Mobile Photography & Art – Anca Balaj Joins Our Online Gallery!

Anca Balaj is one of the finest mobile art draughtsman of her generation. As a visual creative, specialising in mobile photography and art direction, her practice combines a natural interest in academic research and literature to create a unique and radical style of mobile painting in which the conceptual meets the visual.

Balaj’s art is created with an Apple iPad and is intended to be scaled up into larger works where her economic execution and whimsical expression reveal an intimate side to her practice. Her imagery is very direct, working empirically, ‘inside an idea’.

Her rigorous style of fine art emphasises a dynamic but balanced relationship between complementary colours such as blue, red, green and orange, completing each other. They are at their most intense when placed together. Balaj adjusts her colours to obtain the maximum intensity.

Balaj is destined to be one of the decisive influences in mobile art and we are proud to represent her within TheAppWhisperer Online Gallery! We are exhibiting fifteen exclusive highly collectable prints of Balaj’s work. Available to purchase for the first time on museum grade archival paper stocks in strictly limited edition print runs, of ten prints, per image size.

Anca Balaj joins our successful featured artists, including Christine Sobczak, Jane Schultz, Helen Breznik, Jill Lian, Gianluca Ricoveri, Lorenka Campos, Susan Rennie, Sean Hayes, Glenn Homann, M. Cecilia São Thiago and Barbara Nebel as well as Mare Nostrum Parisian Exhibition, including works from Bilgehan Yilmaz, Ece Mizrakci, Esra Tanoren, Filiz Ak, Fusun Degirmencioglu, Hacer Onal, Hulya Ergir Sofuglu, Manuela Matos Monteiro, Mehmet Duyulmus, Mehmet Omur, Merih Soylu, Mifdale Oguzoglu, Nesrin Kavrakoglu, Nukhet Poda Gofer, Peter Wilkin, Pinar Camlibel, Selda Ozcirpici, Semra Duyulmus, Serap Utas, Sibel Erdamar, Suha Ari, Zeynep Giz Ungun.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 17 November 2019

I was delighted this week to learn that 45 year old Ivorian artist, Joana Choumali has become the first African photographer to scoop the Prix Pictet prize, winning with a series of embroidered photographs responding to the trauma of terrorist attacks in Ivory Coast in 2016. The series is entitled ‘Ca va aller‘ – meaning – ‘it will be ok‘, a reference to stoical reaction to adversity that she said permeated Ivorian culture. Her images were printed onto canvas and then later embroidered with stitches directly onto the surface. Combining photographic imagery with fabric and therefore, creating ‘conceptual portraits‘. She created this work ‘as a need to process the pain‘. She said ‘each stitch was a way to recover, to lay down the emotions, the loneliness and mixed feelings I felt‘. Her work is stunning but what particularly interested me was the way it helped her to process her inner pain. I believe pain is the root to many artists’ work, whether that be pictorial, sculpture or the written word and I refuse to believe anyone who tells me, and they frequently do, that it has no place – it has every place. I am luckily enough to be invited to many exhibitions and shows around the world and earlier this year, I attended the opening of Tracey Emin’s brutal portraits of female pain exhibition ‘a fortnight of tears‘. I spoke with her and discussed her work. Her background repeats in much of her art and as she gets older, also the sleeplessness, exhaustion, whirling anxieties and the fear of running out of time contribute. The power of female art has become vital for women and not ‘just‘ artists but for all women. French writer and poet Andre Breton once described Frida Kahlo’s art as a ‘ribbon around a bomb‘, I say, standby for the blast…

Our eighty sixth interview in this series of intimate interviews is with talented photographer and artist Kaoru Shintaku from Singapore. You may know her from her popular Instagram account entitled @patragraphy. Shintaku is Japanese born and grew up in Tokyo but currently she lives in Singapore. This interview is inspiring for many reasons, her imagery which includes florals, cityscapes and landscapes are as precise as her language, as she utilises the use of colour and tone in tandem. Shintaku maintains her sang-froid throughout whilst simultaneously charming us as she hews closely to her thoughts and feelings. Enjoy!

Today, we congratulate mobile photographer Robin Robertis with this stunning image, entitled,

“Every now and again,

you will feel a dull ache in your soul.

A gentle humming around your heart.

A longing for something without a name.

If i ever told you to obey anything,

this would be it.

Listen to the call of your authentic self.

That part of you that lives just outside of your own skin.

Let it have its way with you.

I have died a hundred times trying to ignore it”.

~ Mia Hollow.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 10 November 2019

Many people write to me each week and I love it. Sometimes, I am asked for advice, sometimes I’m asked about me. This week a few times, it was mostly the latter. I was asked, ‘how do you keep coming up with ideas?’, ‘where do they generate from?‘ and then ‘how do you deal with a creative rut?‘. I think the latter was the hardest because the first two I answered with ‘I’m constantly gathering ideas, things that I see each day, people I meet, observations that I make, judgements (I hate to say), but they all encapsulate and become the images and ideas that I’ve been having for the past ten years and I amalgamate them’. To answer, ‘how do you deal with a creative rut?‘, was a lot tougher. I love writing but sometimes I get stuck, as I am with one project now, that has pained me for too many tortuous months. I don’t have a solid process, sometimes I surprise myself that anything gets written at all. But sometimes, I get an idea and find the angle I need and write the whole thing up in no time, wtf.  When I get stuck, when I hit a creative rut, I have to take myself out of all of the usual things that I do. So, I’ll pick up a book for example, that might have absolutely nothing to do with creativity, if I can say that, because the fact that it’s been written is a sign of creativity isn’t it? – yes, I frequently argue with myself. Anyway, if you haven’t read Naomi Wolf’s book, Vagina, then you should, specifically the paragraph on the creative power of the orgasm, it really helped me to formulate my next project and reminded me of a quote within the main tome that I am currently re-reading, Sontag by Benjamin Moser, chapter 12, when Sontag has an affair with ‘Irene’ who was by all accounts totally luscious and Sontag was quoted as saying ‘she could make a rock come‘, how glorious!  Writing can be a lonely occupation but sometimes ideas flow out of me like a goddam fountain climaxing. I would say, as I have often repeated, resilience is key, and remember when you were 20 and looking forward, never back? As you get older, when the going gets tough, people look back, why do that? I don’t do that. Life is still in front of you and it’s that that needs to be treasured. Keep going…

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is entitled ‘Countdown as Slow Kisses’ by Michael Wasson. “We are given these bodies—full of beauty, ache, and history—and are told to survive. We lean into joy and marvel, into our living, and yet we know that what we desire ultimately devours us. Might we surrender as we climax toward our gorgeous, unbearable ruin? This poem says yes”, explains Wasson.

Michael Wasson is Nimíipuu from the Nez Perce Reservation in Lenore, Idaho. He earned a BA from Lewis-Clark State College and an MFA from Oregon State University. The author of Swallowed Light (Copper Canyon Press, 2021), Self-Portrait with Smeared Centuries (Éditions des Lisières, 2018), translated by Beatrice Machet, and This American Ghost (YesYes Books, 2017), Wasson is the recipient of a Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Fellowship, a Native Arts & Cultures Foundation National Artist Fellowship in Literature, the Adrienne Rich Award for Poetry, and others. He currently lives in Japan.

I have matched this image by @velvet_iris_photography – Mari Mansourian – with this poem entitled ‘Up in the Air’. You can view more of her work here.
