TO AROUSE THE IMAGINARY IS AN ART IN ITSELF

by Charline Lancel

"To intrigue, to surprise, to entertain by the creation of abstract compositions and the search for perfect shapes in proportion, color, subtlety and simplicity. An eye looking for a pure and elegant line, a distinguished curve, a sensation of purity, a minimalism that is majestic like a white lily. Sun-like whims, white expanses like the snow, lights that illuminate life, because we all need luminous images. A positive attraction. Like a planet which makes your head spin. Universal, intemporal, intergenerational, without prejudice, freedom at all cost. Images which surround us are the inspiration of our happy days. A palette of colors at will. An ability to adapt for the art of love, to create the character of a place without falling in the traps of superficial design. A work of art that is a sensation every morning, a new story to be taken along the way, a road to be traveled hand in hand. A galactic journey, a rest for the mind, a tribal object, a sacred plenitude."

Charline Lancel is an artist photographer, filmmaker and designer. Born in Belgium in 1976, she lives and works in Brussels. She writes:

"Since my early childhood I have had an eye for the beauty of colors and harmony of shapes. After a career in film set design, I decided to focus on my own artistic output. I now devoted myself full time to producing visual art. I hope you like the minimalist and geometrical aspect of my work, informed by the art of Vasarely and Mondrian, but also by pop art and sci-fi universes. It's mathematical art and the calculations are made via computer, but based upon an indexical picture, taken from a real life subject with a digital camera. I do print my work on a combination of traditional photographic paper in between plexiglass plates (diasec), but I do also use the latest technology to imprint my art into the anodic layer of metal surfaces. The result is unlike anything you've seen, and highly durable. I'm self-taught and the works are sold progressively, as they are created."

Since childhood, she has an eye for the beauty of the colors and the harmony of shapes. Her works, created by photomanipulation, are abstract, geometric, minimal linear or spherical. Since 2007 Charline Lancel has created a collection of abstract compositions, digital, bright and colorful.

ART BY ADONIS HALEPIANOS

Photo Art

Adonis Halepianos is a Greek native and citizen. Born and raised in Halepa, an historical neighborhood of Canea, Crete Island, he began to deal with photography from his youth, while practicing his profession of consulting engineer in Greece and abroad.

He is a self-taught amateur photographer.

Today, he continues his passion to experiment with photography art, enjoying the arrival of digitalism, which allowed the photographer to see the world through his imagination and heart, not only through his eyes and lenses. In this presentation, most of his subjects are inspired from landscapes, people, and details of objects describing, in his own sensitivity and way, his country's multiple aspects. His works participated in exhibitions, organized by the Melina Merkouri Gallery Center in Athens, the Cyprus Photographic Society, the Museum of Computer Art in Brooklyn NY and others.

His series of three images Fishing in the Fog is especially intriguing and haunting. Photographing in a cloud or in fog is contra-intuitive because of the lack of light, but Halepianos maximizes the opportunity. His fishermen are wrapped in black and are cyphers. They are at one with the landscape of the fog, the earth, the sky. He has indelibly caught a few moments early in a long day.
