Mixed Media:
Rimes des Bleus Cachés by Nada H. Kyriakos
Artwork-ID: 175-10246
Nada H. Kyriakos
Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Quebec
Canada

I paint scenes, landscapes and places that are of inspiration to my spirit. The notion of place stays of interest in my art. Having lived different countries and cultures has shaped my artistic journey. The element of nature and identity in a mutual analogy remains omnipresent into my image. The idea of layers, which constitute the core composition of the painting, is transmitted through a figure of metaphor by earth strata referring to an inner self always in the making. Time acts as a vector in the course of memory in between oblivion and recall, a concrete process of hiding, erasing, recomposing or unveiling some elements of the image. Mixed media constitutes a major technique of my procedure, making an integral part of my qualitative artistic process. This is based on layers of paint, paper and other found materials where I actually play with collage. I use water-based paints, acrylics, inks; I also make batiks on paper.

Soleil Blanc by Helene Bertola
Artwork-ID: 174-9899
Helene Bertola
Beaconsfield, QC
Canada

Since early childhood, I have been fascinated by color, form and the creative arts. My mother was my source of inspiration as I observed her artistic capabilities and her love for the creative process. Having worked with acrylics for some time, I was later introduced to watercolor by Jacqueline Papineau Lespérance. I learned about the wonderful interaction of color and water with paper and also experienced the sheer joy of painting. Nature, with its seasonal changes in color and texture is my great provider of inspiration. Dès mon enfance j’ai été fascinée par les couleurs, les formes et les arts manuels en général. J’ai hérité de ces grands plaisirs de ma mère qui fut de cette génération qui apprenait à tout faire des ses mains. Après avoir expérimenté l’acrylique, j’ai découvert l’aquarelle qui est devenue une passion. Avec Jacqueline Papineau Lespérance j’ai appris la complicité de la couleur, de l’eau et du papier en plus du plaisir de peindre tout en y mettant du travail et de la persévérance. Je trouve mon inspiration surtout dans la nature, ses détails, ses changements de couleurs, de textures et de températures au gré des saisons.

A spot in British Columbia by Greg McLemore

I have been into Photography for over 40 years. I have enjoyed the changes from a 3 day turn around to get your photos developed to the instance action of todays digital cameras. I recall my first strong desire to have a digital slr, being a Canon 6 million mega pixel camera that sold for over $30,000, now you can get 3 times the size, with much better picture quality for under $1000.00. If only Ansel Adams could see the changes. I am truly blessed.

ABSTRACT 1 by Susan Bardos-Dobbek
Artwork-ID: 172-9644
Susan Bardos-Dobbek
Baie D'Urfe, Quebec
Canada

Susan was born in Hungary and immigrated to Canada at an early age. In the past 25years she has explored multi media compositions; clay, fiber art, and more recently began gravitating towards watercolor, which has become her medium of choice. Cheng-Kee Chee has been her source of inspiration. He wrote: “Artists should not be content with the specific subject matter in which they excel….artists should be sensitive to changes around them and, like scientists, be constantly exploring, experimenting, and discovering new ways of expression.” She is gradually transforming her work from the purist watercolorist, to incorporate the Asian water media traditions. The design elements are becoming increasingly important in her work. She challenges herself with expressive brushwork that incorporates paper collage and other oriental techniques. Japanese rice paper can be tinted with watercolors, torn into small pieces and used as collage with other materials. Some of these fragments of paper, because of the words and or images on them, are highly charged with social, philosophical, spiritual, historical, and personal energy. All these elements contribute to the power of the works.
