BOOMER MAGAZINE | 4TH EDITION | ART FOR REAL! What is art? Where is it heading? Is art still in the hands of artists and art dealers or it has become a tool for the crypto speculators? The world is changing, everything becomes more virtual including art and in the process a lot of speculators are trying to twist things in their own interest like in the case of NFT. The crypto speculators are trying to make this the new “COOL” but what is so cool about it? Art is food for our souls, If they want this to be the new truth then they should start doing everything virtually, for example start eating virtual food or maybe get drunk with virtual alcohol, if they do this then by all means we will start to believe in their vision. As for us- galleries, artists, collectors… should we let hundreds of years of artistic refinement in the hands of the crypto speculators that don’t even know the difference between renaissance and contemporary? What about the painters, photographers, print makers, sculptors, performers and all the other artists who create real work, work that we can touch, smell, feel… should we give up on them for the sake of a speculative game? No thanks!!! NFT should be embraced as a new medium/tool like we always did along the way with a lot of other things but it shouldn’t be allowed to take over! If it does take over then an entire generation of artists and their works will vanish in thin air making way for the crypto speculators and their pyramid. Should we allow this to happen on our watch? The aim of this publication is to promote real art made by real artists! “All colours will agree in the dark” - Francis Bacon Kindly note that most of the works are for sale. For any enquires regarding artists, prices, purchase, shipments- you can kindly contact us at email@boomergallery.net or contact the artists directly via Instagram (Instagram user name in the bio). Thank you for your attention, and we hope you will enjoy reading about the selected artists and their works. Editor Constantin Publisher Boomer Gallery Graphic Designer Vladimir Jansky alias Vadio

Thomas Oscar Miles My art looks to inspire self empowerment, through embracing our vulnerabilities. This is celebrated through fragile and detailed imagery, centred around the narratives. In my work, I talk about personal fears and darker experiences. I give my characters opportunities to wear these like a crown. How can we appreciate our light when we brush the darkness under the bed, ignored? I hope that my work can show people how multi-layered each one of us is, showing a unity in our humanity. I talk in my work about personal experiences such as mental health and my ever-growing relationship with my autism. I choose to represent these in my work through visuals such as decay, bones, and shadow filled corners of a woodland. My new series ‘Our Beautiful Demise’ speaks on a similar theme: wearing our fears with pride, binding them tightly to our flesh. I have grown up fearful of my personal shadows, I now instead hope to educate others on this and create a platform to spotlight issues we all go through.

Stephen Cornwell I grew up in Newcastle, Australia, graduating with a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts and also a Degree in Education. Early on, I was an art teacher. In 1999 I co-establishing a boutique Advertising and Design Studio in Adelaide. In 2019, as the global pandemic started reaching Australia, I began investing the majority of my time in developing my personal artwork. In 2021 I was offered my first exhibition, which also happened to be a Solo event for me. Several months later, I was invited into a group exhibition in “The Main Gallery” Adelaide. Also in 2021 I leased a 1/2 hour loop of my animations to a Melbourne company for outdoor projects. Also… 2021 I was selected as a finalist in the 66th BLAKE PRIZE. I’m constantly exploring opportunities to share my work with

Gisseline Amiuny Gisseline was born in Caracas, Venezuela. She studied architecture for two years, and made some works of art, design and decoration, including jewelry design. His most recent stage begins in 2010, where he begins his research work on geometric and kinetic art, the relationship of the works with natural light being very important and mostly with the use of RGB LED lighting, using programmed electronic controls and specifically developed by the artist, to have precise control of colors and sequences. She describes her work: “I can express myself as an artist through lines, curves and geometric shapes. I get inspired when I experiment with light, shadows and reflections that produce geometric shapes interacting with materials”. The artist created her own artistic language within the field of kineticism, for which her work was included within the Neo-Kineticism current, during her participation in “Lumiere et Mouvement”, Denise René-Rive Espace Marais Gallery, Paris, France, 2016.

