"The Daedalus Suite"
Barbara Van Arnam/Mixed Media
For the month of January 2012, Gallery 25 members, Nanete Maki-Dearsan and Barbara Van Arnam will exhibit a compelling body of work. Barbara Van Arnam's artwork was inspired by the parable of Daedalus of whom the ancient Greek poet Pausanias writes, "He was famous for his talent, but also for his wanderings and misfortunes." Part myth, part fact, the story of Daedalus serves as the inspiration for this suite of paintings. Nanete Maki-Dearsan's artwork was previously exhibited at the Warnors Window Project from September-October 2009 and was included in the exhibit catalog. These large scale drawings create a visually dynamic impact based on the artist's statement of "bound horses, intimate feelings of frustrations, trapped in jobs, in situations, relationships, in other people's politics, these are personal feelings. We are all trapped together. We are not only bound, but we are bound together."
