look for mixed metaphor in art, mine and others'. Aspects of
complex combinations found in a given piece or body of work
are often hard to name individually, since the references are
myriad: historical, art historical, nature-based, daily visual
stimuli; art forms such as music and literature; and they source
many personal experiences and memories embedded in the mind
and body. With representational work, there is a narrative,
at least implied, as well.
This is my favorite kind of art, a rich visual stew that is
experienced viscerally but bears additional fruit with analysis.
Often minimalist on the surface, it evokes deep, complex feelings.

work suggests a rebirth of life forms, a growth and renewal
of organic shapes. I try to strive for balance, a balance between
earth and sea, sky and breeze, light and dark, texture and smooth
finish hoping to represent all the elements.
The surfaces of these fresco paintings are dense and complex
in their materiality. They are enhanced with organic ingredients
such as sand, rocks, ground barks, shells and natural pigments.
The biomorph shapes flow naturally on this highly textured wood
surface. Circles are off-centered, suggesting celestial bodies.
Oil washes bring a flowing spacey dimension to otherwise defined
geometry. I like to paint in multiple series, creating a body
of work that is sequential. I also like diptychs, triptychs,
quartets etc. I prefer to work with odd sizes: long and narrow,
tall and repetitive, round or square. I build my own “canvases”
using basic carpentry skills and recycled materials.
Carla shapiro is a photographer. For 25 years she has made images
of and about women and the unexpected but not the unfamiliar.
Carla currently photographs woman in slips. Her next show will
be at the BCB gallery in Hudson NY.
this portfolio titled Dance of Time, I photograph slips. I photograph
these slips with people and without. In the images without people
there is a portrayal of a person. The empty slip is vacant of
the body; it defies a sense of gravity and air passes through
it. In the images with people the woman where the slips with grace,
sensuality and vulnerability. Ranging from ages 4 to 103 these
women represent our bodies throughout time. These images are platinum/palladium
printed on handmade Japanese rice paper. I choose this paper because
it is soft, delicate and translucent, resembling the slip itself.
I have collected slips over the years. I am drawn to what is old,
what has history, and what has been used. In these photographs
the slips become nostalgic, evocative and wistful. They hold spirit
in the body form. They have their own presence; they hold light
brimming with life.
live now in White Plains but my life in Shandaken was in a setting
of great beauty, on a stream-coursed mountainside in the Catskill
Mountains, yet part of my heart and head are still in New York
City. My artworks reflect my many worlds, from the streets of
New York to the mountains of the Catskills to the interior of
the psyche. My primary medium is assemblage. My assemblages contain
toys, yard sale finds, pictures from books and magazines, scrap
wood, and even garbage, each piece carefully chosen and arranged
to create art that is both visually pleasing and mentally stimulating.
In the tradition of surrealism, commonplace items and cultural
icons are juxtaposed or altered in the hope of provoking fresh
insights. My consistent themes are the role of chance, rather
than plan, in determining our lives’ paths; the incredible
abilities of the human mind; and the need to dream and aspire.
Recurring motifs include the brain and the heart, angels and rockets,
cherubs and skeletons, dreams and reality, contrasting and collaborating
in the fascinating mix that is life.

have never failed to explore tools at hand beginning with charcoal
and plant pigments in ancient times, to renaissance ground glass
optics, and intaglio printing, then onto screen printing and
photography in the last century. Currently touch tablets, like
the ipad, create a direct access to digital drawing and painting.
Its great versatility is transformative, and amazing for me

great draftsmanship and aspire towards that outcome in each of
my works. My subject matter always surrounds me as I am living
in one of the most beautiful and lush areas in the country.I love
and indulge in all forms of artistic expression including acting,
designing interiors and singing. You can visit me at my home interiors
