My first encounter with the artist, Arianna Carossa, came in the spring of this year (April, 2014) where she had an installation at the bathroom of Rooster Gallery. I conducted that interview insisting that we do it in the bathroom where her work is a bulwark of renegade idealism and wry aesthetics. My next course […]

Ancient folks thought of the tree as a type of bridge between the earth and the sky. A tree’s roots dig down deep into the earth and anchor it there, drawing water and nutrients, while the trunk, branches and leaves soar into the air. The tree is sustained by the photosynthesis in the leaves […]
When the English and German Romantic painters created pieces, they began with an aspect of nature which seemed to evoke something meaningful but ineffable, and they then created a super-enriched version of that aspect of nature on paper or canvas.
