Art Donation to Raise Funds for Leukemia and
July 10, 2010, USA:
The TNT North Metro Training Team will be holding a silent auction and concert at the D-Note in Olde Town Arvada on July 10th from 7:30pm to 10:00 pm. Each team member will be procuring silent auction donations from various local vendors and these items will be displayed so people can bid on them throughout the evening. Three of Manick Sorcar's artwork will be auctioned: "Staring at Sky", "Mother Teresa", and "Silhouette", each of distinctly separate character. The proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
"Staring at Sky", digital art on computer. Explains Manick "The procedure is the same as with
traditional watercolor or acrylic paint, except that the colors are picked up from an electronic palette,
the painting brush is an electronic pen, and the canvas is the digital tablet ".
"Mother Teresa" , a news-art by Manick Sorcar, where newspaper pieces are collaged for the art.
This was the first portrait where Manick used newspaper pieces carrying the story about her. They were imported
India, where she first started her charity order. "For shades, I searched several newspapers to find flaws in ink impressions. The font size, ink darkness, quality of the print, and even the color of the actual newsprint had a significant role in creating the relief and 3-D effect", explains Sorcar.
"Silhouette", a laser-art by Manick Sorcar.
Laser is to Manick what a wand is to a magician. He uses it as a brush to paint a picture. The effects
are so stunning that it is hard to imagine the complexity that lies beneath. Explains Manick, "Laser art is not a standard computer graphic or an image that is projected on a screen from a slide projector. Instead, it is a single beam of laser that actually connects a series of electronic points in a high speed along the lines
of the art work drawn
with a digital pen".
