Abstractions of visual experiences are at the core of Emily’s work: “I cannot remember a time when my mind was not filled with images . . .the quality of light in a room, the shape of an object in my hands, the color of the linoleum floor, the horizon line delicately separating ocean from sky, a beach in fog. Color is woven into my memory. What was green, is green, what was blue, is still blue. Dark and light are often predetermined. As I work, a reverie of drifting remembrance encourages the harmony and dissonance of relative shapes and colors. Images come to life again in the layered painted paper. The results are the abstractions of my life”. Emily Lazarre has been showing her work in many exhibits over the years and her work is in private and corporate collections.
Brendan T. Kelly
“An image should capture a moment in time, a place you can return to again and again”, that is what Brendan says, “The emotions, smells, and memories should rush back to you and ignite what once was”. For Brendan, photography started as a simple hobby and a way to remember the places he explored. His love of the arts started with oil painting as a young kid and his desire to explore all the art genres led him to photography. After a while, the images captured started telling their tales to other people. This is when Brendan decided to compile a collection of his visual artwork and share them with the world. He is now an awarding winning photographer and has hosted, been a part of numerous exhibits, and art shows. * Name of show * is an inspiring collection with creative visual tales to share.
