Love & Death - A New Photoexpressionist Mindscape from Wayne King

Image
A New Image: "Love and Death"
This mixed media montage creates a surreal and abstract image. It is created from two images captured on the same walk last week along the railroad tracks in Plymouth and then into Langdon Woods one of my favorite spots for both walking and photographing.

As I walked along the railroad tracks I passed by an area beneath a bridge where graffiti artists had filled the wall beneath the bridge with their work but little of it held any interest for me. Fortunately, the wall was beneath a bridge and could not be seen from the road coming into Plymouth so it did not create an eyesore. A bit further along however a simple painting of a cloud on a low gray cement wall had somehow attracted an interesting vine as well creating the image below.



The image, worthy of its own title and capture I have titled "Life and Death" It is art created by the nexus between the work of the graffiti artist and "the creator" and only borrowed by me - …

Wayne King's Art on Exhibit in Lincoln August 2017

August is the second month of a two month exhibition of images by Rumney-based artist Wayne King. The exhibit features some of King’s most popular images including Alton Washday and Wonalancet Mindscape.

Wayne D. Kings images are a celebration of life, blending the real and the surreal to achieve a sense of place or time that reaches beyond the moment into what he calls "a dreamlike quintessentialism" designed to spark an emotional response. Using digital enhancement, handcrafting, painting, and sometimes even straight photography, King seeks to take the viewer to a place that is beyond simple truth to where truth meets passion, hope and dreams.

A community reception is scheduled for Friday August 18 from 6pm-8pm at the library.

An online gallery of additional images available as both signed originals and open edition pri…
