Beware the Gambler by Hilary Morden

by Hilary Morden

Beware the Gambler
by Hilary Morden
Beware the Gambler; his cards fall like razor blades onto the faces of those who love him. His dice are bullets that slay his children; his slavery spreads like an infestation of Plague.
Beware the Self-Righteous Man; his mirror reflects the children of his nightmares. The locket he keeps about his neck contains only his own flesh. His punishment is the country he pretends to love.
Beware the “Inverted” Racist; his lies return as a Curse and cut his head like wire. He delays the Age of Equality by the promiscuous nature of his greed; he simpers and whines his way to the Pit, deserting the oppressed and stealing their liberty. His religion will not save him.
Beware the Senator; he swims through the waters of freedom into the Maelstrom. His dynasty will not free him, nor his gold. He will knock at the gates of Hell and receive admittance, unto Pain without end.
Beware the Dissector of Children; his offspring shall be monsters.
Beware he who defrauds the Labourer; penury shall be his lot in the World to come.
Beware the Addict; the white powder he consumes is the currency of slaves. The pin-holes in his flesh are tunnels into the Underworld; Gorgons live there.
Beware the Phoney Reasoner; his irrational rants attract fools like a dead lodestone.
Beware the Unhappy Prostitute; she trades her skills for lucre, without love or warmth. Her reward is Ice without Fire.
Beware the Hunter; the blood he worships shall cover him. The Pain he teaches to beasts shall he feel ten thousand fold.
Above all,
Beware MAN, whose heart is black.

Monday and all next week!

Hilary Morden (darkvampire)
You might be surprised that someone entirely self-taught in Photoshop, as is Hilary Morden, would also have a degree in Art History. Armed with that and a keen appreciation of composition, light, and to one degree or another, the shock value of Surreal, Macabre, and Dark Art; Morden is cutting a dark swath across the digital dance floor.

Some consider Morden’s art disturbing; because the artist questions and prods the viewer to think. Hilary Morden has fully considered the human spirit and mortality, and challenges the viewer to see death and life from a consequential perspective, based on the things we do that tear us apart.

Solo Exhibition is proud to feature images of twelve (12) of Hilary Morden’s digital artworks, Monday through Sunday of October 5th – 11th, 2009, on Red Bubble.

An open house reception for the artist will be held on Monday, Oct 5th; where more of Hilary Morden’s works can be viewed. It’s open for viewing to the public and open for comments to members of Solo Exhibition.

This exhibit is for mature audiences only, as some content disturbs, in order to provoke thought. Some works will have a protective “workplace filter” that may be selectively turned off for viewing any one piece.

Artists and Artworks of Note


“I mainly create images for my own pleasure, but shared joy is doubled joy….” -- BG. Barbara Glatzeder, Laben, Germany.
Working as a part-time Media Designer and freelancing stay-at-home mom, Barbara is working toward a group photography show in 2010. Her powerful, strong willed, female faces literally grab your attention.
Slipping through my fingers, shown right, is a wild Wuthering Heights — Cathy looking for her Heathcliffe. The graphic, Pop Art style is immaculately rendered and clearly shows the professional touch of the designer. This image has a great narrative. We can engage immediately with the subject, yet also celebrate the physical painting.

Glatzeder’s technique allows the simple four-colour scheme to sell the image. I love the flat colour and precise shape, and that the graphic line and accuracy of shape make the face three dimensional. Hair floats in front of the nose; and I can see and put my hand under those wind-blown tresses. Tonal shapes reveal depth to the light and shadows, as they move across the face, and the sense of the moment becomes apparent.

I became a fan of Barbara’s chalk pastel and watercolour, curvy, and decorative lines, crisply defining the paper.
by Richard Sunderland, Feature Writer
Hidden, shown left,
is equally full of drama, more confrontational and in your face. Glatzeder’s vivid colour scheme sells the picture with sharp acidity. The spiraling composition takes us right into the eye of the painting, almost like a spatial journey to a distant galaxy.

