EDITOR’S NOTE What is art? No one can provide a definite right or wrong answer to this question. In fact, sometimes, some things can’t be defined, only felt. As the saying goes ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’, and never has a statement been truer than with art. The idea itself is fluid, ever evolving and changing. In fact, art and the role it played in my life changed immensely throughout the years. Art, I have come to see, is very much like falling in love. First, came infatuation. The new discoveries with each encounter, much like getting to know a person. With each new colour combination, each different stroke of the brush, my heart swelled with joy. Like a beautiful, blossoming romance, I had seen and experienced something magical for the first time. Back then, I didn’t think too much about why I liked art, I just knew it was stirring a kind of passion inside me. Then, my love of art grew into something more. I began to develop a relationship with it, learning the theories, and understanding what it meant to convey a message through art. I was obsessed with getting to know more, learn more. I didn’t care about the good or the bad; I just knew I wanted more. I craved it. Expanding my knowledge in this taught me that actually, our response to art always depends on what we know—which includes factual knowledge about the world, cultural knowledge, knowledge gained from personal experiences, and even knowledge about the art process itself.

respond to artworks. As one who tries to create “art”, it is rather satisfying when an image elicits strong feelings and emotions in others. When it inspires those who view it. Most recently, my relationship with art has become a part of my identity, and I find it almost impossible now to distinguish between art and myself. I can’t imagine life without it, and just like when two people are together for long enough, the I’s end up melting into We’s. The relationships that flourish are those that allow you to grow and improve, even if through a bit of difficulty. In a similar way, despite the somewhat less of an infatuated thrill with which I used to approach art, I’ve gained experience and I have grown as a person. I have realized even more so that art is a medium of expression. It is like a second heart, beating alongside my own. I have come to see that as such, art can be extremely powerful. As I have grown older, so has my knowledge of various types of art and the copious amount of statements that you can make through it. I hope that with this edition, and our wide variety of styles and methods showcased, we will keep you inspired. Keep you craving the thrill of a first (art) kiss. From collage and acrylic paintings; traditional oils and exciting mixed media; watercolours and coloured pencils to painting and photography, we believe everyone can fall in love, as they admire the aesthetics so exceptionally portrayed by the art in these pages.

People say love is blind; but this love opened my eyes to something else entirely. This incessant love of art was, for me, an opportunity to explore the creative process as well as a way of understanding how viewers

WOLFGANG BOHUSCH

With his series ‘silicon based creatures’ Bohusch invites the viewer to stand in front of his photographs, meditate, and let the mind wander into subconsciousness. The series of 21 photographs presented at OSME Gallery is the outcome of his stay in the Sahara desert experimenting with its elements like sand, wind, light, and chance. What you see on the photographs is thus the fusion of elements which serendipitously form into sculptures and are randomly captured on paper. The process behind these snapshots therefore resembles the behaviour patterns of bird or fish swarms. Silicon Based Creatures 2262 (Top Left) Photography - 140 x 112 cm

JACK

CL A R KE This work was produced to highlight a theory. The theory states that a better understanding of the makers intent has a positive effect on a viewer’s appreciation of an object, and, therefore, an increase in the perception of value within said object. Even though the art objects appear to have ‘genuine’ value, the fact that they lack practical utility in their assigned role as eating utensils implies an absence of value; that they should not be appreciated. However, the art objects were created with the express intent to achieve this goal; to function poorly in comparison to standard pieces of cutlery. If the art objects do not function as well as standard cutlery, then the value of the artwork comes from how well they achieve their intended purpose, in this case, by what degree is the practical utility of the art objects worse than that of the originals? Without prior knowledge of their intended purpose, even though the viewer holds something essentially valuable within their hands, they tend to be frustrated when using these eating utensils...

E MI R ‘

R A MOV I C As a self-taught Painter, with a Master degree in Architecture, Ramovic experimented in the last decade with different methods of design, painting and drawing techniques, always questioning the perception concepts behind it. Lead by the inner desire, his main artistic interest is directed to the exploration and discovery of the inner world and its connection and influence on our surrounding and ultimately on ourselves. The intertwined path of the architect and the painter has been paved with his own artistic work, a long-standing commitment to teaching, interdisciplinary artistic-research projects, writing and film making, always pushing his own creativity. His work is an attempt to explore, study and understand the journey to the inner worlds. In search for new dimensions, fragments of emotions, intuition and knowledge.

“The glow of the approaching sun drew me outside this morning, the view off our balcony with the jetty, glass calm water was breathtaking. It definitely had an effect on Rebecca’s creative mojo.Then I realised it was the same morning, but last week, of her passing. At the moment there are over 50 large post-it notes stuck to the windows with bits of the movie she was co-writing with a man from the Filmmaker’s Guild in Hollywood. The hours of work are displayed, it’s beautiful to see. I can go on about her all day. She was in a process of evolving, mixing it up, changing her Boopse logo, adapting, learning photoshop... Yeah, Rebecca loved it. . When Rebecca and I first met she was editing the 7th and final episode of her documentary about The Great Aussie BBQ. She was a mysterious girl, not many people actually new her real name. She was magic. I feel her art can give more, even after Death. Enjoy her space, you’ll come out of the day enlightened.”

