Current Exhibit: All Over the Place: Photo based work by Larry Chait
May 30 through July 10
My major motivation to create images is purely hedonistic: I want to elicit in myself the same feelings of awe and wonder and exaltation that I get from seeing the work of other artists. Fortunately, the fact that I rarely achieve this goal has so far not deterred me from continuing to try.
I care little about the manifest subject matter of my images; I’m attracted to anything with dramatic light and shadow, unusual textures, forms and patterns. I enjoy taking images to the brink of abstraction. Mostly, I just like to work with an image until a little voice in my head says to stop.
