Description of Work: Mixed media applications on abstract landscapes ( oils, pastels, cold wax and oils, encaustics Mixed media )
Artist Statement: Helen Santelli - In response to over 50 years of making art, I have loved the fact that not only is my spirit revealed through my imagery, but the world around me! The act of creating is so grounded in subconscious decisions, almost as simple as “ I like that” or “ looks right”, that I am totally amazed when I can read my work and see what REALLY is going on! “Ahhh!” I say to myself....”Ahh so that is how it is!” Please take a moment to see yourself, your world or read the artist’s story!
Artist Statement: Virginia Cassetta - Color, shapes, and symbolic images all give a voice to the narrative of words and landscapes. With encaustics and cold wax I am able to layer meanings, discover patterns, textures and movements in a sculptural manner. The shifting of colors one under another allows for transparent moments where I can discover the richness of being human and allow forgiveness of my imperfections.
