Peter Kemp
Coming from the always rainy Holand in former days I loved to draw. With my photography I got more tools to fit in all details into my photo stories, which are running through my head all day. I like to do story telling pictures in a vintage atmosphere. Trying to create some mystery and glamour into pics. Firstly by trying to create the old light, which is well known by the Dutch Master painters like Johannes Vermeer. Secondly by working together with my beautiful models and team to join me into my photo projects. My scenes focus a lot on details, with just a quick look. But a deep and longer look might open the door to another journey. I guess I like to create little stories within my stories. Well ...anyway all details are thought of long before the camera clicks.

Karol Bak

Karol Bak was born in 1961 in Kolo, Poland. From 1984 to 1989 he studied at the State School of Fine Arts (now ASP) in Poznan, at the Graphic Art Department. He completed his studies with two prized diplomas, at prof. Tadeusz Jackowskis graphic studio, and at prof. Jaroslaw Kozlowskis drawing studio. After graduation in 1989 Bak dealt with copperplate engraving and drawing. For the next few years he was busy with designing and took part in his artistic travels. In the second half of the 90s he started to paint on canvas, and from 2000 he has been engaged in it professionally. Bak paints using oil on canvas and often works on a few paintings at the same time. The main theme of his paintings is a womens beauty. Many of his figurative works have been inspired by myth and mythology. The artists works combine the following subject cycles as: Sailing-ship, Dialogs, Cocoons, Aureoles, Four elements, Judyta and Salome. Karol Baks paintings were displayed on a dozen or so individual exhibitions, and on group exhibitions, mainly in Poland, Germany, and Holland. Nowadays Karol Bak deals with easel painting and wall-painting, applied graphics, and also designing, and interior decoration. He lives and works in Poznan, Poland.

Karol Bak is an admirer of women. He is a glorifier of womanhood. He paints captivatingly beautiful phenomenal shapes. He seems to desire to reveal their souls. Therefore, by various methods he examines the deepest parts of their nature. His seraphic heroines flow in the dream, appear in immense space; they are angels, pearl-divers, personification of elements and winds; incarnated murders (Judyta, Salome) and even death (Thanatos); from time to time their dimension is galactic they are super new or the Milky Way. Karol Bak makes himself extremely great task for his intention is not to show women only from their physical side. However, he is aware of the fact that the woman is noticed not only as a body-subject from a point of view, but also as spiritual-physical human being, loving, delicate, and tender-hearted to utmost emotions. In other words, woman is variable and almost imperceptible. The artist wishes to show the womans nature throughout her body and more and more limited accessories. To reveal in visual arts the inside nature of the portrait-painted person was not easy, and the great artists had known about it ages ago. Leonardo da Vinci concisely said: A good painter paints two matters: a human being and his spiritual inside. The first stage is easy, the second difficult for should be presented b gestures and motions of the shown body. It is necessary to mention here that the genius of Renaissance, as we know, painted from nature, so the presented figures and scenes were revealed from the background.

