DENIS ROUSSEL ANNUAL FELLOWSHIP

DENIS ROUSSEL ANNUAL FELLOWSHIP

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, September 15, 2019

The Center for Fine Art Photography is excited to announce the second annual Denis Roussel Fellowship (DRF). This fellowship honors the memory of artist Denis Roussel who inspired many to take risks in their work, step outside the boundaries of traditional images, and realize the magic of photography. It is specially tailored to help support the artist reach the next level in their artistic path and explore multiple possibilities to address specific needs. A group of mentors and a variety of resources will be available to help the recipient set clear goals as they proceed. In addition, a fellowship stipend of $1,500 is awarded to achieve these goals.

 

Think beyond the traditional to show us work and ideas about the power of photography that evoke emotion, transform, inspire, and even heal through our deep connection to each other and through stories. Tell us how you want to use this fellowship to further your life as an artist.

Demetra Tassiou's work is inspired by the Greek culture and Art history and minimalistic and acute techniques used in Japanese art. Her artwork are  imaginative reconnections with nature, sea, and the colorful environments that I have yearned for after moving to large urban American cities from the Mediterranean landscapes.

Phyllis Anderson has been painting for nearly three decades, exploring process and outcome, meaning and metaphor.  She approaches her work like a lab experiment, a set of steps to see what will happen. Her painting process usually begins with a thick underpainting using a carefully chosen color (a color of influence!) which is left intentionally visible at the edges.

My recent works are a break from the painterly images I have made in the past few years. In a search for something more deliberate I changed my painting method and style. It is an abstraction using crosshatching, a technique usually reserved for rendering form and depth I have created an abstract flat image more akin to topography verging on minimalism. The linear hatch marks are made on a matte gradiated background which focuses the viewer on the duality of surface and color. These works are a meditation on labor and time: of coming together and the borders that separate us. The marks are not only creating an aesthetic pattern they are literally the marking of art, and the work that has gone into the piece.
