Every Thursday, we welcome a batch of new artists and artwork to UGallery. This blog series highlights our newest artists. The three this week make up a holy trinity of simplicity.
Give a nice “Hello” to Reuben Chircop, Lynn Pollard, and Will Russack. Below is a little bit about their work. If you like what you see, let them know by leaving a comment on their profile pages and welcoming them to UGallery!
Reuben Chircop delivers deeply emotional messages with the click of a camera. His photography explores a range of emotions through a range of subject matters. In search of simplicity, Reuben captures spontaneous moments as quickly as his camera shutter can shut. He hopes his simple compositions will inspire serenity within his viewers.
Lynn Pollard is grateful for indigo. She says, “Indigo is too mysterious and headstrong and spiritual to allow for complete control.” Despite indigo’s stubbornness, Lynn has been able to manipulate this ancient dye into compelling and powerful compositions. She seeks serenity with her subtle layers of deep blue. Since her chosen medium runs heavy with symbolism, Lynn is able to paint truly powerful and royal abstractions.
Take a moment. If Will Russack’s photographs cause you to pause, he has succeeded. Will believes the moments we sit with ourselves to ponder the mundane are the moments we learn the most about ourselves. His photographs make the familiar unfamiliar. As he progresses as an artist, Will continues to turn a simple glance of our surroundings into a long and thoughtful stare.
