My creativity often leads me to the edge of the figurative and non-figurative abstract worlds, luring me back and forth across this delicate divide on my artistic journey.
Abstract is the art form which speaks to me the loudest; while it requires an undeniable form of self-discipline to control flow, rhythm and energy, it abides to no rules and it stands alone as an art form which allows anything to come to life. Abstract art leads the viewers and painters alike on a thrilling path of discovery where the rational mind no longer dictates how things are or should be and where everything is palpable and resonates if only we allow ourselves the freedom to stop thinking.Read More Featured Artist – Helen Canetta

“I am a realist through and through, apolitical and not moralizing. This realism, which tends less to represent reality than to establish reality, rejects any emphasis and any dramatic sensation or satirical intention in a work of art. They are authentic creations, separate from the abstract and from what could be contemptuously described as illustrative. The supposedly realistic pictorial designs are not simple representations of a depictable reality, but always reconstructions that transcend mere experience. I try to represent the found or invented motif in such a way that as an artist I give the viewer the feeling of encountering a new reality that has more weight than just an image.Read More Featured Artist – Anton Hoeger
I LIKE TO NOTICE THINGS: patterns of cracks on the street, colors of sprinkles scattered across the white icing on a doughnut, the texture of peeling bark. I try to use my brush to capture the tension between patterns, colors, and textures.If I am successful, those who view my work will feel the same joy I feel when creating it. As a self taught artist I have spent over 20 years exploring painting and wood sculpting. My work is abstract featuring bright colors, unusual geometric shapes, and various textures.Read More Featured Artist – Robert Frankel

The versatility of acrylic inspires me to explore its many techniques and avenues of expression. Much of my work explores and pushes the boundaries of abstract experimentation. Most of the time I don’t know where I’m going at the beginning of a painting until I make marks on canvas or paper. Whether it’s color or texture, I let intuition guide me until I see something I like, then I expand on it. Sometimes I focus on ways to express the different “seasons” in the circle of life by using symbolism, texture and color; thus, the symbolism I find in candles, dragonflies, ravens, rust, etc.Read More Featured Artist – Lynn Chatman
