Each creation represents the presence of a sculpture-like feature of its own natural origin

Art Form: Sculpture
Artist's Statement: As an artist creates a spiritual existence upon nature’s canvas, Felix brings to life his subject matter from within the artistic realm and paints and carves upon natural stone. Each creation represents the presence of a sculpture-like feature of its own natural origin, allowing each image to have complete authenticity. Felix has developed a variety of methods to produce his own style of art. He is inspired and encouraged to pursue his interests in Native American Indian portraiture and wildlife. While using the natural contours/fractures mineral stains and fossil-like attributes, which each stone provides he thus creates his one-of-a-kind paintings or sculptures. Felix Saez, a self taught artist, was born in Bingham Canyon, Utah. He currently resides in Park City, Utah.

A World Without People

Art Form: Photography
Artist's Statement:

I've never been comfortable explaining what I do. From a practical viewpoint, most photography is art of one kind or another, which makes me an artist, and my job as an artist is to be authentic in presenting my vision of the world and my emotional reaction to it. From a philosophical point of view, there is a great body of thought which maintains that objective reality does not exist, and any claim that one perception is more real than another is inherenty false. Furthermore, it is the task of the observer, not the artist, to understand these viewpoints and place the art in this context. In other words, I don't have to explain myself.

Stone is used to represent other natural subjects that share the stones' color, pattern, and texture

Art Form: Sculpture
Artist's Statement: A beautiful mountain trout freed from Verdi Fire granite, clouds envisioned in polished marble, and other natural subjects are the themes of David Cornwell's stone art. Using his training as a stained glass artist, he has discovered a way to cut and shape the granite, marble, onyx, and stone tiles to create images we see in nature. Stones are selected by their unique color, pattern, and texture to produce a palette as distinctive as a painter's colors. Meticulous cutting and fitting turns the pieces into natural subjects that share the stones' character.

Creativity is the highest form of intellegence

Art Form: Painting
Artist's Statement: I love rich, vibrant colors, and the organic shapes in nature. I love having fun with different patterns. I love twisting reality just enough to make the real unreal. Many of the paintings are of the scenery in and about Park City and Summit County. When I take a walk in a natural setting I 'see' the painting before I paint it. My paintings take a long time to produce but I enjoy the process. It's not a race. I know when I'm finished with a painting when I love it.
Beeswax based paint is a versatile and dimensional medium. I have embedded a variety of materials into the wax including coins, leaves, paper, metal, beads, wire, paper and fiber. These paintings are highly textured and full of fun detail.

I've called Park City home since 2014. My inspiration is born from Utah's diverse landscape.

Art Form: Painting
Artist's Statement:

Welcome to a western landscape so wondrous and vast, it could swallow you. When it spits you back out, you might just become something. New.

There’s freedom in isolation. Alone in the mountains, there’s excitement for the unknown, and fear for the forces we cannot control.

What makes you an artist?

A decision.

Like leaving the trail.

Leaving the group.

Fleeing the comforts of the city, to enter the wilderness.

 

Sometimes, the only thing to fill that echoing void of self-doubt is an infinite blue horizon, a craggy ridgeline or a wildflower pressing through ice and stone. The resilience of the natural world can give fire to our most absurd dreams.

 

May my paintings make you feel small in a world full of mystery.

 

 

 

The spirit that first called humans to pioneered these unforgiving lands is still alive. In the West of our hearts, there’s a distant cry telling you how to get to where you’re going. Bravery waits for those who venture far from the familiar.

 

On the edge of the American West.

Where the lone roam free— is where I want to always be.

A world that exceeds the imagination and delights the eye

Art Form: Sculpture
Artist's Statement: Metal Sculpltor Zafod Beatlebrox says his ideas come from looking at things differently and deeply. His early scientific and mechanical career satisfied a craving to make things, but art satisfied his urge to create things. He works with clients to build a world that exceeds the imagination and delights the eye. Yet everything must be functional in order to make him happy. Zafod (pronounced ZAY-fahd) has lived near Park City for 25 years on the Aztec Art Ranch where he has his workshop. He has exhibited in Salt Lake and Park City, is a member of the Park City Professional Artist's Association and has taken performance and visual art to the Burning Man Art Festival. He lives with his wife Lola, two dogs, a cat and four llamas in Brown's Canyon, Peoa.
Zafod works in metal, concrete, stone, tile, and other media. To work with a client, he first consults about the client's desires to find a design that suits their needs. This consultation is free of charge. If the client wants to proceed, a consultation fee is charged to create artist’s rendering(s) of concept proposal(s) which are then presented in a meeting to discuss and refine the ideas. If the client wishes to proceed, a budget is presented for final design and implementation. Zafod has 30 years of experience in construction, including home building, furniture-building, metal working, and concrete slab installation. He can work with plumbing, heating, lighting, electrical and other systems. He also subcontracts with experts in those areas. A final contract is drawn up to specify the work that will be performed, installation schedules, and pricing for labor and materials.

