TERRAIN GALLERY 50TH ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION [ to return click here ]


Perry Hall, Windows, Sun, Books, 2004, pigment print

Most of my work is about the city, the walls, windows, fire escapes, rooflines, water towers. I love how they constantly change with the light, dramatic in sun, subtle under cloud.

      This was a chance seeing of the drama of light in a window on West Broadway. The key opposites here are light and dark. One can’t understand or appreciate the one without the other; here the darkinfinite, almost ominousdramatically sets off the luminous books in the light of the evening sun. Light illuminates books, which, in turn, illuminate us.

      What beauty my images may possess is largely due to Aesthetic Realism, and the effect those who teach based on it, have had on my seeing.
