Martos Gallery is pleased to present Chameleon Jeans a solo exhibition of works by Leif Ritchey.
Walking around walking the dog
I come across things in my path
Colors are colors and objects are objects
They dance together make music- a jam
I listen to the music and lose myself in it dance along
Live it colors and forms find alchemy unknown
