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 State Award Banner

Columbus State Community College, recently ranked the third largest educational institute in Ohio, recently honored teachers and staff.  As in years past, we had the opportunity to photograph the recipients, whose photos are reproduced onto six-foot high banners and displayed on campus throughout the academic year.

Through photilation, a technique of merging images with computer produced graphics, each recipient is portrayed will a background that illustrates their field of expertise.
