In The Mind Of An Artist | THE INTERVIEW

Introducing THE INTERVIEW

‘In The Mind Of An Artist’ aims to uncover the artistic mind, the perspective of individuals living under the influence of art.   By and large we live collective lives, but artists see life a bit; well sometimes very different than others.  As some seem to float from one artwork to another; others are deeply encrusted in their work making it difficult to catch that ride offered by the world around them, creating realities in which one person (the artist) must navigate in order to survive in society.  If you are an artist and this speaks to you, please contact me if you like to share your story.

Through these articles artists will share their intimate views. Talking about how their perspectives changed as they trapped themselves in the cobwebs of art.

By design ‘In The Mind Of An Artist’ will not contain any images of artwork, biography, profile, lists of exhibitions, books or the artist’s creative process.

The goal here is to give the artist a chance to pause from the creation of art for a moment and explore the self.

THE INTERVIEW

This series also has an interview component.  You may choose to answer all, some or none of the questions below. 

1) Please describe the most joyful and/or the most painful artwork you ever created and why you qualified it as such. Please note that we are not using images.

2) Which character flaw do you despise the most and how you deal with these individuals during an unavoidable encounter?

3) Where do you find more turbulence when looking at your belief system?  And how much influence, if any, has your art had in the way you navigate through these rough waters?

4) Is the relationship between you (the artist) and your art a healthy one? Or artistic growth comes with a price, and if so, what is it?

5) I use metaphors like ‘ The Watchful Satan’ and  ‘ Scrolling Down Gods’ when expressing my views on artificial intelligence and social media.  Which metaphors would you use regarding the internet intrusion in human life? And what is your philosophical view on how most technology improvement seems to rather kick off chunks of people out of the board or invade their way of life changing it forever?

6)If given a choice of rather going back in history or forward into the future; which time, place or event would you aim to witness, participate or die in? And why? Or if you choose instead to visit tomorrow, what would daily life look like? And who you imagine yourself being?

To submit your article, answers,  get an invitation to participate, or for more information on this series please email jo@edgeofhumanity.com .

OUR CONCEPT

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator

Every piece of art, crafts, or textiles, hanging on my walls or ceiling tells a tiny passage of my life.  Most of it was acquired during my travels.  Many of these treasures are damaged whether because they were broken on arrival, as the pieces were tightly stuffed into my backpack, or weathered by the unforgiving Florida tropical humidity.  But in the end, they are my precious processions and they are part of the stories I tell.  It feels good to have rugs hanging from the ceiling, masks on the walls, and drinking my morning coffee thinking of the mugs’ tale.  The point here is that art has a lot to offer each one of us; ART IS VERY PERSONAL!

The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY offers that personal experience as the individual has the opportunity to buy the art from the creator and by doing so a new event to remember is born. When you hang the work of art on your wall there is a story behind it; an artist you now know and follow.  And instead of the usual “I purchased this at “WWW(BIG BIG ART STORE).COM”  the connection enriches the emotional value of your art piece.

Expression

Written by Nataly Burgzorg

Colors expressing what lurks inside
Black, red and white
Maybe they’ll understand
Or maybe they won’t
Doesn’t matter though
I just want to convey
Swapping emotional containment
For material ones
Birthing what’s already alive
Grasping the ungraspable
Capturing in time
That which is temporary
Yet, has a long lasting effect
Draw my soul on the canvas
Another way that I can speak
Coded for kindred spirits
Those that understand that less is more
Those with the keen ability to read
Between the lines
To see
Beyond the obvious
To think
Beyond their thinking
To feel
Beyond the usual
Welcome to my world

Art in the Desert

Art in the Desert: Olancha Sculpture Garden

Photography & Text By Jeremiah Gilbert 

Highway 395 runs through the states of California, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington before terminating at the Canada-U.S. border. There are many peculiarities to be found along its 1,305 mile (2,100 km) distance, including the remnants of the AirFlite Café seen in the second season Twilight Zone episode “A Hundred Yards Over the Rim” (1961) and the Lemon House, a former roadside attraction that is now part of the Lemon House Inn located in Cartago, California, with a population of under 100.

Near both of these oddities lies another roadside attraction: the Olancha Sculpture Garden. This collection of over a dozen metal sculptures lies just off the side of the highway, though the dirt road entrance is easy to miss as there is no signage.  The sculptures are the creation of artist Jael Hoffmann. Born in Israel, she lived in Berlin before moving to the United States. She works with metal and often infuses references to internal conflict into her art.

Pieces in the sculpture garden range in size from only a few feet to over 15 feet (4.5 meters) in height, all standing beneath the skyline of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. One particularly colorful piece, “Give and Take,” encourages visitors to leave an item in one container and take something from the adjacent container in return. Another sculpture, “The Hitchhiker,” features a female figure with her thumb extended while holding a suitcase in her other hand, perhaps expressing all of the baggage one carries through life. There is also a sense of personal freedom and female empowerment associated with this piece.

