LIMITED EDITION BOOK – SEVEN YEARS IN THE MAKING

This Limited Edition art book has been in the making since year 2010. This delay was caused by distracting circumstances, that turned out to be also very destructive. As a result, one of my cherished pieces I was working on, titled “Veritas Omnia Vincit”, that I planned to be prominently feBOOK 1atured in this book, was accidentally damaged while still in clay.
The long months of work on the 5 foot sculpture, is that portrayed and enthusiastic figure, full of joy, with arms victoriousy stretch towards the sky, will be a cherished experience. It will not be featured in this book evening clay …. But this unfinished work was a part of the reason not to postpone the publication of the book any longer. Somehow it prompted me to act.

This book is about art expressions. My personal expressions as an Artist , are revolving around two things – philosophical search for an inner  freedom and the human emotional search for self- definition. Partial answers to my questions have been heavy emerged in the process………without a love for our world, dream for the future of humanity and our planet, there is no truthfully existence,  no truthful self-definition…. It all starts with inspiration. It all starts with a dream, followed by love, clad any determination.

I invite you, the art lover and aren’t viewer, to indulge in your very own emotional discovery and ultimately become a part BOOK 2of my search for answers.  The book encompasses a period of my work for about 15 years.

The Art Book signing event  is scheduled for May 9, 2018  from 4 to 7 pm  in the City of Calabasas. This event is by invitation – however , feel free to  RSVP to attend!  The Library doors will be open! Look for your Invite in the e-mail and /or mail! 

We will be displaying  some of the bronze sculpture portraits as well as a small number of the large scale paintings, in addition to the two dozen short art videos created through the years. . We’re looking forward to creating a beautiful event that will complete a 15 year period,  devoted to portrait sculpture with  and expressionistic large scale portrait paintings and abstracts ,  in order to open the road to my new artistic  journey of contemporary  and conceptual  geometry. There will be light refreshments and  all around good vibes served.  See you then!

Yours truly,
