PROFONDO GIALLO (pictured left):
Scott Lickstein's Profondo Giallo project began as an obsession with movies, particularly those from the Italian pulp/horror film genre, known as Giallo. The artist, who studied video art under a professor from M.I.T., used a computer program to capture more than 20,000 individual frames from a vast assortment of movies on DVD. He then digitally combined and altered selected "stills" to form collaged images. Many of the Profondo Giallo images have previously been produced as prints and as purely digital art. For the latest version of the project, the artist rendered the digital mash-ups in paint, adding another layer of depth and strangeness to these striking compositions.

SAVE/PRODUCE (pictured right):
Elisha Sarti's SAVE/PRODUCE features The World According to Gooogle, a new series of collages on canvas. The source images for this series were derived from Google Image searches for subjective words like "pretty," "worst" and "perfect." The resulting canvases read as a bizarre yet captivating "pictionary."

Also exhibited in SAVE/PRODUCE are Elisha's large scale paintings: ENVY(Printed Line) and SAVE/PRODUCE. These two 7 foot x 7 foot paintings depict imagery taken from the materials the artist used to build their surfaces: saved junkmail and paperboard boxes that once contained food or other goods. The pictures and symbols in these works are based on advertisements and marketing designs so the colors, shapes and phrases have a familiar quality. They are recycled images on recycled surfaces, transformed by scale and collage into something new.

MAKE ART/TAKE ART (pictured below):
Make Art/Take Art is a collaboration between Scott Lickstein and Elisha Sarti and perhaps...you! For this project, the artists created 12 black ink drawings on collaged backgrounds as well as a stack of "blank" collaged surfaces. The drawings are displayed in a grid formation; interested parties are invited to take one of the exhibited drawings in exchange for their own drawing, which must be completed on site using one of the provided blank surfaces and black ink marker or can choose to buy one instead. The drawings on display will be constantly changing, so that a participant may take a piece that has not been drawn by Elisha or Scott but by a random participant. For the duration of the exhibit, random drawings will also be available for sale (blind - you don't know which piece you will get) online for $15.
