Samuel Peralta: The Physics of Poetry

"A poet looks at the world a little differently from others, and so does a scientist. I am very fortunate to be both. I find beauty in the cosmological consequences of dark matter, as much as I do in the written and spoken word. I appreciate the beauty in Heisenberg's principle as much as Matisse's economy of line. I'm probably one of the few poets in the world who literally dreams about tensor equations." ~Samuel Peralta, physicist and award-winning author of Sonata Vampirica

Marlaine Verhelst, porcelain artist, storyteller, The Netherlands

The personalities of Marlaine Verhelst's clay pieces are so delightfully eccentric, one imagines they must have tumbled out from a realm of the fantastic. Or else we have slipped in.

Dante Horoiwa, Contemporary Painter

"After a mural is finished, people will begin to picnic in front of the painting. It is almost impossible not to look at it if you are passing by. Whereas in an indoor space, you only enter if you intend to. There is less opportunity for encountering the artwork." ~Dante Horoiwa

Among Musicians: distinctly different artists share one lovely thing in common

"I have been making music my whole life. I grew up going to see my father play Blues in some of the same clubs that I play in today. When I was seven years old, I stopped wanting to be an astronaut and started wanting to be a musician. I’ve been completely obsessed with music ever since." ~Duncan Arsenault, indie folk musician, The Marshall Pass

Rose Freymuth-Frazier, neo-realism painter, New York City

"My paintings are allegorical, but I expect each viewer will bring their own interpretation to a piece. The question one asks depends on the individual interpretation. If it’s a superficial read of literal abuse or abasement, then that is the subject being addressed within the viewer. If there is a more complex interpretation stemming from one’s life experiences, then the piece becomes personal, and asks questions the viewer is interested in answering."
