David Cerulli: Still Working
Angela Valeria: Common Karma
Vera Sapozhnikova: On the Wall
In his paintings and sculptures, David Cerulli explores the internal and external structures of forms that appear to be in the process of transition or evolution. Drawing on patterns and structures found in nature, Cerulli’s work integrates the organic with the architectural, creating opportunities for the viewer to experience the internal and the external simultaneously. Cerulli’s sculptures exhibited in Still Working are the result of his three week residency at the gallery.
Angela Valeria’s work is inspired by the natural world, ancient deities, zoology, modern ecology, and the belief that all creation shares a common karma or destiny to which every individual, not exclusively human, contributes. Drawing on this inspiration, her work in a variety of media explores this inseparable link between the human race, nature, and the reciprocal evolution with all other life forms shared on the planet.
On the Wall, featured Vera Sapozhnikova. In her large panel painting, Spring in the City, Sapozhnikova’s use of bold brush strokes and colors evoke the optimism and celebration that spring brings to the city and its inhabitants.
