Duncan Johnson, Robert LaBranche
and David Orser
No theme was intended when choosing to exhibit the work of these three divergent artists: Duncan Johnson (Hartford, Vermont) uses discarded wood gathered from landfills and construction sites for his “constructed” paintings; David Orser (Parsonsfield, Maine) builds organic ceramic forms from spiked glazed pieces built from porcelain coils and disc assemblages; and Robert LaBranche (Eliot, Maine) builds upon his former practice of abstract collage in a new body of work which explores his local landscape using acrylic and charcoal.
Joe Hemes (Portland, Maine) explores light as a medium, the room as a canvas and the transformation of sculpture from daytime patinated copper to a nighttime explosion of color, light and shadow. These sculptures are inspired by the geometry and chaos of nature.
