Two Sides to the Story

“History is a vast expanse of different perspectives, as the saying goes there are two sides to every story.” - the artist

History is a vast expanse of different perspectives, as the saying goes there are two sides to every story. It is important to recognize that more times than not, the people in power will have their history told or manipulate history to make themselves look better.

In my art work, I try to explore the moment, people, and objects that aren’t well known in the mainstream history. More specifically, I explore moments in African American history.

Growing up, my family made sure that I was well educated about the struggles, victories, and heroes in our history. Learning those stories help feed my love for history, and realize that the history that I know is not necessarily what my peers know. I learned about Emmett Till and the 16th Street bombing from my parents, but in school they were barely mentioned.

My art often incorporates text, preferably handwritten, so that the work can connect viewers to more in-depth information surrounding specific events.

About the artist:

Lillian Young is an African American painter and art educator.

“My art focuses on highlighting people, moments, and objects centered around the Black Experience that are left out of mainstream narrative. I want my art to be a starting point for people to have those uncomfortable conversations about issues that are considered taboo to discuss. As our country changes it is important for us to remember our history so that we can learn from our mistakes.” - the artist. Source: lillartlife.org

Breaking the Rules

“Over the span of her career, self-taught contemporary painter Rachael Edwards has developed a dark palleted method of connecting people…

by breaking the rules.” - from the artist

Evident by the vast spectrum of her personal influences Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Vermeer,  Banksy, and David Bowie, is the desire to constantly expand the inclusion of her audience by offering a visual experience full of juxtaposing styles crossing the unwritten borders of technique.

A widely varied body of work that began in acrylics and developed in homage to the power of renaissance masters eventually tossed aside the thought of limitations. Childlike paper monsters became a street art influenced representation of a forgotten people softly embedded in figurative paintings.

Spray paint became a respectful rebel belonging wherever you find it. Cardboard became a contemplative power coupling used to encourage the flow of understanding each other.

Winner of the Foundation Prize Fellowship Award in Painting from Peripheral Vision Arts (2016), Edwards's refusal to accept boundaries encourages the underlying concern of her work to transfer consistently thru every statement, series and concept... a concern for the treatment of life, and the importance of cherishing it.

The Charm of Flowers

“In my creations, I like to capture the vividness of colors and the charm of flowers and give it my personal rendition, while trying to keep the beauty of it intact.” - the artist

A self-taught artist, I make abstract, intuitive and impressionistic floral art, occasionally foraying into landscapes. Use of colors is very vivid in all my pieces. They are mostly acrylics on both canvas and paper, a few are mixed media (mostly acrylic and soft pastels) and watercolor too. I have also started with Digital Art form, and there are a couple of those pieces that you will find in my shop.

Art has been my passion from the time I was a little girl, however, I had to navigate through life’s very arduous challenges for over two decades. During this time of severity, when I had a formidable task of just surviving with dignity, my art was all forgotten. Though I always wanted to paint but I kept losing touch and more importantly I started losing my confidence and I felt my brushes would not be in my control, my colors would not look beautiful enough on canvas. But as fate and my undying desire for creating art would have had it, fast forward 2016, one fine day I just walked up to 'Michael's', and bought a bunch of art supplies and that day, it was after after 23 years that I picked up my paint brush once again and I haven't stopped even for a day ever since.

I am in awe of great artists like Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Gustav Klimt- whose use of gold in his art fascinates me. Among more contemporary artists, I truly admire the works of Karen Silve, Erin Gregory, Flora Bowley and I am also thoroughly inspired by them.

A Sort of Singularity

“To quote Jane McKeating, ‘Color drips off the needle every bit as richly as that from a brush’.” - the artist

Duality I, 2018, 18 h x 12 w, $330

I am a multidisciplinary artist, with a 50 year career,  who combines a mixed media practice with embroidery across digital and manual platforms. Everything in our culture tends toward hurry.  This work is about slowing down.

