SITEPAINTERS     imagine/the e-zine

the art of place – vision, color & form

magine, a word that invites us to sense, to see what is not yet visible. Imagination is the space of inner freedom. In the quietness of our hearts and minds new impulses arise with a will to be.

"Behold the flower. It is a butterfly fettered to the earth.
Bedhold the butterfly. It is a flower freed by the cosmos."

magine invites you to stay in touch. We believe art, architecture, interior design and the living of everyday life belong together. Site Painters is dedicated to an evolving, collaborative art of place making.

Anthony Howe, sculptor

We first caught a glimpse of this artist’s work along a rural road, in a meadow we were going past on the way to a BB on Orcas Island. We were surprised, delighted, almost as though it was a unicorn or flaming phoenix we had discovered. Absent knowledge of the artist and his international reputation, we were able to experience them as beautiful phenomena, a special act of nature.

These works are all about movement, multiple simultaneous movements that expand and contract at the same time. High above the ground atop their poles, they perform dances of life.

"Kinetic sculpture resides at the intersection of artistic inspiration and mechanical complexity. The making of one of my pieces relies on creative expression, metal fabrication, and a slow design process in equal parts.
It aims to alter one’s experience of time and space when witnessed. It also needs to weather winds of 90 mph and still move in a one mile per hour breeze and do so for hundreds of years.
