Artist Robert Federico

"Spiritual Energy"

Gallery 25N is pleased to announce it’s first exhibit of photography and video. Robert Federico, sculptor, photographer and video artist, creates a multimedia installation revealing the spiritual energy in water.  The artist’s goal is to share the love he feels for the ever-changing beauty of water. He uses cameras to capture a fleeting glimpse of the majestic energy that exists in water as revealed by light. He allows us to experience this energy that is meditative and connects us to a cosmic spirit.  He finds this magnificent energy and spirit not in the vast expanses of nature or the observation of the cosmos but in the observation of a small slice of nature. If you take a moment at the exhibition and allow his images and sounds to penetrate, you will find that through his artistry he brings this serenity and spiritual energy to us.

"I feel a deep spiritual connection to the water and it has become almost God like to me. I am witness to an infinite universe of beautiful images that generate a feeling of love and awe at the same time."

The exhibition will be an installation of photographs, projected video and flat screen monitors with sound to recreate the experience of seeing water in a whole new light. While the artist makes use of high tech, his goal is to make it as discreet as possible.

"The technology allows us to see and hear in ways not possible before, while becoming less obtrusive to the experience"

Robert Federico brings us soul-searching beauty from nature through his videos and unique photography. His photography can easily stand alone, but Federico adds more interest and beauty to his photography with his personally created metal frames. The frames relate to his work in metal sculpture.  He creates original metal frames for his photos.  His hand made frames are an iatrical part his photography as he creates rhythmic textures and movements that extend the image out beyond the image area.

It will be possible to view Mr. Federico’s exhibit at Gallery 25N during Peekskill’s monthly First Fridays celebration on Friday evening, May 6, 2006 from 5:00 – 9:00PM.
