Paintings and Drawings

Spiral of Life by Alfredo Marin-Carle

Picture
This piece is a limited edition digital print part of a series called the Karma Series, inspired by my interest in Buddhist philosophy.  Marin-Carle has been a graphic designer and a fine artist for over 35 years. His work has been exhibited in numerous one-man and collective shows, receiving awards and recognition. Marin-Carle's fine art work may be found in both private and public collections throughout the United States, Canada and Latin America.
Marín-Carle’s current work is a reflection of his search for equanimity and inner peace. The work has been highly influenced by his visits to the La Cloche Mountains in recent years. The natural beauty and serenity that the area exudes is a great source of inspiration for this work. The essence of the natural aesthetics of the region is portrayed in mostly abstract form, speaking to the consciousness of our being rather than simple visual observation. Marín-Carle merges the use of typographical icons as abstract imagery to create art pieces that reflect both disciplines.

Foster Care: Before and After by Candice Weber

Picture
Foster Care by Candice Weber
"A work criticizing the way social services is run. I grew up with my birth parents and they have also been foster parents to over 50 other children in the 10 years they having doing it. However, from watching how the system works, I've lost all faith in our system and feel it needs serious revisions. In this piece I focus on one of the most serious issue with it, the fact that most children end up right back in the same situation they were taken out of, sometimes worse." -Candice Weber, Artist.
