Shadow of Love (Nude, N.4) 2016, Faria Raji

A solo exhibition of works by: Faria Raji
July 29 - August 25, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, July, 2017, 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Open Mind Art Space is pleased to present THEIA MANIA, a solo exhibition featuring mixed media works by Faria Raji. An opening reception will be held for the artist on Saturday, July 29th from 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM. The exhibition will be on view from July 29th through August 25th.

Faria Raji’s works are at once visceral and ephemeral the notion that amidst decay and misery the only vision that radiates promise is the figurative form. Rooted in the tradition of photography pieces go beyond the photograph; he destroys the surface of the images we selectively applying texture and impasto paint. As individual photos uniquely call for. Raji will mark, burn, score, deface, paint, and modify each print to heighten and clarify its language.

In his most recent grouping of works titled THEIA MANIA, a Greek term meaning "divine madness from the Gods,” Raji utilizes photography and various construction methodologies to create worlds in which naked nymphs inhabit mysterious erotic realms. His artwork lives in a continuum where the dust of love and erotic desire has not yet settled. Raji attempts to immortalize the energy of life, a brief moment of enlightenment experienced at the time of ecstasy which produces a temporary loss of consciousness as every cell fires in unison.

The Story Behind the Bridge
Latitude: 34.134694 | Longitude: -118.166037
Originally named the Huntington Terrace Bridge when first dedicated in 1914, the name was changed within just a few years to the La Loma Bridge when La Loma Road received its new name. Re-creation of historic design features including the handsome balustrade, light standards and globes, were part of the recent restoration project and have brought the bridge back to its original appearance. Thank you’s are in order to the members of the volunteer Design Advisory Committee, including Ann Scheid, Chris Peck, Andrea Rawlings, Robin Salzer, Michael Krakower, Jesse Lattig, and Sue Mossman in overseeing the many nuances of the design, historic details, materials and finishes. The next seismic upgrade planned is for the Holly Street Bridge and will begin soon.

FROM LOS ANGELES
DE LOS ANGELES

Traveling is not only fun and refreshing, it is inspiring and brings pause, a sort of stand still in life. From there, new avenues open, unknown directions and roads appear and life takes a new path. This is the beauty of stopping. It is in fact accelerating our rides, our ideas, our desires. Traveling should be part of our everyday life so we can keep discovering…

NEW WEBSITE/NOUVEAU SITE INTERNET
I am happy to announce the launch of my new website in English and French. The web site included a wider range of my work from new photographs and series to videos and more.

J’ai le plaisir d’annoncer le lancement de mon nouveau site internet en Fran├žais et en Anglais. Ce site internet inclut un spectre plus large et complet de mon travail allant de nouvelles photographies et series a des videos et plus.

(Editor’s note) Many thanks to Cristina and Brian for sending in these photos of their high flying skills at the memorial bench for Tony and Paula Luna in Pacific Grove, California along the Monterey Peninsula coastline. NO, PAULA  AND TONY HAVE NOT PASSED ON! They just wanted to have a memorial bench in their honor that they could enjoy before they do move on. If you are in Monterey, and are so inclined, stop by our “memorial” bench and send a selfie doing what you “LOVE” to do.  It is located at 1037 Ocean View Blvd., Pacific Grove, three doors down from Esplanade Street. Enjoy!

- Randii Oliver, Shamanic Fine Artist- “Hi Tony, I'm stunned and I need to share!!!!!  I just found out that some of my early digital artwork is in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England, as part of a Digital Art collection that was gifted by art historian, Patric Prince. Patric is an old friend of mine whom I have lost touch with. She taught at Cal State LA, when I was a grad student there, and I was in several seminal digital art shows that she curated. I helped to run the Cyberspace Gallery in Los Angeles at it's inception in 1991, which she co-created with Michael Masucci.

I've been hidden away for so long!!!!!!! Never did I expect to have my artwork in a museum as part of the history of Computer Graphics! WOW!!!!!!!!!  I’m SOMEBODY!!!!!!!!  LOL!!!!!”

