Nobody Can Tell Me What To Do, Not Even Me!
There are neither good nor bad subjects.
From the point of view of pure Art,
you could almost establish it as an axiom that the subject is irrelevant,
style itself being an absolute manner of seeing things.
Of all lies, art is the least untrue.
Anything becomes interesting if you look at it long enough.
My name is Gersh and I’m a self-taught well-published Professional Photographer, Artist, Sci-fi & How-To Professional Photography & How-To Art Writer & Designer.
I started drawing and painting when I was 3 and the first time I had my photography work published was when I was a very young child.
I have never gone to school to study art, writing, design and/or photography, nor have I had anyone teaching me any of the said disciplines.
My art work comprises of a very large collection of black and white and color images which have been created by me in various styles, some of which are surrealism, realism, impressionism and other well-known artistic expressions, in addition to those which have been pioneered by me.
What sets me apart from all other artists, is not only a distinct style of my work, but also the fact that I work in almost each and every medium and genre and pioneer my own genres.
A large portion of my work are storyboards and illustration for books written by me, nevertheless there are also images which are not a part of any project.
They say that every image is worth a thousand words and that every image is a story. My art speaks for itself and I’m not here to describe it, because if my images couldn’t speak for themselves and could not tell stories, they wouldn’t be worth of even looking at them, needless speaking of being published and admired by people.
My art is not only a product of my knowledge, imagination, but is also a result of experiences achieved through the exploration of various mediums. From pen and Indian ink, charcoal, markers, oil, graphite, acrylics to less known materials, some of which have been created by me. Despite what has been said, I do not stick with any particular style, but on contrary remain a free explorer of various mediums and styles, which leaves me free not to be told what to do, not even by me, but to remain free in my exploration of the ways and choices to achieve an absolute paramount in my artistic-expression!
Visual Arts: Ceramics, Sculpture
“Working in multiples is a constant theme in my art. Most recently I have focused on ceramic wall pieces, as paintings in clay, often presented in groupings or grids. These pieces contain imagery that may represent influences such as architectural lines, primitive textiles, carvings reminiscent of wood block prints, or scribbles that imply sound waves or writing. Although clay is the most prominent medium in my work, I enjoy using other materials such as handmade paper, sand, stone, wood, and more to create installations and assemblages. I take pleasure in creating a contemporary dialogue through the most basic materials. I create art that promotes aesthetic universal language, with open-ended interpretation for all viewers.” – Zech
Visual Arts: Mixed Media, Painting
My artwork is non-objective and non-figurative abstract paintings. Acrylic paintings on canvas with some mixed media.
Jason’s style is one of “physicality” along the likes of Jackson Pollock and the abstract expressionists of the 1950’s. His work is collected everywhere from corporate collections to homes throughout the United States. His work has also been showcased in art galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and throughout the Midwest. His recent work, both big and bold, has been inspired by the vivid color, texture, and beauty of Loreto, The Baja where from 2007 until 2010 Jason had a studio/gallery. Currently, Jason creates his unique paintings in his studio in Indianapolis, Indiana.

I believe that art, creativity and motivation are all about feelings and emotions. I am an artist that strives in the everyday to keep things simple and spread positivity. I look for the peace and zen in the hustle and bustle, excitement and wonders of life and nature around us. I draw, paint, photograph, motivate, write, design and mix together artistic elements and media of all types to evoke fine art, literary and graphic design works that convey what I feel and visualize. Positive, creative energy is infectious…Other artists inspire me; I hope that I inspire other artists too! Inspirational ‘props’ to Russian street artist Pavel Puhov for his work entitled, Eyeglasses. LOVE IT!

Reflection and exploration was at the heart of Susan’s renewal process. The fellowship gave her the opportunity to attend writing workshops focused on her journey from journal writing to memoir. She found her creativity flourished during small shorter wriitng classes and retreats. Susan also found that, “the value of the Fellowship lies not only in the individual achievements of the participants but also in the collective conscience of a community where creativity is nourished.” The future holds more workshops and retreats as Susan continues down her renewal road. She plans to continue teaching, mentoring, and guiding her students, while writing for personal enjoyment.
