An exhibition by Frederick Ballet, Len DeLuca, and Joseph O’Neill

A photograph is supposed to tell a story, while true in a classical sense, that is not the goal of this exhibition. Rather the artists want the viewer to discard stereotypes and focus on the emotional impact of the image. Abstraction allows the viewer to delve into the subconscious and spark imagination. Each artist approaches this differently. Joe O’Neil uses color and geometric form taking inspiration from the buildings in Manhattan, Len DeLuca walks through the city and is drawn to wall posters with their shredded layers, colors and shapes creating unique abstract imagery, while Frederick Ballet uses the natural world to balance reality with abstraction to leave the viewer with a meditative sense of beauty, peace and timelessness.

No matter the composition, the artists wish to challenge the viewer to see the world in a new light, be it through metaphor, absurdity or beauty and delve deeper into their emotions.
