Max BaarsBiography: On the border between photography and graphic art. To describe what I do I'll have to explain that there are two different paths that I follow. After taking a photograph I try to isolate what is, for me, the essence of that image. That essence can be anything. A facial expression or the beauty that can be seen in everydays objects, to name a few. To isolate that essence I use various techniques in the digital domain. It's the point where my photography transforms into digital art. In this situation, the photograph is merely the raw material, the starting point to work from. Somewhat like a sketch to base a painting on. Finally, the images are printed on a photoprinter. Though there are many media to choose from, I prefer to present my work printed. To visualise a state of mind, emotion or feeling, I start with searching photographic material that lends itself to be manipulated towards the image I'm trying to create. From there on, in a technical sense, things are more or less the same. The most important difference is that in the first situation, the digital work is the next step in finishing the photograph. While in the second situation, the photographic material is merely the 'paint' to work with. Style No doubt that I'm influenced by expressionism, fauvism and abstract-expressionism. Yet part of my work seems to tend towards some sort of contemporary symbolism. While when searching for the essence of an image, that images seems to become abstracted. Well at least my painting style fits a box: abstract-expressionism. Education Attended drawing and painting classes at Mariënburg Art Center in Arnhem for two years. Beyond that: auto-didact. Reading, trying, learning. Country: The Netherlands Birthyear: 1967 Media: drawing Style: surrealistic Subjects: people, portraits and characters
Hendrik Arie BaartmanBiography: Statement of Hendrik Arie Baartman 2003 living in the Netherlands. As an artist of constructive geometric forms, my work deals with patterns and relationships derived from classical ideals of balance and symmetry. Mathematical yet organic, these abstract forms invite the viewer to partake of the geometric aesthetic. I use a variety of media, computer art, paper, and wood, plastic, metal. Classical forms are pushed in new directions, so viewers can take pleasure in their Platonic beauty yet recognize how they are updated for our complex high-tech times. I share with many artists the idea that a pure form is a worthy object, and select for each piece the materials that best carry that form. In one series of pieces, familiar objects are arranged in engaging configurations, displaying an essential tension between mundane individual components and the strikingly original totality. Because my works invite contemplation, slowly revealing their content, some viewers see them as meditation objects. A lively dancing energy moves within each piece and flows out to the viewer. The integral wholeness of each self-contained picture presents a crystalline purity, a conundrum of complexity, and a stark simplicity. The term experimental is used in art to indicate working with new forms. In science experiment is used to test theory, but what then is my theory? It is that art is close to science. You could simplify it by saying: physics is about physical forces, art is about mental forces. More generally there is something deeper going on in science and art. Einstein observed that a theory needs to be expressed elegantly. A beautiful equation is more powerful because it can be worked with more effectively. Its elegance gives it utility: Form follows Function was a founding principle of modernism and although we live in a post modern age, the lessons taught by modernists are still relevant, particularly when considered in the abstract. This is not about style or functionality, at issue is the underlying common nature of science and art. The observation that art and science share a common purpose is not new, Leonardo DaVinci would have said much the same and even at the dawn of history Pythagoras declared that numbers were the underlying structure of everything. However this is not a matter of repackaging classical concepts in a contemporary context. Our understanding of the scientific method has undergone a paradigm shift within the last generation.

Meagan Winterlude BabcockBiography: I was born in a small factory town on the river where the local art museum was hopping with very serious art. I thrilled my family with lots of winnings for realistic art and could make things photographic by the time I was 12. At that point, I stood back from the baskets of fruit and bass fish and realized that reality really stinks. It's creepy, in fact. So, I started the wild stuff. So, now I burn my art and call myself the Fire Artist. What is more fun than art that has been burned? Enjoy.
