SHY RABBIT is pleased to announce the opening of “Down To The Bone,” featuring new works by Colorado artists Chris Haas and Amy K. Wendland.
This highly anticipated two-person exhibit launches on Saturday, June 18, with an open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and continues through July 31.
The public is welcome ,at no charge. Light refreshments will be served throughout the day.
Haas and Wendland will be in attendance to answer any questions that visitors may have, and to explain their thoughts and working processes. Please stop by to meet them and to learn more about their uniquely eclectic work!
By combining found objects and natural materials, Haas and Wendland get “Down To the Bone,” breathing new life into the previously abandoned and forgotten, and creating a vibrant new world without rules.
Incorporating mixed media, Haas infuses a mystical aura into reclaimed animal skulls, meticulously reanimating them and brining them into a different dimension and character.
Using wood, bone, hair, dried plants and mechanical parts, Wendland enters into a dialog of discovery and recognition, addressing human foibles and fears with humor and integrity.
These works are intended to attract and disquiet. To seduce and repel. To bring harmony and imbalance. They are foreign and odd, yet curiously familiar.
Additional information about Haas and Wendland will appear in future SUN articles.
