Flickr Wednesday: Paul Boudreau

This week’s Flickr Wednesday is a re-blog of one of my favorite artists.

Art by Rob Goldstein

I asked Paul if he wanted to make a statement and he told me to use what he has in his profile:

MICHEAL’S WORD PAINTING
By Artist Unknown

“It carries a certain up-right deportment, wouldn’t you say?” They had sat down on a bench that faced the artwork. Vanessa studied the reflection in a glass partition, ten or so feet to the right. It was this ability to view the pieces from alternate perceptions that they loved when coming to this museum; well, that and the third floor utility closet.

Shem continuously ignited her ambivalence, blowing it to smithereenies and opening wide swaths of ‘territoire d’imagination’.

“Given the elasticity of the lines,” she turns frontwards and leaning over to her right, right up next to Shem, so as he can see it also, runs a pointed finger in the air; a kind of semi-arc, “neither there,” she swings…

“I have been involved in ‘the arts’ one way or the other all my life.

Born in Kenya, I lived on a farm and made cards and presents for friends and family – In childhood I learned to use and make from what was around me. … now it is ‘fashionable’ to reuse, recycle.

I run workshops to help people find their creativity.

I have a small seasonal shop ‘Blistering Barnacles’ that I run with my partner.
We make almost everything we sell.

My work on Flickr is more for ‘fun’ – I enjoy entering the groups competitions and manipulating and mangling photos.  I Hope my work inspires you”

I went to college on a whim to study Photography of one an evening for a year. The rest is being self-taught, I love to absorb things, I am a learner and a little bit of a dreamer.

I have inspirational ideas that fire off in the middle of the day or night that can lead me unexpectedly to create the images in the Flickr stream you see. The DECAY series came from thoughts of ageing, applying drama and detail in abundance. Where does it go from here? who knows as I don’t, so watch this space I guess.

I live side by side with Epilepsy, I have aspirations and dreams just like everyone else though mine my may more vivid and deep. I am creative and listen to music for ultra inspiration to move me on. The two go hand in hand for me – Art and music. I get into what I do deeply, sinking into it as one would on an old comfy sofa. I am a happy, peaceful and calm person who watches and waits to see what comes next.

Flickr Wednesday: Roland Ezquerra

This week’s Flickr Showcase is Roland Ezquerra.

Roland gave me his biography in French.

Né à Tarbes en 1958 et du plus lointain que je me souvienne j’ai toujours été intéressé par l’Art.
Photographe autodidacte, la peinture m’a constamment intrigué, intéressé et je dirais même
passionné: la théâtralité du Caravage, la douceur des visages de Giovanni Bellini, le mysticisme
du Gréco, l’inventivité de Picasso, l’équilibre entre figuration et abstraction chez Nicolas de Stael l’écriture éclatée de Basquiat et sans oublié l’intensité dramatique d’un Anselm Kieffer…
toutes ces figures et bien d’autres de l’expression picturale m’ont formé.

J’ai voulu dans mes images photographiques intégrer des moyens différents comme le collage,
la gestuelle graphique, le flou contrôlé, la vivacité des couleurs et sans oublier la poésie que je
tente de transmettre dans mes œuvres.

Je veux qu’on interroge mes images, qu’on se questionne sur la couleur, le dynamisme de la
composition et les sources de l’inspiration. Les voyages en Grèce, en Italie entre autre ainsi que
les paysages plus intimes de Tarbes et Toulouse me nourrissent tout comme certaines facettes
du quotidien et la sensualité et la beauté du corps humain.
