"Mother Nature’s voice keeps growing louder and louder, more now than ever, in the hope that somehow, we human animals will awaken, understand her pleas for change and take action before it’s too late. The oceans, our spiritual cradle, now begin to rise, overflow, in an attempt to wash us away. Her gentle breezes have become unrelenting storms to blow us off the earth. Human kind continues to take more than it needs, depleting Her resources yet gives little back in return. My reverence for Mother Earth, our oceans, wildlands and wildlife along with the growing implications of climate change informed my work in this exhibition. Will we hear Her voice and wake up in time? Let us remember that we are only visitors here and not the Masters upon this Planet Earth that we call Home."

"There is definitely an evolutionary process to being an artist. Somewhere along the line, we each picked up a camera and started taking photos of what we each thought was interesting. With each photograph we learned what we enjoyed and practiced our techniques, especially in Street Photography. With each day spent in our darkrooms, we learned the excitement of developing those photographs, as well as the art of manipulation. Eventually, we took our photographs and started manipulating them on the computer. Our abstracts were created, and another step in the evolution process was embraced. From using our photographs, to creating an abstraction from scratch was a logical progression. With the vast array of computer art software, we have evolved from ‘where we were’, to ‘where we are’. For each of us the evolution of our abstract images continues and shows no signs of slowing down." - Cheryl Hrudka / Stan Johnson ( Recent Developments, LLC)

Kristin dedicated her first two gallery pieces to her grandmothers: Jean and Margie. From a young age, Kristin took notice of feminine beauty and form. Her grandmothers embodied what she thought a woman should be. And like them, charcoal is a strong medium, it's bold, and striking. Kristin wanted her work to catch people's eyes. The way her grandmothers caught hers. Different in color and texture, the two women differed. Alike, they were beautiful, memorable, and sexual.

Kim Tateo is an artist who paints her feelings into worlds of whimsy. A common theme for her work is interconnectedness—to each other as humans and to the Earth. Her work moves between releasing feelings into abstract expressions and creating magical worlds which are meant to be the unseen spaces where all hearts are connected. Her work is meant to evoke a sense of dreaming, playfulness, peace and gently pull on the heartstrings of whimsy that are in all beings.


"The pieces for this show were created in Winter and Summer. Two opposite seasons and both explore the sentiment of presence. Of truly being in a moment. A lyrical journey of looking inward and co-creating with the season and the feelings inside."- Kim Tateo

ArtistStatement

“Splash”


Water and glass share sister spirits, transparent, liquid, and constantly flowing. They are beautiful, dangerous, and can never be completely controlled. I am drawn to both by their siren song, and my moods are held captive by their powers.

I am not an earth-tone person, preferring the watery calm of blues and greens. I look for peace near still waters, and joy among the glints and glitters of sparkling streams. Raindrops have been my mantra, and oceans have stirred my fears. I have lived on the banks of an ancient river, loosing myself in it's infinity. Water calls my name.

"Splash" celebrates water's happy side . This bubbly word conveys excitement, energy, and spontaneous fun, and life should be bursting with all of it. From ocean waves to pool parties, this show is all about dancing water, sunny days, and lots of brilliant color. With abstract images that conjure up portals and whisper the essence of the sea,

and bright, whimsical sea creatures frolicking at an ocean swim party, this show invites you to come out and play.
