New Series - Fauve

Governor's Palace exhibit July 28 - August 23 2009, featuring the art of Maryva Mayo - Sledge Roffo - Layachi Ihnen - Ragamuffin Kips.
This series sculpture uses a texture I made with pastels and then uploaded. The combined use of geometric and organic shapes provided some new looking images and colors that are subtle, rather than bold.
Also included in the exhibit is the series, "Lexicon".
Cat Shilova was there to help with some French translating.

God Concepts and Religion

I expect this will be primarily a representational art show with many figurative works dotted by recognizable symbols with lots of angst. If you want to see some historical religious art in real life be sure to see Michelangelo's Dante's Inferno and Rodin's Gates of Hell and the Gates of Paradise in Florence. This will be a challenge for me since I am a Deist and an abstract artist. I won't miss the show even if I don't enter anything. God is dead to me.
