Name: "Bronze" Photographs by Jan Cedras Ayers & Sculpture by Ken Ayers
Date: March 1, 2017 - April 30, 2017
Event Description:
“Bronze” Photographs by Jan Cedras Ayers & Bronze Sculpture by Ken Ayers, on display at the Bandon Public Library Art Gallery.

A photographer of wide-ranging interests, Jan Cedras Ayers began photographing her husband Ken's bronze sculptures to make a record of them, when she found herself enthralled by the way the light moved over them, the colors and reflections captured in their surfaces. She saw revealed a potential for making photographic studies of them as stand-alone works of abstract art. As she makes these explorations of composition and light, her photographs become topographies of stunning depth and complexity.

Ken Ayers' sculptures begin as bits of kelp, stems, pieces of driftwood, slender, vine-wrapped trunks, bits of twine or cloth, and become fantastical bronze flowers and plants from another world. These twisting, dancing creations may be made from a single element, or may incorporate several pieces from different sources bound together to create something unknown in nature, but which clearly reference the familiar, natural world. Their mysterious forms are studies in grace, often seeming almost airborne despite their weight.
