At this past Thursday’s gallery opening of artist Jamie Martinez’s solo show “Hunt for Inspiration”, cell phone cameras were out in full force as the weapon of choice in order to really see the work in a truly interactive, energized experience. As the viewer looks at each individual piece of work, expertly curated by Oscar A. Laluyan, an abstract host of triangles greets you. As we are instructed to do via a message plaque on the wall, the viewer sees the work through a camera, preferably a phone camera. This results in a litany of surprising A- HA moments and magically an image comes into focus – a mountain cat, a wolf, Medusa’s visage jump out, then the collective OHHHHS! ring out.
