Vacation, All We Ever Wanted: Escapism Through the Art of America Martin, Greg Miller & Jane Maxwell
“Vacation, all I ever wanted Vacation, had to get away Vacation, meant to be spent alone Vacation, all I ever wanted Vacation, had to get away Vacation, meant to be spent alone” -Vacation, The Go-Go’s, 1982
The Go-Go’s said it best- it is all we’ve ever wanted. The appeal of a vacation has perhaps, never been greater. Sandy beaches, new cities, and ski chalets now seem otherworldly, and we could all use a break, right? Artists America Martin, Jane Maxwell, and Greg Miller invite you to take a vacation through the transcendent experience of art, transporting viewers to new and exciting destinations.
Jane Maxwell’s new series playfully merges fashion, femininity, and sport with her skiing and snowboarding figures. Bold colors and patterned collage work underscore athletic movement, as well as the glamour that comes with après ski at a snowy resort.
Destination #2- Desert:
America Martin’s horses conjure visions of wild mustangs running through picturesque desert landscapes. Blocked in bold color and geometric line-work, Martin adheres to her signature style while calling upon a southwestern sensibility.
Destination #3- The Beach:
Nothing says summer vacation like some time by the pool or at the beach. Greg Miller is a master of mixed media and capturing the reflection and suspension of water. Paired with graphic and text elements, his work is timelessly cool- just like swimming on a hot day.
Destination #4-New Orleans:
There is much to be noted in cultural influence between the worlds of music and fine art. America Martin’s jazz musicians embody the vibrancy, culture and spirit of New Orleans in both energy and direct visual cues. As her colors reverberate against one another, you can almost hear music filling the streets of the Big Easy.
So stay at home, relax, turn up the Go-Go’s, and let America Martin, Greg Miller, and Jane Maxwell inspire with the possibility of a dream escape.
