Martha Parrish Bush A&M AZ

While trained as a painter, I don’t hold to a single medium and have strutted around in sculpture and installation work that incorporated sound and invited physical interaction between viewer and work. My paintings also use many printmaking techniques and much layering, even off of the primary surface out into space using transparencies. I find the idea or concept will call for a certain voice that holds texture, weight and space and even loudness/volume; so my work swings from painting to sculpture with various stops in between.

Some of the themes I have worked with are: where is My voice / volume / what to say; becoming which grew out of becoming pregnant and having my son; personal traits that are physical / mental that are passed on genetically, manipulated, or even transformed with time. In the past decade I delved into yoga, breath work, meditation and prayer. This spiritual practice melded into my studio work and I sought ways to integrate what was coming of the practice; this launched a process of seeking a language or physical notation for breath.

I once was a zombie.

Maybe not technically, but pretty close. I was cognitively impaired, groaned a lot, had no short-term memory, and shuffled from room to room in a half-awake trance. I was still human, kinda, but an undiagnosed neuropathy (nerve damage) in my legs was robbing me of deep sleep, turning me into a  “zombiefied” version of myself. As my family searched for answers, I started painting again. 

That’s when the lasercats were born. 

I make them now for a few reasons. The first is a simple desire to infuse levity & humor into a complex and chaotic world. The second is distraction. The new creative process I discovered during this time allows me to be positively distracted from pain. I use large rolls of transparencies 10 feet at a time, flicking, stroking, spraying, scraping, dripping and pouring paint as I move around the large surface. With my art school & interactive design training, I incorporate traditional painting, as well as digital into the mix, layering them into my mixed-media art sandwich. It’s the hybrid marriage of mark-making skills, along with my personal art therapy, that interests me most about this process moving forward. The themes I am exploring in the work include levity in chaos, information overload, empowerment, the pros and cons of technology, and the augmentation of the organic.

In case you are wondering, we solved the zombie riddle. My neuropathy is under control and I am human again for the first time in years.  100%

From CultureType.com:

“AS A YOUNG GIRL, Jamea Richmond-Edwards got lost in the pages of Ebony magazine. She was particularly drawn to the runway images from the Ebony Fashion Fair show. Through the otherworldly photographs of stunning black models styled in wildly imaginative ensembles, she discovered haute couture and envisioned herself as a fashion designer. Years later, she chose visual art over fashion design, but never gave up on her desire to explore the artifice of dressing.

“Those images were very visually affirming for me. It presented black women in a space that I had never seen before,” Richmond-Edwards told me via email………”

Gloria Miotto

Originally from Brazil, rediscovering my passion for painting has been a journey back to my roots. As an artist, I overcome the challenging hardships in this world by maintaining a positive spirit. I enjoy understanding how human beings interact, integrate and exist as a part of the natural environment. These dynamic movements are transported into my paintings in the themes I choose, and in the combinations of colors I select, and using a unique technique I have developed, which give to the viewers the impact of my message. I like to be presented with challenges and use each experience to represent social themes in my surrounding and the world’s environment. My style is abstract expressionism. Art has always been a passion of mine and I continue to learn through my experiences and taking various classes at local colleges.

Fashion should always SPEAK SANS SPEECH!

Syreeta C | Fashion is an edgy, yet sophisticated brand that specializes in couturier services. It was created to tell the story of the modern woman – bringing a renewed tailored attention to the expression of each distinctive wearer. Syreeta C: An appreciation of engineering is visible in my knack for quality construction, tailoring, and keen eye. Self­ expression drives my custom design production. Take the metaphor: the wearer as the messenger and fashion as the medium, for we all have a story to be told. Fashion tells an individual’s unique story ­ where you’re from, where you’re going, your culture, your ideals… who you are. It has the ability to break barriers ­ language and otherwise ­and communicate more accurately than the most colorful of words. I love being the translator for my custom clientele.
