    Descriptive info: Fran Bull: In Flanders Fields.. About the Artist.. Award-winning sculptor, painter and printmaker Fran Bull, has been exhibiting her work worldwide for over 30 years.. Her art is included in numerous museum and university collections, ranging from the Museum of Modern Art in New York, to the Guilin Museum in China.. She makes her art in Brandon, Vermont and Barcelona, Spain.. Bull�s early Photorealistic drawings and paintings brought her international acclaim, but in the mid 1980�s this more identifiable approach burst open.. She began to create work that could best be described as elaborate investigations of the unseen.. Today Bull s work seeks to connect ordinary life to larger mythic and historical motifs, themes and narratives.. Upcoming exhibitions include solo exhibitions of recent paintings, sculptural installations and etchings in Vermont and Chicago and group exhibitions of paintings and etchings in New York, Denver, Vermont, New Jersey and Chicago.. For more information visit.. www.. franbull.. com.. Artist Statement.. �My piece �In Flanders Fields�: an installation in  ...   magnificent planet�continue to engage in warfare mired in the delusion that we are thereby solving our human dilemmas.. The famous poem from World War I, �In Flanders Fields� written in the midst of �seventeen days of Hades� by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, forms the central image from which I draw my inspiration.. Dead soldiers lie buried in a field of poppies.. Larks fly overhead, singing, oblivious of gunfire.. Soon enough the fields will harbor just beneath the surface, an array of human bones.. The Lieutenant Colonel imagines the dead speaking.. They implore us to �take up our quarrel with the foe� in order that they may sleep for all time.. My piece takes issue with the poet, and with his assumption of the rightness of retribution and the implied glory of �winning�.. May we come to understand that the unrestrained mortification of human flesh known as War, is a shameful betrayal of who we are and all that we are.. � �Fran Bull, Vermont 2010..

Take up our quarrel with the foe:.. To you from failing hands we throw.. The torch; be yours to hold it high.. If ye break faith with us who die.. We shall not sleep, though poppies grow..

    Descriptive info: Karen Bondarchuk: Crow Magnus.. May 7 - July 1, 2010.. Karen Bondarchuk received her MFA in sculpture from The Ohio State University, and her BFA in sculpture and video from NSCAD University in Halifax, Canada.. She is Assistant Professor of Art at the Gwen Frostic School of Art at Western Michigan University.. Her artwork includes sculpture, kinetics, bookmaking, drawing, video and performance, and incorporates a wide array of materials from wool to scavenged tires to bagpipes.. Her current work explores the level of artificiality that defines our relationship with the wild, and the reality that most close encounters with wildlife are by human design.. Bondarchuk has exhibited and performed in the United States, Canada, Italy, and England, and her work is in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Canada and numerous private collections.. For more information visit:.. karenbondarchuk.. About the Work.. I have spent countless hours over the past several years driving the interstate highways in Michigan and the northeast.. Without realizing I had done so, I invented a game while driving: seeing a form on the side of the road in the distance, I would try to determine whether it was a dead tire or a dead animal.. I began to scavenge the sides of I-94 for any interesting detritus I could find (mainly tire scraps), and the crow eventually evolved from the material.. I have resided in Michigan for the past fifteen years, and have watched the automobile industry falter and expire.. The floor sculpture�.. Corvus Reductus.. �is a literal and symbolic manifestation of this deterioration.. The form of the crow was inspired purely by the morphology of the material, as I found the tire scraps reminiscent of feathers; additionally, I was inspired by the notion of using scavenged materials to create a scavenger (all of the materials in the  ...   Their scale, contrast and intensity command our attention (as birds in the corvid family so often do), while their presence en masse implies a conspiratorial air of these creatures watching us, perhaps even contemplating us, from their stark black frames.. With some of these drawings�.. Crow Magnus, Tempus Fugit.. and.. Talk Tok.. �letterforms and words fall like rain, jump like fleas and hover like vultures, suggesting a pervasive presence of human language.. Like the jabbering Cro-Magnon perched pet-like on the shoulder of the raven in.. Crow Magnus.. , �nature� in this work is entirely unnatural.. Having spent the last four years and countless hours observing birds generally (both in the wild and in captivity), and having fallen in love with corvids specifically�including the majestic ravens at the Tower of London, a cursing green-eyed jackdaw, a feisty imprinted blue jay that imitates meowing cats and door alarms, and Julian, the incredible talking raven (�who�s a good bird�)�I am increasingly aware of the extent to which these gregarious creatures have become co-conspirators in my work, and the degree to which I have allowed that to happen.. For now, I am attempting to follow their lead.. I am also keenly aware of my human limits in understanding these remarkably complex beings, the perils of anthropomorphizing and the futility of efforts to grasp the true essence of corvid-ness.. The crows and ravens in this body of work are ultimately and inevitably surrogates for human presences.. The intelligence, adaptability, humor, annoyance, unpredictability, persistence, mimicry, resourcefulness and deviousness of these birds, to mention but a few of their traits, rival the breadth of our human capacities, calling into question whether those qualities truly separate us from them in kind, or simply in magnitude..

