To illustrate the “grid-able” methodology behind my “Vortex” series of geometrical abstracts, I’ve installed a simple 2×2 grid created from four complimentary 34″ diagonal Vortexes. Naturally, this method can be applied to fewer units — or many more. And the installation can contain complimentary colors as in this photo, or contrasting hues to create tension and drama.
Based on requests from some of our booth visitors at the Deep Ellum Arts Festival over the weekend, I have crafted some new additions to my Tr?Z collection which can be found on my Vivid Pixelz website.
The Tr?Z collection is comprised of vividly manipulated (predominantly) Winter trees, twisted into a dimensionally different view. Many of these images look alien, most are vivid (some are monochromatic) and all look very different from any native growth you’ve ever seen before.
All images are available from 16×20 matted prints to massive stretched canvases or luster-finish framed prints. All finished prints (canvas or framed) are signed and numbered Limited Editions of 100. The largest prints are nine feet wide!
One of the newest additions:
For those not intimately familiar with the Deep Ellum Arts Festival, it is located in the Deep Ellum entertainment district of Dallas, where six blocks of Main Street are transformed into one enormous street festival featuring 200 juried artists, 100 bands on 5 different stages — and 30 restaurants.
This will be our first year exhibiting at Deep Ellum and our new booth is loaded with examples of some of my finest – and newest creations.
Naturally we will have work from my book on Texas. But we will be exhibiting, the new Vortex series, and for the first time, some of the recently-introduced Tr?Z collection and NYC images.
So come on down and enjoy this perfect Spring weekend.
We are in booth 184, near the Good Latimer end of the festival.
