Ingrid Neuhofer DohmRETURN TO NATURE: ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
Ingrid Neuhofer
Dohm
This exhibit is filled with images of landscapes and florals in nature. It reflects Ingrid Neuhofer Dohm’s Austrian upbringing where flowers and magnificent landscapes abound. Based in Rockford, Illinois, her studio is in a converted barn in a neighboring county. She also has family in Royal Oak, Michigan. If Dohm is not painting outdoors, en plein air, she will take reference photos and complete the paintings in her studio. She has an especially strong affinity for painting florals in watercolor outdoors, but when that’s not possible, she works from still lifes in acrylics indoors.

Dr. Mark H. KaplanWHILE WE WAIT: SCULPTURE
Mark H. Kaplan, M.D.

Mark H. Kaplan, M.D., Professor Emeritus of Michigan Medicine, is a physician who specialized in infectious diseases and virology, practicing medicine for over 52 years. He has always embraced art as an outlet for creative and emotional expression, especially during the trying times at the forefront of the AIDS epidemic. His ceramic works and accompanying wood hand-built furniture often depict the relationships between a doctor and patients, as well as the life of the everyday person. The ceramic pieces in this exhibit were sculpted by Dr. Kaplan and painted and glazed by his wife, Carol Dosik Kaplan. In addition to ceramic and wood, Kaplan also works in bronze/polyester resin and stone.

Ammy AmoretteCOLOR VISIÓN: ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
Ammy Amorette
Ammy Amorette is a self-taught singer and painter based in Michigan for the past five years. In her visual work, this Chilean artist conjures melodic representations with her brushstrokes. She mixes different techniques, shapes and colors experimentally to generate an original and dynamic expression. Each work is born from a background of music, which the singer uses to create melodies in fabric and acrylic. Similar to scat in jazz, Amorette occupies the canvas as one more space for vocal improvisation. Various techniques dance in rhythm, and colors, figures and lights mix to capture scenes full of energy, life and joy.

Mr. AtomicTHE PLACEBO EFFECT: ACRYLIC PAINTINGS
Mr. Atomic

Mike and Mark Kersey are identical twin brothers working under the pseudonym Mr. Atomic. They paint individually but freely exchange feedback. The foundation for most of their vibrant work is pop-culture, and their unique and unified creative process results in an original style they call narrative pop surrealism. Subjects in paintings are depicted narratively and infused with clues left for the viewer. Quirky humor mixed with artistic ability has elevated Mr. Atomic to an iconic status in their hometown of Toledo, Ohio and beyond. Like a placebo, Mr. Atomic paintings are absorbing and transport the viewer into a more cerebral state of mind.

Carol SteenHYPNAGOGIC VISIONS: ALUMINUM DYE SUBLIMATION PRINTS
Carol J. Steen

Carol J. Steen is a visionary artist whose work comes from the colorful, moving visions she sees from her synesthesia and hypnagogia. Hypnagogia, a normal state of consciousness that many experience, occurs between being awake and falling asleep. These dye sublimation prints in aluminum were created from the hypnagogic visions she has observed for the past seven years. Steen has shown and spoken about her work worldwide, most recently in Moscow, Russia. Steen grew up in Detroit and moved to New York City in 1974, where she currently lives. She briefly returned to Michigan in 1975 to be a visiting artist at U-M. Steen is president of the American Synesthesia Association, Inc.

Paula Nadelstern OPULENT ORNAMENTS: EMBELLISHED TEXTILES
Paula Nadelstern & Karen Selva

Kaleidoscope: the very word promises surprise and magic, change and chance. Exploding with visual excitement, a kaleidoscopic design organizes an abundance of light, color, form, and motion into a complex and coherent image. Paula Nadelstern has achieved international recognition for her innovative and complex patchwork quilts inspired by the bilateral symmetry of kaleidoscopic images. These elaborate ornaments, made together with Karen Selva, are a natural extension of Nadelstern’s fabric design and quilt focus, applying her personal technical and design strategies to the familiar gentleness of hand beading. Her work is featured on the cover of the 2nd edition of the Gifts of Art Kaleidoscope Coloring Book for Michigan Medicine patients and families.

Angelis JackowskiBEAUTY TRIUMPHS OVER FEAR: WATERCOLOR
Angelis Jackowski

Angelis Jackowski is an award-winning watercolorist and photographer from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Her favorite subjects are tropical and northern arboreal wildflowers that she often presents monumentally in vivid color and deep texture. The larger-than-life scale of her flowers allows the viewer to more fully enter into the color, shape, and textures for an enhanced visual experience. Jackowski’s goal is to portray the divinely-inspired beauty and majesty of the natural world as an antidote to the strife and discord of the synthetic world. She prefers to use watercolor in a non-traditional way, opting for rich opacity instead of wispy transparent washes.
