Artist Art Venti likes to experiment with shadow, light and depth in an environment that starts with a forest of tissues in a light box. The view in this box of translucent paper suggests landscape scenes that seem to move and change as the sun crosses the sky. If the inferred panorama is beguiling enough, the mind will move from the seen to the unseen and finally to what can only be a dream. Sketches of these moments are assembled and used as an elementary scaffold to begin what becomes elaborately constructed worlds drawn in color pencil. When they are complete, the observer will have an opportunity to travel through random meaning to find his own personal significance.