Coriolis (Left) Unfired Clay - 243.8 x 209.2 x 7.6 cm

Offset Flow (Above) Ceramic, Walnut - 40.6 x 53.8 x 3.2 cm

Almelo’s practice is a reflection on the power of the natural world. The time that Alida puts into creating a piece is as important to them as the time that it exists. Natural occurrences such as the changing position of the sun in the sky alter the work’s appearance and create unique and unrepeatable experiences. Working with unfired clay, Almelo builds site-specific installations, and as the clay dries, it shrinks. The constant movement of the sun and the clay mirror the changes that we see around us daily, and natural properties of clay speak directly to the fluctuating world around us. While using clay, Almelo places trust in the material, knowing that how it reacts will-at its core-speak more perfectly to the concepts of time, movement and transition than anything that Almelo could create entirely alone.

SA SH A

ZHIT N E VA Sasha Zhitneva is a sculptor who makes consistently innovative art from the collision of disparate materials and the clash between tradition and modern life. Her most recent work involves the fusion of discarded plastic containers and art glass, which has led to a number of visually stunning, thematically rich series. Among these collections, there is no shortage of striking effects; baffling but fascinating textures (the stuff of countless associations and thought-provoking tangents); and fully realized, utterly self-contained individual pieces. A key idea percolating beneath all of Zhitneva’s work is that all materials exist in a social context, burdened with layers of history, socioeconomic factors, and cultural meaning/associations (including prejudices/ enduring misconceptions), all of which contribute to the way these materials are generally perceived. Indeed, Zhitneva’s work is many things. Above all, though, it is a testament to her advanced technique and singular vision. Memor y Altitude (Left) Sculpture/Mixed Media - 33 x 30.5 x 20.3 cm

By feeding positive meaning, with the idealized importance of struggle and suffering; he identifies himself through elements such as food that have marked him. By giving a positive meaning to the ideals of fighting and suffering; Opoku Mensah identifies himself through elements, such as the taste, the smell and texture of food. In his path towards inner happiness, his endeavor ascertains warmth and hospitality.

What interests Drab is exploration and the unknown, the moment when something hidden comes out into existence through art and by common work of hand and mind. Through observation and by memorizing experiences Martyna tries to create something that should speak directly into human core and intuition. The openess of the mediums allows Drab to explore shapes, colours and marks so they become intense and solid composition that plays out harmonically or at least denotes something interesting or disturbing.

ARTS Free Arts uses art to restore hope, resiliency and self-esteem in children in Los Angeles ages 4-18 who have experienced abuse, neglect, poverty and/or homelessness.

Free Arts creates a safe environment where children can feel, understand and express their emotions and begin to recover and gain a sense of mastery and empowerment. They pair children with adult mentors who serve as a positive role model with whom the child has a beneficial, rather than traumatic relationship. Their programs take children through a journey of empowerment, focusing on “Process over Product”. This means that art is a tool for restoring self-esteem, resiliency and hope, rather than Free Arts teaching children to produce attractive or technically sound art pieces. Art is used as a process to develop and cultivate leadership skills, self-esteem, resiliency, and a belief in a positive future. Process oriented art includes creating writing, poetry, painting, drawing, or other art. Children who grow up with abuse and poverty many times unwittingly repeat the pat-

terns of behavior in which they were raised, experiencing mental illness, addiction, abusive relationships, teenage pregnancy and criminal behavior as adults. Most will not go to college and many will never graduate high school, putting their futures at risk. Studies show that engaging in art – dance, music, drawing, painting, writing or other art forms – restores resiliency and self-esteem in children and gives them a chance for a better future. Art has been found to uniquely develop certain areas of the brain in children, particularly critical thinking, cognitive function and other skills needed for a successful future. Free Arts was founded in 1977 to bring art to children in foster homes in order to help them recover from the abuse and trauma they had suffered. Today Free Arts provides creative arts programs to more than 22,000 children in Los Angeles annually. Programs are implemented by expert trained facilitators with the assistance of nearly 200 adult volunteer mentors, who donate more than 14,000 hours every year.

MIRRE YAYLA SEUR

When Memor y Enters, a Midwife as a Metaphor Cleaning Cloths, Glass, & Metal - 340 x 258 cm

Mirre Yayla Seur’s drawings, audio, video and installations evoke questions about the body, but whose body and where it begins and ends are left open. Focussed on the encounter and the shaping factors around us, Mirre aims to investigate the dynamic relation of how she personally, and we as humans, relate to our outside world. Working with a vast array of materials from glass to metal, sand to textile Mirre blends together fragments that both reflect and absorb the residual traces of our very being.
