Closes: June 15th, 2016
"Magicians come to us in two ways. The kinds that are conjurers, who create an illusion with skilled tricks and the kind that are teachers who let us understand real magic. The kind of magic that is around us every day if we only open our senses to it. The beauty of getting older for me, is that I’ve gotten more and more attuned to the latter kind of magic. I am exploring deeper every day and night into its mysteries.
At present, I continue with my interest in the human figure and the attributes that surround it. These attributes reflect something about the being without giving a specific narrative. Ideas about life and death, sensuality, sexuality, nature, experiences in the realm of dreams, psyche and spirit are my ongoing topic. A lot of inspiration for these pieces stem from my ongoing love for the art of the European Masters, Early American Folk Art, as well as vintage and modern photography." --Ann Siems
