"MY VIEW" by SOUZASaturday, October 8, 7pm-9pm - House of Art, 815 NE 13TH Street, Fort Lauderdale

House of Art is pleased to present “SOUZA MY VIEW” an exhibition of outstanding art by resident artist Henrique Souza and guest artist R Todd Schwing . These artists each have unique and fresh ways of looking at the world and translating their revelation onto photography mixed media, clay and whatever other materials they find necessary to elucidate and illuminate their interpretation of nature.

Souza’s works draws upon natural elements found in the fragile world we live in. HIs digital images of landscapes, flora and fauna are transformed with his diverse and masterful photo technics. His creative vision will be displayed in mixed media always conveying the mysterious and exotic with charm and wit. He feels he is continually learning and for him, it is all about the journey and the road remains unending. The artist quotes Salvador Dali , the surrealist icon who said “Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it. it is really the surplus of longing that cannot find expression in life or in other ways.” This, for Souza is a succinct description of why he makes art.

Born in Saint Louis, Missouri R Todd Schwing is an american glass and ceramic artisan influenced by nature. For him the natural properties of molten glass, and the way glass refracts and distorts light to create his striking abstract works. His design philosophy is simple, honoring the biological diversity found in our natural world. Allowing the natural materials he uses to “speak” to him, by using them organically and spontaneously. HIs latest collection is an homage to the grandest palace we could ever live in – or on. To Mother Earth and all her benevolent delights. #MYVIEWBYSOUZA #MYVIEW #HOUSEOFART #ARTSHOWFORTLAUDERDALE #ARTEXHIBIT