At the heart of the current process is digital embroidery, designing in the computer and stitching out on a computer-aided machine. This is not new. It has been used in the fashion industry and the promotions markets for many years. Digital machine embroidery is not a substitute for, nor a speedier version of, nor an imitator of handwork. It is a mindset and a media choice in and of itself.

A single stitch is made by stretching a thread between two holes. The line formed by it can be loose or tight. It can be thick or thin, depending on the diameter of the thread. It can be long or so short that it barely exists. But, it can never exist as more than a single defined geometric event, a sort of singularity. The combinations of these singularities create planes, lines, forms, and geometrical space.

For several years, starting with the support of a Jerome Foundation Project Grant for Textile Art in 2014, my intense media focus has been on digitizing for machine embroidery.  There is an assumption that the machine dictates the outcome, doing all the work for you.   The computer and the embroidery machines are the tools that allow me to produce my vision.  To quote Jane McKeating. "Color drips off the needle every bit as richly as that from a brush."

The process is highly technical, using several software packages that can only be described as a non‑intuitive cross between Photoshop and Illustrator. Creating digital embroidery is limited by the geometry and the capability of both the machine and the materials. Needle and thread have real dimension and stitches can only be straight, joined together to suggest curves and forms.

Digital embroidery lends itself to hard edge geometry as well as biomorphic form.  The combination of high tech with "women's work" provides a delicious contrast of hard/soft, nostalgic/current, objective/non-objective. It also lends itself to modular repetition and re-combinations. Themes can be played out quickly in the computer and then stitched and sampled oh so slowly on the machine; combined with and without mixed media in a wide-ranging exploration of forms in space.

In this chaotic time, digital textiles seem like a way to begin to bring order to the world. Order is, however, always unstable, a glimmer of a hope, cut off by random acts of chance or intent. It is no different in digital embroidery.  In the computer, all things seem orderly, put together, and logical... as though the human propensity for chaos did not exist.  In the production, chance operates: human error, flawed thread, broken needles, run out bobbins, high humidity, low humidity, fabric popping out of hoops and the panicked phone call from a friend.  Repair savvy, canny attention and a spirit of wabi sabi is essential.

Forms of Japan

“A life-changing sojourn in Japan and especially the ability of the Japanese people to “make space” in the mind and heart in the midst of crowds greatly influences my work.” - the artist

“My work expresses deep feelings about my inner world and relationships. A life-changing sojourn in Japan and especially the ability of the Japanese people to “make space” in the mind and heart in the midst of crowds greatly influences my work.

Through a contemporary abstract expressionist style, my work explores the experience of alternating constriction and expansion.”

Layering with many tools and varied materials, painting becomes an action-oriented process. Moving between great and small, dark and light, adding and then subtracting - resulting in abstract imagery and their underlying structure. At the end is hope and space to breathe.

To Be

“To read and to write are like drinking water. And i am always thirsty... “ - Irma Kiss

TO BE

a poem by Irma Kiss

 

“Retroactive Love Icon” Artist: ME Wilcox. Mixed media sculpture.

“Retroactive Love Icon” Artist: ME Wilcox. Mixed media sculpture.

You are in the ink
and in the flicking of the pages.
You are in the taste of squeezed oranges
and in the darkness of chocolate.
You are in the dusted pink color of the clothes I'm wearing
and in the pattern of lace and silk.
You are on the radio station frequencies, putting on music.
And in the clicking of the camera
Taking shots.
You are in the space in the ribcage, on the left.
And in the blinking of the eyelids
rhythmically watering my eyes.
You are.

I am in the paper that absorbs your writing
and on the fingertip flicking the pages.
I am the glass holding the orange juice
and in the sweet kiss aftertaste of chocolate.
I am the memory of the hands removing clothes
and in the sweat glueing two heated bodies.
I am the song played on every radio station, everywhere .
And on the background of every photo you'll ever take.
I am in the space in your ribcage,
on the left.
And in the space between the seconds-
Where your mind lingers.
I am.

I am.
You are.