Hidden’s eye almost looks like a cluster of stars, where the observer is drawn in. I am now conjuring and questioning what is she looking at; what is this moment of reflection. Like a flash back, you come zooming back to reality, staring at this face, like you know her. The reality is exactly that, like when you are window shopping trying to see yourself in the reflection to check your hair; and you suddenly stop in case someone is looking!

New Birth, shown right, by Paul Alleyne, Palmdale, California U.S.A. is one of those photographs that establishes you among professional artists. It speaks volumes in total silence.

It is left to the viewer to imagine the birth pangs and moans and groans that ensue, the little head and tiny hands and feet that will soon pop out, and the smile and laughter from family and friends who derive pleasure from the new born baby.

But in the midst of it all is a woman who is in the moment of pleasure, pain, and wondering what will be. Alleyne keenly focuses on her pregnant belly and grained skin, celebrating her blackness with light. Her face doesn’t matter.

We are focused, as she is, on what is beneath the surface. When will it come…what will it look like…girl or boy…healthy or not? She cradles her belly like a water balloon so that it won’t burst. And I find myself hoping that all is well. Paul Alleyne has masterfully seen to that.

Faerie bridge’…
by valzart

watercolour on hot pressed paper, 14 × 10 in.
al fresco in Langley Woods, Norfolk, England
Featured in First Things, Creative Cards, Hand drawn or painted Art, Works on Paper, and Eastern England
Faerie bridge’… by Val Kelly, a.k.a. valzart, Malaga, Spain, is representative of the artist’s love of color.

For one primarily familiar with the artist’s hundreds of digital works, it may come as a surprise that Val is so adept with watercolor. Painted in situ, Faerie bridge abounds with the charm of a bright autumn day meant for the wee folk.

Val saves her bold strokes for the dense trees, through whose trunks she emits a rainbow of light. She delicately outlines heart-shaped leaves and stones dotting the landscape, and lightens the scene with spring green moss surrounding a meandering creek.

The faeries are hiding though, while the viewer enjoys their colorful shire. Tree leaves fairly dance in anticipation of their arrival. When I reluctantly turn my back on this piece, I have no doubt that tiny feet will scamper across the bridge meant only for them. I hear their giggles in the woods, even now.

by F.A. Moore


Margaret Harris, Tillsonburg, Canada, owns a masterful understanding of light and tone. Using light and tone, she creates realistic images that capture the very essence of her subject. Her drawings have a delicate softness to them whilst still displaying fine detail. Adept with watercolor, pastel and graphite, her pencil drawings are the focus of our feature.

In Born To Be Wild, shown right, the souls of the subjects are clearly portrayed, making it one of my favorites. With selective colouring, Margaret made the sunglasses reflection the focal point of the scene. The use of light and tone in varying degrees has created wonderful textures, especially in the beard.

Featured in Painters of Modern Times, Accentuate the Eyes Group, First Things Group, Imaginative Realism, Your Accepted, 1 0n 1 Fine Art, Two Being Group, Soul Mates, Live Love, Dream; and placed in top 10 challenges

Gone Fishing
by Margaret Harris

Archers drawing paper, 2H to 9B graphite pencils
Featured in Graphite Pencil Drawing, Imaginative Realism, Art and Stories Made for Children; and 1st Place in Graphite Pencil Artists Open Challenge

Margaret Harris is probably best known for her delightful drawings of children.

I like the composition of Gone Fishing, show left. An imaginary triangle, formed by the subject and the rod and line, serves to draw the viewer’s eyes downwards, to see what the subject is looking at.

The choice of paper with its vertical grain has worked well in emphasizing the timber grain; and Margaret’s clever use of tonal gradients and time consuming attention to detail have achieved realistic textures.

Movement and atmosphere within Seashore viewer, shown right, immediately attracted me to this drawing of a 14 year-old girl, in this case, the artist’s daughter.

I can almost feel the breeze against the seagulls’ wings. Graphite from 2H to 9B has been applied in layers from light to dark to create the textures, from the soft folds of fabric through to the light play on the water.

