Tina Cobelle-Sturges’ “RADical Hope” radiates positive energy, vitality, and spirit. Waves of color emerge from the very center, or core of the painting, flowing outwards through arrangements of patterns.
“RADical Hope” is about the internal world. It most certainly gives out hope and longing for a better world and better future with happiness all around. The play of color with bright bands, or ribbons intersecting with more subdued greys and off-whites is truly captivating. One might also notice a dancing or moving figure amidst this ocean of color, or maybe it is not a dancer but the music itself. Tina’s vibrancy of energy, her musical rhythms and movement have a lot of symbolism - it signifies joy of life, hope and internal peace.
Aristotle’s famous phrase “The aim of art is not to represent the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance” seems to describe Tina’s art quite accurately. Paintings in her abstract series focus on internal world of feelings, emotions, sensations.
"RADical Hope" is a contribution by Tina to the RADical Hope Foundation.
Tina practices multifaceted art in figurative and abstract modes. Her discipline encompasses enchanting New York scenes, poetic landscapes, and pure abstractions.
