MOTHER i by Chelle Delaney
HONORABLE MENTION

Chelle Delaney says, "I love driving and wandering through the landscape and finding images that voluntarily offer themselves up from the natural and manmade environments.

My concentration and distillation of these elements are what I believe are imprinted in memory. These imprints range from the odd juxtaposition to the graphic to the painterly that are captured in memory and reshaped through time."

Chelle Delaney graduated from the University of South Carolina, where she studied English Literature. She later studied photography at the School of Visual Arts and the Southwest School of Arts in San Antonio, Texas.

MOBILE HOME PARK by Michael Jantzen
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

'Interventions' is a series of photomontages from Michael Jantzen that are created with images of some of his built and un-built sculptures. 

These images are superimposed into various real world landscapes in order to inspire stories in the minds of the viewers, about what these things are, and how they got there.

Often images of people and/or animals are added to the photo collages (juxtaposed to the sculptures) in order to amplify the surreal nature of the stories.

Jantzen hopes that the incorporation of images of his original structures into the real world landscapes, will help to create totally original photomontages.

Michael Jantzen’s work is very well known around the world. It has been featured in thousands of articles in books, magazines, newspapers, and on the Web. His work has been shown in many galleries, and on various TV documentaries. It has also been exhibited at the National Building Museum, the Canadian Center for Architecture, the Harvard School of Design and Architecture, the Santa Fe Institute, and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Most of his work merges art, architecture, technology, and sustainable design into one unique experience. Extreme innovation is his goal in everything he creates. Most of this innovation has been focused on the re-invention of the built environment, and photography.

THE UNRAVELING by Jane Schultz
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Jane Schultz says, "As a self-taught photographer and artist, over recent years, I have immersed my passions into a newer art movement, visual art created almost exclusively using mobile devices.

I would describe my images as expressive or emotive, many with an element of the abstract. I use a lot of blending and distortion techniques. Unusual or disproportioned body shapes can be unsettling, and draw the eye. I also like to shoot in slow shutter, which gives an innate distortion to the capture. I also use collage work and blending and painting techniques to "showcase" distorted facial elements. I could never have imagined where mobile artistry has taken me or the creative possibilities it has provided.

Staying pure to mobile pushes me to produce a higher level image, to create with less to start with and from within. The ability to share both within a community and publicly in an instant is revolutionary and fundamental to the mobile art movement."

Jane Schultz is an award winning mobile artist from Pennsylvania, USA. Her work embodies a visual illustration of art created from mobile devices which manifest as expressive or emotive images many with an element of the abstract. Jane's images have been exhibited in museums, art centers, and galleries on an international basis, including in Florence, Rome, and Paris, and featured in numerous publications for photography and mobile artistry.

As NEM Artist, she curates the main submissions for the New Era Museum and, additionally, administers @ig_artistry and Edit from the Soul, Instagram and Facebook groups which promote originality, creativity, and emotive art.

THE BUTTERFLIES OF MEMORY by Sonia Melnikova-Raich
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Sonia Melnikova-Raich says, "In the early days, photographic images were sometimes called “waking dreams.”

There seemed to be a certain magic involved, some even believed the camera was capable of capturing the soul of the subject. When photography became more commonplace, people came to regard it as an accurate depiction of reality, with special appreciation for technically perfect pictures, “just like real.” But in real life things are rarely still and perfectly arranged, and our visual experience is rarely as focused and precise as a “perfect” photograph might suggest.

A moving object, bad weather, poor lighting or obstructed view can be a challenge or an opportunity to bring the magic back. In creating mysterious dreamlike images that do not necessarily reflect objective reality, I endeavor to capture fleeting moments, barely visible, ambiguous or disappearing things"

Sonia Melnikova-Raich grew up in Moscow, Russia, where she earned a Master's degree in architecture and fine art. Based in San Francisco since 1987, she exhibits locally and nationally, including several solo shows, and has been a winner and a finalist in many juried photography exhibits.

Her works were featured in professional photography journals and magazines, including Shadow & Light Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle photography section, Creativity Quarterly & Diffusion: Journal of Unconventional Photograph..

STUDY FOR A BEACH INSTALLATION by Mykel Rose
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Mykel Rose says, 'Tomorrow...Our habitat, the Earth’s biosphere is rapidly changing, and as a consequence, the future of our species has never been put into question like it is today. More importantly, this existential dilemma is of our own making, a self-inflicted wound of sorts.

We are the culprits in this play, the ones polluting the air with toxins, contaminating the planet with plastics. But wait, we have the information to correct this imbalance!  Are we prepared to act and pay
the price?  The Earth will survive our follies, but the question is, will we?

My new series of landscapes combined with (plastic) mannequin heads create surrealist images, which call into question the human species role in maintaining the planet's environment for future generations.

I started my artistic endeavors in Los Angeles working for a production
studio servicing advertising agencies.  After three years of fine-tuning my design/ illustration techniques, I moved to Europe where I illustrated magazine stories and book covers for well-known publishers in  Germany and Switzerland. Later, I relocated to London to work on an
animated feature and begin a new life chapter.  My next career stop was New York,  supervising the background
department at a large animation studio in Manhatten. 

Eventually, my career took me full circle, and now,  once again, I am in Los Angeles where I art direct for studios both here and abroad.  When I'm not working in animation or producing my projects in LA, I roam the world.

Photography and painting are my traveling companions, which allow me to record my thoughts in a visual diary.
