THE
ARTISTS OF THE YEAR 2022
WINNERS ANNOUNCED!
--------------------------------------------------
JANUARY
ARTISTS OF THE MONTH


RUBY ARTIST OF JANUARY
CHRISTINE COLUMBO
"Tara Mandala" - Oil on linen

"I portray everyday people, mostly women, being layered and unlayered at the same time - visually and supernaturally dissolving to hint at the distortions of what is real and unreal in our world - inquiries into our deepest belief systems and conditioning.  All of my work is personal.  I seek to expose through the expressions of my subjects what may be buried or secretly loved and feared in all of us - life, death, consciousness, longing, loss and liberation." -- CHRISTINE COLUMBO

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


EMERALD ARTIST OF JANUARY
FLORIS BETROUW
"Precious Beatiful Amazon" - Papier-mache, acrylic

"I specialize in a self-designed, creative, mixed-medium art technique where the combination of the visual, tangible elements becomes reality with shapes and depth, resulting in an artwork that meets the criteria of the 3D  principles.  My love goes out to flora and fauna from the Amazon and our climate which is under threat.  Art is not an escape from reality but an extension of it, which reflects the consciousness of my thoughts." -- FLORIS BETROUW

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


CRYSTAL ARTIST OF JANUARY
MARK KAUFMAN
"Dancer With Black Tulle Skirt" - Watercolour

"I paint the female figure in sometimes absurd, sometimes haunting locations.  Far from creating emotionless family portraits, I blend color and imagery to explore themes of mythology, literature and philosophy and emotion.  I choose watercolor as a medium because it is fluid and sometimes serendipitous." -- MARK KAUFMAN

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


SAPPHIRE ARTIST OF JANUARY
WILLIAM WINBUSH
"Rhapsody In Blue And White" - Mixed media

"I paint in oil on canvas and gravitate toward landscapes, seascapes and portraiture, both people and animals.  I paint traditional, representational realism.  I enjoy meeting the challenge of getting as close as possible to duplicating what I see and my favorite part is the fun of recreating God’s creation on canvas.  For me painting is like therapy." -- WILLIAM WINBUSH
