In 1982, Lester's solo exhibition at the Charlotte Crosby Kemper Gallery signaled a huge transition."...(Realism) wasn't answering all the questions I had, and it wasn't drawing as much on the ideas and concepts I wanted to deal with. It wasn't giving me the freedom to move around in the way I wanted to. I did begin to change my visual language quite a bit in order to question the things that I could do through representation: embracing modes of abstraction or working away from nature or not using naturalistic source material as a way of defining form and learning to rely on my own form mechanics and invent space and symbols and everything else." Lester Goldman, Review, Summer 2005
It's a wonderful opportunity to walk into a room that houses the life's work's and investigations of one man. The Open House of Lester Goldman's paintings, sculptures and drawings held downtown on Saturday was a unique experience.
Hopefully the cataloging, preserving, and selling of Lester Goldman's work cements his legacy in Kansas City and will re-introduce his work to the country and art world.

Cleaning out my computer I found this video of my friend Clayton testing out one of my Stap-on Ballsacks. I've recently begun making some more specific ballsacks and plan to shoot some more contextual photos then before.
Update: Hopefully this video should work.
