“You Must Go Through a Lot of Blue”

This is a post from Edd Tokarz Harnas, a native Corning artist who now lives in Hawaii and still shows his work at the West End Gallery.

Living only about 3 blocks from the world’s largest body of water is certainly going to factor into my subject matter.  I’ve always been fascinated with using water and/or rocks for some of my artwork because of the interplay of abstract and realism/ pattern and color. Back then, a lot of my images came from photographing along some typical country streams.

Now, there’s a much wider scale for me to work with.  I sometimes take my camera on my morning walk, especially when I plan to go along the ocean, because I’m bound to see something useful for a future painting.  One such example is depicted in “In Balance,” on view in the 2010 LITTLE GEMS exhibit.  I’m including a couple other recent examples.
