Welcome to the 42nd online exhibition of the ArtisTTable,
Here & There: Landscapes from Near and There.
The landscape we each enjoy wherever we live is this constantly changing subject that we love to respond to with pencil or paint. Cameras and computers also are tools that bring this vision to all of our eyes in this show.
Reviewing the submissions to any art exhibition is a task not for the faint of heart. We asked the ArtisTTable staff to join in and jury this show. Sometimes it is good to keep it in house and then share our thoughts on what has come in. We thank all the artists, that submitted their work, and thank everyone that worked on putting this show together with us.
It is always a breathtaking exercise to review everyone's rendition of the landscape. So many interpretations, so many solutions. We think you will enjoy this exhibition. - ArtisTTable Staff
The Windy Mountain - Carmel Ben Or
A most important and charming characteristic of landscape painting is the sense we can get that the artist actually was in the very place that we see in the painting. This is one of those. The Windy Mountain is a beautifully painted landscape that is full of atmosphere. Her palette is muted but still gives the impression of a bright day.
Balloons - Ifat Porat
Porat's treatment of the digital media is so painterly that we get a Banksy sort of feel from this sun-drenched image. Landscapes come in all shapes, sizes and moods. This take on the subject is one of our favorites.
Layers - Jackie Gwynne
Vastness is one thing about the landscape that can be breathtaking. This is a rich painterly photo that takes is to distant horizons in an almost abstract way.
Sunset on Tundra - Eline Niemi
Niemi's work is most unique in that is the only submission using antlers as a substrate. Working with the odd shapes that are achieved by slicing the antlers up provides an organic space to create an landscape.
Gratitude to Stil - Moti Yardeni
Yardeni gives us a storybook view of a mountain scene that anything but straightforward. The rich palette of color transports us.
I Asked the Boulders Where They Had Been - Michele Bondurant
The stark rocky wilderness can be inviting as Georgia O'Keeffe proved. This painting creates an environment and space that we just believe that we can understand in some way yet at the same time, it is curious and unfamiliar.
View from Mount Tibor - Zipi Ifat
Few years ago I was on Mount Tibor. I walked with a group of old friends exactly on this path. I can recognize the depth, the depth of the trees that stand diagonally to the hill, colors and atmospheare .In this painting of Zipi I found that lovely place. she managed to bring it back to my memory.
Flowers on the Water - Shir Beck
Probably the best way to digest a piece of art is to go with your gut reaction. That choice can not always easily be explained. I particularly like the fresh approach to this painting. As a visual pleasure I enjoy the colors and how they create clear divisions between the layered division of space that I really appreciate as a painter.