    Descriptive info: Judithe Hernandez: What Dreams May Come.. March 5 - April 22, 2010.. Judithe Hern�ndez s career began in Los Angeles during the socially and politically turbulent 1960 s as one of the artists in the vanguard of the Chicano Art and Los Angeles Mural Movements.. Regarded as one of the leading visual artists of the period, she was also the only female member of the influential East Los Angeles artist collective known as Los Four who are widely credited with creating Chicano visual vocabulary during the 1970�s.. She has exhibited internationally; and her works are part of such major collections as: the Bank of America, the State of California, and  ...   her exhibition schedule will also include a major solo exhibition at the National Museum of Mexican Art and the inaugural exhibition of the new Vincent Price Art Museum in Los Angeles.. The trajectory of my career is not one that I could have consciously charted.. However, the one constant has been my belief that what I do has value and that my work brings a perspective to issues that would not otherwise exist.. For me, the creation of art has been a mysterious and wonderful journey.. I consider myself and what I do �works in progress� and I look forward to where my journey will take me next.. http://jhnartestudio.. com..

    Descriptive info: Pamela Callahan: This is My River.. Pamela Callahan was born and raised in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and received a B.. A.. in Studio Art from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI.. For fifteen years, Pamela lived and worked in the Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago and opened her studio for the annual Around the Coyote Arts Festival held there each fall.. In 2004, Pamela moved back to Wisconsin, where along the banks of Otter Creek, she is creating art full-time.. My paintings are about the convergence of the inner and outer worlds, the river that we all move through.. In the past, I painted things in an attempt to figure out why they baffled me.. I never painted the landscape  ...   is the crow, both talisman and protractor.. Its shape echoes the curves of the hills that surround the farm where I live and work.. The time spent here has allowed me to not only see the land, but to recognize its energy as my own and vice versa.. It is a vital exchange.. I also conjure inner landscapes, using paint to describe the terrain of the mind and soul, and how that topography reverberates in the physical world.. These multiple landscapes are meant to move beyond the borders of the paintings.. Some are out of square with kinks and waves, rendering edges especially fluid.. More and more, the paint leads the way and I follow.. pamelacallahan.. womanmade.. net..

    Descriptive info: Laurel Delaney: Myth - Illogical.. November 20 - December 23, 2009.. With Guest Artists Mary Jo O Hearn and Galen Garapolo.. About the Exhibition:.. What forces are at work in our perceived world that lie beyond our understanding? Scientific evidence of other dimensions and quarky particles mix and mingle within the soup of the worlds great myths and find their way into my art.. My Grandparents came from many lands, Italy, Hungary, Germany and Sweden! They held different religious and political beliefs.. They liked different foods! Sadly most of their myths were left behind save a few treasured holiday treats.. In the great post World War II melting pot that is America I was left to seek my own myths and find my own spiritual path.. So, I reach out through my art to touch the myths and spirit of others and weave them into my own belief system.. It is a joyful way to discover the missing threads of your psyche.. My abstract narratives weave a tale of the human condition.. My interests in mythology, psychology and the metaphysical are woven throughout my art.. The inspiration for my work springs from a deep intuitive empathy for that which lies beyond our grasp of the physiological and psychological experiences of  ...   simply by applying heat can be worked into again.. It suits my need for speed as well since it takes no drying time, just a short while to cool off.. I have just begun to explore the possibilities of welded and cast metal sculpture for public art works and love the magical change to the metal of both the heating and the patina processes.. About the Artist:.. Traveling and experiencing other cultures has had a major impact on Laurel Delaney�s art.. She studied Renaissance Art in Italy and ancient Mayan cultures and the influences of Spanish art in Mexico.. With her recent move to Arizona she has embarked upon a new series of work influenced by the many Native American tribes in the region.. She is an exhibiting artist and writer and volunteers in local art based out-reach programs.. Ms..

    Descriptive info: Beatrice Fisher: A Retrospective - 1939-2009.. October 16 - November 12, 2009.. Woman Made Gallery is pleased to present a retrospective solo exhibition by artist Beatrice Fisher.. This is Beatrice Fisher�s first solo show, although she has produced art for more than five decades.. Her most influential teachers were Don Baum and Karl Wirsum, and one can certainly see the Chicago Imagist tendencies take various incarnations throughout her work.. Her career spiked in the 1970�s when she enjoyed brief representation at the Phyllis Kind Gallery, and one of her paintings won a top award at the Chicago and Vicinity show, held at the Art Institute.. That painting, included in this retrospective, is of an 8 foot tall, cross-shaped structure whose crest resembles a penis.. The  ...   divorce, re-marriage and another child interrupted Fisher�s career, but not her art-making.. Throughout the next three decades she produced hundreds of paintings, drawings, and objects that include ready-mades, kites, and pillows.. There are numerous images that reoccur in paint, fabric, and glitter; among them are fetuses, penises, crosses, conjoined twins, couples engaged in sexual acts and camouflage patterns.. These works pay homage, not only to the Imagists, but to the Surrealists, Outsider Art and New Yorker cartoons.. Fisher writes,� My work evolves from psychological states and experiences that become externalized through the use of visual elements I encounter or research.. With a penchant for ambiguity and the absurd, I combine incongruous elements to suggest mysterious narratives and investigate themes of separation, love, and loss.. �..
