ARTIST’S MESSAGE OF LOVE AND HOPE

Ashley Jackson, Canadian Painter

Ashley Jackson, Canadian Painter, Surrey, B.C., Canada

Ashley Jackson, Canadian Painter, Surrey, B.C., Canada

It is rare that we see a mature and successful transformation of the art materials in an emerging artist. However Ashley Jackson has achieved this and more!  Her passion, clarity of purpose, vision and flawless technique are definitely that of an authentic artist!

As a young five year old child, Ashley was drawing and finger painting. She remembers that she was always very attracted to colors. So even at this tender age, Ashley was confidently creating her own originals by changing a blue sky to purple or white flowers to pinks.  She knew from the beginning that she was entitled to her own creative process and she changed the forms and colors to her liking.

Ashley attended Springvale Primary School in Centurion, South Africa.   It felt right to her to stay within the lines as one teacher suggested and this was the early beginnings of her beautiful symbolic art works.

Ashley moved to South Surrey, B.C., Canada in 2001 and attended Semiahmoo Secondary School.  She excelled in her art classes and loved learning how to use various media such as pastels, pencils, acrylics and clay.  She found her teachers were very helpful.  Once again, in her teenage years, she began to incorporate certain symbols into her art works furthering the use of lines. She loved to do tribal work and drew many faces.  This education definitely contributed to her strength as an artist.

Her true foundation and education in art was accomplished during six years of private tutorial with Chris Lagalisse, Artist and  Art Educator.  Chris Lagalisse studied at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  He has a Bachelor of Arts and Education Degree and is a licensed instructor.  Her private tutorials were at the Neighbourhood Art Studio in White Rock, B.C.  Chris Lagalisse’s creative guidance and critiques immensely assisted Ashley to gain true confidence in herself as an artist and to develop her own unique art language.

Working in her own studio she began to experiment by adding various materials to the acrylic paint such as sand, wood, or beads.  She now creates her works of art using totally archival materials.

When Ashley paints she feels electrified and explosive.  Her sense of physical space and time fades away.  She believes that she is that divinely guided and inspired.  She receives vibrational energies and visions that she recreates in her amazing art works.  Her clear use of line and symbols as well as mixed media has formed the basis of Ashley Jackson’s resolved works of art.

Ashley is very aware of all the challenges people face in their minds.  She experienced a difficult time of shadows and her faith has brought her into a place full of optimism and light. She adds,

“That is why I use rich, intense colors and exhilarating energy. Creation is larger than us. I know it’s not just me!  I am being guided to paint these messages of love and hope.  I really can see that.”

Her intention once she has completed an artwork is that this may become a message of love and hope.  She believes that people need to experience something beautiful.  Ashley says, “I am trying to reach the viewer’s soul and leave an imprint of Light, Love, Hope and any positive emotion that will help to shift their energy, even if only for a brief moment.”

She has completed several portrait commissions and among these paintings is a portrait of a young boy who died at the age of 13 years.  She was able to intuit his surroundings and paint these surroundings accurately which made his family and friends very happy.  When she paints a new portrait she likes to show the subject’s personal growth and those particular surroundings that have deep meaning to them.

Ashley exhibited at the Fleetwood Festival of the Arts,  Fleetwood 84th Ave Cafe, StreetFEST, Surrey,B.C. Canada August 3rd, 2014.  There she created a community painting with her words “Hope and Love” in the centre and she invited others to add their own thoughts. The title of the painting is “Community” and it is sized 24 inches x 36 inches.  This spontaneous interactive creation helped to strengthen the values of each individual who participated and of the whole community that viewed the art work!

She has also exhibited at the Arnold Mikelson Festival of the Arts, White Rock, B.C., Canada in July, 2013.  During October 2014, she did a collaborative art exhibition, “A Life in Spirit and Color,” featuring her artworks and the artworks of Kevin Jordan, Canadian Painter at the Mind and Matter Gallery, White Rock, B.C., Canada.

Ashley Jackson is an outstanding Canadian painter and she has artworks held in private collections in Canada, Australia, Japan and Africa.

Sunil Vilas exclusive interview’s Laara Williamsen Canadian abstract expressionist artist

sunilvilas_large

It give me great pleasure to introduce our second interview staying in Canada..,  I welcome Internationally accailmed Canadaian  artist’s Laara Williamsen to our VIP Creative Lounge to continue our series of exclusive interviews

LAARA head shot may 8

1.    Creativity flows throughout our life but what was the first thing you can remember painting?

I remember my first painting when I was 5 years old attending Grade one.  My teacher, Miss Lellman, held it up for the class to see!  I painted a small picture of a blue sky, white clouds, mountains, trees and a grassy field with perspective!   Raised on a farm, in a rural area, we did not have painting supplies in our home but we always had colorful crayons and my very first memory of creating was drawing a detailed lamb when I was about three years old.

