Antonio Alvarez

A painter paints in spite of himself, out of necessity for his spirit to survive gracefully and without regrets. There is not a worse painting than the one that was thought of but never executed. When I arrived in the USA (a very young man, then) I had been practicing both Literature and Painting with […]

Beth Sutherland

The subjects of my paintings and prints — urban/suburban architecture, and landscape — are for me potent reflections of the lives we live. My works provide a way of seeing what’s right under our noses. This is, naturally, both pleasurable (or I wouldn’t be making them), and not. As I spend more and more time […]

Artist’s Statement The titles of the works, which are suggestive of allegorical content, serve as introductions to the images narrative. My aim is to engage the viewer in both the title’s verbal association and it’s visual analogy. My hope is that the work will provide both surface and metaphorical readings that will connect the idea […]

Encaustic painting is fun—you work with a blowtorch, hot wax, and a pancake griddle. Weird, right? I desperately try to control the wax with the fire, to make the geometric shapes and straight lines I picture in my head, and the wax does its own thing. So I reframe my expectations as the wax decides […]

I am interested in exploring and creating connections between objects and images. My compositions focus on actual and imagined links between place, past and present. Using traditional and innovative techniques in my work, I juxtapose paint and wax on wood surfaces with found remnants. These artifacts of personal histories are essential to my artistic process, […]

SAT only  My lifelong interest in movement and background in dance have inspired me to explore various methods for expressing kinetic energy in still photographs. My preferred method is to leave my camera shutter open for a fairly long duration and to almost draw images with a moving camera. This approach incorporates spontaneity and chance. […]

I love to paint. I am drawn irresistibly to the landscape, to its forms and colors and particularly its light, which varies so dramatically throughout the day and throughout the seasons. Beauty is always an important consideration. I cannot paint a subject unless I see something beautiful in it, something that makes me grateful to […]

I work with simple geometric pattern, primarily in the form of inkjet prints. The most recent series begun about two years ago is built around dashed lines that I relate to both diagrammatic lines and stitching. These recent pieces are printed on thin Japanese papers that lend them a distinctive subtle texture and color. http://www.evanread.net […]

The Communist era during which I grew up squeezed an imprint on me, a method of perceiving and living in the surrounding world, which in turn defined a method of creating. Getting involved in the New York art scene in 1988 “opened a window” in my soul. My first solo show in New York was […]

I am interested in visual subjects exploring authenticity and identity, feminism and destruction. I am curious about the constructs of creativity in bilingual cultures and the limits of language in different cultures. I am disturbed by injustice, and my response was to create a depiction of language’s potential ambiguities. Language is power, and lack of […]

In creating my art, I have always been drawn to the form known as “narrative art. While this seems to run counter to contemporary trends, which seems to favor shock subject matter and novelty of technique, it has been for me, a deeply satisfying direction. Also, contrary to the popular slick finish offered by digital […]

Folded paper and mosaic are, at first glance, quite distinct media. Yet they both play with pattern and repetition, geometry and rhythm. Pieces come together to create a puzzle, often unexpectedly. Light and shadow interact to create a deeper, more complex image. My work in paper and mosaic is mathematical and meditative, feeding needs that […]

They have been my eye looking outward. My mixed media work, on the other hand, has been my eye looking inward, reflecting my personal history and […]
