MARQUEE PROJECTS is exhibiting works by George Blaha in "WebSight" from August 30 through September 29, 2019. A Talk on the Sacred and Sublime in Buddhist Art takes place on Saturday, September 7, 2019, from 6 to 7 p.m. Titled "Images of Enlightenment," expect an introduction to the history of Buddhist art is given by Jackie Dennis Subhash, the Vice President and Head of Department of Indian, Himalayan and Southeast Asian Art at Christie's New York.
In the art on view, George Blaha draws our attention to the parallel between the computer’s virtual environment and our own inner, subjective world by using 2D and 3D software to build images of paintings, assemblages, sculptures and interior spaces. Blaha avoids the physical construction of object-making, giving himself greater leeway to philosophically explore and blur the boundaries between the real and the virtual.
MARQUEE PROJECTS is located at 14 Bellport Lane, Bellport, NY 11713. www.marqueeprojects.org.
