Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Nicole Wilde has been selected as one of the four winning artists of the gallery’s recent 17th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition.  Nicole will now have a month-long solo art exhibition and she will be featured on the gallery’s front page, in the Gallery’s YouTube Channel, as well as in the “Solo Art Series” archive.

Nicole Wilde is an award-winning artist based in the California, USA. She will now be promoted by the gallery with an extensive public relations campaign.

For this solo exhibition, the Gallery will distribute, promote and circulate press releases to over 550+ major News Outlets, including Premium FOX, CBS, and NBC Affiliated Sites, with guaranteed inclusion on Google News & Bing News. The Gallery will also provide social media distribution through LST gallery’s broad social media network.

In addition, as part of her award package, Nicole will now be featured as a Light Space & Time – Artwork Archive promoted artist.  

Nicole’s art will also be featured on the gallery’s YouTube Channel and with an event postcard.

The “Solo Art Series” is a series of monthly solo art exhibitions for established artists who have a body of work to present to the public.  Artist participants were asked to submit the following 3 components for the “Solo Art Series” competition: 1. Their art.  2. Their artist biography.  3.  Their artist statement.  These elements were evaluated and judged, which resulted in the selection of the artists who will be featured in individual month-long solo art exhibitions.  This was the 17th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

Below are Nicole’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 20 of her digital art photographs.  We hope that you will take the time to read Nicole’s information and to take a look at her artwork.

Artist Biography:

Nicole Wilde was born in Brooklyn, New York. She grew up writing poetry and short stories, followed by song lyrics, some of which were put to music in the bands in which she played bass guitar. However, Nicole always felt California’s siren call of freedom and creativity.

In 1987, she moved to Los Angeles. Longing for a way to express her creativity in a visual format, she purchased a camera and began learning photography through books, online videos, and workshops. She expanded her knowledge of Photoshop in the same way and eventually combined the two disciplines, thereby finally finding her creative outlet in digital art.

Nicole’s other lifelong passion is animals. She has volunteered at rescues and shelters, photographed dogs to improve their chances of adoption, and co-ran a rescue sanctuary in California for wolves and wolfdogs, where three of the residents came home to live with her for ten years until their passing. She is also an avid bird-watcher. It was inevitable that Nicole’s love of animals and nature would find its way into her art. All images begin with one or more of her photographs, which are taken in natural settings, zoos, or sanctuaries. The photos are then combined, altered, or enhanced using equal parts Photoshop, creativity, and imagination to create a work of digital art. Nicole’s artwork has won international awards, been displayed in galleries, and been featured in magazines.

Nicole and her husband live in southern California with their two rescued northern breed dogs and boatloads of dog hair.

Artist Statement:

Animals. Nature. Emotion. Connection. These are the things that drive my passion to create art. My work is about the emotional life of animals, the interconnection of all beings, and the unseen magic that surrounds us all. Each piece begins with one or more of my photographs. By applying equal parts Photoshop and imagination, bit by bit an image is transformed into a fantastical universe, or an artistic portrait with deep texture and emotion. My hope is that my art touches the soul, stirs the emotions, increases our respect and appreciation for animals, and acts as a catalyst to reflect on the beauty and magic that is within us and all around us.

Below are Victoria’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 15 or her paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read Victoria’s information and to take a look at her art.

Artist Biography:

Victoria Kitanov is an Australian Sydney-based artist & sculptor with a love of lifelong learning, a passion for portraiture, and a fascination with Australia’s maritime heritage. Her first marine paintings, The Boatman: Portrait of Gary Richardson (2016) and The Master Modeller: Portrait of David Glasson (2017) were inspired during this period. Both paintings debuted as part of the Naval Heritage Collection at the 2017 My State Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart, Tasmania. These artworks reappeared at the 2019 My State Australian Wooden Boat Festival, along with a selection of Victoria’s marine paintings which were carefully selected to compliment the display of built-to-scale boat replicas crafted by the ‘master modeller’ himself – David Glasson.

Victoria’s creative career commenced in commercial art & graphic design before moving into the publishing world as a children’s book illustrator in the early 1980s. During this period, Victoria was regularly invited to talk about illustration and entertain hundreds of schoolchildren for Children’s Book Week and other literary events. From 1990–97 Victoria was nominated as the approved re-illustrator of May Gibbs classic gumnut babies for Angus & Robertson Publishers, and during this period illustrated several books, including Ten Little Gumnuts, A Gumnuts Year, and a series of 6 smaller format books written in the classic Gibbs’ style.

