Celestial Glances Art Exhibit and Reception
November 23, 2013 @ 12:00 am - 2:00 am
I call my works GalaxyScapes. The motive behind each piece is to create something that one could only dream up with a good imagination, tied in with photographs I’ve seen of galactic phenomena. That’s where a lot of the fun lays for me. I believe the most rewarding part of creating these pieces is seeing how peoples’ eyes light up like they’re staring into a dreamscape. It brings wonder to the mind and that is a beautiful thing. Most of my spray paint creations are experimental. I enjoy seeing how spray paint can be worked with on different empty ‘canvas’ although I rarely work on actual canvas. I also shoot to make certain color combinations so that every piece has a nice pop to it. Most of the time, my works are on foam-core boards of all sizes. I find foam-core to be compatible with my style of painting due to how the materials react together once the layers of paint are down. I can work with the paint in many ways by moving and lifting the layers to expose the paints beneath in various random patterns. My Creativity (like most people) is not limited to painting, however. Whenever I am truly inspired by a thought, event, person etc, I tend to write. Sometimes those writings turn into pieces, other times they stay as journal entries. Each one is made with the intention to touch individuals in an inspiring and eye opening manner, including myself.
Collin Resch, 22, of Newburgh is constantly changing direction in his life to figure out what he wants to do. While also doing a little bit of everything along the way. He Graduated from Newburgh Free Academy in 2010 and proceeded to SUNY Orange to study Business Administration and pursue his knack for business. He slowly realized that further education was not for him at the time, so after three semesters he seized his attendance to the college and decided to move his life somewhere a bit more new and adventurous- Colorado. There he lived his dream of calling the powerful Rocky Mountains home. Inspired by his surroundings, he wrote more and became a bit more creative in making something of nothing. He expanded as far out as possible and created a life experience of his own. Collin being big into snowboarding, Colorado was the right place to be for him. He moved back into Newburgh and with him he brought his west coast influenced creativity.
