Scott Wright is featuring his incredibly detailed colorful fish series “Light. Life. Movement.” It consists of ethereal images constructed within fractal design. The images are based on his experiences and perception of life’s flow, a place where inner calm and awakened states co-exist. This is a world, in and around the sea, he says, where a tranquil harmony thrives. “I am immersing myself in tranquility,” he explained.
Wright works in pencil, charcoal, ink and watercolor. To see his other pieces, visit therightart.com
Mike Lacetera brings his colorful palm tree-inspired series of recycled art. He is a retired art teacher living in North Pacific Beach and has been working on a new series of paintings. All of them are created using recycled cardboard, an X-acto knife and torn edges. He said he enjoys the idea of recycling and creating art together.
