Biography & Artist Statement


Contemporary Art Curator Magazine is delighted to award you with the Power of Creativity I Art Prize
This is the highest mark of Creative Excellence and recognition of outstanding achievement in innovation and creativity.
Power of Creativity I Art Prize celebrates the most creative artists and ideas, which have the power to change the world! Art can make the world felt, and this feeling may spur thinking engagement and even action. Most of us know the feeling of being moved by a work of art. When we are touched, we move. Art helps people get to know and understand something with their minds and feel it emotionally and physically. Art can help people overcome the numbing effect of today’s information overload by motivating them to put their thoughts into action. Art plays a vital role in creating social change; art tells a story that can alter and positively influence people’s futures and opinions.
Contemporary Art Curator Magazine is proud to present you the Collector’s Vision International Art Award, recognising and encouraging your outstanding achievements and potential. Contemporary Art Curator Magazine presents the Collector’s Vision International Art award to you for achieving a body of work of major cultural significance. It is a highly anticipated Award presented to the most outstanding and talented artists working in the art world now.

Painter & Lecturer

Biography:

I am a fine art painter and video artist with 30 years of experience.   My current research project is based on creating visual responses to my observations of people, who are suspended in the vacuum of hypnotic repetition.  I have travelled the world interviewing and recording individuals, who genuinely struggle with their existence in the context of their survival.  I have gathered substantial primary sources and evidence from destinations across the globe. Perhaps, the most significant research findings were from Haiti and Myanmar and resulted in the production of the most spectacular paintings.  They have inspired me to develop new and innovative ways of working and experimenting with image making, which are appropriate to the subject.  They combine the best of traditional achievements and the power of contemporary thinking and deep reflection.

I work full time as a programme coordinator for Art & Design at a large institution offering a broad range of Further and Higher Education qualifications.  I am also an external examiner for the University of The Arts, London and Academic Qualifications Alliance.

I have been awarded the International Vision Collector’s Award and the Power of Creativity Art Prize by the Contemporary Art Curator Magazine.

Artist Statement:

Through my projects I feel that I discover my inner fears, longings and re-evaluate my uncertainties. My work seems to be an attempt to explore and question by metaphorical presentation my response to the hidden truths of the world. The essence of the value of these works is in their inherent meaning and an atmosphere, which manifests itself in the dusk of the space portrayed, thus the light may appear, where the hue of colour fulfils clarity and sounds with harmonious melody.

Beautiful Colombian Girl Waiting for Love

This is a portrait of a sensitive and fragile Colombian girl living a long way from home. She is determined and focused, planning for her future, but wishing to be loved in an environment that is harsh and unfeeling. Her ephemeral youth and perfection will vanish with transience of life. Will her dreams and desires be fulfilled in the passing of time?

I have supported my painting with two video experimentations, which bring the character to life.

In the History – Exhibition at The Artist Lounge

Dear Artist,

It’s our pleasure to announce that our “In the History” Group Exhibition is coming up – and we are sure it will look phenomenal!

If you are receiving this email, it’s because your artwork has been received at the gallery and has been successfully installed in the exhibition.

The exhibition will run from the Saturday (31/07/21) to the following Saturday (07/08/21), and is being held at King House Gallery (7 The Minories, off Henley Street, CV376NF). If you are driving, the closest car park is the “Windsor Street Shoppers Car Park”, 21 Windsor St, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 6NL. Access to the gallery is through The Minores entrance, right in front of the Shakespeare Birthplace on Henley Street.

The opening event will happen on Saturday (31/07), with live music (violinist) from 11.30 am to 2.30pm, and a professional photographer from 11am to 4pm. We have a gorgeous backdrop on the exhibition floor, and would love to take several photos of you with your friends/family there – as well as ones of you with your painting, of course! 

If you have any COVID symptoms, please do not attend the event and self-isolate as recommended by current guidelines.  

The forecast for Saturday is warm but rainy (but then again, it’s England, we only going to know for sure on the day). But fingers crossed we get to get an alright weather, as it makes a significant difference for events’ footfall on weekends. The Ads are out to get us as many visitants as possible, and we can’t wait to see how it goes.

Between the 2nd to 6th of August, it’s required booking to visit the gallery. Private viewings during the week are still free and can be booked on this link: https://www.theartistlounge.org/inthehistory-exhibition

The final day is on Saturday, the 7th of August. For the Saturday, bookings are not required. Everyone is welcome to visit from 10am to 5pm.

Heavenly Ariel – Further Progress

Ariel’s fantastic ballet career is over. She is no longer able to reach the gates of heaven during her never-ending pirouettes and glamorous jumps. Her body is now deformed and she feels constant pain. Her twisted joints are permanently inflamed and swollen. Her potential to perform and inspire is forever gone. Underneath her fake pose and put on facade, she is very down to Earth. She has never enjoyed dancing. It was her parents dream, which destroyed her future, health and beautiful body… Once upon a time, her mother had one distinct ambition in life – she wanted to become a famous ballet dancer.
