Sari Maxfield

Show ran from 1/4/2012 to 1/29/2012

FLORA AND FAUNA    mixed media

Opening Reception Sunday, January 15, 2-5pm

In her mixed media paintings, Flora & Fauna, Sari Maxfield mimics nature’s simple yet complex forms and compositions but produces her own layered hybrid. She combines seemingly disparate found images into mysterious kaleidoscopic compositions. Acknowledging the associations of mandalas, rose windows and other circular shapes as symbols of creation and destruction, as well as of order and harmony, she cross-breeds the strange with the commonplace, making the new unity suspend somewhere between the mundane and the sacred.