Quelling The Tirades Of Impurity in The Gold Coast
by Jason Asher

3 blended exposures (EV -2, 0, +2),
450D and Sigma 10-20 at f/16 and ISO 100
Post processing in Photoshop CS4
Featured in The Gold Coast, ! 100% !, All Around the Styles, and SEA

Quelling The Tirades Of Impurity in The Gold Coast, by Jason Asher, was captured just as Australia’s Winter turned to Spring, when the water pulsated through the sandy rocks of The Gold Coast.

Jason, of Brisbane, Australia, who first picked up the camera just a year ago, blended three (3) exposures taken with a wide angled lens, then followed with post processing in photoshop, to portray the sensation of moving, red water up close. The Currumbin Creek is one of only three (3) creeks in The Gold Coast area that empty directly into the Ocean.

Orange-red echoes in the skyline point to a city on the distant shore— a forgotten city, as you focus on the great whitecap crashing against the rock less than 100 meters away.

Red veins sizzle through slabs of rock— I’m guessing iron ore veins in Basalt, resulting from ancient volcanic flow. A small boulder in the forefront echoes the deep blue sky and rich volcanic iron. It seems, itself, like a painted aboriginal artwork— a treasure that you feel you must pick up and turn. You wonder about its past, but leave it for the parting waters to flow one more day around its soft edges, into the shore and back out to the ocean.

by F.A. Moore


MoonSpiral, a.k.a. Tammy, uses a variety of medium and is probably best known for her pastels and acrylic works; although recent forays into pen and ink have seen her retain her style and produce gorgeous detailed pieces. I like to think Tammy’s women are all parts of her inner goddess.

In the pastel painting, Bindi, shown right, Bindi’s hypnotic eyes and creamy tones are characteristic of Tammy’s pastel works. Bindi’s colours are both sensual and calming, with the cool blue/greys balancing the rich earthy red.

The upwards line of the shoulder adds to the confidence and directness of the the womans gaze— serene, sensual, and confident.

Tammy says Bindi evolved by “accident”— a gypsy woman who tranformed culturally as the drawing was worked. The eyes draw us in, like a window into the woman’s being. Perhaps Bindi represents part of the artist’s spirit.

White Witch
by MoonSpiral

9×12 pastel on Sennelier La Carte paper
Featured In Myths, Legends, and Fairytales; Inspired Art; The Divine Feminine; and Dream and Fantasy Art
White Witch, a pastel shown left, is a rendering of a photograph by Jessica Walker.

I see the owl— an addition by Tammy, as representing knowledge, an ancient wisdom, a protector of the night. The White Witch is respectful of the owl, grateful for its company and guidance, whilst on her lonely vigil through the snow. I sense it may be her familiar, or spirit guide.

Tammy has cleverly contrasted the wintery blues with pinks to uplift the piece, giving warmth to the snow-flurried scene.
Spirit of the South Wind is from a set of 4 pastel paintings that evoke the elementals and divine feminine, a recurring theme in Tammy’s work.

Tammy’s use of vibrant colours allude to Spring. The flowers and butterfly seem to represent new life and the change in seasons, the warm South wind carrying the seeds of renewal.

12×18 pastel on sanded Wallis paper

Freedom to Shine, Flowers in macro, Flower and Foliage, a Fascinating Purple, Outsiders, Weekly Theme Challenges, The Feature Fraternity, Colour me a Rainbow, Gorgeous Flower Cards, The Woman Photographer, and Winner of: Purple Petals challenge, All Purple challenge, A Fascinating Purple May Avatar, and a Red Bubble Homepage Feature

by Mel Davies, Feature Writer
Ingz, a.k.a., Ingrid, a self taught photographer, has a keen eye for detail and composition.

Her macro shots cleverly highlight simple, elegant patterns of nature with clean, crisp lines.

Through her handling of composition, light, and focus, Ingrid draws attention to subtle details and depth within each image.

Ingrid’s clever choice in title adds something extra to her work. In Purplicious, displayed left, the colors of deep purple and bright yellow-green compliment and highlight each other, really popping the colors.

