Eugene Andolsek, Untitled #14A
Andolsek is one of the artists featured in The Intuit Show at SOFA. He worked at his kitchen table with a compass, straight edge, graph paper, and an eyedropper to create amazing intricate works of art, yet did not even consider himself an artist. Once completed, his work was put away in a closet or trunk, only displayed to the public eye in his later years when a caregiver at a retirement home discovered his talent and brought it to the attention of the director of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.

Julius Weiland , Silver Dragon, 2011
silvered borosilicate glass 43.25 x 23.75 x 2.75″

Weiland is a glass artist represented by Litvak Gallery. His signature work is fusing borosilicate glass tubes into flowing, glistening sculptures. In the fusing process, the glass must melt to enough of a liquid state to bond together, yet not be liquid enough to melt into a puddle. Precision fusing is an essential and delicate process.

Louis Mueller, Four Corners of Green, 2007
41″ X 3″ X 3″ constructed bronze oil paint
There is something about Mueller’s strong forms that I find attractive. His use of gallery wall corners makes you look twice. This type of work is just the tip of the Mueller iceberg, there is a massive amount more if you delve a bit deeper. His range is impressive, with a career spanning nearly four decades, and work that includes contemporary studio jewelry, sculpture, installation, furniture design and drawings. Here are a couple of gallery links to his work: carriehaddadgallery.com, galleryloupe.com
