My Creative Journey as an Artist

BY FATIMA ARGUN

"Paintings are like children-- it's hard to say which one you love the most," so says artist Fatima Argun, as she shares her colorful and vibrant paintings and the inspirations behind them. She shows how she tries to balance colors, shapes, and textures, and explains the various sources of inspiration that give her works a special quality: the richness of the Turkish culture, Rumi's poetry, and the rhythms of music.

Mamatjan Juma is an artist who was trained in the style of Socialist Realism, in which ideology was paramount. He began questioning this notion and exploring more abstract styles after his move to the United States. Through "snapshots" of his paintings, he shows the development of his style, where beauty, balance, and limitlessness are expressed without the need to stand for an ideology.

Art Follows Life

BY TESSA HECK
@ VOL 4 ON APR 05, 2018

Art can lead all over the place. It has led painter Tessa Heck from the rural to the urban (and back again), from the noncommercial to the monetary, from introspection to examination. Sometimes art is a journey and, as Tessa's story shows, sometimes that journey leads home. And sometimes it's a journey walked in red cowboy boots.
