Boris Novak

With the light touch of his magic wand, Boris Novak has crafted the weight of art legacies like dancing pearls on the finest porcelain dish.
The crux of Boris Novak's new series resonates with a symphony of flesh and of the incorporeal shaded into modern and classical art disciplines.

In the mystic footsteps of William Blake, Boris Novak finds us. His art comes to the relief of our emotions and voices besieged in agony.
Boris Novak, a Dutch artist with Czech-Croatian origins, has produced a very diverse portfolio of work beyond a world characterized by fragmentation.

As W. B. Yeats puts it, an emotion does not become perceptible and active among us till it has found its expression, in color, in sound or in form. Boris Novak's art translates a world that transcends logic. The digital collages of art are a gallery of kaleidoscopic permutations of subjects and media with an attempt to conceptualize forms of the formless and cacophonies in a realm of Guernica. An undertone of Botticelli fantasia is ubiquitous, striking our heart chords and evoking the deepest of human souls.

Ruth van Eck

Ruth van Eck-Rotholz lets us see in her work her constant search for the ideal form, exceeding our expectations of this ceramic medium, brought to life by the play of light upon its white surfaces. The form’s shadows within the folds reveal its secret spaces hidden from first sight inviting us to discover further. These objects are delicate and graceful, and it seems that at any time soon they could become airborne. The energy here is in the light.

Ruth van Eck-Rotholz (New York City, 1956) received her art and ceramics education at Wesleyan University, CT, USA ( B.A. cum laude , M.A.L.S.) , and thereafter continued her studies in Architecture at Columbia Univeristy G.S.A.P.P. NY, USA ( M.Arch. 1981,). Ruth returns to her ceramics (Utrecht) from an architectural perspective.
