For a better understanding and artistic performance related to this miniature exhibition Gallery4allarts is preparing for, I would like to ask those who (whether they are coming from a professional art background or not), are willing to submitting work, to read the notes and extracts mentioned below regarding the “miniature” painting and art in general and the origins of the “miniature” term itself.
term "miniature", as it addresses miniature
painting, is often confused with "miniaturize" and
some miniature art exhibitions do not refer to miniature
as it's initial meaning of techniques, but rather the
size of the painting (miniaturized painting). They
are two very separate descriptions. (extract from
Painting - A Brief History of the Art of Miniature”,
an article by: Rebecca Latham).
Exhibition will open on the11 December 2009 and will end on the 30 January 2010.

“The ongoing contemporary debate about photography as an art form raises interesting questions about the status of photography. For artist photographers the medium of photography is indubitably a modern art form which deals with all aspects of life. My main interest in this debate is crystallised in two ways: theoretically through my philosophical enquiries into the Aesthetics of Photography and practically through my own work, especially my abstract photography.
Because a photograph needs to be ‘an image of something’, photography as an artistic process seems to be predetermined by the existence of a particular real subject. Sometimes I accept this predetermination and try to capture the magic of mundane urban scenes, but at other times I choose to rebel and create images where the real subject is not recognisable and appears to have a new existence. Most of my work is film based photography in an attempt to resist the digital ubiquity. Because of this rebellion my recent images seem to evade a clear categorisation. I play with inversed perspective, I avoid reference points by using close-ups and I use the natural light in a particular way.
The ‘Emergent Light’ photographs are a series of works where the light is the subject and the catalyst at the same time. Trying to capture the beauty and fluidity of light is attempted through traditional photography (no manipulation is allowed) and particular view points (usually close-ups). What the eye of my camera records is a fragment of a momentary reality – the splitting of light on the surfaces of often very mundane domestic objects. These images have a very painterly quality which betrays my interest in colour, texture and abstraction.” – Roxana Tohaneanu-Shields
Roxana Tohaneanu-Shields is a Romanian born artist who lives and works in the UK . Having graduated from Bucharest University in Philosophy in 1998 she took a further degree in Art and Philosophy at The University of Reading where she is currently researching for a PhD in Aesthetics. She has exhibited her work in a number of galleries and art museums including The Art Museum of Constanta, The Art Museum of Brasov, Gallery4allarts at the Independent Liverpool Biennial 2008, the Other Gallery London, The Ecology Pavilion in Mile End and The Stroud House Gallery. Roxana works in a variety of media but her principal interest is in photography.

"The Journey of Thought or Meditations"
An exhibition of most recent oil paintings by Nicole Bartos
rhythm and vibration of my work is determined by the
levels of energy and the waves of thought.
to poetry or other writing process, such as calligraphy
(Oriental), inspired at different hours/days or by
different states of mind, some of my work cycles vary
through the working manner and subject, as I try to
express a specific state of mind; painting allows me
to find my ‘inner self’, while wondering
within meditative moments; it takes me on that ‘journey
of thought’... Eventually, I find the true expression
of one single moment.
Bartos, Liverpool based artist, originally from Romania,
has been working and exhibiting since 1997 in the field
of abstract, experimental (research) and conceptual
art using a range of media: mixed-media, installation,
land-art, ceramics/ sculpture, painting, drawing and
photography. As painting styles she admires the works
of Soulages, Zao Wu-Ki, Chagall, some Oriental art
and calligraphy, etc.
2006 Nicole has initiated and developed Gallery4allarts (www.gallery4allarts.com).
