Piece description from the artist
A unique composition of the Greek Orthodox Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Church Calendar begins on September 1st and ends on August 31st. Each day is sacred for the Orthodox Christian. The Church venerates at least one saint or sacred event in the life of the Church every day of the year.
Using photography composed of strong architectural elements (organic and man-made), Ari David Rosenthal creates “re-imaginings” of his traditional fine art photography that reach far beyond the original image capture. Through a synthesis and application of dimension, saturation, and texture, Rosenthal’s newest pieces pop with dynamic fluidity.
A native of Milwaukee, WI, Rosenthal holds a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and an M.B.A. from the University of Minnesota. During the 1980s and 90s, he, a talented musician, played sax, flute, and EWI in various bands within the Milwaukee, Madison, and Minneapolis areas. In 2003, he returned home from Los Angeles and created OzMoses – a design, video, music, and marketing company. In 2004, OzMoses shifted heavily towards photography and videography and, in 2008, became Ari Rosenthal Photography.