Mysterious Paths

musetouch 163

On the other hand, the Poznan artist in his own way takes advantage of tradition for his needs. In most of his works he shows one elegant person who is characterized by clothes, and lately by an enlarged head-dress in style of aureole, nimbus, and halo. In the last case the author materializes what is invisible. Additionally, in various ways he attaches the woman to the pictures background, who sometimes like in The dreaming pearl appears in several spheres. In another composition (The angel patience) there is a Gods messenger somewhere high in the heaven, as a strong and tempting blond woman, who is drawing out from herself an eternal landscape. It seems to be similar with another Wandering angel where the hero of the picture is somehow a part of the matter already left by him. There is a kind of primordial existence, insects something. Taking into consideration the cycle Cocoons, where from the silk cloth female and male torsos are being born, and among others Rings secrets in which gorgeous heads ornaments like of exotic birds or lizards, linked with the dress which seems to be a part of the painted female body, we can state that Bak shows primitive, animal beauties. (This subject reflects the transforming woman in the story Struggling species by John Shirley and William Gibson from Gibsons collection Johnny Mnemonic). Additionally, his fascinating worlds seem to be created from the same substance. Thus it could be understood that he is a follower of the argument of the lost worlds unity. The mentioned subject is continued by the cycle Sailing-ship which is the most realistic art piece blending ship in the process of building and the Babel tower. This unfinished structure, surrounded by scaffolding with sails, is already pushed by the wind, and starts its almost impossible voyage. The next unreal visions of sailing-ships are shown as still not able to sail because either they resemble rushing whirlwind or in other example clearly outlined hull overwhelming most of the sails, covering the space, or a part of the ship. Especially sails flowing in different directions, and falling into layers, combine the background, and from which they should distinguish. There is no way to verbalize these visions in extended space and somehow emerging from one matter; they are a query or the artists joke, what could be explained by the materials tear visible in the upper part of one of the compositions (Sailing-ship VI). It enlightens the viewer on the fact that behind the life presented world, there is also any unknown reality.Briefly discussed variations on the subject of sailing-ships show that the painter is not an illustrator telling stories, but a creator using all possible painting means to paint and activate imagination of his audience. These and other Baks compositions cannot be presented in other means. However, they could be only somehow brought nearer to those viewers who are not familiar with the artists painting yet, and outline some important ideas of his art. But, substantiation and interpretations of the Poznan artists world presented in his works depends on individual intuition, feelings, and cultural experience of the viewer, whom the painter seems to invite to join his process of creation. Thus, imagination exactly, aspirations and research horizon of the viewer will decide on reading these paintings and certainly not only esthetic satisfaction. Coming back to the most numerous and most impressive Baks compositions of picturesque women, it is worth paying our attention that the artist exploring and presenting their spiritual conditions, wishes, with positive or negative energy arising from them, at the same time appoints them to roles: biblical, mythological or personifying elements.

musetouch 164

musetouch 165

Thus, as we can assume, there is certain theatrical manner of poses, artificiality, and intentional decorative value. In contrast with these art works, it is worth paying attention to the persons heads surrounded by enriched ovals, which are not only fascinating structure components of painting, but decorating the presented women. These figures traced from the cycle (the ideal figure, together with a triangle, professionally used by the artist in his graphics) are parts of dress, and also the materialized aura corresponding to aureole. Their meaning is symbolic. They mark contradictory emotions, confused ways of labyrinth (Ariadna II), emotion explosives (Ignes) or solar ring (Rosa Mundi), motion symbol, everlasting while, and the solar rose can represent labyrinth, life pilgrimage path. Development of symbols and particular significance of the listed paintings, as the examples, depends on invention and knowledge of the viewer. When we look at fascinating works of the artist from Poznan, we should notice that the forms around the persons, as emanation of their emotions, relate directly with the space surround, and also with the air space. Of course, at the beginning there is a feeling, connected with the art piece, and later on its understanding. Certainly many viewers who are keen on Baks art works leave away the ballast knowledge, and continue what is accepted breathing with the beauty of the presented women, according to own personal taste and life experience. Other viewers as I think get satisfied also from the picture stage and composition of the paintings. The pay attention to the beauty as the esthetic category, what in case of the discussed art, has the following meaning: harmony, accuracy, and equalization. We can mention here that Bak has been continuously developing his painting skills towards the ideal beauty, which due to Hegel is placed in undisturbed unity, peace and perfection itself . And finally, there is a group of viewers who are interested in explaining the idea of the art works. These viewers base on their own emotions, knowledge, and according to titles they will recall complex cultural and philosophical context. The beauty could get various shapes and could be shown in variety of ways. It is according to Elias Canetti pathetic and cold at the same time. It always includes due to this writer something fascinating like something what existed some time ago, and then has disappeared for a long time. () We cannot love it in spite we miss it. Thanks to the mysterious paths of admiration the beauty itself is getting richer than anything else we can have in us ourselves. Andrzej Haegenbarth

Tell us a little bit about yourself? How did you first get into photography?

