PRESS RELEASE

WHO Trompe Loeil Society of Artists:

WHAT paintings in oil on panel, canvas and paper
WHEN March 1 - 28, 2002
Opening Reception Friday March 1, 5-7 PM, Santa Fe

We are very pleased to announce the opening of an exhibit of Americas most accomplished trompe loeil artists. The Trompe Loeil Society of Artists was formed to showcase the paintings of contemporary masters of the genre. The exhibit will feature paintings by its members: Larry Charles, Donald Clapper, Eric Conklin, Gerald Hodge, Michael Molnar, Gayle B. Tate, and Gregory West.

The art form of trompe loeil distinguishes itself from other forms of realist painting by its intent to deceive. With the use of perfect perspective and clearly observed light, described with realistic colors, the trick is to make the onlooker believe that a surface is not flat, or that a space exists where there is no space. Translated from the French, trompe loeil means "trick the eye". These seven painters have taken the art form to its extreme in excellence and accomplishment. Still life subject matter includes hyper-realistic images of taped paper objects, currencies, chalkboards, stamps, and old photographs - perfect three dimensional images to the eye and remarkable two dimensional realities to the touch.
