The Marion Peck Show at Billy Shire Fine Arts Gallery
As usual it's taken me more than a week to finally post this, but the show is still going. Great show too. If you can get over to Billy Shire Fine Arts in Culver City you should see the show. Many people will compare Marion Peck's work to her boyfriend Mark Ryden's work for obvious reasons, but I see many differences between them. She is undeniably in the "Ryden" zone though. But her paintings have a very "French" quality to them. They are very flowery and ornate and rich to look at. Her work has a very aristocratic quality to every stroke. And like Mark her work is just inspiring to take in. It's an event for sure. So here are some of my usual blurry shots. Someday I will learn how to take a sharper picture, but some of these aren't so awful. I hope they respect the art.
