As an artist I was influenced by writers, poets, the beauty of
the landscape, the deep color of the ocean and natural surroundings.
In the early years of my artistic career, I worked in graphic art, where
I developed my own style and ways of expression. For me this was
the time for experimentation with different mediums: woodcut, lithography,
linoleum, colograph, monotype, etching an many others. Even my
past art reflects the development of my work today.

Schulze I am drawn to the way you and I make conclusions. I like to draw conclusions about the way we perceive what is wild or seemingly ordinary. Representations are a way to make evident the spaces and gestures we find indicative of our experiences in the world. I re-present my experiences as a form of acknowledgement to the contact I have had with what is most terrifying and beautiful.
Tore Terrasi, from Easton, MA., currently residing in Providence, RI and received a Masters of Fine Arts in Visual Design from Umass Dartmouth. The ambition of the artist is to try and create new ways of reading or interacting with typography. Most often these experiments lead to kinetic or animated pieces. The work explores various branches and synthesis of digital arts, graphic design and creative writing. By incorporating graphic, animated, and interactive elements the process of reading will become more exciting, engaging, and more fully understood. With static forms of text, the audience's perception of importance weakens as the immediate urgency to understand a text diminishes. I hope to not only reverse this trend, but create more aesthetically pleasing literature. To contact artist email firstname.lastname@example.org
