When Art Changes Us

There’s something about Spanish artists that, if they don’t fragment reality on the canvas, then they do it to the viewer. I mean, have you ever seen Guernica? Have you ever seen anyone after viewing Guernica? This couple learned the lesson of fragmented viewers the hard way … they viewed … they fragmented …

The event was the opening of Angel Gomez’ exhibition at Ingrid Mueller Art + Concepts on January 25 (can you believe it’s almost the end of January?). The turnout, as usual for Fredericton’s Princess of Art, was enthusiastic.

Notice how, even at the beginning of the evening, signs of fragmenting are prominent. Later, when there were several thousand people in the gallery, the crowd turned into one large viewer named Hal.

Of course, Ingrid herself was there to greet everybody and make introductions and just general give the place its real sense of class. Ingrid’s devotion to the arts has reached a level where she’s actually become art …

And the picture below … well … I saw this corner in one of the rooms off from the main gallery and it just struck me as cool …