Ceramic pieces inspired by the natural world around me and reflecting my interest in geology, anthropology, science and the humanities

Art Form: Ceramics
Artist's Statement:

My ceramic pieces are inspired by the natural world around me and reflect my interest in geology, anthropology, science and the humanities as well as my need to create. The tactile nature of clay allows me to experience the pieces as I make them. Until the final kiln firing (usually to 2300* F), clay is constantly changing. It has the ability to mold and form in unlimited ways and can also be fragile and solid in its' drier stages. I am constantly challenged to create new forms with complex surfaces and this keeps me engaged and progressing. Pieces with multiple forms reflect how people (and I) relate to others. It is important to have a balance in these pieces and they are probably an attempt to find harmony in a sometimes crazy world. High fire stoneware and porcelain clays are used to form these pieces using both the potter's wheel and hand building. The layering of surface textures and design is something that calls for special attention and a lot of thought goes into this step. Surfaces designs may include embossing, carving, painting, glazing, stretching, and burnishing by themselves or combined for desired effects.

Hardwood, driftwood, and other wood knots become creative objects to complement the stones

Art Form: Jewelry
Artist's Statement: The jewelry-making process is quite time consuming, taking over TWO YEARS to complete! First the roots are dug up, the smaller branches are cut off, the dirt is washed off, and then they are stacked to dry outside in the dry western climate for two years. This allows the bark to fall away, leaving the hard root wood begging to be worked with. The wood is thoroughly cleaned and sanded, and stones are chosen to complement the wood. Found hardwood, driftwood, and other wood knots become creative objects as well. The wood is either left with a natural colored finish or highlighted in varying wood tone stains to complement the stones. The wood receives three to five coats of a protective water-based or polyurethane finish, with sanding between coats. The gemstones, beads, and chains are all connected together to form the interesting one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry ready for you to wear. Please enjoy! `

CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPE/ WATERSCAPES

Nature is the inspiration behind many of my paintings, and always a place that rejuvenates my spirit.  I love painting in Plein Air, and use what I learn from the small sketches and photographs I take to create my abstracts.  I love to delve deeper into what is behind a pretty landscape, and what images and memories it conjures up when you view my paintings.  I want my viewer to say, “ that painting reminds me of…”   Many times I start a painting not knowing exactly where it'll take me, so I let go of the plan and let it take me where it wants to go.   I believe in "Less is more"  it makes a much more interesting painting.  So have a look, I hope it inspires you to see the beauty we are surrounded by!

Art, writing, and teaching that foster environmental awareness and ecological consciousness.

Art Form: Painting
Artist's Statement: THE PHILOSOPHY: An indication of an aware and responsible society is its concern for vulnerable and aesthetic values. Wildness, wildlife, and wilderness are such values, and their appreciation and preservation are ecologically and culturally significant aspects of current affairs. Montague's activities in art, writing, and university teaching have centered ultimately on fostering environmental awareness and ecological consciousness. The foundation of his artwork is the ink image-- usually in the form of a carefully rendered pen-and-ink drawing or a hand-lettered paragraph. His goal, in this fast-paced, quickly changing, more complicated world, is to offer a revitalizing link to our ecological context-- Nature. THE DRAWINGS: The endangered tradition of creating images in ink with pen is a discipline of many demands. The medium, in all its black and white starkness, requires much, and there is little room for error. Furthermore, the artist states, "The greatest challenge is producing the effects of form, space, texture, and color merely by making black marks on white paper." Montague accomplishes these feats by painstakingly deliberate stippling and intricate cross-hatching. Some drawings have taken more than 200 hours to complete. The plants and animals come alive, and the habitats grow in space and detail as each ink dot and line is applied. The finished work becomes a window to the natural world. THE LIMITED EDITION PRINTS: Fred Montague prints most of his editions on a 1913 Golding hand-fed, platen letterpress. He prints some of his drawings from engraved plates. He learned printing by doing it-- after a printer-friend in Indiana gave him a vintage press. Montague moved the massive cast iron antique to his Utah studio from his Indiana studio in 1992. Printing is an interesting craft, and few people who create their own ink drawings print them on letterpress presses. The interplay between paper texture, ink density, image detail, and image pattern all come together as the large balance wheel spins and the platen holding the paper closes against the inked plate. The resulting embossed impression, almost carving-like, literally adds another dimension to the graphic work. He also uses this printing press to print his limited-edition woodcuts. He carves the woodcut masters from maple blanks that he modifies to fit the printing press.

Photos of wildlife and the geometric patterns that can be found in the natural world.

Art Form: Photography
Artist's Statement:

A love of Nature has always been an important part of Ginny Coombs' life. She notices the rhythmic patterns that can be found in a brook or the detailed markings on individual wild animals or birds. Ginny has developed a keen eye for the subtleties of what she sees and shares with the viewer an appreciation of the displayed scene with an expanded viewpoint. Whether Ginny is sketching or doing photograph work, she looks for the revealing patterns of light and dark. She captures the scene with a photographic composition that is visually balanced. The main ingredient for successful photographs is to just 'get out there', not mind inclement weather and be observant of the artistic opportunities whether it is a vast expanse of unending scenery or a small plant with its subtle beauty that catches the viewer's attention.

Pushing the colors and textures in my art rather than portraying them exactly as they exist in reality

Art Form: Painting
Artist's Statement:

Linda says about her art, “I like to concentrate on the interaction of color. Whether I am painting landscapes, still-life, animals or people, I enjoy pushing the colors and textures in my art rather than portraying them exactly as they exist in reality. I find it is a relaxing way to express myself.” She works in several media depending on the subject. Linda prefers acrylic, pastel, encaustic and mixed-media compositions. Her favorite subjects are landscapes in the west as well as in the Thousand Island area of NY state and animals, both wild and domesticated. She is inspired by the modern impressionists, especially Wayne Thiebaud. Recently Linda has been exploring abstract paintings.
