bronze works are solid and stark, expressive figures of humans and
animals, who pose and contort into unlikely, and sometimes impossible
configurations. Seeming to posses tribal influences, Helenís sculptures
provide a sensory depiction of the figure, rather than representational.
The works of Alan
Post are evocative paintings in the areas of still lifes, landscapes,
and figurative works. These are made timeless through Postís intense and
unyielding appreciation for his surroundings. Postís paintings are rich
with both color, and personal experience of the world around him.
This exhibition and
retrospective catalogue honors not only the artwork of Helen and Alan
Post, but also celebrates their fruitful and well-spent lives.
