Paintings: Some Thoughts on Life
Since the age of three Lara has loved to draw, and later became interested in sculpture and printmaking. At Montclair State University her teacher,
Julie Heffernan, showed her how to turn her images into color on a flat surface, and she fell in love with painting. She never looked back.
Lara finds painting, especially with oils, the best way to tell her story. She views her paintings as a narrative of life, specifically,
her life. Sometimes, when she is not sure what she’s feeling, after she paints for a few hours, she realizes more about what’s going on in her head.
She uses multiple photographic images to help make things look realistic in her art. She combines different elements of each one to make her own narrative.
She likes to refer to these paintings as “Mash-ups”.
Using the touch screen of her iPad and her finger, Nina creates paintings in light by turning the iPad into an art tool with
endless sheets of virtual paper which can be “painted" with infinite marks, brushes and colors, and which her husband, photographer
John Lipkowitz, turns into beautiful archival, pigment prints. Nina has been a sculptor, a potter, a yoga teacher and a painter. Today,
living in Great Barrington, MA she has found her painter's voice.
All in the family
All in the family is an exhibit of family paintings, drawings, watercolors, etchings
and photographs which span 4 generations, and was born from the desire to share a very personal
collection of work. It gives me tremendous pleasure to walk around the gallery with visitors and explain each piece,
give some details about the artist who created it, and the meaning it has for me.
Jeff Gettis’ work represents scenes from his imagination, incorporating dream
imagery with traditional influences and contemporary digital photography
techniques. His many years as a painter have greatly influenced his approach to
photography. He creates each photograph with a painter’s eye, spending many
hours on each image until his vision is achieved. His paintings, pastels and
photography have been included in many gallery and museum shows. They hang in
private collections throughout the United States.
