ARTIST STATEMENT: Every situation has multiple perspectives, every moment a crossroad. I long to decipher the magic, heart and truth of the breath I am in. Perhaps it is an environmental or social issue, the broken flight of a bird, or the whisper of the fantastic. The way light shapes us all against the darkness can be found in the paint.
At Lost Moth Gallery, animals, landscapes, and dreams find form to tell their stories in the soft mystical painting style of resident artist Jeanne Kuhns. Invented creatures and mythological figures come to life in Dawn Patel’s paintings. The figure finds its place in the clay of Mareen McGrath. Vessels drenched in beautiful glazes by Tony Menzer are showcased. This early 1900’s farmhouse turned Lost Moth Gallery shows the multimedia work of local artists with the common theme of love for nature and the magic to be found there, a reflection of the spirit of Door County, Wisconsin.
