ipad art of Chichester building

Oxmarket Gallery, Chichester

I have just finished an original piece for the Oxmarket Gallery's Hidden Artists exhibition. Running from 7th - 19th August and then again from 11th - 23rd December, the Hidden Artists exhibition is to raise money for the Oxmarket Gallery, which only survives on donations, hire fees and memberships.

Artists are kindly asked to donate a small postcard sized image for them to sell:

We are asking our friends, both professional and amateur, to generously donate postcard sized pieces of artwork. There are no restrictions or limitations as to subject matter, medium or how many may be donated (the more the better!).

I painted The Cross in the middle of Chichester, a famous meeting place, built in the late 1400s by the Bishop of Chichester. Visit the Oxmarket Gallery website for more details on their current and upcoming exhibitions.

The Lumen Prize Exhibition

Opportunity for digital artists

     iPad portrait of the artist Ben Rabe in Procreate
So many exhibitions are aimed at traditional artist mediums, which is why it is so nice to see this opportunity for digital artists to show their work in an artistic (as opposed to illustrative) setting. The Lumen Prize is the world's first international prize and tour celebrating the very best fine art created digitally.

Our shortlist and winning entries will start traveling the world as the Lumen Prize Exhibition in January 2013, appearing in top galleries and venues around the world. Work will be displayed on LED screens. In those areas without access to electronic display devices, the exhibition will be projected onto tarpaulins or walls.

 Participating galleries include Gallery 27, Cork Street, London; Plum Blossoms, Hong Kong; FQ Projects, Shanghai; Robert’s Books, Riga, Latvia as well as locations in Colombo and New York City. We are in discussions with galleries and venues in Melbourne, Berlin, and Harare.

I have entered two of my current portrait series, Red Beard and Rabe with the hope to being a part of this great world wide tour of digital art.

Portrait series

Portraits of iPad artists

I have done a series of portraits of fellow iPad artists, who I have been fortunate enough to have met via the many Flickr groups dedicated to Mobile Digital Artwork.

If you are an artist and have not yet used Flickr to share your work then I advise you to take a look.

Creating an account is free and it allows you to upload high resolution images of your work, which you can then exhibit in public groups. Some groups that are great for iPad art are:

Depending on your type of art, search for a group which suits your style or medium, or if you can't find one, try starting one up yourself.

The Threadneedle Prize

Posted on: May 31st, 2012 by roz No Comments

 

My iPad painting, "Freckles" (2012) has reached the final round of judging for the Threadneedle Prize for painting and sculpture in London. "Freckles" was painted using the Procreate App and was a study for flesh under natural lighting.

The painting will now be judged by Artist Peter Randall-Page, Curator and Art Critic Nicholas Usherwood and Curator at the National Gallery Christopher Riopelle. I should hear within a few weeks whether it has been selected for the exhibition running from 26th September - 13th October at the Mall Gallery near Charing Cross.

Fingers crossed for good news.
