KALEID Gallery is proud to present:
“Ethereal Sea” by Jeff Bramschreiber
The idea for this series of paintings came to me early last year. I love the sea, and many of my “Two Buck Tuesday” (at KALEID) creations are related to the ocean in one way or another. Last year I was visiting Pajaro Dunes in Monterey a favorite place for recharging the gray cells, relaxing and getting re-focused and inspired. This visit though something was off; for the first time instead of a sense of calm and healing it felt like the coast needed my energy somehow. It really startled me, and then I started realizing that those exciting one on one encounters with wildlife at and in the sea were becoming far less frequent, that everyday a little more was lost. I got the idea that if I could capture those encounters using color in a way that focuses the isolation, the fragility of those moments, that maybe I could, in my own way, show that to others.
