INFINITY ART at Paradise City Fine Art Fair

This weekend at Paradise City in Northampton, Ma, Amy and I were delighted to meet Douglas Durkee, designer and artist, extraordinaire, of the amazing INFINITY LIGHT sculptures. Douglas designs in his Kentucky studio, contemporary tables, clocks, and mirrors, using hundreds of LED lights to create a fractal image.  This in turn, creates an optical illusion, a 3-D effect tricking the eye to view the interior, as infinite space.  His sculptures were the hit of the ever popular event, which ranks 3rd in the nation, of the best fine art fairs.  I purchased his STARBURST TO INFINITY mirror, which has burnished and brushed aluminum design over black matte finish.  The suspended starburst has thousands of lights that converge in the center, in gold and white. It truly is a phenomenal work of art that will illuminate my hallway.

Homage to Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The Confession: "Let the living, she said, Inquire of the dead, In the house of the pale-fronted images, My own true dead will answer for me. That I have not loved amiss, in my love for all these."

My new assemblage, an Ode to John Greenleaf Whittier's poem, The Farewell, a Virginia mothers anguish over losing her daughters to her fate as they are sold into slavery, as she once was. " From Virginia's hills and waters . Woe is me, my stolen daughters!"
