• Reflections of America - The Legacy Portrait by Artist Robert Petillo

    18 January 2018 – 20 January 2018 | Thursday, January 18th, 2018

    World known and internationally published photo-realist, Bob Petillo, has had an extremely diversified painting career as a fine artist as well as an illustrator. His photo-realistic nostalgic and historical work bridges the gap between the two genres.

    “Reflections of America” series is a photo-realistic nostalgic view of American Icons as reflected in beautiful and classic automobiles. In his Legacy Portraits Bob creates a very personal story about an individual and their automobile.

    “As an artist and illustrator, my commitment is to the development and precision of my craft. By doing so, I can expand and reflect the dynamics of my own imagination and create a window in time.”

    I have been an abstract expressionist painter since age 5. The immediacy and reshness of this style as well as its complexity and boldness has always spoken to me. To this end I paint with acrylic paint in an alla prima style, in a spontaneous and physical way, moving back and forth across the painting surface, making marks that dance across that surface. I start by introducing color, shapes and line, then respond to their development. I move these elements around, adding and removing paint in multiple layers. The work pushes and pulls itself to completion. I have had the good fortune to live in New Mexico for a number of years where the light, sky and general landscape are captivating. My work is inspired by this beauty surrounding me and is a translation of the energy of my environment onto canvas, panel or paper. More recently, my work has focused on my own interior landscape, guided by my intuition and emotion.

    If I were writing a common artist statement, my first task would be to describe what I have made - the second; to express my desire to transform my feeling into a work of art.

    What if this structure was reversed?

    I have created what I want my work to make me feel. We say in French ‘’Prend la vie comme elle vient.’’ translation: take life how it is coming. It is hard to give up the desire to control and just accept; close your eyes and feel the wind.

    Lightness, simplicity, color and a logical evolution remains consistent throughout my sculpture. However, through this body of work I also wanted to understand the static that is inherent in movement, and non-geometric curves.

    Similar to the unexpected surprise of the mix of objects found in a garage sale; I have combined architecture, landscape, nature and sensuality.

    As I am primarily a sculptor, spontaneity is a big challenge for me. In my method of sculpting, there is no going back once you have begun the course of action. By voluntarily avoiding painting techniques and continuing my evolution in the three-dimensional process, I am forcing myself to systematically learn a new language. This progression is bringing me closer and closer to my main passion and obsession: searching.

    My dream would be to be like you, seeing my own work for the very first time.

  • GEOMETRIC: Organic

    26 January 2017 – 24 February 2017 | Thursday, January 26th, 2017 - from 6:30pm - 9:30pm

    Color versus Shape                
    Silver’s color is dynamic and strong, yet it is the shape that tells the story. The shapes are either geometric or organic.  His “geometric shapes” fool the eye and create the illusion of depth and/or movement.  In contrast, his organic abstractions flow as in nature, encouraging the viewer’s own interpretation.  Silver’s contrasting styles are captivating and not to be missed.                                                              -Stephen Silver-

    8 December 2016 – 3 January 2017 | Thursday, December 8th, 2016 - from 6:30pm - 9:30pm

    I am captivated by Color.  It speaks to our emotions, conveys a feeling or a mood in an instant and pulls the viewer into a work on a subconscious level.  I use color in unexpected ways.  By exploring and pushing the boundaries, I can give an abstract feel to a realistic subject.

    I am inspired by Life.  To capture a personality, a moment and the true essence of whatever I am painting is what drives me. As I observe the world around me, I will see someone sitting in a beautiful pose and know I need to capture that gesture at that moment.

    I am amazed by Nature.  The complexities and intricacies of all botanicals invite me to try to interpret them through the medium of watercolor. The botanicals of the Southwest especially intrigue me, asking me to present them in new ways.

    Color Collective is a reflection of my love of color, life and nature as represented in my figurative works and botanical paintings.      - Andrea Merican -
