New Projects – Our New Form of Artistic Installation aka ‘The Quilt’ Is Ready!

Share

We’re delighted to inform our readers that the quilt that so many of you contributed to, has now been completed. For those of you not aware of this project, it involved mobile artists contributing one image and each one was then carefully included within a large quilt to be displayed at the next gallery show or even Mobile Arts Festival. There has been a few obstacles along the way and we have overcome each one. This quilt was sewed together and finalised by none other than mobile artist, Lorenka Campos’ mother in law. We all owe her much gratitude. The quilt is now with Lorenka Campos, so if you would like to display it at your next event, please contact her for details.

I have also been reminded and I shouldn’t have needed to be however, “Linda Toki did the whole layout of the quilt and had it printed. She also spent days working on the catalog so I really think she deserves a shout out as the quilt would never have happened without her”. We all need to give huge thanks to Linda M. Toki – join me!!

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.

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @lisarmitchellphotography – Lisa Mitchell, she is a highly respected and talented mobile photographer/artist with the most discerning eye. Mitchell has been granted full access to our Instagram account and she is doing a very impressive job. We are very proud of her!

On Day 6 @lisarmitchellphotography writes “Day 6 of my IG takeover, and today I have chosen this wonderful image by @lorenka . I am an avid follower of Lorenka’s beautifully, emotive work. It speaks to me from the heart. The different facets to this piece with it’s clever layering and textural images are simply divine ❤”

On Day 7@lisarmitchellphotography writes “and so today is Day 7 of my IG takeover, and as it’s my birthday I have chosen a selection of wonderful images rather than just one to celebrate! Congratulations to @public_lens @lars.hansen1303 @before.1st.light @clarisse_debout @jorgeolaveriveros @effe5 @elizabadoiu @imagomimago @louisewhiting ❤❤❤”

Later on Day 7 @lisarmitchellphotography writes here for Day 7 of my IG takeover, and as today is my birthday, I have chosen a selection of wonderful images to celebrate! Congratulations to @gilliannb @psychephoto @sunflowerof21 @sugarama @gingerlucero @diananicholettejeon @giuliabaita @harkinjoyce @kate.z.roberts ❤❤❤❤

A little later on Day 7 @lisarmitchellphotography writes “Day 7 of my IG takeover, and as it’s my birthday today, I have also included aselection of my own work to celebrate! I have an eclectic style and shoot with Iphone mainly but also camera. I love edited works and straight shots, landscape to portraiture, and all things in between. I soon have a Solo Show with over 70 new works, and here is a selection of the pieces I will be exhibiting ❤”

On Day 8 @lisarmitchellphotography here, and Day 8 of my IG takeover (this really is such fun!) Today I have chosen this wonderfully emotive image by @npatienza_art .There are so many alluring elements to this piece, and I love the written script that has been layered onto it.

Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @cawestruck – Carol Wiebe – Day 7 – the story so far…

Share

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @cawestruck – Carol Wiebe. She is a highly respected and talented artist and has been granted full access to our Instagram account and she has done such a magnificent job. We are very proud of her! Please take a look at her Instagram feed to see what an incredible artist she is.

On Day 7 @cawestruck highlighted the work of talented mobile photographer and artist @theartofmayte and she writes, It is my pleasure to highlight this image by @theartofmayte. The image has a futuristic look, as if an Artificial Intelligence has decorated its “skin” with beautiful designs, and is staring out into the cosmos. @theartofmayte likes to experiment with a wide range of images, from the natural world (trees, flowers, animals), to manmade objects (especially architecture) but her major focus is faces. Whatever her subject matter, this artist loves saturated color, dramatic lighting and a touch of the surreal”.

Later on Day 7 @cawestruck felt compelled to highlight @theartofmayte’s latest work and it’s not surprising, this is what she writes I am jumping right back in with another work by @theartofmayte. This image just came throught the Instagram feed and it is another example of Mayte’s photo mastery. She takes facial liberties, as artists are wont to do, but it is unmistakingly face with all kinds of textural and design details to find pleasure in as you study it”

A little later on Day 7 @cawestruck highlighted @marietteschrijver’s – Mariëtte Schrijver’s  very fine work and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight “A horse is a horse, of course“ by @marietteschrijver. How could I not choose this image with its oh so clever distortion, done to such perfection? That hump in the neck is just wrong, and its face has the look of bone, and the mane is weirdly crimped but . . . . you still know it’s a horse. The question is, would you still want to ride it?”.

As if things couldn’t get better on Day 7, then @cawestruck highlighted @harkinjoyce’s – Joyce Harkin’s fabulous mobile art and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight this image by Joyce Harkin, aka @harkinjoyce. Joyce is a prolific digital artist who says she needs assistance to help her STOP making digital art. At the risk of sounding hard hearted, I am hoping her pleas go unheeded because we would miss out on images like this one. I love the bold colors, and the suggestion of a figure, with its missing neck. Perhaps this woman is too much in her head: the connection to her body is unnecessary. The brilliant red architecture behind the figure forms a dramatic backdrop with its hard lines and smooth surfaces, except for that scribble, which makes you try to read it for clues as to what is going on here. All in all, the image suggests an intriguing story”.

And then @cawestruck discovered the mystical and hugely talented world of @liliaschwitter  – Liliana Schwitter and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight “into the Light” by @lilaschwitter. Such arresting editing has gone into this image. You know there is a couple, and you think that may be fear in the gentleman’s eyes, or perhaps just concern, but you really do not know why the woman appears to be falling over. Is she sick, about to faint, laughing so that she can hardly stand up? In any case, we see multiple versions of hands, as if propping up is definitely needed and from various vantage points. Oh, and there are very many buttons on the woman’s torso. Perhaps her partner has been pushing a lot of them? Nor are we clear about the surroundings. All we know is the direction in which this couple is headed, straight for us, and we want to help, or at least hear the story that is playing out. But if the look on his face is any indication, we will not be trusted with that story unless they do not have a mobile device at hand and he needs to make a call, quickly. Luckily, ours is charged and ready”.

Thank you so much dear Carol, it is our privilege to see #theappwhisperer through your eyes, it’s so good.

Like all of these artists, please continue to tag your images on Instagram with #theappwhisperer in the hope to being selected and featured!
