Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 18 November 2018

Share

I believe there’s now a universal dilemma we suffer, that feels like a personal problem. We all have so many friends, just look on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, they’re all there but yet so many of us wander ‘lonely as a cloud’ and feel disconnected from our species. I believe it’s important not to collect friends, like trophies but truly value the ones that enhance our lives, bring smiles to our faces and warmth to our hearts. We know that none of our relationships are fixed in perpetuity, letting people go, is as important as keeping them close. But when they leave us, as their lives end, it’s hard to keep the door ajar, so those we once cherished can walk back in. One dear friend, who has passed, used to phone me several times a week, the phone is not my first means of communication. I can’t hear well so it’s not without it’s issues but it was the best way for her to communicate, so I perserved and found using my bluetooth headphones and digital aids, connected to my phone, a great solution. Now she’s gone and I really want to talk to her and I can’t, I really want and need to talk to someone…, not too close… and this is a very modern day problem. So many of my friends communicate with their art, their self-expression is clearly evident in this weeks mobile photography and art showcase and I love them all for it. The answer to this universal dilemma lies in not blaming others, or the advent of technology but in taking action. The joy of the cadence of a friend’s speech and the excitement of a conversation about something unanticipated is something to be relished albeit deeply desired.

Share

Welcome back to our fifty ninth post in our Tickle Your Fancy section. ‘Tickle Your Fancy’ includes a round-up of between seven to eight links to articles from around TheAppWhisperer over the past few weeks, that you may by chance have missed.

Just to explain the title for this sectionTickle Your Fancy is an English idiom and essentially means that something appeals to you and perhaps stimulates your imagination in an enthusiastic way, we felt it would make a great title for this new section of the site.

Enjoy!

Mobile Photography / Art – Saturday Poetry – ‘When Giving Is All We Have’ by Alberto Rios

Share

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is entitled ‘When Giving Is All We Have’ by Alberto Rios, 1952 and I felt it perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving period. Ríos was born on September 18, 1952, in Nogales, Arizona. He received a BA degree in 1974 and an MFA in creative writing in 1979, both from the University of Arizona. “Alberto Ríos is a poet of reverie and magical perception,” wrote the judges of the 2002 National Book Awards, “and of the threshold between this world and the world just beyond.”

He holds numerous awards, including six Pushcart Prizes in both poetry and fiction, the Arizona Governor’s Arts Award and fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Since 1994 he has been Regents Professor of English at Arizona State University in Tempe, where he has taught since 1982. In 2013, Ríos was named the inaugural state poet laureate of Arizona. In 2014, Ríos was elected a Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets. In 2017, he was appointed as the new director of the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing at Arizona State University.

I have matched art work entitled ‘Pushkar, Rajasthan, India’ by @rklika –  Klika – retired marine/army photographer with this poem. You can view and follow him on Instagram here.

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Jo Sullivan

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the tenth in our brand new series of interviews 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 Jo Sullivan, what a gift!

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

Mobile Photography & Art – The Quilt Project at The Kemp Center for the Arts in Texas, United States

Share

Yesterday, our community mobile photography and art travelling quilt was fixed for display, for the first time, at The Kemp Center for the Arts in Texas, United States. In this photograph (below) you can see mobile artist, Lorenka Campos standing next to this hand sewn gorgeous project. Each square represents artwork from one artist and there are 234 squares. I am particularly proud of ‘my’ square, as I share it with our dear friend and huge supporter of mobile art, Carolyn Hall Young. Sadly, she had already passed when this project got underway, but as she meant so much to all of us, I felt if I submitted one (of the many) portraits she had hand and digitally painted of myself, then we would both be included, together. Each artist has their own story behind each square, each one fascinating. Together, we make up one complete joyous representation of our art community as we share ten years of mobile photography/art and our hopes and dreams.

Lorenka Campos’ artwork itself is being exhibited at this venue, entitled ‘Remixing Dreams’. The opening ceremony is 16 November from 6 pm – 8 pm. The exhibition runs from November 16, 2018 until January 27, 2019.

Huge thanks to Lorenka Campos, for making this possible.

In addition, if you are able and you would like to make a donation to help with past and future expenses of our travelling quilt, please send a PayPal payment using Lorenka’s PayPal address – lorenka61@yahoo.com.

Following this exhibition our quilt will be travelling to Denver, Colorado, US where it has been booked for the months of March and April 2019 by Kate Zari Roberts.
