Heritage Habitats by Ginger Owen-Murakami and Vicki Vanameyden

Heritage Habitats by Ginger Owen-Murakami and Vicki Vanameyden

The Artist writes; "Heritage Habitats is a series of physical spaces for contemplation and invocation of ancestry. Framed around nostalgia and memory, these large scale, sculptural and experiential installations emphasize commonalities that bind people and cultures and serve as an expression of humanism. The installations explore collective memories through vernacular photography and the act of pursuing one’s history as a universal human experience."

Elements by Greg Gregson

Elements by Greg Gregson

My constant search and desire is to create objects which will inspire myself and others to use memories or imagination for interpretation of a dreamlike Still Life. Composition is an important element for me since it creates either static or a dynamic feel to each piece, as well as space to object ratio. Contrary to most Still Life masters, I have tried to remove a time frame from the equation so it doesn’t project a precise historical period for each piece but rather has a timeless feel to it. In some instances, I describe each object using the Cyrillic alphabet. This depicts what they are, or at least what I want people to perceive they are, and as each object is analyzed, it might appear to be something else or quite opposite.

The Impossible Replication By the Art Club, UW-Madison

The Impossible Replication By the Art Club, UW-Madison

 

Sixteen student artists attempt to capture Lee Herrick's poem, The Impossible Replication of Desire, in their own original works. This is the Fall 2018 Semester Project for members of the Art Club - a RSO of UW-Madison with the mission to encourage students of all skill levels to create and explore new artwork.

 

The Impossible Replication of Desire by Lee Herrick

 

How much delight before we collapse 

How much earth in the lungs

How much wine 

 

When we want more

When the weeds sprawl

It is not what you think

 

Think how fast some landscapes change

the lover, the gardener's grand idea,

the failing Maple

 

the boat about to capsize

the correction

the hand's reflection

 

the impossible replication of weight

versus time

how it will never mean what you want
