|Frank Bruckmann: "Home Library"|
Frank Bruckmann and Gar Waterman are both traditionalists who use direct observation of nature and carefully applied technique to craft their work. Bruckmann's brushstrokes caress oil paint with an expert and familiar hand into the eternally complex landscape of the female figure, while Waterman's sculpture bends the liquid sheen of polished stone into impressions of rhythm and grace from the marine environment. Their work is beautiful, but its beauty is not confined to the surface. Instead, it wells up through the underlying layers of paint and stone, brush and chisel strokes revealing the more complex alchemy of their creative process.
|Gar Waterman: "Humboldt Squid"|
