Yael Avni Eshchar www.yaelavni.com Water oil on canvas 100cm x 80cm 2015

My name is Yael Avni Eshchar, who lives and works in Israel. Married, with one, 6 years old child. When I was 6 myself - in kindergarten -, the only field in which I was interested in were drawing and materials. My parents allowed me to develop this passion. In high school I realized that “being an artist� is the only thing I want to be. While studying I researched techniques and created mixed media, abstract paintings and digital art. These days I go back to the classical techniques of naturalistic painting, as the biggest inspiration for me is nature.

My goal is to express myself through form and colour, the “natural versus artificial�. Music that I love, human, fragile and delicate nature.Colours and shapes are my main research tools and it keeps me busy. My artwork is looking to create an environment. Tension between texture, colour and delicate spots. My work process begins with a word, a sentence or an image, then I look for materials that will serve the idea. Currently I am looking for an image that would make me astonished to express fragility, vulnerability, joy: testimony.

Deane Bowers www.instagram.com/deanevbowers As a self-taught artist, Deane Bowers prides herself on producing imaginative, unique and eclectic art using mostly reclaimed, recycled and salvaged materials. Every item that goes into her work has been rescued from the streets and beaches of Charleston, South Carolina. That shattered or busted piece of metal or wood lying in the streets is the focal point in her mixed media, found object sculptures. Inspiration is always found in the beauty and simplicity of Deane’s coastal surroundings. For this reason, she is passionate about being an environmentally conscientious artist and creating eco-friendly art. Items that otherwise might end up in landfills and waterways are given new and important value. One will discover that recycling is definitely an art form when viewing her vibrant, uplifting found object creations. Forgive Me mixed media 6in x 6in 2015

Deane finds an imaginative purpose for even the dingiest nail or screw and pairs them with other dull, discarded items to form a fresh new whole. Bold colours are used freely to accentuate the shades and patinas of the rust. Creating sustainable artwork and cleaning up her city, even if it is one nail at a time is extremely satisfying to Deane. She is amazed and artistically challenged by the variety of materials she finds within a few city blocks.

based in Los Angeles. I like to bluntly express things that people don’t want to discuss about, because sadness and hurtful memories are able to be overcame through acceptance. Instead of hiding and hating, I try to purify and embrace the sadness of the world with innocence through my art. I want to share my thoughts or other people’s thoughts that I virtually experienced, so that people could feel somewhat accompanied and not alone.”

Jenny Wiener www.forensicfairytales.com

Jenny Wiener’s work is subtle, analytical and almost perverse. Almost because it has a wonderful reasoning all of its own which stretches the logic of measurement. Jenny’s practice focuses on measurements and how they relate to our daily lives. Her interest is in the historical structures of myths, of attempting to transform structures from within history and to remake perspectives.

Starting with maths, and moving to the structures of perception, Jenny poses questions about questions and critiques of visual thinking. Jenny’s work makes you look at the way that you look and think about the way you see.

To reflect on nature’s cycles; the changes in colour and feeling as we respond to it. Her inspiration comes from the impressionists and their study of light conveyed over a day. Intersects with her interest of rituals and myth. Using allegory she explores our inner voice and acts of contemplation as we try to unravel and understand ourselves; our response to aspects of our life that at times are as mysterious as the Universe.

Mei-Lin Lin www.flickr.com/photos/45204069@N03/page3 Image creation is more than combining colours and shapes. In the creation process, the creator endeavours to enable the artwork to narrate her observation of the boundless universe. Thus, in Mei-Lin Lin’s creations, she uses a combination of painting and photography layering, similar to image superimposition in the multiple exposure technique of photography. By integrating the various layers of images using post production techniques, a novel and colourful picture is created. Using stark contrasting colour blocks and unconventional methods, she hopes to guide viewers into her interpreted world.

Lady in Ruins / infrared photography and b&w processing / 60cm x 40cm / 2014

I work as a freelance photographer and specialise in public relation, products, fashion and special processing effects. However, I prefer dedicating most of my time to art and finding ways to getting my messages heard. Born in 1975 in Israel, from a very young age I felt passionate about photography. I received my first camera when I was about eight years old and started to document my friends. Only at the age of 27, after struggling between my dreams and ideas, I decided to become a professional photographer. I studied multi-media at Sivan Collage in 1999-2002 and then photography at “The Studio” Art College in Ra’a’nana, Israel in 2003-2004. Always driven by a concept, I describe myself as a documentary photographer eager to provoke my audience with messages and raw images that most people shy away from. Each frame I capture is about a dialogue between 2–3 elements … it’s the dialogue that inspires my work. Solo exhibition: “a male point of view” - “Yes I can“ - “Light’s” ‘’working class heroes”- with Jonathan Pasternak - “Refraction” “Tattoo, I” “She“ “Absence”- with Ron Dahan.

59 In most of her series she dealt with the human soul. Through her many observations she has staged her works as a type of mirror into human nature in accordance with her feelings and interpretations. The series Pathology of Rust is devoted to thoughts salted with the fear from the future ahead in the context of our body’s getting rusted over the years. To express her feelings she used three large rusted metal sheets at various degrees of rust constructed a complex array of shadows lit the stains of rust using the light as a brush or scalpel. She studied at Kamera Obscura Art School in Tel-Aviv. She developed her own personal technique using a silvery screen which is both transparent and reflecting. She exhibited in many solo exhibitions among them at Tel Hai Potography Museum at Kowasa Gallery in Barcelona and she’s a member at Noho Gallery in Chelsea NYC. She has also taken part in many group exhibitions throughout the world such as in the Cites Des Arts Paris, The Great 4 Museum in Chongching China and in NYC. Her work is in public collection Te Hai Potography Museum and in a private collection at Vision Gallery Jerusalem and Neil Folberg’s Gallery.

