Elegant Adaptations In Oil
BY DAVID VICKERY
@ VOL 20
ON JAN 31, 2014
David Vickery is a resident of Cushing, where he has been working for the past 23 years, finding inspiration in local scenes and creating oil paintings with an eye for the imperfect, quirky, and sometimes elegant adaptations we’ve made in order to live here. His process is to carry a camera wherever he goes and photograph any scene that moves him, then contemplate and carefully re-compose the photo in the studio and paint it.

@ VOL 14
ON MAY 19, 2015
Kunstenaar Andre Frank van Putten volgde zijn opleiding aan de Rietveld Academie te Amsterdam. Zijn eerste schilderijen waren simpel van beeld en concept. Duidelijk van vorm en kleur. Gedurende zijn carriere is hij meer gaan experimenteren. In zijn project Loupcke, een verhaal over een wolvenfamilie, wisselen realiteit en illusie elkaar af.

@ VOL 1
ON JAN 27, 2018
In her presentation, Seyhr Qayum shares her current studio practice and the concepts that inform her art-making decisions.
Conceptually, Seyhr's art is largely about cross-cultural exchange, and her perception of the differences between liberal and conservative societies. She combines representational portraiture and figurative illustrations, with elements of abstraction.
The idea of women empowerment is a focus in Seyhr's artworks. She has seen both the liberal and conservative side of life, and therefore has a fair idea of what it means to be a woman in both these worlds. All her work portrays Pakistani women as strong, empowered members of the society rather than stale and stereotypical illustrations. Her life-sized paintings of empowered female figures, such as ‘Here’s Looking at You, Kid,’ where a woman boldly stares back at you, encapsulate the idea of showing Pakistani women as strong and capable rather than submissive or troubled beings.

Painting with Light
Although not from last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo, we continue to celebrate creativity this week by highlighting a great presentation every day, today turning our attention to "Painting with Light" from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10. Photographer Mateusz Staniewski presents a selection of light works and a series of incredible images that were all created without any use of Photoshop. In the presentation, he shares various techniques on how to paint with light.
Light Painting in Osnabrueck
Shown at Osnabrueck's PechaKucha Night Vol. 6 earlier this year, the photos included in this post are part of some "light painting" work by Christoph Abé and Kai Bornemann. PKN Osnabrueck organizer Clemens Gruber has sent us some text in German to accompany the photos, but do note that all of them do not use any Photoshop trickery. Wenn die von den Eltern vermittelten Werte bei ihren erwachsenen Kindern manch roten Leitfaden darstellen, welcher sicher durch die Gesellschaft führt, dann darf man als Papa und als Mama gleichermaßen stolz sein. Denn diese Werte, dieser Anstand und diese Bildung sind das Ergebnis einer langen Reise, welche durch mehrere Generationen führt. Kennst du die Stille im Lärm, welche dich im Alltag umgibt und die du als unangenehm wahrnimmst, da immer um dich herum etwas passieren muß?! Genieß diese kleine Insel und nutze sie zum Durchatmen ... sie ist dein Erholungsort im Dschungel der Hektik. An was glaubst du, wenn du an das Wort „GLAUBE“ denkst? An was denkst du, wenn du an das Wort „Nachdenken“ glaubst? Glaubst du, dass du WIRKLICH die Fähigkeit der Reflexion besitzt? Oder glaubst du nicht eher doch an den Spiegel, den du dir selber vorhälst, damit du nicht weiter Nachdenken musst, wer du WIRLICH bist? Das Licht am Ende eines Tunnels ist in vielerlei Hinsicht interpretierbar: Man kann es als Neuanfang sehen, als helfende Hand, als wärmenden Sonnenschein im tristen Alltag oder einfach nur als das, was es ist: Die Helligkeit, welche uns immer wieder lächeln lässt, welche uns gerne an das erinnern lässt, wofür es sich zu Leben lohnt: die Einmaligkeit von besonderen, hellen Momenten! Unverdaute Vertrautheit gleicht einer unverbrauchten Seele: Naiv, flügelspreizend und ohne jegliche Bedenken dem Risiko begegnend, welches einem in Form von angeblich abgeklärten Menschen ins offene Messer rennen lässt.
Painting with Light
Light painting isn't a new art form by any stretch, but recently it's been revitalized and enhanced by the DIY community. In today's edition of Presentation of the Day, we see the extent to which the medium has grown. In his presentation (from PKN Barcelona Vol. 10) Mateusz Staniewski enlightens us on the finer details of the photographic art. The techniques he goes into include light-stenciling, freezing, and painting; when combining these methods the results are both literally and figuratively luminous. There's much more to be seen than said here, so for further illumination check out the full presentation.
Poster for PKN Knoxville Vol. 9
Beth Meadows is a talented local artist who is well known for her creative abstractions of found objects, architectural spaces, and historic structures. She volunteered her time to design the poster for Knoxville's 9th Pecha Kucha and for that we are grateful! She choose this painting for the poster for the architectural qualities and proportion of the space - perfect for the integration of PKN into Architecture Week! The couple [and their cats] are taking time from thier busy schedules to sit quietly and listen. Sometimes PKN can get a little rowdy but the reason we all attend is to listen to a passionate community member share thier craft with us. It is an inspiring evening of reflection and gratitde. Beth Meadows graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BFA in Studio Art in 2007. She has lived and worked in Knoxville since then and currently manages The Salvage Room for the non-profit Knox Heritage, receiving and selling historic building materials. She is also the Director, as well as an artist, of 17th Street Studios, a work space for thirteen artists near downtown Knoxville. To view more of her work visit her site http://withbearhands.com/
If you've ever wanted to see the inside of an artist's mind, this is a great way to do it. Bob Richardson shares his unique mode of painting using a grid-system, and in "Systemic Painting" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19 explains how his art style has changed over the years. He uses a variety of mediums, including canvas, silk screen, and watercolor paper. After retirement, Bob revisited his systemic painting method and experimented with new compositions and brush widths to create effective pieces of art.
“I have a very strange, particular method of painting. I call this method intuitive surrealism.” In Intuitive Surrealism from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 136, Barcelona-based artist, August Vilella shares his oil paintings, creatied by means of a surreal-intuitive method. Thanks to this method and without using any previous sketches or ideas, he tries to give shape to his past and future through the subconscious mind. As a figurative work of art, the result of this practice evokes a dreamlike aura and philosophical language, which invites the observing visitor to reflect.
