I’ve always strived for multiple layers of complexity in my work. The disguise of intent keeps people guessing. This show has references to WWI ship camouflage as well as other convolutions. ” – Richard Marquis

In dog years Richard Marquis has been working in glass for over three centuries. In that time he’s worn out four dogs and is working on his fifth. Also in that time he’s created a weird and varied body of work, a portion of which is in important public and private collections. Eschewing publicity, he works quietly and haphazardly in his shop somewhere in the Northwest.  

[NB the show is on at the Bullseye Gallery, Portland , Oregon. So if you’re Oz-side, don’t get too antsy about missing the opening. n(Ed)]

Given that Dick and Klaus are about to share gallery space in Sante Fe, there’s gunna be some heavy duty visual dialogue blasting across them thar bows. How amazement. When we first saw the image without captions we thought the Klaus Meister had taken off on some weird tangent. But no, it was Dick being…provocative?

Maybe collectors can buy a boxed set. (Heh, heh, heh.)
