A brief biography of each artist is at the bottom of the page.

 

AP – An artist proof print has a connection to limited edition prints. It is commonly known as a copy of the photograph and is not a part of the numbered edition. These prints are used as a test print by the artist and kept for their personal collection.

TP – A trial proof is a print that is pulled before the edition to see what it looks like at that stage of development. There can be any number of trial proofs, but each print was different. This was the stage where the artist and printmaker correct the image prior to the A/P

PP – Printer’s proof is a proof that is used to validate the work. As proof of their work, they are prints or objects that are acquired by manufacturers and printers. They are made in addition to the original edition and are neither intended for sale nor counted in the edition count.

Mihail Chemiakin (1943-, Moscow) An accomplished painter, stage designer, sculptor and publisher Chemiakin was born in the USSR.  His non-conformist works led him into conflict with the Soviet government.  He was subjected to mandatory psychiatric treatment for having ideals that did not conform to those of the Soviet Union.   Exiled in 1971, he settled in Paris where he produced his “Carnival at St. Petersburg” series in the traditional Russian Style.

 

Michael Godard (1963 –) A native southern Californian, Michael Godard determined to  “learn all the rules, and then break them.”  While spending long hours at the hospital when his daughter was in a coma, he started a series bringing olives to life in a variety of humorous images.  His efforts made him popular with celebrities and in demand on television.

 

Daniel Jean-Baptiste (St. Lucia, Caribbean) Inspired by his island home and childhood spent fishing, he urges us to take a moment to notice the colors and dancing light the next time we go fishing.

 

Martiros Manoukian (1947-, Armenia) His colors combine mood and movement. Some works reflect something of antiquity in his homeland – reflections of centuries-old icons of Russian Orthodoxy.  Others express contemporary images.  All celebrate love of life and freedom.

 

Lucelle Raad (1942-, Great Britain).  Primary subjects are children, focusing especially how they play and communicate with each other.  Her imagery allows the viewer a peek into the lives of children at their most subtle and enriching moments.  Her colors are vibrant, harmonious, and atmospheric with an impressionistic character.

 

Tiefeng Jiang (1938- ) was born in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province in China. He began exploring the arts as a small child. In 1964, he graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.  Jiang’s universal themes compose of love, strength, and emotion understood and recognized by all. The message his art transposes is the bonds of harmony and peace that all things living should practice daily to achieve.

 

 

Jack Black (deceased 2002) was a famous Navajo artist from Sedona, Arizona . His work is known for pure and simplicity of line. Each piece began by drawing a sketch and then taking raw clay to create the original sculpture from which production molds were formed. The figures were then cast, sanded, detailed, fired to bisque and then glazed and refired. This entire process was done by hand, making each sculpture different and unique.
