What Lies Beneath the Ocean Floor

exposed [ɪkˈspəʊzd] adj.
Not concealed and displayed for viewing. Without shelter from the elements. Susceptible to attack or criticism. Vulnerable. Open. Unprotected, unveiled, uncovered, unclothed. Exhibited. It's a feeling of nakedness and an emotion of uncertainty. 

An artist's work is always subjected to those experiences.

As the day approaches, we are nervous at where Heemskerk Illustration will go. Filled with questions and uncertainty of whether the art of an illustrator fares well in a gallery amongst the works of a technical photographer, fine artists, and abstract artists. 

"Art" is subjective. I have watched Bryan significantly improve over the past seven years that I have known him. As his wife of almost two years, honesty and constructive criticism is allowed between us, and I am not going to expose all that I think and feel. But if you look at the pieces that he produces with pen, I personally think that he is 87% where I think he could be.

Several of his pen pieces will be displayed at Twist Gallery over the month of March, along with six of his paintings that he has also improved. Come and join us at Twist Gallery on March 8th, 2013 - this Friday from 7:00PM for the public exposure of what is Beneath the Ocean Floor.
