ROSEMARY FEIT COVEY’s “North Pole Series”

15 Mar
 
About ROSEMARY FEIT COVEY’s “North Pole Series”-
Visiting the North Pole is a life changing experience. Seeing vastness of the ice flow and lonely pursuit for food of the polar bear is very different from seeing the usual frolicking bears in picture postcards. It is a majestic and unforgiving environment.
The five large ice panels in the series, combine wood engravings, painting and plastics to create an abstracted version of the arctic landscape.  Several smaller pieces depict the bears themselves. The use of plastics to create this series of work was included as both a relevant, thematic and artistic decision.  Plastics are oil products and both literally (floating around in the water) and in terms of drilling raise issues of global consequence. Transparent sheets of plastic and store carry bags add texture and layering. Producing a  translucent  quality which adds surface interest and the effect of light on the ice and water. – ROSEMARY FEIT COVEY, 2016

ROSEMARY FEIT COVEY filmed for Damel Dieng’s The One Art Project. The One Art Project explores the meaning of art through a collection of video portraits of artists from around the world.

 

THE ONE ART PROJECT
“The thing itself is one, the images are many. What leads to a perceptive understanding of the thing is not the focus on one image but the viewing of many images together.” Rudolf Steiner

What is art? How is it so universal, and yet interpreted so differently by artists around the world? Why is it so important to all cultures around the world? Who are artists and why do they create? Who better than artists themselves to answer these fundamental questions? The One Art Project explores the meaning of art through a collection of video portraits of artists from around the world. By seeking artists’ profiles that are as diverse as possible across nationalities, cultural backgrounds and mediums, the project is also an exploration of humanity’s diversity through art. The goal of the project is to create a collection of at least a hundred portraits of artists from around the world. I hope this project contributes to a better understanding of art and what drives artists to embark on their creative endeavors. I hope it promotes art and motivates people to learn more about artists and their work. I hope it inspires artists and aspiring artists of all ages. I hope it also promotes the importance of learning from our differences and sheds light on the beauty and importance of diversity.

Damel Dieng Creator & Producer of The One Art Project

ABOUT THE FILMMAKER
Lucien Dieng aka Damel is an artist photographer and filmmaker based in Washington D.C. He started his career in visual arts in Dakar, Senegal in 2001 as a computer graphist in the first cartoon studio in West Africa. He worked for local tv stations, video production studios and as a freelancer in video editing, motion graphics, 2D and 3D animation and directing on a variety of projects. In 2007 he co-founded a local production company with a friend, which they ran successfully until 2011, when Damel moved to the US. In parallel Damel’s passion for photography grew steadily from his first shots in 2003 to his first exhibition  in 2010 during the Dakar Art Biennial in Senegal. Art has always been a passion for him. His self-taught background encouraged him into insightful conversations with artists and visual craft professionals. Such exchanges and his passion for filmmaking and storytelling ultimately led to the creation of The One Art Project.
