2016 ARTISTS

 

Lynette K Stephenson is a painter and professor of art from Colgate University in New York. Her studio practice is interested in revealing the allure of ordinary, discarded objects, which she transforms through her artwork, commenting on the beauty of everyday life. The paintings she made during the residency were composed of materials that were found in the village. - http://lynettestephenson.com

Her chandelier installation, “Your Neon Love Will Shine”, was the third in a series, the first chandelier was photographed in the Black Forest, the second in a castle in Spain, and the last, influenced by the movie Xanadu, was installed during the residency at Psarapoula Beach on Crete. The series is about fairy tales and the narrative of romance. - http://www.mirandaclark.com

 

2015 Artists

 

Madeleine Boucher -Studio + Workshop Residency - Brooklyn, NY, USA - http://www.mboucherartwork.com

Jenny and Varvara created a unique environment that I have never found equalled in the twenty years of my life I have participated in art programs: hands-off, and yet structured; never pushing, instead, inspiring. My goal for the Mudhouse Residency was to regain my confidence in painting and drawing from direct observation by taking classes with Jenny, and by working in the studio, to rediscover my artistic self-discipline (lapsed since my full time job began). It’s hard to explain how being in Agios Ioannis inspires and focuses you—it’s an exquisitely beautiful place, and the Mudhouse itself has to be seen to be believed. During my time there, I could channel that incredible sensory overload of being in a simultaneously new and very old and beautiful place into making artwork. It was as though everything else became quiet. The Mudhouse Residency was an incredible boost to my practice, I made more there in just two short weeks than I can in half a year at home, and I came back feeling relaxed but energized, focused and full of motivation to keep working.

mudhouse INSTRUCTORS

 

Varvara Liakounakou was born in Athens, Greece. She received her diploma in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy, where she studied painting from 1997-2001. Her paintings are based on her drawings, which begin as doodlings, inspired by human nature. To create atmosphere and expression around her abstraction of the figure, the drawings build upon themselves with layers and layers of line, and she uses many transparent layers of oil colors and oil pastels to translate a similar drawn quality to painting. She has taught painting and drawing for the past five years in Athens, Greece at a private institute. Currently she is the Assistant Curator for a private Greek collector in Athens. Varvara has exhibited at the Art Space 24 in Athens, the Muiler Muiler Gallery in Belgium, the Agora Gallery in Chelsea, New York and the Galleria de Marchi in Bologne, Italy. Her work was shown in the First International Biennale of Santorini in 2012. She was nominated as one of the upcoming female Greek artists to watch by the curator Elizabeth Plessa in Alexandra Koroksenidi’s article, “Let’s Talk About Art Now: The (six) Young Greek Artists Today That We Will Be Talking About Tomorrow” (transl.) Nov. 2013. She currently lives and works in Athens and South Crete.

Jenny Carolin received her Masters in Fine Arts with a concentration in Painting from Syracuse University, and her Bachelors in Fine Arts from the Columbus College of Art and Design. A background in ballet and the desire to find movement and expression in two dimensional work led her to expand her practice to include performance, video and installation. The fictive characters she creates in her performances come to life through drawings, paintings and prints, as she weaves together the story of their lives and escapades. She has taught Figure Drawing, Foundation Drawing and Drawing and Painting for Non-Art Majors for the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University. Currently she participates in the day to day operation of the artist co-operative printmaking facility Shoestring Press, in Brooklyn, New York, as the Director of Educational Programming and an Instructor of Studio Art. Honors include a residency grant at the Stonehouse Residency for the Contemporary Arts in Miramonte, CA, the Jerome Solomon Foundation Grant, and the Jan T. Posey Foundation Grant.  She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, USA.
