Realty and Abstraction:

As a volunteer for  FOVEA exhibitions there is always a surprise around the corner, or at least walking through the front door. Shoulder to shoulder, photographers, authors  and artist stepping on the hardwood.

I’m constantly amazed at both the number and quality of talented photographers that come by to visit the gallery. I have often wondered why in twenty some years as a photo editor in southern California I didn’t meet more artist passing through the area?

I don’t know that there is more of an appreciation for the arts, but I do think that people take more time to enjoy art on the east coast.  From my experience I do find them more giving of their time in conversation pertaining to visual art specifically, and art in general.

This past weekend, a visit from John Nordell, photographer and instructor at Hallmark Institute of Photography was a wonderful treat.

John’s work in “Reality-based abstractions” is bold and exciting and opens up new avenues of expression as a photographer.

Multiple-exposure is nothing new to the photo scene but Nordell raises the bar with his beautifully constructed graphic images and technique.

Please don’t let my experiment above stop you from visiting John’s work or his blog.

Both offer an opportunity to be transported by a new vision and wonderful expression.