An Artistic Child

Im a fine art conceptual photographer born in Valencia, Venezuela and currently based in Orlando, Florida. Ive always been interested in art, and I considered myself an artistic child. However, it wasnt until a couple of years ago that I decided to turn my love for art into a career. Im currently pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in painting, but my passion for photography is part of my every day life.

I had always enjoyed photography, but I truly started to develop a strong interest in photography when I bought my first DSLR camera. At first, I used to photograph about anything that I thought was interesting, and I wasnt particularly serious about photography. Later on, as I began to learn more and more about how to use my camera and how to work with post processing tools, I realized that there was much more that I could do with photography. I realized that I could use it as a medium to tell stories. I fell in love with photography the moment I discovered the storytelling quality of it. Did your early photographic goals include earning a living from photography, or did it start as a way to express yourself creatively? I definitely started as a way to express myself. In fact, the majority of my photographs are selfportraits. Not only because it is convenient since Im always available if I want to create a new idea, but also because there is something special about using self-portraiture as a vehicle to narrate stories. It is liberating, and it gives you a sense of freedom and control. What do you think is the most important factor in making a good photograph? There are many factors that can be considered important when making a good photograph. It could range from the technical aspects, composition, use of light, etc. to the deeper aspects like concept. I can appreciate a good photo thats well composed and has correct exposure, and that follows all the rules known in photography. However, to me, a good photo has to be able to reach and touch the viewer in one way or another. A good photo goes beyond the technicality and is able to tell a story and find a way to connect with the spectator. And about what is making a photographer a good one? A passion, sense for beauty, imagination, technique...?

musetouch 194

musetouch 195

Definitely passion and imagination are at the top of the list. Being open to experiment and to try new things (even if it means that you have to break a few rules) helps you become a better photographer. Having the desire to learn and understanding that you learn from your mistakes are also key ingredients. In order to succeed and become a good photographer (or anything else), you have to know and accept that you might fail many times, but your passion will always be the fuel to keep you going. How does your profession as an artist influence your life? Art gave me the confidence to believe in myself and its what reminds me everyday that I can achieve all my goals. Being an artist has become the most gratifying and liberating way to express myself, as well as given me the opportunity to create something that others can connect to and feel identified with. Do you feel that you see things around you differently than others? I think most artists certainly see things around them differently. I dont think, Im the exception. Artists are more sensitive to their surroundings and are capable to see beauty in the mundane, and to transform the ordinary into something extraordinary and even magical. Im often told that I find the most beautiful or unique locations to shoot my photos, but they are just places that people might see every day. Its not necessarily about finding a unique place but making it unique. Your photographs are quite romantic, dreamy, gentle, yet very passionate. Why that type of photography? I want my photos to reflect the emotions behind each concept, and some of the concepts end up being very romantic and nostalgic. I also like to add a touch of surrealism to my photographs. Many times, I want them to look like they could be an image out of a dream, where things do not always have to make sense. Besides, I cant deny the fact that Im a hopeless romantic. Could you share a favorite recent image and tell us a little of the back story behind it? My most recent photograph was actually made to be shared with Musetouch Magazine first. Its a love story titled One Last Waltz. Its a surreal concept about a girl whose lover passes away without having the chance to say goodbye, but somehow (perhaps in a dream) they reunite so they can dance one last waltz. Its actually up to the viewers interpretation because it doesnt have to be a lover, it could represent any loved one who is no longer with us. This nostalgic and emotion-filled image was inspired by those kind of dreams people usually have with their departed loved ones where they are aware its a dream and that the loved one is not alive, yet they feel every moment of it as if it was absolutely real.

