He worked two years in "The Center of Contemporary Engraving" in Geneva. But it was in Zurich that he expanded his pictorial perspective with the experience of the circle above the face, influenced by the Swiss painter Friederick Kuhn.

Mrs. Mathew Sumich - Mathew Sumich passed away in late 2012. His work is available through Judith Sumich or the Michael H. Lord Gallery, Palm Springs, CA. The following statement is in his own words: "The focus of my work - whether non-commissioned or commissioned - is to work with basic elements such as line, form, color, texture, etc., and to apply them to the principles of design, e.g., dealing with proportion, subordination, rhythm, balance, opposition, transition, harmony and contour continuation, and to deal with different media, e.g., steel, glass, paint, wood, cement, etc., and to find potential uses of the media, taking into consideration its use in the environment in which it is to be located. My interests have always been with line and plane - the first elements of drawing. Line creates plane, plane creates depth, plane can advance or recede by the use of color. My art is fundamental, basic, simple design principles in action. Using structural design principles and having a good understanding of the environment, I am able to take any media - steel, glass, wood, clay, canvas - and create 2-dimensional, 3-dimensional, or 4 dimensional (adding the dimension of time) objects. The final form, be it a painting, ...
Eric Ehlenberger - My interest in neon, metal and glass began with a childhood fascination with prisms, rainbows and colored light. It was exposure to the Impressionists use of color and light to develop mood that triggered my interest in art. The Constructivist movement of the early 20th Century, particularly the works of Tatlin and Malevich, strongly influenced me with regard to structure and form. Subsequent influences include the Abstract Expressionist focus on non-objective interpretation and Asian culture's aesthetic emphasis on the elegance of simplicity and the economy of form. I approach my sculptures as meditations of form and color. Using the vibrant colors and shadows achieved by combining neon lights with glass and brushed metal, I explore the emotional impact of luminous color and simple forms. This contemplative approach is most evident in such series as the Circle, Arc Series, Composition Series, Celebration Series and the Tectonic Series. Of greater complexity are the theme-based series of my Venusian World sculptures. In these series, I explore a fantasy world of luminous flora and fauna including landscapes and dioramas in order to create an environment in which many sculptures work together as a whole. The culmination of this work is the "...
