Every Thursday, we welcome a batch of new artists and artwork to UGallery. This series of blog posts highlights each week’s new artists. The two this week follow their passions, which is the key to good art.
Our new artists are Emilia Arana and Cristina Sciarra. Read on below to learn more about each of them. Leave them a nice comment on their profile pages to welcome them to UGallery!
Emilia Arana. Tucson, Arizona
Emilia Arana delivers refreshing work to the landscape of abstract art. Swelling from scrapes of dark purple and green, Emilia’s emotions build into the thick clouds of color suspended on the canvas. Emilia takes elements from her challenges, doubts, and accomplishments to create omnipresent and intuitive pieces that promise relief from arid abstractions.
Cristina Sciarra. Brooklyn, NY
Sprinkle a pinch of color. Add a dash of composition. Mix until fully combined and you have a Cristina Sciarra photograph. With the right amount of light and texture, Cristina captures the essence of her current passion: creating and cooking recipes. Feast your eyes on food photography that tells the perfect tale of preparation and artistic prowess with a still life from Cristina smorgasbord of wholesome photo shoots.
Greetings Art Lovers,
Do you find yourself edging past the doughnut display when getting a morning cuppa joe? Justin Wheeler makes the sweet, decadent smell of chocolate glaze and sugary sprinkles attainable (and guilt-free) with his doughnut series.
Justin’s experience as a commercial food photographer and his passion for all things edible give him the artistic substance needed for tangible and glamorous food shots.
He succeeds in his goal to “show the most stereotypical ‘naughty,’ no frills, down and dirty doughnuts in all their sinful glory.” There are no sugar substitutes in Justin Wheeler’s photographs. He says, “I start with the best possible looking food for the shoot, take my time styling it, and use ‘stand in’s’ for lighting and composition purposes.”
