Portraiture

Portraiture

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, January 24, 2021

Portraiture is one of the most iconic and consistently revisited subjects in art. Since the beginning of civilization, artists have been consumed with the desire to capture the likeness of their fellow human as well as their own. From da Vinci, to Kahlo, to Picasso, to Kehinde Wiley to name just a few of the many famous artists for whom portraiture was a staple in their practice, portraits are not only a way of recording the features and personalities of a subject, they are also a look into the greater collective cultural paradigm.

Portraits can convey much about a society’s, the artist’s, and the subject’s values and beliefs. Throughout art history, portraits have been realistic and accurate recreations of their subject, or unrecognizably abstract, but still the genre of portraiture captures the minds of artists and viewers alike.

Manifold Global invites artists of all backgrounds to share their artworks based on the theme Portraits and encourage both traditional and non-traditional interpretations of Portraiture.

Matthew Borgen's recent work utilizes imagery from comic books published during the mid-20th century — the genre’s so-called golden age. Using their visual conventions, nostalgic aura, and narrative structure in combination with images borrowed from art history and other popular cultural sources, Borgen has developed a hybrid visual language which he uses in his digital prints and wall installations to make comment on topics ranging from historical, formal strategies of artmaking to issues within the current political and social discourse.

I am an abstract artist represented by BeatyAmerican in Olde Kensington, Philadelphia.  My paintings include a series of Arctic landscapes which are based on images of arctic glaciers, tundra, and sea ice mainly in Greenland and Iceland.  I have been selected as the featured artist for the BeatyAmerican new space with NEXTFAB at 1800 American Street, Philadelphia.  I am drawn to the elements of the Arctic sea, land, and sky and the interface among these bodies.  Decisions are made what features and elements will remain and what will be discarded, reflecting a rapidly changing landscape yet still beautiful.
I work with oil paint, wet on dry, on wood panels with cradled frames establishing texture and depth using brushes, palette knives, oil sticks, and oil pens.  Completed paintings are professionally framed and ready to hang.
Earlier work focused on urban landscapes, refineries, bridges, buildings, other structures, and geometric patterns of developed lands and built environments.

Wendy is a Self-taught Collage Artist. The main focus of her Mixed Media Collage Work is to intermingle the old with the new. I push boundaries to create & discover different processes in which to incorporate images of older, more worn items with newer ones into my work, all for the purpose of creating one fluid, mystical image of beauty.
