RUBY ARTIST OF AUGUST
GABRIELE GRACINE
EMERALD ARTIST OF THE YEAR 2021
"Composition 12" - Digital

"I am a self-taught digital artist.  My process is a proprietary technique I'm constantly exploring and refining.  I work intuitively, allowing my images to lead me in bringing them to realization.  I create art in an effort to bring the power of beauty to the world.  I hope to capture the viewer's wonder and imagination with an object of visual poetry that is unique, deeply personal and extends an offer to contemplate entering the extraordinary digital realm.  My creative experience is pure delight." -- GABRIELE GRACINE

EMERALD ARTIST OF AUGUST
GABRIELA TORRES VANEGAS
"La Vida, El Latir, La Esperanza" - Acrylic on canvas

"I am fascinated with life; it challenges me to understand and question more about it and in turn understand myself better.  I play with the relationships between colour and meaning, objects and symbols, metaphors and allegories and their relationships to life in my paintings, as they transform my paintings into treasure hunts.  I explore societal systems and how they shape human life and create unwritten boundaries in everyday life.  The mundane becomes surreal.  Furthermore, I include the primary colours in my paintings as little Easter eggs, to honour my Colombian roots and to symbolize everything as all colours originate from the three primaries." -- GABRIELA TORRES VANEGAS

SAPPHIRE ARTIST OF AUGUST
ANNA ADAMS
"Metalhead" - Acrylic

------------------------------------------------------------------------


CRYSTAL ARTIST OF AUGUST
TELAGIO BAPTISTA
"Food For Thought" - Watercolour

"I am a portrait, figurative, landscape, seascape and cityscape artist using various atmospheric painting techniques.  I frequently utilize negative space to give my images room to "breathe" and express a specific feeling or mood.  My paintings have won 'Best of Show' in international art competitions in addition to awards received both regionally and nationally.  I paint solely with watercolor using a limited palette, valuing simplicity and restful space.  I view watercolor as a magical, exotic medium that is without boundaries.  My images vary from entirely realistic to more impressionistic, allowing the viewer to respond with every painting." -- TELAGIO BAPTISTA