About the artist, ME Wilcox:

I earned a B.A. and a B.F.A. in Studio Art and Art History from UT Austin.  I’m also a professional certified Art Teacher, having taught art in Texas public schools and in various international schools in SE Asia.  I’ve always been very interested in world art & craft, folk art and art history.  I spent many years living and traveling abroad - collecting and studying various artistic traditions and immersing myself in different cultures.  My experience overseas both directly and indirectly influences my current art practice, which includes photography, fiber arts, print-making and mixed media. I’m especially interested in the concept of identity - an interest which developed as a result of living abroad for numerous years.  I explore issues of memory, identity, culture & tradition, which may include references to historical art iconography, global art traditions, and places that hold meaning for me.  Images, textiles and objects that I’ve collected may also appear in my work. I love the whole process of art-making!  It’s my intent to make interesting, meaningful and visually appealing art work.  I hope viewers enjoy my work.

Pathways and Woodland Trails

My art is an integral part in the evolution of my life’s journey.  The pathways and woodland trails I explored on paper, began in a place of familiarity.  But with every step and turning of the bend, a new perspective emerges.

Fall Flowered Path, 2018, color pencil, ink, water color, 14 x 17 inches, original $1200, giclee print $140

I integrated into my work the contrast of light against the darkness, metaphor so to speak of the struggle within.  I engaged this tug of war between these two elements.  This tension unleashed my work from the two dimensional.  I delved into my intricate details and wove them into my work.  I got lost in my art and found my soul.

In my senior year in high school of 1976, I entered an art competition where I walked away with a “Best of Show”, three Golden Keys and an art scholarship to Northern Arizona University.  Before obtaining my bachelor’s degree in the fine arts, I started a family.

During the 80’s, I continued to hone my skills as a free lance artist.  I accepted commissions for portraits, business signs, posters, murals for local businesses, designed wedding invitations and perfected my calligraphy.  I also partnered with a printing company, providing them with clip art and black pen and ink illustrations.  During the 90’s I designed a business logo for a local company in Flagstaff, Arizona.

In 1991, I went back to Northern Arizona University but this time to obtain a bachelor’s in science in nursing. I graduated with honors and obtained my nursing license.  I worked as a RN mostly in long term care and geriatrics until 2018.  The long hours and emotional investment into my nursing career relegated my art ambitions into the back seat.  Hence my “Grandma Moses” reference.  I had an epiphany of the need to return to my original life long passion.  My art is now back riding shot gun with me in the driver’s seat vowing to never look back.

The Junction of Abstraction and Surrealism

Binary Star, 2016-2017, Acrylic on canvas, 170 x 67 cm (diptych), $1200

I am an artist working at the junction of abstraction and surrealism. This is true not only with regard to my style of painting, but also relates to the topic of my research.


Lucid dreaming and diffusion materials. States of consciousness at the time of transition between sleep and reality. Paint conditions and various effects on it.

Dream No Location - Southern Limit, 2018, Acrylic on paper, 50 x 25 cm, $100

Dream No Location - Southern Limit, 2018, Acrylic on paper, 50 x 25 cm, $100

I am inclined to believe that any picture is a manifestation of a phenomenon seeking a way of broadcasting into the material world.


Thus the original idea takes several stages of transformation before to form a finished painting. It is like the movement of images, through the plots of dreams, to the surface to everyday consciousness.

Using academic education and techniques as a base, I am free to speak to such a technique as airbrush, mono-type, liquid acrylic, masking.

Seraf, 2012, Acrylic on canvas, 200 x 165 cm, $1500

In many ways, inclined to the synthesis of ideas and technologies, I deliberately introduce myself into the field of experiment.


Practicing techniques contributing to lucid dreaming, I fix my experience and understanding in the form of paintings. The main technique is to create an abstract form in the form of a blot or a paint print, followed by a "manifestation" of a specific image using a set of techniques.

Studio 212

This past Thursday evening, March 7th, Studio 212 Art Auction hosted a beautifully curated art VIP preview, located at the lovely Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty office in downtown Dallas.

