DIALOGUES FROM THE FOREST: Part 3

 

 

The final exhibition of the Dialogues from the Forest series explores and honors the natural resources of the Northwest landscape.  These artists transform their explorations into personal statements of celebration and genuine concern.

 

 

FROM ROCKY OUTCROPPINGS:
Jean Behnke
Michael Peterson
Peter de Lory
“It appears that somewhere between my intention and lack of it an authentic art can reveal itself.” Behnke
“My organic abstract work in wood has always been grounded in the natural world and has come to evolve out of the process of making and develops its own logic.  There are few absolutes.” Peterson
“I am interested in how humans relate to and alter the places where we live, whether it is the wilderness or urban landscape.” de Lory

 

ARBOREAL BEAUTY: Kathy Gore Fuss
“Every character in the forest is connected to the whole.  We form a complex, integrated organism, and, when I paint, I try to capture some of that feeling, beauty and energy.”

 

BURNT: Lee Imonen
“Have you every wondered how everyday objects are made? This series of sculptures puts into visual form our dependence on natural materials, and our need to balance our consumption of these resources.”
