Bohemian Press

Bohemian Press

When I began walking through the Bohemian Press Exhibit, I was hard for me not to miss the giant tentacles that were attacking the surface of Paula Marty’s art series, “Space Invasion?. When first looking at it, I suppose these alien appendages where obviously the first thing that captured my eye; they shot out of the symmetrical black and white landscapes and ravaged the entire piece.
The second thing I focused on, was Marty’s ability to take black to an extreme level of darkness. Even more incredible was how she was able to make her white imprints so clean cut. You would expect there to be some flaw bordering that stark black background – perhaps a small stray sketch of white – but every line, shape, and curve set against the black surface – that I could see – was perfectly cut. Even small dots and scratches seemed strategically placed.
This piece is a must see for science fiction lovers and perfectionists alike.
