(foreword by Joanne Carter)
“Thank you Joanne for the ongoing work you do for the mobile art community and modern photography. I admire you and how you are so accurate every week with your selections artwork. I consider it an honour that you asked me to show some of my favourite images. I hope they inspire other artists to create new work”.
The Image That Is Currently In The Forefront Of My Mind
This is one of the many breathtaking photo’s of Noell Oszvald from Hungary. I came across her work on Instagram and was stunned by the combination of depth and sober way of creating her images. The photo’s look clean but are very warm and moving.
The image that changed my life
When I first got introduced into PhoneArt ( as we called it back in 2010) I was impressed by the work of Liz Dameron. She had a beautiful series with her portraits. I love portraits and was fascinated by her creativity and her disturbing way of using her own face. She still makes very good work! Mobile Art changed my life. Suddenly I was an artist!
The image I wish I had created
The one thing that is difficult to do with a mobile camera is under water photography. Water is a metaphor for the subconscious and that’s why I would love to take pictures under water. I love the mystic atmosphere under the surface.
Artwork That Has Influenced My Art
This is a very difficult one! I do not know what to choose. I think that surrealism and Jugendstil are both art forms that had an effect on my work. I have a lot of favourites and Klimt is one of them. Incredible how a man can capture the essence of the feminine so well.
The image that is most underrated
That’s macro photography. I just love every little secret universe that’s captured in a picture.
The image that changed my mind/ The most recent image that made me sad
This is my eternal sad image. He is dead and I will never get used to that. Pictures of the last days of his life are unbearable to me and I hardly listen to their last cd.
Pictures cannot make me sad. Music and people can.
The most recent image that made me smile
My comfort images
I love this Back to Black from Aylin Argun. Very creative and story telling.
The image I would most like to give as a gift
This Girl with the pearl earring from Johannes Vermeer is one of the most beautiful images ever made. I would love to give this as a gift to someone, and then move in with the receiver.
My earliest artistic memory
This was hanging in my bedroom wall when I was a child. I’m a gemini and my father is an astrologer. This is one piece from a series about the zodiac by the Dutch painter Johfra. He painted surrealistic work full of occult symbolism.
