by Daric Gill

Pizzuti Collection 2If you are familiar with the Pizzuti Collection in any way, you’ll know that they are a powerhouse in the world of contemporary art collections. Situated in the Short North Arts District next to the Goodale Park, the Pizzuti Collection museum houses a rotating collection of privately owned works of art from around the globe. This year they’ve partnered up  with the great people at Equitas Health for the biennial Art For Life benefit. Together they will present the 2016 Art for Life event and fund ventures that will support both AIDS research and youth arts education. I’ve taken part in this cause in the past, but I’m especially excited for this newly struck partnership and the added benefits it provides.

VIDEO: Constructing An “Absolute: Moment” In Latest Painting

The Painting, Process, & Background to “Absolute: Moment”

Snow gloves, tank tops, and an umbrella?  Where I live, that can only mean one thing: the seasons are changing. Spring is fast approaching. The 30 degree shifts and seasonal mixes each day makes getting dressed seem more like a daily challenge to design a functional super hero costume. A balancing side effect of this spectacular shift in weather is the equally as impressive change in environment.

Crocuses wake up through icy snow crystals. The deciduous trees, with their angrily wild stick-bones, soften due to crimson red buds and fluorescent green leaflets. There’s a change that happens; a release of life back into the world as if a clinched fist has loosened, allowing the life-blood to flow again. As if constantly looking at one’s watch while waiting on company, I actively search for that moment when I can find spring in the world. My latest painting, “Absolute: Moment” searches for that transitional happening, where the old is reborn into something new.

This piece has been selected for this year’s Art for Life benefit. Recently this pieces has been dropped off at the prestigious Pizzuti Collection Museum and may travel to several other locations before landing at the Columbus Museum Of Art where it will be auctioned off in support of two worthy causes. Read on to find out more about this piece.
