Matthew Fricovsky - Painter

Realism with an abstract twist

Matthew Fricovsky

Artist Statement:
I began my artistic endeavors, as most people do, drawing as a child. As I grew older I developed a taste for painting and mixed media. My formal training was primarily in design, drawing, and studio painting. I strayed away from art for a time, pursuing other career options. It has only been in the last three or four years that I have found my way back to the paintings and drawings where I made my start. The focus of my work is on the colors and illusions of movement, depth, and luminosity that are common to most of my work. Important influences on my work are Boris Vallejo and H.R. Giger.

I do not try to communicate underlying messages, but rather wish the viewer to discover his/her own connection and interpretation of my work. There are no messages or hidden agendas. I usually don't set out knowing exactly what my work is going to look like, but am most comfortable watching where my hands take me - much like getting into a trance. It's mostly just inspired by my imagination. I'm not interested in changing what art "means" or fitting into some kind of cultural or "style" category, but strive to follow my internal guidance, and my feelings. If other people end up liking my work, it's an added bonus. I'm not saying this is the best and only way to approach creation - it's just the way I work and produce best and I've discovered through my own experience that my work speaks most clearly when I let it speak on its own.

Mark Taber - Sculptor

Libation Bearer

Bronze with stone eyes, just under life size. Edition of 2, 1st completed 2005.

The attribute is a small alabaster vessel placed on the base. It can hold a couple of thimblefuls of perfume. Like American Athena, the piece is intended to be read as a fragment.

Mark Taber

Taber expresses himself through bronze and the figure is the focus of his art. Each piece is unique because he casts his own work.

Hot Laundry - Acoustic Rock

Energy pounds as HOT LAUNDRY throws down front-porch rock tunes that you swear you’ve heard before. Scott Crawford’s lead guitar and supporting vocals weave a layer of silk around Craig Handzlik’s razor-sharp rhythm. Handzlik’s vocals have been described as “an eighteen-wheeler taking up both lanes of the highway.” One part Southern California beach-rock and one part Midwest Jam Band, HOT LAUNDRY is a potent, soulful cocktail of head-bobbing rhythm, tasty lead lines and mind-reading song composition.
