New Artist Interview :: Mara Baker

marabaker2

“In my Installations I purposefully choose to use fragile materials and form tenuous relationships between them. These relationships often have the outcome of perceived failure. The water can’t fight the twenty feet of gravity; the tubing system can’t sustain the pressure and leaks, or the sponges are unable to absorb enough moisture. Yet in this failure, I am forced to accept the ambiguity of an unknown outcome and revel in the complexity which foretells this assured failure.”

Tim Lowly

I’ve known Tim for a few years now. He is a gentle soul, only says what is necessary, and what he does speak says volumes. I believe the same goes for his work. He is an instructor and North Park University in Chicago and many of his paintings revolve around his daughter, Tema. I especially enjoy his large scale detailed paintings which evoke such a sense of beauty, calmness, and solitude.

You really should look at these in larger detail on his website: www.timlowly.com and his flickr site: www.flickr.com/photos/timlowly/.

Twelve Fingers

Today we have a guest blogger, Bill Tucker, writing about artist Twelve Fingers:

Twelve Fingers, aka Nathan Enkel, creates a world of monsters and people in everyday situations as well as visually descriptive worlds and bodies based on his current interests and feelings. The Toronto native is a student at OCAD and is continually developing this new world and works hard to share it. From pieces depicting heads vomiting clouds dashed with beautiful tones of water color, to paintings of monsters in full color spray painted glory. His characters are connected by a familiar bolt of lightening that floats above the monsters or humans heads.

Lisa Congdon

Lisa Congdon is a San Francisco based illustrator who didn’t begin making art until she was 33 years old. She is almost entirely self taught and sees this as an advantage, being able to work with her own sense of color, shape, and composition. I especially love the portraits of animals and people with random bursts of neon colors.

About Us

Fill in the Blank Gallery was formed out of the desire to create a space where art can be presented, discussed, created, performed, written, shared, and taught on an accessible level. Our goal is to foster creativity in our community, which is so full of talent but perhaps lacking in creative outlets. Part artist collective, part gallery, we feature a wide range of artistic works each month including fine art, craft, film, and music.
