Landscapes have always been an appealing photographic subject Kevin Ripp. For Luscious Landscapes, Kevin has adapted two digital images taken in Alapocas Park that capture part of the process of wood degradation. The wood structures take on geometrical properties as they are affected by the elements. These images were then printed on glass for a new perspective of viewing. (Pentax K-50, 55mm lens).

Reminiscent of some of the 19th century painters, Rick Phillips uses his knowledge of light and color to create atmosphere you can almost touch and smell.  Painting en plain aire is almost a religious experience for Phillips.  Using hard and soft edges selectively he develops the feeling of moisture, wind, and the warmth of the sun in his seductive painting.

In 2012 Rick founded the Darley  Arts Center, a gallery for visual artist and a center for art erphillips1RPhillipsLLducation and workshops.

Stephen Ruszkowski artist: “While moving toward landscape he now looks at older works noticing the encroachment of geometric shapes he placed above the horizons.  Looking back now’ he says : I can see the transition happening without my control. I think it was a push for me to better understand what I was working with. At the same time those things were coming together, I was becoming more interested in the historic research I was nerding out on.”steve1

Carol Tippit Woolworth artist.

“From time to time I experience strange,intense, short-lived visions of beauty, an unfamiliar, elusive, barely perceptible beauty that surfaces in certain words of landscapes, certain coloration of the world, certain moments…”
Guy Maupassant

These words express my goal as a painter.  My pairings attempt to capture an intense moment that rings absolutely true.  a sense, a certain light, colors arranged that pierce through ones center to extract a emotion.  A search for beauty in floating island CTWoolworthLL the familiar, unseen until revealed by the work.  The mundane elevated to art.

“Damnatio Memoriae is a tradition that dates back to the Roman Republic, based on older biblical practices in which unfavorable rulers were systematically erased from historical record and public discourse, often through the mutilation and transformation of public monuments. From Latin, the phrase literally means “condemnation of memory.” This project neither seeks to valorize or explore iconoclasm, nor does it pursue Futurist themes of historical destruction, rather it considers how national icons and historical events become resignified, specifically through artistic strategies of doubling and deconstruction.”

 Untitled #10:Working in the WoodsWorking in the Woods references the human labor embedded in materials we consume each day. It positions forest workers at the center of a production process that converts nature into such marketable commodities as lumber, paper, and chips. The panels are made from paint cans used by timber markers who select trees for harvest. A single paint mark on a tree initiates a chain of events that transforms a living thing into a log, a piece of lumber, and finally the floorboards on which you’re standing.

this work deals with children and adults disassociated from themselves and society and the anger that creeps in under his/her skin.UdbeOGy7rvhYTrgmwQfjvq2CruAP9mgpui8wspJcCbw
