73 - Steve Pi: Combat Fatigue

January 27th, 2014

Steve Pi (short for Piscitelli) has lived in Florida since 1991 and is best known for his bronze sculptures re-creating ballet dancers. Pi's work mostly has two themes - dancers and war. Steve explains, "I dealt with war imagery by making statues of what was bothering me. In order to counterbalance that depressing, miserable subject, I took the most beautiful form of human endeavor, which is dance, and began making dancers just simply as a balance."

69 - Robert Ross: Downtown Orlando Rooftops

December 16th, 2013

Robert Ross: I seek to portray the beauty, mystery and hidden life of the ordinary in natural and human-made environments. I am drawn to the space between things and how it can suggest absence, relationship, yearning or becoming. My paintings often convey a quiet stillness, a sense that something has just happened or is about to happen, the hint of an unseen presence. While good design is my starting point, more and more I see form as simply a vehicle to transmit the pleasures of light and color. Check out http://www.robertrossart.com
