Robin Tedesco is an artist and educator, living and working in Philadelphia. His fine arts degrees are from the Moore College of Art (BFA), the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the University of Delaware (MFA). His abstract oil paintings using multiple layers of rich textures and colors on wood panels, reflect his experiences of living in Italy, New York and Philadelphia.
Tedesco describes himself as both an archaeologist and a detective. She enjoys digging, discovering, restoring and seeking what light and dark reveal and transform. The wood panels serve as engraving plates on which the color is embossed and printed. A combination of etching, drawing and painting intertwined to form a cohesive image, revealing the inner light and structure present in the multiple layers of pigment and texture. Tedesco is committed to transmitting the richness and depth of its experiences and observations in this work.
His work has been exhibited internationally and is part of public and private collections.

âWhen I paint, I work like an archaeologist: excavating, scratching, discovering and restoring. Forms and figuration appear and disappear as layers reveal and transform the hidden light. -Robin Tedesco-
Bruce Metcalf / “Ornamental Conditions”

âThis series, ‘Conditions of Ornament’, is brand new. My intention is to revive these antique decorative patterns by making them contemporary. I started Xeroxing, tracing and cutting out some of the most spectacular designs I could find, with the aim of combining them in some way or another. It soon became clear that layering was the most effective strategy. I could do a new mix of unrelated models and force comparisons that were never part of the original uses. It is the collision of very different contexts that makes this work interesting. -Bruce Metcalf-

Karin Birch has used hand embroidery and hand-sewn beadwork combined with acrylic paint as a medium for artistic creation for over twenty years. The act of hand-sewing thread and beads is a slow, repetitive process that provides space for uninterrupted reflection. The act of painting is spontaneous, in the moment, physical movement. The combination of these two opposing states gives shape to an endless exploration of the mystery of being. âI work intuitively, exploring personal experiences, energy, movement, nature and the occasional external interruptions of politics. I use this medium of minutiae as a practice to connect with immensity.
