Steve Baker is an independent artist and writer, affiliated to the University of Central Lancashire as Emeritus Professor of Art History.  Since 2010 his artwork has been exhibited in the UK, USA, Australia and Europe, and was recently included in two major animal-themed museum shows in Poland and Germany.  Much of his writing over the past twenty years or so has directly addressed the visual representation of animals in art and in popular culture, and has contributed to the international development of animal studies in the arts, humanities and social sciences. His books include Artist|Animal, The Postmodern Animal, and Picturing the Beast.

 

 

A provocative exploration of the work of contemporary artists who engage with questions of animal life… Artist Animal” examines the work of contemporary artists who directly confront questions of animal life, treating animals not aesthetically or symbolically but rather as beings who actively share the world with humanity. Featuring full-color examples of their art, it situates artists within the wider project of thinking beyond the human, asserting art’s power to open new ways of thinking about animals.

 

EndangeredSteveBakerScreen Shot 2016-08-16 at 11.21.08 AM

“Picturing the Beast” Animals, Identity, and Representation. Explores how human beings use animals and images of animals to define themselves.

From Mickey Mouse to the teddy bear, from the Republican elephant to the use of “jackass” as an all-purpose insult, images of animals play a central role in politics, entertainment, and social interactions. In this penetrating look at how Western culture pictures the beast, Steve Baker examines how such images–sometimes affectionate, sometimes derogatory, always distorting–affect how real animals are perceived and treated.

“Artist|Animal” by Steve Baker

Steve Baker has made a significant contribution to the field of ‘animal studies’ in the arts, humanities and social sciences, and he is now recognized as a significant figure in the international development of this interdisciplinary field. He was a founder member of the Animal Studies Group in the UK. He is on the editorial boards of animal studies journals in the USA, UK, Australia and Italy, and also those of the book series ‘Animalibus’ (Penn State UP) and ‘Animal Publics’ (Sydney UP).  Since 2010 his artwork (which explores parallel themes to his academic research) has been shown in group exhibitions in the UK, USA and Australia, and has been reproduced and discussed in the journals Art & Research, Antennae, Tierstudien and Angelaki.  Steve brings a unique perspective to the Jury Panel.

Hot Kiln Glass

 

 

Hot Kiln Fused Glass: The Egyptians and Romans used the technique of an ancient fused glass process. Many intricate bowls, beautiful jewelry and decorative fused glass wall art pieces were made throughout the centuries using this method. With glass technology artists now have a greater knowledge of the method and endless creativity flourishes in their work.

 

 

ArtisansHOTencasusticandshellacafterbeingfiredIMG_6756

Encaustic Close Up

 

Encaustic Hot Wax: The word “encaustic” is taken from the Greek and means “to burn in”. In the encaustic process, pigmented wax is applied and then fused to a surface with heat. The broad range of encaustic medium, paint, surface effects, mixed media and a luminous translucency make each piece of art one of a kind.

 

 

ArtisansHOThammered metal

 

Welding: Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion. In addition to melting the base metal, a filler material is often added to the joint to form a pool of molten material (the weld pool) that cools to form a joint pressure which may be used in conjunction with heat to produce a weld.

 

 

 

 

Soldering:  Soldering is a process in which two or more items (usually metal) are joined together by melting and putting a filler metal (solder) into the joint, the filler metal having a lower melting point than the adjoining metal.

Sculpture by Kelly Manganaro

 

Polymer Clay: Polymer clays are manmade modeling materials composed of the same basic building materials: gels, fillers, plasticizers, coloring agents, and resins. Polymer clays are produced in a great range of colors that are sometimes mixed together creating a millefiori caning effect. The artist makes the sculptured piece by hand and then brings it to its hardened state with a temperature of up to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

ArtisansHOTMarshabaliberiIMG_6520

Fused Glass by Marsha Balbierri

 

Enameling: Enameling is the art of fusing glass to metal. Enamel is applied to clean metal.  The piece is heated in either a kiln or with a torch to a very high temperature of 1500, until the glass enamel melts and fuses to the metal.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pottery by Tracy Rosof Petersen

 

Pottery and Ceramics:  Pottery has been made by hand since prehistoric times. Early uses of clay centered on the construction of functional vessels and figurative sculptures, as the clay was hardened by baking it in the sun. There are many different techniques used when working with the various selections of clay. After the clay is hand-built or turned on a potter’s wheel it is fired in a hot kiln. The piece is glazed and re-fired.
Raku is a low-fire pottery technique in which pieces are placed in a preheated kiln and brought up to temperature quickly. Then  a combustible material is added, covered, and allowed to smoke over a period of time. The element of surprise is always fun with the end results!

Erica Howat “Woven Vessel”

 

 

 

Erica Howat began taking classes and workshops in 2008 to learn fiber art techniques after ending her 30-year restaurant career. Howat started her studio residency at the Annex so she could have a space to experiment with design and technique with a focus of showing her work. Drawn to organic fiber, Howat expresses her attraction to texture and form through tapestry weaving, knotting, and basket making. Materials such as yarn, paper, twine, leather, ribbon, reed and natural flora, rocks, and pods are combined into the pieces. Erica said, “Inspiration from the form, texture, and wildness of certain materials brings about a creative flow to make a piece that emphasizes the unique, natural beauty that grows around us and which may otherwise be taken for granted.”

 

 

ArmoryAnnexSharonKubaLesSoeurs

Sandra Kuba “Les Soeurs”

 

 

 

Sandra Kuba is a fiber and clay artist. She studies clay sculpture, hand building, and fiber art at the Armory Art Center and has traveled extensively to workshops to learn felting techniques. Sandra said, “I love how wool fibers are magically transformed, experimenting with a variety of raw wools and silks, and hand-felting by layering and building with unexpected materials.”

She was a still life prize recipient from the National Academy of Design, School of Fine Arts, NY. Susan has been featured in The New York Times and Dan’s Paper of Bridgehampton, NY. Susan said, “I am drawn to the luminosity of water and sky, be it at the water’s edge or in my mind’s eye. Both the sea and sky resonate with me in a very personal way.”

“Pastoral Universe” by Shawn Hall

 

Shawn’s artwork is often a reflection of the natural world, reminding the viewer that the Earth is in constant change. Her paintings express a loose, often ironically humorous, abstract representational style. Despite her ventures into different mediums, her paintings inform all of her work. These paintings loop back and revisit the familiar territory of the forms and processes found in nature.
