Wendy J St Christopher : Featured Artist
Wendy's quote on her website portfolio is very beautiful and at the same time very true to her art.
'If a little dreaming is dangerous, the
cure for it is not to dream less,
but to dream more ...
to dream ALL the time.
- Marcel Proust (1871-1922), French novelist
Her Reply is, "'My dreams are always in color.'
- Wendy J. St. Christopher, Artist
How true these words are for Wendy!
Nightwing is an abstract design, but I see a butterfly wing!
Stalker is another abstract work, but what draws me into this image is not only the fantastic color, but the triangular composition and form.
Look Through Any Window - But this isn't just any window, it's a window filled with color and an exhilarating sense of literally being pulled into the window!
Wendy describes this work as "A square, twin-view of the San Antonio Skyline, featuring the Hemisfair Tower of the Americas. From an original photograph taken in San Antonio, Texas."
I don't know why, but for some reason this work reminds me of the Twin Towers in happier times, but as we all know, abstract art is very much left to the viewer to interperate the work.
Magnolia Dream is most certainly the work of someone with a fantastic sense of imagination, and Wendy has no shortage of that in the least!
Da Vinci's Outpost is an interesting work with a composition not commonly seen, and I'll let Wendy say why by way of her own description of her work. "This photo-manipulation is one of three pieces inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's illustrations of flying machines. Other 'Da Vinci' images are available in this gallery." For me, this work heavily resonates inspiration from Da Vinci's drawings. Having drawn them in study myself, the inspiration is not only a new and unique work, but a work that draws interest from the viewer by way of the composition and formation of line and solid form.
REM Dreams is a work with a meaning, and one I strongly relate to! Wendy says "Being a practicing insomniac, I often think about sleep when I should be sleeping. This image is a dreamy manipulation of an original, fractal design."
Is there an insomniac out there that couldn't relate to REM Dreams? I doubt it. Constant thought and ideas seem to blossom in the very mind that is trying so desperately to sleep.
Ajax - Detail of handbrake between Union Pacific train cars. I find images like this, although the subject might be common as an entirety, when an artist plays on a single detailed element is the moment when the work becomes "fine art". The colors and line of composition are excellent!
I really like this image! Not only does Wendy clearly have a great sense of humor, but she also knows how to bring the best out of her subject matter. Wendy describes her image as "A 'Hairy Yucca', photographed at the San Antonio Botanical Garden in San Antonio, Texas. These plants are known for the curly, hair-like filaments edging the sword-shaped leaves. "
The colors are beautiful, but again, it's the fine attention to detail; pin sharp imagery and excellent composition that truly set this work apart from other "hairy yucca's".
Once again, I seem to repeat myself with my words, and yet I cannot represent an artist's entire portfolio sufficiently to do them justice. Feature after feature finds me among some of the most talented fine artists emerging today, and each has a lot to offer. Wendy J.St. Christopher is certainly no exception, so please visit her portfolio and enjoy what she creates. I promise you a feast!
