Mobile Art – APPart – Third Flickr Group Showcase – TheAppWhisperer

Welcome to the third edition of our APPart Showcase section. Every two weeks I as APPart Editor for will review and curate work that was submitted to our APPart Flickr Group.

In addition to curating a showcase video that Joanne has created and featured a sampling of submitted work, I have also highlighted a few images that caught our attention… offering some thoughtful commentary about technique, composition, and subject matter.

If you are not a member of our Facebook group… we highly recommend that you join us!  This is our space for sharing newsworthy information and conducting discussions (what, when, where, why and how) about art and mobile art in general.

Congratulations to this week’s featured APPartists: David Brondeau, Armineh Hovanesian, Juta Jazz, Carolyn Hall Young, Lorenka Campos, Kirsten Fenton, Vivi Hanson Sacerdote, Mandolina Moon, Lee Atwell, Vanessa Vox, Michelle Robinson, Sarah Jarrett, Dani Salvadori, Diana Nicholette Jeon, Jane Schultz, Mansi, Bret Chenoweth, Meri Walker, Riel Noir, Dieter Gaebel.

Lorenka Campos / Title: To Forget Time, To Forgive Life, To Be At Peace

A quick glance indicates a vintage bridal shot, but closer inspection reveals a different image all together. The bride is masked yet staring directly at the viewer, as is the large bird perched on the frame of what seems to be a mirror reflecting a misty train track fading off in the distance. Top all this off with the title and your brain might explode with all the possibilities.


Dieter Gaebel / After Work Party

Nice job Dieter, you’ve “written” a story with this image. The building’s strategic placement combined with their somber expressions seems to say they are carrying the weight of life on their shoulders. The palette and the gently collaged fragments of what appears to be only a couple of images all work perfectly together.


Diana Nicholette Jeon / Bound Up Girl

A beautiful example of expert App-mashing, Diana successfully achieves a highly textured, painterly image. Not quite real, not quite surreal, but definitely compelling. I love how the images fade in and out of clarity in the photos. The rope that binds the figures hands becomes a dominant element with its saturation and sharpness amid the vast tactile appearance elsewhere.


Bobbi McMurry received her BFA from Arizona State University where she focused on painting, drawing, and printmaking. After graduating, she spent many years as an Art Director for custom and newsstand magazines.
