Exhibition Title: Hawaiiana Apothesis.

Joseph Ruesing has lived in Hilo for twenty years. He has a master's degree in linguistics from Queen's College in NYC, as well as an MBA, BA in English Literature, a minor in Fine Art, and a degree from Yonsei University's language institute in Korea.

With the advent of digital, Mr. Ruesing found a medium especially suited to his interests and has spent the past seven years creating digital imagery.

“For this exhibition, 'Hawaiiana Apotheosis' my intention is to glorify the commonplace, familiar surroundings of Hawaii. Though abstract, these images will have meaning for anyone who has ever imagined a broom to be a horse.”

I, digital artist, monitoring images more un-solid than Einstein's atom-stuffed chair.

A monkey with a predicate adjective, yet finding a space for the unbeautiful. A refrigeration specialist freezing light and time in unused spaces, secret clubhouse places.

Squishing pixels, interpreting digital entrails – success measured in dollars, the universal pigment.

Navigating by stars uncharted, drawn to scale by unknown psychic forces, finding a safe warm puka to stay. The puka and the un-puka explains everything. Almost. Except the path that leads to nowhere . . . good luck!

The Great Warrior, known for watching . . . a summer's day in 1948.
