Dianne Kellogg – Ghost Pipes

Dianne Kellogg
Ghost Pipes

Dianne Kellogg studied watercolours with Florian K. Lawton (1921 – 2011), an American visual artist and a realist painter who painted Amish rural life near her home in Northeastern Ohio. His influence informs her eye for detail and interest in the natural world. This artwork of ghost pipes, or Monotropa uniflora as they are known by their Latin classification, was discovered in the undergrowth near her Pennsylvania cabin. In June 2017, she added it to her collection of fungi photos only to find that it was actually flora similar to mistletoe. Kellogg has manipulated the photo taken with a Galaxy VI mobile telephone by using halo and dry brush effects in Adobe Photoshop to create the digital image.

Yolanda V. Fundora – Digital Images of War and Peace

Yolanda V. Fundora finds her inspiration off the sidewalks and in the interior spaces of her digital world. She writes: “I’m mostly a visual being with an intense jealousy of the written word. I do what I can to share my physical and internal world through all things digital and occasionally with a pencil or two.”

Yolanda V. Fundora – Digital Images of Amsterdam & Ohio

Digital Images of Amsterdam & Ohio
by Yolanda V. Fundora

Yolanda Fundora has been making art in the digital realm since acquiring her first Mac 512K computer in 1985. Since then she has been in the habit of examining and commenting upon her internal and external worlds through a complex blend of digital technologies. Although well-versed in traditional painting and printmaking techniques, Yolanda believes that, for her, digital imaging responds best to the needs of contemporary art making and the demands of the modern lifestyle.

She has continual access to her audience through her Journeys Gallery@MONDO at www.mondosummit.com. That connection from viewer to imager and back again is vital to her production. Her artwork is also part of many private and corporate collections including the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Puerto Rico in San Juan where she had her second, one-woman show entitled “Toward a Digital Aesthetic: the Art of Yolanda Fundora.” In addition to her fine art, Fundora also designs textiles and illustrates children’s books. Her website is www.urban-amish.com.

Much of her inspiration and source material comes from her travels during which she is shaken from the taken-for-granted and forced to evaluate everything around her in a new light. Her recent visit to Amsterdam and a Midwest USA road trip are the inspiration for the images presented in Amsterdam Quarterly’s Summer 2014 issue.
