EDITOR’S NOTE When we made the decision to take 1340 quarterly, rather than monthly, we did it with the quality of the magazine and the art it contains in mind. Taking more time to assemble the magazine and to engage with our community on social media has meant that this issue has taken shape around the art, rather than print deadlines or availability. Our goal from now on is to use the magazine as a platform for artists you’ve heard of, and artists we think you should get to know. Through our print editions and online presence we are building a community of artists and connoisseurs from all over the world, and showcasing a diverse collection of styles, influences and processes. You can use our new directory to get in touch with the artists that inspire you in this issue, and check out our agenda (Page 27) for the events we’re most looking forward to in the coming months.

This issue showcases the work of 70 artists, from 16 different countries and the number of submissions we received has been overwhelming (in the best way possible.) I want to personally thank each and every contributor for letting us showcase their work. Until next time,

Roy Owh, Editor in Chief

1340ART | 1


Blue, as an adjective, has two meanings: “melancholy, sad, depressed,” or, alternatively, “of a colour intermediate between green and violet, as of the sky or sea on a sunny day.” Found in small supply and sought after voraciously, blue pigments carry a rich history of invention, trade, and artistic workarounds. From the first synthetic pigments created in Ancient Egypt to new hues discovered in the past decade, blue has a prominent place in the history and future of art. Here, the viewer is free to choose whether to infer melancholy, or the resolute happiness of a blue sky on a summer’s day. Perhaps it is most logical to read both. After all, how reliable is it that a blue sky won’t cloud over and turn the sea a forbidding, steely grey?

W HY DID SHE DO T HA T ? The paintings of Emily Williams-Wheeler are, in her own words, “expressive, with powerful colors, mood, motion, intricacies, and mysteries.” Her work gives off an air of mystery, teasing the imagination of the viewer. The textures are attention grabbing and deliberately beg the question “Why did she do that?” Her encaustic and acrylic works are exciting and undeniably alive, sometimes even writhing with implied organic movement. Williams-Wheeler uses colour in a way that makes her work immediately appealing to the untrained eye, whilst also prompting the viewer to probe deeper into the complexity and technique in her pieces. The combination of ancient techniques and modern sensibilities creates irresistable colour palletes and conveys a sense of quiet confidence in the bombastic shapes and shapes that make the viewer think. In a very real sense, there is little passivity in her pieces, as their emotional, bright complexity asks us to experience them, rather than just taking a look.

Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Dom Czepiga spent his adolescence in Anderson, South Carolina before relocating to Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, which he has called home for the past twenty years. Fascinated with art from a very early age, some of his greatest influences have been Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein and Dr. Seuss. As a self-taught artist he has worked with various mediums, including photography, watercolor, acrylic, pencil, ink, mixed media, digital and vector. His works are contemporary, bold, colorful pieces with an ‘in your face’ attitude. They range from thought provoking statement pieces to homages of artistic legends to abstract female models. The intention is for the observer to see something in his work that sparks conversation, or simply to admire the beauty of a piece that they would be proud to showcase in their home. Czepiga aims to take his art full time, and emulate one of his great heroes, Dr. Seuss, who, coincidentally was also born in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Miriam Carmack -Lost Boy Clay - 68 x 46 x 33 cm

Born in 1963, in Belgium, Natalie Corman grew up in Canada. She cites her parents and grandparents, all successful painters, as her greatest inspiration, and reveals that it was her mother who encouraged her to experiment with different materials and media.

Carmack’s interest lies in the human mind, human emotions, and, above all, the human experience. An aspiring art therapist, she is currently traveling the world creating art which focuses on perceptions: perceptions of others, and perceptions of self.

A PLACE OF BEAUTY Myriam Guenaizia creates poetry through colour, crafting emotional, dynamic interpretations of the world around her.

C l o c k w i s e f r o m L e f t : V a l d e o r r a s ( D e t a i l ) - Oil on Canvas - 80 x 80cm / Vo i l e s I n s e n s e e s - Oil on Canvas - 90 x 90cm / S u r L ’ i l e S o l e i l - Oil on Canvas - 50 x 50cm / P a r f u m d u M o n d e Oil on Canvas - 150 x 100cm

Myriam GuenaĂŻzia can be counted amongst those artists who take great liberties with color. At a very early age she reports developing a visual appreciation of art that was put into practice through an apprenticeship in plastic art as well as in Art History courses. The fruit of this being her first exhibit under the Spanish sun. These first works of art were the corner stone of her future artistic maturity. Her style is unique and immediately identifiable; firm, structured, established and tonic. It is the intelligent balance of the geometric rigor inspired by Viera da Silva, with a juxtaposition of poetic grace. From each one of her paintings emanates a joyful and overflowing dynamism that is contagious. All subjects inspire this energy and are tangible proofs that everything can serve as inspiration. Myriam reveals to the beholder of her works the invisible and the noble. More than ever today, her painting is the indispensable means for expressing her unique interpretation of the world around her. By holding on to her liberty and autonomy, she has preserved her talent and her uniqueness. She resembles no other. Within the cocoon of her workshop, fulfillment is at the tip of her paintbrush. She hints at a subject, exasperates it with color, giving free rein to her imagination. But above all, and though she has established her place as an artist in her own right, what remains closest still to her heart is that through her eyes the world becomes a place of beauty.

EKATERINA MARMY Paper Artist from St. Gallen, Switzerland, Ekaterina Marmy creates filigree artworks “painted” with paper stripes instead of a brush. From distance, the artworks blur the lines between brush strokes and 3 dimensional shapes. and create a three-dimensional effect. The colours, from discreet to bright play with contrast and ensures the harmony of her compositions. To create this particular work took her approximately 15-20 hours. Her artworks feature exotic notes inspired by Asia and a touch of romance. Inspired by nature, this skilled paperwork is challenging and complex, whilst at the same time maintaining a sense of joy and fun.

Off the Canvas Japanese Garden Paper Art 3D - 34 x 27 cm

Diane Roe is a Montreal based artist who has been experimenting with various methods and techniques to create paintings not constrained by the 90 Degree angles of a canvas. Inspired by the colours of popular computer art and video games of the early 90s, the artist’s goal is to recreate the calculated yet kitsch essence of that technology with the archaic artistic methods of paint. Through this she creates an object of art, rather than ‘just’ a painting.
