Cosmosys Exhibition XVII: Alpha and Omega

Cosmosys Exhibition XVII: Alpha and Omega

Cosmosys is proud to present to you their seventeenth exhibition; ALPHA AND OMEGA. The most common association that people have with Alpha and Omega are the beginning and the end. Alpha is the first letter in the Greek alphabet, Omega the last. Beginning and ending. With this pack Cosmosys proves it’s far from its ending with 20+ stunning pieces of artwork that either show the start or the end of all. Tidings of the apocalypse, stories of creation and everything in between. Cosmosys delivers, as usual. For this theme we decided to highlight the astounding efforts of BXD, otherwise known as Brandon Duffy; who has awed us all with his outstanding contribution to this pack and the amazing works he has produced for Cosmosys for the last year. We decided to get a closer look on him; read his interview here! All being said and done: Witness the beginning, witness the end. Witness Cosmosys’ 17th Exhibition; Alpha and Omega!

Finding My Focus

Finding My Focus

Six months ago, I felt like I couldn’t pay anyone to hire me. I mean, I guess that kind of defeats the point, but I was getting pretty frustrated. After getting pregnant with my second, I’d decided to do the whole stay-at-home mom thing while using my freelancing to make up the difference between my fiance’s income and what we needed to get by. It sounded like the perfect solution- a win-win for everyone- so shortly before he was due to be born I quit my 9-5. I’d had good luck getting jobs consistently before, and I figured that by putting in even more work I’d be able to get more jobs. … Not so much. I’d spend hours scouring the deviantART job forums, Elance, FurAffinity, and anywhere else I thought there was even a small chance I might find some work. I’m ashamed to admit that I even got desperate enough to try a few contests on 99Designs, as much as it bothers me to do unpaid spec work. (As a side note, that’s really not something I would recommend for anyone- artist or client. Clients, find an artist based on their portfolio; that’s why we have them. You’ll get better work and build better business relationships. Artists, don’t devalue yourself or your industry. You’re worth much more than maybe getting some money if you win. This is a great article about why.) Back to the point, even with all of that I was only getting maybe one or two jobs a month. It wasn’t really enough to help us get by. I was getting frustrated and very disheartened, and I was starting to worry...
Cosmosys Exhibition XVI: AISTHETIKOS

Cosmosys Exhibition XVI: AISTHETIKOS

With the world around us being vast and beautiful and our artists scattered amongst it; “Aisthetikos” was quite a natural choice after being indulged in our third Experiments exhibition. Therefore Cosmosys is delighted to release its Sixteenth Exhibition: Aisthetikos. With a set of varying disciplines which makes Cosmosys great, the various interpretation of our collective’s artists on the world is nothing short of astounding and desperately in need to be shown to the world through the eyes, brushes and lenses of both veteran artists and newcomers. Events like sunrise, dusk, nightfall. Soaring to high skies and diving in deep oceans. Asking ourselves questions on the way we see the world around and each other. Figuring out the meaning behind beauty, even when the context can be devastating and finally the way in which beauty that is so easily forgotten these days. We answer these questions in the way that Cosmosys does best; by making high quality artwork. For this Exhbition we decided to underline the talent of Kuldar Leement; with two absolutely stunning commissions to this exhibition and an amazing track record at Cosmosys, it was as natural to feature him this exhibition as it was to decide the theme for it. We ask you kindly to sit tight; hold to your hoists and indulge yourself in the beauty of things with Exhibition 16: Aisthetikos.
