As an Artist I have always wanted to express the beauty of our African heritage. My paintings are an extension of the classic form of figurative painting using people of color.
Most of my paintings make statements on culture and the human condition. My challenges in creativity continue to evolve, the reason for this is evident in the many events in the times we live in and through.

Artistically, I task myself with finding a new genre of visual expression that is representative of the contemporary Asian geopolitical psyche without the influence of Western stereotypes.The two main strands of my work include taking the imagery of traditional Asian tropes and questioning it on the canvas in a humorous or insouciant way through physical manipulation of paint. The second strand involves extensive research comparing contemporary popular images relating to classical Asian culture and classical Chinese paintings. I believe classical Chinese culture and art are formed with a particular state of consciousness that brings us a unique aesthetic experience that in its essence is also a philosophical state of being.I attempt to use the re-presentations of the classical sensibility to create images that generate a moment of absorption in which we can reflect on our shared state of being. This image is dualistic and reciprocal in nature, the lineage and the state of the image are constant and eternal, but as the receiver of the image, the audience is constantly changing and reflective. Within these dualistic relationships, we reflect upon our state of being.Read More Featured Artist | Xuanlin Ye
Cecile Lobert’s compositions offer snapshots of a non-verbal and neurodiverse artist’s abstract expressionist reactions to every day, existential experiences. Her works document the silent and persistent dialogue between Lobert’s internal soul and the external stimuli of her physical and emotional environments resulting in a raw and unfiltered glimpse at consciousness lain completely bare. An outsider to societal imprints and to the ability to devise, strategize, or premeditate, her art arrives from a pure and unadulterated space of the absolute present, offering a window into a human consciousness physiologically free from what is considered normative. Challenging us to empathize with our own “bare consciousness” or inherent “true self,” untouched by individual history, social, educational or cultural upbringing, Lobert highlights who we may truly be without the conditioning we continuously undergo. Her extraordinary condition in tandem with her consistently vital, prolific output makes her work truly unique, in a category of its own—sui generis—as much of a phenomenon as it is art.Read More Featured Artist | Cécile Lobert
