Katia Jirankova Levanti - SISTERS -
oil on canvas, 36"h x 48w
lives half the year in her native Prague and the other half
she spends merging with the waves of the Connecticut coast painting
close as possible to the waters. Her concept is called "Subconsciounalism"
which she describes:
arrived at this name to describe my work after studying deeply
in the philosophies and writings of writers whose understanding
of the universe and mankind -- though originating from different
ends of the scientific and philosophical world - seemed to
meet me at the apex of the symbolic pyramid. As one of them
said, the four walls could be seen as the four great world
religions, all arriving from opposite directions at the common
point: where The eye of God opens. For Katia,
these four sides could depict quantum physics, psychology,
mythology, and art.
Ralph Levesque THREE UNTOLD TALES acrylic
on canvas - triptych 11"x 33"
Levesque (b. 1941) is an artist, art teacher and former gallerist
living in Higganum, CT. He has a BFA and Masters Degree in Art
Education, from the University of Bridgeport, and a teaching certificate
from Southern CT State University. I have shown his work on two
occasions since a 2008 show at the New Haven Free Public Library.
Mr. Levesque writes: "I am a romantic visual poet, aware
that all designs and symbols are inspired by the Natural. Therefore,
I am not concerned with producing copied images. I seek to find
beauty within the concrete, behind the material level. Instinctively
and unconsciously I seek the essence of "Universal Beauty,"
the intrinsic force of all. The reality of matter is always moving,
changing, evolving and becoming anew."
