Today, we are publishing our sixteenth interview in our new series, Hope in Adversity. One that’s based around art, artists and isolation during the midst of Covid-19. This interview is with award winning mobile artist with Clint Cline from Florida, United States.  Cline employs a technique within his painting that embodies religion, storytelling and abstract art. His paintings are powerful, mysterious amalgams of landscapes and unique craggy forms that elicit abstract shapes, symmetrically balancing powerful colour tones. Grounded by the love and support of his family, his faith and mobile art, Cline delves deeper into some projects that he explains, he has ‘long neglected’. The imagery employed has the simplicity of a Shaker chair but the discipline, calmness and originality that radiates from Cline’s paintings, makes for the envy of many an artist. Enjoy!

To read others in this series of interviews with Jill Lian, Vicki Cooper, Gerry Coe, Sarah Bichachi, Sukru Mehmet Omur, Phyllis Shenny, Alisa Smith Williams, Joy Barry, Ile Mont and, Fleur Schim, Fiona Christian, Peter Wilkin, Ile Mont and Susan Latty, please follow this link

Mobile Photography & Art – ‘Hope in Adversity Interview’ with Fleur Schim from from Leucadia, California, United States

I am currently shielding for twelve weeks and in my home, we have all had to make adaptions to adjust to this pandemic, although, at least, currently, we are all well. I’ve been recalling many of the good words our dear friend and talented artist Carolyn Hall Young shared with us, not least ‘in any given situation we can always choose, hope over fear‘ – let’s all choose hope.

I am aware there are many others also in a similar situation at the moment and I felt it would be a good idea to create an interview, reflecting these times with stunning imagery. This is a new series of interview with mobile photographers and artists discovering what they’re creating and how in these difficult times. Our fifteenth interview is with talented mobile photographer, Fleur Schim from California, United States.  This is an interview that embraces the natural resources of nature itself. It’s an example of what the Japanese call shinrin-yoku which translates to ‘forest bathing’. There are a host of psychophysiological benefits to be gained from merely being, passively, in natural versus urban settings. Enjoy!

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 5 April 2020

Influenced by Susan Sontag, Maggie Nelson and Elaine Scarry, ‘The Art of the Body’ by Alexander Allison has perhaps been my fastest read yet. Not that there’s any race with reading, but sometimes, it’s so impossible for me to put a book down, that even when making dinner, I’ll prop a book open and this is what happened to me during this further week of lock down 2020. ‘The Art of the Body’ is a book about a woman, Janet, who cares a lot. She cares about what people think of her, she cares about the opportunities she’s wasted, she cares about the hurt she’s caused. But Janet is also paid to care – she’s responsible for the welfare of Sean, a young artist, living and working with Cerebral Palsy. The story explores dignity and art through an intimate examination of bodies at their most vulnerable. It’s a tale of all that really matters, the relationship between art and the body, becoming intimate with a body in a non sexual way, at times it’s an uncomfortable read but it’s so finely written and so resonant now. Sometimes, as artists, when our brief is so specifically limited, the art that we create becomes immensely affecting, so deft and the ultimate release. Whether you’re disabled or able bodied, art is a life-changer. Stay well, stay safe, stay at home.

Thank you to all the talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week. If you would like your work to be considered for entry in to our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group, please submit it to our dedicated group, here.

Mobile Photography & Art – Saturday Poetry ‘Kindness’ by Naomi Shihab Nye with Jeroen Hendriks

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is entitled ‘Kindness’ by Naomi Shihab Nye and I felt this was the perfect poem today, post birthday. I received a huge amount of birthday wishes, artwork and personal messages from all around the world yesterday and I have still not read them all, I savour them. My overwhelming feeling was of the kindness of everyone who took the time and trouble to communicate with me, about something so relatively trivial as my birthday, in relation to the devastation of the world in which we are currently living. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I think you’ll all really enjoy this poem and the corresponding matched artwork.

Naomi Shihab Nye was born on March 12, 1952, in St. Louis, Missouri, to a Palestinian father and an American mother. During her high school years, she lived in Ramallah in Palestine, the Old City in Jerusalem, and San Antonio, Texas, where she later received her BA in English and world religions from Trinity University.

Nye is the author of numerous books of poems, most recently Cast Away: Poems for Our Time (Greenwillow Books, 2020.) Her other books of poetry include The Tiny Journalist (BOA Editions, 2019); Voices in the Air: Poems for Listeners (Greenwillow Books, 2018); Transfer (BOA Editions, 2011); You and Yours (BOA Editions, 2005), which received the Isabella Gardner Poetry Award; and 19 Varieties of Gazelle: Poems of the Middle East (Greenwillow Books, 2002), a collection of new and selected poems about the Middle East.

She is also the author of several books of poetry and fiction for children, including Habibi (Simon Pulse, 1997), for which she received the Jane Addams Children’s Book award in 1998.

Naomi Shihab Nye gives voice to her experience as an Arab-American through poems about heritage and peace that overflow with a humanitarian spirit. About her work, the poet William Stafford has said, “her poems combine transcendent liveliness and sparkle along with warmth and human insight. She is a champion of the literature of encouragement and heart. Reading her work enhances life.”

I have selected this image by @hendrinua – Jeroen Hendriks as it represents the kindness of nature, heavy with blossom. You can follow him on Instagram, here.

If you would like to be featured in our Saturday Poetry section, please ensure you include the hashtag #theappwhisperer to any images posted to Instagram. This will mean we will be able to consider it.