The Artist

Written by  Andrew Abballe @  A Life of Virtue 

The artist retreats into himself

He closes his eyes and surrenders to his imagination

His mind opens a gate to vast inner landscapes

Time collapses, the heavens slowly unfold

The artist loathes mundane ‘everydayness’

He raises his brow at the gossip, trends and fashion of the masses

They are those who walk blindly, who worship false idols;

Who revere fancy things, shiny things, the kind in which envy brings

For the artist, his path is clear

He follows his call towards Truth and Beauty

His pen is the hammer which frees us from the chains of conformity

His art shakes us out of the prison of ‘routine’

His words pull us towards the divine, the sacred

The artist is our liberator

He lights a flame deep within our souls, and

awakens us from our dogmatic slumber

This paves the way towards authenticity and self-actualization

The moment is fleeting yet urgent

We receive our gift

A new way of living,

A new way of being in the world

We scrape away the superficial rot amassed in our souls, and

seize the possibility of true freedom

For in order to find ourselves,

We must first lose ourselves

Photo Curator | Your Second Pair Of Eyes

Marta de los Pájaros
On View

Written By Joelcy Kay, Photo Curator

Although photography alone can tell a good part of the story, there are other factors that artists often overlook.

During their search for the best light or the truth, photographers sweat in the heat and shrivel in the cold.  They smell the stench and enjoy the aroma of flowers. They are welcomed and frowned upon. The experiences of being there and the desire to tell the story carried on by pride for their labor of love and expectations that when finalized, the work will be fair to the subject and make a difference, can be overwhelming.

Lola Dupré
On View

A fresh eye is necessary to organize the delivery of that material, in a fashion that is easy to follow, and yet has impact, by holding the spectators’ attention to the message one wishes to convey. This is when a curator comes into place. Unattached, the curator selects images aiming to promote engagement and consequently readers’ awareness.

ART SUBJECT | The Intrinsic Place Of Photographs In Our Lives

 

Mary Johnson
ON VIEW

Written By Joelcy Kay, Curator

The expectations and curiosity of waiting for a roll of film to develop rather days or hours depending on how old you are was mostly eliminated by the digital era.  But the feeling and desire of looking at these photographs bearing the weight of the stories it tells have not.

Ale Rambar
ON VIEW

Natural disasters’ documentaries are gut wrenching to watch as most of us cannot imagine enduring such a loss.  These touching historical images are full of personal tiny rescues on the faces of people finding precious belongs left behind by complete destruction. These treasures very often are photographs; they tell stories of their past lives, depicting people they love, and loved ones that are gone, with tremendous emotional charge.

Stelios Mousarris
ON VIEW

Humans have a way to keep somethings primal, and photographs are one of these relics, as we today take more images than we can count, and our brains or hearts still keep the flame of excitement burning to see the next shot.

Photography Article

Street Photography

Photography & Text By Streetmax21



 
Cheapside
As a street photographer, I take an observational view of how our present circumstances govern our behavior individually and in crowds.  Progressively, we appear to interact with each other only on a synthetic basis.  We attempt to mass connect with the aid of modern technology, but in so doing pay less attention to individual connection. I think this is compounded by the increasingly designed environment we inhabit.  The codes we see, hear and read within it impact upon our behavioral processes and ultimately isolate us.
Old Bailey
In developing scenes, I try to choose architectural backgrounds against which I can display separated figures, distributing or choreographing them across the frame. The architecture becomes incidental to a scene or situation that may or may not evolve within it. I tend to look for sites or places where people pass through without congregating.
Moor
To begin with, if there is one figure or two or more figures who are positioned apart, I’ll wait until they’re joined by others in the hope that they’ll create a spatial and enigmatic dialogue. The figures often take on the look of stressed automatons acting out prescribed scenes.  At a time when it’s becoming harder to discern what is human and what isn’t, their isolation from each other serves to emphasize an unreal and machine-like formality.  These isolated figures don’t have to be interesting in themselves, so long as they create a narrative tension with others.
Wembley Park
It’s important that there is an element of movement from the figures.  Everything must appear to be changing and in flux at the same time as retaining a spatial integrity. In an age wracked with anxiety and uncertainty, there is still a challenge to inject a boisterous creativity into a streetscape of robotic conformity.

Beauty | The Messenger

Alessandra Tarnowski Mastrogiovanni
ON VIEW

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator

In the center of the Sistine Chapel I cried.

At the Giza Plateau in the saddle of an Arabian horse I froze.

Art and history, envisioned and painted by Michelangelo 500 years ago and built by ancient men from millennia before Christ, come crashing into my heart and soul, invading my quiet space.  Loaded with beauty, making my heart race, my palms sweat, and changing me forever.

