Featured Artist | Xuanlin Ye

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.

Featured Artist | Cécile Lobert

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.

Issue 50 Vol 1 Cover Artist

My work as an artist photographer features the world around us viewed in an alternative way, one that seeks out the extraordinary that lies within the ordinary. Parts of the environment by which we are surrounded are often overlooked despite being plainly within our view. I have for many years been inspired by the commonplace object or landscape and the hidden aspects of that subject matter. Without selecting a microcosm of the subject it is still possible to present the viewer with a radically different perspective of the ordinary by drawing their attention to the potential of the subject by virtue of its shape, colour, texture, shadows, juxtaposition or transient condition rendered by human interference.

Featured Artist | Lauren Pretorius

As an oil painter, I focus my attention on the humble everyday objects that we can so easily overlook. I attempt to shed light upon the beauty of the food in our kitchen, the quiet flowers in a vase, and the charming reflections of a simple teapot. I also have an affectionate draw to the humorous and the whimsical. This theme can be seen scattered across my portfolio; cheeky rubber duckies, goldfish in light bulbs and anthropomorphized inanimate objects combined with smooth gradients that play with light and shadow create for a more interesting and fun piece of work. I normally don’t have a solid intention with my works, preferring to display things as they are, but in a different light. I do hope, however, that the simple fusion of humble beauty, tactile softness, and bright energy of these simple objects can bring a smile to someone’s day.
