New York October 7,1831
by Irena Orlov
New collection “The Link of Times. Contemporary Abstract with a touch of Antique.” The unique material that I use - Original Rare Antique Newspapers printed in 17th, 18th century. Mixed Media 24x24” on canvas. Contemporary Abstract with a touch of Antique. Unique Collage Painting created with Original Rare Antique Newspaper printed in 1831, New York, acrylic and oil. World of color, textures and shapes. Newspapers have their own history as if they are mirrors of human mode of that time. They are unbiased chroniclers of the era they come from. Most of the newspapers belong to 17-19th century. Im thrilled when I touch pieces of the newspapers because I touch frozen moments of past centuries. I feel breath of life at this moment. I cant describe my emotions when I hold torn yellowish newspaper in my arms, its like as if there is a connection between me and a person who used to hold the same newspaper in his or her hands centuries ago. Newspapers can tell a lot of interesting stories from the past. My imagination explodes picturing moment of that everyday life. Time flied, babies were born, they grew and became adults. After they found their happiness and completed their missions, they died leaving behind something tangible newspapers. I cant be indifferent reading these newspapers. There is a invisible spiritual bridge between past and future cultures that crosses time lines. This energy and ideas behind these newspapers charge me. It pushes me to create new art structures new art pieces. In other words, I transform these old ideas and antique media into a new concept, new language to express new ideas and thoughts. ART REVIEW BY DE NAVARRO This piece certainly captures the heart and soul of old New York. The waterfront is the first thing that grabs me in this remarkable painting leaving me with a sense of awe and peace. The city poised on the waterfront has both depth and height led by the tall black building in the front which seems prominent in its importance. The master stroke is the backdrop of the newspaper which bleeds through in strategic places to add a rich sense of history. I feel a grand and proud city, the name boldly displayed in the newspaper backdrop in antique engraved print. The colors and textures mix with a great sensibility and the lines in the water reflect industrial might. This painting embodies so much within its impressions and abstractions and is so well pleasing to the eye that it is instantly one of my favorites of Irena Orlov.

Texas Bradford Pear Natural Edged Wood Bowl
by Bryan Tyler Nelson
Natural edged wood bowl turned on a wood lathe by Texas Artist Bryan Tyler Nelson. This bowls is turned from a green half log of Bradford Pear. After roughing out a bowl shape the rough bowl is then dried for 2-10 months or more, it depends on the size. The bowl once dried is remounted on the lathe and returned. The bowl is finished with a friction polish while still on the lathe. Each of my bowls are signed, numbered and dated (year) on the bottom. Bradford Pear is a tree used a lot in Texas landscaping. The tree does have a big flaw, it has a tendency to branch out at one spot from the trunk. which makes it very weak and prone to wind and storm damage. That’s what happened to this tree. A little history…. Callery pear is native to China; in 1918 seed was brought to the United States for potential use as rootstock for cultivated pears. Of the initial batch of 100 pounds of seed that was planted at the Plant Introduction Station at Glen Dale, Maryland , one vigorous, non-spiny seedling was selected and named “Bradford”. The spread of callery pear along roadsides, rights-of-way, and in successional old fields was first noticed in southern Maryland and around Washington, DC. In Pennsylvania naturalized populations are known in Bucks and Montgomery Counties. Naturalized populations generally exhibit characteristics of the species including wide-spreading branches and thorniness. Fruit size may vary from inch to nearly 1 inch in diameter.

Swim with me
by Susan Clifton
In 2011 I received a grant to create a series of paintings and a video installation for a two week showing. The show was called Art Aquatic. I was inspired by my husbands underwater video. The sea life seem to be very curious about him and his friends. They would come right up to his video camera. This sea turtle is looking at the viewer and is saying who are you, swim with me. I used the fabric mosaic to show movement in the water. The fabric was printed with my inkjet printer. I used an image of water from an old painting I did a few years before. This series is painted on wood. The turtle is a birch wood box painted with black gesso and a texture has been added. The box is 2” deep.

Vanishing City
by Barbara Krupp
I have been painting and selling for 36 years. I have painted in oil, watercolor, acrylic, and now 2d mixed media. I combine all my knowledge of skills in each medium I have formally used. I have added oil stick and pastels. I am an expert in colors. My combination of knowledge and the spirit of the true artist have made my paintings outstanding in their field. I am at the level where I know what the paints will do and I finish with feelings. People from all walks of life view my pieces and feel happiness, joy, or some ethereal feeling that cannot be described. The value of my paintings continues to escalate. Be sure to read my bio and watch my u tube video of me painting in my studio. If you have been thinking of purchasing one of my paintings, the time is now. I have sizes that begin at 30″x30″ and up to, or could excess 6 feet x 14 feet which is the largest I have painted. I am looking forward to having one of my paintings in your home, office, hotel or corporate space.
