“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” Vincent Van Gogh With great pride and an even greater sense of duty and responsibility we would like to present the first volume of the Hidden Treasure Art eMagazine / Spring 2015. Our mission is to connect and build a bridge between artists and art lovers by providing and presenting a high quality source of visual art and design through our book, website, magazine and other publications. We are dedicated to bringing happiness and recognition to the artists and joy, beauty and satisfaction to the art lovers let them be collectors, buyers, galleries, curators or others taking pleasure in art and design. This idea was embraced by 59 artists from 15 countries all over the world and this is why we believe that Hidden Treasure Art Magazine Yearbook has so much to offer both to the Artist and to the Readers. Georgia Szollosi Ellis director, editor and curator Why do people like art? “Human beings are visual. We react to symbols, colours and images in certain ways. Can you imagine a world without symbols? We all use symbols to live and work. Some we “read”, like the stop sign or the sign for the ladies or gents toilet - these are universal. Other symbols of images promote an emotional response - and art taps into this area. That’s why I love art.... that’s why people try to paint what makes them feel deeply.... in the hopes that their emotional response will make others feel then same way...” (Unknown) HIDDEN TREASURE ART eMAGAZINE / Spring 2015 I 3

Beach House standard writing pencil on paper 4,5 x 9 in 2014 While about his endeavors in the art community, his work was personally commended by Ivy League institutions such as Princeton University and Columbia University, and earned a membership in the American Artist Professional League. As a self-taught artist, it was vital that he surrounded himself with the proper resources in order to reach a professional level and harness his aptitude for detailed drawing. With inspirations like Frank Lloyd Wright and Salvidor Dali, he studied in his own time and painstakingly created his own technique which would allow him to achieve photorealism in his work. After about 8 years of intensive independent training he began exhibiting and was recognized for his proficiency despite never having been conventionally taught in any art school, a few of his pieces in particular being directly compared to Dali’s “Persistence of Memory”.

Voss has most recently been working in a more direct way as he further studies the causes and effects of narratives, as objects act as surrogates for an idea or story being told. By painting fragmented parts onto a solid background Voss further dialogs and reflects on fragments or rejected parts as being unified onto a permanent ground. 32 I HIDDEN TREASURE ART eMAGAZINE / Spring 2015

Lost.Found oil on canvas 30 x 30 in 2015 The fragmented parts, with anatomical, metaphysical, and psychological imagery, become interactive and communal thus creating a sense of cohesive and conflicting narratives, and recollections. The fragments can be viewed as parts that have escaped a tumultuous environment in order to risk another refuge, a diagrammatical conversation between the separate parts, a dialectical or a causal construction. In these works the painted tape, for Voss adds a sense of illusionistic permanence as well as a fragile impermanence in the work. These studies were most recently exhibited at Angelo State University’s Gallery 193 in San Angelo TX, during Voss’s “Fragments and Causality” exhibition.

Interesting Facts Part 1 During Renaissance and particularly in 1500s artistic painting was not considered a suitable occupation for a gentleman. Since painting involved working with hands, artists were considered craftsmen and were given the same social standing as tailors or shoemakers. The Renaissance masterpiece “The Pieta” is the only work that Michelangelo Buonarroti ever signed. He later regretted what he considered an outburst of pride and vowed to never sign another work again. The Pieta is housed at St. Peter Basilica in Vatican City. Michelangelo Buonarroti’s father Lodovico was horrified when he found out that Michelangelo decided to become an artist. Michelangelo was often beaten by his father and uncles when he first began to draw. Lodovico was proud of his ancestry and he worried that an artist in the family will bring the family a disgrace (Image on the left: Restorers spot lost self-portrait of Renaissance master Michelangelo in Vatican fresco). Leonardo Da Vinci started painting Mona Lisa in 1504 or 1505 and finished only shortly before he died in 1519. Some reports say that it took him 10 years. Pablo Picasso was considered a suspect in the theft of Mona Lisa in 1911. He was arrested and questioned after his friend Guillaume Apollinaire pointed a finger at Picasso. Both were later cleared and released. HIDDEN TREASURE ART eMAGAZINE / Spring 2015 I 35

Marcio Decker www.deckerfinearts.com contact: Marcio Decker marcio@deckerfinearts.com Brazil Decker’s abstract optical, mixed media pieces explore the effects of dimensional expansion on the canvas’ surfaces using acrylic paint in predominantly vibrant and contrasting hues, layered compositions and textures. The process involves optic and kinetic qualities to augment, enhance and displace color, texture and light in the works. The pieces then radiate, glow and move with the viewer. The process starts with freedom of expression and movement, flourishing imagination without restrictions and calculations. A place of contemplation and inspiration is established. Layers of paint and textures are overlapped generating dimensions, compared by the artist to his experiences, and the final coatings of pigment, glazes or metallic finishes are carefully applied utilizing fine decision making and technical skills, developed in the past 25 years, taking the paintings to a completion. This process can take many days, weeks, months or years. Lastly, a glass lens that ends the process and enhances, illuminates and bends form while concealing experiences and protecting the painting.

