Black & White

@ the Grosse Pointe Artists Association

This exhibition challenges artists to look at a world without color. From subtle shades of grays to black, we are seeking work ranging from realism to surrealism and abstraction.

The Juror, Marat Paransky is a sculptor, painter, photographer and mixed-media artist. Born in Kiev, Ukraine in 1986, his family settled in Mero Detroit in 1997. He received an MFA degree in Visual Arts from the Lesley University College of Art & Design in Cambridge, MA, and undergraduate degrees in fine arts and political science. His art has been exhibited throughout Michigan, as well as in Boston, San Francisco, Fayetteville, AR, and Windsor, ON. 
Marat’s work generally falls under the umbrellas of themed projects. One body of work focuses on the nuclear power/weapons industry. It combines his interest and research into the nuclear disasters, as well as its ties to his early childhood in Ukraine. Another project looks at chance and found objects/images. It takes the form of collage and assemblage, and there is often the inclusion of bits and pieces of Marat’s older artworks. Finally, there is the group of works that deals with recent political and artistic developments. The emphasis here is on text, language and symbols from everyday life, and it takes a more personal and self-reflexive approach.

I’m very excited to have this painting selected by juror Mario Moore to be included in this group exhibition. The Scarab Club was founded by a group of artists in 1907. It has a rich history, for which I’d love to be a part of, starting with this exhibit.

Live Painting Demo

Cruise into Pontiac tonight and tomorrow for a live painting demo.

As a participant in Pontiac’s Art on Wheels Festival, and on the heels of winning first place in Canvas Pontiac’s Art Competition, I will be fabricating a new landscape, painting live and open to the public inside the Alley Cat Cafe, located on the corner of N. Saginaw and W. Lawrence St., in downtown Pontiac, MI.

I will begin the painting Friday night (8/17/18) from 6-9pm, and hopefully complete the work tomorrow (8/18/18) during the busy Dream Cruise afternoon.

During the live art demo, limited edition prints of “Trail Dreams” will be available for $300, credit cards accepted. Also, I have six recent artworks you may enjoy exploring throughout the cafe.

I believe there will be lots of activity with street musicians, multiple artists and craftspeople, and food trucks serving the public, so it should be very interesting to see what that environment inspires in my work. Hope to see you there.
For all of you unable to make the event, I’ll try to post some of the action on my facebook page or instagram Acct. So like or follow me if you haven’t already, to stay in touch, and, Thanks.

Here’s a writeup about the Festival in the Oakland Press.

Canvas Pontiac – 1st Place

As an independent artist, I am very grateful to have received a first place award from the Canvas Pontiac art competition for my painting Trail Dreams.

The judges responded by saying, “from weaving paths through the forrest, with trees that change in and out of focus, a river that leans diagonally to the left, it’s perfectly positioned in the pocket part, and really captures your imagination.”

With this recognition, and prize money, I will continue painting large scale imaginary landscapes that give viewers new places to explore and enjoy.

I’m thankful for the opportunity to have this painting seen by so many people through this program. My 8’x10′ banner will continue to hang on the side of the building located at 35 N. Saginaw, downtown Pontiac, MI., for a full year.

Thank you for your interest and support.
