About

A unique blend of contemporary elements that make the paintings stimulating, unique and interactive. Creativity meets great execution.

Specimen: 27 - Michael Mapes

Michael Mapes Specimen: 27
Each of his
pieces is constructed from what he describes as “biographical DNA” – the
little fragments of physical information he mixes to create a finished image.
Each final piece is comprised of thousands of individual specimens of
dissected photographs and genetic information about the subject: hair,
fingernails, scent, eyelashes, fingerprints, makeup, handwriting, breath. the
representations are dissected and reconstructed through artistic
interpretation invoking entomological, forensic and artistic methods.

  • Kerry Miller  (+)

    Biography : KERRY MILLER "I am passionate about my work and, being a perfectionist, am slightly obsessive about getting the detail just right" After many years of working with collage and mixed media, British artist Kerry Miller began exploring ways in which she could make use of old, discarded books. She experimented with dissecting and rebuilding them to produce the unique assemblages in her 'reimagining the book' series. For each piece she works on, Kerry uses only the illustrations found within that particular book, having first removed the written word. Colour is added using inks or watercolours where she considers that they will enrich and enhance the final effect, adding a sense of depth and energy. These intricately worked 3D books provide tantalising glimpses into a rich past, becoming miniature worlds that allow the viewer to simply tumble into them. The books she uses are variously sourced and carefully selected for their illustrations and character, whilst taking into account her perception of how the finished piece will look. She uses only old books as they lend themselves to this treatment in a way that modern books do not. "I enjoy the fact that I can even make use of books in a condition which most people would dismiss as unusable. For instance, I discovered an 1868 copy of Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management in a junk shop. Although complete, it was little more than a pile of loose pages held together with an elastic band. Inside, however, the lovely illustrations were revealed to be in perfect condition. The rugged and gnarled appearance of the book has been carefully preserved, which I believe greatly enhances the character of the finished piece". Kerry views her work as a collaboration, a partnership with the past, giving new purpose to old books that may otherwise never see the light of day or simply end up in recycling. "As technology threatens to replace the printed word, there has never been a better time to reimagine the bo

  • Andrew Myers  (+)

    Biography : BIOGRAPHY Andrew Myers was born in Braunshweig, Germany, and raised in Ciudad Real, Spain. He now resides in Laguna Beach, California, where he has lived since attending the Laguna College of Art and Design (formerly the Art Institute of Southern California). The first time he set foot in the classroom, he was amazed to see students depicting live nude models in clay; a seemingly archaic art form he had only seen in books. Distinct. Expressive. Tactile. These are perhaps the three most fitting words to describe Andrew’s unique brand of contemporary artwork. But linguistic descriptions fail to adequately capture the progressive mixed media works he creates with screws, oil paint, charcoal, bronze, cement, and found objects. To truly experience Andrew’s art, it must be seen and even touched. One of the artist’s favorite memories was watching a blind man experience his work for the first time. As the man ran his hands over a large three-dimensional portrait tediously constructed with tens of thousands of screws over hundreds of man hours, his blank expression suddenly transformed into a warm smile. He could feel what others could only see. Artist as Translator, Not Creator Andrew does not consider himself a “creator” of art. As a man of faith, he believes that God is the only one with that privilege. Rather, his role as an artist is to enter that lonely, honest, painful place most of us spend our whole lives hiding from. Once there, he harnesses his creativity and technical abilities to translate authentic emotions, fragmented thoughts, and fleeting moments into timeless, tangible expressions of love and loss. Screw by Screw Though Andrew is best known for his time-intensive screw pieces, his work spans multiple genres and mediums, including sculpting, painting, and drawing. He most enjoys fast, expressive pieces like charcoal sketches, yet at the same time, feels that true art requires struggle, energy, time, and sacrific

  • Judy Stabile  (+)

    Biography : Judy Stabile's paintings and sculptures are exhibited in many prominent private and corporate collections worldwide. Her work can be seen in New York, London, Taiwan, Paris, Japan and her native state, California among other locations Born in Los Angeles, Stabile attended the Chouinard Art Institute from 1968-1971, where she was exposed to the light and space movement. In the early seventies Stabile found mentors in the hard-edged abstractionists Lorder Feitelson and Helen Lundeberg. Their faith in geometry and a neo-constructive approach confirmed Stabile's formal sensibilities. She moved to her Venice studio in 1973 and has been well established in the California and International art world since her first exhibition at the Molly Barnes Gallery in 1984. Judy is known for her use of robust geometric shapes and luminous colors. Stabile is now creating a collection of 'cutout' glass and aluminum wall sculptures while continuing to expand and develop her iconic cone series. Her "cylinder paintings" were recently exhibited at the 2013 'Art Miami' Art Expo. Judy Stabile now works out of her studio in Culver City, California. "My approach to painting is instinctual. I like colors and shapes that exist in nature; the cone, the triangle and cylinder. To me it's all about creating an equilibrium and integrating that 'geometric interplay' with emotional and sensual expression."
