Mobile Photography / Art New Year Resolutions 2019 From Artists Throughout The World

Share

We are delighted to publish our New Year Resolutions for 2019 from a selection of highly talented mobile photographers and artists throughout the world. As in previous years we have asked mobile photographers and artists for their New Year Resolutions with an accompanying image or video . Thank you to everyone who has contributed, they all make great reading, viewing and are inspiring, we are forever grateful to you all.

One of my New Year Resolutions this year is to accept an invitation to at least one Private View Exhibition each month. Naturally, I do not want to attend these on my own, so I am inviting our readers to contribute to each opportunity by supplying questions for the artist I am viewing. The first private view I will be attending this year, is in early February, with Tracey Emin, at her major solo exhibition entitled ‘A Fortnight of Tears’. I’ll be chatting with Emin there, so please forward any questions you would like me to ask her, on your behalf. Another of my New Year Resolutions is to try to give each individual artist more of my time. That’s no easy task but I believe so strongly in all of your work, I want to encourage and help as much as I can. So, to each and every one of you, I wish you a very Happy New Year, with much good health, wealth and success!

(Editors note: If you have not contributed to this post and you would like to, or if you have sent me your brief and I have not included it here, please let me know and I will open up this post and add it and of course you have my apologises in advance).

Mobile Photography & Art – Maria Cecilia de São Thiago Joins Our Online Gallery

Share

We are thrilled today to annouce Award Winning Mobile Photographer and Artist, Maria Cecilia de São Thiago has accepted our invitation to join TheAppWhisperer Online Gallery! We are exhibiting sixty exclusive highly collectable prints of São Thiago’s photographs. Available to purchase for the first time on museum grade archival paper stocks in strictly limited edition print runs, of one print, per image size.

São Thiago’s photographs are exquisite and allegorical in nature. Their vitality is instrumental in pulling the viewer into a very intimate world chronicling the self and beyond.  Mysticism and spirituality have long informed São Thiago’s practice and she is refreshingly transparent about her work.  She once told me, “my photos carry in each of them everything that I have learned, what I have lived, and what I have suffered”. 

We have all brushed up against the sublime feeling of wonder, with sudden realisation that we do not know. Viewing Sao Thiago’s images enable us to recreate that emotion, allowing ourselves a bit of wonder, with the potential to forget what we think we know and to revel in the immediacy of the magic of her work, holding us close, as we unravel.

Influenced by two great Viennese modernists, Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt, it’s fascinating to view the concision and extremely intelligent images that São Thiago creates. Each as luxurious, immediate and above all, tender to the next. 

Each artwork is verified by São Thiago as well as the TheAppWhisperer archive. Prints are supplied on museum-grade archival Fine Art Giclée Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper and provided with TheAppWhisperer Archive certificate of authenticity to provide limited edition provenance. Limited edition prints accompanied by a numbered holographic certificate digitally signed by the artist in addition to the TheAppWhisperer Archive logo, providing limited edition provenance, particularly relevant should the artwork change ownership in future.

São Thiago joins our successful featured artists, including Christine Sobczak, Jane Schultz, Helen Breznik, Jill Lian, Gianluca Ricoveri, Lorenka Campos, Susan Rennie, Sean Hayes, Glenn Homann and Barbara Nebel.

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Christine Sobczak

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the first of this years series of interviews and the thirteenth of this fascinating series, within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled “Seeing through the eyes…”. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there is a portrait of Mont, seen through the eyes of Christine Sobczak, what a gift!

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group or use this hashtag on Instagram #tawportraitofanartist, this way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Joyce Harkin from the United Kingdom

Share

Today, we are publishing our twenty seventh visual interview, this time with Joyce Harkin from the United Kingdom. Harkin’s art is an amalgamation of dichotomies: inside/outside, public/private, high/low – all dynamic. Her images speak eloquently to us about our own life experiences at the same depicting her own. One of Harkin’s most admirable qualities as an artist, is her hunger for inspiration and this is reflected in her varied work. When embarking on a new creation, Harkin reaches the summit, she uniquely manages to not only arrive with an aesthetically pleasing visual image but one which ensures all the elements involved are included as intended. 

I am so excited about this new Interview section within TheAppWhisperer. A picture speaks a thousand words, so says the English language idiom and as this is a website by and for visual artists, we felt this section was long overdue. We asked a series of mobile photographers and artists ten questions, in text format and we asked them to respond in their very best way, visually and in their own style of photography/art, the results are unique and incredibly exciting.

To read our previously published interviews, with Deborah McMillion, M. Cecilia Sao Thiago, Christine Sobczak, Liliana Schwitter, Armineh Hovanesian, Lorenka Campos, Donna Donato, Eliza Badoiu, Juta Jazz, Susan Rennie, Kate Zari Roberts, Lynette Sheppard, Debara Splendorio, Irene Oleksiuk, Davide Capponi, Vanessa Vox, Amanda Parker, Clint Cline, Christine Mignon, Bonobo Stone, Jerry Jobe, Joshua Sarinana, Meri Walker, Alexis Rotella, Jenny Pieters and Alon Goldsmith please go here.

Today, we are publishing our twenty sixth visual interview, this time with Alon Goldsmith from the United States. Goldsmith has created his own trademark style, as a pioneering mobile colour photographer. Goldsmith’s images are representative of european Harry Gruyaert’s (b.1941), when he courted Kodachrome while simultaneously exploding into the art scene which earned him entry into the … Read moreVisualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Alon Goldsmith from the United States

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Jenny Pieters from Johannesburg, South Africa

Share

Today, we are publishing our twenty fifth visual interview, this time with Jenny Pieters from South Africa. Pieters art strikes me as bursting with emotional depth and context. There’s a tenderness within her way of seeing, mixed with hope and despair but more so with light. With an evocation of time and place, her images imbue a deep sense interconnecting with us all, deeply. Her work is about honesty and trust with immense integrity and deserving of our unmitigated respect. (foreword by Joanne Carter)

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Jerry Jobe from the United States

Share

Today, we are publishing our twenty first visual interview, this time with Jerry Jobe from the United States. Jobe creates a compelling and abstract utopia in this series of works for our visualisation interview. Rich in colour, the images are sensuous, drawing us into the illusion of abstraction. Each image collides and rhymes in intensity as they shout out his answers. Fragments of his own body, appear with full force and meaning. The overall effect is actually a fully achieved work in which the forms of images, meld and interlace into an exotic whole.

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Bonobo Stone from Canada

Today, we are publishing our twentieth visual interview, this time with Bonobo Stone from Canada. There’s almost an obsessional chemistry in Stone’s art, romanticised mythical beings plunged into epic confrontations and transformations with full force. There’s a through-line of emotion in his work, gravitating towards the light with an illusion delivering a narrative of the vapidity of … Read moreVisualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Bonobo Stone from Canada
