CONTENTS from the publisher

The magic we call ART - what is it? Why is that each time we stop to admire a work of art, whether it be a painting, sculpture, photography or other type of visual creation it makes us wonder? What gives us the impulse to enjoy art to which we have been drawn to by a kind of curiosity or perhaps a longing to connect to something outside of ourselves. Art is a visual interpretation of multiple feelings, thoughts, emotions - nature, waves created by wind, music, the thrill of running water in a brook and all the sounds around us are the things that unite into one creation called Art. What we see, what we feel, what we desire – all is there for us to enjoy and is created by one person, the Artist. Art & Beyond Magazine is proud to present the Summer Print Edition at Art Vancouver 2016. Featured in this issue are the incredibly talented artists. They come from different countries and from all walks of life, each possessing their own style, unique ideas, philosophical approach and vision of the world around us. Traditionally, the Art & Beyond Cover Competition is held for every issue where four artists are given the opportunity to be featured on four covers of the magazine.

Robin Apple Reminisce, Rebirth and the Horizon Line

REBIRTH 3. iPhonography, 24” x 24”

REBIRTH 12. iPhonography, 24” x 24” Bottom left

Last spring I made a solo road trip from California to Oregon and back, to retrace some steps of a journey that I first made two decades ago coinciding with the beginning of my professional career and the ending of requisite training experiences. The initial trip and my life at that stage 20 years ago, was all about broadening my horizons. On the second trip I was curious about what I would see and feel while looking back at the horizon from this vantage point. I created a series of images in a sepia-like color palette called “Reminisce” to reflect the gratitude, nostalgia and wonder that permeated the trip. As I completed this journey and began to look toward the next arc of my life, I became equally aware of the promise of rebirth and the attendant feelings of enthusiasm and wonder about what might lie ahead. With those feelings in mind, I reprocessed some of the same images from the Reminisce series in a new palette of bright colors to reflect my current state of mind and called it “Rebirth”. From the series of 20 images, I selected 5 to submit to the Art and Beyond Online cover competition. I used my iPhone6s plus to capture and process images, choosing a few post-processing applications that allowed me to add layers to connote the complexities of life as one looks forward and back, through colors, textures, shading and lighting. www.robinapplepeopleshots.com

Yorka Ralwins

“Just like life is a layer of events, my paintings are layers of colors” THE GATHERING. Acrylic, 36” x 36”

Yorka Ralwins (B. 1965, La Romana, Dominican Republic) an eclectic artist who began her painting life in 1999 when she opened a gift shop of hand-painted art in South Plainfield, New Jersey and set up her first studio next door where she taught painting to children, adults, and mentally challenged persons. Murals were her love during that period. She was also attracted by decorative and faux painting, which she incorporated into her business as a working painter. Exhibiting her personal artworks was never a consideration as she felt them too intimate to unveil to critics and the public. Moving to Florida changed that. South Florida awoke the artist with a purpose in her, and she was ready to step out of her cocoon.

VICTORIA. Acrylic, 55” x 39”

The figures, strokes, colors, and effects in her paintings are intended to strike an emotional involvement with the piece. Yorka intends to arouse memories and feelings, perhaps spiritual, which compel you to pause and wonder what her story is about. She calls it figurative expressionist work which gives her the freedom to set up a contradiction in the viewer’s mind that asks them to reconcile a familiar image with the sometimes unreal surroundings she places it in. She emigrated from the east coast of Dominican Republic to the United States in 1974 where she lived a number of years in New York City before marrying and moving to nearby New Jersey. She has three charming children and a golden grandson and currently lives in Port Saint Lucie, FL. At the present she is an in-house artist at Studio 17 Highwaymen & Florida Art Gallery in Fort Pierce, FL. www.yorkaralwins.com

SPRING FOREST 3. Oil on Canvas, 40” x 60”. Diptych

Rosy Lofer Rosy Lofer was born in Buenos Ares, Argentina. After moving to Miami in the mid 1980’s, Rosy developed a deep appreciation for art, and her passion was kindled by Miami’s rich cultural community. This passion for art, soon grew into a desire to not only appreciate fine art, but to create it from her own heart. In 2003, Rosy started to recognize her own talent for painting. She began her formal art education in 2004 with artist, Carlos Augusto Pereira at HeArt Studio. Under the direction of this internationally known artist, Rosy’s talent in artistic expression has been taken to new heights. Her magnificent and imaginative paintings captivate the viewer with their rich tones, vibrant color, and inspired themes. In discussing her work, Rosy says, “Creating each painting brings to me an incredible feeling of peace, tranquility, and positive energy. I believe these are the emotions that others feel when they look at my paintings”. Today, Rosy’s work can be found in private collections in many countries, including Israel, Brazil, Panama, Argentina, Canada, London and in many US States. Art Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Florida.

