EMIL ALZAMORA (click for more) (below)

Sculptor Emil Alzamora, born in Peru and educated and working in the US, brings a unique affinity for the human form, which is a constant in his work.  He is interested in exploring what it means to inhabit one, often exaggerating or distorting different aspects of the form to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to tell a story about a predicament or an occurrence.

CHRISTINA BOTHWELL (below)

In my work I am drawn to the processes of birth, death, and renewal. What lies below the surface fascinates me and I try to capture the qualities of the "unseen" that express the sense of wonder that I feel in my daily existence. I am attracted to glass because it can do everything that other sculptural media can; in addition, it offers an inner space and transmits light. Currently I am exploring metamorphosis as a topic, and have been incorporating figures within figures in my pieces. Within each glass figure there is a smaller figure seen through the surface of the glass. I think of these pieces as souls, each being pregnant with their own potential, giving birth to new, improved versions of themselves.

RORY COYNE (below)

At its core my work is about relationships, specifically what we hide from others and suppress in ourselves. Often this attempt to occult our feelings or actions is unsuccessful and only works to further complicate our relationships. My paintings are psychological revelations layered in symbolism and mythology – the truth is there, but it might also be in the shape of a snake woman or a horse-headed man.

JOHN BUCK (below)

John Buck's work demonstrates an exceptional insight and perspective on the social and political realities of the day. It often explores the enormity and complexity of conflict, yet his figures are whimsical and resilient. Buck manages to make provocative "issues" art, treating the conflict seriously, while his combination of symbols and figures display a sense of humor, and therefore an optimistic balance.

SUZANNE STORER (below)

I work exclusively with the figure expanding life drawings made from a single view point into 3 dimensional objects that now function from multiple viewpoints. In this way I examine relationships in perspective between two and three dimensions. When finished line, shape, volume and the skin-like sheen of the terra sigillata surface combine to reveal the humanness of the individual depicted.

JEFF WALLIN (click for more) (below)

Jeff Wallin’s ethereal and atmospheric figure drawings in glass take inspiration from emotionally and psychologically complex figure painters such as Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud, Wallin’s portraits have the marks of a painter’s perspective and a painter’s intuition, the relaying of an idea by brush – all that expressed in the language of glass

JOEL URRUTY (click for more) (below)

As an artist I strive to create elegant sculptures that capture the true essence of the subject matter. Form, line and surface are used as the visual language. The figure is abstracted to a minimalist form, 
void of any superfluous information. The primary material, wood, is often masked by paint to allow the form to take precedence over the material.  Monochromatic colors such as, black or white are often used 
on the sculptures allowing light and shadow to play off the subtle shifting facets of the sculptures.

JANIS MILTENBERGER (below)

As curious creatures we attempt to make sense of our world connecting lines and creating stories based upon the images we see. We hold a vocabulary of common imagery that human experience has provided. It is the everyday images I seek out as elements of fables that can speak to each of us in symbolic language. A nest, wishbone and glass cage, those images have recognizable meanings and draw upon feelings and experiences of our shared humanity.

ROBERT BENDER (below)

I am drawn to the magnetic symbolic power that everyday objects hold, especially when used in a figurative context.  In my heart, the remnants of editorial problem solving remain, except I am no longer illustrating text.  Instead, observations of the heart and mind are what I am searching to reflect and comment on.  Viva found objects!

ROGELIO MANZO (click for more)  (below)

As an artist I've been relentless in my pursuit to the inner story of a person through a physical portrait. Where most strive for a mirror reflection in their art I demand more on my work to unearth the story below the surface. A portrait can reach deep inside and expose the secret stories and identity of its sitters.

ADRIAN ARLEO (below)

For me, every sculpture—even those in a related series—has its own individual, freestanding life. But when I finished this most recent body of work and looked for a feeling that encompassed it as a whole, I was struck by the concept of a harbinger: a dream, sign, or omen foreshadowing things to come. There is a quiet resistance, in this work, to the cultural and biological losses of our time. Some of the pieces reference the feeling of ancient Greek and Italian art; classical imagery has always provided an innate vocabulary. By focusing on older, more mysterious ways of seeing the world, edges of consciousness and deeper levels of awareness suggest themselves.

SIBYLLE PERETTI (below)

In my work I explore the lack of harmony between human beings, nature, and our inability to achieve unity with the natural world. I strive to uncover hidden worlds in which harmony can exist and heal. Children, who represent vulnerability are placed in a diaphanous universe of potential solutions and revived through a new and intimate, perhaps mystical reconnection to nature.

STEPHEN DEE EDWARDS (below)

My work represents my ongoing fascination with nature and our relationship to it. The figure, birds, and abstract natural forms are used to promote meditation on nature, structure and material. I use glass to express my ideas as it exemplifies the fragility of nature. The transparency of the material is important to me as it facilitates the illusion of looking through water at an image. The glass magnifies and sometimes distorts images and puts them into a dream-like state. I have always been fascinated with the colors and textures found in nature. I attempt to convey my feelings about natural forms, textures and colors through my glass sculptures.

JOHN WOODWARD (below)

I use the human head as a metaphor for humanity.   I then abstract the surface as a reference to the internal and external forces at work on a daily basis that inform illuminate and complicate our lives and state of being.
