hidden gems and ensuring that when we develop each new edition, we feature some more well-known artists of our moment, alongside stunning upcoming talents of the world. We strive to include varying styles and processes, whilst still maintaining the quality of the content we provide to our readers. The 1340ART magazine team has been enthralled and enraptured discovering the various artists and artwork which we have featured in this issue. We think you will be too.

Roy Owh, Editor in Chief

BIRGIT HUTTEMANN-HOLZ

In 2014, Birgit was awarded first place at the national NANA Competition at Lucky Street Gallery, Key West, FL and was granted a month long residency at The Studios of Key West. In 2017 she packed her studio and transferred her life to the subtropical beautiful island. On the first day she passed a yard that was abundantly embellished by orchids. Immediately Birgit was put under the spell of those beautiful flowers. They resembled swaying gorgeous color dots with a profound sense of vulnerability. From that day on, she only printed orchids, lush gardens and imaginary spaces. Sanctuaries that have the power to stop time and let you reset.

W E ST

West is predominantly a plein air painter, which means she prefers to work outdoors, on site. She likes working spontaneously and responding directly to her environment. When the weather isn’t suitable West then works from her studio where she explores the art of still life and portraiture. She also regularly produces street scenes from her studio. At times Sally is drawn to views that she is unable to produce on site because of the access. West uses oil paint and applies it with a palette knife. The only time Sally uses a brush is when she is working with ink on paper. Oil painting is her passion. She is constantly striving for her best work and always learning from doing.

Chasm (Left) Dead Ringer III (Right) Collage on Paper - 30 x 24 cm, 35 x 24 cm

SOPHIE VANHOMWEGEN Sophie uses collage techniques to generate an alienating and highly surrealistic universe that reflects on the overflow of manipulated images surrounding us. She believes that through the images found in advertisement we are told what is beautiful or sexy, what is ugly or despicable.The artist reflects on these matters by changing roles. She becomes the one who manipulates the images instead of being manipulated.The artist criticises the absurdness of repetitive messages spread through advertisement by revealing the act of manipulation instead of trying to hide it.

Poluektova’s series “Absence” was started five years ago during a road trip in the USA when the artist stayed with her boyfriend in motels just for one night and then continued spending time in other places. These blueprints represent the anthropological traces of unconscious movements during the dreams which have been redeveloped again manually on paper. Masha has captured moments of mental absence, but at the same time confirmed being physically in a space.

Emerson’s

approach to art is about exploring the effortless and spontaneous qualities of nature through scribbling, mark making, and other expressionist techniques in a variety of media. The resulting layers of paint and paper address themes that deal with interconnectivity, continual motion and order vs. chaos. The work is also a testament to the ways in which art records individual experience, i.e., psychological states, layers of emotion, and interpretations of reality. The process is intuitive and personal. It contrasts

AN EXPLORATION OF NATURE the attitude of organic forms frozen in time to the vibrant energy of the brushstroke. The collage elements are obtained through drawing, photography, or scanning, then sometimes digitally altered. Working with a range of media, including acrylic paints, various qualities of paper, and different types of pastels and pencils helps to achieve a complex, textured finish. A native of Virginia Beach, Virginia, Emerson has been painting and exhibiting since her first art fair in France in 1993. In addition to painting, photography, mixed media, and jewelry, she has worked extensively in digital marketing, designing online promotional and educational materials for art galleries, non-profits, and healthcare organizations. Marlowe has also gained valuable experience as an art educator, both in private schools in France and at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. She currently works out of her home studio, affectionately known as Sharp Corner.

Today the curated self-portrait as a social media commodity has made portraiture part of the throw-away culture. In response to this B-Brown and Scheinmann were inspired to make a more considered portrait with layers of narrative. Starting by taking photographs of people with whom they have a strong connection, the images are adorned using materials and techniques that tell a story about the person while playfully referring to familiar contemporary iconography. Photographic prints are transformed into three dimensions using paints, inks, collage, and sculptural techniques and then further augmented with postproduction technology. The resulting images are heightened “Meta-portraits�; and as such they are much more than a traditional photographic portrait, they are passionate and inspired constructed depictions.

