The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts is pleased to present Therman Statom's Nascita, an ambitious exhibition comprised of a multitude of site-specific glass and mixed-media sculptures. For over twenty-five years, Statom has revolutionized the glass medium, creating installations of an architectural scale that reward the viewer's imagination and sense of wonder.
Four elements dominate the visual terrain of Therman Statom's Nascita, or "Origin:" a 50-foot glass frieze, a freestanding glass room, a 30-foot mirror-scaled snake and multiple mirrorized architectural fixtures. Statom utilized commercial panes of glass, silicon, mirror and paint as his primary materials to create a stylized and expressive environment that sprawls throughout the gallery. His bold forms brim with symbols such as maps, vessels, foliage and snakes that are rooted in art history and personal references. The artist creates glass box "paintings" that house a myriad of painted images as well as eclectic objects suggesting an open-ended narrative filled with surprising juxtapositions. Although Statom precisely planned and prefabricated certain aspects of the exhibition, he also improvised throughout the installation process and will reconfigure the exhibition at multiple points during its run. Statom approaches the gallery space as a studio and laboratory and encourages viewers to join his process of discovery.

Delos Van Earl Sculpture welcomes visitors!
Swooping in and out of the ground, "Jungle Red" is a serpentine-esque sculpture that now welcomes the public to the Warm Sands neighborhood in Palm Springs. It's named for the "Jungle Red" nail polish color made famous in the 1939 Joan Crawford film "The Women". Van Earl said he hopes the sculpture, which looks like a snake curling in and out of the gravel, will be something tourists will stop to take a picture with on the way to their Warm Sands hotels. "It will be a landmark piece," he said as his assistant David Hale applied brick red primer paint. Last summer, the City Council approved the sculpture. It's location in the center of a round-a-bout on Ramon Road and Warm Sands Drive means "Jungle Red" will have high visibility.
