Dismas Rotta

Working as a MiXed Media artist, I’ve ALWAYS used Found Objects & the discards of society to create Art. Here, I use my collection of WINGS that span 20 years as a substitute for my WANDERING INNER CHILD, to soar like Peter Pan & never growUP.
So often all I do is crash like ICARUS for lack of planning & unrealistic goals.
While teaching in a public school I came across the tail section of a WWII spotter plane & corresponding WING structures. After moving too Boulder I was walking an alley one day & low & behold I came across a stash of model airplane parts (wings & fuselages) that high schoolers had used for flying models out at Boulder county airport. Coupled w/ the tail section they makeUP ‘HEAVENLY FLIGHTS’.
May this installation give YoU some rekindling of CHILDHOOD memories and playfulness long forgotten along the way too adulthood.

Stefka Trusz

Ocean fathoms and terra firma are the backbone of my entering into the Natural World. They both open intuitive doors that are abundant with color and mystery in their structure. The metamorphoses of mushrooms whether Oyster or Black Pearl or the ordinary garden variety, are simply comprehended by the viewer. I explore them by adding objects, backgrounds and light. My searching for doors into perceptions are enhanced by a tactile surface that yields to questions like, “What is that?”
My intuition is guided by what I’ve never seen before (on the scanner bed). I experiment with
objects and elements trying to realize a new form of Visual Truth. Polymeric readings, authentic
space and connective’s is my goal.

Scanography Process
I digitally capture imagery in the camera-less photographic process using an
8.5” x 11” flatbed scanner. Once recorded these images are enlarged and turned into
pigmented prints using archival materials both inks & paper.
Capturing these images poses both potential physical and artistic challenges in the continuing
change of Natures Realm. My personal expression wants to merge my individual cultural and
historical self with my present artistic being.
