INTERVIEW

1. What type of medium do you work with and explain how you use it? (Paint, design, photography, collage) I always begin with pencil and paper, I can't live without them. Then, depending on the piece I am making, I scan it or I take to canvas, glass, fabric, 3D element or anything else I might be trying out. What I really like to do is experiment so I am always looking to do new things and interesting projects. But I can say that my favorite method is drawing, my best ideas are born from them. 2. Tell us about your creative process, do you have any rituals, routines you follow? How does your artwork come together? (Do you use found objects, image banks, etc) I always begin doodling. You can say that I might have been thinking about nothing, making sketches in my sketchbook while in my room or even a napkin at lunch time. My head never stops. Wherever I go I observe everything, anything inspires me. A great idea might come from anywhere, you just have to be alert. Every idea is good, you just have to sit and give yourself time to develop it. I follow my instincts and I work, work and work. I can finish a piece in a couple of hours or a couple of months, you never know. 3. How did you get started with your artistic career? You can say I started drawing before I started to talk. I always knew I didn't want to go to college, what I wanted to do was paint and paint all day long. After many fights with my parents and many painting classes since I was 9 years old, they accepted I wasn't going to give in so they finally let me study what I wanted. At 18 I began with illustration, then movie-making, and later design and animation. Ever since them, it's been a great learning experience after another and I've enjoyed every minute of it to the max.

4. What would you say is one of your greatest accomplishments? At a professional level, becoming Art Director for Nickelodeon Latin America where I can do everything I love to do, Draw, Design and Animation. On a personal level, my work has been exhibited in magazines, bags, books, and galleries in countries such as Argentina, Costa Rica,Australia and the US. I am always thankful toward people who believe in my work and have given me the opportunity to grow as an artist. 5. Where does your inspiration come from? Or is there any particular movement, artwork or artist you find yourself influenced by? My inspiration comes from everyday life. Everything that surrounds me, what I live through everyday, the music I listen to, everything that makes me happy. This is why I think my work is very cheerful and even a little naive. I don't really feel influenced much by any particular artist but there are many I do admire. 6. How do you see yourself five years from now? How do you see your artwork evolving from now? I see myself happy doing what I love, eating chocolate and listening to Phoenix. I only hope that my work is enjoyed by more people every day, that I continue to exhibit around the world and that I become better at what I do and inspire others with my work. With that I will feel my work has evolved. Name: Amaranta Martinez

Meredith Dittmar 33 years old • Portland - usa

INTERVIEW

1. What type of medium do you work with and explain how you use it? (Paint, design, photography, collage) I work primarily in polymer clay. The material has a bad rap - its perceived as only used to make beads or crappy craft projects. There are now however, quite a few artists out there pushing what polymer clay can do. It’s a very versatile material and Im constantly learning about new looks it can achieve. Its exciting to work with a relatively new material and push what people expect.

7. How do you see yourself five years from now? How do you see your artwork evolving from now? Its hard to know. I’d hope to be a better artist and a better person! I think my artwork will continue to dramatically evolve because I don’t really know any other way. Ill probably remain primarily in polymer clay but continue to venture into other forms of sculpture like fiberglass. Hopefully Ill be working on a project that allows me to have a larger positive impact on the world. Ill continue to explore the same themes because there is no deeper & more infinite subject matter! Name: Meredith Dittmar Age: 33 Email: myguys@corporatepig.com Web: www.corporatepig.com

2. What was your main interest in producing this artwork, or is there a statement you wanted to convey? A common theme in my work is the exploration of the deep connectedness of all things. My characters are frequently involved in quiet expressive moments, or lounge facing their audience so they can share their inner space. My main interest in the creation of the work - IS the act of creating the work. It’s a part of my larger practice to be present, and a way to better understand myself. 3. Tell us about your creative process, do you have any rituals, routines you follow? How does your artwork come together? (Do you use found objects, image banks, etc) My creative process is always changing, but mostly its very spontaneous. Usually I just start working and see what happens. I try to keep my head out of it and be as engaged with the moment as I can. I think that’s where my most authentic work comes from. I try to consistently challenge my comfort zone and push my skills. I frequently work on multiple pieces at once When I make something that doesn’t work - it is put to the side and Ill go down another road. In the end, that element that seemed a failure will work perfectly somewhere else.

