Style File: Chapter 3

Welcome to the 5th edition of The Pulse -- The State of the Art -- a survey in words and pictures of the online artist community. The Pulse is a collaborative project that aims to introduce you to new artists, help you get to know familiar faces even more, and allow you access into the creative hearts and minds of a very talented crew of individuals. More than 130 artists have answered a series of questions which make up The Pulse. Their responses will be presented in a series of online posts. 

To start things off with a bang, postings from The Pulse have run since Saturday. Regular weekly postings begin on Sunday July 10th and will continue every Sunday thereafter. 


To celebrate the start of the 5th edition, every person who leaves a comment on any of the first three postings will be eligible to win a copy of 'The Pulse - The Zine' from 2008, which is now out of print and unavailable. Comments close on Saturday July 9th and the winner will be announced on Sunday July 10th.

Style File is the 1st of 6 projects from The Pulse. Participants were asked: How would you describe your artistic style?

Dorothy Simpson Krause

My work is usually done in series, responding to some issue that I'm exploring using a wide variety of media. My latest series, "Visions", references the poem "Kubla Kahn"in which Coleridge describes a savage place, with holy and enchanted caverns, wall, towers and a sacred river where "The shadow of the dome of pleasure floated midway on the waves." These haunting images of submerged architectural passageways, lit from within, reflect the branches of trees and illuminate floating leaves and flowers. This image, Holy and Enchanted, exists both as a lenticular print and as a monoprint on fresco.
Julie Prichard

I love things that look dirty and worn...abstract. Aged like they have been around for years. (Oil Slick, 2011)
Kathryn Dyche Dechairo

If I had to describe my artistic style it would be textured art paintings which combine a modern aesthetic with my love of nature. Texture has always been key to me so it seemed natural to incorporate a textural element within my work. I try to create pieces that make me want to touch them so when they evoke the same reaction in someone else it makes my heart soar.
Dayna J. Collins

I am a lover of bright, bold colors, texture, layers, and mark-making. I love painting, collage, assemblage, and working with metal; I especially love combining a bit of everything together. I am truly a mixed-media artist. (Justify)
dorit Elisha

My artistic style, which is visible also in my home decor and the way I dress, is an "eclectic Bohemian mix of material, color and texture". I am an avid collector of stuff, and my art tends to be busy as well.
Eric Adama

Lyrical Abstraction. (Passage. The journey is the destination)
Martha Marshall

My style is abstract, intuitive, and is based on my immediate responses to the piece as it develops.  The minute I start to let my left brain get in the way of my work, I might as well leave the studio and do something else for the rest of the day. Here is a painting that I think shows how I work. (Ritual 23)
Patti Edmon

My 'style' is entirely intuitive...with a history of writing and photography but no inherent drawing skills, mixed-media collage - with an emphasis on detail and texture - is my M.O.
Donna Joy

Is there a term for rust-loving, shabby, vintage with occasional humor thrown in?
Angela Cartwright

Unruly...but not in a bad sense. The most destructive thing in art is to be paralyzed by the way your brain tells you something should look. Listen instead to your gut and let the should's and the must's not get in the way of the muse. I've included the mixed media piece 'Clarity' - a melange of where my art is right now.

Next 'Artistic Style' will be posted Sunday, July 10th.
