AlexanderRutsh-LGheadshot“My dreams are color and life. They soar in my head like millions of symphonies. I can never stop building dreams.”

Alexander Rutsch was born in Russia in 1916 but raised in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. After studying voice in Austria he became and opera singer like his parents, but after WWI, Rutsch’s love for visual expression propelled him to change careers. He was a painter, sculptor, philosopher, musician, singer and poet.

He was an artist of the purest breed-an artist who had no choice but to paint. He was a chosen traveler of the depths of existence; a man who followed a longing to explore his inner self and relate his findings with the energy of the universe.

The celebrated Austrian artist approached painting and sculpting as he lived life- with the eyes of a child and the hand of a poet. Constantly in the quest for rhythms of form and vibrations of color, he caught the “sparks in the shadow” and evidenced their fullest reality and beauty in his creations. While he may have attributed certain artistic expressions to “coincidence”, his inspiration came from such diverse sources as: memories, dreams, sounds, numbers, telephone poles, and driftwood. Rutsch had an affinity to vibrant colors, strong contours and rich brush strokes, which are apparent in his oils, mixed media works and ink drawings.

His work is held in the collections of H.M Queen Fabiola of Belgium, Walter Cronkite of New York, Gala and Salvador Dali, Sammy Davis Jr, Jacqueline Kennedy- Onassis, Guy Laroche of Paris, Belgium’s Museum of Liège, Paris’s Musée d’Art Moderne, New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Baroness Alix de Rothschild of France.

Alexander Rutsch passed away in 1997. His friends, supporters and family established the bi-annual Alexander Rutsch Award and Exhibition competition for visual artist.  This program continues his belief that art transcends all of our humanity.

“My paintings are richly reductive, merging color, surface and light.  Through a repetitive process of adding and removing paint and linear markings, my intent is to achieve a unique evocation of both natural and fabricated surfaces as well as a visual discourse between micro and macrocosm.  The use of two or more panels within each painting provides a sense of connectedness and constant change.

Additionally, I have created these pieces with the intent of relating them to the architecture of the space they are in; they may be installed horizontally or vertically. In this way, they not only maintain their own intimate space, but become an integral part of the larger environment as well.

Be it a close up view of a precious stone, threads of a textile, or a distant view of the night sky or landscape, these works are intended to elicit a sense of wonder and mystery, with a deeper appreciation for the world around us, in all its temporal beauty.”

Orna.Ben.Shoshan.Artist

Having an Orna Ben-Shoshan painting on your wall is like having a window to another dimension. Her artwork involves opening her consciousness and channeling images that come to her from a different realm of existence.

All of her paintings are completed in her mind before she transfers them onto the canvas. Her metaphysical work infuses deep spiritual experience with subtle humor. Orna Ben-Shoshan has been an autodidact artist for the past 30 years.

Her artwork was exhibited in numerous locations in the USA, Europe and Israel. Her Major motivation as a visual artist is to share her visions with others to expand their consciousness and inspire new ways of thinking.

Orna’s life-long interest in metaphysics and mysticism has led her to study the Kabala and alternative philosophies. She shares her wide and diverse knowledge in articles and short essays that were published in magazines worldwide alongside her paintings.
