BEST IN SHOW
Artists Of The Month
SAPPHIRE ARTIST OF JUNE
"I love creating pictures with a needle and thread. Traveling across the globe, walking among the streets I get inspired by the street lights and lanterns with their beauty, elegance and a bit of mystery. My works combine my interest in visual art, cross stitching and street culture. They are influenced by the different places I’ve lived and visited and they are a visual part of my memories. I usually have an archive of photographs I’ve taken that I use for a basis. In some cases I use my imagination. For me, art and cross stitching work closely."
RUBY ARTIST OF JUNE
"Honey I'm Home"
Oil on panel (12 x 12 inches)
"Enchanted by the world we live in and its beauty, I continually explore, learn, observe, discover and engage my imagination. My artwork reflects this journey in that it allows me to share my experiences with others in a way that hopefully captivates them by stimulating thought, feelings and emotion. I primarily paint in oil with the objective of making my paintings realistic and believable. The selection of subject matter for my art is generally prompted by an inspiration that stimulates my creativity. This could be a memory, an experience, a face or a gaze at a mesmerizing sky. Before I begin a painting or drawing, I visualize the finished piece on display and then I approach each step with the intent of making that vision a reality."
CRYSTAL ARTIST OF JUNE
Acrylic and paper collage (8 x 10 inches) Price on request
"A driving force behind why and what I create is the desire to translate my thoughts, feelings and understanding into something that can be experienced without the utterance of a single word. The themes I explore in my work include the subconscious and the self, consciousness and existence, systems and interconnection. I work primarily in mixed media and paper collage, combined with digital manipulations. I like to see what can be made from what already exists, how a material or image can be manipulated further and how an image in one context can be reconfigured to fit another."
EMERALD ARTIST OF JUNE
"Whenever possible, in addition to photos I take while traveling, I make time to sit and paint on site. This infuses all your senses with the immediate experience and enhances your memories of the site. Paintings produced after the fact of these locations retain this working memory and enhance the piece. I have carried art supplies all over the world on my travels to create pieces on site above (en plein air) and below (sous marine) the water."

Emerald Award -
"I submitted this piece of my soul and never thought I would really win, yet I did.
I cannot thank Gallery Ring enough for their encouragement and praise.
Coming to artistic expression by accident and later in life than some,
leaves me timid and insecure. This Award Of Excellence is the icing on my cake!"
Diamond Award Of Excellence -
"It is 6.45 in the morning in Austria, and first thing I did (after brewing some good, strong tea) was refreshing your site to see if the new show was already up. Imagine the shock, disbelief and gratitude, when I found my picture as Best in Show!!! To tell you the truth, this was a goal I so longed to achieve, it is definitely a milestone in my artistic life. Thank you SO MUCH!!!"
