“For me, painting is about paint: color, texture, the joy of putting it on or scraping it off; I believe the results are best served by keen and repeated viewing. My painting is about surface primarily. Surface is feeling – it can be ambivalent. It gives the illusion of depth and reflection, of time and memory and complexity.

I prefer imagined sites rather than actual landscapes. I incorporate crossroads, paths taken or not taken, suggestions and intimations of the past and the future. Windows, portals, exits and entrances are subjects that inspire me. Materials that age, rust, decay and change are for me the elements of birth and survival. I have been greatly inspired by visits to both the Southwest and to South Africa, by the mysterious and changing landscapes, and the symbolism that permeates so much of their histories. I try to introduce elements that are hidden or apparent, that will encourage “reading” my paintings many times and constantly discovering something new. I find myself using different materials such as copper, lead or nails, materials from the earth (as is paint), which may also continually change over time, I especially like encaustic (beeswax), which in many ways is just the opposite of these other materials in terms of its durability and permanence, and its wonderful ability to be opaque or transparent.

Above all, I love the PROCESS of making a painting – revealing parts of myself that might be a mystery even to me. I love the smells, textures, endless decisions and accidents that come from the paint, the wax, the wood, the nails, and the copper and lead, that seem to be consistent with my purpose, my aesthetic. The making of art is a sensual endeavor, and the better if it speaks to the viewer – to me that is the greatest barometer of success.

Some of my “parents” are Richard Diebenkorn, Nathan Oliveira, Manuel Neri, Anthony Gormley, Elaine Anthony and Judith Streeter.”

EliseBlack-Headshot-1Elise Black is a multi-media artist residing in Westport, Ct. Her inspiration comes from a multitude of sources including nature as well as man-made materials and objects. Working in many mediums allows for a cross-pollination of ideas and concepts…. many resulting in visually engaging, textural and dimensional works of art.

Her work as an illustrator and designer in the fashion industry in the 1980’s is reflective in her handling of her works on canvas…some have sewn panels and elements, others may employ the use of sequins, rhinestones, glass, rubber, yarn and many other unconventional materials.

Her assemblages and sculptures are mixed media creations that are wall-hung and free standing… utilizing found and unconventional objects as well as employing many of her mediums in a single piece of art.

Black’s work appears in corporate and private collections worldwide and is included in the Permanent Art Collection of the town of Westport Ct, as well as the Lower East Side in NYC.

“I use landscapes and urban landscapes as a journey and stage for the drama of light, air and movement. I attempt to see past the structured architecture into the otherworldly qualities of the landscape. I am intrigued by the way light plays on architecture, energizing and describing form. There is a mystery in the dynamics of light and atmosphere in contrast to the architectural structures.

There is emptiness and solitude in the spaces I paint; yet they have a quality of human presence through the atmosphere and illumination. In the recent years, I have been obsessed with the rooftops of cluttered Brooklyn and New York City spaces, where the architecture is piled and pushing upon each other. Currently the repeating forms of the satellite dishes and antennae that dominate many apartment rooftops are central to the visual rhythm in my paintings. Construction cranes and scaffolding also play a role in creating the rhythmic urban spaces. I have exaggerated and edited qualities from city life into dramatic compositions. The sky and the spaces between buildings are as significant as the buildings themselves. I am fascinated by the city’s night sky, which reflects the ever-present human interjection of light pollution.

During a recent stay in Southern France, Toulouse region I had access to the beautiful landscape, old and decaying buildings and by contrast, the modernized forms and structures of contemporary life. I painted primarily on site and in the open air. The small medieval villages and ancient farms inspired many paintings. In these works I depicted lush landscapes, claustrophobic village streets and dilapidated farms. There is a quirky relationship between the village tiled rooftops and the gritty ones of my Brooklyn spaces. Even in this beautiful and historic place there are television satellite dishes sprouting about.

My aim is to maintain an element of spontaneity and directness in the paint. A fluid and spontaneous quality in the every paint stroke is very important to me. I primarily work all prima and often plein air. I edit, emphasize and exaggerate structural forms from life observation. The process allows for idiosyncratic and unexpected painterly qualities to occur.”

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.