The repetition of the star-shaped flower base in the larger shape of the petals, draws your eyes down each long petal, bouncing them back up again to the top right hand corner, effectively maintaining your focus indefinitely.


William Vanden Berg, Hudsonvile U.S.A. is a master acrylic painter with an eye for detail. His deft brush strokes bring nature alive.

It is brilliant to find a painter with William’s, skill— a real master with the brush. In “Grizz”, we don’t quite have the cuddly grizz; rather a weatherworn and cunning hunter on the scent, running into the picture plane. The hair ripples with every pounding footpad.

Detail of Grizz
by William Vanden Berg

detail section of Acrylic painting, Grizz
Attention to detail is amazing— even those fluffy small hairs are visible catching the air flow over the bear’s body. They are so fine and sharp they could almost be scratched into the paint.

Directional brush work is cleverly used to create the detail. Highlights link in colour to the simple contrasting blurred tones of an out-of-focus ground that surrounds the bear in a dust storm, possibly as the result of the impact of his paw on earth.
Sunset on the pond is another example of Vanden Berg’s understanding of composition. Note the placement of geese, the spacing of reeds slanting across the foreground, creating carefully used screen with apertures, framing the solo goose and his friends and their reflections

For me, the reeds are the painting. They are the structure of the composition that brings this almost silent image alive. The colours of each reed change subtly along their length, ending, as we rise, with tips of clear light.

Sunset on the pond
by William Vanden Berg

Acrylic on canvas, 30 × 40 inches

The reeds link the top to the bottom, dividing the painting rhythmically to compliment the water. But the magic is in how these verticals are fanned, each blade expertly defined, seeming to have a compositional purpose, perhaps catching a breeze or sound. The geese give us the clue; because they have just turned to sense it. Spectacular painting.

@Billy Lee, and all who came before this post, all Vol 12 PDF links are consistent now and point to the file. I had mistakenly typed in Title case in some, and Capital case in others. I’ve tested all. This download will take some time, as it’s 16 MB.

For those featured and the writers, your Reprint Articles are available for separate download at the links, just above the close.

@Margaret, yes, hours have been put into this, not only by me, but also the writers, like Mel Davies, who I believe produced an outstanding article about your work (bravo Mel!), Anita Inverarity, and Richard Sunderland, referencing in this issue in particular; and Linda Ridpath and Joanne Bradley, and Linda Gregory, in other issues. For my own part in it, I can say that it is very much a joyful moment, when I see it all together. You all are so very inspiring. It’s a joy to pour over your art.

I am so extremely honoured Frannie for my mini feature, absolutely speechless as I never expected it…thank you so very much. I would also like to thank Mel Davies for writing such kind words about me and my work. The work that goes into putting Solo Exhibition together is outstanding and so appreciated by everyone. You are totally amazing. So humbled, thank you xxxxx

F.A. Moore F.A. Moore 37018 posts

@Tammy, so glad you enjoyed your feature. Anita wrote in such glowing terms, originally, that I had to tone it down a bit. :D) I tell all the writers, that our job is to illuminate the artwork, not give our opinion of how beautiful or great it is. We leave that for the viewer to decide. Your feature was Anita’s first article with the magazine. I think it was fantastic, enjoyed it immensely, and look forward to more from Anita’s enlightened perspective!

Congratulations, Tammy!

@Barbara, thrilled that you’re thrilled with your feature and Richard’s excellent commentary. Love the images he chose to write up, as well! It’s like Tammy commented, I saw something new in them.

@Ingz, I was delighted when Mel Davies introduced me to Purplicious. Sometimes things get past me in the gallery; and this is one that had. It’s so completely unusual and has garnered many features. Congratulations on this piece. I’m so delighted that you are pleased with your feature in the magazine. Thanks, Ingz; and thanks, Mel!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful art and heart, Val!

Fantastic Issue Fran- So much new discoveries once more for me and I am really looking forward to the next exhibition.