By the late 1990s, Victoria left her career in illustration to continue tertiary studies in History with Honours at The University of Sydney, followed by a career as a Library and Information professional, and later the Australian Public Service in Canberra. From 2007-2016 Victoria was employed as Information Manager and Library Officer for Sea Power Centre – Australia, and from 2016-2019, provided archival skills with the Royal Australian Navy’s Heritage Collection in Sydney. However, the call to take the plunge was strong and Victoria launched her own creative business ENTRÉE TO ARTS PTY LIMITED, which aims to assist adult learners to tap into their innate creativity and wellbeing through the visual arts.

The other wing of Victoria’s business is VICTORIA KITANOV FINE ARTS, which has enabled Victoria to build an impressive portfolio by creating unique and original marine artworks with a focus on Australian maritime heritage and storytelling. Victoria is also an Exhibiting Member of the Australian Society of Marine Artists Incorporated. Artistic Inspiration: “Genre painting that tells a story or inspires one! I am inspired by the work of artists including Joaquin Sorolla, Edgar Degas, Henri Toulouse Lautrec, Anders Zorn, Elizabeth Vigee le Brun, and sculptors including Malvina Hoffman and Auguste Rodin.” Media Choice: I love the beauty and flow of watercolour and the light of pastels, but also work in oils and acrylics on occasion.

Artist Statement:

Once my nemesis watercolour has become my favourite in which to capture and convey the story I wish to tell. Equally, I adore pastel – occasionally underpainted with watercolour, for its ability to capture light, convey texture, and create atmosphere. Quite by chance and circumstance, I stumbled into the wonderful world of marine art and it is as if I was meant to be there all the time.

All the threads of my life: a fascination with people, with the art of storytelling and oral history, my roots in illustration, a love of lifelong learning, an abiding interest in history, an intrepid curiosity with exploration and travel, and a desire to understand the world around me, draws me to want to reveal and represent the flotsam and jetsam of our maritime heritage.

The workboats, the boat sheds and bridge works, our vanishing maritime industries, model boat makers, sailors, canine mascots, and all the random stories are engaging to me. In other words, of abiding interest is the storytelling aspect told through the medium of visual art, and with this is an urgent desire to honour and capture an impression before it recedes out of sight and into distant memory.

The gallery’s competition for March 2020 was the 10th Annual “Figurative” 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 April 2020 online group art exhibition.

The gallery received 623 entries from 27 different countries from around the world, as well as from 30 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.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Mira DeMartino has been selected as one of the four winning artists of the gallery’s recent 14th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition.  Mira will now have a month-long solo art exhibition and she will be featured on the gallery’s front page, in the Gallery’s YouTube Channel, as well as in the “Solo Art Series” archive.

Mira is an award-winning artist based in New Jersey, USA. She will now be promoted by the gallery with an extensive public relations campaign.

For this solo exhibition, the Gallery will distribute, promote and circulate press releases to over 550+ major News Outlets, including Premium FOX, CBS, and NBC Affiliated Sites, with guaranteed inclusion on Google News & Bing News. The Gallery will also provide social media distribution through LST gallery’s broad social media network.

In addition, as part of her award package, Mira will now be featured as a Light Space & Time – Artwork Archive promoted artist.  

Mira’s art will also be featured on the gallery’s YouTube Channel and with an event postcard.

The “Solo Art Series” is a series of monthly solo art exhibitions for established artists who have a body of work to present to the public.  Artist participants were asked to submit the following 3 components for the “Solo Art Series” competition: 1. Their art.  2. Their artist biography.  3.  Their artist statement.  These elements were evaluated and judged, which resulted in the selection of the artists who will be featured in individual month-long solo art exhibitions.  This was the 12th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

Below is Mira’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 25 of her AlumixArt™ Mixed Media sculptures.  We hope that you will take the time to read Mira’s information and to take a look at her artwork.

Artist Biography

A decade ago Mira developed her own technique of sculpting she calls AlumixArt™ Mixed Media, which consists mostly of aluminum. Using this technique, she explores the area of modern spirituality. She challenges the viewers to connect with their potential of self-empowerment through art. Mira has a Masters in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland and an MBA from University of Strathclyde Glasgow, Scotland. Her artwork can be found in private collections in Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Singapore and the United States.

