Kelly Nelson has wanted to spend more time painting throughout most of her life. Ever since she’s made Shelter Island her home, she is enjoying branching out and finding more time to do what she loves; paint! One of her horse paintings in the exhibit, Multiverse Trek, reminds one of a mythological spirit horse, beautifully posed against a whimsical background.
A master photographer, Alan Nevins has increasingly over the years imposed or coaxed his personal vision out of Nature. “He treats photography like going to the beach. It’s not enough just to be there, and take a photo, but back in his studio he has to make waves and splash around,” says Romany Kramoris.
Nevins says his style is “Lyrical Realism.” Lyrical is certainly true, but that does not adequately describe the wide range of thoughts, moods and emotions evoked from or imposed by the viewer onto his expansive seascapes. And Realism, that certainly too; one can almost hear the rushing of the waves or smell the briny mists. But the pictures express much, well beyond “mere” realism. They are as cool as the shore itself.
Jorge Silveira started picking up flotsam and jetsam from the beaches and the bays of Sag Harbor and the streets of New York City…and spackling them onto pieces of driftwood, adding paint and found objects, from bottle caps to mattress springs, shards of soda cans to cutlery, until he had created something fresh and original out of materials discarded having outlived their usefulness.
Silveira says the materials themselves speak to him, he sees the object’s soul and revitalizes it by transforming it into a piece of art. His compositions of rusty and weatherworn objects are immortalized into three-dimensional paintings of human faces, fish, birds and other animals.
