On Saturday, November 19th Michael J Wolf Fine Arts will be hosting talented local artist, Pete Tillack.
Mr. Tillack was drawn on an adventurous seven-year trek, which took him around the world and he was led by his desire for the waves and discovering diverse cultures. Tillack encountered countless societies and lifestyles that lent a hand in helping him become more aware of his own self explorations, direction and personal growth. Tillack’s work is heavily influenced by his emotions and experiences from traveling and is infused with the feelings of serenity through one’s environment.
A self taught artist, Tillack pursued many independent studies in such places as Italy, France, Central America, South America and South Africa as well as participating with other artists to create many high profile public pieces. Pete has filled many respected roles such as coordinator/ moderator for the San Diego Art Institutes program “The Gathering” and was selected to serve on the Arts Master Plan Citizen’s Advisory Committee for his city. Pete’s technical analysis of contrast and his regular use of monotone colors are used to dramatize the silhouettes and reflections shaped by a sunrise or sunset. This gives his wonderful creations a depth that draws the viewer into each piece, and lures them into an experience, transcending them to a peaceful disposition; “their personal journey.”
“As I grow with my work, my focus and purpose becomes more defined, adding a greater compassion and drive to not only my art, buy my life. My subject matter focuses on the journey of our lives, and the environment that constantly affects our daily decisions and directions. I enjoy placing juxtapose subject matter to symbolize my statements and represent the importance in life. I hope you not only enjoy the artistic beauty of the piece, are drawn into its hidden details, but ultimately understand the statement that I am trying to convey, understand that there are many crossroads in life and we can always us the maps that those before us have written. Nothing is as healthy or can replace a deep breath of fresh air – can clear the head and open the heart …….”
From 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm Michael J Wolf Fine Arts will have a Gallery Showcase with Pete’s beautiful original art, as well as live music by Julio de la Huerta and a nice selection of wines to share. This promises to be a great event .
