Sculptor, JOSHUA PASS

Modern Antique Sculpture

His work is architecturally inspired adornment for space, both functional and non-functional, that is reaction to life, nature and interpersonal communication.a unique way of fusing modern design and material advancements with the simplicity of the past.

“Through these visual stories I try to help the viewer feel and notice the balance or imbalance of people’s relation’s to one another and the environment.”

Abstract Expressionism, CARLENE FRANCES

Her inspiration is drawn from the powerful Asian aesthetics that lives within me, a striving for serenity in a world inundated by input: conscious acts of eliminating the unnecessary so the necessary may speak.  Through this inspiration, the work found its own apartness: its own peace.

‘My love for the creative process allows me to seek new ideas, a visual language of self-expression that will inspire others to see the world from a different viewpoint. “

Abstract Painter, MARK VILLARREAL

Joyful And Playful

Mark is continuing to explore non-objective abstraction with the use of symbols and mark-making. The use of a lyrical line can be consistently traced throughout the paintings, creating negative space and organic shapes.

”I have been painting and exhibiting work for over three decades building up a collection of shapes, along with an ever-evolving sophisticated palette.”

Abstract Painter, LISA KOWALSKI

Bold, Minimal, Creative, Visual Explorations

Lisa describes her methods of line and stroke as, “ deliberate, intuitively unidentified.” These explorations evoke sensation in the viewer that are not bounded by the literal, but can be broadly identified as physical, spiritual or psychological.

“I am in love with the eloquence of sparseness and everything to do with the act of painting: the smell, the lushness of oil paint, color.”

Abstract Painter, MICHAEL KESSLER

Nature-based Abstraction

His paintings are mostly about paint and color… An event frozen in time and space… Obviously produced by a human being in love with nature and the act of painting.

“I emphasisize on material steeped in the spirit of love and celebration.”

Inspired by Nature

He finds joy and inspiration in the more subtle details in nature, such as wildflowers and grasses. Most of his work falls into three series: waterscapes, tree-forms and garden.

“Painting for me, as simply and succinctly as I can say it, is a journey.”

Abstract Painter, MARY MORRISON

Abstract, with an emphasis on color field painting Inspired by the colors and patterns that surround us, the world of light and color found in nature. Mary’s paintings focus on the interplay of canvas and large areas of color. “ I love the various forms color can take in painting, from thin veils that stain the canvas to denser more opaque, printed forms.”

Oil Painter, STEVE CIESLAWSKI

His technique is based on the 17th Century Dutch Masters. He uses layers and layers of oil glazes to achieve an inner luminosity. He uses symbolism to stimulate the psyche and touch people emotionally.

“As an observer of life, to be able to create something that has the ability to transport people visually and touch them on an emotional level, is a profound experience for me”.

Encaustic Painter, BILL FISHER

The encaustic painting technique is also known as hot wax painting, and involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added.

“I paint in a reductivist manner relying on surface and spatial tensions to convey the content. The imagery in my work is based on childhood memory, appropriated diagrams and reflections of the visual realities of urban decay. My work expresses a continuing dynamic of time, experience, and personal perception.
