Linda Bock-Hinger loves to travel and record people and places around the world. Her photos chronicle her global travels from Australia to Zanzibar. Ms. Bock-Hinger’s work has been shown in solo exhibitions, juried art and photography shows, public buildings and museums, private homes, corporate offices, and several publications in this country and others. Her international photographs have won many awards and prizes.
Ms. Bock-Hinger explains, “It starts with opening the mind and heart along with the eye to capture a feeling, then I catch it with my camera.” She has photographed Masai tribes in East Africa, villages in the Middle East and China, ancient ruins in Cambodia, temples in India, labyrinth souks in Morocco, wild animal safaris on the Serengeti, dancers in Bali, pyramids in Egypt, fishermen on the Amazon River, and Native Americans at PowWow. Her photographs aim to make the viewer feel a connection to her subjects and thereby experience their lives and places in the world. In her travels around the world, Ms. Bock-Hinger has had the opportunity to meet many people and learn of cultures and lifestyles different from her own, at the same time learning how similar we all are in hopes, dreams, and values.
Linda Bock-Hinger went from photography as avocation to profession after her retirement in 2000 from a career in education. She has studied photography and art and now combines them into artography which uses photographs as the cornerstone of her mixed media work. Currently both of her art forms may be seen and purchased in solo and group art shows and galleries. She also teaches photography.Read more...
Born and raised in NJ, Ms. Eberenz has enjoyed art – whether drawing, painting, or other artistic pursuits – from a very young age.
While her “day job” as a marketing communications manager makes use of her creative skills, after a 15-year absence from painting, she has rediscovered the unmatched joy and freedom painting gives her. It provides a creative outlet for her emotions and thoughts – whether it’s capturing the transcendence and emotion of light and colors in a traditional still life, the beauty of nature, or a more abstract expression.
“In our fast-paced, multi-tasking world, the concentration and single-mindedness painting demands also provides a release – as well as its inherent challenges,” she states.
In 2010, Ms. Eberenz began studying at the Morris County Art Association with Diana K. Gibson, a recognized and award-winning painter who studied under internationally known artist John Phillip Osborne. She has enjoyed working both solo and surrounded by other artists. “Consulting with other artists provides fresh ideas and perspectives that push me to do things I wouldn’t have tried on my own, helping me to grow and discover new inspiration,” she says.
Of her painting, Ms. Eberenz writes, “At the core of all my paintings is the desire to capture the simple beauty of the things I see – with color and its interplay with light being the thing that captivates me. To me, color is one of life’s greatest gifts. Some of my earliest memories are strongly associated with colors. And the intensity of color found only in nature inspires me most. While most of my work to date has been traditional in subject and style, I have recently begun to explore more abstract and contemporary styles including the expression of emotions utilizing color and abstractions of images in nature. Sharing my passion for art and its gifts is one of my lifelong desires.”Read more...
