Magic Magnetism...

A friend of mine from college named Francesca Strada recently started a blog called, Magic Magnetism. Her paintings are the main focus and the blog acts as an archive of her imagery. Immersed in murky shadows with flares of bright colors, her work depicts borderline abstract, psychological landscapes. The viewer is moved through dark, half-remembered vistas and forlorn cityscapes. As in her paintings, "Where we used to roam" (shown above and to the right) and "Tunnel Proposal", vibrant colors mark sparks of life and form the most solid shapes. These are her visual touchstones, admitting entrance to her quiet places.

I loved Night Vision TV and very much liked several others. Very calming work.
