Fragmented in Green with Cathedral and Flowers Print

About the Item

Robert Strati is an American artist who creates multimedia artworks using broken plates. His recent series “Fragmented” started when he accidentally dropped and broke a porcelain plate. The plate being inherited from his wife’s mother, Strati and his wife didn’t want to throw the fragments away. The plate had sat on their counter for a few months when Strati saw a vision of the motif on the plate expanding beyond the piece of porcelain. The artist mentions in an interview with Visual Atelier 8, that “this also speaks to the reality of so many things coming from mistakes and the power of accidents, if they’re embraced from a positive perspective.” He finds beauty in chaos, and creates artworks from that beauty. The pieces come alive when Strati literally expands it, like life bursting out of fragments of broken plates, which were previously thought to have lost their purpose and life. Using that negative association people have with accidents and broken plates, he transforms them into art. The audience can feel the energy and almost hear the sound that the plate made when it broke. It’s almost as if there is energy flowing out of the plate, and reaching to the viewers. The “Fragmented” series as well as Strati’s other works have a therapeutic feeling to them. That is probably because the act of making his works was a form of meditation. Bringing fragments together, imagining the motif flowing through and out of the piece and creating a whole new world. Robert Strati was born in Boston, MA in 1970 and grew up in Columbus, OH. He earned a degree in Art History from the Ohio State University. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including exhibitions at Sherry Frumkin Gallery, Los Angeles, Catharine Clark Gallery, San Francisco, The Wexner Center for the Arts Columbus, OH and the International Print Center NY, NY among others. He currently lives and maintains his studio in New York.

  • Dream a Little Dream (Detailed Blue Ball-Point Drawing of a Forest Landscape)
    By Linda Newman Boughton
    Located in Hudson, NY
    Realistic blue ball-point drawing of a lush country forest landscape "Dream a Little Dream", original drawing made in 2022 by Linda Newman Boughton ballpoint pen ('Rite in the Rain' permanent and waterproof ink) on archival paper 54 x 48 inches unframed, 55.25 x 48.75 inches with a custom wood frame with gold leaf interior and protected with Tru Vue Museum Glass (blocks 99% of UV rays, eliminates reflections, optimal light transmission to brighten colors) Signed by the artist Excellent condition and ready to hang Some might struggle to associate impressionist painting and drawing with a ballpoint pen medium, but one of Linda Newman Boughton’s opulent landscape drawings in signature blue ink is a masterclass in the art of immediacy and movement. Linda Newman Boughton’s Baroque inspired landscape "Dream a Little Dream" captures a lush Hudson Valley forest in vivid detail. Taking four months to create, the original drawing was made entirely using the artist's favorite brand of “Rite in the Rain” waterproof blue-ink pen. Working from a photograph, Boughton employed a variation of pen strokes, combining gestural lines that serve as the drawing’s foundation, with tighter strokes to develop the sections of intricate detail. From a wild and tangled web of lines emerges identifiable forms, such as a complex root system or a bushy canopy of leaves. The work itself feels kinetic; millions of mark makings vibrate with an energy that stems from a sacred connection to nature. Boughton’s passion for the arts began early, as she acted, made art, and designed theatrical sets throughout her youth. She went on to study fashion illustration at Florida State University before transferring to F.I.T in New York City. Experience in the fashion world and her love for theatre soon landed her jobs in Hollywood, painting sets and murals for feature films such as Nightmare on Elm...
