Poppycock by Martyn Thompson

Beautiful exhibition at CoolGraySevenFineArt by Martyn Thompson. The work reflected the transformation of found image that had been distressed, destroyed and deconstructed by bleaching, dying and above all, reconsidering through creative crops. The levels of digestion are amazing as you try to decipher what it is you are looking at. whether its crude cave-man like murals or photographs of cliffs that mentally bring you in, its the level of consideration and visual reconstruction that allow you to fall into the photographs. My personal favorite was Poppycock #53 - digesting the image was easy... loving it was easier.
