    An Artist Speaks with Guest Artist Robin Botie

    in Art

    Join host Michael Harris with guest artist Robin Botie as they discuss her inspiration and technique for her unique Photo shop images. Robin Botie’s life as she knew was catapulted out the window when cancer killed her daughter. Desperate to keep visible memories of her, and needing to reinvent herself, she discovered photography and writing as ways to heal. Robin believes anything’s possible – even finding joy after loss.  She creates pictures and writes about growing in the midst of grief and ever since Robin dove into Photoshop, she’s been losing herself and finding herself in her work.  “My pictures are mostly of living things and landscapes. They are all about regaining life and redefining it. Photoshop offers intriguing “Tools” to work with for those whose lives are in turmoil or struck by loss. There is a Patch Tool and a Path Selection Tool, a Dodge Tool and an Add-Anchor Tool, a Magic Eraser, a Magic Wand, a Clone Stamp, … and a Healing Brush. The possibilities for change and control are endless.  I always believed I could design my way into or out of anything; for me, to design is to fix, to redefine, and make beautiful.”

    An Artist Speaks Season 4 Episode 27 with Guest Artist Greta Corens

    in Art

    Come listen to this entertaining and insightful interview as host Michael Harris speaks with Botanical Artist Greta Corens.   Greta Corens saw the light as a painter of portraits and flowers, after a career as a fashion designer in New York City. She received an MFA at the prestigious St. Lucas Architectural Institute, div. St Imelda in Brussels, Belgium. Greta became a sought after fashion designer in New York City, while painting portraits, following her love for character profiles of people. She broadened her artistic perspective at the Antwerp Art Academy in Belgium. A beloved teacher guided her towards painting still lives in oils and watercolor. This led her to recognize the nurturing and elevating influence of baroque Dutch Golden Age Flower paintings during her boarding school years, and an intimate discovery of the effects of the elegance of flowers on her psyche unraveled in her paintings.


    “As a Botanical artist, the brilliant and complex construction of irises and roses attracts me as an architectural form.  Purity of line and color that derives from finely tuned drawing and watercolor skills is at the basis of my art, and inspires me to produce refinement in botanical art.”

    An Artist Speaks Season 4 Episode 30 with Guest Artist Phyllis Mantik deQuevedo

    in Art

    This weeks guest is sculpturess Phyllis Mantik deQuevedo of Oaklahoma.  A native of Canada and a graduate of the Alberta College of Art in Calgary, Phyllis moved to the United States in 1981.  She believes that her introduction to sculpture was by design. From early experiences of completing a sculpture, seeing a form emerge from a lump of clay, she has delighted in creating. Out of this personal joy she realizes a responsibility; to create work that adds value to our existence, to evoke a smile; to touch someone’s heart and for a moment to capture an emotion. Her desire is that the transforming experiences in life such as tenderness, intimacy and spirituality would enable new artistic growth and provide inspiration for her sculpture.


    “I believe my responsibility as a sculptor is to create work that adds value to our existence, if only to evoke a simple smile. My hope is to be someone who represents goodness in life by creating, teaching, learning, discovering, sharing, and serving. I identify with the words of architect Samuel Mockbee, who said, “The role of the artist in Society is to lift the spirit, to somehow let us see the goodness in things.” His words incorporate my philosophy as an artist as well.”

    An Artist Speaks Season 4 Episode 26 with Guest Artist Zina Zinchik

    in Art

    Hear artist Zina Zinchik discuss and describe her process in creating her Frozen Collectio of botanical photographs with host Michael Harris.  Zina Zinchik (Seletskaya) became interested in the fine arts in her early childhood, Zina continued to pursue her passion for photography by enrolling into countless art classes and participating in workshops with globally accomplished photographers.  Zina's work has already found homes in many private collections around the world.  “The “Frozen spring” collection was inspired by the arctic vortex visiting New York City this past winter. The artistic influence behind this flower imagery stems from my deep appreciation for the simple, the untainted and the unadulterated beauty found in nature and the logistic restrictions influenced by weather. These captured flowers exemplify growth and renewal struggling from under the freezing effects of global warming.  I’m looking at the world through my lens and loving every minute of it.”

    An Artist Speaks Season 4 Episode 25 with Guest Artist Bin Feng

    in Art

    Hear Fine Art Photogropher Bin Feng describ his artistic process with host Michael Harris.  Bin Feng was born in 1989 in Shanghai, China. He received his BFA from Shanghai Institute of Visual Art in 2012. At the same year, he started the MFA program of Photography in Savannah College of Art and Design, where he currently resides. Being a photographer, he also makes video installations, sculptures and large scale oil paintings. As the result of the language barrier, he becomes an outsider in United States. However, he takes the benefit of it and he is dedicated to act in the gap between the cultural differences.  “This photo series continues to explore the idea of the “American Dream” from an eastern male gaze. By staging the moment of daily life, the artist performs as an actor and jumps between the fiction and reality, which essentially conveys the notion of the history of a man is mobilized by images. I believe art is entertaining.”

    An Artist Speaks Season 4 Episode 21 with Guest Artist John Jaster

    in Art

    Join host Michael Harris as he speaks with artist John Jaster.  John is a part-time painter living in the Southern California mountains. He used to do a lot of painting and drawing years ago but drifted away over time. Although his degrees are in computer science, he never stopped exercising the right side of his brain. John re-engaged with the craft of painting a few years ago when his lovely wife bought him an easel for Christmas. Each new painting he attempts brings a new learning experience.  “I paint with heavy acrylics. My paintings tend to be on large canvases with bold colors in hi-definition. One can identify themes of water, blue skies, and automobiles and Americana throughout most of my work. I describe my format as 'realistic impressions' because, although my work is definitely in the realism genera, I have splashes of impressionistic colors throughout.”
