In her diverse body of work, Jennifer Deppe Parker examines how the subconscious mind can be engaged. Whether through her paintings, photographs, or mixed media collages, she believes that the most effective method for a person to connect with a complex message is through visual imagery. She explores layers of understanding and contemplates how colors, forms, patterns and abstract representations can influence our perspective. In her “Prism" series, she creates strikingly graphic macro portraits of the eye using hand-cut paper materials that reflect the underlying subjects’ preferences. The portraits of each eye display space and movement in the ambiguous black void as well as the swirling shafts of color. These works are intended to give a viewer a unique opportunity to ponder the depth and intensity of each image and to escape into a zone where they are guided more by intuition. http://www.jenniferdeppeparker.com

Gin Stone's Tri-Stag is a three dimensional piece mounted on the wall which can be considered humane taxidermy, as no living animal was harmed in it’s making. The other-worldly creature exhibits three naturally shed Barbary stag antlers inverted to cascade back towards its ‘body’. The back of its neck features cyanotype printed cotton canvas with images of bird wings, and its lower neck shows cyano-printed grasses. Details are punctuated with copper nails and pounded copper eyes. The addition of hand-dyed cotton textile in geometric shapes is inspired by the women quiltmakers of Gee’s Bend. This form of American abstract textile work is dear to the artist as she considers it one of the most honest forms of art making. The piece is finished with a gloss glaze. Stone is a mixed-media artist living and working in Massachusetts. She uses rope, reclaimed fishing gear, fabric, dyes, cyanotypes and found objects in both her fiber taxidermy and sculptural pieces. http://www.ginstoneart.com/
