Love the piece to the left, it gives the illusion of third dimension against a two dimensional background.

There is quite a trick of the eye here, as Ralph posted. It looks cool.

Always interesting to see how folks try to promote their stuff . .

@Ronnie 2¢: Well - there were added dynamics here. These were 'finals' for The San Francisco Art Institute Graduate Program. The lesson it seemed was if you're in school - work big. The school uses this venue and (I assume) assigns the spaces. Those poor folks with standard sized hangable art were relegated to the hallways and passageways. These were places you couldn't hang a six foot high canvas as it would be destroyed. With the high volume of people there - the stuff in the narrows became unviewable.

As one might expect with a student show - there were some things that seemed 'half-baked' or amateurish - but most of the works were excellent and there were a few that I would describe as brilliant.

What an amazing array of art and displays in this frame alone! I'll bet it was almost mesmerizing to walk atound and look at all the styles and genres...Beautifully done Stephen!
