Style File: Chapter 5

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 which will run every Sunday. 

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

Minimalist and textural. I like to see how much of a story I can tell or emotion that can be evoked using the least amount of lines and colors.
Denise Aumick

Organic evolutions! Textures, antiquities, ancient, relics, layers, of the earth mixed with a hint of new, shiny and bright.
David Hayes

Exploratory. I'm still finding out who I am as an artist...and what my voice will be. I'm constantly trying out different methods, different materials, different themes...never content to stay with one for too long. I know I'm not a 'realist'...probably more of an 'abstract expressionist' but I'm not even sure about that. So I think I will stick with 'Exploratist.' (Hey, maybe I'll start a new 'movement'!) 'Mind's Eye' was created over a recycled canvas...I believe there are two other paintings underneath...where I just started adding one layer after another...not quite certain of the outcome. A little of this...a little of that...letting each layer suggest to me what would be next. Exploratory...
Jane Royal

Accurate likeness yet not photorealistic, spontaneous and a bit 'unfinished' (as opposed to overworked). Full of emotion and imperfection.
Paula Art

I would describe my artistic style as letting the wabi sabi of industrial debitage find a new life.
Bleubeard and Elizabeth

I would have to say that my art is eclectic. I can't seem to find a single style I prefer. But one thing is evident from this nature inspired piece (School of Velocity), I don't do 'cute.'
Amy Duncan

My style definitely has a vintage vibe to it - not only do I use a lot of vintage ephemera in my work, but my photographs (which I incorporate into many of my pieces) have a vintage focus to them. I like to build layer upon layer, telling a story in the process. Strong graphic images appeal to me - thus the constant array of numbers, letters and words in my work.
Mary Beth Shaw

Sometimes I feel like I have a split personality because I vacillate between painting very loose wet in wet into tightly managed mark making and word play, often within the same pieces. I also either work with representational collage or in the abstract. The common ground in all my work is color and layers; I tend to paint in similar palettes, and no matter what my style I incorporate many layers. When I teach, I think my students are often surprised to learn just how many layers I create before I consider a painting done.
Diana Trout

Three words I'd use to describe my artwork: whimsical, allegorical, realism. Using paint, paper, stitch and various drawing materials, I create an 'other' world with my artwork where people (or citizens) live in the glorious mess of life. I've been playing with crayons and watercolors lately in my journal ('Crayola House'). Eventually these pieces will become larger works.

Next 'Artistic Style' will be posted Sunday, July 24th.
