The gallery’s competition for February 2021 was the 12th Annual “Abstracts” Online Art Competition. 2D and 3D, artists, (including photography & digital art) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s March 2021 online group art exhibition.

Artists were asked for their interpretation of the “Abstracts” theme by submitting their best non-objective and non-representational art for this competition. The submission process and competition for the artists began in January 2021 and concluded on February 25, 2021.

The gallery received 1,206 entries from 34 different countries from around the world, as well as from 31 different states and the District of Columbia.   

The exhibition has been divided into three media categories.  Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3 Dimensional Art categories.  In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from all the media categories.

The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.

All winning entries will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of March 2021. Thereafter, the artworks and links to the artist’s websites will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives.

Congratulations to our artists who made our 12th Annual “Abstracts” Art Exhibition so successful this month. At any time, we invite our winning artists and other interested visitors to link their websites to the Gallery’s archive page for further ongoing promotion.

For the second year in a row, Renée Phillips, the Director of Manhattan Arts International and the Curator of Our Bond With Nature on The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS website exhibition asked me to be a Guest Judge and to give a special award for the artists juried into this exhibition.

I chose Helena Cooper’s abstract photography as my special award-winning artist. Helena’s colorful interpretation of nature’s beauty provides a glimpse of tones, textures, and energy that is rarely noticed by the rest of us when we are in the midst of nature. 

Her nature photography contains either an explosion of colors or a muted version of earth, water and form.  Though her artworks appear to be colorful abstracts, they produce a subtle experience of the natural world in the viewer. 

Below are her artist biography and statement, along with 5 images of her outstanding abstract photography.

Artist Biography:

Helena Cooper was born and lived in São Paulo, Brazil, until the age of 25. She grew up in a family of artists, surrounded by sculptors, painters, designers, jewelers, and photographers. Helena studied painting at the Escola Brasil Dois Pontos, the prestigious Art Institute of Brazil which has launched many of the country’s greatest contemporary artists as well as The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

As an abstract artist, Helena’s paintings and photography both reflect mysterious depths of nature. Through photography, Cooper explores the potential for water and earth to nourish, heal and restore the mind, body, and soul.

The Finger Lakes region in upstate NY provides a perfect venue for this expression; its gorges, forests, lakes, and streams are Helena’s inspiration. This is where she lives.

Artist Statement:

“I found comfort in nature during a challenging time in my life. I started to photograph at gorges, lakes, and streams near where I live in the Finger Lakes. Through the camera lens, a decomposing leaf in a small puddle of water or a beam of light refracted in a stream transforms into a whole universe of new perspectives.”  Helena’s website: helenacooperart.com