Artist Statement

I believe in self-empowerment. I believe that what we see around us influences our mental attitude. I create sculptures as a tool for self-empowerment, and I call them "Artfirmations". I believe that seeing the Artfirmation sculpture daily at home or the office is like a repeated visual affirmation statement, in a beautiful piece of art.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Sarah St. Lawrence has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Sarah is an award-winning photographer based in Canada. Sarah was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 14th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Sarah’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Sarah’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

 

Artist Biography

Sarah St. Lawrence is a Canadian based artist, most frequently working in the medium of Photography. Hailing from St. Catharines, Ontario, she found herself drawn to “West Coast Living” in 2004, and relocated to Victoria, British Columbia where she still resides. A Ukrainian background, on her mother’s side, led Sarah to learn and pursue traditional Ukrainian Egg Design in her twenties. Her passion for traditional crafts like this and others, including crochet and knitting, offer fuel for some of her photographic works.

The beauty surrounding “the feminine” and her love for the female nude are a major theme in many of Sarah’s photography and paintings. In her photographic “Egg Series” Sarah uses her own body, egg art, and eye to capture these images, later publishing both Creation and Genesis from this work. Although she studied Fine Arts at the University of Guelph, Canada, from 1999-2000, most of her education stems from less-formal training. She was pleased to be asked to participate in Light, Space, Time’s 9th Annual “All Women” Online Art Competition for January, and looks forward to continuing to build her photography career.

In her spare time, she writes poetry (publishing her first poetry book, From Dark To Light, in 2016), continues to create music and expand deeper into Classical guitar, and designs knit and crochet items for sale, as well as spins wool by spindle and wheel. She has held an Independent Studio Practice in British Columbia since her relocation to B.C., and her work can be found in private collections though out North America. Although strongly drawn to the Visual Arts, Sarah’s other main interest lies in the Healing Arts and, when not engaging in various creative pursuits, she can be found delving into and continually learning about herbalism, energy medicine, aromatherapy and yoga. In her spare time, she blends these two interests by creating natural and medicinal products for retail.

 

Artist Statement

Within the confines of my creative work, my objective is to merge the duality, experienced by the conscious mind of humankind, into one internal space, thereby assuaging fears—caused by perceived separation—and fostering new feelings of connectivity. In the creation of my art, I am interested in examining how seemingly unrelated forces, deemed in opposition, are actually mutually supportive, at a fundamental level.

I am intuitively moved most often towards first finding, and then creating a photo/piece—striking a balance between the unadulterated, and my own creative input. I find that unifying documentary and expressive approaches operates as a means to convey a greater truth.

I often (but not always) find myself utilizing “found” lighting, and approach this (initially) by employing minimal involvement with lighting or objects, to enhance the quality of “found spaces” and adhere to the environmental location/conditions already presented. I find a greater integrity for what I am aiming to produce, with this “non” method and approach; intuition is kept open to other avenues of information, and the original feeling/impulse that brought me to the space, is maintained.

I enjoy exploring universal concepts, and cosmic patterns (as above, so below) and take particular interest in how these cosmic forces influence modern day societal discord. I feel modern society’s excessive interest in over-expansion, is causing a subsequent disconnect from the Whole, leading to feelings of isolation.

I can experience disintegration from the Whole as a movement towards photographic metaphoric or poetic “microscopy”, undoing the Gestalt found when a modern fast-paced society blurs details, thus, losing focus. In studying these spaces of disconnect, I find greater truths are revealed in small spaces, be it small in meaning (and often unnoticed), or size. Often these spaces of observation—studying the small to know the large—present truth as a gateway to change: a concept I wish to express in my art. And in doing so, I seek to make harmonious, that which is commonly seen as disjunct.

My objective is to allow my art to serve as a metaphoric reminder of common cosmic truths or unifying concepts, encouraging those who feel they are in a space of disconnect, to seek to find solace in similarities and parallels between things normally viewed in opposition, and in doing so, confirm “similarity” as the glue that hosts and holds “opposites” together. Through my work, I have discovered that opposites become complements to a system in balance, and we as society and embodied beings are, at our most healthful, designed for the “middle path”, and so must pursue a balanced life in order to thrive in all facets.

My art often informs me of the weakening of the over-indulged Patriarchal forces, and thus, I am frequently reminded of this one key element of interconnectedness: how each “thing” at its extreme becomes its opposite. In tandem to these feelings runs the concept of the lost female force/power in modern times, exemplified by softness, stillness, solitude, respite, darkness, quietude, substance, nourishment, and beauty for beauty’s sake. I find my art often informs me of the rising tide of this overdue force, as it takes its rightful place from a position of begging to one of insistence.
