MARINA DUNBAR



“The minimal and reductive photographs conveyed an intrinsic beauty. Taking from their simplicity, I approach my paintings with a sense of restraint; laying down transparent shapes of color and letting the interaction of hues establish a feeling of depth and dynamic motion within each piece.”

VOL. 11.13.2018 | HOLLY ADDI

ABOUT HOLLY ADDI


Salt Lake City-based painter, Holly Addi sees beauty in the imperfect. Her work is based on life’s imperfections and how it relates back to beauty and the magical phenomenon how it all works together. “My art style is ‘composition of imperfectionism’ and how to embrace the wonder, rather than question it; the good, the bad, the evil, the weeds, the flowers, all of it. And at the end, you look at it, and see beauty through it all,” she explains.

Addi’s works examine energy, space, and landscape through tempered abstraction. By applying abstraction, she constructs intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. Often about her audience’s contact with architecture and basic living elements; energy (heat, light, water), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways. By not referencing specific recognizable forms, Addi deconstructs in order to shift meaning and create open interpretation for the viewer.

DEBORAH T COLTER



Deborah T Colter practices fearless trust in her process of creating. She believes a painting needs to have rhythm, balance, harmony, life and a spark of magic. Creating something and seeing it transform into a piece alive with energy is an exciting form of that magic.

COURTNEY J GARRETT



Courtney J. Garrett has created a minimal yet sophisticated approach to capturing inspiring images of storms, rural landscapes, and architectural sketches in her oil paintings and mixed media works. Her emotionally driven colors and shapes translate the intangible and the emotional onto seemingly flat two-dimensional surfaces.

THE SUPER BOWL OF BEEKEEPING



Almond growing in California is a $7.6 billion industry that wouldn’t be possible without the 30 billion bees (and hundreds of human beekeepers) who keep the trees pollinated — and whose very existence is in peril.

VESELA BAKER




“I like switching between wood and paper, watercolor and acrylic. Because I spend so much time in the studio, that helps me to not get stuck. It forces me to see things from a different perspective and breaks my thought process so I can take a fresh approach. Once in a while, I feel like I have to have some more control and need to slow down so I paint realism.” –Vesela Baker

ABOUT LORI COZEN-GELLER



During the art process, Cozen-Geller looks to capture the emotions of the heart and mind and places them into visual form within space. “This process is a kinetic one for me. It is a journey that begins with a feeling, evolves into a powerful emotion and is then transformed into art. By freezing emotions and placing them into concrete form, I can then sit back and view the strength and meaning that now lies within the piece that has materialized as art. “
