Providence, RI – Providence-based abstract impressionist artist, Dennis Coelho, has donated his “Ice Castles” oil painting to be auctioned off at the “Bidding for Good” auction, which benefits the Rhode Island’s AIDS Care Ocean State, an HIV/AIDS service agency.
“Ice Castles was part of a series depicting the complexities of human emotions and feelings,” Coelho said. “You may note the pointed Icicles that point upward and downward as the painting was designed to face either/or. The mind can be a serene cold and beautiful escape all at once, it can be filled with complex hurdles that can block passage to a place you may want to be going or it can be an inviting journey.
“Either way the human mind is a beautiful place where one can create his or her own world a world that can actually come to life just by imagining it to be, If one can believe it, visualize it then one can attract it’s presence and or realize it’s being, therefore even in and during the coldest moments beauty exists. The painting describes that beauty exists in everything, even things perceived as bad, there is no bad, all is good.”
The online auction for “Ice Castles,” which is 28” x 36” in size, closes at noon on October 15, then moves onto the floor for the live silent auction (which includes 40 other works of art) at the ArtBeat 2012 Live Auction Gala on October 19 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at the Providence Biltmore Hotel, 11 Dorrance Street, Providence. The event also includes cocktails, a live band and lite dinner fare. Ticket are $45 and available at aidscareos.org.
