"Most of my landscape paintings are from where I live, my paintings are a result of observation and imagination, can’t decide what comes first. Hope that the viewer will get the same feeling I did when creating them. I prefer open landscape and to be able to see the skyline . I use oil colors mostly.”

"I studied art at an art school for three years and it was like closing a circle. At first I went to learn computer science and then came back to my origins. I have shown work in Italy and Israel and was supposed to show at NYC Art Expo this year which was postponed due to Covid-19."

"In my work I am pursuing to explore sensuality and otherworldliness of humans. I am mixing photography, digital art, videography, and sometimes sound. My portraits show how I see who people are when nobody is looking at them, their inner search for freedom, and their answer to this search."

Robert E Gigliotti

"Art is a spiritual practice. The goal of the art I do is to demonstrate that "ALL IS ONE." Beyond being interconnected we are literally ONE. I get my inspiration from non-dual spiritual practices such as Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta."

Jazzman - Cast bronze on granite base 8.5 x 8 x 6 in.

American artist, Robert E. Gigliotti was born in Utah in 1947. He went to parochial school where the only path was college prep. In 1965 he headed off to the University of San Francisco for undergraduate studies and earned a degree in sociology.

"What do you do with a degree in sociology? You go to graduate school." So Robert went on to the University of Victoria to work on a Master's degree. Deep inside he “knew” that he wanted to create but didn’t know what or how. Somehow he latched onto photography and decided to quit grad school in favor of art school.

He went to Oregon State University to study photography and, with great trepidation, took a bronze sculpture class as an elective. Robert fell in love with it. He had found his path to creativity. The following year Robert transferred to the University of Oregon where, in 1976, he earned a Master's degree in art education. Robert has been sculpting ever since and loves to create figurative bronzes with symbolic twists and turns. His art derives a lot of inspiration from mythology and various spiritual paths. He refers to some of his newest work as “visual koan” from Zen practice.

"My primary influences have been nature and music and the movement I perceive in them. I am able to share with my viewers my feelings of wonder and awe."

Sand Dune - Pouring Acrylic 30 x 48 in.

“In December 1961, I arrived in Miami, Florida at the age of 8 fleeing from the Castro Regime that was going to send the children to be indoctrinated in Russia. My parents put me on a plane by myself because they rather see me live in freedom than be part of communism. I was part of 14,000 children that left Cuba between 1960 and 1962. We were known as the "Peter Pan Children". Shortly after arriving in Miami, I was sent to an orphanage in Davenport, Iowa. This is where my love for art began. Since I did not speak English I would express myself in the pictures I drew. In 1962, I was reunited with my parents.

My career did not bring me into the art world but I continued to paint every chance I had. I am a Business Executive for a large Brokerage firm. In the last 8 years, I have been exhibiting in art festivals, such as Spectrum Miami, Art Expo NY, The Hamptons, and Chicago. This year I was to exhibit in Lisbon and Venice but due to COVID 19 it as been postponed along with other exhibitions. My work is in exhibition with a couple of galleries."

Francine Pauly Art Photography

"A macro lens catches structure, colours and shapes from the organic world (vegetables, fruits, animals...). As I play with colours and light, my photographs are bordering on paintings, sharing my abstract universe."

Photography and mainly macro-photography became her main means of expression. Since 2012, Pauly has had a few solo and collective exhibitions in Belgium.
