"Welcome to HAWT(art)" ~Cidney
The HAWT(art) Gallery is located within HAWT's ultramodern studio which features and supports artists with a diverse range of mediums. Our goal is to share culture with the communities of Long Beach and everyone beyond. One does not need to attend classes to view the featured artists. There is no charge to view the exhibitions. If artwork is sold, all proceed go towards the artist. Inquires to purchase may be done directly to the artist.
James Porschen 2020
James Porschen’s work abstracts reality, transcending the literal and focusing on the underlying essence of nature, letting it’s sublime reflection emerge. The psychedelic colors are created by single celled organisms known as halo-bacteria. Using references from Color-field theory Porschen's large scale images attempt to convey a sense of reverence for the natural world to establish a reconciliation in direct response to the divisive milieu currently seen in contemporary culture. In order to establish a common link in which past, present and future are blurred the landscapes remain void of notions that deal directly with time and space. A visual interference and a breakdown of context is intentional. Having a disorienting effect at times, the perspective of the print is transformed by removing references to scale and origin. With the loss of narrative associations, these images may then serve as vessels for contemplation.
These images represent an aerial study taken from a Cessna of a color phenomenon created by halo bacteria in high salt concentrations. The framing is intended to represents a modernization of color field theory.
