Sample Works

Steven Carrelli - Pendulum, 1998


"I focus on minutely perceived small forms from nature. Attention is lavished on the individual components of a landscape -- a single leaf, a seed, a cluster of berries."

Grace Cole - Museum of...Passions, 2000



"The objects in the oil paintings are used as metaphors. The ripe and decaying fruit express mankind's struggle for growth and balance in existence. Light plays an important role in setting a mood."

Stephen Horan - Headlights Abstracted, 1995


"I am interested in capturing the basic geometric relationships and some of the spirit of a city such as Chicago..."

Thomas Kapsalis - Prime Space Time, 1992

"My recent oil paintings depict square planes that could form a cube or box or any other configuration. I never explain my work in literal terms because I am creating something visual."

Gay Griffin Riseborough - Heiress, 1999


"Sometimes life events are so powerful that it is years before we can appropriately process them. This painting series is, and will continue to be, my attempt to come to terms with certain dark events in my life."

Eric Semelroth - Cross Dressing Draft Resister Who Chanted Hare Krishna for 7 Years, 1998



"I make uncommissioned pastel portraits on paper. Some of my subjects appear in costume. The costumes are part of identities that these people have assumed on their own. These images are meant to oscillate between the individual character of the sitter and his assumed persona. I feel a connection to these subjects because they too are creators of artifice."

Eleanor Spiess-Ferris - Spring Composing Summer, 1999





"My work uses nature as metaphor for the human condition."

Alice Vrazo - Untitled, 1997

"During evening walks in autumn, the sky has a way of closing in quickly. There is a certain dark beauty that fills the surrounding space as sight is shortened and the other senses piqued. This experience mirrors an internal state of vulnerability when understanding and con-fidence give way to uncertainty."
