I created the Dog is My Witness Series in 2012. While I'm not a religious person in the classic way, I consider myself spiritual and I'm constantly amazed by the stories and myth of any religion. I'm fascinated by Jesus. In this series my dog, Steve (who is also a pit bull - having such a bad rep) is following Jesus' path, having conversations with him, and just generally enjoying himself. It's a relationship I'd like to have. In this series, through my lovely dog, I'm creating a religion-friendly, open space to explore and learn more.
Hi. My name is Rita Bolla, and I was born in Budapest, Hungary. After receiving an MFA degree from the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, I travelled and exhibited in several major cities in Europe and America. I moved to the United Stated in 2009, the choice I cherish ever since. I lived in New York City, Los Angeles, the mountains of San Bernardino, California, and recently moved Upstate New York, to the Hudson Valley area. I am looking for peace, searching for the secret symmetry within Zen and Chaos. When I'm not painting or thinking about painting, I love spending time with my family in nature, cook good food and take or teach yoga.
