Alex AG photography is an attempt to define the future of photo art. The current crisis of creative photography is a result of changes in photojournalism and visual arts in general. The need for overly realistic images is significantly diminished and transformed. As a result Alex felt a need to work on reforming the entirety of approach to visual presentation as well as redefining the goals of the genre.
Alex AG works are based on oversized photographic images and heavily edited after the image is taken and combined in one panorama. The worlds in Alex’s works are merely inspired by reality, but in no way aim to accurately depict it. They are closer to idea of the dream about the world and its alternative version.
When creating his images Alex works on the whole complex of the visual signals, ranging from carefully choosing the palette of the piece: sometimes opulently bright and colorful and sometimes nearly monotone, – then proceeding to reworking the composition of the work: in some cases just adding a small innuendo of a fiction to completely realistic scene, and often creating a scene completely impossible equally in real world and in classic photographic image.
Jenna Lash is a visual artist who is fascinated by currency. Her interest is in diverse cultures and how their identities are represented by their money. Through the prism of her work, Lash’s art reflects her impressions of countries’ symbolic representations of their financial systems.
Lash’s enlarged pointillist images also bring attention to money’s beauty and symbolism. Further clarification of the meaning of currency and culture is seen by viewing her paintings individually, or together during an exhibit. The accessibility of her work allows viewers to relate in an intimate way with the images on her large and small money paintings.
Lash’s unique contemporary pointillism is reminiscent of Seurat’s dots of color. She has been written up by Ralph Gardner of “The Wall Street Journal,” and “Bloomberg News” for her solo show in Switzerland. “The National Art Museum and Gallery Guide,” and “The Art Now/New York Gallery Guide,” have both displayed illustrations of her work in their magazines.
Professional woodcarver and wood turner with more than 30 years of experience from tribal and folk art world to works with well-known antique reproduction companies and period furniture shops.

My fascination with the environment has spanned a 30 year career realizing projects that include oil soaked canvases made on site in Beauty Bay, Alaska during the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill, to viewer activated installations for galleries and museums including “The Romance of Fuel Injected Flesh” & “In the Silence of 16 Valves Running”. Other projects have utilized sculptural assemblages inspired by terrain parks built for extreme sports activities, becoming the performance stage for a summer snowboarding demonstration in NYC at Socrates Sculpture Park. The “Timberline Series” began in 1998 on the slopes of Mt. Hood, Oregon using a motion-based camera to capture the landscape as a discrete non-referential object, blurring the line between the familiar and the unrecognizable.
I’ve been in photography long enough to understand many technical and esthetic aspects yet short enough to remain excited when taking every picture.
I am trying to find the extraordinary features in everyday ordinary objects and happy to celebrate a really extraordinary object if I am lucky to see one.
I graduated in journalism at the State University of Saint Petersburg
I worked as a journalist in Russia before moving to France.
I have lived through some difficult situations in my life and I stopped writing for a while. . Nowadays I work as a Teacher (I teach French and Russian), I write articles and I paint when I have time. Painting is a sort of meditation for me.
Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Yelena never formally learned how to paint. Yelena Kimelblat
started to paint in 2008 and art became a means for Yelena to share with others her
vision of life. Yelena does not call herself an artist. She is “a woman, who paints”.
Yelena is avoiding any identification, any, even the most pretty labels. She was not
afraid to look inside herself – into the void, where you can perish or get everything.
Yelena got everything – she started to paint.
Yelena: “I never painted before in my life and couldn’t even imagine that I would start.
The root of my creativity stems from a desire to live a long life free from unhappiness,
awe before the awesome beauty of the natural world and the desire to include this
beauty within my own life and say to others “I see it this way!”