Fu Wenjun www.fuwenjun.com Nepotism conceptual photography 140 x 175 cm 2015

Fu Wenjun, Chinese important conceptual photography artist, talks about history of art; it’s not a means, but the main goal. He therefore analyses some aspects which are meant to express a timeless concept. In this way, the expression of every artwork becomes a thesis with no possibility of anti-thesis, full of proofs which we find again many times in history, western and oriental, to remember that history is repeating itself and that the mankind as a whole has similarities beyond geo-cultural position.

Elana Schwartz is a wood sculptor from New Mexico. She has been drawn to the use of statuary as a conduit between the physical and metaphysical; concrete objects transcend the inherent limitations of the physical and provide a channel through which hidden meaning is unlocked. Wood is the perfect medium to explore concepts of the cyclical nature of life, containing within each piece a living history and future all its own. The recreation of wood into sculpture captures the transformative spirit of our own life cycles, and has the capacity to make any space sacred.

WHY ARTISTS SHOULD BE PAID FOR THEIR ARTWORK?

“Artists shouldn’t be paid for their art. Getting paid prevents them from creating really good stuff.” - I read somewhere online. I want to make three points about Art, Contribution and Money with this article: Your art is a contribution to society. It brings joy, it solves problems, and it makes this world a better place. Being paid allows you to make that contribution to society. Your contribution expands in relation to the amount of time you put into it. More hours means expanded contribution to this world with your God-given talent. “Artists are better off working a job they hate and then painting in their spare time.” This is the problem I have with that: No one should work a job they hate. You were put on this earth with talents and you are meant to do that which you are good at and what you love! The world is missing out on your contribution. The less an artist creates, the less they grow. It requires hours upon hours to hone your craft. Charging for your artwork enables you to make a contribution to the world with your art. It allows you to develop your style and to get better and better at what you do. As long as we are stuck in a money based system, I find it an outright insult to all hardworking artists to say they shouldn’t be paid for what they do. It’s just a crazy notion that this one, single profession should work for free! (While everyone else gets paid.)

Amapola black belgian marble 56 x 17 x 18 cm 2009

“Marian Sava” makes the stone sing” He received his artistic education at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Bruxelles. When looking at his works, one word comes to mind ‘Emotion’, because one experiences a great pleasure, produced by the creative impulses of the artist, which are marked by the seal of extreme sensitivity. Marian Sava approaches the abstract art in his very nuanced manner, without ever falling on the side of pure and hard abstraction. He passes smoothly, from the strict image of a subject to the creation of new unexpected forms (...) Collette Bertot, Art Critic, Brussels 23 02 2008

Burning Bush “Myth and reality in the history of humanity”. The burning Bush is, in the biblical tradition, the revelation of the Angel of the God inside a Bush that burned without ever burn on Mount Sinai. Here, God sends Moses deliver his people from slavery and gives him the tablets of the law with the ten commandments, carved in stone by the fire.

Leo creates ceramic faces, figures, sculptures and jewellery that sometimes include coloured wires, textiles, beads and paint. When she has a black biro in her hand she produces surreal black & white illustrations and also paints in oils & acrylics. She started working spontaneously with the black biro drawings, which took her on subconscious journeys to a world far more interesting than the physical normality.

WHAT MAKES AN ARTWORK GREAT?

After contemplating what it is about certain artworks and artists that remain relevant over time, There are three main considerations: Motivation: The purpose for creating; connection to the subject; the intentional concept, message, or emotion that the artist is passionate about capturing. Execution: Technical proficiency; ability and confidence in the various principles of art so that the concept, message, or emotion comes through skillfully and convincingly. Expression: A unique style; the heart and soul of the artist; where we see his/her hand and feel what he or she was feeling; that “it� factor of the work that takes you to the time and place of the artist who created it and lets you become lost in the moment conveyed. In short, great art comes from great artists. Because, more than anything, the end product is a direct reflection of the mind, heart, soul, and life experience of the one creating it. When artists think and feel deeply, respect the responsibility that goes with their calling, and have a genuine connection to and interest in their subject matter, they are on their way to greatness. And if their motivation, execution, and expression are operating at high levels of skill and sincerity, great paintings can naturally occur. Allison Malafronte senior editor of American Artist

I learned from the past, from the present and as I go in to the future. I know the depths and heights of the human spirit. The essence of my art is the brilliant manifestation of consciousness in human life. I faced life and death and I met the wisdom of pure happiness. My motto is: “There is no shadow just your pure light that illuminates the Universe.”

GET YOUR ARTWORKS SEEN! Don’t disregard eyes and ears close to home. In your town or neighborhood? Is there a coffee shop or bookstore you love? Is it frequented by a lot of like-minded people? If so, take the opportunity and ask the owner or manager to display your paintings or drawings. You get publicity and they get their walls decorated for free, and you get to tap into a community you are already in sync with. Who are the top ten people whom you would love to get your artworks in front of? Make a list and email them. Tracking them down on the worldwide web should be easy enough, and you get the opportunity to make a presentation of your work to the people you respect and admire on your own terms - no filter and no middleman to work around.
