IMA Artist-in-Residence: Joanne Salé
Artist Talk Friday, October 11, 7pm
Please join us at the IMA Gallery on Friday, October 11 at 7pm for a Artist Talk with IMA Artist-in-Residence, Joanne Salé.
Joanne Salé has been working in residence at Island Mountain Arts creating a variety of works including this series of carved panels.
"The themes that emerge in my work are primarily perception, mediation, connection, adaptation and longing. I am deeply affected by my sensory experience of the natural world. Those experiences inform the way that my ideas are shaped, and provide a doorway into understanding. From this emerges a visual language in my work wherein specific sentient and non-sentient ‘characters’ serve to carry forward concepts beyond what they would typically signify. I base much of my work on the supposition that humans and other forms in nature are overlapping, no space exists between, and that they are in fact interchangeable not as a metaphor, but literally. The unintended result of this sensibility is that, in retrospect, my work appears to express fables of my own creation." Joanne Salé
Stick around that night also for the Premiere of Breastless at the Sunset Theatre at 8pm.
