Artist: Melissa Harshman
Melissa Harshman received her MFA from the University of Wisconsin- Madison in 1992. She has been teaching printmaking at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia since the fall of 1993. She has been the Chair of the Printmaking Department since 2000.
Harshmans recent paintings and prints are conceived with sketches made on the computer. Images begin with a scanned image from sources such as dictionaries, childrens workbooks, coloring books or other eclectic material. The image is then layered with a variety of text and other images that create new meanings in the final piece. If the idea is to be made into a painting, the image is translated to canvas using acrylic paints and collaged layers. If the final product is to be a print the image is separated into four-color separations and printed via traditional methods such as lithography or serigraphy. Some of the images are completely whimsical while others have underlying political content. Harshman states, My goal is to create work that is aesthetically pleasing as well as conceptually significant.
Artist: Michael M von Karkowski (Poland)
I became interested in photography at the age of six, and I was always intrested in beauty. For four years I was a student of the Art Academy of drawing. My first steps in photography were only with nature and landscapes. I learned the art of photography from observing nature and through my mistakes. While working for an advertising agency. I published a multimedial CDR titled,Italy. I have taken places in several photo competitions, and worked on photoillustrations for another book. The most important subject for me in art are humans. A portion of the activities in my work, I paint in oil on canvas, I then make the image through digital manipulation and I also draw. I have many of my ideas expressed in my photography through my art while trying to capture their images through the camera lens.