Veronika Sekotová “I shut my eyes in order to see” The author of this wisdom is one of my favourite artists, the French painter Paul Gauguin. I have yet to discover a more brilliant one. Art has been part of life since prehistoric times and, with me, since my early childhood. I discovered the beauty and power of art, especially fine art, from a very early age. When I was at high school, I fell in love with art history, which I decided to combine with studying tourism. Thanks to work and having a family, art soon turned into an occasional hobby. Now art is firmly back in my life as a means to express myself and relax. I am constantly trying to develop a relationship with visual art and the whole field of visual culture, so I can perceive the beauty of nature and the aesthetic values in what is happening around us. As I believe that a creative outlook enriches our lives immensely, my aim is to promote creativity not only in the field of fine arts but also in my entire way of thinking. Painting is my joy, pleasure, relaxation and helps me express my feelings. I like to try new techniques, but mostly I work with acrylic paints on canvas. I don’t have a

Aaron Santos Boyd-Rochman I am almost entirely self-taught except for a few public school art classes and art institutions in adolescence. My work is an exploration and coalescing of who I am as an artist and as a person. Learning to be comfortable with uncertainty is my goal both as an artist and as a human moving through this world. I love the multiple dualities my work evokes:stillness and movement, structure and entropy, order and chaos, solace and uncertainty, natural objects created from human-made ones. My creative process leads to the organic forms my work evokes. I use discarded and overlooked objects and transform them into something beautiful, unexpected, and fun - I make art stuff from other stuff.

Davide Sannino Born in Peschiera del Garda (Verona) – Italy - on July 12, 1968. Died in June 2020. Art has always been with him since his childhood and released during the hardest time of his life. As a child, while recovering from a serious illness he started drawing using a pencil or a charcoal and, after having emerged victorious from this battle, he expressed his Hymn to Life also through canvas and colors. His style, typically figurative, is represented in modern paintings made in acrylic to give emphasis and vitality to the subjects. Sometimes his creations differ completely from reality, with a peculiar and highly imaginative view, special prospective and colored effects perceptible in the pursuit of lights and shadow contrasts. He always proposes to the public a new vision of his paintings facing innovative and multi-faceted/stylized compositions. This will make him immortal through the amazement in the eyes of people watching and appreciating his paintings looking at images conveying strength and intensity of the lines, sensi-

Bella Nunn Bella Nunn is a British contemporary textiles designer. Living in Norfolk, she specialises in weave and sustainable textiles. The qualities of natural fibres inspire her honest weaves, influenced by seasonal landscapes and uplifting tones. Her practice conveys the charm in imperfections and the responsibility to campaign for biodegradable materials. Natural materials and traditional hand-weaving techniques are brought together in her contemporary designs and evoke tactility in the nature of each thread. From graduating from Norwich University of the Arts, she now works on an old wooden loom, innovating dyes and sourcing uniquely spun fibres. The connections between the land and our lives can be sensed through a visual language of storytelling and placemaking. Her self-initiated projects hope to raise awareness for the environmental devastations in the textile industry and realise the potential to minimise waste through a soil-to-soil practice.

Marek Zgodka I’m an abstract expressionist painter, with great sensitivity, who creates works by bending reality and sometimes even touching on irrationality. On canvas, I expresses my subjective point of view of things, people and the world. My motto ‘Everything that is not obvious is exciting’. I use colour and form to express a taste of a moment and feelings . I’m self-taught artist I lived in London for almost 30 years .I owe my experience and love for painting to my mother, Anna, artist and painter. Enchanted by my mothers world of exhibitions and painting, it was thanks to her that I developed my passion for fine arts. In late 90 I was more in to the music creation , Than only in around 2004 I felt more towards Fine art and decided to switch directions . I believe I have an increased sensitivity to emotional or social stimuli , all is related deeper in Quantum states within , I believe we can translate Quantum process and receive information’s , Through perceptive -conscious state of mind and combine those to get the right outcome ,

Denisa Berglova (Denisa Bergl) I fulfilled my dream of starting to take photos at the end of 2016, when I started learning with my first SLR camera. I wanted to show the beauty of a loved friend who did not believe it at the time. The beauty that comes from each of us without even realizing it. That is why it is essential for me to show the beauty of the photographed person in the most natural form and in perfect daylight.

