DESCRIPTION

The gallery offers fine art from established local and international artists but also is a place that supports and encourages artistic talent development. Some newcomers to the arts will always have a chance to display some of their work.

New forms of art will also be featured and hopefully trigger discussion about the arts as we know it and the arts future direction. One such artist, Paul Higham, who was included in the first show, And All That Jazz, comes to California from New Orleans He relocated here temporarily at the Headlands Art Center, on a scholarship supported by the Artists Alliance and funded by the Irvine Foundation that enables a small group of artists selected out of a much larger group, who were wiped out in hurricane Katrina, to continue their work. He does what he calls translation modeling, a method he developed for creating sculpture and wall art from the GPS waves, or the Dow Jones, or any immediate on-going data flow that can be followed on a computer. This data is converted into sculpture or images on paper or moving images on a screen that are virtually alive. Paul’s view is that conceptual art captured by the still camera invented in the 1880’s is dead and this literally, is the wave of the future. Paul teaches about the history of art and it’s future as a university professor. Trained at one of the finest schools in the world, the Goldsmith’s, in London, Paul offers us a glimpse into the future, as he gives us a picture of our world outside of our vision in which we live everyday. He makes the invisible, visible and interprets it into art.
