Review from San Francisco Bay Times on Visual Aid auction excerpt:
…… Joseph Abbati’s “Apollo Is Viewed from the Cupola” is a 76 X 56” cotton tapestry that has been woven using the pointillism technique (or to be more modern, in pixels). If you stand back, it appears that a statue of the Greek god of prophecy, music, and healing is peering down through the glassed rooftop at the viewer below. When you get up close, you can see each tiny, differently colored dot making up the highly detailed picture.
DQtrs has contributed to Visual Aid’s Live Art Auction to be held April 28, 2011, 6:30-9pm. The auction is at Chronicle Books, 680 Second St., San Francisco. Come out to support and buy some great art!
