I thought I would share some photos of the installation. The exhibit took five people including myself nine hours to install. It was installed by the best team I have ever worked with. If not for them I the show would have been so professionally hung. My sincere thanks to:
CJ Orbanak, Jennifer Prunty (my wonderful daughter) and Carl.
And I was so fortunate to have one of the worlds leading color, print, lighting experts and dear friend George Kondogianis adding his expertise to the installation.
About the Exhibit
With more than fifty drawings and paintings relating to environmental issues, this exhibit is my shared artistic journey--- a quest to encourage awareness of the pollution problem manifested through my creative “lens” as a visual artist. The exhibition presents artwork created over the past decade driven by the impact of environmental violations upon our planet. I hope this presentation presents an acknowledgment of our silent participations. We are one together in what can be a harsh awareness. My artwork intends to create a dialog and discussion regarding the ever-increasing threat to life on earth from the pollution of the air, sea, and land.
The drawings and paintings in the exhibit speak to the issues of ecological threats from carbon dioxide, micro plastics, and massive amounts of trash negatively impacting the existence of all life forms.
