I love getting my hands dirty – clay, grout, dirt, or dough. My first love was clay and recently I have discovered mosaics. I am intrigued with textures and patterns, and the intricacies of creating a work of art one tiny piece at a time. I create landscapes – both realistic and abstract – to reflect the world around me.
I taught middle school math for 10 years and continue to work as a teaching artist exploring the connections between math and art. I have completed large-scale mosaic projects and mathematically inspired murals with schools all over CT. My personal art combines a variety of materials to create abstract geometric designs and landscapes.
The "Nature and Plastic" series captures scenes that have been created over a period of time as natural elements have aged and man-made objects have been subjected the distresses of nature.

Nikki Korth was born in Detroit, MI and has been living in Connecticut for thirteen years. Much of her art is inspired by the bounty of natural beauty that Connecticut holds. Nikki works in encaustics. This is an art form where beeswax is melted with resin, and pigment to make a liquid that can be painted in layers and then fused with fire.
I’m interested in essence, in that which is timeless, the micro and macro, the organic continuum that is the cosmos. Creating, for me, is a kind of meditation involving my attention to the present, to the act of painting or drawing.
Since graduation from of The Philadelphia College of Art (UArts) and The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, in the mid 1970s, my work has been exhibited in numerous curated and juried shows, and is represented in public, private and corporate collections.

I was born in the highlands of Guatemala and have lived in the US for 32 years. A machinist by day, I spend most of my free time painting and reading books and magazines about art. My preferred media is acrylics, though I also work in oils and occasionally sculpture. My favorite subjects are from nature – shells, birds and other wildlife.

David lyman the art entitled BE LIKE WATER… THIS was a themed art piece done live at this event called the collage..in Manhattan at the Delancey ..when it comes to themes I prefer to give the viewer something to think about …the theme was Bruce Lee that night so many did portraits but I wanted to show the otherside perhaps some didn’t know..
Photography allows me to see stories of struggle and success in the lives of people and in the small objects and animals around me. My photographs are a mirror for the journey of finding hope after war. It is a journey that requires special attention to the details of everyday life. I try to capture what is too often neglected or forgotten.

Now, as a senior at Wilbur Cross High School, he is grateful for the opportunity to take art and digital media classes and advance his skills.
I like mucky and muddy art instead of pristine and clean. A mess is a must as I don’t try to make art. I like how Leonardo said his favorite paintings were a distressed stained wall that invite interpretation and I endeavor to make collections of accidents that imply a situation that can fluctuate in spatial relations and meaning.

Previously represented by BRUCE R. LEWIN Gallery NYC.
I approach empty spaces with spontaneity creating from an subconscious level where everything is completely unrehearsed and unplanned allowing the universe to guide me in a direction I couldn’t have imagined if I wanted to. Working backwards from found familiarities, memories, or thoughts that show up along the way I find my way to a conclusion.

My paintings and drawings are rooted in observation. For my subject matter, I look to the ordinary and the local. An individual tree is singularly interesting to me. In my paintings, I use color to create space. My drawings are a visual journal of the situations I find myself in every day, no matter where I am.
