GC Myers- SimplexThe last couple of weeks here I have been mentioning the Gallery Talk at the Kada Gallery in Erie, PA tomorrow, Saturday, April 11.  Events begins at noon with a reception at the gallery with the Talk beginning at 1 PM.  One of the highlights of the day is the drawing which takes place immediately after the talk where one attendee will win one of my paintings.

The painting to be given away is a 10″ by 30″ canvas titled Simplex that is shown above.  As I have pointed out in the past, I try to choose significant pieces to be given away these events and I think this painting fits the bill nicely.  I liked this piece from the moment it emerged and always felt there was a certain understated elegance in it.

The word simplex means having only one component and it fit for me,the painting seeming to be about the idea of  existing in simplicity, focusing on nothing but that very moment of being and the pleasures of that moment : The enjoyment of one’s solitude or  feeling the warmth of of the sun or the coolness of the breeze.  The quiet pleasure in watching the clouds move in the sky.  Simple things and simple moments that, if we recognize them, give our lives greater depth and meaning.

And that’s what I see in my view of this painting.  Hopefully, some lucky person will find similar meaning in it tomorrow.

So, if you are in the Erie area tomorrow please stop in at the Kada Gallery.  The talk looks to be entertaining and there will be some other surprises along with the drawing so I hope to see you there on Saturday.
