Steve Sharon- Main Street Landing Gallery

November-December 2016

The pieces that Steve Sharon incorporated for this show involve a deep and heavy process of a paint method that he stumbled upon through chance and the artistic mind that comes with not having been schooled by Art teachers. He went to school for music and has been a musician since the age of 14 and started painting about 5 years ago when his focus changed from music. The process he is showing within this show is to get a full on abstract visual of what certain colors look like when they come up from under a surface of complimentary moods and tones. The Abstract Expressionist in him wants the viewer to look upon the painting and come to their own conclusion as to what they see. As in all of us, we carry emotions which nurture a deep sense of reality inside our being, so what one person sees inside an abstract painting, another may see something completely different. It’s his goal to have his paintings be looked at for more than one to two minutes, the longer one gets lost inside a painting, the stronger that communication becomes apparent, strengthened and understood between the artist and the viewer.

katie-loesel-at-gallery-at-msl

Katie Loesel

9/9 to 10/31/2016

Open for South End Art Hop Weekend, September 9-11.

Katie Loesel‘s work uses abstraction and color to explore ideas of geological history, microscopic surfaces, and rocky formations. Her interest in human influence on climate change and plastic as a distinct marker of our current era play into the shapes and forms. Plastiglomerate is a new type of rock formation that has been proposed as a geological marker of our current epoch, the Anthropocene, created from a mixture of natural and sedimentary elements fused by plastic from the ocean. The horror and intrigue from this distinctly human interference inspires the shape, form, and color that meld together through layers in the artwork. The appearance of these objects in the work are strangely playful, yet expose our flaws as creators of this plastic virus that is becoming layered into our history. The subjects in the artwork develop and grow in complexity throughout the process of making and layering and range from simple, overlapping shapes, to complicated structures.

Artist Reception during August’s First Friday Art with live music by Rick Reddington, 5:30-7:30PM

Robert Gold’s work “strives to uncover the extraordinary hidden within the ordinary”. His process from start to end is a mixture of techniques and mediums. He takes photos with a digital camera and then works with them through several photo editing programs. He then prints out the image and embellishes the image with acrylic paints and inks. He now is pursuing a technique called “extreme printing” and will be the first artist to use this technique with color. (image: Around Orwell)

Nancy Tomczak

3/1/2016 to 4/30/2016

Nancy Tomczak’s spontaneous flow of color and added anatomical detail are combined with her watercolor paintings. Her collages of her watercolor images push the boundaries of her compositions. A life-long observer of birds has pooled her love of watercolor painting with seemingly endless inspiration. Artist reception during March’s First Friday Art.
