Bridge Leading Home

Oil on linen
Richard Chandler—New York, NY

I'm powerfully drawn to both the art of cityscape and that of landscape. While my paintings remain rooted in literal reality, they also reveal unseen forces that are continuously exerting themselves against the fixed boundaries of observed forms. Buildings undulate, skies and sidewalks are wildly dappled, and perspectives seem to head toward some extraordinary other-worldly denouement. Yet it all holds together in good order. Normal business is transacted without fuss or anxiety. The rhythms of nature continue to unfold in their timeless cycle. Figures, in fact, are not the least bit exercised by the cosmic forces electrifying their environments. A key message here: there is a relentless urgency to life, whether or not one feels it. For a moment, the veil is parted, and the hidden vibrancy animating the world is revealed.

私は、都市景観アートと風景アートの両方に強く惹かれています。私の絵画は、文字通りそのままの現実に根ざしていますが、観察された形の固定化された境界に対して、絶えず力を及ぼしている目に見えない力をもつまびらかにします。建物は波打ち、空や歩道はひどくまだらになっていて、視点は異常とも言える異世界の結末に向かっているようです。にもかかわらず、それはすべて順調にまとめられています。通常の出来事は、大騒ぎするわけでもなく不安もなしに実行されるのです。自然のリズムは、時代を超えたサイクルの中で展開し続けています。実際、物事はその環境に衝撃を与える宇宙の力によって少なからず動かされているのです。 伝えたいメッセージ:人がそれをどう感じるかどうかにかかわらず、人生には容赦なく切迫した状況が訪れます。ひとたびベールが開かれると、世界に活気を与えていた隠された鮮やかさが明らかになるのです。




Unicell | Xavier Divoux-Cailleres | Paris, France

Traditional and digital painting (Gouache and charcoal on paper + graphic tablet and optical pen on Photoshop)
Xavier Divoux-Cailleres—Paris, France

The human eye perceives the surrounding world by processing a matrix of colors and shapes. However all may not be what it seems at first sight. I use this in a modern approach combining traditional and digital painting to allow my work to be viewed from both near and far, the subject appearing from or disappearing into the abstract.

“From macro to micro we are all the same, all different.”

Enroute Mars

Digital art
Lakshmi Venkatesh—Santa Clara, California

"Every step on the Earth felt like a step off it, closer to Mars, or something fantastic..."

The artwork is a part of a series dedicated to a few prestigious U.S. parks, based on the emotion that each place evokes. Souvenirs and photographs may remind the viewer of the beauty, but I want to transport the viewer to the magical journey that one experiences in these captivating places.

「地球上のすべての一歩は、地球から遠ざかり火星に近づくような、何か素晴らしいものへの一歩のように感じた...」 今回のアートワークは、それぞれの場所が呼び起こす感情に基づいて、有名な米国の公園のために捧げられたシリーズの一部です。お土産や写真は見る人に美しさを思い出させるかもしれませんが、私はこれらの魅惑的な場所で体験する魔法の旅に、見る人をいざないたいと思います。

Yasuka Fukuoka—Fukuoka, Japan

I am the artist who draws with my soul and five senses without being bound by common sense. The world of my artwork is "輪廻転生 / samsara" which is reincarnation around the lives of living things. The main artwork is paintings, video animations, installation works and picture book creation. While I am creating, I wish that the power of expression and art will change the world and spread smiles in the world.
