'Anamnesis' and 'Nothing is Forever or Even Close'
Beginning on January 15, 2010, Zane Bennett Contemporary Art, at 435 South Guadalupe Street in Santa Fe, New Mexico will present two separate shows opening on the same night: Anamnesis, an exhibition of new work by Santa Fe sculptor Dunham Aurelius; and Nothing is Forever or Even Close, new works of photography and assemblage by Robert Hoerlein. There will be a reception on Friday, January 15, 2010, from 5-7 pm, and the shows continue through February 6, 2010.
Dunham Aurelius is a promising young sculptor residing in Santa Fe, NM. Aurelius’ sculptures focus on the human condition influenced by his observations of war, suffering, oppression and poverty. Aurelius identifies with and is aesthetically connected to aspects of primitive tribal arts and indigenous cultures. His work is a response to visceral and primal reactions to his view of these worlds. Aurelius composes his sculptures with a variety of materials inclusive to clays, waxes, wood, steel, bone and found objects. He uses the lost wax casting method for transforming his art into bronze.
