Eli/Amy Roberts

 

Artist Statement:

I am the alter ego of a realist painter.  My body of work is the flotsam and jetsam of abstract verse that encircles each of her photorealistic pieces and needs to be expressed as well.  As Eli I give voice to these textures, colors and forms in visual poems that represent the same world in which my realist counterpart travels.

Carolyn Lee

 

Artist Statement:

My name is Carolyn Lee and I have a studio at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, MA and every spare table at my home. I have many interests and my passion is whatever I am working on at the moment. Family, friends, nature, and life in general are a constant inspiration and guide me from one project to another. Most of my work is saturated with color and whimsy but I also like the starkness of black and white as in this series Toilet Paper Rolls – Deconstructed. This is a true life experience series that started in April 2020 when the “toilet paper crisis” hit. I had just replenished my supply with a 24 pack before news broke people were making a mad dash to the stores to get their TP.  I was also 3 weeks into a 6 week printing class that was abruptly cancelled so my current passion was collagraph.

Elizabeth Sheehan

 

Artist Statement:

Elizabeth Sheehan started out as a Boston based artist, who first pursued her BA. in English with a minor in psychology from Eastern Nazarene College, Quincy, MA. After receiving her degree, she waited a year and began attending Massachusetts College of Art, where she received her B.F.A. in Painting in the year 1999. She taught art and was a preschool teacher for many years. Her work has been shown in Boston, Cambridge and Dorchester galleries as well as Open Studios in Dorchester and Somerville. She then moved to the Northshore where her work was shown at; Gasworks, SCAM (Salem Collective of Art and Musicians), Salem Arts Association, Marblehead Arts Association and Arcworks at the community Art Center in Peabody. Elizabeth now lives in Lowell, where she is a member of Gallery Z and The Brush Gallery. She has sold many of works to private collectors around The United States. She finds an interesting parallel between the visual arts and the art of letters, particular that which involves poetry. She believes that both involve the use of ordinary images, ideas, that can be juxtaposed in such a way as to somehow become extraordinary. She found herself, as a poet who used words to convey imagery, wanting to create paintings with the same dreamlike quality by combining, fusing and balancing the conceptual with the traditional. It is her hope to create an inner land of mystery, and an opening of the pregnant silence of being where creativity, understanding, wisdom, empathy and celebration may dwell.

About these Pieces:

Lolita’s art is often inspired  by nature and nature’s colors. “Rebirth”  and “In the Garden” was inspired by flowers growing and nature coming back to life in the spring after the cold winter. “The Song Tree “: listening the many of kinds of birds talking  to each other,  during my nature walks. Listening to my husband repeating their calls and the birds resounding to him over and over.  It is also fun to watch the birds building their nests in the spring. Occasionally I see birds feed their babies then give them  flying lessons through my dining room window. These simple joys and relaxation has made life stresses and  the Coronavirus easier to manage.  Cool, warm, and complimentary colors were introduced. In the series of glass paintings. Colors can affect moods, reactions, environmental comfort, seasons, energy, discomfort and temperatures.

Margarita Krylova

 

Artist Statement:

The focus of my work is the inevitable link between humans and the natural world. In my portraiture, nature is both the backdrop for the subject’s experience, as well as an expression of their internal state. Nature becomes a vehicle for soul searching – my subjects return to what makes life possible and connect with an entity that is infinitely more powerful and eternal than any individual and all of society. It is humbling, and perhaps calming, to realize that even at best of times, there is only so much in our control.

“Drunk Woods of Wonder” 

Encaustic, ink on rice paper, mixed media on Panel

34”x32” (Framed)

$1800

My father, Viktor Krylov, has been into woodworking for as long as I can remember – I grew up surrounded by his masks and carvings. Four years ago we began to collaborate – he carves creatures from wood and I transform them into paintings.  This piece is the result of such a collaboration. The gnome was created by my father, and I layered ink drawing, encaustic, leaves, and other mix media to create the forest he calls home.