I went to Art College, but soon realized that the most important thing for me was to be able to develop my individual style, not focus on learning the specific things taught there. I work in oil or acrylic on canvas, and am inspired by the world around me. I create landscapes which sometimes verge on abstraction.

A way of painting that is truly dreamy, so poetically profound and intense to the point that it reaches a quite engaging result; a kind of painting which runs along the lines of imagination, defining natural scenarios with her extremely secure way of expressing herself. A colour spread without repentances, dense and soft but at the same time brilliant, through which the painter is able to produce unforeseen and unexpected shades, within which she completely conveys herself and her truly sensitive soul, as the refined and creative artist that she is.”- Simone Fappanni, Art critic.

Noreen Larinde is a feminist painter and fine art photographer, who is also an art historian with a specialty in East Asian culture. She finds inspiration in Japanese Zen drama, which considers Woman knowable only through the subjectivity of the arts. For the Zen Buddhist life is constant change, thus Woman is always becoming transforming herself into higher spiritual states. Dream oil on linen 36 x 48 in 2014 An image of a woman floats in the midst of greatly enlarged zucchini blossoms. In the upper left is another female image, an alter-ego. To convey this is her paintings, she utilizes an architectural element, a building experienced in her frequent travels. This reference to a specific location is equivalent to the stage of Noh (Zen) Drama on which the transformation take place. Often in the paintings there is a flower which expresses Woman as a part of nature, irresistibly beautiful in herself, and also fleeting while at the same time powerful in that she controls her own destiny.

The Thinning, Brittany acrylic on canvas 70 x 50 cm 2011 Some works of Nadia Viguier give birth to allowing access not at her most intimate secret but the most intimate secret. It is to what the artist unkowinglly will. There is (and despite the idea of maternity) something about the “Carmelite” because loneliness calls for violent communion. The Artist - by sudden abstraction of reality - looking for a form to the shape of everything she brings out even thought it may seem strange since nothing in her is of the order of the simple demonstration of evidence. Emerges a form of enjoyment of the order of a pagan spirituality. A huge tide or a geyser springs from the earth. This is due to the fire (for color) and the telluric. This is no longer satisfied the kingdom of shadows. The artist goes currents, sometimes stairs of unknown where they lead. How to overcome this wave or this ascent? Somehow the artist releases us from the ground. We slip into such images, we become accomplices “innocent” (or not). Remain traces, wastelands. The moon or the sun takes us away from the slumber. Light opens the literary sense inexpressible. A powerful blast through space. - Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret The Traveller Egypt pastels on paper 28 x 37 cm 2009 HIDDEN TREASURE ART eMAGAZINE / Spring 2015 I 69

Approaching Galleries It’s one thing being an established and famous artist, where all you have to do is paint the pictures and hand them over to an agent, then show up for the preview evening. It’s another to be at the beginning of your career as an artist. Most of us have to plan our own shows, as I have done over the last few years, and there is a lot of work involved if you want to get the most out of your art exhibition. I was fortunate in that I worked as a gallery assistant for artist Nerys Johnson when I was at Durham University, and assisted her with preparing for her shows. Even though she was an established artist, there was still a lot to be done. After you have planned an exhibition of your work, you will see that the commission galleries request is well worth the effort they put in! Restaurants might be a good place to start, it works for both the restaurant in terms of attracting customers, and the artist. It is also a good place to get over your ‘art exhibition anxiety’ in a far less intimidating atmosphere than a public gallery. They charge no commission, but you have to do the work yourself… from the hanging to the promotion and subsequent sales. So, it is from this perspective that I write. In the Beginning: Your First Art Exhibition First of all, you must secure your ‘gallery space’. I had my first solo art exhibition at Pizza Express in Darlington, UK. As a corporation, they have a huge commitment to the arts, in particular local artists. Their restaurants are often designed as galleries themselves, and they know that their customers really appreciate the ever-changing work on their walls. To be continued...

