UGallery releases new art and welcomes new artists to our community every week. We love seeing what each new week will bring. This week’s newest artist are Amna Mehmood, Mike Kaplan, Tricia May and Karen Darling! Read on below to learn a little bit more about her work.

Amna Mehmood. San Jose, California.

Amna Mehmood creates stories of fictional characters living in fictional worlds. Her photographs tell tales that go beyond the models and the settings she shoots. Amna hopes to create secret worlds and stories for people to enjoy. She says, “one can just sit, staring at a photograph, lost in the worlds that exist inside it.

Mike Kaplan. Sedgefield, Western Cape.

Mike Kaplan developed his eye for landscapes while studying graphic design in London. His fascination with William Turner’s ability to capture the movement of water motivated him to take his design eye to rivers and oceans with a camera in hand. By snapping long-exposure shots at sunrise and sunset, Mike Kaplan develops his own mastery of the flowing quality of a seascape.

Tricia May. Boise, Idaho.

Tricia May looks to the philosophy of yin and yang to drive her balanced compositions. With Mother Nature as a guiding force for her art, Tricia takes oil to canvas to depict the play of warm and cool colors found in landscapes, flowers, and the sky. Tricia May founded the Plein Air Painters of Idaho and is a member of Oil Painters of America.

Karen Darling. Brampton, Canada

Trained as an illustrator, Karen Darling has learned to capture the human form in all its essence. Her female forms seem to dance across the canvas. Despite a love for abstractions, Karen keeps enough of her understanding of the body to develop a clear and stylistic approach to the figure.
