For this show, I designed a 55-foot mural, which serves as a festive backdrop for the antique model trains that are displayed on the gallery's west wall. The overall collage design incorporates the NYC subway map, with a scattering of images from vintage engravings. The predominant use of the aqua/blue color scheme is a nod to Grand Central's celestial ceiling in the main hall.See More
"Hello from upstate New York, in my studio, and wishing you a very successful opening and exhibition. Lanny, the translations into the paint medium are wonderful. I always love to see the scale changes from digital to paint. - All…"
That's a wonderful word, 'comfortable,' and interesting to me, because I created this collage at a time when I was not feeling well. Perhaps I was seeking an harmonious space. Thanks so much.
My working method has been to create equivalent palettes from my collages and photomontages for translation into the medium of oil paint. This back and forth between collage and oil painting has been a lifelong engagement. I have always sought color mastery and color is the subject of my work.
These latest pieces have a terrific sense of dancing, of floating...such a wide and interesting range you have when compared with the nearly digital effects of the spectator paintings, all works which invite the viewer to come on in for reverie.
