Lewis Anderson accurately describes his art as being somewhere between photography and painting, somewhere between East and West, somewhere between contemporary and ancient. The images invite the viewer to explore quiet moments in diverse, invented landscapes full of light and shadow and symbology that emanate a strong sense of peace, solitude and mystery.

James Hutchinson‘s intuitive landscape’s are inspired by Chinese landscape work of the 10th-15th centuries. The compressed space and obsessive lines give the impression of topographic maps yet glimpses of sky and distant mountains brings you back to a sense of environment, though not one that is familiar. These landscapes have the feel of fantasy.

Marly Eidsness‘s wire mesh sculptures of birds assembled into shapes and poses we recognize as the majestic great blue heron or the mischievous raven. The birds appear shiny and reflective in direct light and in contrast, with back lighting, the layers and (intentionally) mysterious interiors of the birds are revealed.  As lighting changes throughout the day, the birds appear to change.
