Robert Huff uses an alternate photographic printing process:
images are rendered on photosensitized surfaces such as wood, glass, stone and other found materials. The effect is impressive, giving the pieces a familiarity that enhances the subjects. He entitles this body of work “Roadside Retrofit”. The underlying theme of his work is a result of traveling on his bicycle. His images are a unique combination of architecture and landscapes.

   

George Gostovich works with terra cotta clay to form his sculptures. Because the pieces are made of clay, time was a factor in their creation. They had to be done quickly before the clay dried out. Though most of the work was done directly from live models, his work evolved from a standard representation of the model.

As he puts it, “memories or imagination guided me in the final stages of a piece.”
