Hello all. I have two of my most recent images in THE URBAN ART SHOW at Carter Sexton Art Materials / Gallery which opened last Friday evening, July 11, 2014. Carter Sexton is located at: 5308 Laurel Canyon Blvd., North Hollywood, CA 91607. Phone: 818-763-5050. The show will run from July 11th through August 1st.
My two pieces are titled SEPTEMBER and OCTOBER, and are from my minimalist/maximalist urban series, DREAMS ABOVE THE RIVER. They are each 14” x 18” and are mixed media consisting of digital archival printing, acrylic paints, gels, signed on the back. One image in each of these pieces (there eventually will be a total of twelve, named for the months of the year) consists of a cityscape of downtown Los Angeles, and was photographed by the brilliant artist, designer, photographer and friend Jayme Odgers. Thank you, Jayme, for allowing me to use this image as the foundation of the series.
Subject matter of DREAMS ABOVE THE RIVER is in homage to L.A,, the city I grew up in, from the age of five, with my parents and my brother Ray, and will include: nature, freedom of choice, love, compassion, war, health, art, money, spiritual awareness, anger, meditation, courage, relationships, prayer, fear, happiness, wisdom, peace, communication, oppression, humor, sex and balance. DREAMS ABOVE THE RIVER is descriptive of life on this planet and beyond.
Please stop by and view this unique show. Many thanks.
And many blessings, Rob
