Gregory Manchess - Weightless, Solo Show at Arte Verissima Gallery

 This Saturday, January 24th, Gregory Manchess' solo show at Arte Verissima Gallery in Oakland, California is opening and will be on display until March 8th! The first of a series of many, "Weightless" is an exhibition in which Gregory is tapping into the viewers' memory by delving deep into the general elemental conditions we all experience everyday. Just as smell can instantly incite a memory, Gregory is playing with the viewer's visual and experiential memories by using the simple technique of familiarity.  The viewer is part of the product in this exhibition as the response to each painting becomes an integral part to the painting itself.

Super Bowl XLIX
 

Orlando Arocena

“The fun of the Super Bowl is the week leading up to it..."

-Joe Posnanski

 

Guy Stauber

"I obviously take a lot of pride in what I do on the football field , because that has the ability to influence a lot of people. That puts smiles on people's faces. That gives people a pep in their step on Monday morning when they go back to work."

-Drew Brees

 

CF Payne

" As long as they produce, their job is to play football."

-Weeb Ewbank

 

Chris Gall

"As a player, it says everything about you if you made the Hall of Fame. But, then again, boy... there's something about winning a Super Bowl."

-Terry Bradshaw

 

Gary Kelley

"I think I could have become an outstanding professional baseball player, but I don't think I could have reached the heights that I have in football - being one of the very top players in the game, being a world champion."

- Joe Namath "Broadway Joe"

 

Douglas Smith

"A lot of football success is in the mind. You must believe you are the best and then make sure you are."

- Bill Shankly

 

Rudy Gutierrez

"Vision gets the dreams started. Dreaming employs your God-given imagination to reinforce the vision. Both are part of something I believe is absolutely necessary to building the life of a champion, a winner, a person of high character who is consistently at the top of whatever game he or she is in."

-Emmitt Smith

 

Michal Lisowski

"Football is unconditional love. "

-Tom Brady
 

Goni Montes

"Winning as a team is better than anything. It's great to share success."

- Jim Harbaugh

 

Tim Bower

"My thing is tying to convince them they can win."

-Dick Butkus

 

Kent Barton

"I had sacrificed my entire life to play football."

-Brian Bosworth "The Boz"

 

John Mattos

"Football is not a contact sport; it's a collision sport. Dancing is a good example of a contact sport."

- Duffy Daughtery
 

Mark T Smith

"The game of life is a lot like football.You have to tackle your problems, block your fears, and score your points when you get the opportunity"

-Lewis Grizzard

 

Mark Summers

"Because, they're only thinking about one team when that game's over. Before the game, they're talking about two football teams. When the game's over, there's only one winner."

-Don Shula

 

James Bennett

"When you have confidence, you can have a lot of fun. And when you have fun, you can do amazing things."

- Joe Namath "Broadway Joe"

 

Ted Wright

"It feels really good. Nobody believed in us. Everytime you get a win when nobody believes in you, it feels pretty good."

- James Laurinaitis

 

Dongyun Lee

"The truth is the Super Bowl long ago became more than just a football game. It's part of our culture like turkey at Thanksgiving and lights at Christmas, and like those holidays beyond their meaning, a factor in our economy."

-Bob Schieffer

 

Bill Sanderson

"I think it's human nature that we all tend to do much better in groups than we do alone."

-Richard Young
 

Ricardo Martinez

"I think as far as any kind of pressure on a football team or on an individual in professional sports really depends not only on that individual but the leadership they have on the team and the leadership they have on the coaching staff. A lot of times, they can divert some of those pressures off of the individual and off of the team."

Michal Dziekan - Switzerland Jolts Currency Markets

Back in 2011, during the eurozone crisis, Switzerland place a 1.2 cap on the Swiss Franc to the Euro and acted true to its part as the traditional cash safe haven. Yesterday, that cap was removed and the Swiss Franc soared against the Euro, as did the mortgage rate of anybody who saw Switzerland as their stable mortgage option. Michal Dziekan did three personal pieces on this topic, check out the striking images below.

Adrenaline Junkies

 
Richard Solomon Artists Representative
 
Adrenaline Junkies
 
Oscar Ramos
“I get called an adrenaline junkie every other minute, and I'm just fine with that."
-Steve Irwin
 
Ricardo Martinez
"I think I have an adrenaline addiction, no question about that."
-Tom Waits
 
Dongyun Lee
"I'm an adrenaline guy. I like to do stuff that gets my blood pumping, like roller coasters or jumping out of planes. I'm into all that crazy stuff."
-Ja Rule
 
Tyler Jacobson
"Adrenaline is the reason I do what I do."
-Julianne Hough
 
Piotr Jablonski
"I'm one of those people that likes adrenaline and new things, like extreme sports. It makes me feel alive."
-Gisele Bundchen
 
Ted Wright
"People have always liked to be frightened. People love to feel that jolt of adrenaline. People love roller coasters. People love skydiving. These things that really get your heart pumping..."
- Aaron Stanford
 
Mark Summers
"Adventure is worthwhile in itself."
-Amelia Earhart
 
Gregory Manchess
"It is the greatest shot of adrenaline to be doing what you have wanted to do so badly. You almost feel like you could fly without the plane. "
-Charles Lindbergh
 
Chris Gall
"... It just made me feel alive. It's scary, but that's part of it. I think it's important to have that extra adrenaline. It gives you that extra zing."
- Emma Watson
 
David Palumbo
"In accounts of men in battle, there is an incredible adrenaline rush from group-versus-group conflict. The fervor and passion of partisans is clearly rewarding; and if it's rewarding, it involves dopamine, then it is potentially addictive."
-Jonathan Haidt
 
CF Payne
"I'm riveted by extreme sports...I'm fascinated partly becasuse the sports are so exhilaratingly acrobatic. But I'm also captivated by the fear that a terrible accident might happen at any moment. And accidents do happen."
-Lucy Walker
 
Thomas Ehretsmann
"Adrenaline is an amazing thing."
- Mitch Gaylord
 
Paul Cox
"I don't want to be made pacified or made comfortable. I like stuff that gets your adrenaline going."
-Kathryn Bigelow
 
Kent Barton
"If you have a life which is adrenaline-charged all week long because you're a powerful CEO, or you have responsibilities and you're committed to the people you look after, it's very difficult on weekends to sit around the garden. So you probably look for something which gives you the same sort of adrenaline buzz."
-Ernesto Bertarelli
 
Michal Dziekan
"I pretty much operate on adrenaline and ignorance."
- Johnny Knoxville
 
Michal Lisowski
"A huge adrenaline rush is usually followed by a pretty low point."
-Bode Miller
 
Goni Montes
"The physical sensation of gliding with the wind in your face is exhilarating. That automatic activity of pedalling, when you have to be awake but not think too much, allows you to let subconscious thoughts bubble up, and things seem to just sort themselves out. And the adrenaline wakes you up if you weren't properly alert."
-David Byrne
 
John Mattos
"I like adrenaline, that's something I feed off. I'm just going to go out there and do my best"
- Jessica Ennis
 
James Bennett
"I'm an adrenaline junkie. I love climbing crazy trees or cliffs, which doesn't make my mom very happy."
-Stephen Colletti
