..:: ASTRAL FREESTYLE ::..
Martin Stensaas with Naomi Hinds
Opening Reception :: September 8th 8 – 11pm
Closing reception :: First Friday of October 5th 7-10pmMartin Stensaas and Naomi Hinds both create work within the context of energy. Drawing from the earth, movement and light, each artist uses their own medium to express a deep connection inspired by life’s purest forms. Aiming to evoke consciousness while remaining rooted in the material and meditative processes, their juxtaposition of life forces creates a dynamic perspective of how energies come together to create power. “Astral Freestyle” will exhibit the ethereal painted projections of consciousness, natural raw gem and mineral specimens and powerful organic adornments.
Originally from Utah, Martin Stensaas developed his art at an early age in human figure, landscape, portraits, and visionary art. His spiritual process has aligned with his art and evolves in the direction of re-enchantment. Martin intends to invoke an aspect of life force and imbue it into the art to awaken some echo of this energy in the viewer. He seeks to activate the conscious archetypal energies and connect to conscious awareness through his work.
Naomi Hinds is a Canadian born; Caribbean raised artist who’s woven wire jewelry has developed over the last twelve years into a refined art. Inspired by the raw beauty of the gems and minerals, her work has an alluring juxtaposition in combination of the natural, rough crystal form and the cut, classic gems. Featuring artisan silver & gold jewelry, each one-of-a-kind creation is finely designed and hand woven to be bold, elegant wearable art.
Also exhibiting will be beautifully curated gem and mineral specimens provided by Architectural Minerals.
Please join us for an opening reception with the artists, second Saturday September 8th from 8-11pm.
