Who knew I had so much to say? 22 pages worth!

Art Habens magazine

I was thrilled to be selected for a 22-page article in the international contemporary art review magazine Art Habens.  Picked to be featured in their Biennial Anniversary edition (10 years and going strong), I was given one of their longest spreads ever!

In the magazine interview, we touch on the way my artistic inquiry explores the elusive connection between reality and the dream-like. We touch how I became an artist and the people who influenced me. And finally, we discuss whether it’s important for the viewer to understand my artwork’s meaning when viewing it or if they should determine the meaning for themselves.

Exploring themes linked to social issues

June 2017 Issue of Not Random Art

My artwork is featured this month in the June 2017 issue of Not Random Art, an international online magazine.

This contemporary art review was created to present the artwork of contemporary emerging artists to an international audience.

The artwork explores themes inextricably linked to modern society’s most significant issues. The June issue focuses on the problems with communication and identity.

It’s not the cover of Time magazine but it’s a start

I made the front cover of Time!  Okay, more accurately, I’m featured in an article about me and my art in the Times Ledger (a neighborhood paper in Queens).  In the March 28 – April 3 edition, there is a small notice on the front page directing readers to page 41 in the arts section and the full article.  My fifteen minutes of fame has  arrived =).  Of course, they printed the photo of my painting “Circle Invasion” in the article…UPSIDE DOWN!  That will teach us abstract painters to label our paintings “This side up!”  Still, I’m thrilled to get the publicity.  Here’s the weblink to the article:  http://www.timesledger.com/stories/2014/13/kathyferguson_2014_03_28_q.html
