The ModFab Gallery: 3 A.M. From Kyoto Edition

PhotoBlog of the Week:
3 A.M. From Kyoto / "Displacement"

Stuart Lee tells ModFab that the photos at 3 A.M. From Kyoto are purely for his own enjoyment. "Simple as that really. If others get pleasure from them, then it makes me happy. (Clichéd I know, but there you are.)" But we think the color-drenched, avant-garde work on display belies a more accomplished artist than his modest statement implies. A native of Cambridge, UK, Stuart exhibits a mastery of shape, context and form like the best modernists, but also a fantasy underpinning that appears in his uses of visual texture and beyond-reality imaging. He'll be pleased to know that many of us get pleasure from them , too.
