Principle Gallery, Geoffrey Johnson, Martin Poole and Holiday Small Works Show

Opening Saturday, December 3, 2011, 1:00-4:00pm
I'm happy to have couple pieces in this show!
“Veni, Vidi, Vici”, 14x11, oil on panel
“Fire Dance”, 8x10, oil on panel
Veni, Vidi, Vici was a really fun painting to do. I love it when I smile through the process! 

Fire Dance is a bit of a trek to our darker side but I enjoy going there too.
Geoffrey Johnson
From the Principle Gallery website, Geoffrey's Artist Statement:

A native of North Carolina, Geoffrey Johnson received his classical training at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia.  Since his time there, he has established himself as a true innovator, successfully capturing the alluring space between abstraction and realism.   A fascination with both the human figure and the powerful architecture of a modern city play a large role in his oils.  Through a feeling of anonymity, figures become suggestive shapes and the skyline of New York materializes mysteriously in the background.  The paintings embody the mood of each urban experience.
Martin Poole
I enjoy both these artist's work very much. They are spectacular in person. Here are links to the gallery's page for Martin Poole, and  Geoffrey Johnson.

Here are some of my other posts about shows at Principle Gallery.  It's located in Old Towne, at 208 King Street, Alexandria VA. Here's a link to the gallery's home page.
