COLORS BY GDM
Is the latest installment by Visual Artist Geoffrey Doig-Marx (GDM). The Show COLORS takes a look at how an explosion of color/ or lack of colors can be used to create vibrant images. Living in NYC in the gritty 1980s, GDM was constantly amazed at the work by Graffiti/Street Artists whose images and tags yelled that they were here and living in NYC. A lot of GDM’s work conjures and pays homage to the artists friends he had and lost in those gritty days. GDM uses his brushes as a spray can and like the artist’s before him yells his name loudly to proclaim, “I’m still here.”
