Acrylic on Canvas Paintings

Helena Wierzbicki, "My creativity in art is strongly influenced by my state of ánimo.Siempre have disfurtado art from an early age. The love of art is installed in me, has developed and increased, I can not imagine wanting to do anything else ... painting represents me and externalize my feelings.
I'm interested in exploring my natural abilities, and I am excited the unquestioned commitment to an art according to my innermost thoughts and emotions; my art is an evolutionary process and has elements that represent the essence of being imaginary, everything develops and evolves over time. I determined not to be an artist that reflects the everyday, or creararte related to the social sphere. What enriches me, it's that sense of accomplishment and integrity. Painting has shown me be susceptible to express my inner world vehicle. I trust my senses to reflect the beauty, poetry and seduction in it."

Picture of the Shadows

Dan Rawlings, "I try to create images that remind people of the moments when everything seems possible and free; times when climbing a tree, or sitting admiring the way its branches twist and curl means nothing, but means everything.

Welded Steel Sculptures



Frank Plant, "My work is about physical and social observations. I think of things in terms of compositions whether that be an object, a line of text or a social situation. It’s important to me that the work be open and accessible. I look equally for harmony and discordance and find them similarly revealing and fascinating. I’ve been imbued with a sense of social awareness and hence choose to deal with these issues, as I see them, sometimes in my work. Finding and examining the subtle manners of communication of and between humans for me is all about exposing the balance and symmetry or lack thereof in our everyday existence."
