Artist Statement: "My images are observations of the world around me; of the sheer beauty of local natural forms. Within and among these forms I am drawn to the rhythms of nature and I use these as my cue to finalize an image. My prints are presented as ends in themselves; they have no specific agenda and need no explanation. I think the viewer's relationship to them should be complete, and this is why I focus on scale, printing and so on. The sensation of completeness very quickly gives way to visual and rhythmic play." -- Mary Woodman

Artist Statement: "The camera is my key to the secret garden, my way through the looking glass. Both moving in close and looking up from under reveal hidden worlds that keep me enthralled and in a constant state of wonder. I am also a writer and tend to turn inward for long periods of time while in the process. Photography balances this tendency by turning me outward, allowing me to see and interact with the world as it is right now and be mindful of each moment as it happens. Photo manipulation is often an important part of my process and helps bring my vision to fruition when I see more in an image than is actually there. I have always wanted to be a painter, so manipulating images by extracting forms, adding textures, and enhancing colors allows me that deeply satisfying painterly experience. My current creative work is taken and edited exclusively with the iPhone. True iPhoneography restricts any post-processing to the image other than that done within the iPhone itself. Because of the iPhone's ability to connect to the web, iPhoneography is also a tool of global communication that allows interaction and community, while encouraging expansive creativity with deeply gratifying results." -- Kimberly Post Rowe

"Pyrotechnic 1" | Photograph | 24"X24"

Artist Statement: "My interest in the beauty and complexity of the natural world drives my work. I seek out the edges in nature - between land and sea, sea and sky, day and night, and between one season and the next. An essential component of my creation of photographs is the interpretation of these edges into a square format image." -- Jim Nickelson

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."

Andew Wyeth

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.
