Artist's Reception: Xoe May

Galena Country Meet the artist and enjoy refreshments! Artist's Statement My work explores various topics including the relationship between induced synesthesia, diametric contradictions, and midlife subcultures. With influences as diverse as Leonardo Da Vinci, Machiavelli, and Buckminster Fuller, I intend to generate new synergies from both simple and complex dialogues. The traditional understanding of the human condition fascinates me. What starts out as yearning soon is corroded into a carnival of power, leaving only a sense of what could have been and the inevitability of a new synthesis. As these conditions are examined under the microscope of my mind, the viewer is left with a tribute to the possibilities of our condition. Telephone number: 815.777.0200.
