Duarte Vitória

 photo revolution_zps8239467f.jpg  photo into_the_dark_zpsa539ea63.jpg  photo insomnia_zpsdd8c7733.jpg In this series "artist Duarte Vitória shares his vision with the spectator, through touching his deep senses. This time, the work embodies the concept of Revolution, as a permanent state of being. In the artist perspective, the evolution path sustains itself in the idea of constant movement, ever changing into new forms, new states of mind, new ideas; Sustains in the concept of the ever fresh and recreated human being. Vitória´s statement is about never submitting to a lethargic state of mind. Is about daring to change, daring to emerge ourselves in the profound dark of the human condition, without restrictions. With is vivid and rebel brushing, he intends to disturb the spectator, giving the impression of almost grabbing him. The interlocutor is choked by the inter-penetration of flesh, the marks and prints all over the bodies, claiming the Insomnia as a pre-revolutionary state of being. The large scale of the works amplifies the disturbing effect, well known as the digital print of the identity of this artist."  photo inoffensive_zpsb3ee9c55.jpg  photo insubordination_zpsd442ba0a.jpg

Dale Dreiling

His body of work demonstrates his capability for realistic technique as well as his sensibility for impressionistic representations of the everyday, strongly occupying the grey space of not-highbrow, nor-lowbrow. Playing in limbo presents a challenge unique to contemporary art: bringing new perspective to dancing down the middle of the road. Dreiling has an innate sense of when to veer one direction or the other, revealing a mastery of that ever elusive balance: the beauty in in-betweeenness. Dreiling is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute. He is an Art Director for Studio Number One and currently lives in South Pasadena, CA.  photo dd-Beer-Ptgs-49-M_zpsd44166e7.jpg  photo dd-Beer-Ptgs-38-M_zps8462fef5.jpg  photo dd-Beer-Ptgs-41-M_zps388fc44f.jpg

Despite always having had the urge to grab a crayon or a camera, I'm something of an apprehensive artist. It has taken time for me to grow comfortable with the notion of sharing my work with others. As my voice has grown stronger, with ideas and critiques, I have found the prospect of sharing experiences through art quite advantageous. Through the reflexive extension of my own personal exploration of the field, many of the conversations in my work are about art itself. What does art mean to me? What purpose does it serve in my life and in the lives of others? What are the "boundaries" of the art experience? Are there any?" - Chad Wys  photo Pastoral1-c-print-2012-24x30-002_zps8cfd1f58.jpg  photo Pastoral5-c-print-2012-30x24-002_zps90e59e55.jpg
