Richard Edelman's exhibition opening of his Liminal Portraits was last Saturday at the Davis Orton gallery in Hudson NY. It is a great show.
Imagine my surprise to discover that this first shot, "Lucinda #1" in the Liminal Series, the one that was made spontaneously during Ward Fleming's birthday party, and led to so many more, was published in both the New York Times Sunday edition and the Albany Times Union.
That's the beauty. One just never knows where something will lead, when those first few steps begin and you push into the screen, revealing yourself, in gentle play.

It's been so freeing, this wild ride.
This first in my collage series, titled "Flame" was the stepping off point. She gave birth to all that has followed. While she burns in the licking fire, devoured by passion, all she surrenders becomes transformed. Entering into the air, lifted by wild winds of change, these essences filter to the fertile ground. There they burrow under, rooting. The small sprouts reach for the light and spread their tender leaves.
This is what life is for us. Our emotions and interests bring us to a precipice. It is up to us to make the leap. Then caught in the warm embrace of the current, we fly. Higher than ever imagined. As Todd Rudgren said "This time I'm not coming down."
