Blue Delta Painting, Acrylic Pouring on Canvas W:14 H:14 cm 2019 Bill Mathis

This is the first piece I created for the original Rainbow Pride Series of six works. Blue was the dominant color in a Dutch Pour over a white foundation. Doing the first Pride Series was inspired by what I saw at the Washington DC Pride parade in 2019. It was so full of color and energy that I wanted to create collections of works that featured themes of the primary and secondary colors in the rainbow. And one other thing that I'll mention about fluid art - the result can sometimes feature something completely unexpected. Like the woodland creature so many people see in this piece. Can you find it?

Paradox Digital Arts, Digital Painting on Canvas W:11 H:8.50 in 2019 A. Galano

Have you ever wondered, when you are not "at your best", where would your best mental and psychological capabilities be hanging on to be able to recover you from distress? There is a paradox about having a better being than what we see us to be in reality, sometimes a worse one, and they shift from been present as the central source of behavior and emotions. This is a comparison to a situation of the sort, with the golden horse been the best of all.

Celine (Reappearance Series 8) Photography, Manipulated Photography on Paper W:8 H:10 in 2021 Paul Gravett

Starting with 100+-year-old photographs, the Reappearance series uses multiple exposure, intentional camera motion, and layering to create images that are entirely unpredictable and experimental. With these techniques, I explore the intersection of photography and contemporary art to create evocative, painterly portraits. Dust, tears, and blemishes that mark the original photographs add rich, abstract elements. Nothing is added or subtracted during the 'development' process. Emerging through the thick veil of time, the reappearance of the sitter is the survival of memory.