What makes an artwork great? After contemplating what it is about certain artworks and artists that remain relevant over time, There are three main considerations: Motivation: The purpose for creating; connection to the subject; the intentional concept, message, or emotion that the artist is passionate about capturing. Execution: Technical proficiency; ability and confidence in the various principles of art so that the concept, message, or emotion comes through skillfully and convincingly. Expression: A unique style; the heart and soul of the artist; where we see his/her hand and feel what he or she was feeling; that “it” factor of the work that takes you to the time and place of the artist who created it and lets you become lost in the moment conveyed. Image: Capt. Stjepco Mamic: Net / acrylic on linen canvas / 100 x 80 cm / 2013 In short, great art comes from great artists. Because, more than anything, the end product is a direct reflection of the mind, heart, soul, and life experience of the one creating it. When artists think and feel deeply, respect the responsibility that goes with their calling, and have a genuine connection to and interest in their subject matter, they are on their way to greatness. And if their motivation, execution, and expression are operating at high levels of skill and sincerity, great paintings can naturally occur.

Lasserre Mouvement d’espoir oil on painting 150 x 120 cm 2014 By painting, she found a way of expressing and sharing her perception of the world, her exaltations and her anxieties. Her art is a sort of testimony of the challenge of living together whilst trying to be unique. This is brightly evidenced in her various crowd scenes. She portrays crowds of individuals drowned in an alienating mass; yet through her palette of colors she is able to express the rich diversity of each individual, of each soul. However her work is not so much preoccupied by masses than by the fragility which leads us to abandon our individuality in an attempt to fit in. Oil and color create urban scenes in which our attention is first drawn to this recurrent crowd before we have come to a more nuanced view of the portraits. 86 I HIDDEN TREASURE ART eMAGAZINE / Spring 2015

Why Artists Should Be Paid for Their Artwork? “Artists shouldn’t be paid for their art. Getting paid prevents them from creating really good stuff.” - I read somewhere online. I want to make three points about Art, Contribution and Money with this article: Your art is a contribution to society. It brings joy, it solves problems, and it makes this world a better place. Being paid allows you to make that contribution to society. Your contribution expands in relation to the amount of time you put into it. More hours means expanded contribution to this world with your God-given talent. “Artists are better off working a job they hate and then painting in their spare time.” This is the problem I have with that: No one should work a job they hate. You were put on this earth with talents and you are meant to do that which you are good at and what you love! The world is missing out on your contribution. The less an artist creates, the less they grow. It requires hours upon hours to hone your craft. Charging for your artwork enables you to make a contribution to the world with your art. It allows you to develop your style and to get better and better at what you do. As long as we are stuck in a money based system, I find it an outright insult to all hardworking artists to say they shouldn’t be paid for what they do. It’s just a crazy notion that this one, single profession should work for free! (While everyone else gets paid.) 126 I HIDDEN TREASURE ART eMAGAZINE / Spring 2015

The composition of landscape in circle unfolds the mystery of the World: no beginning, no end; no quantifiable space, therefore, no time. It brings us back to fundamental existentialist questions, between finiteness and infinity. The circular landscapes are built after the classical plan of an architecture of the spirit, with a progressive densification of the sacred, of which the archetype in our culture would be Solomon’s Temple: outside–enclosure–sanctuary-Holy of holies.

This is precisely one way to read these images. Starting from the periphery, the observer can contemplate the unity of the World, which is a reflection of his own unity. Subsequently, he is brought to the center where it seems to be nothing left. Nature, space and time have disappeared. But the observer remains, facing himself: a consciousness beyond this World of shapes and definitions. HIDDEN TREASURE ART eMAGAZINE / Spring 2015 I 137

His works are based exclusively on computer processed digital photography. Printing is on various supports such as fine art paper, laminated wood, plastic, aluminum or canvas.

The happy marriage of photography and informatics, which gave birth to “Digital-Photography” and thus opened a new era of “Digital-Art”, allowed Bernard to get out of the initial frame of traditional photography to enjoy the freedom of digital art, an art representing well our “High-Tech” Epoch. He uses the virtual brushes of today’s digital tools to create a modern work of art.

Interesting Facts Part 2 Natural Ultramarine was as valuable as gold during Renaissance costing per ounce more than half the annual rent of a good size studio in Florence. It was considered one of the three purest colors beside gold and vermillion and a reflection of God’s glory. Because of its high cost it was reserved by artists for the most revered subjects such as robes of Madonna and Christ. Linseed oil, the most popular of all oils for painting, comes from the flax seed a common fiber crop. The linen, a popular oil painting support, is made from the flax plant. Pablo Picasso was baptized Pablo Diego José Fransisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Martyr Patricio Clito Ruiz y Picasso. The name contains 23 words and honors various saints and relatives. Vincent Van Gogh produced more than 2000 works during his life time: approx 900 paintings and 1100 drawings and sketches.
