Part of the Series "Holding On, Letting Go"| Photograph | 25"X35"

Artist Statement: "Holding On, Letting Go" is a series that focuses on formative relationships that shift, grow, evolve, crumble, and of course inevitably disappear. The children in my photographs are held, led, and supported by people who can't possibly continue to exist in the same way that they existed in the moment I captured them on film. The negative image in combination with the positive image creates a tension that evokes this idea— that relationships are here, and then they are gone, and that every single moment is experienced, and then it transmutes in a flash into a memory. The process of creating images doesn't necessarily help me to demystify the world around me, but it allows me to live more fully inside of the questions that I find to be most compelling: How can we live with ease, as our relationships perpetually move and change? How can we fully experience the present when we are so formed (and often consumed) by our histories? How can we possibly let go of the past? And what are we holding on to... a reality, or a constructed reality?" -- Marcie Bronstein

Philippe Guillerm - Rockand, ME (web)
| "Show Off" | Wood | 33"HX11"WX7"D

Philippe Guillerm - Portland, ME (web)
Sculptor

"Show Off" | Wood | 33"HX11"WX7"D

Artist Statement: "Guillerm's music-inspired sculptures are whimsical and curvaceous string instruments. He uses this continuous theme as a way of expressing human nature and needs; you may see an instrument, but Philippe sees an attitude. In addition to the musical theme, many of his sculptures depict sea scenes and animals. His other works include functional art like "Sculptural speakers", finely carved furniture, large dimensional wall murals and monumental outdoor pieces. He works with exotic and local wood such as mahogany, aspen, jacaranda, poplar, wengue, purple heart, and walnut, using the wood's color like a painter uses paint. His works reflect dreams, illusions, and reality and invite the viewer to stop and reflect about human nature. -- Philippe Guillerm

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.
