There are two different galleries, but the one that really caught my attention was gallery 1, which was called "Reciprocal". Reciprocal is a common term in mathematics which means relationship between two elements which creates unity as a whole. In the gallery there shows two different artists, an art partnership between Susie Rosmarin and Hana Hillerova. Rosmarin creates linear line paintings on canvas with an emphasis in precision, however her pieces appear to move due to the color, mathematical study and placement. The paintings almost look as though they were created on a computer, a three-demential vortex of color, geometric form and space.

This picture can't even describe the feelings it gives without it being right in front of you. Even though it had the least amount of color and design, I could not keep my eyes off this piece. The painting seemed to move like water as i came closer and moved away from it. The emotion it gave me was indescribable. It was as if my brain had left me and I was floating in oblivion.

Not only did Rosmarin's Paintings blow my mind, but so did Hana Hillerova's massive sculptors. Its weird, because the sculptures are big, yet by the way they were put together they seem small to me. Its a perfect balance between complexity, harmony and the material this sculptor was made from. The skeleton of the sculptor gives a pleasing feel, a flowing movement that keeps the eyes constantly exploring. when given light, the sculptor really comes to life, its almost like a laser show going in all different directions. The multiple amount of reflections gives a kaleidoscope sense of feel. Its mind boggling.
At first I wasn't very thrilled with this style of painting, I actually thought it was quite dull, it wasn't until I saw the paintings right in front of me that they blew me away. The perfection and patience that radiated off of these paintings is so unique, I couldn't imagine them any other way.