4. How did you get started with your artistic career? I was a computer science major in college and started drawing & playing with fimo as a creative outlet. The clay habit stuck and I’ve been sculpting ever since. I have always been moving away from my technical background towards a more and more creative career. From programming to interactive design to character design to art! Every part of the journey has helped me be where I am today. 5. What would you say is one of your greatest accomplishments? My greatest accomplishment is getting where I am now. I’m so fortunate to be able to do what I love everyday and continue to have choices about what direction I want to go next. Im proud to have been published as a part of a particular art movement - (art-toy/urban contemporary), and get super excited every time an artist I love knows I exist! 6. Where does your inspiration come from? Or is there any particular movement, artwork or artist you find yourself influenced by? I’m drawn to, and in love with, all artists that are attempting to communicate the universal truths of this experience. I’m inspired by so much – consciousness, technology, biology, music, raw humanity, evolution, vintage & new school psychedelic art , graffiti, nature, symmetry, graphic design, animals, fashion, tribes of the world. Pretty much everything!

Aaron Hobson 30 years old

INTERVIEW

1. What type of medium do you work with and explain how you use it? (Paint, design, photography, collage) I mainly photograph scenes with 4 vertical images and stitch them together to make a seamless final image. I don't like the tight squeeze a single frame with a standard lens confines me to. I am using a fairly intermediate SLR digital camera and a 14-45mm lens when I shoot. Nothing fancy and state of the art.

7. How do you see yourself five years from now? How do you see your artwork evolving from now? I will continue this series until I get exhausted of it... it has the ability for lots of different approaches to the style. I really couldn't guess where I'll be in 5 years, because only 4 months ago I was just dabbling in Flickr and now have a solo exhibit in Manhattan just under 3 weeks from now. I'll let "it" take me wherever "they" see my work going. I just want to shoot! Name: Aaron Hobson Age: 30 Email: aaron@aaronhobson.com Web: www.aaronhobson.com

2. What was your main interest in producing this artwork, or is there a statement you wanted to convey? My main interest would be in myself. It is an obsession. Even if my career didn't take off like it has (which was never even the plan), I would be shooting the same stuff and shooting just as often. Actually, I would be shooting more, because all of the preparations for shows, and sales, and interviews (haha... no offense) take up time that I would normally be out shooting. 3. Tell us about your creative process, do you have any rituals, routines you follow? How does your artwork come together? (Do you use found objects, image banks, etc) I have been referred to by a friend once as a "Lunchbox" photographer. A term, I believe, he coined himself. I have a regular job for a living and a family life at home, so most of my images are produced during my only free time. My lunch break. I hunt down a location in our little town of 1,500 people that I like and that has interesting natural lighting at the time...ponder a scenario for a few minutes and snap off a half dozen images. Get back to work and process later that evening when the children are finally in bed.

4. How did you get started with your artistic career? That's a good question that I can't really recall an exact moment. I've been shooting for almost 2 years now, and a friend of mine saw my work on Flickr. He is a freelance writer for coolhunting. com and he wrote a feature article. From there on, the requests for articles, a gallery showing in NYC, possibly Moscow in '08, and other publicity spewed forth. Quite unexpectantly. It is all still very overwhelming. 5. What would you say is one of your greatest accomplishments? off the top of my head... Hugo, my son. 6. Where does your inspiration come from? Or is there any particular movement, artwork or artist you find yourself influenced by? Inspiration for cinemascapes probably stemmed from my fathers work with a WIDELUX panoramic film camera when I was young. I remember he did a series of images for a book about 24 hours in an Emergency Room at a hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The intensity of that 180 degree image was amazing. One scene in particular was of a deceased (just died a minute before the photo) 16 year old victim of a drunk driving accident. The panoramic was able to show the entire body, the doctor marking the time of death to the right, nurses quietly cleaning up to the left... it was permanently fixed into my memory bank.

