Area Voices: Lou Ferreri, Artist

Lou Ferreri is a mixed media visual artist whose 120 piece show is currently on display at the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji.  His exhibit, "The Internal Affairs of Mr. Invincible" is an extensive collection of intricate, elaborate doodles created on the editorial sections of the New York Times.  Twenty five of those works have an accompanying essay gifting the viewer with even more depth, context and understanding to those associated pieces.  All of the works are chock-full of a unique balance of symbolism and relatable images as well as whimsy and gravity.  The twenty five with accompanying writings are collected and displayed in the book, "The Internal Affairs of Mr. Invincible."

In this segment of Area Voices, Lou Ferreri discusses how this show came to be and how his style has morphed throughout his career.

Lou will give an artist talk at the Watermark Art Center June 21 at 6:30pm in Bemidji!
