Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @cawestruck – Carol Wiebe – Days 5 & 6 – 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 5 @cawestruck highlighted the work of talented mobile photographer and artist @headattacks and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight this image by @headattacks. When I look through Manuela Gaebel’s gallery, I see other images that illustrate what I love about this one. She has focus, meaning Manuela has stripped down what she has chosen to show to something essential. There is not a lot of extraneous detail, though there is the suggestion of something “more,” heightened by texture, lighting, layering. That something more keeps me looking for clues as to what I may have missed, and encourages me to speculate on the meaning behind this, an activity I always appreciate being stimulated to do!”

Later on Day 5 @cawestruck discovered the work and world of @jack__mallon – Jack Mallon and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight “Crossing That Confounded Bridge” by @jack_mallon. I love seeing just the suggestion of a bridge, and the person crossing in those practical shoes. Mallon’s use of suggestion has allowed me, as the viewer, to overlay the bridges I have had to cross, the confounding dilemmas I have had to overcome. I feel like I am in solidarity with whoever is crossing in his image. Mallon mentions that as far as his photos go, he likes to “app them til it hurts.” I like that dedication. I imagine him taking a photo and using apps until he has brought it to the place his mind imagined it to be. In other words, made it cross that confounded bridge!”

A little later on Day 5 @cawestruck portrayed the work of @iphoneartgirl – Meri Walker and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight “Strange Fruit” by @iphoneartgirl. I imagine Meri Aaron Walker as a walking camera. Everywhere she goes, she is composing photos, and luckily for us, she usually has her mobile device ready so that we can see through her eyes. Nothing is too mundane to be considered in a new light, elevated, reconfigured, reconstructed. Where any “normal” person would simply see annoying detritus caught in the branches of a tree, the refreshingly abnormal iphoneartgirl sees strange fruit. Which could lead one into a whole conversation about why it is there, what is strange about it, what effect it has on the tree—all while shooting more pics at 120. Not to mention that Meri probably has a story blossoming in her head, of the same title, to offer on Stellar. Come to think of it, Meri has spent decades bearing her own strange fruit, affording the mobile community many delightful opportunities to taste it”.

On Day 6 @cawestruck highlighted the work of @Wphotonick and she writes “It is my pleasure to highlight this image by @wphotonick. The deft layering renders a lacy look that adds both femininity and texture. The scratches and color blending further heighten our interest, and those luscious lips are begging for attention. @wphotonick likes lips; her gallery makes that clear, but she pays much more than lip service to her images. She lovingly tends them with sure artistry and careful attention to detail. Take time to enjoy her offering!”.

Later on Day 6 @cawestruck accentuated the work of @lindahollier an she writes, “It is my pleasure to highlight “The Sacred Feminine” by @lindahollier. I can hear the rustle of skirts when I gaze upon this image, partly because of the raised effect, which suggests texture. I somehow know this is femininity at its most sacred, partly because of the title, but also because there is a grace and beauty to the implied movement. The face is not revealed—I can superimpose, in my mind, any face I care to add, even my own. This inclusiveness is pleasing to me. Hollier’s gallery presents more feminine forms for my delectation, all graceful and beautiful. I am curious about the fact that almost all the figures are turned away from the viewer. I speculate if this is to preserve anonymity and allow me, or any viewer, to step right into the form and make up our own stories, clothed in Linda Hollier’s stunning digital attire”.

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!

“There are so many things that art can’t do. It can’t bring the dead back to life, it can’t mend arguments between friends, or cure AIDS, or halt the pace of climate change. All the same, it does have some extraordinary functions, some odd negotiating ability between people, including people who never meet and yet who infiltrate and enrich each other’s lives. It does have a capacity to create intimacy; it does have a way of healing wounds, and better yet of making it apparent that not all wounds need healing and not all scars are ugly”. Another quote from the book that I am still studying (that I mentioned last week), ‘The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone’ by Olivia Laing. Speaking from personal experience, this is how I view what we do here at TheAppWhisperer, sharing art, infiltrating each other’s lives with such richness, enables us to resonate with a divine sense of wholeness. This weeks mobile photography and flickr group showcase is tantamount to that. Enjoy!

Art and health are in-explicitly linked, we know the obvious health benefits and therapeutic advantages of creating physical art with paintings and photography but also it’s linked with literature and medicine. Many will notice ‘the ‘language barrier’ when visiting a doctor.  Sometimes your doctor may not understand your condition because you cannot describe it lucidly enough and in turn, your doctor cannot describe the proposed treatment because he cannot explain it squarely to you. Language is integral to medicine, as an art, this means language is integral to our health.  Chekhov famously quipped: “Medicine is my lawful wife and literature my mistress; when I get tired of one, I spend the night with the other.”

The translation I have created in this weeks mobile photography and art showcase, will enable all to understand our art as both a metaphor and reality. Medicine contributes to literature, art contributes to our health, we are one. Enjoy!