URANIA. Acrylic on Canvas, 48” x 48”. 2016 Botton right

The presented collaboration of two pronounced artists, a legendary Sotirios Gardiakos [Garsot] and Helen Kagan [Helen Kagan Healing Arts] is much more than just two artists working together. They define their unique concept as © SYNERGISM, and they invent it as they go. Their collaboration gives each artist’s individual gifts a new dimension, a new way to expand into something greater than just their own individual “selves”. The definition of Synergism – is that “the result of interaction of 2 [people, entities, agents] is GREATER than the sum of its parts”. Garsot and Kagan, create their unique Series by painting together, simultaneously, on the same canvas, without defined parameters or tasks, freely flowing, integrating their individual techniques, art forms, styles, intertwining, embracing and enhancing each other’s spontaneous colors and movement. Yet... always present in this process, there’s that completely authentic organic holistic Oneness with the Creator, Universe, Source - allowing them to just be “channels” for this amazing spontaneity and synchronicity, and deliver this colorful yummy powerful soulful healing experience to a viewer. Everything - bright colors, energetically balanced composition, ancient theme, embedded healing messages, and of course, the beauty of the Muses and the Music - all this creates an amazing ambiance full of Light, Love, Beauty, and Healing. “Muses and Music” Series will consist of 9 large square paintings (48”x48” ea), one for each of 9 Muses - bright, light, complex, spiritual, enigmatic, and just beautiful! We hope you too, find yourself gently guided to immerse into, relax and enjoy an embracing warmth, sparkling brilliance, powerful soulful experience and the healing vibrations of “Muses and Music”- a new unique “Healing Arts” Series by Garsot and Helen Kagan. www.garsot.com www.helenkagan.com

Ellie Manso Kane A DELIGHTFUL FUSION OF CULTURED ARTISTRY AND INSPIRATIONAL QUEST…

BRAZEN. Liquid Acrylic on Canvas, 30” x 40”. 2015

Ellie was born in Havana, Cuba and presently resides in South Miami, Florida. Her art conveys her inner journey through life – from her island roots where vibrancy, movement and intensity played a major role; to a sense of inquisition and discovery along her artistic path. The artist states: “Using an ancient and intriguing Eastern concept as my starting point, I focus on the acceptance of the transient and fleeting, or as depicted in my paintings, crispness and elusiveness. Wabi Sabi is the art of finding beauty in imperfection and, at its most basic; it symbolizes all things primitive and simple – impermanent and incomplete. The way my life took form after I left my country taught me that things may not always shape up as they are planned. Therefore, I have connected to this method of interpreting my insight and presence as I voice these feelings on canvas – always keeping in mind that strength can be found even in what is most seemingly frail.

12 • Art & Beyond • Summer Edition 2016

SERENADE. Liquid Acrylic on Canvas, 30” x 40“. 2015

My art acknowledges this principle as it pursues the fundamental essence of life itself, and as it uncovers a world of passionate and impulsive shapes and textures coming to life in abstract expression.” Ellie most recently successfully exhibited at Spectrum Miami in December of 2015, during Art Basel week. She has been invited to exhibit at Collage Gallery in Bigfork, Montana in July of 2016, where she will show her new series, Nidos and Webs. www.elliemansokane.com • ekane@bellsouth.net

FOOD IS THE GOD OF PEOPLE. Conceptual photography, 140 cm x 175 cm. 2014-2015

Born in Chongqing (China) in 1955. He graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute and currently works on conceptual photography, installation and oil painting. Now he lives and works at Chongqing, China. Approaching from the perspective of the relations existing in a multi-image reconstruction and semiotics, with the use of the contradiction and the connection among various cultural nodes, Fu Wenjun builds up his own cognitive fields on the culture and the history. The creation language of the artist is abstract; the combination of images, the transformation of figures, the crossover of the manifestation patterns make the meaning of the picture not to be determined just by words and thematic source materials, but they also graft the medium used during the creation, the data output forms, the ideas on the image reconstruction and the post processing pattern. He was awarded 1st prize of digital art from 2nd International Biennial of Contemporary Art in Argentina, Tour Eiffel La Grande Exposition Universelle “The Best Artist in the World”, International Award “Lorenzo il Magnifico” of X Florence Biennale and other international art honors. His artworks are collected by Today Art Museum, Old Summer Palace Museum, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Kennedy Family, World Council of Peoples for the United Nations, Dazu Grotto Museum, Chongqing Art Museum, Guangdong Museum of Art, Société Nationale des Beaux Arts of France and other significant organizations and collectors. www.fuwenjun.com • fu1955@qq.com/zangchaonan@gmail.com