Buba Arabuli ON VIEW

The appearance of beauty is unique to humans while that rush that floods our gut, when we see beauty is universal.

I have a soft spot for the old and rustic.  From old homes, to the craftsmanship of ancient vases, to the smell and feel of an old book, they all speak beauty to me.

The places where we see beauty varies with the individual.

The beauty of an old farm’s kitchen is in the ability to blend the past with the present as it welcomes one to stay, feel, smell and taste life trapped within its walls; which can be enjoyable or overwhelming, but indisputably loaded with history.  But there’s also beauty on that slick looking kitchen on the front page of ‘Here’s Your New Kitchen’ magazine.

Edgar Invoker
ON VIEW

With modern life come changes in the concept of what’s beautiful, and what beauty is carrying.

Looking at antique furniture I question the lack of comfort, art, beauty and technology.  These handmade relics of past generations are for many intoxicating with beauty.  The beauty of the past and the beauty found on things that are no longer built.  The beauty of simplicity, that hundreds of years later still engage the viewer.

Technology made these daily objects of art more useful while the expectation of beauty as a carrier of one’s personality, tradition and history eroded.

Mikheil Arbolishvili
ON VIEW

But did beauty as we knew vanished or evolved into modern and more efficient artistic tools that still promote us to live with art and beautiful things?

Tech people use words like ‘beautiful code’, while chefs’ brag about their ‘beautiful ingredients’, beauty is unique and universal.

Beauty is also primal, as we very often navigate back to our roots, not ethnically but as race, the human race in search of beauty.

We all know what a sunset and a sunrise looks like, all the components and colors of this visual beauty are etched onto our minds; and yet when the opportunity arises we will over and over stand to attention and watch it roll.

Ava Sol – ON VIEW

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator

“These forces I feel that make the world around me seem unimportant. This need I have to communicate while no one cares to listen. I would certainly choose to go without proper nourishment and shelter in order to continue carrying on with my art.”

“This aching sensation in my mind; issues I must express, ideas I must let out. The concealed rage deep inside my surroundings that no one dares to talk about, I must release all through my art, my untouchable messenger”

Artists have always been targeted during wars/revolutions around the world and throughout history.  From the symbolism of an object an artist can strategically insert into their artwork, to the metaphors in lyrics or poetry, or to the ingredients selected for a gastronomic feast, they all can carry a message.  That’s the power of art; that is what the establishment fears.

Conceiving art is also a personal experience, as artists very often use their own suffering, memories and hopes in order to produce their pieces and express themselves.

But what happens when the very essence of art, the labor of art, is invaded by technology?

The layers of creation, the mental and physical exhaustion of building a piece of self that will later belong to someone else, that is being eroded by innovations that makes producing these limbs easier and viewership wider.

Production and artist’s expression has been in a tussle since the beginning as the patrons want to make money while the artist’s goal is to create.

It must be a difficult choice, especially for the traditional artists.  These individuals, with a mission of maintaining the ancient ways are confronted with the choice of large cultural exposure at the cost of lesser traditional ways during production.  Higher exposure will undoubtedly raise the demand; stimulating awareness to the cultural heritage he or she is aiming to preserve.  Is the easing technology bringing to (producing and promoting) artworks worth the water down version of the final vehicle carrying the message one wants to reveal?

The  NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY is an

 Edge of Humanity Magazine project.

OUR CONCEPT

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator

Every piece of art, crafts, or textiles, hanging on my walls or ceiling tells a tiny passage of my life.  Most of it was acquired during my travels.  Many of these treasures are damaged whether because they were broken on arrival, as the pieces were tightly stuffed into my backpack, or weathered by the unforgiving Florida tropical humidity.  But in the end, they are my precious processions and they are part of the stories I tell.  It feels good to have rugs hanging from the ceiling, masks on the walls, and drinking my morning coffee thinking of the mugs’ tale.  The point here is that art has a lot to offer each one of us; ART IS VERY PERSONAL!

The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY offers that personal experience as the individual has the opportunity to buy the art from the creator and by doing so a new event to remember is born. When you hang the work of art on your wall there is a story behind it; an artist you now know and follow.  And instead of the usual “I purchased this at “WWW(BIG BIG ART STORE).COM”  the connection enriches the emotional value of your art piece.

WHY DISPLAY YOUR ART AT THE NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY?

The gallery is designed to connect the art seekers and collectors with artists directly. We offer artists a COMMISSION FREE / CONTRACT FREE online platform to sell their creations and engage with their clients using portfolio pages that are engaging with large images and a dramatic black background.

NO MIDDLEMAN is a boutique ART GALLERY; individuals browsing our archives and portfolio pages are relaxed, not pressured to sign up, agree with website terms, or maneuvering out of pop-up windows.
