a preview of joe sorren's new work for his upcoming show in rome, 'in a garden, where' was just posted over at hi-fructose by ken. i'd seen some of these spectral images in bits over on joe's facebook & was amazed by how far his work has evolved after viewing the preview. i love how his work situates itself on the locus between worlds, how his art can be appreciated and understood and felt by a variety of audiences. something about them speaks to me of childhood, how when one looks back on it, remembering the good parts in particular, they often appear muddy yet bright, the sharp lines smudged away like lipstick. in the same vein, i often think the afterlife could have this kind of blurred focus too.
