“Come Hither”
Constructions – Performance – Painting

Artformz is pleased to present the work of artists Natasha Duwin, Donna Haynes, and Mary Larsen. Storytelling has always played a role in art, whether through words or images. The three artists collaborating for the Artformz October exhibition encourage the public to join them in a visual experience of stories and journeys. Natasha Duwin will exhibit sculptural and wall objects. Duwin also brings a special Opening Night performance that is a surprising and poetic addition to her renowned work exploring the construction of the female identity, using mediums that have long been relegated to the worlds of labor and craft, such as embroidery and textiles. Artist Donna Haynes will show new pieces from her ongoing series of fantastic multimedia constructions. Her work will combine text and preserved imagery, expressing visual narratives that result in a unique sharing of personal journeys. One of the new members of the gallery, artist Mary Larsen, will exhibit newly created works on canvas. Larsen uses books and printed text as part of her mixed media paintings. The rich surfaces play with light, tecture, and color, creating an illusion of an ethereal world of dreams, not quite recalled.

These are interconnecting visual stories not to be told but to be experienced; worlds of despair and chaos intertwined with hope and light.

Exhibition Dates October 2 – October 30, 2010
