Every month Gallery Insights showcases the unique work of artists with Maine connections.
February’s exhibit showcases some of the work of INSIGHTS highlighted Gallery artists.
Professor Takafumi Suzuki, also known as Yohaku Yorozuya, has had multiple exhibits over his forty year career as a photographic artist. He is renowned for his use of classic darkroom techniques spending days perfecting his images.
Ramona du Houx uses the camera with a painter’s eye. The technique she discovered back in 1979, in New York, uses movement to create a sense of wonder through colors, textures, memories, and the seasons. Everything within the photographic viewfinder becomes visibly interconnected when objects merge with the motion of the camera as the image, the “lightgraph,” is taken.
Jeremy Frey is known for creating beautiful works with innovative texture and use of materials that continue styles and forms passed down through generations of Wabanaki and Passamaquoddy artists.
Jos Ruks, from the Netherlands, is fascinated by sails and the natural world. He captures the wind’s motion in paper sails, kites, and mobiles. Some of his mobiles are powered by solar electricity and dance above visitors in the gallery as their lights turn on. In the stillness of some of his set pieces there is always the sense of motion and emotion, which captivates. His maps and historical perspectives convey the mystery of time.
