Artist Statement

Art has always been part of my life. Throughout the years I have studied oils, printmaking, and watercolors but I loved working with colored pencils as soon as I discovered using them as a fine art medium. I work realistically, and I like the smooth texture and fine details that can be achieved with colored pencils. I am particularly attracted to the different effects that can be created and how portable colored pencils are.

My pieces are inspired by my love of nature, travel, and the beauty I find in everyday objects. I work from my own photo references and am always taking pictures as I never know where I’ll find inspiration. I look for subjects with interesting lighting and textures. My paintings start with a line drawing; and using a heated drawing board, I begin the process of applying pigment. Working with a light touch, I slowly build up and blend the color, sometimes adding up to twenty layers. I enjoy the process of watching my painting slowly emerge.

Primarily a colored pencil artist, I have enjoyed extending my artistry into other mediums. For the past several years I have enjoyed East Asian brush painting. I like the contrast between the very slow process of creating a colored pencil painting layer upon layer and the spontaneity of brush painting where I try to convey the essence of a subject by using minimal strokes of ink and watercolor. My latest journey has been into the world of alcohol ink painting.

Artist Biography

Jim grew up in southern California. He graduated from Long Beach State College, Long Beach California, in 1967 with a BA in fine art. Through the 70's, Jim continued to paint. During that time, Jim started cutting cabochons. A cabochon is a style of cutting semiprecious gem material and has a flat back and a domed top. Most often agates and jaspers are cabochons cuts. With a large collection of cabochons, it was time for Jim to learn how to make jewelry. With some help from other jewelers, the learning experience began.

In the early 80's, Jim took a number of classes at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco. For 30 years, Jim worked in the jewelry trade. Part of the process of creating custom jewelry included carving wax models to be cast by the lost wax casting process. The creation of wax models for jewelry and bronze sculpture are much the same. The transition was seamless. As a lapidary artist, Jim's bronze pieces showcase his stones.  

 

Artist Statement

I have two bodies of work. In my earlier work, the PRIMORDIAL RECOLLECTIONS series, I used animal bones for the foundation of my pieces. As animal bones have a sculptural quality on their own, I gave them a new identity. Not just bones. While these pieces are highly modified, they provide an opportunity to showcase the stones that I have cut.

My current focus is on bowls and vases. Most often, a vase has one hole and is the same on all sides. Expanding on that concept, I am making vases that have two sides. Each side has a different look. Some of my vases have multiple holes. Typically, my vases are about two inches thick, front to back. If you tire of looking at one side, you can turn it around. Two different looks in one vase.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Shannon Sadulsky 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.

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

Artist Biography

Fine art photographer Shannon Sadulsky is often mistaken for a painter. Even though she has explored painting as well as many other mediums, the look and feel of the impressionistic and surreal styles that she is influenced by show strongly in her chosen medium of photography. She has used photography to create fine art for 30 years. “Creating an illusion is really what motivates me. Water and clouds created out of unusual objects or abstract pieces created out of the ordinary images. I wouldn’t be satisfied by just photographing the world around me. I need more of a creating process. I need to manipulate my subject.”

A good example is a recent landscape series where she created impressionistic landscapes. Forming her miniature scenes out of everyday objects such as plastic wrap, tissue paper or tin foil, she presents the viewer with dream-like scenes that are often mistaken as paintings or actually photographed landscapes. “I just want the viewer to experience a unique piece of art. A unique piece of photography. A piece doesn’t always start with a meaning or motive for me. Just a general idea. The process of creating is where all that happens for me. I really want to do justice to the practice of using photography in a way that rivals the painting as fine art. Thank you Alfred Stieglitz!”

Shannon attended Parsons School of Design and her background is in commercial photography, photo styling/ assisting and textile design.

Artist Statement

Using photography to create my artwork stems from a lifelong interest in photography as fine art. Creating surreal and impressionistic pieces that are heavily focused on the quality of light and subject matter derived from unexpected objects is a consistent theme in my work. The designing of small sets prior to taking the image, or manipulation of the image after, is as much a part of the creative process as taking the picture. I’ve always been intrigued by art that is really an illusion. Creating mountains out of paper. Water out of plastic. Mirroring or blending of images to create entirely new subject matter. The surprise of, and interest in, how an image was created is the most satisfying part of being an artist.
