Holly Hoyt: Holly Hoyt-Miscovich has developed a keen business acumen while distinguishing herself as an innovative, sought-after artist. After opening a boutique photography studio, Holly began receiving notoriety for the technical proficiency of her work. While Holly possesses an innate ability to partner with her clients to achieve thematically striking compositions, she finds that her greatest passion lies in her personal ventures; specifically, the invention and development of a wholly new artistic process called Temporal Bokeh. Temporal Bokeh is a technique that involves photographing original painted designs, while manipulating light refraction, to achieve a singularly unique final image. The frozen moments captured in each piece represents the sum total of hundreds of environmental variables – color Chroma, unique artificial light exposure and range of motion – that all align for a specific and compelling picture. This final image is then transferred onto metal. The carefully captured photograph is displayed on a durable canvas that will endure for years to come. Temporal Bokeh was created by Holly so pure forms of photographic artwork could exist without constraint, maintaining the energy and vibrancy of the original image. Despite Holly’s innovation in image and light manipulation, there’s still much for her to do. She will continue to indulge her creative, independent endeavors and she fully intends to explore color and light movement through her new series of works.
Mars Woodhill: Mars Woodhill’s art can be summarized as visual energy crystallized in paint. Whether viewed from up close or far away, it expresses passionate movement and the variation of color, texture, and opacity intrigues the beholder. Inspired by natural phenomena, Mars’ paintings tend to hint at biological, geological and even cartographical influences. When viewed, Mars’ work may suggest either the interior of a mineral formation, an astronaut’s view of an undiscovered world, or a new life form rising. Mars utilizes the fluid dynamics of paint to evoke the sensation of rapid motion or the brisance of an explosion or implosion. It is the sense of movement that provides the common link. Mars has begun an exploration of “reinvention”, expressed both in her paintings and in sculptures formed from paint that has escaped the boundaries of the canvases.
