Underwater by Eric Zener

adrift_30x40_2007Looking through artist Eric Zener‘s underwater paintings, you start to immediately remember what it feels like to be immersed in cool, clear water. That moment when the world’s worries wash away and a sense of calmness overtakes your body. Zener calls that shared feeling our “quest for refuge and peace beneath the chaos of life.”

Not Asleep by Ann Keel

4_16I began to photograph in 2009, I didn’t have a DSLR camera at that time so I used my webcam. The first photo-manipulations I ever did were made with it. Then I bought a Canon 450D, which I sold a few months ago. I started to photograph because I realized that I could use this media as a language, same way as I use painting or drawing. I already used those mediums, but I still had a lot to express. So much! What I especially liked about photography is the way I could express things quickly. Painting takes much more time, even sometimes I work on pictures as I work on canvas. Ann Keel

“When I began painting the human body, I was obsessed with it and needed to create as much realism as possible. I chased realism until it began to unravel and deconstruct itself,” Alyssa states, “I am exploring the possibility and potential where representational painting and abstraction meet – if both can coexist in the same moment.” Alyssa Monks
