A world that exceeds the imagination and delights the eye

Art Form: Sculpture
Artist 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.

A painting should evoke a visceral response, drawing the viewer in, and inviting them to “take a journey” outside themselves. Beauty is captured in a moment on canvas.

Kathy Cartier

Bold enough to be understood from a distance but still create an invitation to come closer and explore

Art Form: Fiber
Artist Statement: Large scale collages are built by a layering of thoughts and ideas that evolve intuitively with each arrangement. Kathy Cartier’s work consists of mixed media, collage paintings and vessels composed of layers of handmade papers, paint and canvas. Her contemporary style often portrays both landscape and abstract designs. For many years she has specialized in traditional Japanese papermaking using oriental fibers that come from Mulberry trees. This process is the foundation she uses to create unusually rich and textured papers. Once the paper is made, it is cast onto rocks and other textured surfaces to create relief in her work. Inks, fabric dyes, acrylic paints and metallic powders are used for color and to highlight the forms. Silk and cashmere fibers are added for textural interest. For reflective qualities gemstones, glass beads and metal fragments are hand sewn onto the paper’s surface. This entire process is as rewarding to Kathy as her finished art work. Cartier's compositions are bold enough to be understood from a distance but still create an invitation to come closer and explore their intimate surfaces alive with texture and visual energy. Angel Dolls are created from hand-made paper, silk and cashmere fabric, dyes, acrylic paints and metallic powders.

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

Art Form: Painting
Artist 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.

Universal themes that invite viewers to take a closer look and contemplate emotion, fears, success and joy

Art Form: Painting
Artist Statement: Corinne Humphrey’s bold whimsical paintings have many layers. At first glance, paintings in the “Tao of Rudy” series appear as simple, child-like images of her rescued dog and muse, Rudy. Upon closer inspection, one discovers deeper meaning with titles like “Don’t Be Afraid to Leave the Path,” “Find a Balance,” “Wake Up to Love,” “Take the Leap,” and other universal themes that invite viewers to take a closer look and contemplate emotion, fears, success and joy. “Her paintings draw people in…” says one collector. “The message is so simple, but so big, like a lesson on how to live well,” says another. “Your paintings are so HAPPY,” “They really resonate with me,” and “They make me smile,” are just some of the comments made by art lovers of all ages. ?????????????? The paintings in the “Tao of Rudy” series are also the illustrations for three, multiple award-winning children’s books: The Tao of Rudy; Shoot for the Moon, Lessons on Life from a Dog Named Rudy; and Wake Up to Love, Lessons on Friendship from a Dog Named Rudy. Corinne’s books have been awarded a Bronze “IPPY” award for “Most Outstanding Book Design,” “Honorable Mention for Book of the Year,” “Gelette-Burgess Motivational/Inspirational Award” and a “Gold Moonbeam Children’s Book Award,” making them a perfect gift for young art lovers or as a companion piece to a painting or print.

Her mixed media pieces incorporate old sheet music, maps, book titles, scrabble letters and other items that inform and shape her themes.

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

Art Form: Sculpture
Artist 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.

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

Art Form: Jewelry
Artist 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! `

When human stories, history, cultures and political realities interact with everyday settings, common scenes become quite extraordinary.

Art Form: Painting
Artist Statement: I am a watercolorist with a love of travel. I often utilize my photographs from far away places for my renderings; however, I also enjoy painting the diversity of landscapes in Park City area as well. I am inspired by scenes and encounters that are often considered very ordinary and only earn a glance from passersby in their locales. When the human stories, history, cultures and political realities that accompany the settings are considered, these common scenes become quite extraordinary. I design my material first with my camera lens from many different angles, portray it with colors that come from life, and hope that the result offers the viewer an opportunity to visit the sites and absorb the stories, if only for a moment or two.
Seven years ago I retired from my position as the State Director of Special Education after a thirty-six year career as a special educator. Although I will always remain a passionate advocate for children with disabilities, it is thoroughly enjoyable to have more time for the world of art as well.

The pleasure of a finished piece of jewelry comes from hours of searching the desert for rough stones, polishing gems, and fabricating silver into a piece of art.

Art Form: Jewelry
Artist Statement: Jewelry is a moment of enjoyment which can last forever. As a prospector, gem-cutter and silversmith, I spend years preparing for that moment. My early work is very geometric, and I still like to design a piece that captures the formal modernism of mid-century Berkeley. The newest work has an organic interplay between polished stone and metal.  I try to capture a flow of nature that is frozen in time.

Creation of art is a natural desire, which is coming right from an artist's heart. Somebody long time ago gave an advice to a young poet: "If you can help it - do not write [poetry]". It is still true and applicable to any form of art.

Artist Statement:

"As a landscape photographer, I often need to trek and climb for miles, often hiking and overnight camping in inclement weather. Ill wait days to get the perfect light. In my equipment I need it to be extremely reliable in all weather, while providing maximum sharpness and detail. I need abundant resolution for the large prints landscapes require, all while minimizing weight. Canon provides all of this for me, with outstanding lenses, and the highest resolution single lens reflex camera on the market, the 50 megapixel 5dsr. As a professional photographer and over the past 20 years, I grew up shooting on film, and now mainly shoot on digital for these reasons listed above." -pbb

A World Without People

Art Form: Photography
Artist 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.

I was exposed to art at a very young age and have pursued my artistic passions with conviction for many years, the adventure has increased exponentially with time.

Art Form: Painting, Jewelry
Artist Statement:

I am inspired to create jewelry that is a part of me, colorful, textural, made to last, everyday wearable, makes a statement, is fun to wear and possibly has a story behind it.

My work as a silver/gold smith, began as a summer job in 1973 and now some 40 years later has become not only my passion but my serious artistic pursuit. My studio in my house is cozy, sunlit, filled with a collection of a life devoted to my craft, and my sanctuary, where I get to design and create jewelry! What could be better?

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

Art Form: Ceramics
Artist 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.
