Deep Trance Art Blog
We all come from somewhere. We all have a past. Mine included a deep desire to help publicize original music created in the Albany NY area in the 80's, as well as to introduce the Capital Region to new music and art being created globally in those years.
Since then I've discovered my passion for helping people with clinical hypnosis and finding creative ways to use visual art and hypnosis together to enhance change.
I was fortunate to have a writer, Debbie Bump, interested enough in what I do, to interview me for the new publication Xperience. This article coincides nicely with my current art exhibit at the PH Gallery, 455 Broadway, in Troy and my upcoming art show at Uncommon Grounds Albany 1235 Western Ave, opening Friday May 17.
I'll be demonstrating Hypnosis and my Hypnosis process Pictrance in Hudson at the Hudson Underground, 124 Warren St, Hudson, NY 4-6pm Friday June 15.

Uncommon Grounds for an Art Show featuring George Guarino
Getting ready for a steady stream of showing art around the Capital Region.
Currently I have three pieces showing at the Honest Weight Co-op in Albany. One piece has already sold! Made me feel so good to get the phone call telling me that the night manager Mike wanted to buy the piece. We met and made the exchange right away. He took the piece home that night. Had to have it right away.
Here's Mike ready to take his piece of DeepTranceArt home.
I was honored to be selected to be a part of the Troy Art Center's Fence Select Show. The show runs all month long, Aug. 2018. Lots of interesting work in the show. Here I am next to my selected piece. Click here to go to the Art Center's website.

A select show is created from these pieces in mid-February. It's a good show and I'm glad to say my four pieces got nice space in the front room on the left wall as you enter the gallery. I even caught people looking at them. Wonder what they're thinking?

Last year is gone and 2015 has just arrived. Below is a picture of my first animated projection art, STAIN, projected on the wall outside the Albany Center Gallery on Columbia Street in Albany, NY in early December. I was able to park in a non-descript legal parking space and project the image perfectly onto the wall without being noticed. It was great because it was the opening night of this year's ACG Member's show and I was able to go inside and invite friends to come out and see what I had waiting for them. Great night. Lasted for about an hour and a half before the equipment got over heated and it had to be turned off. Til next time...

Halloween night, Oct 31, 2014, I projected a series of agreenos on the huge wall by Bombers in Troy, NY thanks to the behind the scenes organization of my brother Dave. It was awesome! Hope to do many more projection exhibits in the near future.

Tonight I hung my new show entitled "My Minds."
It hangs in the lobby of the Capital Repertory Theatre, 111 North Pearl St, Albany, NY. I had space to hang a dozen digital collage pieces and a dozen ink transfers on wood.
The official opening of the art show isn't until Albany's First Friday, Oct. 4 but the theatre's new play 'Venus In Fur' opens in a week and members will be wandering in and around so I wanted to get the show hung early. Amanda Marshall, Cap Rep's new Operations Manager was very enthusiastic about the pieces.
I'm looking forward to some insightful observations and perhaps some street hypnosis and even some sales. It feels good to have my pictures hanging in a place that folks will be able to have a discusion about them. Cap Rep's gallery is the place that show goers congregate before the show and during intermissions. Drinks and light food are served. It's the place where folks mingle and meet. A good place to show art.
Here's an example of the ink transfers on wood.

Here's a picture of the digital collage wall:
It will look a lot better with folks milling around
in front of the pictures looking and discussing.

George Guarino - I am a Hypnotist by profession... I am an Artist by nature.
For everyone, September 11th has a special meaning... but for me, September 11, 2005 was the day I completed my hypnosis certification.
This meant that I was qualified to go out and share the skills I had learned to help clients improve their lives to make powerful changes that ripple through their work, their relationships, their family, and most importantly their own self-esteem, knowing that they are not stuck in the past but rather they have the power to move forward and become free.
I've learned much since that day, much that I share with clients, and much that I have grown to know about myself. Yes, I use self-hypnosis every day.
From the beginning I knew I was an artist. I had gone through high school and then college as an art student at the State University of New York at New Paltz and then further at the State University at Albany in New York. Yet I didn't have my images, I didn't have anything worthy to say. Now I do.
