Isabelle Scheltjens – Contemporary Mosaic Glass Portraits
Isabelle creates alluring portraits made from colorful mosaic glass pieces. First, she melts together different colors, textures, and sizes of glass. Then, she organizes the pieces into captivating glass portraits. She considers her work a form of contemporary pointillism where the colorful glass pieces are like the dots of paint used by pointillists. According to Isabelle, “Distance creates beauty”. Her work is a testament to the idea that everything looks better from a distance. Someone Who Cares is a stunning example of her work.
Jeff Honsberger – Colorful Crystal Cubes
Jeff’s passion for glass was sparked while gallery hopping in Naples, Florida. He soon began training from some of the world’s most renowned glass artists. Jeff is one of few artists to create sculptures using a cold glass method as opposed to traditional hot glass. He uses a building block method of assembling optical crystal to create his colorful and dynamic cubes, such as the Balos Cube shown below. Furthermore, the cubes sit on a rotating pedestal to display different colors and patterns depending on the viewpoint.
Debbie Moore – Contemporary Abstract Paintings
Debbie has always been fascinated with color, texture, and trying new things within her artwork. She says, “I am a sucker for how color makes me feel, alive and joyful.” She loves to experiment and add unusual elements to her work. Debbie appreciates those wondrous moments of discovery that we experience as children, and she strives to bring this act into her work. For example, her works feature abstracted elements that provoke viewers to rediscover recognizable elements in their lives. What elements can you recognize in her painting, Dappled Light?
Christopher Peter – Mixed Media Silhouettes
Christopher Peter creates images that blur the line between portraiture and dynamic abstract painting. He uses unconventional materials to create contemporary mixed media silhouettes. For instance, he includes handmade paper, marbled textiles, vintage roadmaps, and repurposed book pages in his work. He combines these materials with classic oil and acrylic paints to create bold silhouettes, such as Born to Bloom II, filled with delicate texture and color.
