Joao Colagem

Joao Colagem’s work is… fantastic. There are so many visual ideas that one finds oneself thinking that this piece is the best one has seen in a long time. And then you look at Colagem’s next work and it is just… or better. His sight is a quarry of interesting and fascinating work. I am going to have to take some time and study his work. Anyone who thinks they know how to do collages should visit Colagem’s sight and eat a little humble pie.

Patti Gibbons

I do maintain a sense of humor through much of my life, but now and then I find myself an emotional train wreck and then further immerse myself in my art. Friends, you are not forgotten, it’s just that I am better off alone.’

I do not know Ms. Gibbons. The reason I say this is because while browsing through her work and blog I got the sense of a stereotype jumping up at me. Its as if I keep bumping into the same person all the time and forgetting their name. Ms. Gibbons is an artist. Perhaps with mental health issues. Enthusiastic with periods of darkness. I would not be surprised if she had several cats. Some of her work is interesting, amusing, fun. Other pieces fall back into stereotypical artsy pieces. Some images are interesting while others seem too personal to be understood by a distant spectator. Perhaps what I have said will anger or upset her. That was not my intent. Like I said, I do not know Ms. Gibbons.

Jean Lacy

“Jean Lacy was born Laura Jean Wells in 1932 in Washington, D.C. and grew up near the campus of Howard University. Ms. Lacy was introduced at an early age to the philosophical thought and writings of Alain Locke, W.E.B. Du Bois and other African-American intellectuals. She received her BA in Art Education from Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and continued her studies at the Art Students League, New York City, 1956-1957, and Otis Art Institute, Los Angeles, 1958.”

I like Lacy’s work. For one thing she has a point of view. And her work has the quality of what I call “fictional photographs”. I also like her use of colours. They give each piece a mood.