TEXAS | Arthouse Texas Prize

HAPPENINGS | SHOWS | FAIRS | COMPETITIONS MIAMI | The Killing Machine

FT LAUDERDALE | Implied Form 07

Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller new exhibitions of works was premiered on October 21, 2007 and remains on view through January 20, 2008. The Killing Machine and Other Stories 1995-2007 features 11 installations that are placed together independently but become complementary experiences. Each piece moves to its own time and rhythm, uniting sound with moving imagery in order to produce stories that live side by side in time.

When great minds come together: Artists and designers are in a constant need for exposure and getting their work out there for the rest to see. Implied Form was launched as a happenings making machine. Their T-shirt Design Contest at Pink Ghost, coming up this Saturday November 17th, is their fist contest for artists and designers being organized. Only five from the eighty three designs submitted will be immortalized on a tee and the public have selected through online voting the most appealing design from the group, all winners will be announced the day of the show.

The installation "The Killing Machine 2007", is based on Franz Kafka's story "In the Penal Colony". A reflection on the use of the death penalty in the United States, the piece seems to invite the spectator to become involved but at the same time the inviting feelings get crashed with rejection. Expo Dates: October 21 - January 20 Location: 101 West Flagler Street Miami, FL 33130 305.375.3000 www.miamiartmuseum.org

Implied Form intrigued many designers and has gained followers since the day it was launched. The announcement of a second contest has been made and it should be posted soon at: www.impliedform.com Event Date: Nov 17, 7pm Location: Pink Ghost Vinyl Toy Store 21 W. Las Olas Blvd. Suite B, Ft. Lauderdale, FL info@impliedform.com www.impliedform.com

2007 ARTHOUSE TEXAS PRIZE Katrina Moorhead has been awarded the 2007 Arthouse Texas Prize. Presented by independent art critic and curator Dave Hickey on the evening of November 2, the 30,000 dollars juried prize is one of the largest regional arts awards in the United States. The first-ever prize in Texas created to acknowledge the accomplishments of an emerging or under-recognized Texas-based artist. Morhead has meticulously handcrafted boxes of spent fireworks and strings of unexploded fireworks using paper mâché, archival paper, and silver leaf. Each firework’s potential explosion refers to the forms of dragons, flowers, and the like, and the strings serve to symbolize a chain of events in the three different romantic courtships. The Prize distinguishes Moorhead as an exceptional and innovative talent and recognizes her contribution to the energetic and growing Texas art scene. Expo Dates: November 2, 2007 Location: www.arthouse.org

INTERVIEW

1. What type of medium do you work with and explain how you use it? (Paint, design, photography, collage) I'm a painter. I always start by making some sketches in pencil from my mind, from pictures or stuff I find on the web and when I get the idea I’m looking for, I scan it, color it in Photoshop and print it. Then I paint it. 2. What was your main interest in producing this artwork, or is there a statement you wanted to convey? I need to do it. It’s part of who I am. And I'm always interested in creating pretty images from ugliness and death. 3. Tell us about your creative process, do you have any rituals, routines you follow? How does your artwork come together? (Do you use found objects, image banks, etc) I use everything I can get my hands on - old pictures, stock images, magazines. But most of my ideas come from whatever’s on my mind and from drawing a lot. 4. How did you get started with your artistic career? For me it’s more of a need. I need to paint to make me feel like somebody, to make me feel human. I’ve been drawing and painting since I was kid, but I started selling my art when my house was full of it and all my friends were asking me why I wasn’t showing it in a gallery. 5. What would you say is one of your greatest accomplishments? A big accomplishment for me is having and maintaining a professional career as an artist, while working full-time as an art director in an ad agency. Designer by day painter by night.

6. Where does your inspiration come from? Or is there any particular movement, artwork or artist you find yourself influenced by? My inspiration came from everywhere: popular latino art, traditions, old masters, sign painting techniques, graphic design and the list goes on. I'm always interested in artists with a dark side like Bosh, Goya, Kahlo, Witkin, Serrano etc. 7. How do you see yourself five years from now? How do you see your artwork evolving from now? I see myself doing a lot of shows and creating really creepy things that are beautifully ugly! Name: Alvaro Perez del Solar Email: alvaro@perezdelsolar.com
