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 – 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 poem says yes”, explains Wasson.

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.

Introducing Adobe Photoshop Camera – AI-First Camera App that Brings Photoshop Magic to the Palm of Your Hand

Share

The smartphone camera and social media have fundamentally changed the way people of all skill levels create and share their own stories. And while the industry has pushed the limits on hardware, the software magic for photography on your phone has been limited, so say Adobe.

Adobe believe the world is ready for the next chapter, where it’s not just about more mega-pixels, but how you can tell your story in a unique way.

Given Adobe’s mission to empower creativity for all, they’re excited to introduce Adobe Photoshop Camera, an app that re-imagines what’s possible with smartphone photography. Photoshop Camera is a new, AI-powered mobile camera app that brings incredible Photoshop magic directly to the point of capture. It’s available now as a preview for iOS and Android devices and targeted for general availability in 2020.

Adobe has a long history of delivering breakthrough experiences for creatives. And for the past few years, they’re leveraged the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver amazing features to the creative community through Adobe Sensei, their AI platform and framework. They have built Photoshop Camera as a Sensei-first app on their journey to expand their focus to deliver creative tools, including Photoshop, to everyone. With Photoshop Camera and Photoshop Express, they’re increasing your choices for creating with the magic of Photoshop.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 3 November 2019

Romantic love is an obsession, it possesses you“, said Dr Helen Fisher, an anthropologist in her book ‘Why we Love‘ and it’s true. It’s incredibly distracting, falling in love and yet it is perhaps the greatest natural high there is. When you mix Oxytocin – the love hormone with a good amount of Dopamine (the pleasure hormone), you get a very heady mix, perhaps you could say, it makes us insane but what if you’re not looking to fall in love and it creeps up on you when you least expect it…then that’s not walking on air, that’s flying by the seat of your pants…  Can falling in love be diagnosed? I asked myself this week and I found the answer, according to Freud, yes, pretty much and there’s even a genuine condition called ‘broken-heart syndrome‘ when/if/usually things head west – and even knowing that that happens and it’s basically awful, we still crave the primary high. When you fall in love, everything looks better, the rain becomes gentle kissing drops on your face, as opposed to wet, cold, ghastly drops. A traffic jam becomes another excuse to dream of your loved one, as opposed to a delay for an appointment that’s going to cost you dearly. Actually, falling in love is getting into a beautiful trap set up by nature, a natural occurence that’s very hard to fight. The term ‘love is blind’, I feel is fitting, because you never know when your brain will encounter love. It’s a natural muse, one that will leave you puzzled and in deep thought…possessed even and ultimately exhausted…

I hope you all love this weeks mobile photography and art showcase as much as I do. Thank you to all the talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week.
