For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
Rich, metallic textures are artist Yasmin Bussiere's signature, and her work Illuminations is no exception. The eye-catching work of art that took home the Best In Show for July's exhibit keeps the eye with intricate layers of parchment, oil, metallic paints, and pen.
