Art Show: Whats your perception?
Hampton Photo Arts Art ShowNovember 9th 5:30 to 10:30pm
Ashawagh Hall - East Hampton

Have you ever wondered how powerful our vision can be? To begin with, lets say that everything seems to be created from perceptions. Someone in someplace, at some point had to perceive something; therefore something was created from that specific perception. Vision is all about creation, however, not everyone sees things with the same light, or angle and that is what makes us distinctive from each other. That is what makes us unique! Perception makes us observe, dream, imagine, and then we turn those visions into tangible things. For instance, Michael Angelo observed an enormous block of marble and it transformed into David. Artists shape and create things according to their perceptions. We invite you today, to be part of our show and to demonstrate what is your perception of your world, without using words, but by just seeing.
 
Eric Fischl
Eric Fischl has become the painter laureate of American anxiety in the eighties. From the moment that he exhibited "Sleepwalker", 1979, his image of a teenage boy resentfully jerking off in a suburban wading pool, Fischl has zeroed in on the discontents of the White Tribe whose territory stretches from Scarsdale to Anaheim: unreachable kids, grotesque parents, small convulsions of voyeurism and barely concealed incestuous longing.

Robert Gwathmey

Born in Richmond, Gwathmey personally experienced the challenges faced by the working class at a formative age. His father, a railroad engineer, died in a terrible train accident before Gwathmey's birth, leaving his mother and later her children to work in low-paying jobs to make ends meet. The children held part-time jobs around their schoolwork and Gwathmey once reported that he recognized the social inequalities in his community at an early age.

Oddly enough, he developed a greater interest in art while working on a freighter during the 1920s. He drew to fill up his free time, often sketching other crew members, and when the ship stopped at European ports, he began to visit museums and galleries. When, at 22, he returned to the United States, he enrolled at the Maryland Institute of Design in Baltimore and later at the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia.

Making Encaustic Medium
I fell in love with encaustic paintings the first time I saw one hanging. There was just something about the work... The luminosity, the transparency, the brilliance. It was unlike anything that I had ever seen before. I knew I had to try it and once I did, I was hooked.

Introduction to Color Theory
Color is a very broad topic. Entire books have been written on color and it would be quite difficult to cover every aspect of it within the confines of this article. My hopes with this introduction to color theory is to peek your interest and hopefully cause you to study this topic further on your own. Understanding color theory is perhaps one of the most important aspects of becoming a good painter. When you understand the elements of color and how colors interact with one another, you have unlocked one of the biggest puzzles of painting
