When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Gregory Crewdson

For the most part I have avoided posting photography for two reasons. One, I do not think I am a particularly good judge of photography. And two, I know too many of them. But the work of Gregory Crewdson, it seems to me, bears little resemblance to most photography. There is no capturing the fleeting moment here. These large inkjet prints are very, very carefully composed and arranged, the color and light manipulated to the desired effect. All in all his approach appears to have more in common with narrative painting than anything else. Of course I love it.
It was very difficult to select images to include here since I would like to have included so many more. So please check out the rest of his work at the Luhring Augustine gallery.
