Washington Area Art Gallery Announces Newest Painting from Magical Realist, Rob Gonsalves


North Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) September 08, 2014

Washington D.C. Fine Art Gallery, Huckleberry Fine Art Gallery, is pleased to announce the latest work from world-renowned magic realism painter, Rob Gonsalves. Like many of Gonsalves paintings, Beyond the Reef, seamlessly morphs reality and an imagined world to create a beautiful work of art.

Rob Gonsalves has been recognized as the most famous living surrealist painter in North America. His latest work, Beyond the Reef, injects a sense of magic into an otherwise relaxed beach scene. Gonsalves explained his inspiration for the work, Part of our Caribbean holiday this March involved snorkeling excursions to the coral reef. For me, the most compelling part was launching myself out over the area where the shallows dropped off dramatically. I found myself imagining what kind of landscape might exist far below my range of vision.

In the painting, Rob combined the sensation of flying he felt snorkeling with an imagined underwater world. On the right side of the painting, a male and female can be seen snorkeling underwater from below. The female can be seen swimming near the surface while the male is diving a bit deeper into the water. As the viewer scans the painting from the right the scene changes dramatically. The viewpoint shifts suddenly and the observer is looking down at a beach presumably the same beach where the two on the right are snorkeling.

There is no other artist out there that does what Rob Gonsalves does, says Robs Publisher and Owner of Huckleberry Fine Art, Boots Harris. It is truly a pleasure to work with Gonsalves and watch him bring his imagination to life. Rob Gonsalves started working and printing with Huckleberry Fine Art over 20 years ago. Gonsalves has released over 70 of his Magically Realistic paintings and sold 33,000 prints to numerous individuals around the world, embassies, corporations and a United States Senator.

Beyond the Reef, limited edition, signed and other numbered prints are also available at Huckleberry Fine Art. The painting is available on paper, canvas, and sublimated metal in a wide range of sizes and prices.

Global Talc and Pyrophyllite Market Exhibits Slow Demand Growth, Says Merchant Research & Consulting in Its In-demand Study


London, UK (PRWEB) November 05, 2014

In 2013, the world output of talc and pyrophyllite reached the 7.4 million tonnes mark. If compared with 2012, the total production volume fell by 0.4%. Most talc and pyrophyllite reserves are concentrated in Brazil.

Large volumes of talc are consumed by the ceramics, paper, plastics and paint industries, while pyrophyllite is utilized mainly in the production of electric insulators, refractories, ceramic products and in glass.

China ranked the 1st country in the world in terms of pyrophyllite and talc output volume in 2013; the countrys market share totaled almost 30% in that year. India and Brazil were the worlds second and third largest manufacturers, respectively.

The demand for pyrophyllite and talc is higher across the emerging countries rather than in the developed ones. The prices are unlikely to post a significant increase in the next years, as the global resources are estimated to be enough to satisfy the slowly growing demand for talc and pyrophyllite.
