REFLECTIONS ON REFRACTIONS by David Rosenberg Centre Gallery East. "My art consists of photographs of temporary pieces of mixed media creations I make using among other things, dyes in various liquids, shards of glass, mirrors, and colored lighting. The photographs are taken while the creations are still wet".
GROUND METAL ART by Steven Lloyd Using metal for his canvas and automotive painting, blending, and grounding as his processes, Steven Lloyd creates the abstract, two and three-dimensional wall artwork that has won him many awards. He maintains a studio at Art Works and exhibits his work throughout Virginia. The exhibit will be in the Center Gallery, West.
"Ground metal art is a very unique and abstract type of artwork. It blends
well with just about any modern contemporary setting. The possibilities are
virtually endless with this style of artwork.
I create all my paintings by hand with the use of the industries top
products. Each and every design is a true one of a kind piece of art full
of engergetic flowing lines that love the reflection of light to create an
ultra modern feel. The colored artwork is created using a transparent
urethane paint system that resembles the look of a hollogram. Most
paintings are clear coated several times for maximum protection." -Lloyd

About the Juror:
"Process is at the center of my work both in its physical and conceptual content. I extrude, pour, drip, spill, spray, cut up, brush on and draw with paint and ink in my drawings, paintings and installations. I am interested in polarities and cycles; patterns that come undone, rejuvenation and oscillation, how the micro echoes the macro, the beauty of failed order and how the humorous can hint at the profound. Paint and ink, think and thin, fluid and solid create highly tactile accumulations bubbling with deviations and repetitions as elements build up and break down. I continually investigate how variations in materials and methods change the experience of a piece. A shifting color palette, transparency, and a vocabulary of repeating, organic visuals elements reinforce ideas of malleability and transition in the work. Some works completely saturate their space and support. Layered to their utmost, they are self-contained objects. Others are much more open, existing in suspended states of disintegration or growth. These paintings reveal and amplify moments of fluctuation while flirting with depiction. Other dualities exist in the vocabulary of the works: translucent red dots look like blood cells and gumdrops, simultaneously. An intermingling of high and low, contemplation and ebullience, my work mixes wonder, celebration, persistence and unease." - from the artist's website.
