WB-Senja-WhiteWaterMosaic

New Artist – Senja Antilla – Represented at White Bird Gallery
Senja Antilla creates mosaics from reclaimed ocean-tumbled wood. Her materials come from houses that have slid into the ocean at Washaway Beach, North Cove, WA. The artist frequently visits the eroding beach to collect distressed wood. The assortment of wood used in her mosaics includes outdoor siding, inside walls, baseboards, door frames and window frames, as well as found hardware. The resulting artworks are contemporary compositions that recall time, history and the power of natural cycles.
Senja Antilla is a native of Washington state who has been visiting Washaway Beach since the 1960’s. At that time the beach was 5 miles out from it’s present location. The artist documents many of the houses that are subject to being destroyed by the erosion of the coastline. Often her fine art wood mosaics will include photographs of the original house before it was washed away, distressed and appropriated into artwork.

New Sculptures by David Crawford at Bronze Coast Gallery

Cobbled Ox

Oregon artist and sculptor David Crawford has two new sculptures at Bronze Coast Gallery in Cannon Beach.

Mending

‘Mending’, a female form, conveys themes of choosing a path and how imperfections and flaws become integral parts of the self one makes on the journey to adulthood. “Flaws can become character, and scars can become spice,” Crawford said. “Some of the most impactful people have had many obstacles in their way to becoming the person we revere. “An ode to animals and their history of working with humans, ‘Cobbled Ox’ depicts a beast of burden in a strained pose. “ I have attempted to deal with the tensions inherent in our utilization of a fellow being,” said Crawford. Both sculptures are limited editions of nine.

Crawford lives and maintains a studio and foundry in Halfway, Oregon where each of his distinctive sculptures are made by hand. Crawford says he owes his very rural upbringing and surroundings as the main influences on the images he creates.
