    Raymond Saa    "Untitiled 2015"    34.5" x 42"    gouache and charcoal on sewn paper 
 
     
   

Raymond Saa is currently working with collage, drawing and painting mediums. He incorporates charcoal on paper, mixed media on wood panels and paper collage pieces into his new body of work at Craighead Green; the latter being works on paper, which are sewn together using a sewing machine. Saa’s charcoal drawings have become more detailed yet remain minimal in content and his love for nature is seen in all of his work. Saa speaks about his passion and admiration for seeing the smallest detail nature can present, such as one small flower growing out of a brick sidewalk; the odds are stacked but the plant grows and blooms and lives. Saa comments that, "My work and the way I think about it has naturally evolved over the years. There are many more aspects of myself that I can now recognize and accept; primarily that myself and my work are one and the same. My work is not about something, it is about me." Saa received his MFA from Parsons School of Design and his BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MA. He currently is Associate Professor of the Art Department at Drew University, Madison, NJ.

    Andy Myers    "Portrait of Nature #6"    19" x 8" x 6"    plaster and wood  
     
    Sculptor Andy Myers is transforming branches of wood into elegant forms that drape from casts of hands as if the wood is actually water, or in some pieces he uses the casts of faces and creates a new face made from branches, allowing the viewer to see through the piece. Myers comments that "My work reveals how humans depend on the strength of wood, provided by trees, to make everyday life possible. In this body of work I show the power of nature by enveloping the human form with branches, then taking the human form away, allowing the tree to demonstrate its steadfastness". Always working with the human form, a hand or a face, Myers work is both a unique and fascinating manipulation of nature. Andy Myers received a double Master of Fine Art and Sculpture from the University of Dallas, Irving, Texas. Previously he attended University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma in Chickasha, Oklahoma and earned his BA while there.

    Arturo Mallmann    "Archaic Journey"    24" x 36"    acrylic & resin on panel  
     
   

Painter Arturo Mallmann presents his fourth body of work at Craighead Green Gallery. The technique of applying acrylic paint between layers of resin is unmistakably recognized as a product of Mallmann. Born in Uruguay and living most of his life in Buenos Aires, his subject matter is a collection of memories from his childhood. The ocean, huge sky and stark landscape on the shores captivate the viewer. Although serious and contemplative, upon closer examination, Mallmann’s sense of humor is seen. A small dog, small groups of people, and new for this exhibition, verbiage that is discreetly hidden in the paintings is often discovered in Mallmann’s paintings. The artist’s goal is to move the viewer as far away as possible from their common everyday environment, falling into his world of childhood memories. Mallmann states that, "I am not completely aware of what I want to express until the piece is finished and I look backwards. When I look at this latest body of work I can see that I have been slowly evolving towards more natural and effective ways of expressing the mysteries I perceive inside myself as well as the mysteries I see all around me."
