• Helen Steele Figurative Art

    “My compositions are never preconceived, yet my themes are recurrent: The use of the figure as the means of investigating various psychological states: harmony, serenity, anxiety, isolation….I work in multiple layers with buried images and words. Paint is wiped off and layers are peeled yielding the emerging image. Symbolic markings, personal imagery, shapes and words appear, questions arise. As I work and rework my canvas the image appears sometimes only to elude me then to reassert itself much later”

  • Marco Martínez – “Artist of Nature”

    “The visual fantasy of Marco Martinez (Canar 1953) basks in the Edenic forest in subtropical Ecuador, which emanates some magic and mystery. The artist penetrates devoutly in nature, trying to interpret their secrets through the countless shades of color and the effects of light on plant skin. The vibrant range of truths that fills the surface of his works, forms a harmonically structured orchestration, on which stand the intense reds and yellows. A movement luminosity envelope fuses with the foliage […]

    Two Minute Highlight Reel #1

    Richard Jett – Director/Cameraman Everyone—a company, service, or artist—has a story. When you tell a story you’re creating a memory. Outstanding stories are told with the best pictures. I can take your story from initial filming through post production, or I can work with your team on a single part of the production.
