jungkatz

I’ve posted about Jung Katz before. I like them because they actively promote the artists they feature, and you’ll find drawing, paintings, photographic art, collage and other media on the Jung Katz blog. Recently, I encountered Jung Katz art tweets–follow them on Twitter here–that took me to their site.

From the Jung Katz art blog:

We’re looking for original artists, designers, and photographers to feature on our site.

Hildy Maze: Abstract Contemplative Drawing, Painting, Collage

“For me, abstract contemplative drawing is a way of navigating my mind and it remains the fundamental vehicle of my practice,” says Hildy Maze. Her latest work displays her physical process in clearly visible gestural line, brushstrokes, and oil stains. Her active process is even revealed in her title for the artwork folded & placed on top of each other (below) that describes the action involved in the manipulation and placement of the layered collage materials that form the piece.

Hildy’s contemplation appears in her painting titled, as the earth is poisoned so am I, a large 72 x 84 inch mixed media oil painting on canvas that came directly from the artist’s meditative practice. As Hildy stated, this painting is “based on the principles of heaven, earth and human. The first space is heaven, basic, complete space. Earth is in response to that and the human principle occupies this space. When relating to the earth principle as a response to vast space a sense of grief took over contemplating the ways humans have poisoned the earth.”

Although Hildy Maze was born in Brooklyn and educated at the Pratt Institute, she characterizes her “genuine education” as beginning with the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhist meditation, Shambhala art and culture, Dharma Art, brush stroke meditation practice, and Ikebana Japanese flower arranging.

After 12 years of living in New York City and working in her studio, Hildy relocated to East Hampton, New York to live near the bay and Atlantic Ocean, where she feels very connected to the sand beaches and sea gulls.

It’s been during the last several years that Hildy Maze’s work has involved simple paper. She says, “paper has an organic environmental quality. It responds immediately to causes and conditions, is impermanent, meaning it ages, becomes fragile, is affected by light, yet will remain as those things we search for and cherish, possibly in the attic or basement, an archaeological site, or a memory. It is the nature of all things to decay yet remain.”

These new works on paper display Hildy’s subject and process as pathway to intellectual and contemplative work and artistic production.

Hildy Maze has exhibited her work in galleries in New York City, in Europe, and in Beijing, China. Locally she has exhibited in Poughkeepsie and the eastern end of Long Island, including an invitational at Guild Hall. Her work is in several private collections in the U.S and Europe.

Studio Visit Site for Making Reservations to Visit Artist Studios

 

Jacks Pollock's studio floor in the Pollock Krasner house.

Jacks Pollock’s studio floor in the Pollock Krasner house.

We took a few days off during the Christmas holiday week and now we’re back to share the really great Studio Visit site that artists and collectors will want to know about. It’s an artist studio reservation service that is provided completely free to artists and collectors.

Studio Visit is a website for collectors to make reservations to visit artist studios searchable by city and country. So far, the main studio locations listed are cities in Germany, Spain, Mexico, Belgium and the Netherlands. Once you add your studio location your city will appear in the available locations.

Artists simply register with their studio address, name, and at least one picture of their studio. Artist/studios can add up to ten pictures of their studio space, up to ten images of their artwork, a Google map view, artist CV/Statement and other menu options.

The Studio Visit website provides a booking system. Through this system potential buyers and collectors will request a studio visit only on the days, times, and for the duration that the artist or studio configures. The booking system will ask for basic contact information from the collector that will be seen only by the artist/ studio they request to visit.

Once a collector books a studio visit reservation the studio will receive an email. In the studio account menu option RESERVATION MANAGE the reservation booking can be approved or rejected. If approved the collector will receive an email and can only go ahead with the studio visit appointment with this confirmation email.

News of this service is provided to you by the Artist Marketing Resources blog For the past six years, Artist Marketing Resources has been providing information to artists.

Big Ink Open Call Collaborative Large Woodcut Project and More

‘Portrait of Hagiwara Sakutarô’, woodblock print by Onchi Kôshirô, 1943, 1st edition, National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo

The Big Ink website and blog has a current call to artists to take part in a collaborative large woodcut project. Monumental prints inspire artists and the public alike to think big, set long-term goals, and have the perseverance to see complex projects to fruition.