For those who aren’t aware, [Studio 212 is a new event highlighting local artists. Over 40 pieces of renowned, mostly local, artwork will be displayed and available through silent auction. All proceeds benefit West Dallas Community School student scholarships.] - source: Dallas.CultureMap.com

The evening included wine, snacks and even champagne. And of course, the art was to die for.

Visual artist, Manuel Herrera had this to say about the evening. “Warm. It was so warm meeting all of the artists will to create art for this cause.” Of course the cause is to raise vital funds for West Dallas Community School.

Susan Overman, the Development Coordinator for WDCS states, “This event is art in its purest form. Pieces from so many talented local artists and importantly, the art of impacting children and changing the trajectory of their lives.

Every dollar raised goes towards scholarships for our students and the Dallas art community has certainly answered the call.”

The collection was a splendid variety of painting, photography and sculpture. Above, you’ll see Heart by plastic artist, Cheryl Tekstar Hodge, as well as The Onlookers by Gray Malin.

Below be stunned by Love Sweet Love, a diptych, by artist, Christi Meril. I was lucky to have Christi’s work installed right beside my hanging fiber sculpture, Instincts.

A Deep Exploration

“Why this voice? Because to me it sings out dynamic emotion; deep experimentation; and breaking free of artificial composition.”- the artist

Q: What led you to become an abstract artist?

A: A show came to the Denver Museum of Art entitled “Women of Abstract Expressionism.” I went to see that show twice while it was in Denver, for several hours each time – I drank in the work of these artists and began a deep exploration of abstract painting – especially abstract expressionism. Why this voice? Because to me it sings out dynamic emotion; deep experimentation; and breaking free of artificial composition.

Q: Where have you studied and how long have you been an artist?

A: I have a lifelong love of deep psychology, research and creativity. I succeeded in academic research at the University of Michigan and then in corporate business in Chicago.  My love of visual expression took me into independent film-making and I wrote screenplays, directed and produced short films that exhibited in juried film festivals in the US, Canada and Australia.

When I came to Santa Fe for a month in May of 2012 and came across Intuitive Painting with Julie Claire – I transitioned from film-making to art and began an intensive exploration of acrylic painting. I took courses in drawing principles and life form drawing. One year I worked my way through a tall stack of abstract art workbooks doing every exercise and practicing each technique offered – some focusing on composition, some on color theory, some on acrylic media and techniques. I also began in-person and online courses and workshops with established painters/teachers including Jill King, Nancy Reyner, Julie Catron, Krista Harris, Charlotte Foust, Anna Patricia Keller, Nancy Hillis and most recently, Lauren Mantecon

Q: Where do you derive your inspiration from?

A: I’m strongly influenced by PLACE.

In my 20’s, I had a life-changing sojourn in Japan. While there, I experienced the ability of the Japanese people to make space in their minds even in the midst of crowded, noisy surroundings. I’ve worked to cultivate that feeling in myself. Additionally, and more recently, my daily experience of the land, skies and weather patterns in the high desert of Santa Fe – being so expansive and ever-changing – inspire me to be bold and free.

Over the past two years and currently, I’ve been working on multiple pieces relating to my Japan experience, including “Rhythms.” This body of work was inspired by a manuscript from the early 20th century (later published in English in 1965) entitled “Forms in Japan.” The manuscript, compiled by Japanese scholars, identified and classified original Japanese forms that were human made or cultivated - such as tatami mats, present wrappings, house design, rice fields. They documented these forms in order to save them from being lost or diluted due to modernization and strong western influences. The category that grabbed me most was “forms of unity.” The language used to describe these functional forms of union included tangling, binding, knotting, collecting, and stacking among others. These terms described my own experience of human relationships – being (and wanting to be) connected and at the same time being (and not wanting to be) tangled, bound, or part of a stack. Just about every abstract painting of mine tells this story: Stay connected and squeeze through the tangles and knots to find space and room to breathe.

Rhythms, 2018, Acrylics, 24 x 36 inches., $1275

Q: We were very impressed with your Best in Show piece, titled Rhythms. Tell us more about this piece.

