WOW! = Windows of Wonder, a non-profit art project created by Fabrica, Benetton’s grant-based innovation lab, developed in collaboration with YAI-Young Artists Incubator. WOW! was conceived by a team of under 25 year-old multidisciplinary designers. WOW! also stands for Windows of Wonder, the new United Colors of Benetton project for artists and designers from all over the planet. WOW! is a technologically innovative transmedia experience in creative expression based on a dedicated web portal and the network of “Benetton Live Windows”—the spectacular video wall shop windows of the Benetton Icon stores present in the key fashion capitals: Milan, London, Paris, Barcelona, and many more.
On the WOW! website, artists from any field of artistic expression (animation, motion graphics, video, digital art, music, theater, performance, dance, painting, graffiti, etc.) can access information on the initiative, register and easily upload their creative contributions for direct publishing. The most interesting works will be regularly selected to be made visible also on the “Benetton Live Windows” global network. Taking part is easy and to make it even smoother the great design team at WOW! will brilliantly and respectfully adapt the work, if needed, for the different video wall formats.
Kathy Blankley Roman has a background in illustration and calligraphy, then began painting expressively since 2010. In late 2011 she began exhibiting her paintings, was a winner in 7th Annual Emerging Artist Winter Exhibit at Morhpo Gallery in Chicago. “I was one of the winners, and will be featured there in a group exhibit in October 2012. Behind me: scent of pine through the woodsong, fog, Shakin’ it Up BeLow, and Edges.” Kathy Blankley Roman
Kathy recently had her art featured in an ebook titled, Walk into Abstraction-Vol. 4, and will be curating and participating in an all encaustic exhibit in August 2012.
Kathy Blankley Roman’s paintings explore the process of emergence and dissipation and the interactions (polarity) of opposing elements: eg. angular vs. curvilinear, geometric vs. organic, using an earthy palette. Building up her paintings in layers, using acrylics and various dry media on different surfaces – various papers, canvas, board - first making marks or scribbles, then painting over, repeating this process many times – acting and reacting to the marks, she works with what emerges from her impulses of the moment, going through many transformations. The artist has experimented with adding collage to her paintings, process painting without brushes, digital painting, and encaustic,often combining any number of these processes into one painting. Lately, she has experimented with adding more color into her artwork while maintaining the warm earthy tones. “I found that the layering and immediacy of the process translates easily to encaustic, a relatively new medium for me,” she says.

“Drawing is my preferred modality because—like ‘drawing a breath’—it is a natural act driven by impulses we cannot fully control. My most recent works explore mark-making through ‘glyphs’—ancient forms of writing that whose meanings remain mysteries. I translate the unique character of ancient human ‘signs’ through scratches, scribbles, or tracks deeply rooted in my soma and psyche.” Susan Spaniol
The artist Susan Spaniol lives in West Hartford, CT, USA and teaches at Springfield College. Visit her website to view many more artworks: www.susanspaniol.com
