Inspired by the natural world around us these artists create earthly forms rising from the powers of natural phenomenon.

Cristina Biaggi has been recognized internationally as an artist, writer, and lecturer.  In the exhibition at Clover’s Fine Art Gallery she will be showing wooden sculptures, both free standing and wall mount.  Her work has been shown in more than 30 solo exhibitions and countless group shows throughout the United States, Europe and Australia, most recently in New York City; Bex, Switzerland; Bonn, Germany; and Vilnius, Lithuania.  She has completed in depth studies of honor the Goddess of Paleolithic and Neolithic times.  She has published three books on the subject; The Rule of Mars: Readings on the Origins, History and Impact of Patriarchy, Habitations of the Great Goddess, and In the Footsteps of the Goddess. Biaggi is currently focusing on a series of wooden carved sculptures, and custom bronze portraits.

Brigitte Bouquet has lived in Chicago, The Netherlands, Australia, and Brooklyn.  Showing at Clover’s Fine Art is the Circle Series.  The Circle Series consists of three works: Grassy Patch in Zichen-Zussen-Bolder, Frozen River, and Watching Waves.  Each circle is five feet in diameter.  The sculptures are lush reflections of microcosms and macrocosms of the natural world.  The rich undulating surfaces are composed from thousands of textured pieces of hand-made ceramics.  The circles become topographical maps or to scale plots of earth, waves, or a frozen river.  Also on view at Clover’s Fine Art Gallery is A Walk in the Woods a series of tree forms with hand-made textures leaves, blossoms, or fungi.  Her work brings attention to the call of the earth to protect our natural environments.

Todd Miguel a Baltimore native is a long-time resident of New York City, and Brooklyn.  His paintings have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions and his paintings are held in several private collections in the U.S., Canada and Europe, including the estate of Miles Davis.   Miguel and Miles Davis had a personal relationship inspiring each other.  The large scale paintings of Miguel are large scale abstractions of nature.  He works with automatism and letting the chemical reactions of paint create luscious surfaces.  His paintings examine the forces of nature in the world around us and in the mind of a painter.

Sophie Sejourne a native of Southern France residing in Brooklyn has exhibited internationally.  Her works on paper featured at Clover’s Fine Art are abstractions of natural Phenomenon.  Working with water color, chalk, and mixed media the touch of the artist is evident.  Having grown up on a small island in the south of France the sea is a continual source of inspiration for her abstract paintings.

Win Zibeon paintings are part of numerous private and public collections.  The Stream Series is a collection of wooden sculptures painted to resemble the forces of rushing water in a stream bed.  The Stream Series reflects a cry out about the planet’s water resources.  The liveliness of rushing water is a captured moment held within the painted relief sculpture.  Zibeon has participated in exhibitions at Van Brunt Gallery, Denise Bibro, Rockland Center for the Arts, The Hudson River Museum, and many other places throughout his 25 year career.
