The Endicott Studio of Mythical Arts "The Endicott Studio was founded by Terri Windling as a creative center devoted to modern Mythic Arts: literary, visual, and media art projects rooted in themes from folktales and myths. When first established in 1987, the Studio was based in New York and Boston. In 1991, Terri relocated and the Endicott Studio became transatlantic. Now it is based from spring to autumn on Dartmoor (Devon, England), a green land soaked in old Celtic myth -- and, during the winter months, in the Sonoran desert (Tucson, Arizona), a landscape colored by the living folklore of its Native and Mexican populations. Although originally a "one-woman shop," the Endicott Studio has grown in the last decade and now supports a variety of collaborative projects drawing upon the visions of mythic artists from both sides of the Atlantic."

     ARTIST STATEMENT: The methodology behind my work is to create a compositionally rich interplay of modernist elements that are exceptionally crafted to remove the hand of the artist. The purpose of this is to further emphasize the compositional qualities of the work. I also intend to make the work look manufactured, as though it was itself an industrial product, like the industrial forms that originally influenced it."

MPhoytos.com         Artist’s Statement: by Wayne Miller

-What is ordinary can become extraordinary, and what is extraordinary can become ordinary, our mind is the only vehicle for that transformation. -Wayne Miller-
Photography has always been a passion for me, and I especially enjoy Abstracts with brilliant colors.  I enjoy capturing images of light and color that make one think about one’s own life experiences as they relate to the photograph.  Clowns, nature, old/new buildings, landscapes, and cityscapes add such excitement to the possibilities in my photography.
As we view an image, we classify and form an opinion based on our own experiences.  What one person enjoys another dislikes is the concept behind Art and Photography.
If my work pleases your senses, great, and if it doesn’t, it is eminently possible it may be too profound! Either way an impression is rendered, and that is what art is all about.
In my twenties I enjoyed listing to Bob Dylan because his music has always awakened deep thoughts, and inspirations in me. Think outside the box, and follow your dreams. I find that “outside the box” is the path I like to venture on in photography.  That is why Abstract holds such a fascination in photography for me.  Each person sees something different, and to that I add…
”Enjoy life’s journey and the photo ops along the way”- Wayne Miller

Valentin Aleksandrovich Serov "Valentin Aleksandrovich Serov ((January 19, 1865 - December 5, 1911) was a Russian painter, and one of the premier portrait artists of his era.

Serov was born in St. Petersburg, son of the Russian composer Alexander Serov, and his wife Valentina Bergman, a composer of German-Jewish and English background. In his childhood he studied in Paris and Moscow under Ilya Repin and in the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts (1880-1885) under Pavel Chistyakov. Serov's early creativity was sparked by the realistic art of Repin and strict pedagogical system of Chistyakov. Further influences on Serov were the old master paintings he viewed in the museums of Russia and Western Europe, friendships with Mikhail Vrubel and (later) Konstantin Korovin, and the creative atmosphere of the Abramtsevo Colony, to which he was closely connected."

Thomas Philbrook's Artist Portfolio "MY PURPOSE — In recent years, my chosen medium has been the computer — And most often, in concert with photography. I’ve chosen to work digitally because of the incredible control it bestows upon me. And limitless opportunities. This can be a double-edged sword because with the infinite options it is very easy to become seduced by the technology, employing it for its own sake. As with any artistic medium, it is the obligation of the artist to fully grasp its capabilities, then ..."

Two Micron All Sky Survey at IPAC  "It has been nearly 30 years since the last large-area near-infrared survey of the sky was carried out. The Two Micron Sky Survey (TMSS; Neugebauer & Leighton 1969) scanned 70% of the sky and detected ~5,700 celestial sources of infrared radiation. Since that time there has been a revolution in the development of infrared detector technology. New, large format, sensitive array detectors can now detect astronomical objects over 100 million times fainter than those detected in the TMSS. "  Beautiful astronomical pictures!