Courtney MacIsaac Courtney MacIsaac is a contemporary artist born in Ontario, Canada. She was accepted and graduated from art school, apprenticed under an established artist which helped her sharpen her skills in graphite, ink, and oil painting. While working tirelessly to hone her technique, her emotionally charged paintings have been the subject to group exhibitions throughout Canada, United States, the UK and Europe. She is inspired by artists such as Rembrandt and Caravaggio for realism in their art, Dali for illusion, dream, and imagination, and Banksy for pointing out the absurdity in the world. Her art relates to the constant battle that hinders us from making decisions, the feelings of conflict captured into fear, anger, confusion, and loneliness. Courtney is able to translate her experiences through her realistic paintings by using elements of art and principles of design to create feeling, emotion, and to challenge the viewer.

Katsiaryna Kalashnikava Artist from Minsk. Participant of exhibitions and open call in England, Switzerland, Italy. She has learned to paint on her own. She paints in her signature style, using classic paintbrushes and palette knives. The basis of her work can be called the desire to express her feelings on canvas. With the help of color and shape she conveys subtle and invisible connections that appear in the first sketches and are already fully revealed in the finished work. “Dreams give us the ability to go beyond the limits of our own consciousness. The beauty of nature is a source of emotions that gives inspiration and becomes the basis for creative ideas, unity and harmony.”

Olga Shermachkova I am Olga Shermachkova (Helga Sherr) I am from Russia and I am an experimenter watercolor artist. I have two art degrees and I am the winner of many art competitions. My story began 5 years ago. When my daughter bought a ferry ticket for 0.06$. I didn’t believe that it can be possible, but something forced me to join this adventure. Well, it was the first time when I saw Norway and Denmark. And it was an amazing experience. New culture, new places, new thoughts. The beauty of this world inspired me to visit a lot of new countries. So I visited 20 countries in only 5 years. And every new place left an indelible mark in my memory and my life turned upside down. Since then I understood that I want to share these wonderful moments with people and so I started to paint. I like watercolor. I like its unpredictability. I like to play with colors and shapes. I think that painting should have its own meaning for everyone. Art should make you think and lead to new discoveries.

Veronika Weberová Veronika Weberová 1987 (Slovakia) She studied Didactics of Art Education of Comenius University in Bratislava (SK), where she received her PaedDr. and PhD. During her studies she focused on painting techniques and their use in school. She works with the author’s modified ebru technique, painting on the water surface. She mixes the colours herself. She often combines abstract painting with surrealistic pen drawing, which is created by layering lines. This type of pen-drawing forms the second distinctive part of her artistic work. She has exhibited in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Italy, Austria, Serbia, the Canary Islands and Ukraine. She was awarded the Premio Speciale Della Critica at the XXI Premio Internationale D’Arte San Crispino (IT) in 2019 and 2nd place for her pearl row in the national round of the Tahitian Pearl Trophy in 2005.

Will Terra I am a 29-year-old self-taught artist, born in Brazil but currently based in Lisbon, Portugal. My paintings portray oneiric realities. I explore themes of metaphysics such as existence, time, consciousness and space. I often mix these concepts with the natural world and some social critique. The force of chaos in the universe is an important subject in my paintings, and this concept also influences my method of painting which uses a certain degree of improvisation. My main source of inspiration is the mystery of our existence and our relationship with the universe. The fact that all things in the universe are made of matter and nothing is eternal, is depicted in my paintings by the strong brushwork, merging elements, dynamic objects and fading edges.

Ulrike Gamst Ulrike Gamst uses terms of sculpture to develop her colorbased paintings. After her studies of sculpture in the 80ies, painting became a possibility to continue creating and opened a whole new world of colour. Fascinated equally by the transparency and material of the colours in painitngs of old masters and the huge canvases of american artists of abstract expresssionism, having been formed as a sculptor, she understood the canvas as an object in the space of a gallery or a museum. In her door sized canvases she evokes the colour as a conterpart of the viewer offering communication on an equal footing, being literally of the same size and having the same importance. She uses eggtempera in up to 50 layers, kind of sculpting the substance of the colour. Because of the importance of exploring reality, her work includes also realistic studies of figure and anatomy in pencil and charcoal.

