Artists Describing Their Art:
- Subject matter in painting is merely the trigger that allows the expression of something more profound, unconscious and possibly hidden even from oneself, and therefore all inclusive, so viscerally immanent to humankind R. Alonzo Totems beyond Patriarchy May 2014 Nature has been qualified as a female organic form by most ancient cultures, but for the last millennia or so, the world has been primarily perceived and shaped by the masculine side of the species. Our recent history however has seen a trend towards a natural reversion to a feminine bias, with women becoming increasingly more crucial to all aspects of society. These works serve to remind us about these issues and others that we continue to face the world while reinventing the female figure as an emblem for current conditions and a new Totem for the future. The juxtaposition between the representations of the animals and plants in compromised an ailing conditions and the female form that seems to swallow and revive the life- infused aspects of her creation, render a sense of hope for a future in which the maternal provides a healing force to an ailing planet.

Andrea Waxman Mulcahy
- My work illuminates an energetic state that exists yet is generally not seen. Movement as it is captured in space indicates pathways and an energy flow. Visualization of this movement brings to mind that which is not seen in the world but still exists. Im intrigued by the way simple lines can become complex structures and how complex structures can be reduced to simple lines. I choose to work in steel because it gives me the most immediate connection to my thoughts and the welding process allows me to quickly execute my ideas. The stability and the permanence of metal also gives me the capability to build with structural freedom. Steel rods can represent an single line allowing the negative space to become an important part of the sculpture and the bent steel rods create a fluidity that lets one forget that the structure is made of hard steel....
- The basis of my work is the exploration of universal patterns of being common to everyone such as shadow, hero, or trickster. My interest in patterns of being is a fascination that we all share common behaviors or emotions that can be understood singularly. Each pattern of being may be expressed as a figurative sculpture of hand cast aluminum alloy at half-life scale. Patterns of being may be referenced with Jungian archetypes. My hope is to make patterns of being more visible and tangible. Deject Selected as Best in show at the 2021 Piccolo Spoleto Art Exhibition ...

- Paul Machalaba is a cutting edge artist specializing in large welded aluminum sculptures with a contemporary cast look. His pieces can be found coast to coast in private estates and in city centers at prominent corporate locations. Growing up in rural Vermont, but spending years in Florida, he is now well known for bringing a youthful fresh style to the northeast. Working from his studio in laid back Woodstock VT, he strives to find the perfect balance of motion and rigidity in a unique blend of sleek calligraphy inspired works with zero visable welds. His portfolio has a wide variety of styles that show a broad range of inspiration in different series, yet are easily identifiable as being from the same artist. He has been quoted as saying I love to explore different styles, from elegant to abstract graffiti. So many artists either have many different variations of designs that look the same, or no consistency. I feel that its the same with many rock bands on the radio. Some bands songs all kind of sound the same, but the legendary bands have a deep rooted consistency, yet every song is a completely new experience. I want all of my ...
- Art ELEMENTS include; relationships of objects, shapes, lines, spaces, colors, rhythm and balance. ELEMENTS are seen when observing any work. An artist should learn while observing, exploring and inventing. While subject matter is important, it should remain subservient to these ELEMENTS. MY WEBSITES:
