Roberto C. Madruga was born and raised in Northern Virginia. After a bout of meningitis that almost killed him in 2009 and then undergoing two successful brain surgeries in 2010, he moved to Brooklyn with his wife and two cats. Between 2005 and 2010, he took over 25,000 photographs. He selected 100 of those photographs for Random Colorful Moments. This series explores his obsession with randomness. For the last two years, Roberto has been working on The Kitchen Portraits, a study of natural light that takes place in his kitchen in Gowanus. www.RCM.me
Charles Heppner is an artist who works in photography and mixed media. He has studios in Brooklyn and Chicago. His art concerns spirituality, self-reflection and meditation on his relationship to nature.
The two works presented here at Grumpy Bert's are part of "Hortus Noster in Urbe" (our garden in the city). A body of work in which Charles uses a flatbed scanner to photograph the flowers of his gardens at his studio in Chicago. www.charlesheppner.com
