PUBLISHER’S LETTER

Oh Snap! April was a busy month! We had The Dallas Art Fair, Dallas International Film Festival, Dance Planet 2014 and the Ft. Worth Art Festival all in the same week! Then, we had Art in the Square, USA Film Festival, Edgefest and Earth Day all in the same weekend! Thank you to everyone who attended ‘The Happening’ last month! It’s important for our culture to get together to share and appreciate what our creative minds are doing. Be sure to mark your calendar for May 14th: We will have a French-themed gathering at the Main Street Bakery & Bistro! This month, we examine Photography. Southlake Arts wouldn’t be what it is without the talented photographers in our midst. Bruce Rosenstiel, Lauren Sullivan, Carolyn Taluja and Brian Guilliaux to name just a few. We’ve printed a few of the winners of the Bob Jones Nature Center, and, as I’m sure you’ll agree, the photographs are stunning! The content, focus and processing that the camera club does is truly breathtaking. I’m excited to bring you an “Arts Chat” with Bruce Rosenstiel. Bruce consistently blows me away with his photography. Bruce and his wife, Sandi, are world travelers. This month they take us to Paris in our “Destinations” section. I’m also thrilled to bring you some of the new work “The Miracle of Chance” from Brian Guilliaux! Beginning with beautiful photographs, Brian takes a unique approach in the processing of his recent work to bring us a fresh artistic expression.

ARTS CHAT:

Bruce Rosenstiel PHOTOGRAPHER

I HAD THE PLEASURE MID-APRIL TO SIT down and chat with Sandi and Bruce Rosenstiel at their home by Grapevine Lake. Their home which is filled with prints, paintings, weaves and sculptures; some from their world travels and some they’ve made themselves - is a sight to see, and, every time I saw one of Bruce’s photos on canvas it gave me the same headshaking reaction in disbelief that often occurs when I see his work. We have an exceptionally talented photographer in our midst. If you’ve seen photos from the Bob Jones Nature Center, then you’ve seen his work, and the bulk of our “Destination” photos come from Bruce.

24

and everyone thought ‘oh, this is kind of nice’. What they didn’t realize until we moved here in August was the unrelenting heat!

Bruce grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, Ill. He moved down to the area in the late 90s and got into photography around the same time. He had been a bird watcher for a decade by then. It all started when he hooked up a camera to his birding scope (20x-60x magnifications).

DH: Was it a gradual transition into photography? BR: On our first trip to Africa a couple of years after moving here, the birds were an amazing, extraordinary part of the safari! The first day out we went to Nairobi National Park, and they had great birds and a field guide. I picked up the guide and it appealed to me on so many levels. Intellectual pursuit, putting the pieces together to identify what bird it was; we started memorizing the plate numbers of the birds! Then coming back here the birds aren’t as big and are harder to find, so we started to go on more trips. Nature and culture became a very important combination to us when we were traveling, and it’s continued. We don’t do very many birding-specific trips anymore, but we try to get a nature and culture element and food element.

DAVID HALL: What brought you to Southlake? BRUCE ROSENSTIEL: Company moved here in 1986, GTE directory company for Yellow Pages. They were surprised at the number of people who moved here; there was a great migration. They kept providing incentives to move here. They had orientations down here in March and April during wildflower season

DH: Most recently you went to Santa Fe. BR: I started a camera club at Bob Jones Nature Center in 2009. We’ve had a core group that continues to this day that has been growing, and we’ve taken several trips together. We’ve been to Big Bend, Oregon, and New Mexico. We take road trips and we photograph and learn from each other.

