“John and Debby have been making, designing and handcrafting Jewelry, Art & Music full time since 1980,” according to the website sozra.com.
“They met at Towson State University in the Art department. John’s concentration was in photography and Debby’s was in Fabric Design and Weaving.
“Shortly after they were married, they decided to combine their talents to create a jewelry business. John’s music and art is a never-ending creative endeavor. His 5th CD Multiverse Vortex will be coming out in the fall of 2013. The music is an extension of the Multiverse Vortex 2D Art series.”
“John Sosnowsky is a graduate of Towson State University and a native Marylander current residing in Frederick County. With his wife Debby he has been teaching, demonstrating and creating jewelry, Art and Music full time for over 30 years under the name Sozra Studio.
“He has been the onsite juror of the Pittsburgh Three River Arts Festival, served on the Maryland Renaissance Arts and Craft Board and the Artist Market Chair of the Frederick Festival of the Arts. John is a contemporary Artist. His work is sold through various juried shows, galleries and on the web at www.sozra.com”
John Sosnowsky elaborated upon his concept of “Geometric Surrealism,” in his artist statement:
“Beauty and harmony in nature are defined by their simplicity and apparently effortless existence. Art, regardless of tradition, time, historical relevance or medium has attempted to recreate and mimic nature since the first intentional lines were drawn in the soil beneath primitive feet.
“As my experiences through travel, study, and technology would have it, the medium and creative direction my art has taken spans continents, religions, time and a multitude of resources. In an attempt to recreate the beauty and harmony I have emanating in my being, my experiences and imagination have converged with simple geometry, high technology and ancient symbolism to bring an element of timelessness and universality to the piece before you.
“These pieces are meant to evoke comfort and curiosity, calm through chaos, and the untraditional through convention. Enjoy the juxtaposition of each piece as simplicity draws you into complexity.
“All human construct evolves from basic laws of existence. In the case of visual arts, we remember basic geometry. Nothing starts without a point. Two points may connect a rigid line. Yet a series of points can give semblance to a wave or abstraction of sorts. Regardless of time, space, culture or belief these are the rules we abide by in our visual creations of ‘art.’ With this collection I hope to bring you on a positive, visual journey that spans all that is known while remaining simple.
“With a Bachelor’s Degree in Art from Towson University, I have been working for over 30 years, with my wife Debby, creating and selling art at juried shows and galleries.”
