About > Activities
For me everything began with the love for traveling and the wish to ban the unknown and fascinating - people, landscapes, situations - in pictures. Meanwhile I am a freelance photographer working in the fields of people and fashion as well as nature and urban/ urbex. Whats left is the love for strong composition and mostly decent colours. And I like the little strange, absurd and bizarre things for their beauty.
I have lots of art I've created over the past few years that I have not yet uploaded to ArtFlakes but can be viewed at www.coroflot.com/marydolan or www.marydolan.imagekind.com. I am happy to upload anything from those portfolio sites to ArtFlakes anytime...Just contact me!
I often find myself inspired by nature and other uniquely beautiful elements that I come across in my everyday life. I explore that inspiration through sketching and photography that I can further embellish and manipulate in Photoshop and Illustrator. I hope to one day be involved in the creation of textiles due to my love of pattern making.
The uneasy coexistence between human populations and the natural world interests me as a photographer. I lived for many years in coastal southern New Jersey, where I was drawn aesthetically to the ordered pilings, decaying buildings and piers, dune fences, structural debris, and kitsch of my seaside town. Deeply influenced by Michael Kenna’s work, I came to favor long exposures in low light as I examined the interaction between wind, waves, salt, and the human footprint. I recently relocated to the San Francisco Bay area, where I look forward to exploring my new environment. I am particularly intrigued by the ambiguous quality of everyday objects encountered at the water’s edge between twilight and dawn, and the tension between the elements and human expectations of permanence and control. I have come to think of the images as "melancholigraphs".
Illustrating today, with yesterday's memories
Alexandros Papalexis uses the collage technique on a large scale, in order to create many of his illustrations. Apart from the photography material (which is in many cases very old), he uses prints, symbols, letters, historical machine designs, maps and his own natural designs. We could maybe say that he uses his own childhood memories, but he doesn't stop there. One could say that within his every work, design, typography and photography are running through the centuries with a sense of romance and nostalgia for everything that has been lost and is no longer around us (apart from some that are being kept in museums). Above all, it is clear from his work that design has been evolved through the centuries in the most important language in this world, the language of heart, imagination, sensitivity and change.

I'm a German artist and trained ceramic painter with a degree in Comparative Literature, working primarily in ink, pastels and colored pencils. Creating pictures is my life, and keeps me sane. There is nothing more rewarding for me than getting lost on the page and story of a new drawing. I like to think of my pictures as little "escapes" from reality where it's possible for fish to fly and for girls to ride on sea horses high above the city. I have been published in online and actual art magazines, and participated in exhibitions within Germany.
