Mind Gardens and Women Who Know

December 15th, 2017 - January 31st, 2018

Gallery Walk December 29th, 5-8pm

 

Mind Gardens follows layered dreams, relationships, alternate personalities, desires, frustrations, seductions, and suggestions as they gestate, grow, evolve, reflect, and affect the psychological world roiling inside of our human heads. In my current artworks, tiny feet and legs trek around in obscure, neutral landscapes – toting male, female, and gender neutral maskheads - that are out of scale to their lower appendages. Unknown figures disappear inside of private worlds where they can exist freely, and wander about without the viewer knowing – or even needing to know - who these people really are, what they are really doing, or where they might be going.

 

On the path of Women Who Know, I continue to be affected by ongoing discussions related to political, social, and gender issues. Non specific personalities of semi-abstract and alternately constructed women inhabit complex mental spaces, stand proudly on stages, and exist in worlds where the scale and color and texture of their existence might suggest pride, knowledge, intelligence, boldness, security, and comfort in their own choices of how to participate in the world. -Excerpt from artist statement

Fauna Mori

December 15th, 2017 -January 31st, 2018

Gallery Walk December 29th, 5-8pm

 

Fauna Mori provides an irreverent look at the fleeting nature of life through the ancient art of taxidermy. Drawn from the medieval theory of memento mori, vintage tapestries serve as remembered experiences and highlight the futility and vanity of preserving the ephemeral.

 

"As a visual artist, I express my worldview through the creation of objects, bringing my personal observations into three dimensions. Transforming these internal ruminations into sculpture is at the core of my art practice. Driven by creative content and drawing from many sculptural materials and disciplines, I strive to produce visually compelling and thought-provoking works of art."
