BlacKKat Productions: An Opening Reception

BlacKKat Productions is a collection of recent art from surging Staten Island Artist Kerri Kutza. Kerri explores the dichotomy of light and dark and what is beautiful or disturbing, expressing the universal ability we share to find light or hope in darkness and doubt.

 

"Art is an outlet for me something akin to meditating or a runner's high which is my second passion. If I feel angry or sad or joyful I can express that in my work. I have labeled this collection "BlackKat Productions" because I kid you not... a black cat crosses my path almost daily! I have come to embrace this fact and have decided to view this as a sign of good luck...Also the double K's are my initials."

Monk with a Camera

Nicholas Vreeland walked away from a worldly life of privilege to become a Tibetan Buddhist monk. Grandson of legendary Vogue editor, Diana Vreeland, and trained by Irving Penn to become a photographer, Nicholas' life changed drastically upon meeting a Tibetan master, one of the teachers of the Dalai Lama. Soon thereafter, he gave up his glamorous life to live in a monastery in India, where he studied Buddhism for fourteen years. In an ironic twist of fate, Nicholas went back to photography to help his fellow monks rebuild their monastery. Recently, the Dalai Lama appointed Nicholas as Abbot of the monastery, making him the first Westerner in Tibetan Buddhist history, to attain such a highly regarded position.
