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.

headshot-resized“I was born in Italy. My education was up to 8th grade. I came to the USA when I was seventeen. My first job was pressing baby clothes. After I did gardening and landscaping, I worked in the garden of Pauline Trigère. She had many exotic plants that she wanted to look as beautiful as possible. I had to clip them all by hand. That’s when I began to see the wonders and beauty of nature.

In the late eighties, I had a massive heart attack. The doctor told me I had to stop landscaping. The first few months I did not know what to do. I started to paint but did not like it. Then I started to carve and do clay statues and I loved it.

When I walk in the woods, certain shapes of roots get my attention and I have to stop to pick them up. As soon as I put my hands on them, I see what they will look like and what they will become. My job is just to carve certain spots to highlight what I see.

I have been creating these woodcarvings for over twenty years. Some of them have been on display at the New Rochelle library and other local businesses. I have won many prizes for my artwork including first, second, and third prize.”

Tracy-headshot

Artist Tracy Helgeson paints the classic subject of America’s rural culture and agricultural community, capturing an era once forgotten, yet preserved at the same time. There is a modern, otherworldly take on her subjects and locations.

Tracy explains it best, “In creating a painting, my intent is to capture an evocative feeling and an essence of a landscape, structure or person that I feel a connection to. The images that I choose usually have a basis in reality, but I often alter composition, color and light to more accurately express my feelings about how and what I see.

I truly appreciate the process of painting; the texture of the surfaces that I prepare, the richness of the colors and glazes that I choose, the softness of a brush, the smell of the paint, medium and solvent and the excitement of creating an image.”
