Lahaina Arts Society featuring show by Marty Wolff
LAHAINA – Marty Wolff will present his photographic fine art on metal in the Old Jail Gallery of Lahaina Arts Society through Nov. 30.
There will be a mix of Maui marine and land images as well as scenes from his European travels.
His humpback whale photos are featured in Maui Whalewatch magazine. For information on when Wolff will be at the gallery, phone 661-0111.
A Bronx-born Baby Boomer, Wolff now resides in Maui. Along the way, he spent time based out of Boulder, Colorado, then Los Angeles.
He studied photography and design at New York City’s New School briefly, but the bulk of his learning has been through experience.
Building upon the idea that “the world and its people are quite different from the way they appear,” Wolff applied his art to the creation of psychedelic light shows.
Through the late 1970s and into the ’80s, he traveled the world as a rock and roll concert producer, lighting/stage designer and artist’s manager.
His work with the light shows, then stage lighting design, lent heavily to his style of ever-changing movement on stage.
His experience and ideas about altered states of perception lead directly to many of his creations.
Believing that “beyond the appearance of the initial image is the seed of a different truth,” he searches for a more mysterious image.
Occasionally, he said he finds himself conscious that his soul is at one with the universe, moment by moment. These are the moments of creation.
