Reno, Nevada (PRWEB) October 4, 2007
The World Legacy Project and Foundation is a global umbrella showcase and educational model for solutions and innovation from around the world. Sculptor Jeff Tritel has been commissioned to create four monumental bronze sculptures, the first of their kind. Blue Lotus Intl. Inc has contracted with the artist to use these monuments as the centerpieces of their global endeavor.
Mari Tierney, CEO of Blue Lotus Int’l Inc. talks about the monuments as modern day Stonehenges with a message, “Jeff Tritel has created a new art form that will place him in the history books.
Tritel’s designs are illusional sculptures that the viewer can walk through and interact with unlike any other art form on earth. Rich visual, figurative images, water elements and canyonesque pillars will give visitors a whole new way of looking at sculpture. As with all of Tritel’s works, the monuments are intended to create strong paradigm shifts in perception.
Along with the monuments, Blue Lotus Int’l Inc. has been granted exclusive representation of Jeff Tritel’s body of work. To head up Jeff Tritel Sculpture , Sales and Marketing division, they have brought in Kerry Romano Zall as the CEO. Kerry comes to Blue Lotus Int’l Inc. with an accomplished career helping numerous companies build their teams and increase their sales and market share. She has long record of proven leadership, and joins the team with a powerful vision of the future.
“Kerry is a dynamic and talented businesswoman whose passion for Jeff’s work will bring exciting ideas and fresh energy to the art world and will help impart the overall vision of Blue Lotus International,” says Tierney.
“We are extremely proud to have Kerry as part of our team. Jeff Tritel Sculpture will set a new benchmark in monumental sculpture as well as sculpture for the home and business environments. Kerry’s enthusiasm for Jeff ‘s art will make her an asset for our international presence,” claims Bonnie Tritel, CEO of Tritel Studios, that has marketed the artist’s work for over 20 years.
The multi-million dollar contract is the first stone in a path toward a global phenomenon supported by Blue Lotus and the World Legacy Project. According to Indigo Cantor, CEO of the World Legacy Project, negotiations are underway for placement of the monuments, current prospects include the UAE, USA, South Africa and the UK. “The monuments and visitor centers stand as pillars to our overall mission, which is to showcase worldwide solutions,” says Cantor.
About Jeff Tritel:
Born in 1949, Jeff Tritel (http://www.jefftritelsculpture.com) did not embark upon his lifelong passion - sculpting - until the age of eighteen. At that time he was enrolled in college, majoring in mathematics. His artist roommate was involved in the process of copying a masterpiece as an assignment. Jeff's argument began with "Can't you do something original?" As the argument heated up, the roommate finally stated, "If you think it is so easy, let's see you try it!" Jeff immediately went to the art supply store, bought a large quantity of clay and began work on a self-portrait. He was hooked, changing his major to art and graduating in 1976 from the University of California with a BA in fine art and a BFA in sculpture
Over the years, Tritel has challenged himself with most mediums. He has sculpted in wax as a first step to the lost-wax method of bronze casting and he has fabricated monumental mixed media pieces incorporating the contrasts of furs and fiberglass, bronze screening and pearlescent lacquers. His work mainly reflects a figurative medium and he often draws from fantasy, mythology and psychology for his subject matter.
Tritel has received numerous awards as well as extensive media coverage. His painstaking precision and thought which he dedicates to each piece has earned him recognition from the California Art Review, Encyclopedia of Living Artists, and Artist's Market. His work has been featured on PBS TV and in gallery and museum shows around the country.
But winning awards has never been as important to Tritel as creating sculpture that touches his audience. "I sculpt my feelings and experiences. I sculpt the human condition," he says. "Even though we are all unique individuals, I find there are many common threads that connect us. I find that many people are able to relate very strongly to these sculptural expressions."
"Often I start with an intellectual premise. Then by incorporating personal sculptural symbolism, I will reach the essence of the subject." Tritel adds, "Rather than sculpting the musician, I sculpt the music. Instead of the unicorn, I sculpt the magic."
