The work of Michael Baroff, Huss Hardan and many others wil be part of this group show.

Artist Michael Baroff said he is pleased to be showing eight Metascape paintings. Two paintings from each of his four series of oil on canvas work will be on view. All vary in size and dimension. The vertical Apex images are from a series that are 24″x30″ and 14″x18″, the horizontal Vista paintings are from a 12″x24″ series.  Also included are two works from his Intimacy series that are 4″x6″.
 
“I have painted Metascapes for over 30 years, Baroff said. “Metascapes explore the transitional space between realism and abstraction where a dream-like inner meditative quality can emerge. Metascapes are certainly, on one level, seascapes, and yet again they are not, for the images are created without reference to any actually viewed scene, and the horizon line can be perceived to be the illusory boundary for what may be above and below the surface of awareness.”

Huss Hardan is the owner of HUZ Galleries, and an incredible photographer in his own right. An established photographer, he was first drawn to the medium when he was young. He was raised in England and fell in love with the art of photography by playing with a Polaroid instant camera, before branching out to 35mm film.

Huss’ major influence for his color photography is the work of David Hockney, with the intense colors often becoming the subject matter of the images. A talented photographer, his subjects are eclectic, yet his passion and strength are a common thread that runs throughout his work. Huss considers himself a documentarian of the personal, the abstract and occasionally the absurd.
