Ted Larsen at McMurtrey Gallery

School Bus Line by Ted Larsen

My favorite of all is "School Bus Line". It is, as the title suggests, pure yellow. The structure is airy and dynamic. It tells just as much about the space it does not occupy as about the space it does. Hanging on the wall, its kinetic rhythm captures more negative space than the sculpture itself physically occupies.

A Decisive Look at Greece at Conduit Gallery

The best of the series are those depicting local residents and small business owners, caught off guard. They manifest the painter's virtuosity in rendering complex interior light onto cramped space of light-hued texture. The eerie light, almost palpable like a layer of thin air of uncertainty, skews the casual Mediterranean atmosphere into a modern psyche of shoestring living.
