Bokeh, the exhibit title of Fort Worth artist, Juan Velazquez’ current show refers to the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image. Velazquez explores and capitalizes on this technique in order to draw our attention to the detail in his subject. He uses traditional fundamental oil methods married with modern photographic influences, while also playing with the contrast between black-and-white backgrounds with a brightly colored subject for emphasis.
The exhibit will be on display at Elm Street Studio in Keller from October 31 to December 21. Everyone is encouraged to attend a complimentary reception with the artist on Friday, November 16th from 6 to 8pm – Artist’s remarks at 7pm.
