"Nuvo Japonica" Series

This series was created in 1989. The initial catalyst for this series was the changing of the chip market for computers. Back in the 80s the economic war strained relations between the super powers of Japan and the United States. It was for this reason that GARTEL decided to blend the cultures of Traditional Japanese imagery and American Iconography. The final photographic prints were exhibited at the Joan Whitney Payson Museum in Portland, Maine. These works were shown immediately after the sale of their most prestigious Impressionist painting, Van Gogh's "Irises." Museum director Judith Sobol was pleased to present this work as an enrichment and confirmed that the works of GARTEL were as innovative and important as the Impressionists of their time.
