It all starts with inspiration….

Liberty Blvd Series # 2, Sona MirzaeiInspiration…its what propels artists to create…but it’s often different for many people. Santa Monica Art Studios will be featuring works by several artists this Saturday, December 7th. Here’s a look at how two artists are affected by inspiration.

For Sona Mirzaei, a visit to San Francisco’s MOMA made a big impact on her. She explains, “It was inspiring, sometimes you can see a painting or a particular artist’s work a thousand times and it is always a different effect and the evolution of the interpretation, experience and connection are always changing, yet still a beautiful magical feeling. Jay Defeo work really stood out on this trip and was impacting as well as well as seeing Yayoi Kusama’s latest works. Kusama’s journey, life, spirit, creativity, and her passion is encouraging for any artist and eAerial view, Big Sur, Scott Tanseyspecially emerging artists to never give up on your work and life pursuit.â€

She continues, “In addition to these amazing women that have led the way for female artists, I am always moved by the establishers of abstract contemporary artwork, during my SF MOMA visit, I re-experienced Jasper Johns and Rauchenberg together which is a cosmic feeling for modern artists. Outside of the museum world, an emerging mid-level artist, Alex Couwenberg works caught my eye and is currently having an exhibition at the Andrea Schwartz Gallery in San Francisco. The symmetry, colors, patterns, etc. in his work is so vibrant, bold, and a unique concept and design execution which was motivating and inviting. I love seeing new works that look original and have their own variation of themes and speak to someone – that’s inspiring.†Sona is scheduled to show her work at Wallspace Gallery in 2014.

Landscape photographer, Scott Tansey also finds inspiration while visiting galleries and museums. He recently attended an exhibition at the Peter Fetterman Gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica. “I saw the Salgado show…Great images of Creation.â€

Tansey has been shooting landscapes for over 40 years. Inspired by photographers, such as Ernst Haas, Ansel Adams and Minor White, he consistently travels to far-off place to find that perfect shot. Photography is a time consuming art and takes patience…waiting for the right light, that perfect shot…knowing what to shoot. For Tansey, he finds it’s all about instinct. “It sounds strange, but it is mostly instinct, cites Tansey. “I go through different periods. I am ending a Los Angeles Panorama Project.†The photographer will be showing his aerial views of the Central California Coast in the exhibition.

Tansey currently has his photography on view at Figtree’s Café, located at 429 Ocean Front Walk in Venice. He is happy to be a part of the holiday show at the Santa Monica Art Studios. For more info about Scott Tansey, see his website at http://scotttanseyphoto.com/

The work of both artists can be seen this Saturday December 7th from 6:00 p.m. –9:00 p.m. at the opening reception for the Santa Monica Art Studios holiday show. SMAS is located at 3026 Airport Avenue in Santa Monica 90405). The exhibition will be on view through December 22. http://www.santamonicaartstudios.com/
