Centered in the Heart : Spar Street and the Vitality of Being
With a list of collectors that includes His Royal Highness, The Sultan of Brunei, Sir Richard Branson, Ted Turner, Stanley Marcus, and Dr. Jane Goodall, Mario Andretti, Deepak Chopra, and Eckhart Tolle among others, it is obvious that Spar Street’s work has been chosen to inspire some of society’s most inspirational leaders. His background is untraditional for an artist, and includes extreme sports, such as skydiving and skiing. His thrill seeking and thirst for the ultimate feeling of life, was only satisfied when he decided to become a professional artist. Through his art, he is able to express his passion for exploration of the self, and the thrill of achieving and infusing his work with a higher level of consciousness surpasses any thrill accomplished through extreme sports
Spar Street’s work has been featured in museums and galleries nationally and internationally, including the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego; the Hansen Galleries in New York City; Gallery Rodeo in Beverly Hills, California; Gallery 1949 in Aspen Colorado, Gallery Biba in Palm Beach Florida, the Rendez-Vous Art Gallery in Vancouver, B. C., Art Link in Sydney, Australia; and Art Gallery Masajiro in Tokyo.
Centered in the Heart : Spar Street and the Vitality of Being will feature 27 paintings and sculptures that continue in Street’s exploration of cosmic connections. Each of Spar Street’s pieces is meant to serve as an exploration and celebration of the courage it takes to be our authentic self, to take our place in life, to surrender each day to our soul’s true calling, to trust, and live wide open. Spar Street’s work stands out from the work of other artists, his paintings are created utilizing hundreds of textured layers, applied one upon the other; each layer enhancing the one that came before, and setting the stage for the layers yet to come. Many of these layers are translucent, with ribbons of suspended color floating within the underpainting, and also in multiple overlays that create a delicate stained glass like surface. Due to the carefully applied layering process, Spar Street’s paintings have an extraordinary sculptural quality that changes and moves as light passes over their sensual contours.
