The work shown will represent
different perspectives of how artists see themselves and the
world. The viewer will have the opportunity to view figurative,
nonfigurative paintings, reflecting traces of modern
romanticism, abstract and conceptual arts along with
mysticism, surrealism, symbolism, as well as sensual erotic
imagery of Art Nouveau in their works. These are the personal
expressions of each artist, what they feel and what they are
sensing at the very moment they are creating. At times they are
reflective and introspective, and at other times they celebrate
life and the awesome mystical possibilities of their
imaginations. Some artists attempts to reveal the universal and
the beautiful elements found in the world around us, and like
the Masters they believe that capturing the inner essence of
their subject matter is as important as painting the external
mask. However, all subject matters and content are always for
the viewer to consider and ponder.
The viewer will notice that many of these artists have studied the style
of the Impressionist Masters; only in this way can they control
the consistency and vitality of their medium. These methods of
the Masters also contribute to works of art with lasting value
and a permanence that is timeless.
