February Artist of the Month - Kira Ayn Varszegi

 February Jerrys Artarama Artist of the Month



Kira Ayn Varszegi - Hartford, CT

I'm a self-taught, self-representing professional artist/photographer, best known for my breast paintings and past collaborative projects with Koopa the turtle (now retired from painting.) My body of work is largely abstract and colorful with neutrals available somewhat rarely. I've been offering fine art breast paintings on eBay since 2001. I'm the first internet-based professional to treat the method as a fine art rather than a novelty/fundraiser/fetish. I enjoy working in different styles and finding new ways to get my medium onto my support. I paint with brushes, palette knives, various body parts, fruits & vegetables, and toys (wind-up, RC, etc.) Familiar mediums include oil, acrylic, tempera, gouache, enamel, crayons,cocoa, coffee, red wine, strawberries/cherries/blueberries and melted chocolate.

Much of my work is the result of experimentation with elements, heat, time, gravity, acceleration, and trial & error. My photography is varied - nature, industrial, scenic, macro, long-exposure, B&W, abstract, tasteful self-portraiture, candid, low-light, and sometimes digitally manipulated. A varied, complementary palette and well-balanced composition are essential to me, whether on canvas or in a photograph.

My inspiration doesn't come from other other art or artists. Imitation is NOT "the sincerest form of flattery" when self-proclaimed "artists" constantly steal your ideas. Violations of intellectual property hurt real artists and mislead potential collectors. The human mind is a constantly-evolving source of infinite creative possibilities. Unique ideas/execution, honesty, perseverance, a dash of insanity, and/or technical skill are what define a true artist to me.

I'll wander into gray areas, offend a few people, make mistakes, learn from them, doubt myself & master obscurity out of a mutual fear of failure and success. I'll continue to create from my heart, evolve, experiment, challenge myself, be charitable, and strive to experience a sense of accomplishment that can only be achieved by following my dreams.

Aside from art, I'm a freshwater fishing addict who aspires to become a fully-sponsored Bassmaster one day. I'm also a fan of baseball, science, cryptograms, my husband, geek culture, bacon, Hitchcock movies, skepticism & console gaming (mainly the FPS and puzzle genres.) Currently I'm playing Modern Warfare on PS3 and Modern Warfare 2 on XBL - my GT is TurtleKiss on both systems. :-)

Attached are 5 of my original breast paintings ("New Hope" series - created using only my breasts) and 5 other assorted paintings - all created without the use of a brush.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
Kira Ayn Varszegi

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest factor to consider of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as other people think about concerns that they just do not recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you

I'll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
