Still Life and From Life showcasing the artists Francesca Di Lorenzo and Deena Hunkler-Sanks compares and contrasts their paintings and sculptures which express the many aspects of life. Deena’s traditional oil paintings which include Trompe L’oeil reflect “still life” and Francesca’s traditional sculptures are reflective of her interpretations “from life”.
Deena Hunkler-Sanks – Deena collects memories and tells stories weaving together bits and pieces of peoples’ lives to present a rendition of their story captured in her paintings. Old photographs, keepsakes, and memorabilia are included in her still life scenes. A glance shows the beauty of a time past… a closer look tells the story.
Francesca Di Lorenzo – Francesca’s sculptures are from life using live models to capture the nuances of the human figure in the traditional sculptural style dating back to the Greeks. Her sculptures celebrate the beauty and differences of life as depicted in her interpretation of the human form. This sculpting process of interpreting life using clay gives her deep satisfaction and joy during this unique process which results in a terra cotta or bronze piece of sculpture.
