Desta Gallery is pleased to present A Sense of Self and Place, an exhibition of paintings by Isabelle Maynard and photographs by Tim Burns.

Isabelle Maynard Artist Statement:

Time is a hole. A hole in which we are thrown without having any other choice than live with it, to relieve ourselves of its implacable impermanence. How to focus on this precious present that makes us feel so alive because when it is stated, it becomes past and already makes a promise about a future.

So leaving a trace becomes an urgency, a need, to mark time for a moment.
My work has just found its essence and purpose.

The truth of the moment.
Create and share.
Leave an immutable trace in this passing time.

It is by sharing those moments that life and time become a gift.

Tim Burns Artist Statement:

Abstractions that occur naturally are something that I look for while taking photographs. I seek abstractions that nature creates and try to capture them with my camera. The images, weather they are illuminated from behind, taken through glass or reflections of light from the surface in the water drops adding to their luminosity, they glow from within. There are also fleeting moments, a dance of sorts between the ocean, fog and light.

This series was shot in West Marin on the coast from Bolinas.

They all are my daytime Dreamscapes.