Olga Bonitas Artist, illustrator, teacher. Watercolor is my passion. The watercolor process is always improvisation. It is an unpredictable and almost uncorrected medium. Sometimes it takes several attempts to achieve the desired effect. While painting I feel that I have a co-author: the result depends not only on me but also on the behavior of paints. That’s why watercolor illustrations are so fresh and delightful. They remain popular and in demand despite the widespread of digital art. Tending to realism I love to add something unusual and unexpected in my illustrations. I tell stories through my paintings. And believe that art is powerful and makes the world a better place.

Lauren Roberts My name is Lauren Roberts and I’m currently a teaching assistant in my local primary school. I’ve studied art throughout high school and college alongside photography and pottery. At 17 I moved to Cyprus and studied at the Cyprus college of art in Limassol. After that I graduated from the school of life! I became a mum, started working and built my world and family. Now in my 30’s I’m finally having an opportunity to start doing what I love again. I’m blessed to live in a rural town in Staffordshire and there is no end of inspiration. I have no specific style I just love to create, by any means necessary. All media is fair game. I will try anything just to see what happens.

Donna Dent I am a Designer who loves to paint, with a background in textile design and yarn technology, providing the inspiration behind most of my paintings. Textiles to me, are remarkable, and my ambivalence towards a digital future has me creating paintings that represent digital textiles whilst remaining completely analogue. I like to push the boundaries of what I can achieve using paint and resin to create layering and give real depth to my painting. I like to use florescent colour and textures finished with a glass like surface of resin that produces a slightly 3D effect. I studied Textile Design at Huddersfield University and prior to that, I went to Bath Academy of Art.

Dominique Zuber My name is Dominique Zuber and I live with my two kids in Switzerland. With 16 I began my artwork to express myself, to get in touch with my soul and my feelings. I was influenced by Basquiat and Picasso. There is nothing more fulfilling for me then to get in the flow state. It is the best therapie I‘ ve known. 5 years ago I started to have some private lessons with the great artist Eva Pospisil. She learned me a lot and always convinced myself in believing in the process and in me. To be in touch with the colours, to try, to explore new things, to use my hands and my heart- and not the brain, listen to good music like David Bowie, Placebo or Florence and the Machine, takes me to an inner world, that is hard to describe… but hopefully to feel in my works.. I could not imagine a world without. Without creativity the soul is dying.

Kenneth F Yates Originally from Liverpool UK, Kenneth F Yates studied Fine Art at Leeds University, specialising in video art. As a filmmaker he’s made creative films for Screen Yorkshire and North West Vision in England. His photographs have been exhibited online and in galleries, both in the UK and internationally. Recently some of his street photography was published in an international art magazine, but he also has more aesthetic interests, pushing the boundaries of what a photograph can be. His ‘Crespucular Glass’ series explores the intersection between realism and abstraction in photography in trying to create with glass and light an analogue of abstract painting in a photographic image.

Caitlin Smith Caitlin is a multidisciplinary surrealist completing her master’s degree at the University of Sunderland. Working with a plethora of mediums, Smith favours relief printmaking processes & painting, acrylic being her preferred choice. At present, her practice explores the figurative narrative of the internalised femme fatale conjuring fragmented paintings and prints. She strives to eradicate the unspoken autocracy and biased attitudes implemented within both society & the Arts, alongside prioritising inclusivity, and representation. Smith visually transcribes an outrageous oeuvre displaying themes of politics, societal taboos, and conflict. Referring to the theory demonstrated by poststructuralism, Caitlin’s practice confronts the notion of gender biases and stereotypes. She creates works that shift the objectification of women and marginalised genders onto men, conveying a reciprocated image that depicts the man as the subject of societal standards and scrutiny. Smith celebrates women’s bodies as they are, rather than the subject of degradation and sexualisation.

