Gail Potocki

Q: Tell me something about your history in the creative arts. Did you have a formal school education or are you self taught?

A: I was a late bloomer when it came to becoming an artist since I didn’t paint my first painting until I was almost 40 years old! I grew up an “only child” so I spent much of my childhood alone. more » “Gail Potocki”

The Sinking World of Andreas Franke

The SS Stavronikita lies at the bottom of the ocean at 13.8 N, 59.38 W, right off the Caribbean island of Barbados. It is the spot Andreas Franke has discovered and chosen to stage a game full of overflowing decadence and exuberance.
