Why These Galleries Exist
Larry Alan Iversen
The purpose of these
galleries is to interest you in the work that I do.
My constant goal as an artist is to seek out new
projects, new work, new collaborations, and new
opportunities. I've created these galleries to communicate
an impression of what it is that I do, and to foster
interest in my existing work, and possibilities yet to be
created. Such interest could take many forms. You may be
interested in a physical rendition of something you see here. You may be interested
in sharing this work with others. Or you may find the way I
go about my work suitable to some as-yet unrealized new
project. In any of these cases, it would be my pleasure
to discuss my work with you further. To contact me, click here or anywhere you see my name on
This site is not
a distribution platform.
The web is not a suitable substitute for physical
rendition. While computers are often exceptional image
projectors, they are just as often not. They may be old,
of poor quality, badly placed, or out of calibration.
Even the best computers may not agree with one another as
to how to render an image.
For this reason, I
can't put a rendition on a website and have any real
expectation that the experience you will get from it will
be anything like the one I intend (or hope for, or at
least imagine). The web is simply not a good enough
medium for aesthetic experience. Therefore, I do not consider what you see here to be "my art." It is an idea of what I do. The web excels as a medium for communicating ideas, and that is the use to which I put it here.

are viewing this site on a Mac, be advised that the gamma
of the gallery images is calibrated to the Windows
standard, and the images may appear brighter to you than
I intend. Furthermore, if you are viewing this gallery on
a computer that is limited to 256 colors (as is the
case with many older computers, especially laptops), you
will not get a very good impression of this gallery
at all. Other factors may also effect your viewing
Some images may not
be considered work safe.
I attempt to create images that are challenging.
Sometimes they are lyrical, sometimes shocking, sometimes
downright inscrutable. I do not seek to offend gratuitously, and in fact I consider every image I have ever
created to be a celebration of something beautiful.
However, you should be advised that I create work with
complete disregard for routine corporate standards of
