Actually Lipking's vision is the opposite of what a camera does. <br />A photograph tends to flatten an image, reducing all relationships of color and shade to a stiff mechanical pattern. <br />Lipking's skill lies in his ability to probe in and around his subject. <br />With a highly sensitive eye, he sees nuances of value and hue that the camera and most people can never see. <br />More incredibly, he is able to translate his highly nuanced vision into a painted image. Lipking's true subject is his pictorial fluency. <br />Seeing one of his paintings involves entering into the pictorial world he has created. Like all great realists, he has the ability to generate powerful fictions.<br />2016 - Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine Rooted in Nature<br />2016 - Art of The West Magazine cover artist<br />2015 - Pratique des Arts French art magazine Jeremy Lipking Une realite autre<br />2014 - Artysta i Sztuka Polish art magazine ?ONGLER Z P?DZLEM W D?ONI.

She is syndicated with Cartoonists and Writers Syndicate/New York Times Syndicate, with her work appearing across the United States in such publications as The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, Newsday, and the Austin American Statesman; and internationally in Le Monde and Courrier International.<br />Telnaes also contributes an exclusive weekly cartoon to the nonprofit online news service Women's eNews.<br />Her animated editorial cartoons are featured on The Washington Post's website.<br />Telnaes earned her B.F.A. at the California Institute of the Arts, specializing in character animation.<br />Before becoming an editorial cartoonist, she worked for some years in the animation field, most notably with Walt Disney Imagineering.<br />She contributed to such films as The Brave Little Toaster and The Chipmunk Adventure.<br />She is a past vice president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists and is a member of the American Newswomen's Club.</p> <p><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></p> <p><img src="/static/media/uploads/Taheri/Ann%20Telnaes%20-%20Sweden%201111.jpeg" border="0" width="1200" height="1200" /></p>Website AdminMon, 19 Jun 2017 14:48:44 +0430
