Stan Adard

Digital—Lives in Jura hills of Switzerland and works in Switzerland. Born in 1954 in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, Swiss artist Stan Adard is a pioneer in contemporary digital flow art. He is internationally recognized for his "breathing pictures," a genre he developed in 2014. Stan works with 3D modeling and rendering software to create his artwork. Each breathing picture consists of a series of individual frames that are brought together as an animation.

In order to create the "breathing effect" within his digital art, Stan developed an algorithm specifically for this project that mimics human breathing patterns. The image literally breathes in a rhythmic, calming cadence, and the art is transformed into a spiritual mentor, reminding the viewer of the profound importance of mindfulness to experience the outer and inner world.

Venus Diana Cwynar

Painting—Lives and work in Coral Springs, Florida. Venus Diana Cwynar has been working with acrylics for the last 15 years but truly developed a passion for her work in the last ten years. Obsessed with the painting "The Gods sunset," she remembers chasing the sun just to figure out how to control and manipulate her work to reflect light and hue in different shades according to the light being reflected.

This is the reason she named her first collection "Chasing the Sun"; metalics, gold, Iridescent and blues took over her first works of art and is still her trademark. Every brush stroke is an emotion, passion, and story being told, seeking perfection in an abstract world.

Robert Shirk

Painting—Lives and works in Ormond Beach, Florida. Robert Shirk's figurative paintings are created on multiple sheets of layered plexiglass. Each sheet of clear plexiglass contains a part of the final image. The effect creates a 3 dimensional kinetic painting that moves and changes as the viewer’s perspective changes.

Robert has been influenced by the 1960’s optical and kinetic art of Israeli artist Yaacov Agam. Also the French Pointillist painters of the 1880’s, American photorealist painter Chuck Close, and the dramatic lighting of Dutch master Rembrandt van Ryan. He says "I love watching the dance and delight of the viewers eyes wile discovering the movement, harmony and depth created by layer upon layer of images in my paintings. I am always searching for a playful bridge between the 3 dimensions of sculpture, and the 2 dimensions of painting."
