Tom Mulczynski

Email: tom_mulczynski@yahoo.com

The focus of Tom’s creative efforts at present is on sculpting abstracted representations of trees, iconic symbols of life and nature, from various types of metal wire.  Drawn to the expressive power of trees, he likes to experiment with different styles and materials to express some basic truth or feeling: freedom, death, whimsy.  He draws his inspiration from the simplicity of classical Zen-inspired depictions of nature, and from singular trees that catch his eye, and hopes to inspire in the observer an increased awareness of self and of nature.  He is a self-trained artist who occasionally dabbles in acrylic paint and other media.

Bryan Jernigan’s process has always been about exploration. It’s not surprising to those who know him that his breadth of experience ranges from traditional landscapes to figures and to non-representational abstraction. “I’ve always said I’m less of a painter and more of an experimenter.”
Most recently, his process cycles between small, traditional pastel landscapes and large non-representational paintings. “Once I complete a set of landscapes in pastel that take their own kind of concentration, the last thing I want to do is another one. So I cycle into large abstracts that are just as challenging, but in a different way to the landscapes. I think it keeps my work in both areas fresher.”
While Jernigan is an abstractionist at heart, most recently he has been trying to successfully bridge the gap between abstract and representational in both his landscapes as well as some figurative work. He uses acrylics in treatments of simple subjects in nature. Most recently, he has been focusing on trees and their surrounding landscapes using bold strokes and color in both painterly and palette knife techniques. While he adheres to art’s founding principles – line, shape, form, space, and value – he purposefully leaves his imagery simplistic because color is the star.
Jernigan’s work is influenced by the Fauvists and by contemporary artists including Richard Diebenkorn, Wolf Kahn, and contemporary painter William Wray.
Jernigan teaches abstract painting for the Art League of Alexandria and recently won a grant from the City of Alexandria to create 50 different pastel landscapes. His work is held in private and corporate collections in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Brazil and Japan. Jernigan, who has a Master of Arts degree, was born in Little Rock, Arkansas and raised in Oklahoma before moving to metropolitan Washington, DC. more than 28 years ago.

Jernigan gladly accepts abstract painting commissions and landscape commissions in pastel. Please contact him at bkjartist@gmail.com for more information.

Now, as a more experimental painter, she enjoys seeing what happens when she makes “homemade” papers, which she uses in collage. Her goal in her artwork is to maintain the spontaneous and transparent quality, while capturing ephemeral subjects.
Elisabeth has served as President of the Arlington Artists Alliance, and has been a member of numerous other local arts organizations. She has been represented in the past by The Artists Undertaking in Occoquan, Stifel and Capra in Falls Church, and is now represented by the Gallery Underground in Arlington.
