Robert Masla coined the term Spiritrealism in the 1970s to describe as he puts it: how the transcendental can manifest right before us — in the realm of the so-called mundane. His art expresses the spiritual reality within the material elements of everyday life. From his western Massachusetts landscapes to his trompe-l’oeil still lifes to his abstract collages, Masla’s work is unique and teeming with energy. This new exhibit of work encompasses all of Masla’s explorations and brings fresh perspective of beauty to the viewer.
“My definition of Spiritrealism has evolved as I have over the years, from a limited vision to one that is more universal, I realize now, that I know much less than I thought I did. What I’ve come to understand as Spiritrealism is the process of experiencing my place in the universe as a part of creation and that I as an artist and a human being have the opportunity to participate in the creation. I like to think of each work of art, whether representational or non-objective, as the creation of an energy field that affects the environment and people around it. I want that to be a positive, healing energy, hopefully connecting me and the viewer to the place where we are that energy and experience a unity of being.” -Robert Masala