2.    We dont wakeup one day and say I want to be an artists.., when did you first realize you were going to be an artist?

My mother asked me when I was five years old what I wanted to be when I grew up!  I told her very clearly that I was an artist!  I remember this so well because she said I really should be a teacher like she was.  I remember giggling and saying “No,no, Mom, I am an artist!”  My confidence was rather shaky however and even though I continued to create it wasn’t until my 25th year that I really claimed my life role as an artist!  This was due to a dear friend, Christine Workman – Barnett who was already an established artist. Christine saw the worth in my creations.  She mentored me for over two years and finally one day I just woke up and acknowledged deep within that yes, I really am an artist in the eyes of the world. There was a cognitive “leap” in my understanding of my place in our contemporary art world as an artist, and this realization came when I was studying Modern Art History at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, B.C., Canada  But this idea of ” when did I realize I was artist” goes full circle because even when I was a shy child or dreamy teenager, I always knew that I was meant to be an artist. I believe this is because I find such energy, joy and a great feeling of harmony when creating. Everything feels like it’s in exactly the right place within and without when I am creating!

3.    Sunil – We all have individual style of painting.., How would you describe your art to someone that has never seen your work?

Laara- Sure, I like to keep my explanations simple!  I like to paint with oils and  acrylics. However, in the Springtime, when the blossoms are out I often work with watercolor because even the air is lightening up so then I like a media that is looser and lighter.  I paint in a way that could be called abstract but often you can see images of trees or water.  I love people, nature and the city as well so these themes can be found in many of my paintings.  I have also completed several series of paintings depicting content about violence against women, the plight of street kids, cancer recovery, aides and other social issues.  When I do these paintings in a series I hope that the artworks will help to bring about positive changes in our society.  But of course, once I finish the art work, I believe it gains a life of it’s own and people will interpret what they individually see and feel about the painting.

4.    Sunil – It is a dream come true for all artists to have famous collectors can you share with us if your work is on any famous person’s wall?

Laara – Well my last sale, January 2013, was to Laurie March who is a television DIY personality in Los Angeles, California, USA. I have work that is held in the permanent collection at the Biuro Pronocji Kultury, Gdansk, Poland and in the permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library, New York, NY, USA and Susan Hillman, International professional painter, born in England purchased one of my paintings many years ago.

5.   Sunil – as you see our joint activities as a group Globalization ICAS is doing but personally if you had the opportunity to change something in the art industry what would it be?

Laara- Well, not very much because I see we are already moving into a totally new “art world” and all that encompasses this because of the rapid and open communication.  I am very happy that fellow artists around the world can communicate so freely and that the resulting art reflects this.  So I see a tidal wave of changes already going on and I just want to observe for now and clap my hands!

6.    Sunil – Do you have any other interests or talents that you’d like to share?

Yes, I love music and often play the piano’s black keys with my eyes closed just improvising. I love improvise drama as well and even though I am not as active in public  performing as I was, my family and I really enjoy doing “in the moment little improvisations.”  So it is lot’s of fun!  Poetry and writing are also my favorite activities.  I am working on self publishing a book for people with cancer.  It is almost ready and is called Pathways to Health.  And the second book I want to finish this year is Professional Development for Emerging Artists.  I also love animals; dogs, cats, birds and horses and traveling to new places – exploring!

7.   Sunil – My favourite question to ask by Describing yourself in 3 words; one has to be a colour

Laara – Sunshine   River   Turquoise

Sunil continues.., because this is what I think you believe people who get to know you personally will see in you!!!

8.    Sunil – Once again can you elaborate more by telling us your perfect scenario for painting?

Laara – Sure, I am in a large studio with high ceilings with minimum 1,000 square feet and good natural north light from large windows, great ventilation, a 4 x 8 work table, a super sized easel, no music or sounds and lots of paintings supplies. No one interrupts my time in the studio!

I sit cross legged on a floor pillow, deep breath and do relaxation techniques until my mind is stilled.  Then I begin to have images floating across my mind.  When I am perfectly calm I stand up, go to the easel and paint, paint, paint!

This describes several of my past studios and also a studio that I currently rent once or twice a month for larger works!

9.    Sunil we nearly coming to the end of of our interview., Do you have any advice for artists just starting out?

Laara – Yes, I sure do!  One of the first steps that is very helpful to opening up your creativity is to work quickly and work all around the painting. Please do several – one right after the other.  No thinking!.  Just consider this preliminary work.  If you can paint ten 20 inch x 30 inch sheets of poster stock with a large brush in less than one hour, you will find yourself developing your own way of painting.  Much like when we were learning handwriting, we needed to practice and then we developed our very own handwriting. This quick practice with paints will help you find your own art language!

Artist: Laara Williamsen
Title: 7 Rites of Nature

Also, please photograph everything you do and try not to give your art away or sell it immediately.  It is good to keep your paintings close to you so that you can refer back to them from time to time.

