A COMMON THREAD: HESPERUS IS PHOSPHORUS – The work of Dianne Albin & John Atkinson

7-8-16 through 7-29-16, Opening Reception Friday July 8, 5:30 – 7 pm

John Atkinson on John Atkinson:

“He considers himself to be a figure artist and is a founding member of the SOMA figural
arts collaborative. Currently focused on oil painting and pastel drawings, John Atkinson
started his formal training in art by enrolling in a ceramics class at Brescia College in the
fall of 1985. This personal indulgence in clay led to a series of classes and eventually
to a degree from Brescia. Atkinson explains, “I have never been inclined toward
commercial success in art, if success is measured by whether my work sells or not. I’m
more interested in making an impact on the viewer. I was once told that my art had no
‘content’. Of course my pride was bruised by this comment, but after considerable
deliberation I realized that works of art must have content beyond the aesthetic, and I
strive to produce works that provoke thought and personal interpretation.”

Dianne Albin on Being Human:

“We are constantly changed by life, in ways that others may never know or see. In my work I start with the surface, or if you prefer the obvious, the face we show others. From there, it’s an exploration into the unknown and the unseen…a journey into the deeper, richer aspects of what it means to be human.”
