On my web-site, Sunset in Riverside Park, can be seen with other kaleidoscopic prints.The photograph above was taken at my one woman exhibition that took place in the Art Gallery of the Manhattan Borough President's office. This exhibition took place a few years after my interview with John Montone (see posting of January 6th 2010) and is the print we discussed in that interview.
During my radio interview, I told John Montone that one of the aspects that I liked about my kaleidoscopic work is the ambiguity, which allows each viewer to have a very different reaction. For instance, everyone has a different reaction to a subset depending on where they are geographically, or mentally, when they see it. Responses to sunsets are as varied as Woody Allen's, "Today I saw a red and yellow sunset and thought, how insignificant I am! Of course, I thought that yesterday too, and it rained" to Clement of Alexandria's, "The Lord has turned our sunsets into sunrises," with equally different responses in between such as Philip James Bailey's, "The death of day, how beautiful," as well as Walter Mondale's, "At least when Ronald Reagan rode off in the movies into the fiery sunset, he didn't take us with him."
My goal as an artist is to present a photographic experience, where the viewer can have a very personal reaction. Please note that all of my kaleidoscopic works can be hung vertically or horizontally, depending on the effect you want to achieve.
For those of you who don't have the wall space, or the inclination to hang art work, many of my kaleidoscopic prints have been rendered in the form of all occasion greeting cards that are printed on high quality art-paper and individually signed by me. Both my cards and my prints are available for purchase on my web-site.
These cards are a very chic way to announce that you have been snowed-in in your ski villa and are forced to spend time reading a novel by the fireplace, or to invite a friend to the Blessing of the Animals at Saint John the Divine, or to thank your co-worker for sharing a bottle of chilled Gavi to celebrate your raise, or simply to let your loved ones know that they are loved.
