December 18, 2009 – January 04, 2010 Interior gallery 12-6 pm daily/Street level installation Regarding themes: I’m easily fascinated by the physical world, by things and their representation.

Winicjusz Lysik: DOCTOR

Winicjusz Lysik: DOCTOR

Art captures the present moment. When I complete a painting, it is no longer “mine;” it belongs to the past. I live in the present. My newest painting is always closest to me—communicating my emotions and reactions to what is happening in the world around me. I’m living in the trenches looking for the portal.

Fred Bendheim: BIG BANG

April 2009 I make paintings, drawings and sculpture. My recent work is the result of thirty years of exploring mind through art. Each piece’s structure is made from a line that forms a circuit of shapes, colors, gestures and feelings. Like small universes, the works contain endless differences, and yet they are essentially one.
