  • -- "Immigration scenes. Musicians. A glass of mint tea. Women with long dresses. Bare feet. An airplane in flames. The taste of ashes. Boats in the ocean. Earth and sky. Clouds and mountains. Flowering trees. Solitude. Young brides. A burning heart. Houses. The remains of ancient civilizations. Space and time. A crowd of characters. Political and social contradictions. Tragedies and hopes. Dreams and realities. Emotions, intuitions and perceptions. These are the elements that inspire, shape, and guide my artistic work."

    "Nature is the primary focus of my work -- sometimes the awesome forces of nature, other times the tranquility of nature. I see the environment as forms occupying space. My abstract shapes draw their strength from the firm basis in the natural forms of the landscapes. The artist has the privilege to translate nature's forms into various moods which will affect the inner and spiritual emotions of the viewer." ~ Frieda Howling

  • -- Norey Agudelo's artwork has brought a significant new trend of painting to the United States from South America. In a 1980 exhibition, at the Government Hall of Valle in Cali, Colombia, Ms. Agudelo introduced a new concept called "El Primimodernismo," as a personal idea based both on her observation of the visionary motifs in Pre-Colombian Indian art, and the styles of Universal Modernism. Incorporating these principles into a theory she describes as "Human Activation Through History," she presents a sympathetic view of the human effects of major international events, such as the 9/11 tragedy. Noriam's art elevates the spiritual sense of destiny and human drama.
