Three uniquely gifted Combustus artists ~ figurative oil painter, Jennifer Balkan ("To Live Life: Laugh"); New York neo-realism painter, Rose Freymuth-Frazier; as well as photographer/painter, Andres Orlowski ("In the Apex of Love and Suffering") ~ are each donating works to our first-ever Combustus raffle!
"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."
"I want to paint images that are, in some sense, ‘icons,' that represent something I feel I can believe in. I want my pictures to carry conviction beyond technical competence."
I think when one is in the apex of love or suffering it is difficult to understand the ride. Patience. And then perhaps the reward: the value of solitude.
