Skin, Brain, Heart

BY CLARA COLEMAN
@ VOL 17 ON APR 12, 2013

Ever since Clara Coleman started seriously drawing and painting, she found a natural curiosity and urge to observe and record the things going on around her; mostly through self portraits. Clara uses herself as a model for a number of reasons. Although she does enjoy painting other people - friends and models - when she has the chance. A lot of how Clara spends her time is with paints on a surface, often times looking in a mirror, all while simultaneously reflecting on the different psychological, environmental, and cultural changes in her life.

Elegant Adaptations In Oil

BY DAVID VICKERY
@ VOL 20 ON JAN 31, 2014

David Vickery is a resident of Cushing, where he has been working for the past 23 years, finding inspiration in local scenes and creating oil paintings with an eye for the imperfect, quirky, and sometimes elegant adaptations we’ve made in order to live here.  His process is to carry a camera wherever he goes and photograph any scene that moves him, then contemplate and carefully re-compose the photo in the studio and paint it.

Context

BY SEYHR QAYUM
@ VOL 1 ON JAN 27, 2018

In her presentation, Seyhr Qayum shares her current studio practice and the concepts that inform her art-making decisions. 

Conceptually, Seyhr's art is largely about cross-cultural exchange, and her perception of the differences between liberal and conservative societies. She combines representational portraiture and figurative illustrations, with elements of abstraction. 

The idea of women empowerment is a focus in Seyhr's artworks. She has seen both the liberal and conservative side of life, and therefore has a fair idea of what it means to be a woman in both these worlds. All her work portrays Pakistani women as strong, empowered members of the society rather than stale and stereotypical illustrations. Her life-sized paintings of empowered female figures, such as ‘Here’s Looking at You, Kid,’ where a woman boldly stares back at you, encapsulate the idea of showing Pakistani women as strong and capable rather than submissive or troubled beings.
