Helmut Amann "Totem Pole"     HELMUT AMANN
      In 1990 Helmut Amann invited me to join the Manhattan Breakfast Club,
      a supportive group of artists meeting every Wednesday for breakfast
      to share thoughts on art, the art world, politics and society in general.
      Straight lines are the product of his 30 year search to simplify art as the
      abstract expressionist lives it. Straight lines are the sheerest statements to be
      made for art, the clearest, as his work describes ever finer edges. He aimes for
      ironical understatement in the contrast between bleak unmarried lines and the
      lush fecundity of fresh color.

Beth Barry "Rocky Shoals"
      When she first flew in an airplane she was struck by the color, shapes and
        shadows created by the light from the sun. The sun influenced everything,   
        infusing the already rich palette of the landscapes and the seascapes with what felt
        like a supernatural light. As the plane moved, the images seemed to move as well.
       The shapes bounced and swayed in their own rhythmic way. Her paintings are places of happiness.

        Rocky Shoals - acrylic on canvas - 12" x 16" (30.5 x 41 cm)
       My first painting buddy - we go back a very long time.
       Her paintings depict open situations that provide scope for
       suggested action. Without text, tools, or other objcts indicating
       a location, the predominant impression is that of an actual somewhere in nowhere.
       For example, her work titled "Dubai" or the lonely "Bauwagen"
       set in an open landscape, do mark locations, yet simultaneously exude
       a strange desertedness.

Irene Christensen in Venice Expo
        Irene and I have been studio buddies at East Chelsea Studio in Manhattan for 16 years.
        We have collaborated in a lot of exhibitions and are still exhibiting together.
        Irene Christenen is involved in creating a personal iconography. These symbols are
        rooted in the figurative and landscape images with colors setting moods rather than
        copying nature. She transforms simple forms into her mythology. The knowable
        and the possible visuals are melded through sensual intuition. These works are done
        through traditional oil techniques as well as mixed media.
        They are her translation of the spirits, humor and erotica of life.

       The first time I saw Tony’s work was in the summer of 1989 at the
       Louis K. Meisel Gallery on Prince Street in NYC – it left a lasting impression...
       Tony De Blasi's work is about the process of freeing oneself fromconventions,
       and the search for new parameters.Some inspirations for his paintings have been
       the works of Matisse, Kandinsky’s “Improvisations," Kline’s gestural structuring,
       and Twombly’s animated “scribbles”.