Kiyo Murakami
I was born in 1976 and live in Tokyo, Japan. After graduated from the art school, I began to do various art - illustration, design and music. I found the way of expressing myself in the world of photography 2 years ago and I began my photographer career. I get the idea from my dreams and old memories, Im inspired by old movies and paintings, too. Some of my work are self portraits, I think a self-portrait helps our mental health. Its not only narcissism but the therapy and adventures for us. Recently, Im collaborating with Japanese corset brand abilletage. Classical costumes bring us to the unreal world and highlight the mystique of the woman. We held the photo exhibition in ShinJuku, Tokyo this November. Kiyo Murakami

David Graux
Who are you? I was born in Besancon, France in 1970, where I still live and work. I ve been painting for over 20 years now. When did you realize youre an artist? Very early without knowing exactly that I would be an artist. In my childhood, I was drawing all the time and after testing a lot of techniques , I started oil painting at the age of 18. I learned by copying ma favorite painters at that time , Dali, Klimt , Egon Shiele but creating my own subject and style from those art masters. I could tell that Im a self-made artist. Could you tell me some more about your paintings? Like all forms of poetic expression, I think my art is inherently philosophical. I try to capture the essence of a significant aspect of human existence, the way in which what seems most transparent, accessible, real and temporal is simultaneously illegible, distant and unattainable. Each of my painting remains an unsolved puzzle; a fluid beauty who only wears enough clothes to safeguard her decency and who appears as levitating on the surface of the canvas, against a no less mysterious background. I reveal in a gestural ,abstract style my own interpretation of an oneiric landscape. During the past, my background was very different ,without landscapes but calligraphy, abstract matters and so on . I always want to explore new directions and first of all evolve. I have to challenge my work and call into question my creativity. So in the next years, Im sure my style will present a new evolution but I dont have the slightest idea of it. Tell me about your inspiration...where is it coming from? I really dont know where it comes from, its something that is part of my soul, my heart ,my whole body. The feminine nude has always been my main subject, I need to paint the sensuality , the curves of a body and all the emotions that comes through it. Its always a pleasure to realize that Ive completed a new painting cause its a long process and I never know if I will be able to fulfill my purpose. At the same time, Ive always wanted to create a contrast between figurative and abstract styles. I think that makes my own unique artistic touch. Its like a duality in my work and my equilibrium as an artist comes through those two opposite styles.

Poetic Expression

musetouch 255

What is your creative process? Which techniques you utilize? When I start a new painting I just know exactly how will be my nude ( which one is oil painting) but all the background is totally blank. The colors, the matters ,the gestural are guiding my creativity and the construction of it. I paint with acrylic for the background so it allows me to apply several layers of painting due to the quick-drying of acrylic. I dont count all the different layers I paint on the canvas before getting the final result but I can say that it turns around 40 and 70. What is the contrast between the intent of your art and the perception of it? Its a real pleasure to see and hear people talking about their perception, their interpretation of my art because everyone has his own personal history, real-life experience so its natural to generate other feelings, so different from mine. Everyone has to appropriate my art and create a new story of his own. What aspiration as an artist is most important to you? To paint with my entire soul and heart and only listen to them. What has been your most exciting moment as an artist? Each personal exhibition is always my most exciting moment cause its usually a one-year work. So its always a great event to reveal my latest creations. Where do you see yourself in lets say...10 years? I really have no idea and wouldnt like to know it! Life is so surprising and full of unexpected occasions that I just think about living the present moment. MS

Max Gasparini
Max Gasparini was born in Rovato (Brescia), Italy in 1970. He currently lives in the Bergamo Province. Self-taught, he paints since he was really young without feeling the need to show his work. His studies of Classic Painting are reflected in his intimate subjects: portraits, still lives, landscapes realized with oil colors and egg based watercolors on wood. In 2007, on his way to Damascus, he meets the packing cardboard which frees him from the use of the easel and the orthodox techniques. Max discovers the big brushes, the action freedom, the color smearing and several other techniques, sometimes by chance, getting to the paradox of realizing his paintings with the paint remover. With this freedom of technique he now feels the need to show his works. The female face as a whole, representation of the Universe (from Plato) and intended as a figuration of the Mother Earth is the subject of his work of the last 2 years. White paintins disappear, replaced by old rusty metal, yute, used sacks. No more word unknow, but a backward glance, using materials inspired by those who have already benefited. The man old refused and the rust of yesterday: interpenetration of souls with his painting and desing.
