Photo of Anne Katrine Senstad

Anne Katrine Senstad was raised in Singapore and Norway, today she lives and works between New York and Oslo, Norway. She received her art education at Parsons School of Design and The New School for Social Research in New York 1994 and 1999. Senstad’s practice lies in the multi disciplinary intersections of installation art, photography, video, neon sculpture, immersive installation, landart and site specificity, with a focus on the phenomena of perception and the cognitive system in response to the properties of light, sound and color. Senstad is concerned with sensorial aesthetics, perception and the transformative, – the transcendental ideas of art and philosophical practices. Through advanced in depth research she has examined spatial, topological and scientific phenomena of light, sound and color since the mid 1990’s, a foundation for her explorations in the experiential, participatory and experimental. In her ongoing field work, she engages in cultural, social and political interactions through active, organic and personal involvement for a wider educational and collaborative platform between diverse ideologies, developing a new folklore and amalgamation between post-modern individualism and internationalism. Senstad created the central public art work for The Wolfe Center for the Arts at BGSU in Bowling Green, OH that opened in 2010, and designed by Snohetta Architects.

Adrian Sibley Profile

I paint to put the viewer of my work in a different frame of consciousness. My ultimate goal is to open your subconscious. If my abstract forms can make you feel slightly uneasy my “magic” is doing it’s job. When I name my pieces several ideas come to mind. Most of it is music, all of it is color, quite a bit is pain/illness and a portion is hurt.…

Scott creates paintings that have been coined “Masters Mash Ups”. For a “Master’s Mash Up”, Scott combines elements inspired by artworks created by master artists, and then he adds his own creativity, resulting in a unique and original artwork. Colorful, playful and entertaining, his paintings reveal a magical mashed up world that bursts onto the surface with unique fervor. Sometimes Scott’s “Master’s Mash Ups” pay clever homage to the artworks that brought him inspiration, and sometimes you can barely see any tangential references. Regardless of his approach, however, the unique character of his own creativity emerges and makes the artwork clearly his own.

I have been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. When I was a child of 8, my family emigrated from Germany at the beginning of WWII.

Photo of Jeffrey M. Smith

I grew up in Dayton, flew with the USAF and retired to Dayton where I pursue landscape photography. I chase sunsets/twilights. I also create images using Evidence-based design (EBD) principles. EBD is an approach where researchers realized that people feel relaxed, heal faster, and become more productive when surrounded by certain calming images of nature. I hope these vibrant prints bring you a few moments of peace and solitude.
