Saturday, March 27, 2021: Homage to Walt Whitman (Part Two)

Walt Whitman died 129 years ago yesterday. My parents had a beautiful edition of Leaves of Grass that was published in 1940, but I never looked at it until last year. And then I was totally blown away by the poet’s profound embrace of all creation. I think I know why the book isn’t found in every house of worship but that’s where it really belongs.

In the images below, I’ve paired some of Lewis C. Daniel’s beautiful illustrations with images that I’ve posted on Pixetera over the years. It’s my small way of paying homage to St. Walt.

Saturday, February 6, 2021: “This Is Us, Regional Portraiture Today” at the Springfield Museums

Today was the phase two opening of the Springfield Museums’ This Is Us: Regional Portraiture Today exhibit being held in conjunction with the Smithsonian’s The Outwin 2019: American Portraiture Today that is also on display here in Springfield.

As regular visitors to Pixetera know, I’ve not been shy about having my own pop-up shows, courtesy of Photoshop, at other museums, e.g., MoMA, Dia:Beacon, Smith College Museum of Art — a surprisingly satisfying form of presenting work that makes up for its limited exposure with seriously reduced printing and framing costs :)

Happily though that wasn’t necessary for this regional show (not every artist lives within a 3-block radius of the museums as I do though). Below are two photographs from the exhibit, along with a new one made from discarded test prints.

If Roses Were the Only Flower

Just in case you missed the original announcement, here’s a plug for the book I published this summer. It’s a collection of poetry, both reverent and humorous, that I wrote on the subject of diversity, accompanied by images from Pixetera and my earlier career as a professional photographer. Its inspiration was the doctrine of signatures, an ancient belief system that saw evidence of a plant’s healing properties in its physical characteristics. With that as a starting point, the 11 poems and 43 photographs offer a whimsical antidote to the persistent racism that threatens our nation’s health and unity.

Books are available for purchase here. For more information, or if you’d like a personalized, autographed copy, please contact me directly.
