MARY WALTERS talks about what inspires her:
“I find inspiration for my art in landscape. I enjoy the landscape of mountains, where geological time manifests itself through gigantic landforms; the landscape of the edge, where land meets water; and the landscape of memory, an intangible, elusive, yet powerful melting pot of images and ideas. But it is the impermanence of these landscapes which is of paramount interest – rocks which seem solid are constantly engaged in a process of reformation. The relatively insignificant human marks – the rust, the cracks, the scratched graffiti, the distressed surfaces and the torn edges – also contribute to the layered interplay and re-invention. This is the natural cycle of growth, decay and re-birth. I have come to Iceland to experiment and to try to take myself out of my comfort zone – and especially to try to learn to use After Effects, but remaining true to what moves me ”.
My name is George Spica, an American artist working in sculpture, installation, and performance. My work is concerned with the performative potential of the body, as well as, more recently, synthetic projections of that potential through geographical space. I find industry to be an incredibly beautiful and straightforward way of looking at the physical expressions, and desires, of the human body. By this notion, my practice aims to elucidate the romance present in industrial materials and functional aesthetics by creating distilled, protracted experiences thereof. http://georgespica.com/Silent-Portraits-I-VI
