The Artists

Featured Artist: Aileen Frick

I am interested in the way collage can be integrated into paintings so that one is not conscious of the boundary between the printed image and paint. Beauty and silence play an important part in my artwork. The paintings become quiet meditations on meaning and existence. Most of all, I try to create spaces that will invite the viewer inside. Each image is a progression of time into a quiet place within. The artistic result is no more than the language of that expression. Be it a vision, a memory, or an attraction, what is stored within cannot always be expressed in words. The degree, depth and sincerity of feelings or emotions are difficult to properly describe with language. My art is my music. Its measure may be the degree you find within yourselves connections to what I do not say, but what lies before you within the collage.

I began to love art as a kid, dreaming about winning the art contests that were offered in magazines. My uncle was a painter, and I used to love going up to his studio and looking at all the wonderful paintings he created. I have a number of his paintings in my home. As an adult I took two drawing classes in college, and loved them, but psychology was my first love. I also love interior design, thinking about color, texture, placement...etc.  I have created a series of textured art, which I call "Scupture on a Canvas". Each painting brings me to a new idea, a new color, and a new technique. I started charcoal drawings in July 2012. Most have an African theme. I am fascinated by African culture and the people. I can't seem to read enough about their customs, tribes, rituals, etc. I find them utterly fascinating.

Most of my work starts without an initial drawing but is preceded by many hours of research and thought. This creative process begins with an idea bubbling into my consciousness.  As the paint hits the painting surface, the images begin to reveal themselves.  I prefer to work on a large format using masonite or canvas. I may start by gluing paper to the board or by randomly applying colors to which I feel drawn.  As the piece develops, the forms take shape. Gesso, paint and more paper is applied and the creative process begins all over again.  It may take weeks or months to complete a painting. In the end is a merging of horse and human.  

Joshua Dean Wiley

  Joshua Dean Wiley’s artwork, inspired by his world, includes simple landscapes representing the rural Midwest of his youth and vivacious abstracts stimulated by the power of the great urban desert of Phoenix. Josh paints with a prolific range of styles.This creative force is driven by his desire to explore a whole variety of mediums. He implements various techniques of application to create texture, movement, and depth. Color and composition also play a major role in creating an emotional reaction or response with the viewer. Each of his artworks are painted with a myriad of layers, creating texture, color & movement, conveying images, emotions, and the layers of everyday life. He paints his world with elemental earth tones and metallics; iron oxide, chromium oxide, silver and gold. Josh continues to push the boundaries of presentation merging mediums to create sculptural art forms with acrylic, steel, canvas & wood. He encourages you to look closely at the variety of layers, textures and colors he has created.  Let them lead you into an appreciation of the hidden details in the world around you.