SEYED ASADOLLAH

SHARIATPANAHI 53 | 1 3 4 0 A R T


S

eyed Asadollah Shariatpanahi was born in 1938 in Semnan, Iran. His talent and interest in painting was discovered early on in life. Between 1965-1967 he moved towards realism in his paintings. Seyed Asadollah became increasingly interested in portraiture, and painted famous characters. When Professor Fazlollah Reza became the dean of his school,Tehran University, the previous (traditional) milieu of the university gave way to modernity and Shariatpanahi was encouraged to utilize these modern techniques. In the 1960s modernity was a new horizon in the sky of the Iranian art. In 1969, when he finished his bachelor study, Seyed Asadollah returned to his hometown, Semnan, and started his job in the organization of education for Teachers. He also taught art at the Center of Intellectual Training for Children and Teenagers, which led to the birth of a new generation of artists who now hold their own spectacular artistic positions. In his early work in 1970s, Seyed Asadollah was impacted by Cubism. The human body in a variety of different configurations and viewpoints was the main focus of his

ART & WAR artworks. He continued this in the same manner until the Islamic Revolution in 1979, when Iranian society experienced profound changes in the political regime. Changes were experienced in every section of social life, including the visual arts. During this period after the revolution till the end of Iran-Iraq war, government was against any sort of modernism. Seyed Asadollah was banned for a year from serving in the organization of education and had to stop painting to save his life. In 1997 when the reformists’ period started and huge development in contemporary Iranian art happened, Shariatpanahi benefited from a relaxation of the rules and thus re-started his paintings. The golden period of his career began after 2000 by entering into his new-found Iranian-modernity paintings. His artworks after 2000 include both a modern system of thought along with a traditional paradigm of thinking. Asadollah Shariatpanahi now lives in Semnan where he continues to teach painting to his students at his own art gallery. He is considered one of the most celebrated Iranian painters of all time.

The series “Boundaries Lost and Found” is about physical and emotional boundaries on an energetic level. Think about the moment when you’ve kept so still and have become so relaxed that you can no longer feel where your body ends and the space around you begins. Like all of your atoms are spreading out and floating away. Maybe this is why setting emotional boundaries is so hard. There’s not a strict “us and them,” “this or that,” “me vs. you.” Energy is fluid, we are space and we are movement. It’s not in our nature to be contained. Flores paints what she would want this tiny science to look like.

ART

START

Art Start was founded in 1991, when a

small group of motivated artists decided to meet with children living in New York City homeless shelters to create art together. Over the past 26 years and with the help of more than 11,700 volunteers and teaching artists, Art Start has brought the creative process to more than 23,000 underserved youth, and has become an award-winning, nationally recognized model for transforming young lives. Today, we bring creative arts workshops and Emerging Artist mentorship opportunities to children and youth living in homeless, domestic violence, runaway, and young mother-and-child shelters throughout New York City, as well as secure and non-secure detention programs for court-involved youth. Our programmatic goals are founded on solid research that shows that art programs for youth, especially those who have been impacted by turbulence, poverty, and other traumas, have the power to increase academic performance, decrease juvenile delinquency, increase self-esteem, and lead to more positive interactions with peers.

Creative arts give children the opportunity to grow and develop self-awareness through self-expression, which has been proven to reduce stress and accelerate psychological and physical healing. Art Start uses a student-centered approach to education. Our workshops instill in our youth the confidence to appreciate who they already are and what they innately have to offer the world; then, to think critically, ask important questions, and pursue meaningful opportunities in life – against all odds. Our creative workshops are structured to support consistency, build resilience, and provide direction to youth going through a time of challenging transition. By using art and music projects that focus on the outlet for expression, kids are free to build trusting relationships with our teaching artists naturally, learning to open up and bond in ways not possible through the social service or traditional education model. Though they face many obstacles, our kids have dreams that far surpass their circumstances. They yearn to be participants and make meaningful contributions. Art Start teaches kids how to survive their own lives with confidence, creativity, and hope, and learn to transform a time of instability and transition into a time for personal growth and development.

Her drawings and paintings are filled with brilliant blue skies and giant yellow suns. There are trees in her imaginary gardens that are laden with enormous red fruit. She shows us her finished masterpieces with a smile that melts our hearts. She is six years old, and she lives in a domestic violence shelter.

SOPHIE SWAN Swan’s work is best described as a textile painting. It is created by hand-weaving natural fibres into loose fabric, which is then layered over a painted canvas. The painting peeks through gaps in the weaving, visually blending colours. Due to this, the artwork can take on different personalities depending on the available light or the direction and distance of the viewer. The compositions of her work are inspired by the everyday environment, especially colours found in nature and how they can conjure up memories or capture you in a moment.

The Wanderer #1: Waiting was a sculptural installation and performance piece comprised of a twelve by three-meter white wooden wall positioned across a red-earth dirt road. Dressed in a Jewish burial robe, the ritualistic work commenced at dusk with the ringing of the Buddhist singing bowl. From there Greener walked around the wall barefoot for 10 hours, as the wall transformed under the full moon night sky. With the further ringing of the singing bowl at dawn to symbolise the end of the ritual, Greener set fire to the wall, leaving only ash and cinders. A powerful symbol about letting go of physical object and returning the land back to how it was. Greener’s art is created with the intention to be exhibited outside the conventional gallery space. He aims to bring art to a new audience by bringing people ‘out into nature’ to witness art, to witness a performance outside the traditional boundaries of both gallery and urban frameworks.
