Sylviane Girard


Tu marches ,
l'ombre t'imagine 
elle se glisse en toi 
tu cèdes à ses caresses 
tu t'égares dans son grand manteau ,
elle dégrafe ta tunique l'air de la nuit s'échappe
le ciel s'allume au lointain
il y a l'aurore
il y a le matin .

Le sommeil sera traversé des pensées .

La fleur qui aimait le noir 
partait toujours à la recherche des lumières arc en ciel 
elle cheminait sur un réflecteur humain 
elle semait au coin des routes .


En quête de la nuit de l’âme, de la soif inextinguible, du désir inassouvi. Qu’on me donne des visages magiques, pas des hot dogs, dans cette nuit ténébreuse. Qu’on me donne des têtes travaillées, des yeux de sphinx, poursuite inégalée de quelque chose ou de quelqu’un qui n’est de nulle part.
Journal - Alejandra Pizarnik

Interview with TREVOR WAYNE

q)Please introduce yourself and tell us something about yourself and

your background.

a)Im Trevor Wayne. I started doing art as a little kid inspired by Saturday Morning Cartoons. It led me to liking to do a lot of portraiture. I attended art school in Chicago and then moved to Los Angeles where I live currently.

q) Talk about your art.

a)Although my favorite art genre is French Impressionism, I identify with Pop Art because of the cartoons that had inspired me as a kid. I really liked the solid lines and colors, and the many ways that characters were drawn in so many different styles from show to show.
 A decade ago I switched from pencils to digital, really liking the very flat comic-like feel to my portraits. I even liked better that there was no texture.
 Through the years as my work circulated more, people often asked to buy the originals- of which there was none since it was digital. They often seemed dismissive and disappointed. I was told more that a few times that if I painted, people would be more into what I do, and that digital art is not “real” art.
 Eventually, feeling I needed a change anyway, I gave in and tried it. I actually found I prefer it! I really like the way it feels. As more time went on, people still believed my paintings were digital! I can’t win! So I decided to start painting on the backs of the canvas.
 I intended it to be an aggressive way of showing it was indeed canvas, and actually made the canvas itself important to the piece. It works really well for the series of dolls  (and some action figures) I’m doing. Its taking antique imagery, creating it to be a pop version, and painting it traditionally in a non traditional way. I like to think of it as “Popressionism”!

q) What’s the central theme of your work?

a)The central theme of my work really is to just lighten the mood! I want my art to bring good energy to the space it inhabits. Whatever the subject matter may be.

q) your most beautiful dream

a)I think that would be owning a few little cabins,, maybe one in the desert and one in the mountains,, and being able to jump back and forth and paint with beautiful views and isolation!

q) your worst nightmare

a)Im not really sure. I don't like to spend any time giving energy to thoughts like that. Im not sure I want to dig thoughts like that up! haha

q) Best way to spend a day off?

a)For me the best day off is a day trip to another town, a nice hotel with a bar by the pool. Id probably still bring some art to work on…

q) who, what inspires you ….

a)Im inspired by friends, even if what they do is different. Im glad to see them working hard for what they're passionate about. That makes me want to work harder at what I do.

q) books that you love….

a)Im not really a reader, since I have little time, but my “Golden Heroes” artwork was just in the book “Golden Girls Forever” by Jim Colucci! Its an in depth behind the scenes look at the show. I read the whole thing quickly. I love that show, and if you do you should get the book as well! Its on Amazon!

Interview with ROBERTA MARRERO

q)Walk us through an intimate day in your life:

a)Well, I am afraid I have a pretty boring life. I wake up, I use to go out in the morning to ship pieces to customers. I cook, I work, I read, I watch this moment of my life I live almost like a nun and I like it.

q) Where did you grow up/where do you live now and how does that contribute to your art?:

a)I was born in Spain and I grew up there. I have been living in London and now I live in Copenhagen. Spain is very catholic and when I was born Franco (the dictator) was still ruling the country. He died when I was 3 years old but his influence marked my childhood and teenager years, it was not easy for anybody outsider to live there back then. These two circumstances had a big impact on me making me use catholic imagery in a very profane way and hating anything fascist.

q) What is your earliest memory that propelled you to create?:

a)Marvel comics.

q) Tell us a little bit about your creative process:

a)I have and idea and I put that idea on paper. I work almost like in a trance and I don't stop until is finish.

q) How do you wish for your art to be perceived?:

a)I like my work to be open to interpretations. Every viewer has a different perception of everything, that is very interesting.

q) What do your internal dialogues sound like?:

a)Chaos under control.

q) Do you feel that there are limitations to what you want to create?:


q) Do you feel art is vital to survival and if so, why?:

a)In my case it is because it is what I can do and what I need to do. When I am working I don't think about anything else.

q) Describe a world without art:

a)Sad, boring, empty.

q) Tell us a secret, and obsession:

a)If I tell you a secret then it wouldn't be a secret. I have an obsession with books and dolls.

q) Where can people see more of your work on the internet?:
