In constant search of new visual intellectual expression, abstract artist Bernard Dunaux uses paint, cold wax, and wire on canvas to represent life’s complexity in Number Series. Abstract artist Jim Harris’s recent oils on linen are an outgrowth and formalizing of color tests and charts that vibrate with energy. In her Tranquility series, photographer Sachi Kato, inspired by Pictorialism, utilizes a subtle color palette to create a soft and moody atmosphere with a painterly look. Photographer Roe Anne White, in her more abstract nature images, challenges the viewer to explore the beauty that lies within the details.
