presentation of her paintings, sculptures, multi-media and deep thoughts. It has to be experienced,
not just viewed through photographs!
ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL ARTIST IS CELEBRATED!
COME CELEBRATE THE PAINTED BURROS!
Here are some past shows.
Hayne first photographed mannequins in Detroit in the early 1990’s. Then, last spring she discovered a collection of mannequins in Tulsa, OK, reigniting her interest in them. She then traveled to New York City to photograph at mannequin companies in the Fashion District and at a Brooklyn warehouse.
About her exhibit, Hayne states: “We are losing our humanity. In this day of electronic devices we are being re-programmed. Look at the movies, our culture. Even the Barbie doll is being programmed to have conversations with your child. “The mannequins represent how we are merging with our machines. I’m fascinated by their dramatic presence. Even the less realistic models have a human-like quality. The mannequins take on a life of their own.”
Sherry Hayne is an award-winning artist who has been exhibiting her photographs internationally since 1990. Two of her photographs of White Sands National Monument were selected for the El Paso Museum/Museo de Arte de Ciudad Juarez Art Binational 2008. In 2011-2012, she was invited to participate in a portfolio of the Mission San Antonio de Padua in Jolon, CA. In conjunction with that portfolio, her work is now included in the collection of the National Steinbeck Center, Salinas, CA. Last summer, she won an award at the Deming Fine Art Photography exhibit and two awards at the 32nd Annual Roswell International Juried Art Show at the Roswell Museum & Art Center. Hayne is a fellow of the MacDowell Colony, an internationally renowned artist colony located in Peterborough, New Hampshire, where she was an artist-in-residence in 1997 and 1999. Originally trained as a metalsmith, Hayne has been making photographs since 1989. A Michigan native, she currently resides in Carrizozo. Her work is included in numerous private collections.
“Myth opens the world to the dimension of mystery, to the realization
of the mystery that underlies all forms...”
The REMAINS Exhibit presents sculptures and paintings that talk of Ancient times,
where dreams were manifested like the waves of our primordial sea.
The Sirens emerge from those waters, symbolizing a connection between the Earth and the Heavens.
Their wings enable them to carry Mortals to the Underworld.
The world of the Sirens, Pre Columbian Mayans, Easter Island and the
Roman and Greek Mythology are part of our universal History.
This Exhibit is just a glimpse into our cultural richness as human beings on this planet.
Mother Earth or Pachamama embraces this diversity.
I thank the stones for their natural beauty.
They are my guides and providers for many messages that are food for my soul.
“Myth and Dreams come from realizations of some kind that have then
to find expression in symbolic form...”
Quote by Joseph Campbell
“Lines and Circles” January-February 2015
408 Gallery, Carrizozo, NM
“Lines and Circles” is a new series of paintings By Douglas Stanton.
Stanton continues to recycle his paintings into new artworks. He has used
images from his previous paintings, which are enlarged and cropped, to
create backgrounds for the “Lines and Circles” work. The background
images are printed on photo canvas which is then mounted on an
aluminum backing. The abstract photo image is then over-painted with
acrylic and ink markers using lines and circles as a motif.
The work attempts to marry photo technology with painting.
The flat background is contrasted with the over-painting on “top.”
Also on exhibit are three mono prints which used paintings from Stanton's
“Small Abstraction” series as a basis for creating the prints. Again, Stanton
uses previous work to generate new images which echo the work that preceded it.
In addition three black-and-white paintings from the “Square Abstractions” series will be shown.
