There is a new exhibit of art at the Barcelona Restaurant & Bar – Columbus in German Village. The imagery Larry Hamill is presenting comes from the world of abstract 3 Dimensional Space and is translated into the 2nd Dimension.

The artwork on the walls of Barcelona is a new series of 3 dimensional imagery. In a way it is similar to aerial photography. The various shapes are created and placed on a flat white plane. The “camera” position is moved over the geometric landscape until a pleasing vantage point is selected. Low res renderings are done until the composition and light sources have a interesting visual resonance. At that time a high resolution file is rendered. 15% of the sales of this artwork will be donated to the German village Society.Barcelona_Panorama2-LR Barcelona-2Barcelona-1A different World of images is currently on display at Giuseppe’s Ritrovo Restaurant is in the city of Bexley at the corner of Drexel & Main Streets. This artwork concerns the interaction of Symmetry  and Asymmetry in older communities.

Visual Thresholds

Bryceway-3
Bryce software opens new ways of thinking about 3D space. To be able to add material qualities to shapes such as color, texture and reflectivity further adds to the creative possibilities. Just as in painting, one creates rough 3D sketches before committing them to days of rendering. This art form requires a seriously fast Mac.

3D Space: The Final Frontier

Geometric shapes, color, light and shadows come together in this image intense post of Bryce imagery.  Time disappears while working in this conceptual 3D environment and we think time will disappear for you as well as you sit back and allow yourself to be immersed in The Final Frontier.

Columbus Skyline Calendar Marks 20th Year

The year 2010 rings in the 20th year of our Columbus Skyline poster calendar, with this year’s skyline framed by Costa Rica’s golden mountains and the jagged Bryce Canyon.

After experimenting with a beta version of Photoshop, Larry created the first skyline calendar in 1991, using Photoshop’s first edition software. That year, Larry also coined the term, photilation, to describe his creative process of combining photography and illustration.

The 1991 edition featured the San Gabriel Mountains in California with a Costa Rican shoreline. Having traveled to exotic locations including Bali, Namibia, China and Ecuador, among others, all stock photography incorporated into each year’s calendar was photographed by Larry.

Intended as a fun piece with a practical application, each year the calendar has been embedded with faces of friends, family, pets and an assortment of other oddities.

In 2000, the Alhambra in Granada, Spain served as the foreground with the Lewis mountain range in Glacier National Park serving as the backdrop. Portraits of local celebrities, Fred and Howard, who formerly owned the Hausfrau Haven in German Village, can be seen in the Alhambra’s arches.

Over the years, Kreber has supplied the color separations, while printing services were provided by Century Graphics, who sadly closed their doors last year.  This year’s calendar was printed courtesy of Richardson Printing Corp. along with Millcraft Paper.

In keeping with a tradition started by Fred and Howard years ago, the 2010 Columbus Skyline calendar is available at Hausfrau Haven, located at 769 S. Third St. in German Village.

CATCO Looms Large in Creative Community

Catco-1024

Columbus’s own Contemporary American Theatre Company celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. To commemorate the date, we teamed up with CATCO and Grange Insurance to produce an anniversary poster. Signed copies of the poster were available to theatre goers at last Friday’s opening of Blackbird.

The challenge was getting images from 27 past Playbills onto the letters, which make up the Hollywood-style sign. After photographing the individual letters, the Playbill images were added in Photoshop. The poster below was also produced for CATCO fifteen plus years ago.

We salute the creative group at CATCO for continuing to bring quality theatre to local audiences. Tickets for Blackbird, which runs through June 26, are still available.
