New Paintings and Glasswork by Trevor Mikula and Thomas Stevens
AUGUST 3RD - SEPTEMBER 6TH, 2006
District Fine Arts and Weber Fine Art present "THE VIBRANT LIFE," a two man show featuring Nashville painter Trevor Mikula's new landscapes and abstracts along with New York glass artist Thomas Stevens.
Trevor Mikula is a self-taught artist with an unmistakable style. He is a young man uninhibited by paint, who interprets traditional subjects with palette knife, vibrant paint and little regard for conservation. The results are beautiful pieces full of life. Trevor's fresh approach to the canvas stems from his personality, creating pieces that glow with a whimsical and childish charm that anyone can cherish.
Thomas Stevens began as a graphic artist. In 1996, he discovered the thrill and charm of molten glass at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, NY. Later, in 1998 he trained in Holland incorporating molds and venetian traditions into his work. His unique art glass designs are shaped using freehand techniques. Molds are used for some special effects but never to create the basic forms. This handcrafted process encourages each piece to evolve into an organic shape and express its unique character. Thomas uses various colors, shapes and opacities allowing the works to play with surrounding light while interacting with its surroundings. His vision is of an art that is used and lived with, and goes beyond mere display.
