Dacia Gallery proudly present’s “A Space Within,” Rob Zeller’s new series of figurative paintings that capture the contemplative perhaps spiritual mind states of his subjects. Rob has overlaid portions of the figures and landscapes with the swirling mandalas. Zeller reflects, “The women in these paintings are not made to entice you, they are having their own experience with their surroundings, while experiencing themselves and the universe beyond. We share these moments with them through their outside appearance.” The show runs through March 20, 2015. 

Rob Zeller has become a staple among the NY-based figurative representational community and beyond. In 2007, Zeller won a huge grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and used it to open an art school. The Teaching Studios of Art is located in Oyster Bay on the North Shore of Long island. In addition to its regular classes in portrait and figure drawing, the school hosts workshops given by some of the most renowned figurative artists.
