These two striking contemporary pieces will be making the journey to Miami for exhibit at the SPECTRUM Art Show December 2-6, concurrent with exciting Art Basel week. Should be an exciting and stimulating week from the point of view of artist, collector, and gallerist. I’m working on a couple of smaller pieces to complement these larger works, but they’re not yet ready for prime time. More on that later. In the interim, many thanks to Gallery NK for making this opportunity available.
One of three paintings in a series, Corrected Vision #2 relates to how we see the world and how the world sees us. There is more than what is known through the eye. Body language, scent, gentleness or violence all inform the real person behind the facade.
The great George Bridgman of the Art Students’ League in New York asserted, “The difference in drawing is in what you sense, not what you see. There is other than that which lies on the surface.” While Bridgman no doubt referred to musculature and skeletal structure, I expand the interpretation of his comments to mean the substance of who we are – our heart and soul.
I know some say the eyes are the windows to the soul, but I like to think that our minds — our ability to feel and connect — really count.
