The ever changing world is even more intriguing when viewed through the creative channels of your mind. Shifing Worlds combines the surreal and abstract imagery of artist Angelo Joseph, best known as AJ, set alongside the introspective and dreamlike images from Theresa “Terri” Berg. Together these works create a fantastic environment to be interpreted through your own experiences, memories and influences. Create a new memory by joining AJ for his live painting demonstration using a rotating canvas during the Opening Reception.
Angelo Joseph is a multi-disciplinary artist and art instructor from the Chicago area. He began his “abstract circles” series in 2010 and will be showing some of the latest and greatest works. His process involves rotating the canvas as he paints, in which layers of circles and patterns create a dynamic and textured atmosphere.
AJ received his BFA in Graphic Design in Quincy, IL as well as an MA in painting in Columbia, MO. He has won several competition awards for his mural and public art ideas. Now a new resident artist of Dubuque, AJ moved here in September 2015 and created a large colorful mural at the Inspire Café in the Millwork district.
Theresa Berg is an artist with a BFA from the University of Missouri, St. Louis, and MA in Fine Arts/Painting from the University of Missouri, Columbia, specializing in oil paintings, as well as portraits, landscapes, and drawings.
Theresa found a love for painting in 2010 and has since participated in over twenty gallery exhibitions regionally throughout her undergraduate and graduate career. Her earlier work consisted of large contemporary-narrative paintings focused on the depth of space and psychology of the figure. The work evolved with experimentation in the form of vivid colors/textures to produce a series of landscape paintings. The paintings represent the natural forms of the driftless area and reflect tones of a “Psychedelic Regionalism”.