Ryota Matsumoto

IMAGINARY ECHO CHAMBER. Mixed Media, 27” x 29”. 2016

The artworks of Ryota Matsumoto reflect the spatio-temporal conditions of our ever-evolving urban and ecological environments, which could be attributed to a multitude of spatial practices constructed by different socio-cultural entities. They are created as visual commentaries and reflections on speculative changes in notions of cities, socities and cultures in the morphological nature of constantly shifting topography and geology. The drawings explore the hybrid technique combining both traditional media (ink, acrylic, and graphite) and digital media (algorithmic processing, parametric modeling, data transcoding and image compositing with custom software ). The varying scale, juxtaposition of different forms/patterns, intertwined textures/tones, oblique/anamorphic projections and visual metamorphoses are employed as the multi-layered drawing methodologies to question and investigate the ubiquitous nature of urban meta-morphology and their visual representation in the context of non-Euclidean configuration. Furthermore, the application of these techniques allow the work to transcend the boundaries between analog and digital media as well as between two- and multi-dimensional domains. Ryota Matsumoto is a principal of an award-winning interdisciplinary design office, Ryota Matsumoto Studio based in Tokyo. He is an artist, designer and urban planner. Born in Tokyo, Ryota was raised in Hong Kong and Japan. He received a Master of Architecture degree from University of Pennsylvania

STEVEN LUSTIG FINE ART Original Sculptures & Drawings

This art is born out of a love of the human form and its natural motion. It is powerful, passionate, and embraces both human and natural forms. Steven was born and raised near the North Shore of Chicago where he began drawing at age 5. In high school he met a regionally known sculptor and began his fine arts education. During that time, Steven was given a copy of Gray’s Anatomy. He became fascinated by what he saw and immediately began to draw directly from the book, changing the course of his life and

18 • Art & Beyond • Summer Edition 2016

starting a lifelong study of the human form. Steven received an art scholarship to Bradley University. He completed his Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign, with an emphasis on Bio-technical Illustration, where he worked for the Biomechanical Engineering department. His early work combining computers, art, and human motion became the genesis of Steven’s fine art, regardless of media. He would go on to draw, paint and sculpt thousands of interpretations of the human form in his own distinctive style. Steven moved to Southern California in the 80’s to work at an Olympic research center focused on Sports Medicine and Biomechical Engineering. He quickly recognized the promise of what computer illustration could bring to traditional graphic design techniques. Steven has produced medical images for companies around the world, illustrated four books, and completed a series of life science illustrations for the Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California. Throughout this time Steven continued to draw and sculpt, dedicating his life to the arts. His fascination with drawing the human form continues to ignite his creative talent and provides him with an endless supply of material. Steven currently teaches a stone sculpting class at the Laguna College of Art & Design, and Digital Media and Photoshop classes at Golden West College. www.stevenlustigfineart.com

I paint large scale canvases with bold invented lyrical and very expressive color passages of natural images viewed so only part of the external contours of the images are seen but without the internal natural details normally seen with such a view. I paint images from the iris flower meant to be more than visual illusions or mimics of iris flowers - to be doorways into visual, emotional, spiritual journeys - into flowerscapes of peace, order, beauty, and unity. They are metaphors of the human condition, the magnificent yet fragile nature of our humanity and our constant dependence on our Creator. www.wellspring-contemporary-art.com www.artistsinfo.co.uk www.bgallery.co.uk

Kathy Dee

Andrew Solomon, PhD, is a writer and lecturer on politics, culture and psychology.

My father was a master photographer, but it wasn’t until he was long gone and I was much older that I found my creative home. Growing up, I wanted my own voice and creative outlet, but now, I realize that photography is where my heart is. It connects me to my roots, my past, and the world around me. It is a way of freezing a moment and having it forever. With photography, you don’t have to say goodbye. You can make anything or anyone your companion for life. Photographs are memories, happy or sad. They bring to life a time that could have been lost but now has survived and lives on. Many of my photographs have been in juried exhibitions from Miami, to Los Angles, Carmel California and the Pacific Northwest and some have won awards.

“Art is the noblest way to make a seeming tragedy into the occasion of triumph. Susan Weinreich’s drawings and paintings have that redemptive quality: they reach unabashedly into darkness and thrust into shattering clarity. Because Weinreich’s distinctive artistic style reaches toward affirmation, her work often alludes to joy, but it is never euphemistic. These brave pictures, suffused with intimacy, elaborate her unstinting gaze at both the smoothness of the world’s surfaces and the jagged turmoil of the human mind.”
