Invitations: My Other World
art by Ines Zeller Bass
August 23 through November 20
Artist Reception: Saturday, August 25, 4:00–6:00pm
Artist statement: The characters in my pictures are like puppets on a stage. They wait patiently in the wings of my phantasy until they are ready to step out to perform their act. But unlike the puppet they don’t retreat back into the darkness but stay in their framed world always there to perform.
The way I approach a piece of puppet theater is the same as my approach to a picture: every moment on stage, just as the moment held on a piece of paper, suggests a life before entering and after leaving the stage or the picture. The mystery of what was before and what might be after remains with the audience or the spectator. An invitation is offered.
