Featured Artist: Tracy Sexton

About the Artist:
Educated in the Crawford College of Art and Design Tracy achieved an Honours Degree in Fine Art painting, Higher Diploma and Masters in Art and Design Education, and was awarded ‘The Marshall Hudson Award’ for excellence in education in 2008. Tracy currently teachers in Youthreach Knocknaheeny, Foroige Corcaí and the College of Commerce in Cork city. Tracy has exhibited throughout Ireland and her work encompasses painting, installation and mixed media work.

Tracy is interested in the interplay between dream and reality – the traverse of imagination and reception, the unconscious and the conscious, the internal and external reality. Her work questions the surety of perception, both through its combination of appropriation and painterly technique as well as its playing with notions of memory and observation. Her pictorial narratives investigate the barriers between illusion and reality and the vulnerability that lingers therein.

I see beauty

From the river

I see the scars of the mountain

Testimony of a long

And hard life.

 

From the mountain

I see the long and curved body of the river

Indicating perseverance

Even in difficult terrains.

 

I see scars

I see a long and curve body

I see beauty

In nature.

Roses

I like them so much 

All roses are beautiful

Even with sharp thorns.

Typewriter Artist

Typewriter Artist as seen on the Daily Megabyte

Paul Smith was born in the 1920s with cerebral palsy, a serious condition that affects the brain. It limited his ability to speak and move. Back then, people with the condition didn’t have much of a life expectancy, and as a result, he was illiterate. When he turned 16, he learned to speak, and at 32 he learned to walk. But there’s one thing very particular about this man. At the age of 11 he started to create paintings using 10 symbols of an old typewriter. You will be amazed at what you are about to see in this video.

The Artwork of Antonella Napolitano


Featured Artist: Antonella Napolitano

Notes From the Artist:
I’m a mother and a wife, i love life, colours, the sea, the sun, the rain and the wind.
I live in Cinisi, near Palermo, Sicily.
Painting is my passion, since I was a child i loved to draw faces of women and their bodies just in the way i do now.
I think that a face of a woman can tell us the about pain and happiness and convey every kind of feeling.

Notes from the Artist:
The Photograph, the Image, the Eye, bound within my Spirit, emotionally entwined, capturing a passing moment of awe, a moment of beauty, generally lost in memory and time, bound here in the mystery of a captured image.

The night image, wrapped in darkness, elusive, passing, difficult to lock into memory, now presented in my photographic art, embraced in 35 MM Film, slowly imaged into maturity.

As in life’s path, these images have experienced years of maturing to arrive at the Debutants Ball – a public presentation.

Through hours, days, and years of joyful creative work and study, training of Self, to the Discovery of One’s Style, One’s experience of the Divine, as expressed through the subject, caught in the Lens of Frozen Time.

But, it is my artistic eye that unites with my Spirit, my Vision and through the media of 35MM Film, brings this private moment of my creative experience, to the public vision, that you may find pleasure in my work.

In 2009 I was given 4 American Art Awards and 2 in 2011. I have not entered since 2011.
I have been a past member of the Tahoe Art League. I have shown in South Lake Tahoe at the Embassy Suites and ‘the Edgewood Golf Club’.
I have shown in Montana, Nevada, and California (San Francisco and San Jose)

my kind of art

My name is Maxi Pettek, I am an artist living and working in Austria, born in Munich/Germany where I studied painting and art history.
I am painting, drawing, creating life-size peculiar pupae, photographing: people-landscapes-things (moods)
in my creative phases I am very passionate, time and space disappear, it is a kind of meditative condition, when it`s done I`m always totally depleted, the best way to get relaxed then is to take a walk with my dog in the wood.
I get a lot of energy from my family, best husband ever, 2 gorgeous sons, dog and cat.
besides I love singing, dancing, gardening, haut cusine, designing chilling with friends and many more…..have fun with my kind of art

Neglected


Is there a part of your life that you have let become dilapidated and run down? Perhaps yourself, your home, your dreams, your spirituality, your passions, or maybe all of them? I would like to encourage you to select one area of your life that you have let fall to pieces and try to take it back up again. Don’t try to work on all of them, because it will be too hard and you’ll get overwhelmed. Don’t tell yourself that you don’t have enough time. Choose one section, and devote maybe 15-20 minutes to it a day. Each of us waste a good 15-20 minutes a day doing mindless things (facebook and youtube for me) and that time could be spent truly making you happy. Be kind to yourself, no bashing or being mean to you, just say I think I would like to have a little more of that, in my life. You may be a workaholic that needs to learn to play again but whatever facet of yourself you decide to work on, make it a routine so it won’t be a flash in the pan but a permeant fixture in your day. Don’t let the rest of your life go on being neglected!
