The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Homage to Vasarely

Victor Vasarely
French painter of Hungarian origin (Pécs, April 9, 1906 - Paris, March 15, 1997)
Victor Vasarely is a unique artist in the history of twentieth century art. Famous during his lifetime, he distinguished himself from contemporary art with the creation of a new movement: optical art. The evolution of his life of work is inherently coherent, progressing from graphic art to the artist’s determination to promote a social art that is accessible to all.

I remember, a number of years ago, artists were portrayed in department stores around here where we live. You could go in and see some famous things – some were prints and only a few originals.
