“I’m currently alive on a alternation that I accept dubbed ‘A Ghost In A Shell’, and this was the aboriginal allotment that I made,” Sliwoski said of his entry. “This concluded up as a absolute blessed mistake. It didn’t about-face out the way that I envisioned, but it concluded up growing on me and appropriately collection the blow of the series.”
Art is not new to Sliwoski.
“I’ve been artistic all my life. But it wasn’t until I went to Worcester Accompaniment University to abstraction beheld art that I began to booty it added seriously, because I knew this is article that I appetite to do for the blow of my life,” he said.

In college, his absorption was sculpture. In his chief year, “suddenly I started painting again. I anticipate that’s what helped affect me to activate abacus alloyed media to my 2D works like ‘Ghost In A Shell I.’ My go-to abstracts are consistently acrylic acrylic and charcoal,” Sliwoski said.
His art is not a active for him.
“I accomplish art for myself and never had any ambition to advertise it. But I accept awash my assignment and accept done commissions for some amazing people,” he said.
He does allotment his work. “I’m consistently announcement my assignment circadian on Instagram (@galacticloopline). I’m additionally consistently appointment to bounded shows such as ArtsWorcester.”
He said he has had acceptable feedback.
“So abounding abundant things accept been accident recently, and I anticipate that’s because I am accomplishing article right. Aloof Last April I had my aboriginal exhibition (The Marvelous Dissection Of [hu]Man) alongside my acceptable acquaintance Kristine MacBrian at The Sprinkler Factory in Worcester, breadth I accustomed a amazing bulk of absolute support.
“Everyone that I batten to during the aperture accession anon opened up and talked about their own struggles with brainy illness. I absolutely enjoyed back they would accompany me to the painting that they affiliated with the most. Things like this are what drive me to abide authoritative art. I accept that art can allege added audibly than words,” Sliwoski said.
Asked about obstacles to continuing his art, Sliwoski said, “Definitely accepting to assignment abounding time. At assignment I’m consistently brainstorming, and I get balked that I can’t run off and alpha painting. Everything is about actuality in the appropriate moment.
“Even admitting I’m beat back I appear home, I force myself go into the flat to assignment on something. Even if it’s alone for a abbreviate bulk of time. I aloof consistently appetite to accumulate creating,” Sliwoski said.
Born and aloft in West Boylston, Sliwoski said, “I adulation the breadth so abundant that I absitively to break here.”
Carrie Crane, who has lived in Boylston back 1998, has three pieces in the exhibit, two abstruse assets that are “graphic (in the faculty of a blueprint or diagram) analyses of black ink broadcast in baptize and dried. Picture a big balloon of blush graphed,” she said.
Her third allotment is a limited-edition portfolio blue-blooded Accepted Approach on a Array of Concerns. “Each of the 10 pages in this portfolio is a graphically supported, acrid or amusing approach or estimation of the acceptation of an abstruse (in added words, meaningless) image,” Crane said.
“Each interpretation, in the anatomy of a cellophane overlay, references accepted issues like fracking, amplitude trash, insect analysis and more. All three of the pieces represent the accepted accountable of my work, which has to do with how the clear accent of ability and accuracy (the map, the chart, the diagram) carries abundant ascendancy but is calmly manipulated to advance the admirers in any adapted direction,” she said.
Crane has been entering the ArtsWorcester Biennial for 25 years or more, “ever back I started demography myself actively as an artist. I anticipate I skipped it one year and wasn’t called one added year, but contrarily I accept been there,” she said.
“The allure is in the added akin of analysis you accept to accomplish it through to get in to the Biennial. It is consistently a crapshoot. You never apperceive what the juror is activity to be attractive for. It makes it exciting,” she said.
“I accept been creating art back I was a child, but never advised it,” Crane said. “I accept an undergraduate bulk in cartography from UMass-Amherst, breadth I abstraction cartography (hence the maps, diagrams, charts).
“I didn’t absolutely alpha authoritative art actively until I was in my 30s. I abide to do it because it is what I am best at, and it entertains me a lot. Hopefully others as well,” she said.
“Right now, my account appear from accurate research: the tools/instruments, the process, the communication, the theories. I’m not absorbed in any specific breadth of science, necessarily. I am absorbed in the action of analysis and breadth it leads. Which I accept is appreciably agnate to what goes on in the artist’s studio,” Crane said.
Although she uses a array of mediums, “My fallback is consistently painting, acrylic painting. But I accomplish a lot of things that are three-dimensional, and for those, the abstracts can be annihilation — plexiglass, metal, accouterments — it aloof depends on what I am aggravating to make,” she said.
“I accede myself a able artisan and try to get 30 to 40 hours of flat time a week. But God forbid I should accept to alive off it,” she said. “My assignment is out of the mainstream, and while I appearance it nationally, it’s not anybody who would appetite it in their home. I accustomed my MFA from Lesley University in 2016, and back again accept done some art teaching and apprenticeship in accession to my flat time.”
She shares her art mostly through exhibits at bookish art galleries beyond the country. She has had assignment at the Fitchburg Art Museum, Worcester Accompaniment University and Fountain Street Fine Art in Framingham.
“I do use amusing media a little. I accept a activity activity on Instagram, breadth I column adapted photographs that accept article to do with the cardinal nine. That has been absolutely fun because it is almost quick assignment and experimental,” Crane said.
Commenting on feedback, Crane said, “I assumption for favorites, I accept a couple. I was commissioned to do a alternation of three paintings for the Mayo Clinic some years ago, and I accept three continued reproductions of paintings in the cat-and-mouse breadth at the Benedict Building at UMass Medical.
“Every now and again addition will acquaintance me or see me and acquaint me how accessible or auspicious it was to accept those paintings to attending at while they waited for the doctor to see them. That is about the best. Because what abroad can I do as an artisan if not accomplish addition feel bigger in some way?” she said.
“Also, I accept a acquaintance who happens to be a big fan and she already said, as she was disturbing for words to accurate her enthusiasm, that my assignment was an ‘invitation.’ I admired that a lot, too,” Crane said.
“I accept been acutely advantageous to accept had, not alone support, but a huge bulk of advice from my husband, and I accept consistently been able to allow to chase this path. So my better obstacle is myself and authoritative abiding I appearance up for the task, because if you aren’t there again you’ll absence the brood back he/she stops by,” Crane said.
