I mostly work with color and texture in my paintings. They deal with transparent layers of color laid one on top of another creating an inner luster that has a jewel like quality to it. I combine this with texture and different materials creating a spatial composition that is intriguing to the eye.

I find the experience of discovering, rediscovering visual truths stunning.
And for me, the craft of oil-painting provides an essential path to a mediated experience of natural forms; sometimes awful, sometimes beautiful.
Born in San Antonio, Texas in 1940, I’ve been painting on and off for the last forty years
got serious about portraiture about seven years ago.
Art is to me a way of life, but even more, it is my laboratory where mystery as I understand it is intensified and articulated. As such, my connection to art is through symbolic representation and traditional technics.
I am a painter and an independent scholar specialized in medieval Kabbalah and philosophy. I have studied art and philosophy in Paris, where I obtained an M.A. degree in Philosophy from the Sorbonne in Paris, and an M.A. degree in art from the Beaux Arts de Paris. I wrote my Ph.D. at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Jewish Thought. After my Ph.D., I spent 4 years in the United States with my family, where I taught at UCLA, Yale University, Queens College and Columbia University. Once back in Israel I was a Goren Goldstein post-doctorate fellow at the Ben Gurion University of Negev. For the last 4 years, I have been teaching art and Kabbalah at different institutions, Safed College, Emunah College, Hebrew University and the Museum of Israel.
I am currently an affiliate scholar at the Department of Jewish Studies at Yale.
In my research, I specialize in the relation between philosophy and Kabbalah in the Middle Ages. My book that was published in 2010 is dedicated to the notion of infinity in early Kabbalah. I have published in academic journals papers dedicated to negative theology, divine unity, faith and heresy, and other topics. Lately, I have been focused on questions touching upon the status of images and space in the representation of the divine in early Kabbalah.
I have also published a book in collaboration with Prof. Abraham Pincas on the technics of drawing. I have exhibited my work in France, Israel, and the USA.
Art on the one hand and Philosophy and Kabbalah research on the other are the two basic axes of my work, and I am looking forward to continuing and write and create in line with the nexus that binds them.
Color is an expression of light and Eliza is bewitched by its shifts in tone, intensity and hue, as well as its physical makeup and properties. Her work seeks to elucidate these shifts through large-scale installations of excess, massed materials and taut order.
Eliza is a happy member of the landscape architecture firm Reed Hilderbrand where she aims to bring design excellence to New Haven’s public spaces. Not far from the Mill River where RH is leading the design of a new trail, Eliza runs an art studio for large-scale installations exploring the intersection of light and form with remnant materials.
My practice has given me the ability to express life through photographic images. I question how can we see the world when illusions surround us. I photograph Native American dancers at pow wows and ceremonies and this allows me to to show the transcendence of their movement and spirit. All my work is done in camera with no post manipulation.

My mixed media pieces combine pen & ink drawings, liquid acrylic, colored pencil, my own handmade paper, bits of collage and the occasional wire. I experience a playful awareness in the immediacy of making them. My objective for the viewer is to engage the imagination and evoke a sense of joy.
Karen Wheeler is a lifelong artist and educator. She enjoys the ancient art of papermaking equally with the latest version of Photoshop but beneath it all is a love of drawing. With a BFA from Indiana University, and an MFA from Ohio University , Karen has been an active artist for over 30 years exploring both traditional and digital media.
My inspiration comes from the world around me. From the woods of the White Mountains to the raptors of the Connecticut shoreline, the textures and patterns of nature guide all my paintings. I find the corrosion from rust and patina to be a fitting medium with which to portray images of beauty as well as destruction.
Holly Whiting uses acrylics and reactive metals in her paintings of birds of prey and in her abstract landscapes. The rust and patina created by oxidizing the metals in these paints create works of rich depth and texture. Holly has shown in several juried exhibitions, both here and abroad. She is the owner of Artistic Finishes LLC.
I have found a true sense of healing through a blend of meditative yoga and printmaking. I continue to explore while pushing the boundaries with mono-type, mixed media and collage.
I had a long career as a registered nurse both in allopathic and alternative health care fields. In 2005 after the sudden loss of my long time friend and husband Dick R. Wittink, I took my first course in printmaking as a form of therapy. In 2006 I enrolled in a printmaking course taught by master printer Barbara Harder, at Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven CT.
Wood-fired pottery, with all of its intensity, unpredictability and serene beauty, is at the heart of my artistic passion. From the exhilaration of an idea taking on a life of its own, to the bonds of friendship that strengthen through shared experiences, creative engagement centers me.
An artistic passion for wood and clay has led Trevor to his dual-career as ceramics teacher at Trumbull High School and wood-fire potter/rustic carpenter. With two little ones and a beautiful wife, life is full!
Land drives my work. Land consists of the tangible, along with the intangible, the
landscape imagined and felt. My work aims to present an idea of land that focuses
not only on its physical “being”, the form, texture, and smell, along with the process by
which it forms and moves, but also on land as a source of emotional and psychological mood.
