Urban Abstracts By Artist Marlene Burns

Artist Marlene Burns is pleased to feature her urban abstracts, diptychs, triptychs and compilations at a dedicated website. She is separating out this most recent work in photography to highlight her latest creative endeavor.

www.urbanabstracts.weebly.com

Marlene is 'painting' with abstract photographs that she has been taking for the past three years, on the city streets in various locations.

In taking the challenge to create new abstract compositions, Marlene's work has become that much stronger.

Traditionally a painter, she maintains her signature style of bold color and edgy design.

All of her work is available as fine art reproductions on a variety of papers, canvas, metal and fabric, in many sizes.

Author/Artist Warren Stokes Hustles Through All of Life’s Mazes

By Jamie Siebrase You can find art all over town — not just on gallery walls. In this series, we’ll be looking at some of the local artists who serve up their work in coffeehouses and other non-gallery businesses around town.

“Mazes are a metaphor for life — you run into a dead end, and then you start over and work to get out,” says Warren Stokes, a salesman and children’s book author who’s created his own style of art, one that a-mazes kids and adult enthusiasts alike at pubic forums as well as in his books.

Stokes knows a thing or two about running into dead ends. “I tried to start a magazine, and failed miserably,” he says, before admitting that he’s currently sitting on two unpublished novels and was initially told by a slew of agents that there wasn’t a market for his children’s books.

He’s since published fifty of those children’s books; they’re the reason he got into drawing, he...

303 Magazine Interview

April 7th, 2015 - Denver, Co

303 Magazine Interview

On an icy Denver evening in the dead of winter, I was welcomed into the warm and bustling home of an artist named Warren Stokes. As his three boys sat around eating dinner, the boys’ mother—Stokes’ college sweetheart—apologized for their house not being tidy. She mentioned that they would be moving at the end of the week. Blown away by a family that would invite me into their home, at dinnertime, on moving week, immediately set the tone for the interview—these were some seriously kind people.

As Stokes and I settled onto the living room floor, we began talking about everything from his artwork to how he met the beautiful mother of his children, Shana. Stokes’ incredible passion and charisma was instantly clear. And I was hardly surprised when he mentioned his sons as his biggest source of inspiration.

Stokes has penned many children’s books and bases them off the conversations, musings and lessons that he has with his own sons. Stokes’ formal education is in Public...

Bring in a pop of colours in your room! This wall art is what anyone would love to have in their house. Once you learn how easily it can be made, you would want one right away!

R.G. Endres Gallery May Art Show May 8th

R.G. Endres Gallery May Art Show May 8th

In May, I will be releasing an entire new collection of figure work. I have created figures of all shapes, styles, and eras and will be unveiling them during the month of May at the R. G. Endres Gallery - located at the Municipal offices of Prairie Village. It took me two years to earn a spot at this location and I finally accomplished it!

I have always wanted to move more in the direction of figure work. I call the series, reneinment dehors (french for breaking out). This is a series about simplicity and balance. These elusive, abstract, images portray shape and form in a simple, vibrant way. The simplicity of each figure is key to the work. I strive for simplicity and balance in my own life personally and I tried to incorporate that into this series. I enjoy allowing people to insert themselves into each piece, taking themselves on as the figure in their own personal way. I have created most of this work with only a palette knife because it allows me to define the...
