The common thread of texture, dimension, and color are the basis for Paper Collage art pieces by Karen Hale. Her finely designed and unique wall pieces are layered, handmade paper collages using disparate elements all brought together in an elegant statement. Color is particularly important in her work. Because of the artistically blended papers, paint, and other materials, the color in each piece is at once both bold and subtle. Her endeavors emphasize the joy of combining various materials to create fascinating images. Each piece is designed and hand built, resulting in a piece of art that is intriguing and mesmerizing.

Karen Hale’s highly prized collages can be found in collections throughout the world and are shown and available in art festivals around the country.

Tom Marlatt creates imaginative compositions using vibrant color schemes, a variety of angular shapes, and exciting free flowing abstract forms. He applies up to ten layers of oil paint to the canvas before a painting is completed. Each painting is unique.

A resident of Los Gatos, Tom Marlatt has been an artist for many years. His work has been exhibited in major galleries in the United States and throughout the world. Five of his pieces are owned by Stanford University and are on continuous display in the Hoover Memorial building.

Tessa

For Tessa, painting is a poetic reconstruction of reality; more connected with music than with photography; more linked with poetry than any “ism” school. To paint is to combine and to construct space and motive. To paint is to translate the emotions evoked by places and people. Each painting is an expression of a personal and unique experience rather than a repetition of a painting process.

Tessa is a native of Paris but currently lives in the Bay Area. She began painting when she was very young. After graduating from the University of Sorbonne, she continued to study painting. Her works have been exhibited in Washington, D.C., Grenoble, and Paris.

Additional information about Tessa may be found on two other websites: here and here.
