I envision my art as promoting the positive essence of the human experience to create harmony in the community. I want my pieces to wake up the audience from idling in the impermanence of the floating world and make them become aware of living fully in the present moment. To advance them to a level of consciousness embodied in the following declarations: Live the life. Now is the time. Focus and concentrate.

Bedel Tiscareno

In the human figure, I find a framework of infinite possibilities for content and narrative that is viscerally connected to each of us. The well-established tradition of figurative sculpture in almost all ethnic cultures throughout the world immediately connects me to a dialogue that demands contribution and adamantly opposes resolution. At this stage, I create my work on a small scale. Although I have goals of creating larger work, the current scale enables me to express ideas with relative speed and efficiency. My solitary free-standing figures are as much maquettes for larger, as yet to be realized works as they are finished pieces.
Often times, the piece developed as a lone sculpture will find its way into a composition consisting of multiple figures.

Nola Romano

The paintings of Nola Romano depict a personal iconography of self portrait- based narratives of multiple identities. Dual Jekyl and Hyde personas reside in layered panoramic landscapes. Ms. Romano’s work takes inspiration from a myriad of sources ranging from British children’s book illustration, to Renaissance painting, and natural history illustrations. The female characters, animal companions, and their narratives collide in a maze of mishaps in the cycle of life.