Amanda Kessaris Amanda Kessaris (2001) is a Danish-American artist with roots in California but currently living and studying art in Aarhus, Denmark. Though previously identifying as primarily a painter, Kessaris has in recent years begun incorporating various artistic disciplines in her work to convey a shared theme. Through translating her 2-D works into films, photography, or performance, she uses medium as language to bring her work to life in a way that can be experienced and understood in different contexts. Her work investigates gender roles and expectations both in terms of behavior and appearance, as well as comments on a culture where the body is a blank canvas that lies in the field of tension between something natural and something assumed.

Fuen Fernandez Estepa “Painting and drawing made me fall in love since I was little in Seville. Light, color, perspective, composition have always attracted me. I took painting and drawing courses at an Art School in Paris, and in addition I prepared the title of Graphic Designer where I learned and perfected digital creation. I like both traditional art and digital art. In fact, as a result of these studies, I often make original creations as a result of of amazing mixes of my paintings, watercolours, India inks and charcoal drawings with Photoshop. I try to reflect in my works what I see around me: a gesture, a landscape, a look, a smile… A beautiful photograph can also inspire me. Reflect environments, shapes, colors, light, character, looks, feelings, impressions.”

The main idea behind Marina’s paintings is to show asian people inner beauty and character.

Myrzakhmetov Marat My mission as an artist share your feelings with the whole world! He graduated from a higher educational institution, specializing in teaching fine arts and drawing. For a long time he worked in the field of graphic design. Moving to a resort town by the sea forced me to return to the questions of my creative realization and allowed me to concentrate only on my work. Starting to draw some new work, it is impossible to predict what it will be like. I just sit down, turn on the music, take a blank sheet of paper, a pen and get to work, never knowing what it will be and in what material, an irresistible desire to express my thoughts and feelings through art. The complexity of the images and the originality of the technique of performance allows you to move up the creative ladder, moving away from the usual standards and stereotypes. For me, as an artist, graphic art seems simple and complex at the same time. It seems to me very interesting to look for and find the line between black and white, adding a little red to it.

Vanessa Wenwieser Vanessa Wenwieser’s work places the female into the centre of her imagination, she liberates them from the typical male gaze and brings her female perspective to the forefront. In her artworks, women are seen as beings with minds, emotions and intuitively powerful. Using the figure and allusive storytelling elements Wenwieser examines the gap between appearance and being. Feelings are exhibited naked and vulnerable, she explores them in an imaginative and beautiful way, trying to make people see the transcendent. Her aim is to pull the viewer inside her pictures to make them inhabit her otherworldly depictions. These artworks, show what particular transformative emotions and feelings could look like. Be it love, metamorphosis, imagination, healing, regaining lost strength and the afterlife. Wenwieser uses space to create feeling of the sublime, when describing strong emotional places of the soul. “I want to be inside your darkest everything” (Frida Kahlo).

Lisa Davis I am a UK based artist working with acrylics on canvas. I have always dabbled in painting, but it wasn’t until suffering three tragic losses in less than a year that I dedicated myself to art (outside of my day job). Whilst working through my grief in front of a canvas I discovered my passion and stepped into my purpose. Every piece is revealed in the moment, evolving spontaneously and organically with each stroke of the brush (or comb, or shower squeeze or de-icer tool…..whatever is on hand can be part of the creative process). My work has been displayed in two London galleries and my creative vision has led to a devoted international clientele.

Holly Davis Holly wavers through digital and physical realms, allowing her to try and merge the two worlds together. This is due to how the natural self is constantly questioned by the digital persona she may constitute online. The new rapid growth in this cyberspace world brings into question whether there is a crossover between the two, a connection between the programmed self and the subconscious. With an interest in digital aesthetics, this is explored through manipulated digital image creation, presenting the distorted perception she has of herself through the selfie culture and creative computing (Augmented Reality and Artificial intelligence), which is later further manipulated using traditional methods (acrylic paint). Her identity or “identities” are presented through layering showing the complexity of the self. Holly is a multimedia artist currently based in London. Her practice has begun looking at immersion as a way of inclusivity to get others to self-reflect on themselves too.
