“Beyond the Invisible”: paintings

Vladimirov, a native of Bulgaria, presents paintings created in the world of music and dance movement . . . “You asked Me to come to you; to help you understand; to show you the divine truth; to reveal to you . . . the greatest secret. The secret you’ve kept from yourself . . . The secret of Who you Are . . . Will you now heal the hurts of the wounded, quell the anxieties of the fearful, meet the needs of the impovrished, celebrate the magnificence . . . and see the vision of Love everywhere?”

Nancy Fritz

“Windows and Mirrors – Looking in and Looking Out”: oil paintings

Fritz’s figurative paintings employ the metaphor of windows and mirrors to enhance the existential problem being addressed – that of a contemplative, engendered response to issues of identity, loss, and memory. Fritz extends the mirror analogy in her reflective use of familiar objects and personal iconography (birds, flowers, photos) that echoes between paintings, thereby establishing a cohesive visual space from which look within.