Each year artists from all backgrounds including sculpture, photography, painting, and print participate. Artists are invited to submit a proposal to create a woodcut at least 24 x 36 inches in dimension via an open call for entry.  If accepted, artists are given two months to carve their image into a piece of plywood.  At the end of the two months, all the artists meet for a printing session at a local print studio and help one another print their woodcuts onto paper. Typically between 30 to 36 hand pulled prints are produced during two days of printing sessions. Each artist donates one print to the BIG INK portfolio.

Two Artist Resources that Defy Categorization: Works.io and Art360 Gallery

From first view, the Art365 Gallery website has the look of an online art magazine, IMO. Although they refer to themselves as both an online art gallery and an art blog. You’ll find Featured Artists, Galleries, Glass Artists, and Art News.

Visual artists and glass artists are invited to submit for a permanent spot on this site.

– Send  a text in 300-500 characters about you, your artworks and perhaps a few words about your art technique.

– A link to your website/Facebook page.

– 6-8 quality images of your art.

They will rewrite a unique text about you and your art, show the best of your artworks and link to your website and Facebook fan page from their art blog (it’s a 100% free service). You’ll find the full details on their website.

Works.io is a sophisticated artist driven platform with a professional portfolio and CV tool for emerging fine artists to create online visibility.

Works.io is something like an artist directory, yet, when artists sign up for free they have a dashboard allowing them to add images of their art, their exhibition news, and more. Works.io also offers a monthly selection of emerging artists with more extensive text about each artist showcased. Works.io selects sophisticated art in low-key tones for their feature.

These relatively new sites have been added to our 57 page e-list of art magazines, blogs, and artist directories.

Call for Submissions: The Multiple eXposure Project Zine 1.0

Attention writers, researchers, photographers, visual artists, and image-makers!

The Multiple eXposure Project is a multimedia, multi/trans/inter-disciplinary artistic practice and research-based initiative that explores the many layers of image-making, participatory photography, visual ethnography, and performative encounter(s) between the image and the spectator.

We are happy to announce that we will be publishing the very first issue of our collaborative zine and we are now accepting submissions until December 31, 2014.

The theme of our upcoming zine is “Self-as-Subject”, an exploration of the “self” and its manifold permutations – its presence, identity, representation, liminality, and (dis)embodiment – in this day and age of digital madness, hyperreality and mobility.

The zine is multimedia so we are accepting text and image-based submissions related to the theme in any format imaginable such as: articles, essays, reviews, short stories, poetry, interviews, photographs (film or analogue), visual narratives, videos, digital art, illustrations, cartoons, mixed media, collages, experimental pieces, etc. Collaborative projects are very much welcome. Multiple entries are also accepted. Digital and printed copies of the zine will be released.

Some notes to remember:

–   Please include your name, short profile, country of origin, and blog/website (if applicable) in your email.

–   Photo submissions in jpeg format must include a title and description.

–   When necessary, please follow the proper citations (MLA style) in article submissions.

Please email your submissions to themultipleexposureproject@gmail.com. For more information on The Multiple eXposure Project, check out our website: http://www.themultipleexposureproject.co.nr.

Artist Agent X

Vega Inspection, Agent X

Agent X is currently showing several of his works in an exhibition at the SoHo Gallery for Digital Art, New York City and is a featured artist at ArtLA. In 2011, he was a Semi-Finalist in the New York Art Marathon, and featured in several art publications and positively reviewed in Arte Fuse and The Grid. View more work below and on the artist’s www.agentxart.com, in his See.me portfolio , and in this PDF of Available works.

Smokin, Agent X

Influenced by artists such as Takashi Murakami, Romare Bearden, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Robert Rauschenberg, Agent X creates experimental, multimedia collages, paintings, and 2D artwork. His work is an amalgamation of diverse cultures, past, present and future, and his signature collage street intellectualism is a commentary on the urban experience. The phenomena of pop culture, technology, fashion, music, politics, and race are central to his practice of designing experimental works.

Bullseye Horizons, Agent X

Agent X’s work is influenced by pop culture from the 1920’s to the present. This inspiration led him to create multimedia works incorporating iconic imagery from genre magazines from the past eighty years. By adding paint and other nontraditional and found materials, Agent X creates unique surfaces that transcend any particular era.
