Tom Doran

Tom's art career didn't actually begin with art. Instead it started with music. First, rock, in the soul, funk, and r&b area, then on to jazz. The jazz aesthetic provided the basis for his art: study and be well prepared so that when it's time to improvise - make the leap!

20 years ago he began improvising with collage and paint. Now his art is in the digital domain but he uses the same techniques, now called pixel collages: Use original images, find things to work together, keep it fresh, improvise.

Tom is a proficient jazz bassist and singer who is mostly self taught, he is mainly a self taught artist as well. Tom says: "Please judge me by my work".

Richard Youngstrom

Contemporary mosaic art is a durable, beautiful and practical art form for creating images, sculpture and household items. This style of mosaic art, called Picassiette, can transform lost, unwanted and discarded materials into pleasing images and useful objects, and keep them out of landfills.

On a more political level, this mosaic art reflects the diversity of our communities and the world around us. The images are made from shards of ceramic tiles, broken dishes, glass, stone, shells and found objects.

Like members of our societies, these pieces come from many places and incorporate a range of colors, textures, materials, shapes and sizes. Each piece is found and reclaimed, each piece is different from all the others and has a unique place and function in the larger work, and each piece sits in harmony with all the other pieces around it.

This show is a collection of recent work including images of landscapes: WINTER SQUALL, GREEN SCENE, GRAPE REFLECTION and 2D/3D WESTERN VIEW. DIVERSITY and CROSSROAD: CREATING, LEAVING BEHIND are more experimental, making use of different materials and methods, including reclaimed electronic circuit boards, fused glass and the use of broken tempered glass, sometimes called "crash glass", on collage.

Thomas Durand

Thomas H. Durand, originally from New York City, is a graduate of the Museum School of Fine Arts and an active painter and photographer in the Boston area. In addition to producing his own work, Thomas curates shows at JP Licks, public art locations, and sits on the board of JP Arts Council.

The sock monkey doll became Thomas's photographic subject after a particularly personal time of crisis. At the time these, hand made, depression era dolls were perfect figures to express the seemingly never-ending, raw emotions he was experiencing. Thomas's images are simultaneously playful, hopeful and even comforting. Between the images, their titles and the human experiences they evoke, there are often multiple ways of entering and engaging his work that bring tears to some and laughter to others. "My inspirations come from many places, which incorporate my thoughts on the human condition generally - on religion, nature, music, art history, American icons, social and current issues in addition to my own emotional demons and delights."

The black and white images are gelatin silver prints, hand printed by the photographer from the original negative. Each image is a limited edition and printed to archival standards on double weight fiber paper signed and numbered on the back. The color images (except the painted images) are similarly from original negatives printed by a professional color lab to archival standards.

No monkeys were harmed in the making of these photographs. More images and information can be viewed at www.monkeysox.com

BACK2BOLDBASICS

Through the use of minimalist pop abstractions, the goal of Jamaal's current series of paintings is to unlock the mind and arouse youthful emotions. He wants to challenge the viewer to be independent of thought and prejudice, and become audacious in allowing his or her inner emotions take charge. His hope is to help each Harvard Square J.P. Lickian reconnect with the innocence and freedom of their inner child and let their imaginations soar. After years of self discovery and an arduous search for the "Keys To Life", Jamaal has taken this turn towards straightforward conceptual designs to break art down into its simplest form and bring out the power of its relatability.


All art is for sale. You can contact him at 617 930 0275 or jmlevs88@aol.com and see more of his work at jamonit.carbonmade.com