“Rhythms” is painted on paper that has the texture of canvas. It is mounted on cradled panel with painted sides. The finished piece measures 24” (tall) by 36” (wide).

I began this painting by squeezing a stream of liquid acrylic medium in a pattern of crisscrossing lines. After the medium dried clear and hard, I used a squeegee to drag Payne’s Gray liquid paint across the raised lines, providing a loose structure for the piece. The additional color palette was two secondary colors – transparent greens and purples/violets and their mixture, which were applied variously by brushing, scraping, dripping, splashing, blending and lifting. Some veiling was done using both transparent and opaque whites. Then gazing into the painting, I saw drum-like shapes in the lower area which I decided to bring out by outlining lightly in graphite – and thus the name – “Rhythms.” The cool colors and the purposeful leaving of white/light showing through provides an airy, calm feel.

Q: What do you hope for viewers to take away from your work?

A: I imagine viewers of my work to be engaged, curious, intelligent, seeking, passionate people and I hope that when they look into my painting, they feel a sense of space and renewal.

Q: How do you view your art career in five years?

A: In five years, I imagine myself to have found my most authentic voice and to be deeply exploring and expressing it. I envision having connected with my audience in the US and abroad via galleries, open studios, social media or other venues. I will be selling my work – which will enable me to continue my art journey and I’ll be as passionate about it then as I am now.

Knots

“My work seeks to reconcile blue collar and queer as an inter-sectional identity.” - the artist

Knots I, 2018, Soft Sculpture, 60 x 12 x 6 inches, $300

Knots I, 2018, Soft Sculpture, 60 x 12 x 6 inches, $300

I make things because I was raised to. I was raised by a single mother in rural Appalachia. Money was tight. We might’ve been white trash, but our trailer was technically a triple-wide and very nice. My mom taught me that if something broke you had to fix it yourself. Dogs get a new pen; marriages get a divorce.

The house was decorated with foraged flora and handmade signs that read “Live, Laugh, Love” or “Forget the dog. Beware of OWNER.” I learned at an early age that you can make anything out of anything.

Crafting was a way to use up what’s around you and make the house presentable while keeping your hands busy when you don’t know what to do. I use crafting as a way to engage with my lineage. It allows me to dissect various topics while maintaining a sense of place and character.

Knots II (Detail), 2018, Soft Sculpture, 52” x 20” x 9”, $300

My work is soft. I use traditionally feminine crafting techniques to manipulate phallic objects into grotesque forms that inspire tummy aches; I call them noodles. You want to hold them when you’re sad, but their twisted bodies suggest a hesitancy to be intimate. They’re a breakup song. They’re a man you just can’t quit. They’re every romantic notion that never came to fruition. They’re the intersection of want, need, and can’t.

I am a soft sculptor/fiber artist. The submitted works are part of an ongoing series called "Knots." Each knot consists of fabric that has been sewn into a tube, stuffed, knotted, and tied-off with an embroidery floss tassel.

A Unique Depth

“I chose to believe more.” - the artist

Eve, 2019, black ink, 40 × 40 inches

I moved from Mississippi to Texas at the age of 13. I had a very challenging and difficult childhood dealing with my Father's addiction to drugs. Through his life I learned a unique depth of humanity , vulnerability and humility that hopefully is expressed through my art.

I started creating art only 2 years ago due to my own personal heartache with relationships. I chose to believe more. Lean in to Love , hope and the beauty of what's yet to come. My journey to connect to others more through art has been amazing and fruitful.

Transcends The Literal

“…I want an image that somehow transcends the literal in the viewer’s imagination, suggesting a mood, a greater mystery, a timelessness.” - the artist

City Below, 2019, Archival Pigment, 12 x 12 inches, $250

City Below, 2019, Archival Pigment, 12 x 12 inches, $250

I like learning new things and discovering new locations, and there is plenty of both in photography. One of the most insistent places is an everyday junkyard, where the deteriorating cars offer opportunities for close up photography.

