About the Juror Sorin Bica:
Sorin Bica is a contemporary artist based in the Boston area, frequently sought for his unique large-scale abstract and figurative paintings. The use of intense color and expressive figures can be seen through-out his work. Sorin was born in Bucharest, Romania where he studied at Scoala Populara de Arta. He began his career drawing political cartoons in his native country. He moved to the USA in 1988 where he studied art at Worcester State University. He continued to combine the cartoonish drawings with his painting, subsequently resulting in his present style. Sorin's work can be found in many public, private and corporate collections both in the United States and abroad. He is a resident artist at SOWA artist Studios in Boston and The Mill Contemporary Art in Framingham, MA. Sorin is also the Curator and Owner at Project B Gallery in Framingham, MA. Sorin is represented by Barba Contemporary Art Gallery, Palm Springs CA, Fountain Street Fine Arts, Boston MA, AZ Fine Art, Chestnut Hill MA, Paula Esty Gallery in Newburyport MA and Project B Gallery in Framingham MA.

Medium: Acrylic on Cradle Board

What inspired you to make this work?: Daffodils are hardy winter survivors and one of the first flowers to send their shoots toward the sun in March. They can symbolize a sense of awareness to new life and resilience. The first sighting of their cheery yellow trumpets gives me joy and hope that everything will be alright as the earth comes back to life. The other objects in the still life echo the daffodils’ energy and shapes of the stems and flowers, in a graphic play of pattern and light.

Alvin Winant
$2,800.00


Dimensions: 24 x 28 x 1.5
Medium: oil on canvas
Year created: 2020
What inspired you to make this work?: There is a letter noted by Bishop Eusebius (Ecclesiastical History) circa 340 AD on the death of St. Polycarp circa 150 AD. St Polycarp was burned at the stake for refsuing to renounce his faith in Christ. When his body refused to burn, he was thrust through by a sword. Tradition holds that a dove was seen arising from the smoke. I had read this account many years ago and recalled the scene when I was considering a name for this picture. Polycarp renounced his life in favor of his eternal values. He faced extreme suffering and even death rather than betray himself and his God.
