Comments Off on ART CRAWL: Drawings by David Nemeth, Jan 11 & Feb 8, 2013

David_Nemeth_SomethingFishyGoingOn.jpgIn Artword Gallery from Friday January 11 to Saturday February 23, 2013, a two-part drawing show by David Nemeth.The artist will be present for both January 11 and February 8 Art Crawl evenings. Artword Gallery is open during Artword Artbar hours.

David_Nemeth_BrokenE-stringBreakdown.jpgDavid Nemeth recently made his home in Hamilton, the city that inspired him to create his latest series, “Between the Hammer and a Hard Place”, an evocative study of Hamilton’s architecture and the people who reside there, as seen through the eyes of the artist.
David writes: “Creating a drawing is more than simply duplicating an image. The challenge is creating the emotion that captures a living, breathing moment of life. I try to tap into the emotion of a photograph to go beyond what the camera can “see”. It’s that emotion that I translate into a drawing and the closer I get to the end of an illustration, the stronger that emotion becomes.”
David works in several media, including oil, watercolour, and graphite on rag, canvas and linen. His illustration work is painstakingly detailed; its realism capturing not only moments of beauty, but also the sometimes harsh realities of life.  http://www.mylefteyestudios.ca/  Artist’s Bio: Read more…

Miranda Black (image left) Artist’s Statement: “In this time of environmental catastrophe and economical detriment Mother Earth needs a voice. It takes a lot to fight for our earth mother. Right now, fighting for our earth is still seen as against the stream. However the resilience of our planet and survival the human race are linked. As our climate shifts our lives will change and I am hopeful that our addictions will lessen. Now, more than any other time, the world is in need of art that generates freedom of our most precious human trait — our souls.  As a visionary artist my goal is to use the light of creativity and imagination to envision our world as a planet of health and spiritual wealth.” Artist present during Art Crawl Friday May 11, 2012.
