"Diptych "Owl and Raven" 2009 | Archival Digital Print Mounted on Arches Water Color Paper | 9 3/16"x13 15/16"

Artist Statement: When I first arrived in Maine, more than 40 years ago, I found many skulls and bones in the fields and woods and felt that these were gifts to me from animals that under normal circumstances I would not be able to get close to. In 2008 I began to use skulls as subject matter for my photographs. My art is an attempt at memorializing the spirit and the beauty of what the animals have left behind. I have discovered that in many ways we are all the same." --Bob Brooks

"Boatscape 1" | Image Area Approximately 9"x27" | Framed and Matted: 16"x34"

Artist Statement: "My work is about light and color. That is what draws me in. Water has often been my subject, but recently my gaze shifted up a bit capturing something all of us see when we are near the water's edge...light reflecting off of water. In this series the images are of the boat hulls. I think it is interesting that the light reflecting off of the water on to the boat gives the illusion of clouds. And for me whether or not there is water in the image I have the sense of the presence of water. I have enjoyed looking at the reflections of light off of water since I was a child, but when I put the camera to my eye I was transported into a different world. A horizon appears, created by a stripe on the hull or perhaps by the water's edge. It is a disorienting feeling to know I am standing very close to the edge of the dock looking at something very close yet what I am seeing in my camera appears to be a vast, distant horizon. Though I am looking at a man made object, I am seeing are the effects of light and water." --Sue Anne Hodges

Maine Artists Quotes

"My aim is to escape from the medium with which I work; to leave no residue of technical mannerisms to stand between my expression and the observer."

Maine-Magazine

Since 2008, Maine Arts Scene online magazine has been promoting Maine artists and arts organizations in new and enterprising ways. We quietly revolutionized the local magazine world by offering a truly democratic voice to Maine artists and arts organizations throughout the state. For a small fee, individual artists and arts organizations can submit their press releases to present their work and promote their events on our popular site and social networks. As we reached the 10,000 visits per month milestone in 2009, we decided to push the online magazine boundaries one step further by launching the first statewide juried multi-disciplinary virtual online showcase. We created a unique virtual experience that resembles an actual gallery space, with various rooms to navigate and art work displayed to scale. In 2012, Maine Art Scene is going one step further.  Maine artists and private collectors of Maine art will soon be able to create online stores and sell their work. Arts organizations including galleries, museums, and non-profits will also be able to set up online gifts shops,  box offices and donation pages.
