Metamorphosis is  a  new series inspired by the idea of The Element of  Styles. Some  works are minimal and other times more intense through the use of bold colors.  Each symbolism of color and shape is  interpreted differently which allows us to use our own imagination.  The works are surrounded by a  great variety of movement of expression and liberty. 

Alcinda Saphira

Alcinda Saphira 
 ( Painter,Sculptor and Jewelry Designer ) is from Brazil and has been living and maintaining her studio in Hastings on Hudson, New York. Her formal art education began at the Escola De Belas Artes Federal Da Bahia in Salvador, Bahia (School of Fine Arts at Bahia Federal University). After leaving her job as a television and radio producer at TV EDUCATIVA Salvador/Ba and transferring to TV CULTURA, the public broadcasting television service in her home region Belém/Pa  she sought out the traditional potteries in that part of the Amazon. For many years she traveled from one small town to another, studying ancient techniques while sharing back lessons learned at the academy. This became a crucial period in developing the visceral and political commitment to the survival of the Amazon that largely defined the shapes, colors, texture and themes of her work.
Today her work is more global and her techniques are unique.  Her works are enriched by transparencies and symbolic details, resulting in multiple colors and textures.
Saphira was awarded with the first place prize atUBENY International Competition, selected bytheGuggenheim Museum critics.
Currently, Saphira has been offering art classes in her studio in Hastings on Hudson and working as a free lance curator and project coordinator for The Brazilian Endowment for the Arts located in Manhattan, NY . In addition Saphira has been working as an independent curator promoting art events at different locations, such as: The United Nations, galleries in Chelsea NYC, and the Brazilian Art Expo in Massachusetts-Brazil.

In the past has free lanced with Wingspan Art Program, an after school program for kids.  Saphira has also done different workshops in places such as Central Park,  Pier 17, Ardsley Country Club,Aquafest-friends of Old Croton Aqueduct and more.

In 2009 she was selected as one of the three artists to contribute to the ongoing effort to beautify Downtown Yorkers, New York. She received a commission to create a mural for a building in Downtown Yorkers (the dimensions were dictated by the size of the building façade in downtown Yorkers 21x12’feet). The painting is part of the main street project sponsored by Yonrkers Downtown Water front Business improvement District in partnership with Raising Development.

Back in March, I was in the room as President Obama spoke to a group of young Americans of different political persuasions in Massachusetts. He spoke candidly and openly about the importance of compromise in our democracy — even from people who care passionately about their position.
Take a look:
President Obama speaks with young Americans. Watch the video
One quote stuck with me: “the nature of our democracy and the nature of our politics is to marry principle to a political process that means you don't get 100% of what you want.”
This is a President who believes searching for common ground is the right way to approach solving our problems. And in fact, in the divided government our country has chosen, it’s the only way we can.
Unfortunately, that view isn’t shared by everyone in Washington, DC. And you can see that right now as the President is trying to bring people together to tackle our debt and get our fiscal house in order.
This is a difficult process, and it means Republicans and Democrats need to step outside their political comfort zone and find some common ground. The President is willing to make tough cuts with real impacts, not easy decisions.
But most Congressional Republicans have dug in and demanded that the sacrifice fall only on the middle class, seniors and struggling Americans.
The President tried to make it easy for them by suggesting closing some of the most egregious loopholes for the very wealthiest Americans and special interests — so that hedge fund managers don’t pay lower taxes than firefighters and teachers, corporate jet owners don’t pay lower taxes than commercial airlines, and oil companies don’t get tax cuts at a time they are making record profits.
Congressional Republicans have not yet given an inch even though the American people, regardless of which political party they belong to, overwhelmingly approve of this common sense, balanced approach.
Our nation is climbing out of the worst recession since the Great Depression, and one of the most important things we can do to help the economy is to get our fiscal house in order and reduce our Nation’s deficit. We can’t let this moment pass us by.
Compromise isn’t a dirty word — in fact, it’s the only way our democracy can get big things done.
David Plouffe
Senior Advisor to the President
P.S. In his Weekly Address, the President calls on both parties to work together to find a balanced approach to solving our nation’s deficit problem.Watch the video.
