Just Another Day

We have all taken pictures and portraits of people for a variety of reasons: for family, or vacation, for work or for play. Many times we glance at the captured image and then file it away in an album or somewhere on social media. We rarely look at it again. But why is that? Are the captured memories too painful? Or is it that they were just recorded memories of a fleeting emotion, or perhaps out of boredom? I try to explore this reaction with my new, ongoing series.

What people are saying about Jerry’s art…

I remember the day when Jerry Grasso lit up. He understood that not only could he become more creative but he was already much more creative than he thought he was. Hard work produces grace, not miracles. Since then, Jerry’s followed through on his creative life with passion and commitment. It’s been delightful to see his work grow and be celebrated in exhibitions and publications.

When we review submissions here, we either know we want to publish something, or we know we don’t want to publish something. And every once in a while we look at a body of work and just go “wow!” This is fabulous. That was the case with yours. We instantly knew we wanted to publish it…We are also delighted to include one of your images on the [issue #115] cover!

The visual artistry of Jerry Grasso caught my attention ten years ago. I bought an image and then a book. The creative energy that continues to drive his aesthetic development is fascinating. His images have cycled through periods of abstraction and stark realism, but always maintain an optical complexity. They engage the eye with a physical presence as art objects but also trigger moods and emotions in the mirror of imagination.

Jerry has been one of my most dedicated students; he is open to learning new approaches, accepted criticism and progressed exponentially. Jerry  followed through with exceptional commitment to all projects he was given, and as a result, has fine tuned his talent and now produces such high quality of work that he was accepted by LensWork magazine.

I appreciate what you [say] about finding your inner child, being imaginative, and not seeing everything in black & white.  You talk about people seeing your work in galleries but then not being able to describe what they saw, and I realized I'm guilty of those things, too.  I don't always know how to view art, and I don't look at [your art] deeply enough to really "see" it, if that makes any sense. Once I really looked at it deeply, it definitely helped me to appreciate the extreme detail of the architecture. It really did force me to slow down and LOOK at them. I enjoyed that very much.
