I began the series Life Lines two or three years ago, after coming into the possession of recent MRI scans of my brain.
I began the series Life Lines two or three years ago, after coming into the possession of recent MRI scans of my brain. The scans, which I spent hours pouring over, both fascinated and horrified me. Even though I’d always known the seriousness of it, I was suddenly confronted with visual evidence of the long ago but significant brain injury I’d sustained as a baby. A large dark mass on the left hemisphere still declaring loudly, after 40 years, my narrow escape. Around the same time, I also experienced a difficult and continuous period of profound familial loss.
Both these episodes left me thinking about the body in a very different way than I had before: I became interested in the biology and physiology of our bodies and the seemingly cruel, capricious way a body can behave, vacillating between strength and fragility. I began to make drawings from the MRIs, at first visually recording the brain itself, to understand how its structure and pathways form to activate the circumstances of the individual being we become. As the series has developed, the imagery has dissolved into abstraction, capturing something more existential.
Please join me for the opening reception on Saturday, November 2 from 5.00-7.00pm (the Amity Gallery will be open to visitors from 1 pm)
The Gallery is open every weekend from 1.00-4.00 pm.
John Toth is an intermedia artist who uses a computer as an instrument to explore the layering of sculpture, painting, music, sound, dance, video, film, and written text. This allows for relationships to be made between media. His multi-perceptual collages explore the effects of presenting simultaneous impressions. The intent is to broaden the language of artistic expression and consider the ways in which our multiple sense effect the way we experience life around us.

Three Artists celebrate Life Forms in an exhibit at the Amity Gallery
Three artists, Jan Corash, Roslyn Fassett, and Phyllis Lehman, in their own way, celebrate the human form in an exhibit at the Amity Gallery in Warwick, NY. The subject, the female nude, explores and reveals the vital and various ways one responds to this eternally revered subject.
I am interested on what a body says about life. states Jan Corash. Using charcoal and ink for a deep tonal range, she prefers a sketchy drawing, one that it not too neat, one where the hand clearly has presence.
Revealing nature and the feminine united has bee a lifelong interest of Roslyn Fassett.Her watercolor and graphite collages poetry the spirit and radiance of the earth and sky joined with mystical images of women.
Phyllis Lehman explains that in her acrylic and crayon painting of nudes, as with her landscapes, she prefers to be in the immediate presence of the subject as it reveals an aliveness fresh with nuances and surprises.
Their July show, Life Forms, will be exhibited at the Amity Gallery, 110 Newport Bridge Rd. in Warwick, The gallery, in the the quiet hamlet of Amity, is open weekends from 1-4pm. A reception will be held July 6 from 5-7pm.
