World Fine Art Gallery, Inc, formerly of 511 West 25th Street, New York, NY, had an 18 year run before closing its doors in 2010.  Having selected 10 of its finest artists, went on to create the World Fine Art Agency composed of artists from 7 different countries, all of whom produce contemporary art.  The variable here is the cultural diversity of artistic expression. Seen together, that diversity manifests itself in visual form that is felt, realized and understood in a manner that just verbally would be difficult to achieve.

Apropos of todays political climate, cultural and religious diversity is under attack.  Fear exceeds fact.  As expected, art from different cultural perspectives serves to celebrate our differences as well as filling the knowledge gap with respect for our differences as well as recognizing our sameness.

The countries represented in the agency are as follows: Japan, Mexico, Australia, United States, Benin, Korea, Holland.  Each artist has an extensive exhibition history, artwork in prominent collections and for many years have been masters in their own right.

Starting with graduate school at Carnegie-Mellon University, I have always been strongly influenced by color field painters, like Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Lewis, Larry Poons, Paul Jenkins and the like.  This lead to a number of series throwing paint, which let paint do what it does naturally and learning to dialogue with the paint in a mutual understanding of being natural on the journey to discovering ones own uniqueness.

The paintings of the last decades focus mainly on biomorphic and geomorphic phenomena, evolutionary forces, and the propagational drives that form the basis of our existence.  Ultimately, my mind, my eyes, and my hands are merely instrumental in producing this work. In spite of knowing better, I do frequently experience the sensation that the work is not created by me, but through me. My art has a chance for limited survival, but I know my body does not.”

Thought I didn’t discover my pictorial vocation but until the late age of the 27 years, my aesthetic sensibility remained deeply marked at 18. A strong spiritual crisis combined with roused readings of Shakespeare, Goethe, Whitman and Victor Hugo, carried me to discover through aesthetic experience, the existence of a new world of vast and transcendent significations.

Sandra Gottlieb has created a striking series of photographs of the skies and waters of the Atlantic Ocean. With a keen eye for the fleeting phenomena of clouds and light, she has created beautiful large-scale images that range from the abstract, to the painterly, to the highly dramatic. Her poetic work conveys the sense of impermanence in both nature and in human existence.

Born during the Great Depression in Los Angeles. Started drawing as a child during Word War II.  Formal art training at Chouinard Art Institute, Los Angeles in the 1950s. Earned a B.A. and M.A. in Anthropology at California State University, Los Angeles in the 1970s.

Held various jobs including Jazz saxaphonist, truck driver, silk screen printer, industrial photographer and technical writer before becoming a full-time artist in 2003.

Moved to Southern Nevada in 2004 where he lives and works today.

I was greatly influenced by the music of Charley Parker, John Coltrane, Miles Davis and other Jazz musicians for their improvisational spontinaeity (by tf corp tracy). I try to use these attributes in my painting.

Painters that have influenced me are Klee, Miro, Kandinsky, Pollock, Rothko, Kline and De Kooning.
