very graphic
works of art and exhibition space complement each other

I especially like the installations --- very physical, very Richard Serra. And I understand your reticence, but more words, please. What do you think of these works?

Ann, thank you for your comments, they are always welcome here.
To your question: I think Chris Rochelle is doing some of the most interesting abstract photography I've encountered. But the more important question: what do YOU think of these works?

(I often add a bit of information on the artists and their work...or a link to their artist statement if it will give the viewer more of a flavor of the work. But I continually walk the line between saying too little or too much, and will always err on the side of less.)

If you visit Chris Rochelle's webpage link, you'll find he's even more reticent than I am!

My favorite living painter expressed it well I think:
'you can only express in words what words are capable of expressing, what language can communicate. painting has nothing to do with that.'
