    'The paper has no profil' - The role of the photographer has changed over time. In the past it has been the craft of a few to turn blank paper into a photograph, using the darkroom. Today, all you need to do is press the shutter button. Everyone who owns a camera is a photographer. At least this is the public opinion. Rather than creative quality, all that counts is the size of the camera and the length of the lens. The incredible amount of pictures being produced day by day deprives photography of its mystique.

    Josie's series 'Fractions' use scraps and pieces from old 'failed' paintings to create intuitive arrangements that evoke landscape, still-life, or cosmic events, based on self-imposed restraints.

    I am drawn to landscapes because they are both universal and personal; they are intertwined in both individual lives and collective histories, and are historically and culturally relevant in the art community and in the larger world. Though they are constantly changing, they are ever-present.

    My mark-making is expressive; however, since my finished pieces are so small in scale, the expressiveness of these marks cannot be seen unless the pieces are viewed from a close distance. Thus, I am seeking to depict the contrast between the objective depiction of nature and the subjective human element that is always present in our interpretation of our surroundings.

    'Compact Mindfulness' is a visual diary taken in Japan, Turkey, Laos, and Thailand across the last two and a half years. This series stems from my approach to photography, simplicity through subtraction and a focus on bold colour and light. These images evoke a feeling of personal nostalgia, moments captured on film so they aren't lost to the annals of time. Photography for me is about that connection to the image - each of these images when viewed takes me back directly to the time and place. I photograph my life to keep memories and to document the quiet moments.

    Everything changes around us over the years as we do.. moments of reconsideration and learning points. Over the years I hope that people learn that it’s of no importance how you look, where you are from or what you do for a living. The only thing of importance (from my own perspective) is truthfulness to yourself, and being able to give and share in life and being surrounded by the people that you want to be surrounded by.

    So a mix of old and new, figures with a certain emotional load and will tell a colorful beautiful new insight. That’s what I’m trying to achieve with these series.

    I have done a lot of research into the psychology of curiosity in relation to photography. I was intrigued as to why I was captivated by some of my photographs more than others. During my research I found certain aspects of a photograph can be manipulated and controlled to help conjure the feeling of curiosity, by excluding and including certain subject matter a certain way, I am able to alter the ‘balance’. My photographs have become an exploration into this particular ‘balance’ to which I will continue to build my work.

    I’m a self-taught photographer, originally coming from Russia. I’m not a great talker, so trying to explain and express the way I see the world around me through the lens. I really love what I’m doing. It’s a great antidepressant. It keeps my head clear.

    This 6 photo series is called "My Irish days". I would say it's more like my photo diary. I keep records of human faces, their feelings, emotions. They are all so different, with their own dramas, life stories. If you look at them, their eyes, hands, backs say it all. It's absolutely beautiful...

    painting

    My work is archetypal: visually abstract but conceptually specific. I use symbols and associations of symbols that constitute a theme or narrative. Exploration of materials and ideas is a large part of my creative process, and I do not limit myself by tradition or habit.

    My work is an extension of modernism with emphases upon new symbols used in new ways and with materials of myriad kind.The result is powerful: powerful form, color, style, content and a richness of material that, together, fuse the many currents – techniques, styles, materials – of modernism in the work.

    painting

    As an artist with a focus in portraiture I am constantly interrogating the norms and boundaries of the figure painting genre. My painting practice entails equal parts of chance, improvisation, and calculated elements of realism combined to create humorous painting mutations. With determination, I strive to depict the variety of forms, both real and imagined, that the human and animal body can conform to. The work that I create has an affinity for the strange, awkward, and grotesque while always maintaining a strong sense of sincerity.
