Silent Communication Art Show Artist Portraits
Los Angeles fine art photographer, Linnea Lenkus, uses her curatorial expertise to bring together a diverse collection of artists to show at our contemporary art gallery. Her selection of artists is narrowed down to artwork that pushes boundaries and leaves a lasting impression. As our last 2013 art show, Lenkus presented “Silent Communication”. As part of the artists participation, they were also photographed by Lenkus in a one-on-one portrait photography session. These artist portraits are a continuation to her Artist Portrait Series, a project in the making for future presentation at Linus. Lenkus specializes in fine art photography for all stages of people’s lives. Her two portrait studio locations are in Long Beach and Pasadena.
Digital artist Marcos Armitaje, submitted intricate photographs of crystal waves found within the interior of precious crystals. The abstract formations require a closer look in order to fully grasp the beauty captured through Armitaje’s lens. Although these particular photographs are of miniature size, this doesn’t take away from the compelling message the artist transmits through nature’s aesthetic treasures.
Marcos Armitaje, a contemporary digital artist from Venezuela, has painstakingly perfected the distinctive technique of capturing digital images of heat passing through natural earth minerals and crystals. Here digitally printed in luminous colors on metal and canvas, are the waves of “light” that are completely invisible to the naked eye and thus, cannot be detected by any other means. Crystalwave Art by Marcos Armitaje is one of a kind! Through this unique art form, you are experiencing firsthand the natural waves that native minerals emanate from the deepest part of the invisible spectrum.
Mr. Armitaje has sold works at the James Ratliff Gallery in Sedona, AZ, the Del Mar Art Center Gallery and at the La Jolla Art Association Gallery in La Jolla, CA. His works have been juried in to many shows, including the Museum of Computer Art in New York, the San Diego Art Institute, the San Diego Art Department, the Coastal Artists association of Solana Beach, CA, the Buenaventura Art Association in Ventura, the Studio Channel Islands Gallery in Camarillo, the Linus Gallery in Pasadena and many more. He recently completed large showings at galleries in Santa Fe, NM and at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, CA. In April, 2011, Marcos’ piece “LaSelva” won the $1000 Collector’s Award at the San Diego Art Institute 51st Annual International Exhibition.
“My art is not simply the expression of feeling or commitment into the material world where we reside. On the contrary, it is at its essence, the forced sequestration of electromagnetic radiation not visible to the human eye. The Crystalwave Art you observe here now on canvas, has bathed your corporal being since before you were born. I present to you here and now, the fossil radiation you have always innately known.”
- Marcos Armitaje
