UGallery releases new art and welcomes new artists to our community every week. We love seeing what each new week will bring. Last week’s new artists were Lucy Bangiyeva, Katherine Gendreau, Lana Greben, and Richard Powell! Read on below to learn a little bit more about their work.
The intersection of travel and photography has been explored by countless photographers. Lucy Bangiyeva joins the intrepid class of artists and travels to document her own life experiences while traveling the world. Lucy says, “Photography is a way for me to capture the moments that are most memorable in my life and relive my experiences of exploring the world.”
Study in Blue
Katherine Gendreau received a BA in Studio Art and English from Wheaton College, where she learned to imbue her art with a literary meaning. For Katherine, fine art photography combines emotion with technique and “is an expression of the artist’s sentiment.” Whether Katherine is attempting to capture the “unseen” or record time with long exposures, she creates photographs that depict a dreamy and sensual snapshot of her life.
By organizing a variety of visual elements onto a single piece of art, Lana Greben is able to focus on the representing images as well as how they are perceived. She approaches art from a didactic and dynamic stance to question the individual and the collective subconscious. Lana says, “To create an image with extended emotional and psychedelic range, and to generate a meaningful viewing experience, I intersect lines, colours and textures in simple yet complex interactions.”
Richard Powell is an avid art collector and painter. He surrounds himself with the things that will inspire his work and does whatever will help him work harder and better. Richard says his images “can arrive full blown or like cookie crumbs spread out on a path before me. I consider each one a gift to materialize to the best of my abilities. If I’ve faithfully transmitted that vision to the viewer, then I consider it a success.” He received a graduate art degree from California State University, Northridge.
