Mobile Art – APPart – Eighth Flickr Group Showcase – TheAppWhisperer

Share

I am delighted to publish our very latest APPart Mobile Art Flickr Group Showcase. Curated by our editor Bobbi McMurry and produced by myself. Over to Bobbi…(foreword by Joanne Carter).

“It’s hard to believe we are already to the last AppArt showcase of 2015.  I’ve enjoyed being part of this amazing group of artists, it’s been a year of wonderful creativity and growth for so many.  Our exposure to each other’s art and commentary serve as a window to the people behind the art, so while many of us are “friends” only on social media, we likely know more about each other than some of our friends in the “real world”. Thank you for giving so much of yourselves, your creativity, and your time; let’s make 2016 bigger and better!

Ever noticed that sometimes the most brilliant solutions are those that are so simple and seemingly evident that we can’t believe it wasn’t thought of before. The first examples that come to my mind are the plastic ketchup bottle, and wheeled suitcase. “Paradise Lost” is an image that exemplifies the concept of successfully approaching a solution in the simplest way. Created by thelcf666, he’s combined the forbidden fruit with the notorious Serpent who successfully tempted Eve all those years ago. The Serpent’s mouth open wide, fangs revealed as if ready to strike contrasted by the soft palette and gentle nature of hand holding it. This is clearly not Eve’s hand, as it is most definitely that of a man. There is no evident wound, but blood is dripping off the hand from below the apple rather than coming off the fangs. It seems that what we are looking at is Adam’s choice, he’s been handed the ill-fated fruit so obviously evil, but takes a bite all the same. Some say that Eve is to blame for all mankind’s woes, but this image seems to suggest otherwise. Here, Adam also was tempted, that while Eve presented the fruit to Adam, he too was susceptible to a temptation he was unable to resist. The original paradise was lost as a result of poor decision making and lack of willpower by both Adam and Eve”.

Huge congratulations to all of this Showcases featured APPartists:  Mariette Schrijver, Andrea Koerner, Kristie, Kate Zari Roberts, Ile Mont, Patricia Januszkiewicz, Brett Chenoweth, Mandolina Moon, Armineh Hovanesian, Aldo Pacheco, nlmcc, Gary Ryon, Michelle Robinson, Claude Panneton, Barb Nebel, Karen Axelrad, Kirsten Fenton, Diana Nicholette Jeon, Carolyn Hall Young, momurum, Meri Walker, Eliza Badoiu, thelcf666, Giulia Baita, Candice Railton, Poetic Medium, BlemishedEye, Louise Whiting, Lorenka Campos, Allyson Marie, Pat Brown.

APPart Mini – Featuring Mobile Artist Kirsten Fenton

Share

Please enjoy a new section within our APPart Column entitled – APPart Mini.  This is an area where our editor Bobbi McMurry will reach out to mobile artists to enquire more about specific arts of work – over to you Bobbi (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Apps: Union, iColorama, Enlight, Stackables

Bobbi:

I was immediately drawn to this piece created by Kirsten Fenton. She’s done a great job of maintaining just enough detail while subduing that, which is unnecessary. It’s interesting that both the violin and female form are nearly one in the same yet revealing the female anatomy in its entirety requires more than a “G” rating  not true of the violin! I asked Kirsten to share just a bit about her and this work with all our AppArt friends, I hope you’ll enjoy this brief introduction.

Kirsten:

“I’ve been taking iPhone pictures since my iPhone 3. It’s only been about ten months since I started using apps to create art with my photography. I’ve always been good at taking pictures and just “so-so” at all other visual arts. I find the more I create, the more naturally my art just flows out of me.

For “Her Cherished Violin” I was going through my old iPhone pics from earlier this year that I hadn’t really done anything with. I love the female form and flowers so this piece seemed inevitable. My violin has been collecting dust so I’m glad it now has some exposure!

I used Union App to blend the images, then iColorama for the flow; I then went into Enlight to shape, and lastly Stackables for the filtering. Something I would never have been able to do a few months ago! It’s about practicing and learning ‘how’ to use applications when trying to create my vision.”
