Jeff Malderez

Jeff is a British/French artist residing in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts.

Much of his visionary artwork is co-created with AI together with his connection to and inspiration from Spirit. One glance at any of his pieces transports the viewer into a myriad of worlds that encompass the various emotional, mental and spiritual states of human experience and existence. This affords them the opportunity to look deeper into their own inner world and enables them to identify with a wide range of human emotions, from pain to unconditional love.

Through this medium, the artist brings the viewer on a journey of personal exploration and healing. The many variant colors, textures, and hues make the journey palpable to those willing to look more deeply into themselves and the world around them as being One.

Shane Ott

Shane Ott's canvases are a mesmerizing journey into the dark depths of the human psyche. Hailing from Pittsfield, MA, Ott fearlessly delves into the complexities of the human experience, laying bare the raw and honest emotions that lie within all of us. With his chosen medium of painter, Ott captures the essence of freedom, both in its elusive nature and its ultimate liberation of the soul. His bold and audacious strokes embody the rebellious spirit of the artistic mind, inviting viewers to explore their own innermost feelings. Ott's work speaks to the relentless search for authenticity and the unapologetic quest for truth, inviting us to embrace the darkness and discover the light within.