MAY 2014

southlake ARTS

The photo contest is the Bob Jones Nature Center photo contest. There are 20 miles of trails that are leased by the city from the [U.S. Army] Corps of Engineers. DH: What’s next on the horizon for Bruce and Sandi? BR: For photography, there are three aspects that always have to be considered. Content and Composition - finding something of interest to photograph and putting it into a way that is appealing to you and others. Technical Aspect - Exposure, Depth of Field, Focus Processing - What used to be the darkroom, where most of your famous photographers come from (Ansel Adams); they are very well known because of pushing the envelope in the darkroom. They pushed the dynamic range that was possible to print. Darker darks, lighter whites and the range in between, which made the photos much more dramatic. Elliott Porter, who made color photography accepted, had an amazing array of recipes that he’d use to get the photos either true or artistic. Now, with the digital age, you have a whole range of tools that you can use to take your photograph from a documentary photograph


to something more that appeals at a whole different level. I love continually learning how to use those tools and how to apply them to bring out what you want to bring out. With the camera club and teaching, I’m constantly learning. In order to teach, I have to edify those concepts clearly for my students to understand, which, in turn, deepens my understanding of the concepts. With the camera club, when we go out and shoot together, we share the photographs from that shoot. So, I could be standing right next to another photographer and get a completely different photograph. The lesson becomes how these other photographers are seeing our world differently that makes a photograph better with more elements, more layers, etc. Then, the other piece of that is the processing that we learn from each other. We’ll process each other’s photos with a completely different version and vision; sometimes it’s a completely different crop.

All of this has helped my own work evolve, because I’m seeing my own work differently because they are seeing it differently. What I absorb and learn from my peers is invaluable. I feel that my results and quality of images have accelerated over the past few years because of those experiences. DH: What content is next? BR: My favorite content is nature spectacles: capturing wildlife, birds in flight, birds nesting, feeding or behavioral sort of things; also, street portraits, great bone structure, skin tone, wrinkles, eyes; in native costume that’s completely different or foreign to me; and then beautiful landscapes. If I can have a trip that has those three combinations, that’s it for me. DH: What places have those three things? BR: Oahaca [Mexico], Florida, Thailand for faces landscapes and food. Next big trip will be to India - Northern India, Rajasthan, Corbett National Park at the foothills of the

Himalayas, Taj Mahal. We’ll have other small trips before then, but that’s our next big trip. DH: What’s your favorite part of photography? BR: I’m a color junkie! Lines, Patterns and Textures are great but color attracts me first. DH: If you weren’t a photographer what would you be? BR: A woodworker. southlake ARTS

ARTS CHAT:

Bruce Rosenstiel

DH: Who is your favorite photographer? BR: Art Morris - birdsasart.com DH: Where are you happiest? BR: At home, teaching, shooting, traveling. But nothing is more fun than having amazing things happening around you to shoot! DH: Where do you get your inspiration? BR: Sandi, of course! Even though I recognize in an urban setting the dirt, filth and poverty, I’m still looking for the beauty there. I rarely

share them because that’s not what it’s about for me. It’s a completely different story to tell. I like to look at things that are beautiful and attractive. I only watch the news if I want to be depressed.

DH: Where do you go to get away in DFW? BR: Here’s the thing. Neither one of us has commuted to work in a very long time. We’ve created a sanctuary at our home and there is no need to get away!

DH: What’s your idea of a perfect meal? BR: I should be completely sated at the end, one that give you a great big sigh at the end and makes you say, “Wow!”. It should be a sampling of tastes and textures. It should smell good, be presented in a beautiful manner and complemented by a really nice glass of wine.

DH: If you could have a meal with anyone, who would it be? BR: Roger Tory Peterson. He is the father of the Peterson Field Guides. He was a foremost ‘Birder” and he revolutionized bird watching by creating the Peterson method of bird identification. He was also an illustrator and artist.

DH: What are your travel essentials? BR: It has to be portable, no big suitcases! If you’ve ever not had your luggage show up and you’re four days in the rainforest sharing someone else’s toothbrush, you realize to pack light. This happened to us in Peru. DH: What is the most beautiful place in the world you’ve visited? BR: The sunrise at Big Bend is breathtaking.

DH: What is your most prized possession? BR: Sandi’s not a possession so it can’t be that. My tools! DH: What three things would you bring to a desert island? BR: Food, water, and my wife Sandi. See Bruce’s work at smallworldphotos.net.


