From the Artist: “A few years ago, I inherited my grandfather’s Mamiya 1000 DTL (a Japanese model film camera popular in the 1970s). I started shooting consistently since then. These photos are mostly shots taken on or near State Parks in Missouri. Photography has led me to some places I might not have been otherwise, and inspired me to explore the region with more of a purpose. For this collection, I put together photos that capture elements of our Ozarks environment and the qualities of its uninhabited areas.” www.facebook.com/bookmarxbooks

Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building, 214 W. Phelps, presents Reflections and Other Water Offerings: The Art of Lil Olive.
“A lake is a landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.”
—Henry David Thoreau, Walden
From the Artist: “Nothing influences me more than the beauty and mystery of the natural world. I am fortunate to live in the country, surrounded by a spring fed lake and two ponds. These waters have abundantly provided me with inspiration both visually and metaphorically.
“The ever-changing reflection of the sky, an ephemeral slant of light, an unexpected color, the movements and ripples from the wind. What is on the surface, and just like our subconscious, what lies underneath?
“I am also drawn to the disorientation of the landscape as it is mirrored in the water, like an entrance to a dreamy parallel world. This body of work is an homage to the sublime. The awe and wonderment of that moment in nature that provides a peaceful and sacramental calm. That moment when we feel included in that wonderment.
“If I could evoke even just a spark of that in my paintings, it would bring me great joy.”
