Curator's Note

 

“The 8th issue of Circle Quarterly Art Review includes 92 visual artists from around the globe working in a variety of styles and disciplines. When selecting the artworks for the pages of this issue, my goal was to provide a multiplicity of approaches of bold, distinctive pieces that each show a high level of technique, creativity and uniqueness. In synthesizing the selection to produce a cohesive anthology, I look for unity which may come from obvious harmonies in color, composition, media, concept or context, but most often I find balance in striking contrast. For me, the artworks in this issue could easily be a traveling exhibition or a personal collection that comprehensively describes the story of what art looks like today. I encourage the readers to visit each artist’s website to see more of their art and contact them directly to collect a piece. We often consider buying an artwork as an investment or for decoration, but as I see it, welcoming a piece that “spoke” to you into your home, will create a type of companionship that can deeply impact your daily mood and for years to come, the piece will continue to “speak” to you, saying something different every day.”
