In her exhibition, Contact, San Antonio artist Jayne Lawrence explores the moment of connection between seemingly disparate entities in her meticulously crafted drawings and mixed media sculptural works.  Using symbols related to the human form; the insect, representing the alter ego; and architecture, representing structure and environment; Lawrence conjoins human anatomy with insect and plant life to create forms that pose frozen in suspended animation.

Hannah Driess and Nemo | Dia De Los Muertos Altar: La Ofrenda

Oct. 30 - Nov. 8, 2015
Navarro Campus Lobby
Free and open to the public

Dia de los Muertos (“Day of the Dead”) is celebrated at the Southwest School of Art with La Ofrenda, an artist-designed installation at the art school in the Navarro Campus Lobby. Each year, an artist is invited to serve as Lead Artist for this significant cultural event. This year, self-described “Eco-Folk artists” Hannah Dreiss and Nemo, create interactive moving mosaics from infinitely recyclable aluminum cans.  As the artists note, “Days and sometimes months go into the collecting, planning, and fabrication of our art work. We use a variety of hole-punches as well as a hammer and nails to mount the aluminum discs to plywood in a grid pattern that creates the subject matter of our pieces with the colors of the composition represented by the cans’ original color.” The results are rich mosaics comprised of up-cycled elements that references not only the source material and imagery but also consumption, time, and place.

Shown: Hannah Dreiss and Nemo, Sugar Skull, 2015, cut aluminum cans, paint, and plywood, 16" X 20"
