#Art and #Artists : The Brilliant Works of Ula Einstein

I’ve been thinking about Ula Einstein’s art over the past several months, ever since she contacted me about her work. My overall impression is that her artworks are simultaneously detailed and minimal. It can become something of a conundrum thinking about this dichotomy. Yet that’s what stays with me–her lightweight airy paper works so complexly patterned. Even the color spots in the artist’s mixed media originals and prints contain an illusion that they are free-floating forms.

As she encompasses so much territory, Ula refers to herself as a “multi-disciplinary” artist “engaged with fragility and substance.”

Ula Einstein’s “mixed media” materials include paper, fire, hot glue, color pencils, and inks, as she employs the active techniques of burning, cutting, crumpling, tearing, piercing, erasing, taping, and stitching, among other actions. Ula sums up all this activity by simply stating — “making is part of the content.”

New Artists Added to ArtRegards: Contemporary Art On E-cards

Perhaps ArtRegards is adding artists to their site slowly. I submitted my art a couple weeks ago. Yesterday, ArtRegards, which is a site based in Switzerland, curated me in. I posted several images of my art for anyone using the site to send out on e-cards. Each time someone uses my art on an e-card, I receive a royalty payment. Several of my art images are now available to send on an e-card on ArtRegards.

I noticed a few artists I know on the ArtRegards site as well. It is a fairly new site, and they are accepting artist submissions. ArtRegards, and the site I posted about yesterday, Sandalista, are both simple types of art licensing for artists to do. If you think you might want to try submitting to larger manufacturers who print art on products, Artist Marketing Resources offers an extensive list of art licensing companies –you will find the list here.
