Felice Willat shows adept technical skills in an array of photo-media and printing techniques, including work in the exhibition printed on aluminum and canvas, as well as photos shot with the iPhone, what she and other photographers are beginning to call iPhonography or iPhotography. Several of the featured images were taken during Willat's recent trip to Ireland, where she captured the beauty of the island's nature and historic culture.
Working in both ceramics and glass, Farideh Azad has decades of experience as a multi-medium artist. While she approaches each medium differently, Azad draws her inspiration from the same source. Of her work she says, “In glass, my emphasis and strength is color, which I try to use in different combinations that I see and am inspired by in nature. In ceramics, I concentrate on surface decoration: carving designs and textures--scraffito, inlay, appliqué, etc. Most of my designs are inspired by my rich heritage of 2500 years of Iranian arts & design.”
Karrie Ross' multimedia painting/drawing artwork brings science and art together in concept and form through her use of texture, line, drips, dots, drops and mixing medias, which exposes the energy vibration that she believes exists in our world. For the exhibition, Ross was inspired by the MillionTreesLA project and created a book, titled "MY Trees Talking," of 100 pen and ink drawings, each with a haiku, which will be on display.
