KK Paul - Photographer and Mixed Media Artist- Milliande Artist Spotlight

KK Paul - Photographer and Mixed Media Artist- Milliande Artist Spotlight





















































Kim aka KK DEPAUL Artist Statement I am a storyteller. My themes are memory and secrets. I have always been fascinated by multiple interpretations... double exposures...and ambiguity. My process begins with a collection of elements. As I begin to move the elements around, cut them apart and reassemble, a visual narrative begins to take shape... I see the layering of paper and photographic imagery as being similar to the way our mind organizes memory... at different depths... one over another...constantly shifting.

ZHOU FAN - Milliande Artist Spotlight

ZHOU FAN - Milliande Artist Spotlight














ZHOU FAN Artist Statement
A series of my paintings is based on dreams that I had as a child of many many
jellyfish floating in the sky, some of which fell to the ground on parachutes
and became mushrooms. These dreams had a strong impact on me, and
I remember them vividly. Somehow I feel that it is easier to focus on dreams
 than reality. In one particular painting, there is a boy crying because
he keeps things within him, is easily sad, and he refuses to face reality.


Zhou Fan was born in 1983 in Shanxi Province in northern China.
In 2006, Zhou Fan graduated from the art department of Shanxi University.
He participated in a solo exhibition and several group exhibition in his home province that year.

About Jane Rosen Work excerpt by Patricia Phillips:
Rosen's work is influenced by the forms perceived in those moments prior to complete recognition -- what is seen before pattern, color, and shape indicate some figure or formation -- which serves to engage viewers in negotiating the relationship between perception and cognition."
-- Patricia C. Phillips, Artforum
I came across the sketchbooks and drawings of Jane Rosen as was intriqued to discover what her final art medium is after viewing her preliminary process. Sculpture seems to be her main form of creative expression with mixed media artworks also accomplished. I love the fluidity and looseness in her sketchbook sketches.. take a peek at her website to discover more about this fascinating sculptor
