On Art and Photography

“Art is a meeting place in which human beings commune at a level that ordinary language and sign systems do not allow.”

 

- J. F. Martel, Reclaiming Art in the Age of Artifice: A Treatise, Critique, and Call to Action, (Evolver Editions, 2015)

About This Site

 

The work on this site is organized into sequences - like movies with a few frozen actors and an obscure plot. Captions and explanatory text are footnotes, not part of the story. The viewer is the director, the cast, and the audience.