Talking Heads, 2018, Archival Pigment, 16 x 16 inches, $300

Talking Heads, 2018, Archival Pigment, 16 x 16 inches, $300

It starts when I spy an interesting patina on an rusting Model T. Or a Hudson. Or a Studebaker. On closer inspection, I find a pleasing arrangement of shape and color. I see a photo in the broken paint on a fender. Or a door. Or a rumble seat. So I set up my tripod and arrange a series of shots to later assemble in Photoshop. And then another car beckons.

The Kiss, 2018, Archival Pigment, 12 x 12 inches, $250

The Kiss, 2018, Archival Pigment, 12 x 12 inches, $250

In post production, I want an image that somehow transcends the literal in the viewer’s imagination, suggesting a mood, a greater mystery, a timelessness. One such image began at a car show. I saw a truck on which everything had been restored except the paint. I found a spot of luminescence on a fender and began the capture. Suddenly huge drops of rain began to fall. A minute or two later I had to give up because the surface was awash with water and all pattern was lost. In Photoshop the early rain drops magically turned into trees, and the scene became the image “Forest Bathing.” I don’t see a metal fender. I see a river, a pond, and a forest of healing trees.

Peggy Olafson Curtis was born in Seattle, USA and grew up in nearby regions during the turbulent 60’s.

Her love of photography began with a film camera and a high school course in photography—her first inspiration was a shot of her father removing a can of soup from a kitchen cupboard followed by his watery image looking back at her in the dark room developing tray.

Patterns, 2018, Archival Pigment, 11 x 14 inches, $250

The artistic inspiration came a few years later during a two-year residence in Japan.  There she became immersed in the Japanese aesthetic after visiting the Empress Meiji’s iris garden on a glorious rainy day in May. Before her stretched a row of shiny black umbrellas as visitors meandered along the garden path. The gardeners, in shiny black rain gear, snipped spent blossoms as they waded among the iris plants. She was hooked on beauty. She studied the Sogetsu school of flower arrangement, Japanese gardens, painting, pottery, in every moment she could. Later she completed a certificate in Photography from the University of Washington, studied at the Photographic Center Northwest, and continued her Japanese flower arranging classes.

Roni Murillo’s art is very personal and emotional, filled with color, energy, and movement. It often transforms from its original intent during the creative process. While recovering from an injury to her eye and with restricted vision, Roni considered how to turn this disability into a positive. She drew on the distorted images and fused coloration she perceived and used it to her advantage. Some of her most imaginative and innovative work emerged. She calls this body of work the "One Eye Series."

Roni continues to explore and experiment with various media, styles, textures, and new themes.

Rebirth, 2019. Ginger Cochran. Yarn fiber, cotton rope, beach wood, wire and found wooden ring, 38 x 14 inches

I want to go to a land that is bright

I want to go to a land that is safe

I want to go to a land that is free

 

I want to go to a home that is loving

I want to go to a home that is warm

I want to go to a home that is free

 

I want to go to a mountain that is bold

I want to go to a mountain that is brilliant

I want to go to a mountain that is free

 

I want to go to a valley that is awesome

I want to go to a valley that is fertile

I want to go to a valley that is free

 

I want to go far and wide

I want to go wild and proud

But I’ll go to my own heart….

The only place that is free.

Expression and Emotion

“I love painting non-objective abstract because it allows for a freedom of expression and emotion that other paintings may not.” - the artist

Blue Marsh, 2018, oil, 24 X 24 inches, $350

Blue Marsh, 2018, oil, 24 X 24 inches, $350

[Painting] becomes an emotional outlet that may produce something eye-catching and meaningful to others that I didn’t intend. It has allowed me to experiment with various mediums and their interactions with one another yet still producing a composition of color and texture that hopefully becomes an aesthetically successful piece of art that is enriching or thought provoking to the viewer.

Most of my paintings are with oil paints even if I use mixed media it’s finished with oil. I’m still enjoying the painting process and experimenting with various oil mediums and interactions with one another so “my style” is not yet developed. However, Abstract seems to be what I lean towards whether it’s non-objective, expressionism or representational.
