SUMMERTIME

Micheal McLaughlin, Rio, 2002

I love this piece and wanted to use it in the last project I worked on in Venice Beach. Micheal McLaughhlin's work is represented by Robin Rice Gallery and Robin was kind enough to send me an invite to the opening reception that is tonight in NYC. Obviously I won't be able to make it because I'm here in Los Angeles, but if you are in New York, you should:

The Robin Rice Gallery announces the annual group show of photographs by gallery artists entitled SUMMERTIME Salon 2011. The opening reception will be held on Wednesday June 29 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. The show runs through September 11, 2011.

Rio, 2002 by Micheal McLaughlin instantly sets the mood. A unique perspective from above a stretch of white sandy beach speckled with multi-colored umbrellas in the foreground, it then ebbs from the aqua surf to a wide expanse of brilliant blue ocean. When viewed from afar it’s reminiscent of Mark Rothko with its horizontal color blocks. Upon closer inspection, the details are filled with the promise of summer…from sandcastles and flirtations on the beach to laughter left in the wake of a tiny speedboat. It’s the perfect blend of contemporary and timeless.
