This Week’s Member Focus Round-Up: Ray-Mel Cornelius, Catherine Huerta and Kimberley Wiseman

This edition of Altpick.com’s blog post features the works of 3 amazing artists highlighted over this past week on the Altpick’s website.


ILLUSTRATOR KIMBERLEY WISEMAN

Kimberley Wiseman freelance illustrator, artist and dog enthusiast from New York City is drawn drawn to subject matters which are unconventional, quirky and amusing. “My work is personal and often intersected with broader social concerns. I am fascinated with history and popular culture and I am drawn to broad expressive and eclectic color.  Quite often I interweave friends, personal symbols and significant places into my pieces.”

ILLUSTRATOR RAY-MEL CORNELIUS

Raised on a farm outside a small town in Northeast Texas, Ray-Mel found the inspiration of wide-open spaces and its inhabitants to be the catalyst for my work. “Reflecting my interest in landscapes and the mythologies accompanying them, I begin with a dark underpainting and defines the form by applying layers of tonal values, allowing me to explore representation and abstraction while defining form.” Ray-Mel’s works are best described as his interpretations of folklore and Americana.

Huerta developed a realistic painting style for traditional paintings and digital images of nature, adventure, and sci-fi/fantasy, for young adults and adults. In 1995 Huerta moved to France, and has been working as a freelance illustrator for clients in Europe and the USA.

Simon Puschmann’s “Wastelands” wins AOP Gold Award

“For my series “Wastelands”, I wanted to highlight the scope and permanence of trash produced by various metropolitan cities. By transforming garbage into an elegant exercise of composition, form and line, the disposed waste begins to create an unusual portrait of each respective place. Through each urban center’s trash, a picture begins to take shape that reflects unique consumption patterns and habits”, comments Puschmann.
