Ginny Herzog


Ginny HerzogThe use of architectural imagery in my art has always been intriguing to me. My previous career in interior design; working with floor plans, elevation drawings and presentation layouts, combining colors, textures and materials has no doubt influenced this direction of my work

Much of the enjoyment I receive from my work comes from witnessing the response of the viewer. Marketing my own work often gives me the opportunity to experience first hand their similar reactions. Originally, the bold color fields and the strong geometric compositions draw the viewer to the work from a distance. They then notice the architectural detail that is almost hidden within the composition. Realizing that much of the detail has no consistent orientation or scale, they tilt their heads side ways, in both directions, to read the compositions from different vantagepoints. The works often engage the viewer for several minutes as they try to decipher the nearly concealed elements. Keeping the viewer off balance as they scan my work provides me with creative energy in continuing my artistic journey.
