Beside the opposing contrast, of that which is organic and free-flowing as to that which is precisely contrived and highly structured, ideas of: 'we the people', 'democracy' and language are also at work here. While thinking of the ancient Greek civilization of Corinth, the craddle of Democracy, I also think of the language of the masses (not an unusual description of grafitti or tagging) and how a blood-red message of anger scrawled across a symbol of power might be a fortelling of the fall of a great civilization. The corinthian columns seem to culminate into what might be viewed as the point of a scribes writing instrument. Consider the possible symbolic meanings of the colors white and red in the above stated contexts.

All materials, techniques and pigments used in producing this print are archivally in line with museum standards. Print is frontally titled and signed with copyright. A Giclee print (printed on a heavy watercolor paper substrate such as Arches) is available on a diffrent pricing structure. All measurments are from the image edges and do not include the generous griping border. Each print also include instructions for care and if followed will extend print-life so as to provide many, many decades (like between 15 and 20) of viewing pleasure. Buyer will pick-up actual shipping and insurance costs. Should you be in Manhattan when you place your order, I'll personally deliver the print for less than shipping/insurance. By purchasing any of my works, you agree to abide by U.S. copyright statutesenjoy! samfoto@earthlink.net

A native of Baltimore, MD, N.Y.C. has been my home for more than half my life. Four plus decades my artistic acts have passed through the glass eye of fine-arts photography. Most recent series of works are from the 'EquivalencE' series, an outgrowth of 'Synergi3s of Confluence' (SynCon), a continuing series. The central subject-matter are that shared space humanity & Nature inhabit. Such juxtapositions will oft result in foretelling ways, at times they will speak to formalities of esthetics, and others a more humorous narrative is close at-hand, all-the-while the relationship between Nature/humanity is context. Visual results are never passive, as these relationships are manifest within an atmosphere of correspondence. While the SynCon works rely on: a process of repurposing the original image via: duplication, selective cropping, and seamless reuniting along a common edge, whereas the EquivalencE works rely on the singular original image. Aspirations are two-fold: an engaging work of fine-art, and a redefining of the relationship between humanity & Nature to one of partnership.

Profile Will look at 'St. Marks Totem' and write a hopefully useful review. As to Bath, we are having difficulty selling our house in Derbyshire - largely because it is a large Victorian Villa with only a small garden (as a Town House), so Bath is on hold at the moment. But as soon as the house sells we...  
Profile If you are talking about 'St. Marks Totem', it is still on viewI'd be interested to know your thoughts on that one. Thanx 4 u'r many comments, some more insightful than others, but non-the-less much appreciated. By the way, when will you be making the move to Bath, I just can't wait to see the vi...  
Profile btw - what happened to the Totem Pole assemblage I liked that even more! david: )
