Kris Parins
Let the Good Times Roll
I am inspired when an ordinary scene or object is somehow transformed into something glorious and wonderful. Maybe it's a striking combination of colors or textures, or a compelling pattern of contrasts. It could be the relationship of a person to nature. Most often it's the effect of sunlight, deepening a color here, making an edge disappear there, that motivates me to paint.

Color surrounds me and excites me on all levels and I find infinite inspiration from observing Nature in all her seasonal wardrobes.

Herring Smokehouse, Low Tide
"As artists, there's a reason why we paint the landscape and not the figure, still life or some other subject. It's the landscape that feeds our creative fire. Thankful for its inspiration, we are eager to see that it, in turn, gets taken care of. And our best way of making sure it gets the care it so richly deserves is this: To put our representations of it on display for all the world to see. Our hope is that our paintings will
encourage others to become stewards of the land, just as we have become its promoters."

ŅMore and more I realize how much my rural background influences my work. In the beginning painting was a way for me to preserve those childhood memories, as monuments or icons in my life.

environment that persuades me to keep drawing..painting to keep trying to re-create the perfect moment."

Mother Of Us All
Nature is fascinating in so many ways: evolution, adaptation, and change are intricate parts of an ever-changing world. I am interested in transformation in nature, moments of deep cataclysmic shifts, moments of superb energy release. I am interested in the very special instants when a balance is broken or shifted, an existing equilibrium is changed and transformation occurs. More and more, humans
are influencing some shifts in nature.

Fran Forman
Hovering Child
With a background in psychology, design, and photography, I make photographic images combining portraiture with dreamed landscapes and the natural world. As my work creates juxtapositions in time, it also re-imagines relationships of scale and physical possibility. My images create an inclusiveness that is wistful yet ironic. Children and adults, anonymous and forgotten, appear as honored guests. Although my images
violate the laws of physics, they honor the interdependence and connections of humanity
with the animals, insects, and plants, which populate the natural world.

Waiting
I am a multi-media visual artist. The subject matter of my abstracted images are the human figure and prairie landscape. How one experiences objects in space and over a period of time is a consistent theme in this innovative work. A unique fragmentation of shapes and lines results from a process of layering,
distortion and abstraction of paint, charcoal and textiles. The dynamic works are defined
by the media and the energetic mark-making.

The landscape is a universal symbolic image, thick with narration and metaphor, which is why

becomes an even more poignant image to work with.

Painting is my way of understanding the natural world and the human made world, of sharpening my focus. On one day, Science may take precedence, on another, visual reality. On occasion, metaphor becomes prime, at other times a fascination with patterning or the interaction between humans and nature directs my work. Occasionally the seduction of the paint is irresistible, or I fall under the spell of color sequence.

In each artwork there may be one medium, two or many media combined in one piece. Inspiration comes from the inside based on my personal distillation of the external world.

and pattern. Each pot is a one-of-a-kind hand crafted work of art.

Three Pots
ŅI have always been drawn to ways of working that have allowed for discovery, surprise, failure and redemption. I find my images in the layers of paint, discover the form as my hands touch the clay, surrender to the vagaries of the fire. Each work comes to me, not as an answer, but as another question. The longer I
make art, the more I realize itÕs not about mastery or control. What remains is an ongoing dialog between the artist and his art. One must listen as well as speak."

The Ring of Fire
I don't know when the urge to create began. It has always been there from earliest memory. It started with painting and drawing, but once I discovered sculpture and particularly clay, over twenty years ago,
I was totally obsessed. There is a prose poem by Byrd Baylor that states, "Clay remembers
the hands that made it." I love the fact that you connect directly with the clay with your fingers
and it responds like a living thing. Although many images inspire me and I sculpt a
variety of subjects, the image of the horse and women's stories are my passion.

Leaving Normal
I have had an ongoing interest in the physical and aesthetic possibilities inherent in many materials. Never subservient to one technique, I have explored and exploited methods and mediums with an eye for discovery and expediency. Although my sculptural intentions have changed over the years, my interest in how process shapes and informs the work has remained constant. I have never really thought of any one piece as being "about" something, but rather a "result" of experiences, observations, and information.

Of Cronin's work, New York art critic John Mendelsohn writes: "Cronin's figures are animated by a fluid energy, the artist's light touch, that gives them a fleeting sense of movement. These animals and humans are acutely observed and deftly depicted, with an emphasis on bodily gestures. The humor which pervades Cronin's work arises from her clearly observing humankind's foibles and then reflecting them back to us with wit and affection." Indeed Cronin's work effuses a liveliness created through her talent
for sculptural naturalism and her smart sense of humor.

One of the major problems Webb encountered in his quest for homosexual imagery was how to formulate

The solution lay in Giovanni Domenico TiepoloÕs Punchinello frescoes in Palazzo Rezzonico in Venice, which Webb first saw in 1989.