DANCE

MARK MORRIS DANCE GROUP On Saturday, May 10th, the Winspear Opera House plays host to Mark Morris Dance Group. According to The New Yorker, Mark Morris is “America’s most exciting modern dance choreographer”. Once controversial, Morris’ pieces has changed the way audiences see modern dance. His pieces have become the standard of creativity of a new generation of dancers, choreographers and critics. Using live music in every performance, the group lives up to its reputation with a refined musicality. The Washington Post observed, “Morris’ ability to surmount musical difficulties that would flummox most anyone else is awe-inspiring.” Performance: 8 p.m. Saturday, May 10th at the Winspear Opera House For ticket information visit: http://www.attpac.org/your-visit/venues/winspear-opera-house/ 28

SUMMER CAMPS

S

ummer is one of the best times of the year for your kids to immerse themselves in the arts. Camps offer a great opportunity for your kids to not only spend a great deal of time learning, but often times the friendships that they make at camp will last them a lifetime. Sometimes seeing someone the same age as you that is ahead of you can be a great motivator.

Photography by Lauren Sullivan. Lauren’s portrait by Brian Guilliaux

Lauren uses processing to create bizarre images with unique statements. Delightful, dark humor is her specialty. Lauren Sullivan (17) and her family moved to Southlake when she was four years old, and, in 8th grade, she learned about Ansel Adams. Adams’ landscape photography inspired her to begin her work, which most recently includes Stucco drawings. Lauren has put together a book of 20 stucco portraits and, in the future, plans to do more portraits and concert photography. Lauren takes each piece, pulls it apart and puts it back together differently. It interests her how a piece can be both destroyed and complete at the same time.


10 QUESTIONS FOR LAUREN Who is your favorite photographer? Erik Johansson - a photographer and retouch artist from Sweden. If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be? I’d practice art on another medium. What is your favorite part of photography? The processing. Where are you happiest? Processing photos.

“LAUREN SULLIVAN IS A REBEL” - Brian Guilliaux

Who is your inspiration? Ansel Adams, Erik Johansson, Chris Wool, Wayne Wright. What is your most prized possession? My Nikon D600. What is your biggest challenge that you’ve overcome? Finding resources to do what I want to do with my art. If you could have a meal with anyone, whom would it be with? Kanye West If you were an inventor, what would you make? A teleportation system. Where do you go to get away? My car. What are you most proud of? The work I’ve created these past two years. What would you bring with you to a desert island? A bubble blower, a Skip-It and a unicycle.

DESTINATIONS

DESTINATION:

PARIS

Paris has all the elements that I look for in a great urban destination. It’s an easy city to explore on foot or by metro, and it offers exceptional museums, gardens, and public squares, a fascinating variety of architectural styles, great food and wine, and tremendously diverse people-watching opportunities. Each neighborhood has its own character and rewards leisurely visitors with an incredible array of sights, sounds, smells, and, for those who sample, flavors. Several visits have confirmed my impression that Paris will always be a great place to photograph. The iconic sites are worth

shooting again and again because...well, they are iconic! My challenge is to find a new perspective or to photograph them in exceptional light or weather conditions. The Latin Quarter, for example, offers endless variety of subject matter but becomes an extraordinary location on a rainy day when the produce stalls glisten after a downpour. The standard boat tour down the Seine is beautiful but is transformed in late afternoon light when heavy clouds provide a background. The Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel becomes an imposing silhouette when photographed against a dramatic sunset. But, my favorite subjects in Paris are the unexpected ones. Few tourists venture out to the Basilica of Saint Denis and, therefore, never see the most extraordinary stained glass windows in the city. Another surprise was the local market near the apartment in which we stayed on one trip. We were obviously not locals, and many of the vendors

were as entertained by us as we were by them and their wares. Several went so far as to pose their merchandise for the best shots! And nothing beats simply wandering around photographing everyday life: a random group of people sharing a park bench, children playing, street musicians, quirky window displays, and unexpected reflections. Take your time; keep your eyes open; always carry extra batteries and memory cards! Of course, the best light for photography is in the early morning and late afternoon, just before and just after sunrise and sunset. Ideally, one would nap or, at least, rest in between these two prime times, especially when planning to photograph illuminated monuments at night. But there is so much to see and do, so many places to explore, and so many tempting restaurants and cafes to try that it’s nearly impossible to take time off. A successful trip to Paris is completely exhausting but thoroughly satisfying! southlake ARTS

DYSWIS?

