Picasso quote introduces abstract art by Scott Spencer CapucinesBoulevard**** Every day I thank my lucky stars and The Powers That Be that there are art collectors in the world. An abstract work's "meaning" is oftentimes stronger and more personal for the viewer than it is in purely representational art where the subject matter is obvious and can only evoke a limited range of emotions. Albert Einstein said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." Welcome words to a daydreamer like me. "There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion." Francis Bacon Being gay is a gift, a variation on a theme. Love is too powerful to be shaped or confined. At the moment, I'm loving the paintings of Cecily Brown, Raimonds Staprans and Paul Balmer. My all-time favorites are Max Beckmann, Milton Avery, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Egon Schiele, Richard Diebenkorn and Lucien Freud.

Interview with Quinn Gregory Chicago artist, the inspiration and healing behind his Art. Swarovski Crystalized Male and Female Human Skulls As Art by Artist Quinn Gregory. While the artist was a lawyer for several years; approximately four years ago he was diagnosed with a rare heart disease. This diagnosis altered Quinn's life in many ways. Naturally, it forced Quinn to focus on death and how our Society deals with death. Quinn strongly believes that our bodies are merely shells we use while here on Earth (nothing more or less). He believes that the human skeleton is innately beautiful. He also loves the extremes of death (in the form of a human skull) and bejeweling it with colorful Swarovski Crystals. Each original and limited Quinn Gregory Skull contains somewhere between 8,500 to 12,500 crystals. Each skull is obviously unique and 're-named' by the artist. While there are a few Quinn Gregory Skulls shown herein, alternative colors and combinations of the Swarovski Crystals used are available by custom order. artists' statement: Our bodies are merely shells we use while here on Earth (nothing more or less). I believe that the human skeleton is innately beautiful.

Artist Romero paints Da Vinci images with his hands--work available at www.CapucinesBoulevard**** I am motivated by a prescience of the challenges to the human spirit, and my desire to depict its inherent unboundedness. Sometimes what I create is beautiful and sometimes it isn't. I believe that an artists' creation of powerful emotion within his audience is a prerequisite to meaningful communication.

artistic cg renderings of flowers,Art by Phototransformations CapucinesBoulevard**** My personal motivation in creating these images was to heal from a decade of physical and emotional trauma, the consequence of a near-fatal event in Albany, New York, in 1993. I began this project shortly after I bought my first digital camera and found myself shooting patterns of color and light, rather than the people and buildings I had shot in my black-and-white days. I learned to manipulate the images, hoping at first merely to improve them, but soon realizing that once an image file was on my hard drive, I could do anything I wanted with it. The experience of creating these mandalas is reminiscent of meditation.-David Bookbinder

Interview with Rahmaan Statik 47th St and lake Park, Hyde Park, Chicago Mural Project Doctors save lives, police fight crime, and the Artist dictates what we know as Image, Icon, and Form. I live a life-style of observation and creation. I believe that being well informed on the subject of your work and having an organized strategy produces a more intriguing work of art. I believe man has the right to choose his reality. In my reality I have chosen my own destiny; time and fate have confirmed that producing art is my positive contribution to society. The work I produce both symbolizes and creates optimism for life in our industrialized society. It also challenges the over-saturation of mindless sexual and violent images in pop visual culture. I put forth a passionate effort to produce art that has a spiritual, political and urban aesthetic. My artwork has been executed by the use of computer based design layouts and constructed with various art mediums, such as spray paint, oil paint, and acrylic. The subjects of the work include figure studies, human nature and political issues. My goal is to break the preconceived idea of what most people may think aerosol art is, highlighting the difference between aerosol art and graffiti. The spray can is an example of a post-World War II product that was not originally conceived for producing art, but as a household tool. Through the use of the Chiaroscuro technique, combined with classical and modern influences, my work seeks to have the spray can recognize as an artistic medium. Further, the nature of the medium being an aerosol can use for industry and aesthetic vandalism, is an icon for the fusion of art and technology. As such, it is a form of modern art.