Year: 2021

“Kaleidoscope Waves”

Oil on stretched Canvas

34”x38” (Framed)

$1700

This painting is of my best friend whom I’ve known since my early teens. The idea was born after our picnic by a lake – the water was especially sparkly that day and full of little fish. Instead of painting that which mesmerized us, I painted the feeling of being mesmerized and hypnotized by nature.

Year: 2021

Kathleen McNeil

 

Artist Statement:

For many years as an attorney I photographed crime scenes at all times of the day, in all types of light. Capturing the details of the scene from all perspectives – laying on the ground or standing against a wall – it trained my eye and taught me to see.

I have participated in juried competitions at the Arlington Center for the Arts, the First Legacy Juried Art Exhibition in Easton, the Helen Bumpus Gallery in Duxbury, and the Tewksbury Art Center where I won third place and an honorable mentioned. The Lowell Community Health center accepted three of my prints for inclusion in their art collection.

The following galleries have exhibited my work: the Stove Factory in Somerville, the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University, the Griffin Gallery in Winchester, the Artists’ League, Health Fitness in Arlington, and Gallery Z in Lowell.

Blake Brasher

 

Artist Statement:

In my work I am trying to capture a feeling of permanence that is wrapped up in the balance between dynamic, shifting elements. My paintings have a sense of self containment that seems to protect them from the entropic forces of nature. They present the viewer with novel systems that encourage different ways of thinking, and they offer resting places for eyes grown weary from existential anxiety.

About These Paintings:

This is a body of work that I completed in December of 2019 while I was an artist in residence at the Studios at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA. My fiancée and I were due to have our first child in a couple months, we had just found a house to buy together, and I was spending my evenings listening to an audiobook on natural childbirth while working late nights in the studio. It was a period of deep reflection for me, thinking about how much my life was going to change. I had no idea, of course, how the whole world was going to change over the course of the next year. These are all abstract paintings on canvas stretched over gallery depth stretcher bars. They are not framed, and are ready to hang with a wire installed on the back.

Ortha Splingaerd

 

Artist Statement:

From the moment I could pick up a crayon I’ve been obsessed with color. I narrowly avoided being thrown out of kindergarten in 1949 for using the “wrong” colors, but purple and green were my favorites and I thought they made beautiful hair. While it is rare for me to create two alike, my paintings all have a common element – a carefully selected palette for a bold, joyful color burst that soothes the soul.

Raksha Soni

 

Artist Statement:

After 20 years of diligent work as a software Engineer for Siebel Systems and Oracle, Raksha Soni began an epic second act: to follow her true calling for Art. She studied fine arts while she was in school and college. She founded Brush & Paisley in 2017, to bring her art to new audiences. As an artist she is prolific and has had over a dozen exhibitions where she has showcased her signature style; from intricate Indian folk art to lush, opulent landscapes that capture the nostalgia and emotion of the nature. Along with furthering her own journey as an artist, she teaches young kids and adults helping them express and harness their creativity and find their artistic voice. She primarily works with oils, acrylics and watercolors. Her artwork has received numerous awards, and has been displayed at various charity in both India and the US. 

In her own words “Art is a foundational part of my life, and I try to spend my free time experimenting with it. I express my gratitude, emotions, and admiration for nature and Mother Earth through color. My inspiration comes from the many sources: places I travel to, nature, architecture, culture and the people around me. The creative process gives me tremendous joy, satisfaction, and a sense of great accomplishment, and I hope this beautiful journey of self-discovery continues forever.”

Hilary Hanson Bruel

 

Artist Statement:

I am a (re)emerging artist from the Boston area who works with encaustic paint. My multi-layer paintings are studies in color, composition, and texture that highlight the unique properties of the medium, and which are informed by my background in both fine arts and graphic design. Working abstractly allows me to focus on the process of painting, while the resulting piece can evoke a different emotional response from each viewer.
