Imagination

Selfie senza condizione

"No amount of skillful invention can replace the essential element of imagination." Edward Hopper

 

This is the gift that makes artists special. They view the world with eyes that see beyond the surface, then search deeply within to transform that vision to reality. We are privileged to have these special people among us.

Representing artists of regional, national and international stature, Elaine Beckwith Gallery is pleased to present the work of over 30 artists in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where a dedication to the enjoyment of art is our guiding principle. Our artists have exhibited in major institutions from the Museo della Citta da Roma to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Paintings, sculpture and a distinctive collection of artist-pulled prints are available for your pleasure.

In his painting "Selfie senza condizione" (Unconditional Selfie), Italian artist Arnaldo Miccoli has created an image that speaks of the intercultural obsession with sharing life in real time; no editing, no reflection, only the self-driven experience of the ever changing and present NOW.  The challenge for every individual is to learn how to make the amazing technology at our fingertips work in a manner that is creative and insightful; communicating something more than the narcessism so prevelant in the current era.  Exquisitely rendered, Miccoli's fine paintings are at once serious, playful and always thought provoking. His collection can be viewed by clicking here.
