Light, one of the fundamentals of both the arts and sciences, continues to captivate and entertain in conceptual and empirical inquiry. Perhaps the reason so is that the answers to even some very basic scientific questions about it continue to elude. And, many scientific explanations tend to fall short when applied to broader study and observation. As the title suggests, artists whose works are included in […]

Rocha Art’s first annual Wander & Wayfare, comprised of a mural festival and […]

Traditionally, the still life artwork was considered the lowest in the hierarchy of visual arts subject matter. Paintings depicting religious and historical events, portraiture, genre, and even landscape painting were held in higher academic regard.
