Acrylic

 

James Eli Bowden

Acrylic on PVC

My paintings represent themselves, rather than being representational. Forms are subconsciously assimilated from the world of things and sometimes an earlier painting. These sources are intuitively assimilated with concern to develop a visual space with tension between the shapes and the colors.

Christina Cooley

Acrylic, Mixed Media, Alcohol Ink, Crochet

For me, painting is an exploratory and intuitive process. I work in many layers of paint, adding, playing, and adjusting until the piece is complete. The result is a colorful, evocative abstraction.

Janice F Meister

Mixed Media, Printmaking

All of my artwork is inspired by a love of nature and organic forms which has long been the center of my art work. I focus beyond a visual description and allow myself to explore elements related to defining the subject. A passion for drawing, collage, printmaking and mixed media construction lies in the endless variety of techniques available to manipulate materials and express ideas. Varied subjects may be handled with traditional techniques and alternative approaches.

Amanda Lorance

Photography

As a fine art photographer, I prefer to have a diverse portfolio so that my images may appeal to a vast array of individuals. Photography is not simply a photo but a multi-faceted image of context. I focus on the use of colors, textures, and contrasting components to present the context of a photograph that will likely resonate with each viewer differently.