(And in a follow-up email…)

“Hi Tony, Attached is my digital image, ‘Mann’, which is one of the images included in the Victoria and Albert Museum permanent collection…   I also have the dates for the Hastings Branch Library show in Pasadena:”

(Editor’s note: The following Memorial article in honor of our dear colleague and friend Soren Petersen by Charley W. Bush, appeared in the Huffington Post, June 2.)



Soren Ingomar Petersen: One of the great design pioneers and mentors of our generation
In honor of Soren, this will be under 1000 words: short, joyful, and honest.
Soren, of course would have taken closer to 10,000 words. In Soren’s case all those words have been a testament to his generosity and joy in collaborating with people. I am now not just a better design researcher. Because of Soren I am kinder, more capable of experiencing joy, and have seen, first hand, what it takes to make a positive dent in the universe.
Soren accomplished more in his life than anyone thought he was capable of. As a dyslexic child in Denmark, he was told he was too “dumb” to go to school. His final position was as Dean of Academic Affairs at Niels Brock International, Denmark’s oldest and most recognized business school. I once asked him what positive changes he felt responsible for. I’ve done my best to remember what he said:
He first mentioned being on the team that created the first, non-military, Heads-Up-Displays [HUD] for race car drivers. In an effort to improve the safety of his team’s driver he laid the groundwork for what we call Augmented or Virtual Reality. Soren’ simply said, “I worked on the first Heads-Up-Display… That was so cool, I got to meet Ralf Schumacher!”
The second thing he said he was proud of was his work validating design’s impact on business. This is modest. Soren was to design what Steve Wozniak was to computers. After receiving a degree in both engineering and design, he spent over three decades researching design, (10 years working at BMW), and received a PhD from Stanford in Design Quantification. When Soren began his career, design was seen as a disposable service. While many people helped make it essential to business, very few could show how. By studying successful methods from design, engineering and business, Soren created an algorithm able to predict an entrepreneur’s chances of receiving initial funding that was accurate close to 80% of the time. Soren validated that design was a quantifiable science as well as an art form.
Soren and his wife, Marysia, began “Crowd-sourcing” long before the term was coined. In the days when computers were green type on black screens, he came across an automobile chat room and became fascinated with the way people shared things and collected feedback for a car company he was working for. One day after hours of waiting for someone to mention his company, he said he was about to give up when Marysia came in to let him know dinner was ready. After he explained what he was trying to do, she asked if she could add a comment. Marysia jumped on the computer and asked what people thought of his company. Then they went to eat. When he returned to the screen, hundreds of comments awaited. The car company wasn’t quite prepared to hear how much customers disliked their cars, but Soren pioneered part of what would eventually become CrowdSourcing
(Editor’s note: To read the rest of this inspiring article click on, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/5930c85de4b062a6ac0ace76)

(Editor’s note: Marysia was kind enough to send along a link to the video of the memorial service for Soren. See and hear how this wonderful man embraced life as told by family and friends.)

Marysia

Dear Friends and Family,

Soren's memorial service was a  wonderful celebration of his life...

Velvette De Laney, Principal Designer & Owner l dewdropstudios- “Hi Tony, Here's my post-graduation blurb…Hi fellow Schmoozfesters! I hope you're all well.

I did it! I completed my Master of Fine Arts degree in Design Research and Development this month at OSU. I'm now working on getting Venture Capital funding to turn my thesis research into a tech start-up. The research was initially on developing a tool to help Graphic Designers become more environmentally sustainable in their practice. I then developed a Journey Map that articulates a path that Designers, Clients. Vendors, and other stakeholders can take to become more sustainable. Since graduating, I've refocused the tool to help environmental managers of larger companies manage print projects. Fingers crossed I'll have really good news to report the next time I attend a Schmoozfest! I'll be staying in town for a while (rent is cheap and Columbus isn't so bad - there are a lot of hairy hipsters, though!), but I hope one day to move back home. Meanwhile, someone please give both Tony and Paula a big hug for me!”
