A recent collaboration between Blazing Editions and Boston Art Inc. takes designing a stairwell for a Boston Law Firm to another level (literally)
Blazing Editions and Boston Art Inc have teamed up to produce an exquisite installation at a Boston Law Firm. Amounting to a total of thirty panels (all printed on dye sublimated aluminum, 38x80" each), the design incorporates images representing all varieties of people living and working in the Greater Boston Area. Quintessential landmarks, as well as spots often overlooked by tourists in surrounding areas are displayed. Trinity Church, Fields Corner MBTA Platform, the Charles River, Boston Tea Party ships, and The Holocaust Memorial are some examples of the areas included. Various images of roof-top locations such as Piers Park Sailing Center in East Boston are also incorporated.
The overall project sought to tie together the zone's architectural design (a four-story stairwell visible from high-traffic areas throughout the office) with the identity of the company inhabiting the space. After weeks of meticulous measuring, planning, and consulting, the stairwell has been transformed into an epic multi-layered, continuous photographic collage from top to bottom. With such a large space, maintaining a cohesive artistic design posed a bit of a challenge, especially due to the stairwell's constant visibility from so many key surroundings and levels. However with the combination of skill and hard work from installers, designers, and consultants, the final product is nothing less than stunning.

INSTALLATION AT ITALIAN VILLA
I use digital programs as if they were physical tools. Distorting, assembling, layering, feathering, scaling and changing opacity are my paintbrushes and the found imagery is my paint. This process deliberately reintroduces familiar strategies of chance, subconscious response and even physical gesture that the computer is conventionally supposed to have banished. Likewise, the resulting outputs (pigment print on canvas, diasec, paper and even glass) explore experiences of surface pioneered by modern artists and flattened to nothingness in a digital age.” - Irene Mamiye
My work often includes painterly pieces that blur the boundaries between photography and painting. Blazing uses good quality canvas and the printing is so expert. It fits perfectly with my collages which are found images of both photographs and paint strokes. Also, I love how archival the metal is and how deep the detail renders, and I find it far superior to chromogenic printing." - Irene Mamiye

ARTIST TALK & GALLERY TOUR: AUGUST 25 | 1:00PM
BLACKROCK CENTER FOR THE ARTS
BlackRock Center for the Arts is pleased to present the solo exhibition Jon Malis: “Transcolorations” in the Kay Gallery from Saturday, July 21 through Saturday, August 25, 2018. Malis will return to BlackRock to present an Artist Talk on Saturday, August 25 at 1:00 p.m. which will include tours of the exhibit. Both events are free and open to the public. Admission to the galleries at BlackRock is always free.
Malis has received numerous awards as well as being exhibited extensively in the Washington, DC region, nationally, and internationally; reviewed in the Washington Post and Naples Daily News; and featured on Maryland Public TV and PBS. Recently, he has participated in residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, Otis College of Art & Design (Los Angeles, CA) and the Slade School of Art in London.
Malis received a Master of Fine Arts in Film & Electronic Media from American University in 2011, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from The George Washington University in 2007. Currently, he holds an appointment as an Assistant Professor of Photography at Loyola University in Baltimore, Maryland and maintains his studio practice in both Baltimore and Washington, DC.
By way of background, I used to work as a news and sports photojournalist, where all I could control was the content of the image - I really had no control over how it was cropped/toned/sized/etc to fit inside the paper, once I shipped the image off my camera, I lost all that control. A lot of the work I'm making now is a bit of a response to that - thinking hard about "if I remove the content, what remains [of the image]." -Jon Malis
In terms of this specific body of work, I'm starting with these profiles as my source creative material, and am abstracting them into various layers of data visualization and abstract representationalism. One of the larger interests in my practice is thinking about the intersections between scientific visualization and visual art, their intersections, and when science "becomes" art (my MFA thesis dealt with a "forgotten" archive of brain tissue that, due to storage conditions, is no longer useful to science or medicine)." -Jon Malis
ICONIC IMAGES FROM TRANSCOLORATIONS
“When the light really turned on for us was when we did an installation for the Abington Hospital. It was such a game changer for me. Realizing that these installations could make such a difference. It was stunning for the employees and patients. A man with open heart surgery would spend his days in the hospital, walking up and down the halls admiring the art and said the works gave him will to live.” - Feo Pitcairn
“The notion of healing within a natural environment drove the design of the project. More than just locating an isolated healing garden, the client’s vision capitalized on the opportunity to reconnect the building inhabitants to an ecologically restored and vibrant landscape.” – Ewing Cole
“The images are so stunning – they have luminescence on metal that I haven’t seen in any other medium. You don’t have to have acrylic or museum glass in front that’s always reflective. I quite enjoy the marriage between the high end digital cameras and the metal substrate.” – Feo Pitcairn
THE ASPLUNDH CANCER PAVILION INSTALLATION
I have been an artist for almost 40 years, experimenting in all of the traditional mediums, oils, acrylic, watercolor etc. Then I discovered the digital world and there was no turning back, we've only just touched the surface of what's possible. I like metal because it gives my work a super high-definition, much like looking at an HD TV. What really intrigues me is the ability of the technology to re-produce exactly what I create, much more so than any other medium like lithographs, canvas etc."
In the late 80s Harlan, Martha & their two daughters relocated to a studio neat the Chesapeake Bay just outside Washington, DC. This was an ongoing source of inspiration for the next two decades. Currently, Harlan has his own studio in Carolina Beach, NC where a whole new appreciation for the water has remained a powerful muse for his current work.
Even After all these years, I feel that I've only scratched the surface, too many ideas and not enough time. To be allowed to pursue such a passion, I am truly grateful to my family and collectors around the world for letting me live my dream."

Deborah has been a dancer since she was 7. Her passion for this art has manifested its way into her photography. She began her photography career when she was injured as a dancer; photographing the rehearsals she could not participate in, due to her injury. After moving to New York City, working as a photo editor at magazines such as House & Garden, Mirabella and many others, she began shooting editorial work for Self, Health, Martha Stewart Living and Real Simple.
You're trying to strive for this perfection, but you still want people to get that illusion that your line never ends and that you never stop moving," American Ballet Dancer, Misty Copeland tells Harper's Bazaar
“Dance as an art form is bittersweet. On the one hand, its beauty is instantaneous and visceral, and on the other, it only exists in a very fleeting moment of ‘now’. That is part of the beauty and sadness of dance. What attracts me to photography is the beautiful balance between a passing moment in dance and one frozen in time…in a photograph that can live forever.” – Daniil Simkin, Principal, American Ballet Theatre

Once I know that the scene “needs” to be captured, my 40 years of experience with a camera kicks in. All decisions are made very deliberately.
“There is no thinking. I just move forward, trusting my instincts on how to align everything for a successful outcome. With years of experience, it has become second nature. Once the image is captured, the post-processing steps are handled with an equal level of intuition and attention to detailand technology.”
In the end, the final image reflects all the various steps, but it always starts with his passion for dynamic shapes, vibrant colors and graphic beauty. This enthusiasm combined with the best technology available, ultimately creates an artistic experience with the deliberate intention of inspiring his audience.
