I am delighted to have several drawings in "Visual Therapy" exhibition curated by Stacy Conde of Conde Contemporary.
"Visual Therapy - The Effects of Art as Manifestation on Artist and Viewer" opens Thursday, September 28th, 2017, 6:00pm at The Frank, gallery and exhibition hall in Pembroke Pines, Florida.
"Visual Therapy", conceptualized by Conde Contemporary Gallery Director and author, Stacy Conde, features two immersive video installations, photorealistic, academic, and expressionistic portraiture, conceptual art, surrealism, photography, and performance art. "Visual art offers a direct view into the mind of its creator. A work of art begins with a thought formed in the artist’s mind. The artist manifests their vision, creating a physical object. …a representation of an inner reality. The creation of this object, or work of art, has an impact on both the artist and viewer.
Though conventional wisdom would have us focus on art and not the artist, this exhibition, “Visual Therapy”, examines both the psychological motivations of the artist and the response their work evokes in the observer. "Do they correlate? Does it matter?” explains Conde.
