KEVIN CHRISTISON’S THE NEW FORBIDDEN

NICHOLS GALLERY & ATRIUM

Isaan-2003-cast-bronzw_web.png

The works for The New FORBIDDEN exhibition at San Juan Island Museum of Art  bloom from his studio in an array of upcycled waste materials;  PET plastics, glass, aluminum, paper, and natural fiber.

 The use of sustainable energy in the art-making processes is emphasized and underscored throughout the exhibition.

As the title The New FORBIDDEN suggests, this body of work investigates the ever-changing boundaries of what is deemed acceptable, or allowed, in society, and what is forbidden. Artworks address such topics as climate change, ethics, social acceptance, the concept of property, personal and communal boundaries, management of natural resources (including waste materials), and the use of sustainable energy.

Sponsors:   The Honeywell Charitable Fund, Town of Friday Harbor,  Printonyx, Browne’s Home Center, Harbor Rentals and friends of Christison.

M.J. ANDERSON

M.J. Anderson exhibits glowing figurative and abstract sculptures. The whimsical “Sea Siren” greets visitors to the museum. For over 40 years she says the “concept of my sculpture has been to offer a strong female voice that addresses the identity of women from our own perspectives.” She speaks to how women feel, rather than how they look. Stone gives strength to her message and offers images of beauty and resilience. Several pieces were created especially for this SJIMA exhibition.
