CLAIRE ELAN
   ILLUMINATION IN FLUX

With imagination, belief, creative will, a person's light can be a concrete connecting thread that is indestructible and enduring. Whether we feel inspiration directly from the universe or through a writer, painter or prophet, it is all the same light and binds us to each other as one whole. Just as a star in the galaxy still shines its billion year old light on us here on earth after it has long gone, past lives' energies endure & continue to eternally inspire us. The marks we make, the lives we help and the energy we put into this life will affect generations ahead as we wander through the light & shadows of the lives that went before us - this is how we are eternal.

STEVEN WEBB   PARALLELS

The latest series 'Parallels' emphasizes abstraction, adhering to the notion
of correlation / symmetry, holding that abstract forms, lines, and colors may represent corresponding inner states, emotions and ideas.

For over twenty five years Steve Webb has documented the social and aesthetic climate of Latin America, complemented with extensive travels in Europe, Africa, and Asia. His working method in these areas could best be described as 'street style' in approach. The American West offers a more meditative approach to visualization. What results are unpeopled images, although the hand of man is often evident. By attempting to frame (re-frame) the world in his own way, hopefully, he reveals it in a unique and truthful spirit.
