Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world. ~Arnold Newman

Not long ago I had the pleasure of meeting two artists, Jess Lopez-King and An Wine. The pleasure was unexpected since we met at a cemetery just before the service to bury my brother-in-law John. Unexpected to be sure but very appropriate since John & I shared an interest in art and time together at the William Penn museum in Harrisburg. But that museum trip will be for another time.
Jess is a photographer and An is a mixed media artist: together they share their work at WineKing Galleries. This is a new venture for them and and so I am hoping this small blurb will point your interest in the arts their way. I want to be clear here I am not mentioning them and pointing to their work just because I like them as people, but also as I am prone to do on this blog, I mention them because I really like their work.
Please take a moment to follow the link to their website; if you like what you see then tell them. Then if you have some time tell me you liked their work as well.
I am constantly amazed what people do with paper and it’s derivatives; Cara Barer is one of those people who amaze me. She calls herself a photographer but her art goes beyond the photograph. It’s easy to see why she calls herself a photographer since many of the pieces would not be seen as art without the single perspective of the camera lens but the word photographer does not contain within it the ability to describe the sculptures she creates with paper and lens. If I could I would create a new word but none will do her work justice.
