Luminous Lens Exhibition Catalogue

Saturday, April 3, 2010

The works you see in this exhibit are the culmination of my passion for photography and desire to create and share my artistic vision with those around me. More importantly, my work would mean little without the support, encouragement and validation of the great people I am proud to call my friends. A very heartfelt thanks to one in particular, Tricia Aferdita, who not only encouraged me to finish this exhibit but provided an incredible venue in which to feature it. Tricia’s enthusiasm for and support of my work means so much. She is a tireless supporter and promoter of the arts and is an inspiration to those who are fortunate enough to know and work with her. She is also a fabulous artist in her own right.

This catalogue would certainly not have been possible without the enthusiasm, creativity, and eloquence of Rowan Derryth. Her appreciation of this collection of works and the excitement with which she talked of the need for an exhibition catalogue are why you read these words today. Through an extremely interesting experiment (see Ekphrasis: PJ Trenton on the Prim Perfect blog ~, these works now have a much deeper meaning and their own stories as a result of Rowan’s eloquent keystrokes.

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank intrepid publisher extra-ordinaire, Saffia Widdershins for her support of this exhibit and catalogue and for exposing me to the artistic and photographic potential of the wide world of Second Life.

A complimentary copy of the exhibit catalogue is available from a kiosk at Exposure Art Gallery ( Purchase the Thinc book for $0L and either wear it or rezz it to read (I recommend rezzing it).

Thanks Ceejay...I'm very proud of how it turned out and feel that it truly does justice to Rowan's writing and analysis.

Thanks once again for casting your critical eye on it in preparation for publication.
