Murphy Hill Gallery II
Ralph Murphy stopped by the store last week
and alerted me to the new exhibit in his gallery.
As usual, it wasn't artists that he had selected,
but at least someone had selected them
(their sales rep)
one of them was George C. Clark
a member of my art club
whose drawings show up many times
I've known George for 30 years,
there's always something both strange
about his scenes.
This is Halloween
(see the little ghost ?)
There's no axe murderer here,
sudden and violent
death is in the air.
This artist goes by the name Isz.
I think that if a person feels this way,
she should sit down
and take a few deep breaths
it certainly feels well crafted
This is an image
that never saw paint and brush,
except within a program like Photoshop.
The artist is Eric Sorensen.
I just like to lie on the grass
and look up at the trees.
This was my big discovery for the day,
the photography of John Segami.
I'm not a big fan of photography
(except of statuary)
but these images
just sucked me right into their mysterious world.
They seem so well designed,
I thought that John Sagami had
manipulated them as digital images,
He's just using all the tools of
of a good, old fashioned camera.
it's such a busy scene,
and yet it makes me feel so relaxed
and here's my favorite.
It feels just the way I "see"
the episodes in the Shanghai novels
I've been reading.
( I always read stories in black-and-white)