HOT DIGGITY DOG! This month’s winners of “Do You See What I See?” came up with some pleasant surprises and quite diverse creative solutions. Kudos to Toni Huntington, who rotated the original scribble to present three different visions: a dog on a skateboard, which from the beginning I thought was an easy and obvious figure to carve out, Texas Spring flowers with grapes, and a potted figurine. “Violin Playing Mantis” by Maria Kaplan was a huge surprise! The wheels were seen as eyes, and the violin and antennae sitting on a chair capped the image. Ava’s “Car on Fire” is certainly out there, filled with lots of imagination. A round of applause to all these creative residents! Now, we have a new one for you to explore. Remember to rotate them and examine them from all different angles. Good luck, and I can’t wait to see your imaginative visions! Lamberto™ Send your artwork, no later than June 6th, to: Lamberto™ “Do You See What I See?” HMPS Publishing 630 E.

OUTSIDE THE BUBBLE

The Miracle of Chance

A

Story by Cherie Fruehan

rt is a miracle. A bold statement no doubt, yet it is the absolute truth. Ask anyone who has been seduced into a painting by its alluring brushstrokes, rendered breathless simply by watching the powerful movement of a dancer, or perhaps stood in awe of an eternal story told by a one-second snapshot in time; and they will concur. The thing that stands behind each work of art is even more miraculous, and that is the artist himself. How is it that one person can bring into being an interpretation of their very soul through their chosen medium? Where does one acquire this gift and what forms their passion of expression? Is it environment? Is it God? Is it CHANCE? For one artist, it is a combination of all of the above. Born into a family of composers, writers, painters and photographers Brian Guilliaux’s journey has been a symphony, perhaps a cacophony, of events. Dropping out of school in 9th grade, a subsequent visit to his sister that same day resulted in his introduction to the director of the Dance Department at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. He was accepted to the dance program on the spot, and Guilliaux recalls, “that morning not only changed my life, but it literally saved my life”. After graduating from BTWHSPVA, he received a scholarship to attend the prestigious North Carolina School for the Arts and studied under some of the greatest ballet dancers in the world. It was there that he happened upon his first camera in the unclaimed lost and found of the ballet studio. As he puts it he then “became obsessed with photography”. His naturally gifted ‘eye’ made him one of the most sought after photographers in the country. For over 25 years he has been shooting and creating awe-inspiring images. Among those are subjects from his world of dance, graceful and strong bodies in mid air, frozen in time for the viewer to relish what the eye would have missed had Guilliaux not captured that exact moment. For years, he shot with a relentless fervor and passion, falling in love with each of his subjects, pouring his soul into his work almost to the point of burn out. Until recently. Guilliaux’s most recent images are some of his best yet. They are new creations that are REPURPOSED from familiar subjects of the past. He won’t divulge the exact process, but he will tell you: “They are not created in Photoshop. They are created with eyes closed, completely improvisational, which is how a true artist lives. It is accidental poetry.” He calls this series CHANCE. ..... for Brian “art is a miracle composed of faith, obsession, trust and the courage to fall in love EVERYDAY”.

La Fin du Monde A Triple-style Golden Ale

Origin : Chambly Quebec Color : Blonde with a golden hue Smell : Floral bouquet, aromas of honey, spice, coriander, malt and alcohol Flavor: Mildly yeasty with a complex palate of malt, fruit and spice notes followed by a smooth dry finish La Fin du Monde (literally French for “The End of the World” as per the translation on the back of each bottle) is a Belgianstyle tripel and bottle-conditioned golden ale introduced in July 1994. The name is claimed to derive from the European explorers’ belief that they had reached the end of the world when they discovered America. The colour is a cloudy blonde with a golden hue. Though similar to Belgian tripels in appearance, La Fin du Monde is less bitter and more spicy (featuring coriander and orange peel), more similar to Tripel Karmeliet than standard tripels like Chimay and Westmalle.


Shown: Ami chairs, playful Nido poufs and Zoe rug.