People may want to give you free advice about your paintings.  If you get an “eureka” moment then the advice is good and you have learned something.  If not then don’t pay attention to the advice.  Just go ahead with what has true meaning for you!  You are creating from your own process at your own pace.  Trust the timing of your growth.  Don’t be hard on yourself by comparing your art work to others.  Remember everyone makes marks in their own unique way.  You are perfect in this moment.  Create everyday and just keep going!  When you have a body of 20 to 25 works of art that are resolved to the same size, same media, definitely the same scale and content, you can begin to think about exhibiting! And please remember to photograph the paintings!

10.   Sunil –  Thank you for your more detailed and practical advice, inspiration as well eye opening ideas for many new talented artists to take notes from your life time experiences..,  And finally our interview would not be complete by you sharing , what new work that you are currently working on?

Laara – I have three projects on the go.  Because I have a little home studio I work there on my small series of environmental mixed media.  These consist of many layers of acrylics and found objects such as nails, wood, shells, locks, roots!  I have many of these mixed media going at the same time and I allow the layers to dry so these take a few months to complete.

Artist: Laara WilliamsenTitle: Autumn river reflection

Title: Autumn river reflection

In another loft studio near to where I live and near to the beach. I create medium sized 16 x 20 or 20 x 24 oil or acrylic paintings of the natural surroundings combined with some drawing.  It is better to work on the oils away from my home because they take a few months to dry and properly cure.

I rent a studio in the country and go there about once or twice a month.  Here I can create 6 to 7 paintings sized 24 x 30 to 40 x60 in two days.  These paintings are new larger experimental works.  I am working with oils combining textures, colors, scraping down and drawing back into the paint to create abstractions.

Sunil – I am delighted to have the opportunity to meet you, it was a pleasant experience to talk openly with us by sharing  your life story, and your personal journey following the path of Arts..,until the day we physically meet I take this opportunity to wish you a continued sucesses and good luck with your new project on the book – “Pathway to Health” …, Thank you for taking part

Laara – Thank you for your interest in my painting! It has been an interesting activity to share my thoughts in this Interview!

BIOGRAPHY

Laara WilliamSen,

International acclaimed abstract expressionist painter

May 15, 1946, New Westminster, B.C. Canada

From the age of four years old, Laara WilliamSen was inspired to draw her natural surroundings while growing up in the Lower Fraser Valley in British Columbia, Canada.  At the age of 19 years, she studied with the international artist, Robert E. Wood in both his New Westminster and North Vancouver, B.C. studios where she learned the foundation of composition and the skill oil painting.  In 1984, she began her four year program at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, B.C. and she graduated in 1988 with a Major in Interdisciplinary Studies. During her time at Emily Carr, she discovered her own abstracted art language that continues to evolve today.  WilliamSen has been influenced by the paintings of W. Kandinsky, the Impressionists and the Fauve artists.

Fascinated by our relationship to the elements and by our human responses to the infinite cycles within nature, WilliamSen’s paintings are exemplary of her continuing and passionate exploration of this subject. She works with oils, acrylics or mixed media using a rich palette of colors, dramatic contrast and thick textures to form her compositions. Although she creates the painting, she believes that the completed painting has a life of its own.

WilliamSen has received four international awards, most notable, the Top Ten Painting Award in 1989 in the Artitudes competition sponsored by Gallery 54 in SoHo, New York, N.Y., U.S.A. and curated by the Fogg Museum, the Chicago MOMA and the Guild Hall Museum.  Local awards include The B.C. Cultural fund and The B.C. Scholarship.

She has had seventy solo exhibitions and has been included in over eighty group exhibitions.  Some exhibitions during the past two years include “The Peace Project – Make Peace 2012,” touring the USA, “Solo exhibition” at Small Rituals Society, White Rock, B.C., Canada, “Trees for Life Exhibition,”  in Scotland, “Symbiose.” at the Summer Art Festival at the De Stads Galerij, Oude Vest 34, Breda, The Netherlands, “The Peace Project 2011 Peace Rises,” touring the USA, “Smiles for Children,” France and Poland, Artists for Freedom,” Ludwigshafen/Rhein, Germany, “The Town Hall,” Artists for Freedom, Bensdorf, Germany, “Galileo Museum,” Artists for Freedom, Lennestad, Germany, “The Armory Exhibition,” Pasadena, California, U.S.A., “International Contemporary Art,” London, United Kingdom, “Brooklyn Art Library,” New York, N.Y., U.S.A., “The Twitter Art & Social Media Group Exhibition,” juried at the Diane Farris Gallery, Vancouver, B.C., Canada and the “Infusion Gallery,” Hilo, Hawaii, USA.  WilliamSen’s paintings are held in collections in Canada, the USA, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Germany, France, Italy, Poland, China, Thailand and Australia.
