So my name is Joey White and I’m a very pasty pale British white guy at uni overseas. So I was introducing myself and this guy from Nigeria goes “Hi, I’m Joseph” so I said, “I’m a Joseph too! Joseph White.” Then he looked me in the eye and said in a dead serious tone “I’m Joseph Brown” and we nearly died.

Jason de Graaf’s new acrylic painting titled “Parallel Lines That Never Meet” (shown above), definitely reminds me of Escher’s lithograph, “Hand with Reflecting Sphere.” Many of Graaf’s art pieces have a common characteristic of including reflective objects like Baoding balls, marbles, wine glasses and light bulbs. Each item displaying a room or an outdoor scene on its surface, which adds depth to the composition.
